Early Signs You May be Pregnant — Paras Bliss

Eager to get the good news? You will need a home Pregnancy test or a blood test to find out. Until you take, one you can look for these early signs of pregnancy. These signs are not foolproof, but can give you a rough idea about the probability of conceiving. The first two weeks of pregnancy can be somewhat confusing. During this period, there are no symptoms of pregnancy. So, if you want to get pregnant and do not experience any of these symptoms, do not despair.

  • For some women, it may take a day or two to learn about their Pregnancy and for some a couple of weeks. The most accurate way to know if you are pregnant is a blood test. Paras Bliss Hospital has an excellent team of pathologists to help you with the right set of tests needed.
  • One of the most common changes that you will start noticing is sore breast. Breast tissues are extremely sensitive hormones. After the egg is fertilized, progestogen and HCG start flooding the body. They increase your blood volume, which makes your breasts swell and heavier than usual.
  • You may feel cramps, the way you feel in your period, but this pregnancy sign is triggered by implantation — when the fertilized egg attacks the uterus wall. At this stage, the uterus stretches (hence causing cramps) prep for the massive explosion.
  • Morning sickness is one of the most common symptoms experienced by 85% of women at this stage. Women also complain of suddenly feeling uneasy from reading in the car or feeling sick during flights.
  • Kidneys start to kick into overdrive during early pregnancy. They flush out more fluid during pregnancy. This results in peeing more often.
  • Your overtired body may demand extra carbs now because they are easily metabolized, which helps keep energy levels up. This results in increased cravings or aversion to certain foods also.
  • Increasing blood volume may trigger frequent but mild headaches in the first few weeks of pregnancy. This sign of pregnancy should let up as your body adjusts to elevated hormone level.
  • As the levels of HCG hormones increase, you may feel a massive amount of fatigue, which makes you prone to moodiness.
  • Your Basal Body Temperature (BBT) increases by half a degree or so. This is usually used to indicate you are ovulating.
  • Nipples darken gradually as the pregnancy hormones also affect the activity of melanocytes or cells in the nipples responsible for their color.
  • Many women mistake some light bleeding for a period but as many as 25% will have some spotting during implantation. If you notice that your period seems much shorter than usual it may be a sign of pregnancy.

Due to increased level of hormones, your body undergoes many changes — physical and mental. You should consult your gynecologist as soon as you spot any of these changes in your body. They will guide you forward with the right steps to be taken.
