Early Signs Of Pregnancy To Look Out For

Pregnancy is a great feeling particularly for women, who are longing for a child for long and so whenever, they feel something different in their body, they start looking for early signs of pregnancy and according to a survey this term is being searched by women in larger number. With a view to help these women, there are many home pregnancy test kits available in the market in such a way that they can get a confirmation themselves, before they actually approach their family physician. However, the problem with these kits is that they will not be in a position to tell a lady if she is pregnant until three days before she missed her period. Some women may find it difficult to spend days without knowing whether they are pregnant or not. 

Here is some early pregnancy symptoms generally found in women
  1. Exhaustion: A very early sign can be that women will generally feel very much tired and this tiredness is generally caused by changes taking place in the body to prepare itself for carrying a womb for the following nine months. 

  2. Nausea: Generally, women after confirming their pregnancy will have nausea and vomiting, which is generally known to most of us. But, the unknown fact is that even women, who have not so far missed their period, will have this feeling and they will experience an upset stomach. Even though, this pregnancy symptom generally is felt by most of the women, some might not feel it as well. 

  3. Bloating stomach: Generally bloating stomach is a sign of period for some ladies, but it occurs in the early pregnancy period in some women before they miss their period. This bloating is caused since the body will begin to retain the fluids for ensuring the healthiness of the womb. 

  4. Frequent restroom trips: As mentioned earlier, the body begins to retain the fluids and this will cause the woman to frequently go to bathroom for emptying her stomach. Moreover, the frequency of bathroom visits will grow as the pregnancy progresses. 

  5. Cramping: Mild abdominal pain, which is otherwise called as cramping is one among the different early signs of pregnancy. Generally, most of the women ignore this sign with the feeling that they are getting the pain because they are nearing the beginning of their menstrual cycle. 

  6. Blood spots: Mild blood spots is another sign and this symptom is experienced by some ladies and on seeing this, they feel that their period has started. But, this type of spot will be different from heavy bleeding, which is generally experienced during periods.

I had unprotected sex on Oct 11, which is about the time I would be ovulating. Since then, my bra size has increased, push up bras, which are usually fine, make my nipples really uncomfortable. I Have a heightened sense of smell, I'm nauseas, I'm bloated, I have been getting really tired around 7-8 in the evening, whereas usually I don't get tired until around 3 in the morning. I have changes in my appetite, a few days ago I had cramps just below my belly button, that felt like someone stabbed me with a needle, I have constantly had pressure feelings in my lower abdomen, and so on. I am not opposed to having a baby, even if it was an accident. I just wish I could know sooner. My monthly is supposed to come in 3 days.
