If your ‘otherwise regular period’ is delayed by more than ten days, it is time to consult a doctor, as it might be good news!
However, missing menstrual cycle is not an accurate signal of pregnancy. Sometimes, medications like contraceptives and eating disorders like anorexia can affect the menstrual cycle.
So missed period is sometimes a false alarm, you have to ask your doctor the reason behind missed periods.
If you notice a few drops of blood about between 1-2 weeks of your last period, this could be implanted bleeding. Implantation bleeding occurs when the embryo implants itself into the wall of the uterus.
However, this is not the scene with every expectant mom.
3. Nausea And/or Vomiting:
As early as three weeks into your pregnancy, you may experience nausea and/or vomiting due to no apparent reason. Any smell or taste can trigger such unpleasant response to pregnancy
Nausea is the most visible symptom of pregnancy. If you are rushing to the rest room often due to nausea, then it is an indication that the hormonal levels are rising.
It is a sure sign that your body is preparing for pregnancy. You don’t even have to do a test to confirm pregnancy.
A feeling of fullness or abdominal bloating is also a sign of being pregnant. The hormonal changes in your body cause the body to bloat. You may also experience cramps along with bloating.
Your clothes may feel tight across your waist, even though your uterus is still small .Now that you know, bloating is a sign of pregnancy, you should ask the doctor beforehand to prescribe you medicines to tackle bloating.
Never do self-medication when pregnant.
5. Soreness of bosoms:
Changes in your chest are often an early visible signs of pregnancy. You will find that your br**sts are tender and painful to touch.
A close look at the mirror will tell you, that your br**sts are bigger and fuller. Also the areolas and bosoms are darker.
There are small bumps on the bosoms that show you are pregnant.
6. Frequent Urination:
If you find yourself rushing to the washroom every 20-30 minutes, you are displaying a bigger symptom of pregnancy.
Frequent urination, especially in the first trimester, occurs because of the increased water retention and blood flow in your body.
If your lower back aches just like how it does before and during a period, it could imply pregnancy.
Some women experience back ache throughout the day if they are expecting and it does not go away with rest or massage.
