Main Symptoms of Pregnancy in the First Weeks

Index

Pregnancy symptoms can make a tempting / trainer very anxious and apprehensive, but be aware that not all symptoms that appear to be a pregnancy are exactly that of pregnancy. But when to take a symptom into account in the first few weeks then?

Sometimes the body can play tricks on the woman and apparently give all possible symptoms for a pregnancy. This can be confused with PMS symptoms, hormonal changes and some other things that happen hormonally speaking. The main factor that makes symptoms similar to those of pregnancy is the change in progesterone . It, together with estrogen, is what gives the woman all the symptoms of pregnancy like nausea and all too much. The most frequent symptoms of pregnancy are:

  • Sickness
  • Breast tenderness and swelling
  • Dizziness
  • Aversion to food and smells
  • Refined sense of smell
  • Change in taste (sweet, salty or bitter)
  • Somnolence
  • Cramps
  • Fainting

Much of the above symptoms is the fault of progesterone. Sleep, for example, tenderness in the breasts and changes in taste. But these symptoms do not always appear only in pregnancy, we have to think that progesterone also increases after ovulation and one or more of the symptoms mentioned above may appear, and then simulate a pregnancy due to the corpus luteum that secretes progesterone for the maintenance of possible implantation. But why does the woman have symptoms even without being pregnant? Because the body naturally produces progesterone after ovulation, this is without exception, except in cases where progesterone production is low, but that is a subject for another post.

How to Differentiate Pregnancy Symptoms if They Are the Same?

This is the most difficult part, as we have to wait for the menstrual delay to happen otherwise we have doubts between pregnancy symptoms and PMS . If pregnancy occurs and symptoms are present since the end of the fertile period, it would be necessary even if the woman waits until she finds a significant menstrual delay of 5 to 15 days. I consider a 7-day delay reasonable for a pharmacy or blood test. If you do the pregnancy test or exam before the delay just because of the pregnancy symptoms, you can gain a false negative unnecessarily and there confuse or frustrate the woman. But if anxiety is consuming you and you can’t take it, opt for tests of greater sensitivity. You find pregnancy testswith a sensitivity of 10 mUI from the Famivita brand, which can detect HCG even before the delay here in our online store. 

You see, that sometimes the woman may be pregnant and not have any symptoms or signs that she is pregnant. Both situations have already happened to me so that old story that each pregnancy generates a different behavior of the body is the purest truth. Nausea, back pain, severe cramps, changes in taste and odors that bothered … these were the main ones I had in the first and last pregnancy. In the second, I didn’t feel anything at all in the first weeks! I only suspected pregnancy at 2 months of gestation .

So, we conclude that the symptoms of pregnancy are not always what they seem, the woman may be pregnant, but she may also have symptoms only due to hormonal elevation after ovulation. Not being faithfully attached and only to the symptoms is very important, so anxiety can decrease and the situation becomes lighter for those who are expecting to get pregnant. And for those who are suspicious of pregnancy my tip today: Wait at least 5 days to do a test and confirm your suspicion . False negatives can happen, but if you get tested at the right time, finding the pregnancy is easier.

A tip for our readers and tempters: Patricia Amorim, in partnership with the company Famivita, developed a complete line of products aimed at enhancing fertility, for women and men as well. Among them, fertility vitamins , fertility- friendly lubricating gel , ovulation tests and other news. You can find all these products here in our online store .

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.
