Pregnancy symptoms may vary from woman to woman. The reason why you are checking this article right now is because you have the just pregnant “feeling”. Many women do believe that they have an intuition about pregnancy signs and their intuition is often proven correct. The following are the common pregnancy symptoms:
#1 – Delay in Menstruation
This is the one of the most obvious pregnancy symptoms. If you are pregnant, you will most probably miss your period. Some woman might only experience a period that is shorter and lighter than their usual period. However, this is not always a sign of pregnancy because excess weight gain or loss, stress or other factors can lead to a delay in menstruation.
#2 – Tender and Swollen Breasts
If you are pregnant, you may notice that there is a change in the appearance and sensitivity of your breasts. They may become tender, swollen and the colour or sizes to the areola will change.
#3 – Fatigue
Fatigue is also one of the most common pregnancy symptoms. If you pregnant, you would tend to start going to bed sooner or you find it harder than usual to get out of bed in the morning. You might tend to take an afternoon nap and simple activity such as shopping can make you feel wiped out and lightheaded.
#4 – Frequent Urination
If you are pregnant, you may notice that the frequency of you visiting the restroom is more than usual. Pregnancy increases your blood volume and the size of your kidney, thus leading to an increase in urination.
#5 – Morning sickness
Most pregnant woman who experience morning sickness tends to feel nausea or dizziness. This is usually caused by a variety of factors. When you are pregnant, your body is craving for food and will be sensitive to aromas and foods. Thus, you will tend to feel sick easily. However, each woman is different and will have different food that can contribute to morning sickness.
Whether you are experiencing the above pregnancy symptoms or not, the best way to find out and confirm if you are pregnant is to buy a home pregnancy test or get the doctor to test for you. During this period of time, you must be very careful and avoid most herbs and supplements. For your own safety, always get advice and approval from your doctor before taking any supplements when experiencing pregnancy symptoms, during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
