Can't wait? Find the early signs of pregnancy


A late period is not the only sign of pregnancy, it differs from woman to woman and from pregnancy to pregnancy. There are many early signs of pregnancy that a woman who is pregnant for the first time may not discover.

Learn about the many signs of pregnancy in this report, which may give you good news even before you take a pregnancy test and wait for those long minutes to pass while waiting for the positive strip:

Common pregnancy symptoms

The only way to make sure that there is a pregnancy through pregnancy test, or by ultrasound, but there are some common early signs, passing them from the site Verywell American.

You may notice it as early as the first week of pregnancy, or as early as a few weeks after your last menstrual period.

Some women experience none of these symptoms, and others have symptoms that are only temporary and confuse them with their menstrual cycle.

The vast majority of women who do not have any of these symptoms still have a completely healthy pregnancy.

If the absence of symptoms worries you, be sure to consult your doctor about your situation and what to expect.

Any question and every question should be brought before your next pregnancy follow-up visit.

Don't worry if you're wondering about every prick, and feel something isn't going well, that's normal.

Your doctor will be able to analyze what is happening, reassure you that everything is in order, and find solutions to anything that seems unfamiliar.

Absent or strange menstruation

Absence of menstruation is one of the most reliable signs of pregnancy. However, absence of menstruation is not always caused by pregnancy.

That's why your doctor usually will ask you about the first day of your last normal menstrual period. This date will also help determine the due date if the pregnancy is of course valid.

Although some women experience the onset of bleeding at the usual time of their period, it is usually drops, lighter or shorter than their usual period.

Little may continue to women in the menstrual cycle , even during pregnancy , but a rare case.

It may be difficult to notice an absence or strange occurrence if you have an irregular period in the first place.

In this case, a pregnancy test, followed by a pelvic exam, will be necessary.

If your doctor excludes pregnancy among the causes of an absence of menstruation, he will take other steps to rule out the other causes.

Increase your core body temperature

Basal body temperature is the temperature of your body when you wake up from sleep, and it is affected by hormones.

A elevated basal body temperature may be the first sign of pregnancy, even before a pregnancy test is positive.

Some women monitor their core temperature for fertility purposes. They are good evidence of a woman's pregnancy if the temperature does not subside until it reaches or below the pre-ovulation temperatures on the chart.

Nausea in the morning

Almost half of women experience morning sickness, and it can vary greatly from one woman to another.

Some women feel nauseous only in the evening, some throughout the day, and others feel sick and uncomfortable in a very noticeable pattern. Nausea may be accompanied by vomiting.

Some women experience a severe form of morning sickness called gestational vomiting.

This may lead to dehydration and other problems. Your doctor can help you find appropriate solutions.

Breast pain

The emergence of breast pain is usually one of the first physical signs of pregnancy, and it usually goes away in the second trimester. Like its predecessor, it is caused by hormones.

The level of estrogen and progesterone rises, preparing the breasts for breastfeeding, which causes pain with pressure.

frequent urination

If you go to the bathroom more than usual, this may be a sign that you are pregnant .

Frequent urination is one of the relatively early signs in the first three months, and it increases again in the last three months due to an increase in the size of the uterus.

There is nothing to do about it except to know the exact location of the toilets. You will also need to drink water a lot.


Inability to wake up for a long time or the constant need to sleep is also a symptom of pregnancy.

Fatigue comes very early for some women, because their bodies undergo many changes in preparation for carrying a child.

In addition to the increase in progesterone that suppresses the central nervous system, which leads to feelings of sleepiness.

If you are really feeling sleepy, learn how to get the most out of napping so you can get through the day.

Feeling dizzy

An increased blood supply and dilated blood vessels may cause dizziness in pregnant women.

You may feel dizzy at times, but this usually only happens for the first three months. If this continues to happen for longer than this during pregnancy, it's something you definitely need to talk to your doctor about.


Cramps may be something related to the start of your period as well as an early symptom of pregnancy.

Women go through some early contractions of the uterus when it starts to stretch and changes take place.

Anything severe you should tell the doctor immediately. The same applies if the cramps are accompanied by bleeding.


