Symptoms of pregnancy that you may not know

Most women already know that the absence of the rule is the symptom of pregnancy. Although, indeed, the lack of bleeding is one of the most obvious and obvious symptoms, it must be borne in mind that a lack is not always a guarantee of pregnancy: the menstrual irregularity may be the result of polycystic ovary syndrome, excessive exercise and medication, among other causes.

However, if you are trying to conceive and you do not usually have irregular periods, the delay could indicate that you are pregnant. Since there is no way to know for sure when you have exactly conceived, pregnancy usually begins on the first day of the last menstrual period.

Lesser known pregnancy symptoms

At the beginning, every woman has pregnancy symptoms different Some show all the typical signs, while others experience few or practically none.


1. Headaches have a hormonal origin. Headaches are among the most common initial symptoms. According to the experts of Ava, "those headaches are usually the result of the increase in hormones that occurs at the beginning of pregnancy."

2. Mood changes. Produced by the increase of pregnancy hormones.

3. The frequent urge to urinate, which can appear even before the growing baby begins to press the bladder.

4. Morning sickness they are another indication of pregnancy, and may appear from the second to the eighth week of pregnancy. Some women suffer during the entire gestation period and, although they are often described as "morning", they can appear at any time of the day.


5. A quarter of pregnant women stain or bleed lightly, but this blood is usually somewhat clearer than the menstrual. Normally, this occurs between six and 12 days after conception, although it can last until the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. Having swollen or painful breasts or nipples can also be a common symptom of pregnancy, and many women experience it within a week or two of conceiving.

6. Tiredness, due to the increase in progesterone (a hormone that helps in pregnancy and in the growth of milk producing glands), is common in pregnancies. In addition, it can appear as soon as a week after conception ", clarify from Ava.

7. A change of palate. Many begin to feel aversion to certain foods, cravings or a combination of the two at some time during pregnancy, although these symptoms can last the entire period.


Many symptoms do not appear until later. Although some women experience the first signs of pregnancy, others do not perceive them until they have passed the two-week waiting period. Many of the signs such as sore breasts, fatigue and slight bleeding are similar to those of menstruation, so the only way to know for sure if you are pregnant is to take a test after two weeks have passed.
