Knowing Pregnancy Symptoms

January 8, 2013

Pregnancy symptoms differ from one woman to another. The symptoms also vary from one pregnancy to the next. There are pregnancy symptoms that will come as early as 6 days after conceptions and other signs will come later on. It is very important to note that symptoms that may look similar to those of pregnancy may be caused by other reasons such as infections hence care must be taken to confirm the cause most preferably by taking a pregnancy test. The following are some of the most common symptoms of pregnancy.

Pregnancy throws your body for a loop. As you grow a baby all kinds of symptoms show up. Of course morning sickness, everyone knows about that one. You have to pee – a lot.

Light bleeding:
This is also called spotting. It is caused by implantation of the embryo into the uterine wall. This will normally happen 6 to 12 days after conception. This may also be accompanied by cramping.

Missing the period:
It is the most common sign to look for. When a woman conceives, then she has to miss the next menstrual period. However some women may have some bleeding but this will be light and will take much shorter time than the normal periods.

Swollen breasts:
The breasts may become tender and sore. This may be caused by hormonal increase in the body.

When you are pregnant, you may feel tired more often without having done any task.

Headache and backaches:
When pregnant a woman may experience chronic backaches and mild headache. The headache is caused by a sudden rise in hormones in the body.