Acne and other skin changes may also be a sign of pregnancy.

But you have to be careful in choosing the medications that you use to treat it.

Some medicines, such as Accutane, and medicines rich in vitamin A can cause birth defects.

It is best to talk to your doctor about how to deal with poor skin during pregnancy.


Headache increases during pregnancy due to hormonal changes.

This may be a symptom of pregnancy, but it is not necessarily a guide. There are a lot of things that can trigger a headache such as tension.

This symptom may occur at any time during pregnancy, but it usually increases in the first trimester.

If you cannot stand the pain, talk to your doctor about safe treatments for your child (this includes over-the-counter medications).

Vaginal secretions

Vaginal discharge that is not accompanied by a burning or itching sensation, may be a sign of pregnancy, and it may occur at first.

The cervix builds a mucous plug to prevent the neck from opening and help protect your baby from infection. During this period, you may notice a slight increase in vaginal secretions.

The vaginal discharge should not smell or be accompanied by a burning or itching sensation. Because these are symptoms of an infection that require medical treatment.


Cravings for weird things during pregnancy is something you often hear about.

In fact, you may have a strong craving or aversion to certain foods, especially foods with strong or unhealthy odors, at the beginning of pregnancy and throughout pregnancy as well.

Flatulence and increase in size

Pregnancy does not begin to appear in a woman at the beginning of her pregnancy, but some women complain of flatulence as a symptom of pregnancy. This is usually caused by the swelling facing the child.

In general, the weight does not increase much in the first three months, as it increases from half a kilogram to a kilogram. In fact, your weight may decrease due to the mixture between feeling fatigued, averse to food, and following a healthy diet in light of the changing lifestyles during this period.

Mood swings

To blame for emotions and mood swings are hormones as well. If you burst into tears or experience intense emotions, do not be surprised or fed up.


Progesterone affects many processes in the body, such as the digestion of food. Increased levels of this hormone cause slow digestion, and thus constipation.

If you experience this symptom after making sure you are pregnant, exercising and eating plenty of fiber may help.

Also, when you start taking pregnancy vitamins, the iron in them increases constipation. It is necessary to try more than one type to find out which one suits you best.

Pregnancy versus the menstrual cycle

Many women confuse the symptoms of pregnancy, and symptoms of pre - menstrual cycle .

This is so common that you don't even notice the differences because they are so slight.

Do you feel bloated? It's normal for some women to feel this before their period. This applies to back pain and cramps as well.

The only way to confirm your pregnancy is to have a pregnancy test or to see your doctor.

If you are pregnant, remember that these symptoms are normal. It may be a real problem only when one of these symptoms is severe and interferes with your daily life and health, or if you have pregnancy symptoms that completely disappear overnight.

When is a pregnancy test done?

If you suspect pregnancy, the test can be purchased right away.

This urine test measures the level of hCG , a hormone released during pregnancy.

The amount of hormone that the test can detect varies a lot. Every woman also produces a little more or less of this hormone, so these tests are not completely accurate.

The best tests available on the market can measure 25 to 50 mgI / ml of chorionic gonadotropin.

This is the amount in urine between the fourth and fifth week of pregnancy. The levels of the hormone in urine and blood are naturally different.

The first urination in the morning always contains the highest concentration of the hormone. But not all tests require the first urination in the morning.

You can improve your chances of having enough of the hormone in your urine by waiting four hours after the last time you urinated for the test. This allows the hormone to build up.

It is possible that a negative result may turn out to be wrong because the test is done too early.

But a false positive result may indicate a very early miscarriage.

Blood tests are more accurate and can be done 7 to 10 days after ovulation.

It can also be used to check on the health of pregnancy at different times. You will need to visit your doctor for a test.

 When should you call the doctor or midwife?

If you have any questions, it is important to contact the doctor or midwife. Even if you don't have an appointment, they can reassure you, and make sure everything is going well.

They will understand that you have many questions and want to give you answers, but you need to call.

Many doctors have a professional to answer questions throughout the day.

Not surprisingly, the answers lead to more questions. It's natural to ask clarifying questions, so don't feel like you're consuming a lot of the doctor's time. They are here to help.
