Signs of pregnancy
When planning a child and making maximum efforts for his conception, women want to quickly learn about the occurrence of pregnancy, not waiting for the delay of menstruation or the manifestation of obvious signs. To do this, you need to know what changes occur in the body in the first hours, days, weeks after fertilization of the egg. Obstetricians and gynecologists assert that in the early stages of pregnancy it is extremely difficult to determine, but women on an intuitive level feel the birth of a new life, looking for the first signs and symptoms.
The first signs of pregnancy at 1 month
Women planning a child are interested in a lot of questions, and the main ones are: how much does the pregnancy after conception manifest, can you define it yourself before the delay, what are the popular signs and medical symptoms in the early terms in the first trimester? The classic symptoms of the birth of a new life in the first month include:
- increased levels of hCG in the blood at 1-2 weeks, and 3-4 and in the urine;
- increase in basal temperature (37 degrees);
- the appearance of the first ailments provoked by the onset of hormonal changes.
In the first weeks, virtually no changes appear, there are no obvious signs or symptoms of pregnancy. On the 27th day of the cycle, the woman marks the appearance of the first new sensations, which may indicate conception. These include morning sickness, frequent urination, changes in basal temperature, sometimes pulling the stomach and there is a slight dizziness with a sharp rise.
In the early days
In order to know when the first signs of successful conception appear, women must understand that time is considered differently: from the first day of the last menstrual period or from the date of ovulation and the exact time of fertilization (if known for sure). Neither the doctor nor the woman herself at such early stages will experience pregnancy. In rare cases, on the 3rd day after conception, a weak manifestation of toxemia begins (as a rule, this happens during a multiple or second pregnancy with HB, breastfeeding), but expectant mothers confuse it with classical food poisoning.
Often at 1 week there is a manifestation of unpleasant symptoms that pregnant women rarely compare with the process of the birth of a child. These include: heartburn, diarrhea, bloating, upset, constipation, stomach pain, lower back and lower abdomen. There is still general weakness, drowsiness and fatigue. These are indirect symptoms, the manifestation of which is observed extremely rarely, as a rule, the onset of pregnancy proceeds without signs, and even an early test can show a negative result.
In the second week of pregnancy, the fetus is attached to the walls of the uterus and the active formation of the child begins. In women with increased sensitivity, the first symptoms may appear, for example, a change in eating habits, increased appetite or a complete aversion to food; discomfort, bouts of nausea can cause previously favorite smells. The onset of hormonal adjustment also significantly affects the psycho-emotional state of a woman, tearfulness, irritability, nervousness, irascibility (as in premenstrual syndrome) is manifested.
At week 2, vaginal discharge may appear, with normal microflora and a woman’s health, they are milky. If they have a brown tint, you should consult a doctor, because this may be evidence of inflammatory processes in the body. White discharge may indicate thrush, which should definitely be treated so as not to infect the child. In addition, there is a runny nose, nasal congestion, or other signs of a cold, which actually indicate a different physiological process in a woman’s body.
Accurately confirm the presence of pregnancy at this time will be able to conduct an ultrasound procedure with an intrauterine probe. With the help of this study, it is possible to determine the location of the fetus (this will help exclude an ectopic pregnancy), listen to the heartbeat. Confirmation of conception will be significantly increased levels of hCG in the blood and urine.
The third week is characterized by the appearance of the first tangible signs of pregnancy: the mammary glands swell, toxicosis and a negative reaction to certain foods or flavors are increasingly manifested, there is a slight tingling in the lower back, pulling pain in the lower abdomen. On the 20th day of the cycle, instead of irritability and excessive excitability comes peace, peace, which is necessary for carrying a healthy child.
Symptoms of pregnancy at week 4
The obvious signs of favorable fertilization of the egg include delayed menstruation, the cherished two strips on the test. There is also an increase in the level of hCG, which can be determined by a blood test. All these signs clearly manifest by the 4th week, but at the same time this period is very dangerous, since it coincides with the time of the onset of menstruation and the adjusted cycle can be broken. Hormonal reorganizations can provoke an increased uterus tone, there may be a pregnancy with menstrual (scanty bleeding).
Signs of pregnancy at 2 months
With the onset of the second month of pregnancy, a woman has no doubts about her condition, she happily and with some anxiety tries to get over her thoughts and mentally tune in to bear and give birth to a healthy baby. During this period, there are extremely important physiological processes in the formation of the child, so with special attention should be taken to their health, and any signs of anxiety should immediately contact a gynecologist.
