Very Early Signs of Pregnancy:
1. A Cold :
While your body is growing a new baby, your immune system is being compromised. This allows for viruses and bacteria to give you more colds during pregnancy than you normally would.
2. Increase in Cervical Mucus :
During ovulation, your body produces thicker cervical mucus to help transport sperm to the egg. If conception doesn’t result, your cervical mucus thins out. However, if you did conceive, your cervical mucus will continue to produce and thicken.
3. Implantation Bleeding :
If you notice some spotting or feel like you’re having a very light period, you might be experiencing implantation bleeding.
This happens between 7-12 days after conception as the embryo implants into the lining of your uterus. And it’s possible that implantation bleeding shows up with some cramps – making it really difficult to tell it apart from a regular period.
So if you’re not sure, go ahead and take a pregnancy test.
However, bleeding and cramps in early pregnancy can be dangerous, so talk to your doctor if you’re concerned.
4. Heartburn :
Changes to your digestion can be one of the very early signs of being pregnant. And it’s one that lots of moms could easily miss! Heartburn is a big one. Look out for the burning sensation in your chest that seems to get worse when you lean over or lie down.
5. Implantation Cramping :
Here’s where early pregnancy can get confusing. Feeling mild cramps in your lower stomach or back is an early symptom of pregnancy as the egg implants itself on your uterus lining. And yes, it can feel just like those awful cramps you get just before your period.
If you are TCC, try to rest when you feel these and hang tight until you can do a pregnancy test. And if you become concerned about the cramps, please don’t hesitate to see your medical professional.
