Early Pregnancy Signs:⁠ ⁠ If you're waiting on your period and think there's a chance you could be pregnant, how do you know your suspicions could be true?⁠ How early will you feel the signs? ⁠ ⁠ This depends for each woman. Some women feel symptoms from as early as 4 weeks, some don't notice anything until they're way past their missed period.⁠ ⁠ Here are 3 to look out for:⁠ ⁠ 1) Frequent urination⁠ If you've noticed you have the need to go to the toilet more often, this could be a sign.⁠ Why does this happen, though? This is down to the hormone called hCG which increases the blood flow in your pelvic area.⁠ ⁠ That amounts to some possibly awesome sex, but frequent trips to the ladies room.⁠ ⁠ 2) Fatigue ⁠ ⁠ This is probably the most frequent of symptoms as the first trimester of pregnancy takes it's toll on your body.⁠ Your body is working hard to develop your baby's nervous system and to get all the organs working - like the heart, typically starting to beat at 6 weeks.⁠ ⁠ So if you're feeling more wiped out than usual, this could be why. ⁠ ⁠ (I also have a post all about surviving pregnancy fatigue on the blog)⁠ ⁠ 3) Tender breasts⁠ ⁠ Similar to the time around your period, your breasts will become a little swollen and tender to the touch during pregnancy. ⁠ ⁠ This is due to the role of progesterone, which among other things,inhibits the breasts from lactating until after birth.⁠ ⁠ There are 6 more symptoms listed on the blog post and mamas get real on how they just KNEW when it was their time!⁠ ⁠ Link in bio, under latest posts, category 'pregnancy'.⁠ ⁠ #pregnantlife ⁠ #pregnant #motherhood #pregnancy #pregnancytips #pregnancyandbeyond #firsttrimester #earlypregnancy #momlife #momblogger #parenthoodjourney #bloggermom