At week 5, the woman feels the following symptoms of pregnancy:
- On the part of the psychoemotional state, there are jumps and drastic mood swings, fickleness in desires and behavior. Often there are tantrums, bouts of tearfulness, apathy, manifestations of the blues, laziness.
- Increased appetite, changing taste preferences, which sometimes drastically differ from the usual.
- Sometimes nausea and vomiting occur, which can be triggered by a variety of smells.
At week 6, there is an increase in breast size, weighting and hardening of the nipples. During this period, tormented by fatigue, drowsiness and weakness, frequent urination, may cause meteorism, colic in the intestine. Often there is a slight weight loss, which is associated with toxicosis and morning vomiting. By the end of the second month, the ailments disappear, the body adapts to the new hormonal atmosphere, and the woman can enjoy her new condition. Gestosis is extremely rare.
Signs of missed abortion
Sometimes there is an unpleasant phenomenon – missed abortion, which is characterized by the arrest of fetal development and is observed in the early stages, less common in the second trimester. Initially, a non-developing embryo does not manifest itself; all signs of normal development are present. A fetus can be frozen for several reasons:
- as a result of exposure to infection or virus (this can also cause miscarriage);
- in the case of bad habits (smoking, alcohol abuse before or after conception);
- due to the negative impact of the environment (environmentally polluted area of residence, employment in industrial production with toxic substances).
How to find out and on what day it is possible to detect the first signs of a breakdown:
- At first, a frozen pregnancy does not manifest itself, because a woman does not realize her condition. In the later stages, the first symptom of fading may be a prolonged absence of movements of the child.
- A few days later, the following symptoms appear: dragging or cutting pains in the lower abdomen, the appearance of bleeding, the disappearance of all signs of pregnancy (toxicosis, increased or decreased appetite, decreased breast sensitivity).
- In order to diagnose a missed abortion, you need to consult a doctor and pass the analysis of hCG (it will be below the proper norm), make an ultrasound scan, where you can make sure that there are no signs of fetal life.
Symptoms of ectopic pregnancy
Many people are concerned about the questions, what is an ectopic pregnancy, what are its first signs and how to determine the condition on their own in order to go to a medical institution in time? In order for fetal development to occur according to physiological norms, the embryo must attach to the wall of the uterus. Sometimes it does not reach its destination and is fixed in the fallopian tubes, such a phenomenon and received the name of ectopic pregnancy.
Depending on the location of the embryo, the first symptoms may appear on the 20th day of the cycle (if the fetus is in the narrowest part of the fallopian tube) or after 8 weeks. Determining ectopic pregnancy is easy with ultrasound. In such conditions, the fetus cannot develop normally; therefore, surgical intervention to remove the embryo is indicated. How to determine ectopic pregnancy symptoms:
- There is a delay of menstruation, but when examined by a gynecologist, the ovum in the uterus was not detected.
- The woman has discharge from the vagina scarlet, red or brown, tormented by sharp pains in the lower abdomen.
- Often there are bouts of dizziness, fainting.
- The level of hCG is much lower than that which should be at this time in the normal course of pregnancy.
Video Council: How to determine pregnancy before a delay
The natural desire of a woman is to learn in the early stages (before menstruation) about successful fertilization of the egg or implantation (IVF). The first few days, the birth of a new life does not appear on the body of a pregnant woman, her state of health. It is possible to determine conception at least ten days after intercourse, using a special test before a delay or having a blood test to determine the level of chorionic gonadotropin. In order to find out in detail what the early signs of birth can be and how the second pregnancy occurs, watch the video:
It would be great if, the day after the delay, the woman already knew about the onset of pregnancy.
But this happens very rarely, and the first symptoms of the changed hormonal background of the patient appear differently.
Since every woman is a unique organism, pregnancy can also manifest itself in different ways. Perhaps the complete absence of signs of pregnancy up to 1-2 months. Therefore, at the first suspicion should consult a gynecologist.
Fertilization of the egg occurs within 1 day before and day after ovulation. The first signs of pregnancy in the early stages of a woman can feel only after 7-10 days from the onset of ovulation. HCG or chorionic gonadotropin is a protein that appears in the urine and blood of a woman only after the embryo attaches to the uterus.
Before the week to detect any manifestations of pregnancy is impossible. It is best to do a pregnancy test on the first day of the expected day of the beginning of menstruation. However, there are many other reasons due to which menstruation has not come. Possible hormonal collection, stressful situation, active sports, taking antibiotics, contraceptives and other medications or climate change.
For each woman, the duration of the menstrual cycle is individual, usually it ranges from 28 to 36 days. By marking the first day of your period on the calendar, you can track the delay. However, sometimes patients have violations of the menstrual cycle with a completely healthy body. This woman will be difficult to identify the first signs of pregnancy before the delay.
