Becoming a mother is the most precious moment for a woman, as pregnancy brings out the feeling of motherhood in her specially when she is becoming pregnant for the first time. Not only that, pregnancy brings members of a family closer to each other.
But there is other side to it. Pregnancy brings immense pain, mood swings, and hormonal transformation, which makes you feel miserable. And the worst of these is anticipation.
The status of pregnancy is quite uncertain, and it takes days - if not weeks, to be sure about it. Are you tired of waiting for a pregnancy test to announce the arrival of your bundle of joy? Don't worry.
There are plenty of signs that can confirm your pregnancy even before you take a pregnancy test or miss your periods.
Check 'em out.
Your body will have fluctuating levels of estrogen and progesterone hormones. Progesterone level will increase, which will reduce menstrual bleeding. If you happen to notice this symptom, it means that your embryo has come into existence.
Several women misinterpret it as a sign of food poisoning and indigestion. In fact, some might even think that it is caused due to the morning sickness. But there is a possibility that you're pregnant and your hormone levels are slowing down your metabolism. With pregnancy comes slower digestion.
Your vagina might swell up and there might be a milky white discharge. Due to increased progesterone levels, your body produces cervical mucus, resulting in a sensitive vagina.
Your breasts might grow because of the hormone levels and will become softer. If your breasts feel tender with a slight touch, it means tenderness has increased.
Cramps in pelvic areas are not the same as the cramps during periods. This may last for a couple of days. This is because the fertilized egg gets attached to uterus lining.
The body supports more blood in order to support you and the baby and this forces the kidneys to filter more.
Due to fluctuating hormones, you feel tired and fatigued easily. The body spends energy throughout day and night to keep the baby secure. It's only natural that the tiredness will follow.
Some women suffer from constipation during pregnancy. The decelerated metabolism also leads to irregular bowel movements.
You will have cravings to eat sweet and sour foods during pregnancy. Your cravings for treats and sweets will increase significantly. But try to keep your diet healthy.
