In the mean time, we’ve complied a list of early signs of pregnancy that you may be experiencing.
The first trimester of pregnancy comes with fatigue that will make you wonder why they stopped nap times in kindergarten. Your body is releasing hormones that signal your placenta to grow and nourish your developing baby. It is also working hard to create more blood to carry nutrients to your baby.
The sudden rise in hormones and blood flow can cause headaches for some women.
Your uterus is growing and putting pressure on your bladder. Because of this, one of the first symptoms that many women experience is feeling like they have to go to the bathroom more often.
Those same hormones that are surging through you to support a healthy pregnancy are likely the culprit for mood swings during pregnancy. Although mood swings are normal, if you find that you are struggling with depression or extended periods of sadness, please contact your healthcare provider.
Some of the other symptoms that you might experience are morning sickness, swollen or tender breast, darkening of the areola, backaches, etc. But, like all of the symptoms above, these can have causes other than pregnancy, such as impending menstruation, tension or stress, hormone imbalance, lack of sleep, improper nutrition…etc. Because pregnancy symptoms vary from woman to woman and pregnancy to pregnancy, the only way to determine for sure is through a pregnancy test.