Increase in basal temperature
Many women in their lives faced with the need to measure the basal temperature. It provides an opportunity to determine the time of ovulation. That is, the days when there is an increased risk of getting pregnant. High basal temperature remains throughout the luteal phase, that is, the time until ovulation.
An increase in basal temperature during the delay of menstruation can be considered the first sign of pregnancy in the early stages. Such temperature is measured by means of an ordinary thermometer; they measure temperature in the rectum. It is important to measure BT as soon as you wake up and are still in bed.
If you see a temperature of more than 37 degrees Celsius on the thermometer, then you can safely suspect pregnancy. If conception did not occur, basal temperature drops, menstruation occurs at the appropriate time.
Women lack of menstruation in the prescribed time is perceived as the first sign of early pregnancy. However, the delay is not always associated with this.
Any illness or stress can change the hormones. It even happens that in the early stages the girl marks her period. This bleeding, which occurs in the first term of pregnancy, often differs from the standard monthly in its shade and the amount of discharge.
The first indicators – this is when the monthly decreased too much, and the menstruation is over quickly. If there was unprotected sexual contact, most likely with 50% accuracy can be called a menstruation the beginning of pregnancy. Again, if other hormonal changes have occurred in a woman’s body, such scanty periods can be an understandable symptom.
Nausea and vomiting
Most women see nausea in the mornings and feeling unwell as the first sign of a new condition. But such symptoms also occur in case of poisoning, diseases of the gastrointestinal tract and liver. During pregnancy, nausea appears mainly in the morning, although manifestations are possible during the day due to a sharp decrease in blood sugar levels.
Early toxicity due to the fact that the body wants to get rid of harmful substances. In the second trimester, toxemia worries because of the need of the female body to get rid of the “foreign body.” Some patients have toxicity worried about the whole pregnancy. This is the so-called psychological toxicosis.
Note that some patients who strongly want to get pregnant, as well as those who are pathologically afraid of the new condition, noted nausea in the morning. But in reality, a new life has not yet arisen.
Changes in taste, taste change
You may notice an increase in hormone levels by metallic taste in your mouth. You may change the usual taste of food. You will pull on unusual products.
However, this symptom is more often manifested in later periods.
Soreness and breast augmentation
During the beginning of the birth of a new life, the breasts prepare for lactation. Breast coarsens, a woman feels painful. Often darker nipples, they become more sensitive. Sometimes veins become more visible, areola increases around the chest. Some pregnant women have an increase in lumps on the areola.
A clear sign is the release of colostrum or yellowish nipple discharge. Nevertheless, the symptoms are purely individual, and the pregnant patient probably does not notice any of them!
Frequent urge to urinate
A week after implantation, some people notice more frequent visits to the toilet for a small one. This is due to the release of the hormone hCG. It is he who provokes an increase in blood supply in the pelvic organs. As a result, there is overcrowding in the bladder, even with a slight accumulation of urine, most often the woman is concerned about this problem at night.
However, frequent urination is in many cases associated with cystitis or urethritis. The main difference is that with such diseases there is discomfort, soreness and pain during urination.
After about 6–12 days from the onset of fertilization, a bleeding of light color appears. They do not look like ordinary menstruation by its color. At this stage, the embryo lands on the uterine wall. Some patients do not notice any discharge, this is also considered normal.
Small vaginal discharge also occurs when the fertilized egg enters the uterine wall. There are also yellow and pink creamy discharge. Allocation of such shades occur during erosion of the cervix, this disease increases with the onset of pregnancy.
Tiredness and sleepiness
Due to changes in the body, the metabolism becomes more accelerated in order to support the body of the expectant mother.
Sometimes, it seems that you always want to sleep or just relax. Especially prone to sleep in the daytime. It works progesterone, having a sedative effect.
Increased natural vaginal discharge
Some pregnant women note an increase in the volume of cervical mucus. This is due to the same hormone progesterone.
This indicator is not considered explicit.
Cold symptoms, feeling of indisposition
With a normal pregnancy, immunity decreases. Nature came up with this so that the body does not reject the fetus as an alien body. Because of such hormonal fluctuations appear sneezing, nasal congestion, sore throat.
Sometimes body temperature rises. In this case, it is recommended not to use potent drugs. Give preference to traditional medicine, so as not to harm the unborn baby.
From the very beginning of the onset of a new state for the woman’s body, emotional outbursts arise. First, the mood is joyful, then it changes, and the woman begins to cry and get upset over trifles.
Often there is irritability and demands on others. Because of this, relations with loved ones deteriorate.
