Early Pregnancy Symptoms People Often Miss

It is not surprising if every woman on this planet wants – either openly or secretly – to bear a child at one point. Some realize it after years of being alone and focusing solely on work. Others dream of experiencing it since childhood, to the extent that they don’t mind going through in-vitro fertilization or various medical procedures to get pregnant.

Despite that, it seems more common for the expectant mother’s spouse, parents, or friends to notice it during the first months than the lady herself. That is especially true if you have always had an irregular menstrual cycle and you no longer find it odd when your period skips a month or two. So, to help you or someone else know better in the future, here are the early pregnancy symptoms people often miss.

 

Raised Basal Body Temperature

One of the real first signs of pregnancy is elevated body heat. You may not think much of it in the beginning since that usually happens when you are ovulating. However, an easy way to suspect that there may already be a growing baby in your belly is if you feel hot for weeks on end.

 

Vaginal Discharge

Seeing clear, white, or yellowy release from your vagina is another normalcy that may be among the early pregnancy signs. You see, that typically happens when that body part “cleans” itself to prepare for the possible fusion of sperm and egg. In case it is quite excessive, though, it should serve as a clue that you are likely pregnant.

 

Dysgeusia

Have you felt like you just ate stainless steel or coins?

That metallic taste in your mouth is honestly distinctive for expecting women as well. The proper term for this condition is dysgeusia, and it occurs when your progesterone and estrogen levels keep on increasing.

 

Hyper Sense Of Smell

Similarly, it is not only your sense of taste that changes during the early signs of pregnancy. Your ability to smell may also become extreme, to the point that you may get a whiff of food or people from a few meters. It is hard to tell whether it’s a good or bad thing, to be honest, since it helps you distinguish your favorite aromas as well as the suffocating odors.

 

Heartburn

Do you know how sometimes you feel acid coming up from your stomach, but other times that sensation isn’t there? The reason is that there is a valve that separates the opening of your esophagus and stomach. That keeps gas from going upwards quite often.

Considering the heartburn appears to come regularly, however, and you are confident that you are not acidic, then it can be one of the symptoms of pregnancy. That’s because the valve mentioned above becomes lax when you are pregnant. The result, therefore, is that acid can freely move up, primarily when you have heavy meals and fizzy drinks.

 

Spotting

It seems natural to miss pregnancy signs as well when you bleed lightly. It looks and feels similar to what takes place during menstruation, after all. You may even experience abdominal cramping and mood swings. However, once you rule out the possibility that the spotting may be due to infection, you can go to an OB-GYN to confirm if you are a soon-to-be mom or not.

 

Urination At Short Intervals

It is not true that frequent trips to the bathroom to pee are one of the latter signs of pregnancy. You tend to want to urinate often during the first trimester as that’s when your body makes space for another human being, you need to produce more blood, and you drink water all the time.

 

Constipation

You may also notice that you cannot pass bowel or gas as quickly as before. This slow metabolism is a side effect of the hormonal changes you are going through, you know. Hence, doctors recommend prenatal vitamins to mothers, along with stool softeners to make the process smooth.

The early pregnancy symptoms are as effortless to identify as they are to miss. You merely have to be aware of the transformations that your body endures, and then it won’t be difficult for you to know whether you are pregnant or not next time.
