Earliest Signs of Pregnancy

What are the Earliest Signs of Pregnancy? Are you wondering, "Am I Pregnant?" Early pregnancy symptoms are listed in this pregnancy website.

There are certain classic symptoms of pregnancy that can make you suspect that you are pregnant.

Amenorrhoea

One of the early signs of pregnancy is when a woman misses her period. This can happen within 2 weeks of fertilization. Be aware that missing a period may not be an absolute sign that you are pregnant.

Frequency of Urination

As soon as progesterone levels rise and the baby starts to secrete the hormone, hCG (Human chorionic gonadotrophin), the blood supply to the pelvic area increases, which leads to pelvic congestion. The bladder becomes irritable and tries to expel even the smallest amount of urine.You might experience the desire to pass urine more often than usual. This symptom of pregnancy can happen as early as one week after conception.

Tiredness

Fatigue is partly due to the high levels of progesterone, which has a sedative effect. During early pregnancy, your metabolism speeds up in order to support your developing embryo. Your vital organs have to cope with an enormously increased amount of work. If you feel utterly exhausted and just uncontrollably sleepy, for your baby's and your own sake, just take a nap. Apparently, male babies consume more energy and make pregnant moms more tired than baby girls.

Odd Tastes and Cravings

The saliva often reflects the chemical content of the blood. With the rising hormone levels, the taste within your mouth can change, often being described as metallic.Certain foods may taste different, some even becoming intolerable (eg Fish can taste and smell utterly fishy and disgusting). Feel free to indulge your cravings within reason. Just avoid food that has low nutritional value and of course, inedible substances(!).

Morning Sickness

Though most common in the morning, morning sickness can come at any time of the day especially when you do not eat often enough and your blood sugar is allowed to drop. Some pregnant women may just feel nausea and wretch, without actually vomitting.

Smell

Pregnancy can heighten your sense of smell. You might find that common odours can make you nauseous. You may notice that the way certain things smell (like your perfume) has changed, owing to alterations in your skin's chemistry.

Breast changes

Even at the start of pregnancy, breast changes may become obvious. Your breast can become quite lumpy and sore to the touch. The nipple area may become tender and sensitive, and will also deepen in colour. Veins can become enlarged over the surface of the breast.

Confirming Pregnancy -

If you have noticed one or more of theses symptoms of pregnancy, go ahead and confirm your pregnancy with a simple pregnancy test kit. Your pregnancy can be detected as soon as 2 weeks after conception.

If the result is positive, CONGRATULATIONS! You are about to start the most exciting time of your life...
