One of the earliest signs of bleeding is implantation. This occurs 6-12 days after conception: as a result of planting the embryo in the uterine wall there are small amount of bleeding from brown to pale yellow color. Depending on the characteristics of the organism, such isolation can be quite intense or not occur at all. Many people mistake them for the beginning of the month, so do not attach much importance. At the same time, such allocation may indicate cervical erosion, which with the onset of pregnancy is only strengthened. When such separation occur after a delay monthly, you need to immediately go to the doctor.

Another sign of pregnancy - a sense of lung ailments. The majority of women in this period of reduced immunity, which causes fatigue, mild fever, headache, or dizziness. Sometimes the symptoms are very similar to the common cold, can even appear sick throat and runny nose.

It is very important not to overdo it with medicines, not to harm the unborn child. If you are planning a pregnancy, it is better to abandon all pharmaceutical products and treated folk remedies, time-tested: honey, herbal teas, decoctions. Of course, when there are signs of distress, it does not mean that a pregnancy, but of oneself still stands.

Physical Changes

Just a week or two after conception in women may increase breast tenderness. In most cases, the expectant mother notices breast enlargement, swelling, dark areas around the nipples. When is the monthly state it is also not uncommon, but differences still felt pretty good.

Often, these symptoms are the most accurate in determining the pregnancy, especially if accompanied by a feeling of heaviness in the pelvic area and a slight tingling sensation in the uterus.

All of these symptoms cause increases blood flow to the organs of the pelvis, for some it even provokes hemorrhoids.

Change the basal temperature is also one of the signs of pregnancy. At this time, the body is released estrogen, which causes a temperature reduction of night and early in the second phase. In medicine, this is known as implantation ceasing. For those who lead chart measuring basal body temperature, see these fluctuations is not difficult. Further, the temperature rises to 37 degrees and stays until you earn the placenta.

The most common early signs of pregnancy are not very visible, so I define it is not that at all. Another thing, if a woman is ready to conceive, fulfills all the requirements and listen to your body. For a pregnant woman her condition becomes known to a maximum of 10 days, and even earlier. At this time, the body begins to rebuild, strenuously produces the hormone progesterone, which causes fatigue, apathy, lethargy and depression.

Often under the influence of progesterone women have increasingly irritable, explain that they can not. But after a couple of weeks, this state is held, unless, of course, pregnancy is proceeding normally.

Toxemia and intestinal problems

After 2 weeks after conception should expect pregnancy symptoms such as restless sleep, excessive salivation, a growing aversion to the smell, nausea. As a rule, morning sickness 90% of women associated with pregnancy, and in most cases they are correct. But this toxicosis may not occur if a woman is healthy, well nourished and balanced, a lot happens in the open air. Quite often it happens that the first pregnancy takes place without toxicity, easily and quickly, and the second followed by a very strong nausea almost half term.

The early signs of pregnancy can be attributed to problems with the intestines. In the first week the possibility of cutting intestinal disorders, flatulence, abdominal distension. Later begin constipation, frequent urination. Nulliparous women perceive such symptoms as simply the result of poor eating habits and start taking the medicine. More experienced immediately realize what had happened, especially if there are other symptoms of pregnancy.

By 4 months is generally bowel condition is stabilized, although bloating and constipation from time to time remind yourself. The frequency of urination is also coming back to normal, to increase after 6 months, when the fetus will grow stronger and the pressure of the uterus on the bladder increases.

Even before the delay in pregnant may increase the appetite, have unusual eating habits or a sudden feeling of hunger at night. All of this is considered to be conclusive signs of pregnancy and extends the majority of mothers after the second trimester. Limit yourself to this period should be only those women who gain weight too quickly, the rest of the night snacking will not bring harm. Of course, I can not eat too much spicy food, with lots of flavors or dyes, heavy on the stomach.

Other manifestations

In this favorable environment, the thrush is developing very actively, bringing pregnant discomfort. Treat thrush it is necessary, and the sooner the better. But the self-diagnosis, and it is impossible to buy medicines, so as not to harm the baby. If you notice the first symptoms of thrush, just go to the reception to the gynecologist - is the best option quickly and safely get rid of the fungus.

After 3 weeks, there is another sign of pregnancy - delay menstruation. This happens in all different: someone periods do not begin, someone go much weaker than usual, the rest may stand only a few drops of blood. Again, the delay itself does not guarantee that you are pregnant: it can happen because of illness, stress, exposure to cold and other factors. But it is already possible to check its status using a pregnancy test - at that time, the results will be reliable.

So, if you suddenly feel unwell, familiar food seemed tasteless, I wanted something unusual and prior month another two weeks, should listen to your body, carefully analyze its condition. The combination of even 2 signs mean a lot, and if they are added other symptoms, it is time to prepare for the replenishment of the family.

Timely treatment specialist will help keep health and the expectant mother and the child, so do not neglect it.

There are cases when at obvious signs of pregnancy, the fetus in the uterus was absent, ie pregnancy is false. Most often it occurs in women who are much hung up on the child's conception. Constant thoughts about pregnancy causes physical sensations in the body, causing nausea, weakness, fever, vomiting, and even an increase in the abdomen. To avoid this, it is necessary to treat everything calmly and without fanaticism.
