Right when you start thinking about having a baby, the cliché symptoms of pregnancy come to mind. “I will know when I am pregnant, the symptoms are obvious. “But it may not be that simple, did you know?
Some women may have the signs of pregnancy quite evident, but others, show none, or just a small indication that there is a new life on the way, while others may have very atypical and even strange symptoms , especially in the beginning of pregnancy . So, let’s discover five strong signs that you may be pregnant even if it doesn’t appear to be symptoms of pregnancy.
If you think that snoring is bad, you will change your mind if you want to get pregnant. The connection of snoring with the initial pregnancy is the swelling of the mucous membranes that all hormonal changes bring.
Just like in the vagina, the nose is full of sensitive tissues and for that reason, it can undergo changes causing atypical snoring or cause you to start snoring. Of course, not all snoring women are pregnant, but yes, snoring can be one of the signs that your body is changing and you will be a mom soon.
2- Taste of Metal in the Mouth
Do you know that taste of an umbrella handle? Yeah, that’s not it. The metallic taste is different, it seems that the woman ate a small piece of steel sponge in the morning.
The metallic taste can accompany the woman throughout the day and neither brushing her teeth nor eating anything will completely get rid of the inconvenient taste. Taste changes, again caused by hormones (progesterone and estrogen), will again be blamed for this strange possible sign of pregnancy.
3- Big Foot
Suddenly your feet don’t fit in your shoes anymore! Yes, this can also be one of the signs of pregnancy. The body reacts in such a way that it makes your feet grow a few centimeters, but already enough for the woman to feel the change.
The shoe that used to fit perfectly, starts to bother to tighten on the tip or heel. However, unlike all other possible pregnancy symptoms, the foot that has grown will not return to its previous size , it will be a consequence that it will have to take for life. All of this happens due to the loosening of the ligaments of the legs to prepare for childbirth.
Many people do not know this, but the eyes can change during pregnancy. It usually happens to women who already need to use some type of corrective lens, be it for myopia, astigmatism, hyperopia and the like.
The eyes may experience some worsening during early pregnancy. Then, women who previously needed to wear glasses to see from a distance, will feel that the degree is no longer the same , whether for better or worse.
Are you used to constipation? But nothing compares to constipation during early pregnancy. This is by far the worst and weirdest sign of pregnancy that the body can go through.
This is because intestinal dryness happens frequently in women who already suffer from this problem, and therefore, go unnoticed very easily. The fact that it is quite common and recurrent, can be confusing and does not awaken in the woman the idea that she is pregnant . So if your constipation is more intense than usual, try taking a pregnancy test as soon as possible.
There Are Other Strange Signs of Pregnancy
It is possible that the woman will often have bleeding gums and noses . This is due to the fact that the mucous membranes are extremely irrigated by the blood that flows with greater speed and abundantly during the period of pregnancy.
Don’t worry, it’s perfectly normal! The vagina can also show an important sign of pregnancy. The swelling, color change and alteration of the usual appearance . However, be careful, this can also be one of the signs that something is wrong. Therefore, the best way to check if it is a symptom of pregnancy, is to observe if there is a bad smell, burning, itching and even secretions different from the usual.
When to take the test?
The test can be done after the menstrual delay, and the different symptoms must be associated with at least one very relevant point: the absence of menstruation for at least 5 days after the scheduled date.
If there are one or more unusual symptoms like those mentioned here, then it is recommended to get tested to make sure there is a baby on the way. Still in doubt? Look for a doctor, he will guide you how to proceed!