Lower back pain and lower abdomen
In the early period, some patients feel pain in the lower abdomen and in the lumbar region. This symptom can be provoked by cystitis, strong physical exertion or pyelonephritis as well.
Such a symptom can also be caused by a threatened miscarriage. Especially when a spasm of the lower abdomen is accompanied by bleeding, it is imperative to consult a doctor!
In addition, the following symptoms are possible.
- 1) Diarrhea and constipation – with an increase in hormones, the intestines begin to relax, work less effectively. The body, therefore, tries to make room for the child. This provokes flatulence, constipation, and sometimes diarrhea. If you are expecting a baby, use special means of traditional medicine, suitable for pregnancy. Some observe the disease as hemorrhoids. More often, he is worried about the second and third trimester. But the patients who have already given birth have noted a similar nuisance not the first weeks of pregnancy.
- 2) Insomnia and restless sleep – some women have trouble sleeping. Sleep very early. But even after a full night’s rest, fatigue and fatigue may remain.
- 3) Problems with smells – in such an unusual state, sometimes smells become completely unbearable. Even such a pleasant earlier process as cooking can cause disgust.
- 4) The appearance of acne – you can mark the appearance of a rash on your face that did not bother you before. This process is also associated with the changed hormonal structure of the body.
- 5) Migraine and headache – due to a sharp increase in your body’s hormones, headaches and migraines are possible. This is not a clear sign of pregnancy. Often, by the end of the first trimester, the pain is reduced.
- 6) Traction to new products, increased appetite, increased salivation – often women in new condition feel the need to try certain products. These are not always pickles, but in some cases they are characteristic taste preferences. You may want tomato juice, honey, watermelon or chalk, all very individual. The body tries to make up for the lack of nutrients and vitamins, prepares for carrying a baby.
- 7) Minor swelling of the hands – fluid and salt linger due to the work of progesterone. This provokes some swelling of the hands, while compressing the hand into a fist, it can be noted that the fingers seemed to have become thicker.
- Tingling in the uterus – sometimes pregnant women feel tingling in the uterus during the first two weeks from the onset of pregnancy.
Possible signs of pregnancy
A woman may not notice a single symptom in herself, or she may suffer an entire pregnancy with toxicosis, insomnia, frequent urination and constipation.
However, the most likely signs are: breast augmentation, delay, nausea, dizziness in the morning. On examination, the gynecologist notes an increase in the uterus with a softening of its isthmus. Cyanosis of the cervix and vaginal walls can also be determined by a doctor.
In order to be 100% sure of the onset of this long-awaited period, a blood and urine test should be performed. A pregnancy test, starting from the first day of the expected menstruation, is able to show a positive result.
Tests can also give a false negative or a false positive result. If there is kidney disease, the test is expired, or no morning or stale urine was used, it will not give the correct result. Also, a false negative test can be in the case of drinking a significant amount of liquid before the test.
If you have noticed any signs of the birth of a new life in yourself, take the test. The procedure should be carried out in the morning with fresh urine. It is better to wait a few days after the delay, then the result will be more revealing.
Already from the first or second week of the onset of pregnancy, hCG is determined in the blood and urine. Chorionic gonadotropin in the blood is more reliable in the early period. Already on a three-week gestation period, an ultrasound scan allows an in-fetus to be detected in the uterus.
Pregnancy without symptoms: description, features and recommendations of specialists
Many families are planning to give life to a child and are looking forward to the moment when you can find out whether the attempt was successful or not.
Women study all kinds of literature and try to find at least something about pregnancy and its signs. They listen to their feelings with trepidation. And can there be a pregnancy without signs? Consider more.
What are pregnancy symptoms?
Symptoms or signs of pregnancy are physiological changes that women notice in themselves when they are in an interesting position. Although they can not be called symptoms. This concept refers to disease, and not the normal healthy state of women. In this article we will use the term “signs of pregnancy” that occur in women in the early stages.
Knowing the main symptoms, a woman can easily assume she is pregnant or not. It is possible to confirm or disprove guesses with the help of tests and analyzes.
Reliable signs of pregnancy
According to statistics, 7 girls out of 100 note that their pregnancy was without signs. Although this statement can not be considered reliable, because some symptoms may be confused with other processes occurring in the body.
Some women find out about their pregnancy when they are three months old. And there are several reasons why future mothers claimed that the pregnancy proceeded without first signs:
- Menstruation can be observed in the first two months of pregnancy, after the egg has fertilized. If you are worried about the condition of the baby in the womb, then you need to go to an appointment with a gynecologist.
- Changes in taste sensations a woman can take for the whims or strangeness of the body.
