You've noticed some changes happening to your body, so you have decided to visit the doctor. Now the results are back, and you have learned that you are going to have a baby. Congratulations! All those thoughts and emotions that are going through your head are perfectly natural, and soon you're going to notice more and more pregnancy symptoms as your condition progresses. These are nothing to be afraid of, but to be embraced, and better understood so that you can be more comfortable with your pregnancy.
If you have been trying to get pregnant, or you have a suspicion that you may have conceived, there are some common signs and symptoms that occur to most women early in their pregnancy. These symptoms include emotional signs as well as physical symptoms. If you identify with these signs and feel that you may be pregnant, it is important to confirm your pregnancy as early as possible to begin prenatal care for you and your new baby.
Fatigue, swollen and tender breasts, headaches, flu-like symptoms, and mood swings can begin as early as one to two weeks into your pregnancy. As your pregnancy progresses, your areolas will darken and swell, and some of the early symptoms will subside. Many women report feeling severe fatigue very early in their pregnancy; the fatigue quickly goes away and then they feel quite energetic until late in the pregnancy. Mood swings can be quite severe early in a pregnancy, and may include feelings of euphoria followed by depression or sadness; again, many of these mood swings are similar to emotional changes that women experience during PMS. Pregnancy symptoms such as frequent urination, morning sickness and nausea, and odd food cravings generally begin around 2-3 weeks into the pregnancy; sometimes these symptoms do not occur until 4-6 weeks into the pregnancy.
Some women do not experience a missed period during the first few weeks of pregnancy; a period that occurs during the first weeks of pregnancy may be either normal or abnormal. Abnormal periods that occur during the first few weeks of pregnancy can include a lighter-than-normal period, spotting, or a very short period. Of course, any bleeding that occurs when you may be pregnant needs to be checked by a doctor immediately.
If you are experiencing some of these symptoms, and there is a possibility that you can be pregnant then you should take a pregnancy test as soon as possible. Over-the-counter urine tests and blood tests performed by a physician detect levels of human chorionic gonadotropin, (HCG), in your blood; this hormone is released by the developing placenta and begins to appear in the blood as little as 5 days after conception. Over-the-counter urine tests are up to 97% accurate; these tests are usually not able to detect HCG in your urine until one week after your missed period. Blood tests are up to 99% accurate, and these tests can detect HGC in your blood as soon as 7 days after your ovulation.
You need to confirm your pregnancy as early as possible so that you can begin your prenatal care. Early prenatal care is important to the health of your new baby and you during this time. Once you begin to notice any early pregnancy symptoms, and you believe that you may be pregnant, take a test as soon as you can. If you take an over-the-counter test and it is positive, have the test confirmed by your physician. Remember to stay relaxed during this time, and try to keep your stress levels down.
If this is your first child, you're going to have a lot of questions. There are a lot of resources available in books, pamphlets, and on the Internet, but your family doctor is probably going to be the best source of information to help you better understand what is going to be happening throughout the 40 weeks of your pregnancy. Having regular medical appointments, maintaining a proper diet, and continuing to be active, will help you deal with potential
pregnancy discomforts, and will help you be better prepared when your time gets closer, and pregnancy labor signs become more and more apparent.
This is a wonderful and magical time for you as an expectant mother, and the changes to you and your body should not cause you anguish or mental discomfort. Understanding your condition, and the process of childbirth will make this experience more enjoyable for you and your family, and you will be able to spend less time worrying about your health, and more time focusing on other issues like baby names, maternity leave, and nursery wallpaper patterns.
