Pregnancy period

Symptoms of pregnancy and how to know if it is pregnancy

According to Healthline - There are some early signs and symptoms that may indicate pregnancy even before a missed period. These include:

Implantation bleeding or spotting: Some women may experience light bleeding or spotting when the fertilized egg implants itself into the lining of the uterus. This usually occurs about a week or two after conception.

Nausea and vomiting: Some women experience morning sickness, which is characterized by nausea and vomiting, during the first few weeks of pregnancy.

Breast changes: Pregnancy can cause changes in the breasts, such as tenderness, swelling, and darkening of the nipples.

Fatigue: Many women feel tired and exhausted during the first few weeks of pregnancy.

Cramping and spotting: Some women may experience mild cramping and spotting as the uterus stretches and adjusts to the growing fetus.

Increased urination: Pregnant women may need to urinate more frequently due to the increased pressure on the bladder.

Food cravings and aversions: Some women may develop cravings for certain foods or experience aversions to certain smells or tastes.

To confirm whether or not you are pregnant, you can take a home pregnancy test. These tests detect the presence of the hormone human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) in your urine, which is produced by the placenta after implantation. It is important to follow the instructions on the pregnancy test carefully and to wait until after a missed period for the most accurate results. If you have any concerns or questions, it is recommended that you consult with a healthcare provider.