- Frequent changes in mood girls blamed on fatigue or hormonal surges.
- Nausea in the morning is a negative reaction of the body to certain foods eaten last night, but not toxicosis, the girls are sure.
- From the above, it becomes clear that pregnancy without signs is a rare phenomenon. Maybe the symptoms are mild, but they are still there. And you should listen to the body.
And if there is any pregnancy without signs in the early stages? Of course, the complete absence of symptoms is unlikely, especially in the first three months.
Asymptomatic pregnancy is a reality
A natural sign of pregnancy is a growing belly. It is by the presence of this change that pregnancy can be determined. On the other hand, not all future mothers have a marked increase in volumes. As mentioned above, in the first trimester monthly may be present. Toxicosis, breast augmentation or swelling, weakness and drowsiness can not be felt at all.
Approximately 10 women in 100 out of 100 will say with certainty that there can be no signs of pregnancy. The exact causes of this phenomenon are not identified. Most often, gynecologists are faced with cases of late detection of pregnancy, when a woman comes to the reception and complains of an enlarged abdomen and incomprehensible sensations.
Sometimes expectant mothers complain of minor ailments, for example, morning sickness, whitish discharge and delay. But these signs are not accepted for pregnancy, but for the failure of the body.
Doctors advise to undergo a timely examination, to be tested in order to monitor their own health. Periodic inspection will help prevent the development of various diseases and determine pregnancy in time. After all, women are often interested in the question, pregnancy without signs – is it possible? This can happen, but you don’t need to worry about this, each organism is individual and can specifically respond to conception.
No early signs
Some women may not notice the changes at all – in this case, the pregnancy proceeds without signs. This applies to girls who normally had problems with the menstrual cycle, so it is sometimes difficult for them to realize that their body has become the place of development of the fetus. The situation is clarified at a later date when examined by a gynecologist.
On the 8-10th day after unprotected sexual intercourse in the body, the process of fertilization takes place, after which the embryo is attached to the uterus. During this period, women may appear discharge, similar to the monthly, so many mistakenly believe that the conception did not exactly happen.
After the gynecologist still detects pregnancy, the woman begins to worry about the absence of any symptoms. But it normal. Yes, many girls initially feel sick, some eat chalk, other cookies with ketchup, but this does not mean that all pregnant women should have similar signs. There are no definitions of right and wrong pregnancy. Each girl will have this period individually.
Are menstruations dangerous?
If the pregnancy is established, and the menstruation continues, then this is a cause for concern for the doctors and the future mom. Such cases are extremely rare. Early periods indicate a process of implantation or detachment of the ovum. In such cases, the woman appears rather thin spotting with blood.
Often there is no sign of early pregnancy. For example, this happens when the fertilized egg does not have time to implant before the onset of menstruation. There may be a slight delay – from 5 to 15 days. A delay without signs of pregnancy cannot be considered as confirming or denying the fact of fertilization.
Denial or confirmation?
Accurately determine the pregnancy help ultrasound and certain tests. But not every woman is ready to pass paid tests, especially if everything is in order with health.
In Brazil, there was a very interesting case. 27-year-old Fernanda Claudia gave birth to a daughter while swimming. The girl was born healthy, with a weight of about 3 kilograms. The woman after the sudden home delivery gave herself to the medical center and told her unusual story to the doctors. It turns out that she did not suspect her pregnancy until the moment when she began to give birth. This case shocked the public and doctors.
How to determine pregnancy? Expert advice
It is important to remember that early pregnancy can only be determined by ultrasound and HCG analysis. Also, gynecologists recommend to listen to the following tips:
- If there is a sudden pain in the lower abdomen, then you need to see a specialist, especially if you suspect that you are pregnant. Pain can be evidence of threatened abortion, inflammation and uterine contraction. No need to self-medicate, because you do not know the exact causes of the appearance of pain.
- If the pregnancy is confirmed, then it is desirable to review all of their life priorities and preferences. It is necessary to correct the food, because the food should be useful. It is important and a complete rejection of bad habits, which include smoking and alcohol.
- If you are worried about the fact that your pregnancy is without signs, then it is better to talk with a psychologist who will help you “come to your senses.”
- Do not panic if your pregnancy is different from others. Each organism has its own individual physiological features, and its reaction to carrying a baby is difficult to predict.
Did you find out that you are pregnant? It does not matter in the early or late period, whether it proceeds like everyone else or is asymptomatic. It is important to remember only one thing – there is no stress and anxiety.
Spend more time on yourself, relax, walk and breathe the fresh air. Only the harmony of physical and mental state will allow you to feel all the delights of motherhood, starting from the early stages of pregnancy.
