15 signs of being pregnant
- Swollen and tender breasts. Soreness or tingling in breasts is one of the most common signs of being pregnant.
- Darkening areolas.
- Urinary frequency or constipation.
- Smell Sensitivity.
- Elevated basal temperature.
Thereof, is backache sign of early pregnancy?
Early pregnancy symptom: cramp, backache and bloating. Many women experience bloating, mild cramping and slight backache as a pre-menstrual physical symptom, and the same thing happens in early pregnancy as the uterus grows.
Most doctors recommend that you wait until the first day of your missed period before taking a home pregnancy test. A missed period is usually one of the first signs of pregnancy. This is usually around two weeks after conception. However, some tests are more sensitive than others and can be taken earlier.
Your body begins to produce HCG after you conceive. If you get a positive test result on the first day of your missed period, it's probably about 2 weeks since you conceived. More sensitive tests may be able to confirm that you're pregnant from as early as around 8 days after conception.
The Sperm's Long Journey. A man may ejaculate 40 million to 150 million sperm, which start swimming upstream toward the fallopian tubes on their mission to fertilize an egg. Fast-swimming sperm can reach the egg in a half an hour, while others may take days. The sperm can live up to 48-72 hours.
The first signs of pregnancy won't occur right away—in fact, many women miss their period at week 4 before they even feel “different.” But some common early signs of pregnancy in the first weeks after fertilization include breast soreness or tenderness, nausea, fatigue, and frequent urge to pee.
Aside from a pregnancy test, some early symptoms you might noticed by week 2 that indicate you're pregnant include:
- missed period.
- tender and swollen breasts.
- nausea or vomiting.
- increased urination.
Most women are not aware that vaginal discharge (especially if it's thick and milky white) can be among the first signs and symptoms of pregnancy. This is because the changing hormones of pregnancy can stimulate the vagina to increase production of this vaginal secretion.
Implantation is the process by which a fertilized ovum (egg) implants into the uterine wall to obtain oxygen and nutrients from the mother. This usually occurs between 6 and 8 days after conception. Conception itself can occur anywhere between a few hours and 5 days after intercourse.
The earliest pregnancy symptoms in the order of appearance are:
- Implantation bleeding.
- Implantation cramps.
- Nausea and vomiting.
- Tiredness and fatigue.
- Positive blood pregnancy test.
- Positive urine home pregnancy test.
- Elevated basal body temperature chart.
- A missed menstrual period.
If you are pregnant, by then the levels of hormone may be high enough to be picked up by the test. A blood test can also detect hCG. Blood tests are more sensitive than urine tests and may detect pregnancy from about six days to eight days after ovulation.
Changes in Your Body at 1 Week Pregnant. Again, no noticeable physical changes take place during the first week, although many internal changes are happening. Common symptoms include digestive problems like gas, constipation, tender breasts, fatigue, mood swings, morning sickness, and hormonal changes.
If this is your first pregnancy, you may just feel bloated, kind of like after a big meal. But some women have a little baby-belly pooch by the end of the first trimester. After all, your uterus is now the size of a grapefruit. At your next exam, your doctor will be able to feel the top of it.
Other Early Symptoms of Pregnancy
- Frequent urination. For many women, this starts around the sixth or eighth week after conception.
- Constipation. During pregnancy, higher levels of the hormone progesterone can make you constipated.
- Mood swings.
- Headaches and back pain.
- Dizziness and fainting.
Even when it's too early for a pregnancy test to detect a pregnancy, there are other telltale symptoms that you're expecting:
- Implantation bleeding.
- Dizziness and headaches.
- Tender, swollen breasts.
- Constipation or gas.
- Morning sickness.
- Increased urination.
- Unusual tastes, smells, and cravings.
Make sure to write down whenever you experience potential signs of ovulation— typical ovulation symptoms and signs could include cramps, an increase in cervical mucus, breast tenderness, fluid retention, and appetite or mood changes.
Early pregnancy tests can now be taken several days before your period is due – but the earlier you take the test, the less reliable the result. The number of days varies according to the make of pregnancy test. The earliest tests claim to be reliable from up to 5 days before your period is due.
Pregnancy symptoms at 4 weeks. Normally you get your period about 4 weeks from the start of your last period, but if you're pregnant, the clearest sign at this point is a missed period. Many women still feel fine at 4 weeks, but others may notice sore breasts, fatigue, frequent urination, and nausea.
The fertilized egg stays in the fallopian tube for about 3 to 4 days. But within 24 hours of being fertilized, it starts dividing fast into many cells. It keeps dividing as it moves slowly through the fallopian tube to the uterus. Its next job is to attach to the lining of uterus.
Sperm can live inside you for 2, 3 and up to 5 days. You could have sex towards the end of your bleeding and then actually conceive 4 or 5 days later with your early ovulation. The probabilities of getting pregnant while on your period are low, but the possibilities are there.
You can't have your menstrual period while you're pregnant. Some women do have vaginal bleeding during pregnancy. Some even report intermittent bleeding that seems like a regular period to them. But vaginal bleeding during pregnancy is not the same thing as menstruation.
