Top 12 Sign of Pregnancy

Here we have given some symptoms of pregnancy, seeing which you can find out whether you are pregnant or not.


Early Pregnancy Symptoms

1. Missed periods

If you are trying to conceive and miss your periods during that time, then you may be pregnant. Even according to the doctor, missing your periods is considered as an early pregnancy symptom.

But sometimes your periods may be missed due to other health problems too, so if you miss periods, do a preliminary pregnancy test or consult your doctor immediately.

2. Nausea and dizziness 

Some women may feel the problem of nausea and dizziness immediately after pregnancy, but it is not necessary that all women have this problem.

Although there is no clear reason for the occurrence of this problem, but according to Dr. Aruna Kalra, this problem may be due to the increase in the decrease of hormones during pregnancy.

3. Light bleeding

When the embryo first implants in the uterus, it obstructs the blood vessels and causes bleeding, known as “implantation bleeding.”

This light bleeding is often mistaken for the beginning of a period, but period blood usually has a slightly different color. This can happen ten to fourteen days after fertilization.

According to the doctor, this can be known as an early sign of pregnancy, however, it does not happen to all women.

4. Feeling tired 

Feeling tired is also very common in early pregnancy symptoms. During early pregnancy, the levels of the hormone progesterone increase, which can make you feel tired and sleepy.

5. Morning sickness

Morning sickness is also considered one of the main pregnancy symptoms which can occur at any time of the day or night, often this symptom starts appearing a month after you are pregnant.

However, in some women it may start even earlier, as the symptoms may vary from woman to woman.

6. Pain in breast and nipples and change in color of nipples

During the early days of pregnancy, you may feel tenderness and sore nipples in your breasts due to hormonal changes. Some women may also experience breast pain along with sensitivity in the nipples.

This discomfort tends to subside after a few weeks as your body adjusts to the hormonal changes over time.

Apart from this, the color of your nipples also starts changing from brown to black.

7. Having mood swings

Mood swings also play an important role in early pregnancy symptoms . Post pregnancy, a woman experiences unexplained laughing, crying and unusually emotional behavior because of the hormones in her body. These symptoms are often quite common in all women during their pregnancy.

8. Headache and lightheadedness

You may experience headaches in the early days of pregnancy which may be due to the increased blood circulation and (of course) rising hormone levels in the body during the early days of pregnancy. You may also experience extreme fatigue along with frequent severe headaches.

9. Going to the toilet frequently

Going to the toilet frequently is also known to be one of the main symptoms of pregnancy. If you conceive after your ovulation process, you may pass urine more often than usual in a day. This is because the amount of blood in your body increases during pregnancy, which makes your kidneys work more. It starts excreting fluid which is what comes out with the help of urine.

10. Change in appetite 

There is a special symptom after pregnancy that almost all women must experience, that is a change in your taste, sometimes there is a lot of desire to eat any food or irritation with favorite food. 

Newly pregnant women often develop food aversions, their favorite pre-pregnancy foods are no longer acceptable during this time.

Apart from this, you may feel like eating certain food again and again, this is known as  food craving in pregnancy .

11. Digestive problems like bloating, constipation complaints 

After pregnancy, your digestive system may get a little weak due to which you may face some digestive problems like flatulence, constipation, vomiting etc. All these problems are also known as early pregnancy symptoms.

During pregnancy , due to the slow digestion process , food stays in the digestive tract longer than usual, which is why many pregnant women experience gas or bloating much earlier in their pregnancy. Apart from this, the complaint of constipation is also quite common.

High levels of progesterone not only cause gas and bloating by slowing down the digestive process, but they also slow down various muscles in the digestive tract, leading to constipation. 

If you are feeling all the above symptoms then you may be pregnant, but before clarifying anything, do a pregnancy test or consult your doctor immediately. We understand that pregnancy is special for any woman so before jumping to any conclusion see your doctor and confirm your pregnancy.
