Early Pregnancy Symptoms

The realization that you are pregnant is pretty exciting when you are trying to conceive. Those first pregnancy symptoms can bring relief, confirmation and anxiety all at the same time. If this is the first pregnancy, early symptoms are very much a part of the experience because from dpo1 (first day past ovulation) every little twinge, or feeling is suspect to being that much cherished early pregnancy symptom.

If you have been pregnant before the symptoms may or may not be the same as previous pregnancies. I have been pregnant several times and with each pregnancy some early pregnancy symptoms were the same and some were new to that pregnancy. Some of the more common early pregnancy symptoms include bloating, sore nipples, feeling more tired than normal, moodiness, tugs or twinges in the lower abdomen, and mild nausea. Other less common first pregnancy symptoms include cramping, spotting, abnormal mucus that can be watery, creamy or resembles egg white.

Believe it or not some pregnant women report not having any early pregnancy symptoms at all. This can be quite worrisome to a recently pregnant woman especially if this is a first pregnancy. When no early pregnancy symptoms occur a woman may worry that not all is well with the pregnancy. There is an old wives tale going around that early pregnancy symptoms means a healthy pregnancy. I can tell you that this is an absolute as I did not have any symptoms with one of my pregnancies and had a perfectly healthy baby at the end of it. Pregnancy symptoms are usually the result of changing levels of hormones within the woman's body. How sensitive we are to these changes and the levels of hormones will pretty much determine if you feel the symptoms and how intense they become.

Hormones can create episodes of extreme crying seemingly for no reason at all, frequent urination and some women experience what seem to be PMS symptoms.

Unusual early pregnancy symptoms have also been reported by women in the first trimester of pregnancy such as a metallic taste in their mouth, an unusual thirst and some women experience what they believe is a period even though they are indeed pregnant.

Unfortunately having one or more of the above symptoms cannot guarantee that a woman is pregnant because unfortunately some of these very same symptoms can also be what women experience prior to the start of menstruation. Any amount of bleeding while pregnant should be discussed with the individual caring for the pregnancy. Only an early home pregnancy test, a blood HCG lab test or urine test done at the doctor's can confirm the suspicion of pregnancy.
