Early Pregnancy symptoms: Your body’s signals to tell you if you are pregnant

Pregnancy symptoms are different and can change from woman to woman (not all of them have nausea, for example).

You will have heard of the pregnancy symptoms and, specifically, the first signs of a pregnancy.

You may be asking yourself the question why your body is sending you signals that you don’t know and worry about. Add to this that menstruation does not come and you question yourself.

It is not easy to make a list of pregnancy symptoms because every woman responds in her own way. It is true, however, that there are some more common early pregnancy signs that can be clear indicators.

However, keep in mind that in addition to the pregnancy symptoms. There are pregnancy tests that can be done (and are reliable) already a few days before the presumed arrival of menstruation.

You can buy them at the pharmacy or supermarket, they are sticks on which to pee a little and wait for the result in a few seconds.

Anyway, we talk here about the first pregnancy symptoms those that appear in the first days and first weeks.

3 Pregnancy Symptoms in the first days

Pregnancy symptoms

Among the first signs of a pregnancy we find these three:

Delay of menstruation:

 If you have a regular period, it is the first and most reliable sign of a pregnancy in progress. However, a delay does not necessarily mean that you are pregnant. As it can be caused by other causes, such as stress, irregular cycles, taking medications.

More sensitive breasts:

You start to feel very sensitive nipples and firmer breasts, even sleeping on your stomach bothers you: you may be pregnant because, due to hormones, the mammary glands grow, the breasts become bigger and harder and a little painful.

Sensitivity to Odors:

You smell smells you’ve never smelled or have altered smells. During pregnancy all the senses are refined and you feel like a truffle dog. According to science, this is a natural protective mechanism for mother and child: easily perishable foods such as meat and fish, but also substances that should be avoided (alcohol, coffee, cigarettes) are perceived by expectant mothers as unpleasant.

The first weeks of pregnancy: 5 signs to keep in mind

As the days go by, pregnancy becomes more evident and these are the signals your body sends you.

Darker nipples:

If you are pregnant, after 4 or 5 weeks, again due to pregnancy hormones, the nipples, areola and even the vulva can become darker. Even the small bumps on the areola, the so-called Montgomery tubercles, may appear more prominent and a deeper brown.

Tension in the lower abdomen:

You feel a tension in the lower abdomen that is different from usual and small twinges every now and then or the sensation of small tears. It is the uterus that grows, to host the embryo first and then the fetus. The blood supply increases and new vessels appear and all this can in fact be accompanied by a typical tension in the lower abdomen.

You are more hungry:

The transformation that pregnancy requires requires more nutrients and more energy, which is why you are hungrier. However, remember that even before menstruation, the sense of appetite usually increases.

You feel more tired:

For the same reasons as in point number 6, the first few weeks of pregnancy can cause tiredness, weakness and dizziness. Rest, and follow what your body asks.

You feel nauseous, especially in the morning:

You may be pregnant if you have repeated nausea for several days in a row. The first trimester of pregnancy changes many sensations. Another sensation is the taste of food that you perceive slightly altered. Or, again, a slightly metallic taste in the mouth. The chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) pregnancy hormone is responsible for feeling unwell. Some women are very sensitive to this hormone, others are not, and they don’t even feel nauseous! Blessed!
