Early signs of pregnancy

There are many old wives tales to say if one is pregnant. In movies people used to check the pulse of a lady and say if she is pregnant but practically it is not possible or is inaccurate to tell that way.. hence doctors consider it as a myth so don’t trust it. Some women say that they have intusions that they are pregnant but trusting it is not recommended. Above these our body shows up with lot many differ es due to the raising harmone which can state if a women is pregnant and are proved to be right. These could be a fun fact to guess ourself if we are pregnant.

The terms like bfp is called big fat positive and bfn is big fat negative are terms you could hear while so one saying about their pregnancy test strip result.

The following are the early symptoms that our body tells us when we get pregnant,

  1. No periods: This is the very first sign of pregnancy if you are having regular period cycle. If you have irregular periods then after day 35 you could perform a pregnancy test using the strip available in pharmacies to get confirmed. Note: Not all delay in periods mean you are pregnant so as soon as your period is missed check with your physician.
  2. Mild cramp and fatigue: This is a very common symptom with many ladies. The cramp usually occurs during implantation ie a week before your period is due. Fatigue occurs due to the increasing hcg harmone level. A hcg is the pregnancy harmone.
  3. Tiredness and sleepiness : Sleepiness is one common thing during the initial weeks of pregnancy. If u are a active person then you can notice to have an uncontrollable nap during day .And you may even feel like you are weak and sick.
  4. Vomiting sensation : Added up this also one of the major symptom that occurs when your period due date is crossed. Usually many women notice having vomitting in the morning when the harmone level is too strong and high. By the day passes you can feel the sensation settled down. Since this occurs mostly during the mornings it is commonly called as morning sickness.
  5. Aversions: Sudden aversion towards some food you usually eat is also a common symptom. As there is raise in harmone you will start feeling Aversions over your least liked foods and sometimes over ur favourites too.

These are the most common and most experienced symptoms by almost 80% of women in their early pregnancy.
