It can occur in two ways: either that the pregnancy is desired and therefore, in the presence of any minimal symptom, it is suspected that the conception has actually occurred, or that the couple has not even considered this possibility, and see with surprise that the rule does not arrive, that the days pass and menstruation is delayed.
"Will I be pregnant?" It is, without a doubt, one of the most common questions that at any time in their lives have been practically all women.
An understandable doubt, which can lead you to even seek Signs and symptoms in your body that can help you confirm suspicions. But, are there early pregnancy symptoms that can be useful in this regard ?.
What are the first symptoms of pregnancy?
Amenorrhea, or absence of rule
Although it is medically known by the name of amenorrhea , it is basically the absence of a rule. Of course, even though it is about plausible symptom that pregnancy has occurred , does not always mean that this has actually occurred, and ultimately there is a pregnancy.
It is possible that certain hormonal problems may influence the absence of a rule, as it can also happen when a woman loses a lot of weight quickly, when certain imbalances occur.
It is also true that there are women in whom the name known as implantation bleeding , which occurs when the egg has reached the uterus and is "grabbing" the wall of the endometrium. In these cases, when there is no - for now - evidence of pregnancy, it is common for women to confuse it with the typical hemorrhage of menstruation.
The key to knowing whether or not you are pregnant is with a pregnancy test or test. You can use the test in common urine or the blood test that you can do in an analytical laboratory. In the first case it is recommended to wait at least 1 to 2 weeks after the lack of menstruation, although today there are tests that are able to confirm the pregnancy even 1 or 2 days before the fault occurred.
Nausea and vomiting
This has been popularly one of the symptoms most related to pregnancy. How many movies have you not seen in which the protagonist felt nauseous and / or vomited, and it was suspected that she was pregnant?
The truth is that it is an early sign of pregnancy, but there are women who do not suffer.
Usually appear from the first days of pregnancy . Dizziness is especially common morning, with or without nausea and vomiting. Its causes? It is suspected that it may be due to the high level of the hormone chorionic gonadotropin, which is believed to affect the vomiting center (found in the brain stem). It is also believed that it may be due to progesterone, which produces a relaxation of the muscles of the digestive tract, which causes a slower digestion.
There are some basic tips that will help you reduce nausea and vomiting during pregnancy:
Try to eat small portions of food, often throughout the day.
Avoid going to bed right after eating, even if you are very tired.
Have snacks by hand, to eat some when you get up in the morning.
Avoid fats and foods with very strong odors.
It is a frequent symptom during the first weeks of pregnancy. It is usual for women to notice how the mouth secretes excess saliva , which can be very annoying.
Some experts believe it may be associated with nausea and vomiting, although other doctors do not think so.
Luckily, it is a symptom that usually disappears as the pregnancy progresses.
Although there is no effective natural remedy, it can help you do relaxation exercises and chew mentholated chewing gum.
When do you begin to feel the early symptoms of pregnancy?
We must bear in mind that each body is different, so there are women who tend to feel the early symptoms of pregnancy before or after the usual. Or it may even happen that they never notice them.
However, if it appears, the most common is that most of the early symptoms begin to feel around the 6th week of pregnancy .
But as indicated above, it is possible that some of these symptoms are 'ahead' and begin to feel around the week 4 or 5 of pregnancy, especially the most common as tenderness and pain in the breast, pain in the lower abdomen and nausea .
