The earliest signs of the pregnancy
Topic: The earliest signs of the pregnancy
You need to know that many of the earliest signs of pregnancy are very similar to the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome. Many pregnant women report mild subcutaneous seizures, pressure sensations, and sensation of breasts.
The fertilization of the oocyte is the 14th day after the first day of the menstrual period, but of course, it may happen at different times. Pregnancy is after 8 to 10 days after fertilization. The day can be detected with great certainty.
The pregnancy tests available today are quite sensitive, and they can detect pregnancy at the time of the expected bleeding. If the test is negative, but menstruation does not occur, it should be repeated in a few days. In case of doubt (and in the case of positive results), the gynecologist must be sought.
There are several symptoms that indicate conception. Below are the 15 most common early signs of pregnancy but it is important to know that everyone is responding differently to your body, and the symptoms may vary.
1. Exhaustion, tiredness
Fatigue are early signs of pregnancy that may occur during the first week of conception. You're getting tired sooner, and it's harder to get up in the mornings. During the day you feel sleepy and tired, and exercise is also difficult. All this is because of sudden hormone changes.
However, these symptoms can not only be caused by pregnancy, it could be signs of stress, fatigue, depression, colds and many other illnesses.
2. A headache
A sudden change in hormones may cause frequent headaches at an early stage of pregnancy.
However, remember that there is a lot of headaches that can be caused by the lack of fluid (dehydration), migraine, weather change, visual problems, etc. in adolescence.
3. Common urination
Hormone changes require you to pee more often, which is often considered to be a pulsation signal. This symptom is accompanied by the whole pregnancy, as the increased uterus exerts pressure on the urinary bladder as the pregnancy progresses.
Urine urinary tract infections, diabetes, increased fluid intake and excessive coffee consumption may occur.
4. Desire for certain foods, contempt for other meals
To date, it is unclear exactly what causes nausea or discomfort of certain foods. In the background, there is probably a defensive mechanism that serves the health of the fetus by keeping the mother away from potentially dangerous foods. Especially in the later stages of pregnancy, certain (occasionally unusual) foods may be required.
Other possible explanations: the lack of depression and certain nutrients can also increase the hunger for each meal.
5. Odor sensitivity
Early symptoms of pregnancy are that the odors and odors so favored cause nausea, and other smells are more susceptible to maternity. All this is explained by increased estrogen levels.
6. Dizziness, fainting
Early pregnancy is a common sign of dizziness, especially when you are hungry. All this can be traced back to the reduced blood glucose level. It helps if you eat more often. Always have some blood sugar levels increaser with you. For this purpose are perfectly suited fruits, cereals, etc.
7. Nausea, morning sickness
This is one of the best-known symptoms of early pregnancy. In some people, it is from the moment of conception, while others only weeks later.
It usually occurs in the morning but may occur at any time of day. You can help a lot when you eat some snacks in the morning, and during the day you will have some biscuits, dried fruit and a small bottle of mineral water. In the case of regular, small amounts of meals, sicknesses occur less frequently.
Rarely occurring is the pernicious vomiting of pregnancy, frequent vomiting in the body causes the body to not get enough fluid and nutrients, so a few days hospitalization is justified. The condition of mothers is then resolved by infusion therapy.
In the background of vomiting, there are, of course, many other reasons, such as food poisoning, stress, stomach problems.
8. Swollen, sensitive breasts
The swelling and sensitivity of the breasts occur 1-2 weeks after conception. In such cases, the breasts are painfully swollen and/or touch sensitive. Most prominent is this when showering, changing or sleeping at night when you try to put yourself in comfort. Not only the breasts, but also the nipples may be sensitive, and their color may become darker. All this is behind the hormones responsible for preparing for breastfeeding.
Other possible explanations: hormone disorder, birth control pill, premenstrual syndrome.
9. Back pain
Less frequent early gestational symptoms are the back pain of the back. Generally speaking, this is accompanied by the whole pregnancy.
Other possible causes: stress, other back problems, physical or mental strain.
10. The functioning of the digestive system changes
Some pregnancy-induced hormones cause smooth muscles to relax and decrease the peristaltic movement of the intestines, hence the transmission of bowel content. This is the reason for frequent constipation during pregnancy. Dietary changes can reduce this problem. It is recommended to drink at least one and a half or two liters of liquid (mainly water or unsweetened fruit juice, or 100% juice diluted with water), and many fruits, vegetables, whole wheat flour, yogurt and dried fruits.
11. The number of vaginal secretion increases and its acidity becomes more acidic
It is important that if a large amount of discharge is accompanied by a spontaneous burning or itching sensation or if the discharge is unpleasant odor or unusual color, you should definitely look for the gynecologist. Such symptoms may be accompanied by fungal or bacterial infections. Infection should always be treated in pregnant women. Especially infections caused by bacteria are dangerous because they can cause miscarriages and premature birth to the uterus.
For pregnant women, vaginal infections may occur more often than usual, even under hygienic conditions.
12. Higher body temperature and heart rate
An early sign of pregnancy is that the body temperature is a bit higher than otherwise. In this case, maternity is often suspected of having a cold, starting illness.
The heart rate increases during pregnancy. Blood pressure drops slightly in the initial period and then returns to normal. In advanced pregnancies, as the uterus pushes the diaphragm upwards, the nature of the breathing changes, the mother is more easily breathless. Due to the pressure of the growing uterus on the large veins, varicose veins may appear on the legs and on the thighs. A similar cause causes the hemorrhagic nodules, but in this process, there may also be constipation.
13. The delay and change of the menstrual period
Late or missed menstruation is the most common pregnancy mark. Although many people are bleeding during pregnancy, the type of bleeding is completely different from menstruation.
Other possible explanations: Excessive weight loss or weight gain, hormonal problem, stress, discontinuation of the contraceptive pill.
14. Embedding bleeding
Most females are not embedded in the fertilization of the fertilized egg, but occasionally there may be minor bleeding. This bleeding usually leaves a stain on the lingerie, small in size, distinct from normal menstruation and is expected to occur sooner than expected.
Smaller vaginal bleeding may also have other causes, usually infection, change of contraceptive pill, and minor injury during lovemaking.
15. Mood swings, irritability
In addition to the above-described symptoms, even hormones are worn in your body, so you wonder how irritable and sensitive you are? This emotional change is a time of preparation for responsibility. It is quite normal that you are full of unanswered questions about your parents 'and friends' reactions, about pregnancy and about your future. It can help you if you sleep a lot, eating well, and walk a lot.
