As soon as menstruation is delayed (or not), the first question that crosses the woman’s head is: am I pregnant? The fact is that it is not always just menstrual delay or even symptoms that appear before it happens, it is enough to determine if there is a pregnancy in progress or not. Many women are confused exactly because of these symptoms that are damaged! They insist on showing up and with them the question of whether there is a baby on the way.
However, fortunately there are precious tips to detect pregnancy with small signs that the body gives. Even if the test still fails to make positive, at least the woman’s curiosity can be partially taken away. Shall we go to them?
Tip 1 The Symptoms: Symptoms of pregnancy can be villains or good guys, you decide the role they will play in your attempts or in the suspicion of pregnancy. In addition to the absence of menstruation, they are the main signs that there may be pregnancy, but it is not always so … The symptoms may be of a hormone that rises after ovulation. In fact, the woman’s menstrual cycle is full of these hormones. One of them, progesterone can provide many symptoms similar to pregnancy by the activity of the corpus luteum shortly after ovulation. So, the best thing to do to not get in the way or get frustrated is to wait to delay your period and then try a test. Symptoms can be:
- Sore breasts
- Lack or excess of appetite
- Lack or excess sleep
- Dizziness and fainting
- Pressure fall
Tip 2 Temperature: This tip is valid for those who follow their basal temperature through graphs. When pregnant even initially, the temperature will be above the usual average. Let’s say about 2, 3 points above. It is not a very considerable increase for some women, but for others it is quite reasonable. A woman with a daytime temperature of around 39 degrees is likely to have a rise of up to 37.4! But what really counts is the first temperature of the day, always leave your thermometer ready!
Tip 3 Humor: Although PMS is a villain in a woman’s life and causes changes in mood, changing it even without menstruation can be a sign of pregnancy! It is possible for a woman to pick on a person overnight without warning. The targets can be those you love most as a husband, children, mother, siblings … So if you, in addition to the other symptoms, still include this in your analyzes, it could be a sign of pregnancy.
Tip 4 Bleeding: It is also possible for the woman to escape bleeding through the vagina on the days when menstruation should come either shortly before or after. Nesting can cause noticeable bleeding but no flow at all.
Caution: Bleeding should not look like menstruation. It looks very similar, but the flow is none. It can be a light blood, red, brown, smudge or a pink goo. Be very careful not to confuse the beginning of menstruation with nesting bleeding ok?
Tip 5 The Test: Cliché? It might be! But if you have a positive pregnancy test it is also proof that a baby is coming! But for that you need to have a minimum of HCG in the body. If the line is very clear, almost imperceptible, it is necessary to wait a few more days to repeat the test. Normally HCG (exclusive pregnancy hormone) doubles every 48 hours. Remembering that drugs do not interfere in the result, except those containing HCG such as Ovidrel, Puregon or Choriamon. Urinary infection will also not make the test positive. If you have two lines then you are positive because you have HCG in your body. Quantitative HCG testing above 6mUi may also mean that there is a possible pregnancy on the way! Pay close attention to your exam report. If the value is above 15 then pregnancy is possible and promising.
Some Strong Signs of Pregnancy
Breast changes are super important! It is possible that the woman may have tubers, small white dots on the nipples after the fertile period. If they happen accompanied by a small darkening and stiffness of the breast, it can be a strong sign that there is excess production of hormones, which makes you think of pregnancy. However these symptoms alone do not mean that there is pregnancy at all , you need other symptoms or evidence that can be positive. Abdominal tenderness, such as cramps and stiffening of the lower abdomen, must be taken into account. The most affected part is 2 fingers below the navel. All this by increasing the circulation of blood and hormones in the body.
Author’s note: I remember very well when I suspected the pregnancy a second time. I barely had symptoms, but one detail caught my attention. When I turned on my stomach, I felt the swelling very strong in my lower abdomen. A few days later, a 5-week pregnancy was found. Therefore, symptoms do not always mean you are pregnant, sometimes you may be pregnant and feel nothing !
My name is Dr. Alexis Hart I am 38 years old, I am the mother of 3 beautiful children! Different ages, different phases 16 years, 12 years and 7 years. In love with motherhood since always, I found it difficult to make my dreams come true, and also some more after I was already a mother.
Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
