What Is Early Pregnancy Symptoms

What is early pregnancy symptoms?

Every woman expects that pregnancy brings various body changes and discomforts such as an expanding waistline, weight gain, stretch marks, heart burn and of course other joys of pregnancy too.

The first signs of pregnancy are pretty easy to confuse with an impending period. If you are desperate to get pregnant, it can further raise your hopes and if you are not, it means that you can end up ignoring the signs until they becomes clear.

Missing a period is the clearest sign for woman that she could be pregnant. But there are other causes other than pregnancy for your period that is not arriving on time such as stress, taking certain medicines e.g. the Pill and breastfeeding.

Some women who are pregnant still have a very light period, but if your period is late or much lighter than your usual period, and you have had sex since your last period, then you need to do a pregnancy test.

Some women experience poking kind of feeling in their abdomen with or without slight bleeding. This is called implantation cramping and bleeding. This is due to the egg burrowing into your womb lining.

Some women are so attuned to their body's changes that they suspect so easily that they are pregnant that too very quickly.
