Signs Of Pregnancy
This is a very common sign noticed in the early stages of pregnancy. The nipples usually get swollen and you experience a sensation of itching around the nipples. They grow in size and even the coloration changes, resulting in darker nipples than usual. This is due to the hormonal changes in the body, which results in an increased blood supply to the nipples. The increased blood supply makes the breast swollen and the veins beneath the skin are clearly visible. The breasts become tender to touch and larger. However, this sensation is not permanent and subsides as soon as the body gets used to the hormonal changes.
This is another early pregnancy symptom faced by many. In this sign, the mother to be might spot blood in the underpants or while urinating. Blood might also be spotted on the regular date of menstrual cycle. However, the bleeding is not as much as experienced at the time of regular bleeding during the cycle. This is usually caused due the attachment of the embryo to the wall of the uterus. During this time, the mother may experience cramping in the stomach. The pain is experienced due to attachment of the embryo onto the walls. However, this is very normal but care must be taken so that the bleeding is not due to any urinary tract infection. Visiting the doctor is advisable.
This is a very common symptom of early pregnancy. The sickness begins only after six weeks of pregnancy. It is accompanied with feeling queasy, nauseated or even vomiting. Morning sickness unlike its name can prolong through the evening and continue throughout the night. Morning sickness does not necessarily affect pregnant women. It has known to affect everyone irrespective of age or gender.
A missed period is a very common sign for suspecting a pregnancy. A period is usually missed because the uterus maintains the lining of the uterus to support the embryo and later forms the baby sack and helps in nourishment of the baby in the womb.
This is however not the only sign of pregnancy and does need confirmation from the doctors. Pregnancy is a period, which requires special attention towards both the mother to be and the baby. For that, it is very necessary to be aware of the stages of pregnancy and how to go about caring for the baby while it is still in the womb not neglecting the health of the mother.
