First Pregnancy

If this is your first pregnancy, you surely must be anxious from head to toe. You are going to embark on a journey full of mysteries, surprises (both pleasant and unpleasant), and revelations too. Therefore, it.s crucial to arm yourself with proper knowledge about the whole thing, including pregnancy symptoms, complications, fetus development, diet, checkups, tips for healthy pregnancy, and almost every other thing about each stage of pregnancy.

The more informed you are, the better your chances of enjoying your pregnancy. Let's start with the symptoms because this is what you will encounter in the beginning and this is what is going to confirm to you that you are pregnant.

Missed Period

This is a definite indicator of first pregnancy. Perhaps this is the only time in a woman's life when she actually waits for her period! And if it doesn't come, it's time to rejoice and confirm with a pregnancy test. However if you having been planning a pregnancy, the major pitfall on relying on this method is you are almost a month past your pregnancy when you come to know about it!

This is because your pregnancy is determined from day one of your last period. There are also chances that you might not remember the exact date of your last menstruation. In this case, the whole idea flops!

It's as if Mother Nature knew you would be lax in remembering dates! Therefore, she has given other pregnancy symptoms that indicate that it's time to break the good news. Let's take a look at what these symptoms, often labeled as "nasty" by women worldwide, are.

Other Pregnancy Symptoms

  • Morning Sickness - Aww! This is the most loathed ever! And don't be fooled by its name. It can occur any time of the day! Eat anything and you will feel like throwing up. So, be prepared!
  • Sore breasts - Your breasts will become tender and enlarged. This is a sign that your body.s preparing to nourish a new life.
  • Extreme fatigue - Don't be surprised if you feel like hitting the bed without indulging in any heavy physical activity. It is Nature.s way to encourage you to get some rest to prepare your body for a busy nine-month schedule.
  • Mood swings - Blame it on changing hormones levels, if you feel like screaming on top of your voice! Actually, this symptom will take a toll more on your hubby than you!
  • Frequent urge to urinate - Don't feel shy of admitting that you visit the bathroom ten times a day! After all, you're going to create a new life. So, people of the world . please understand!
  • Spotting - There might be vaginal discharge with a tinge of blood. Don't panic. It's perfectly normal. However, if it's accompanied with fever or pain, or foul smell, or greenish or yellow discharge, it's time to take medical help.

Other symptoms that may pester you are constipation, diarrhea, headache, and others.

Remember, not all women experience all the symptoms and with the same intensity. So, don.t compare your pregnancy with your friends. Each woman has unique pregnancy. Even a consecutive pregnancy in the same woman is unique!

Best wishes!
