Every woman is unique and so are the signs & symptoms of pregnancy! The signs may vary in quality and severity. Some might notice the signs of pregnancy early in the first trimester, while others develop them later. Early signs of pregnancy might be similar to the ones experienced before the menstrual cycle. So it becomes difficult for women to recognize the actual signs.
Here are a few signs that will help you make sure if you are pregnant.
A missed period
A missed period can be considered as one of the earliest signs of pregnancy. But a missed period doesn’t always mean that a baby is on the way because some women have irregular menstrual cycles. So it’s always better to take a pregnancy test.
Light bleeding or blood spots
After about 5-10 days of conception, you might notice light spotting or a light period. This could be implantation bleeding. So there is nothing to worry about!
Nausea is the most common symptom of pregnancy. To some women, nausea is likely to hit in the first two weeks of pregnancy while for others it doesn’t happen until about a month or two after conception. Also remember, nausea is not only about the morning, but it can also be a problem at noon and night.
Bloating of abdomen
If your regular jeans don’t fit you well anymore, there are chances that a baby is on the way. You might notice abdominal bloating just before your periods which is not due to weight gain but hormonal changes.
In the early stages of pregnancy, you might find yourself urinating more often than usual. This is because the amount of blood in your body increases during pregnancy which causes your kidneys to process extra fluid that ends up in your bladder.
Mood swings or stress
Mood swings or stress is a commonly reported symptom in the early stages of pregnancy. This is mainly because of the changes in hormones.
