Weird Symptoms Of Pregnancy


Missing your period, feeling nauseated, tender breasts and getting tired all the time are some of the classic symptoms of pregnancy. However, other than these first signs, the pregnant women also experience a whole multitude of symptoms. Some of those symptoms include headaches, mucus discharge and tasting metal. Weird, isn’t it? So, you need to expect the unexpected.
Your body starts preparing itself the moment you become pregnant.
New and different hormones begin pumping out, and the effects can be a little unusual. You may also notice the signs of pregnancy even a week after you conceive. Your body starts behaving in odd ways. Here we have given ten symptoms of pregnancy that no one would have told you about.

A constant cold
Some women, when they get pregnant, they start coughing and sneezing constantly. This might even make them stuffed up and lead to a troubled sleep. However, this, now, turns out to be a normal symptom of pregnancy.
Pregnancy makes your blood volume and hormones to increase. One of the aftereffects is that your mucous membranes puff and dry out. As and when your nasal passages get dry, it signals your body that it requires moisture, which indicates more mucus production. Many cold and allergy medicines are off limits during pregnancy. And hence if you’re suffering from this persistent cold, you may need to talk to your doctor. You can try to reduce the dryness with nasal drops and a humidifier. Another natural way to remove the mucus that is build up is a neti pot.

Sweatband, please
As and when you get pregnant, your body starts working hard since it has to grow an adorable baby. Hence, it starts to pump a lot more blood. This, in turn, increases your metabolism. This means you are going to sweat a lot.
So, if you ever notice that you are waking up in a pool, then you may need to check when your previous period was. This can be considered as an early symptom of pregnancy. If you want a little relief from that, you can try dressing in layers that are simple to remove during the day. And, moreover, stay hydrated!

Where’s the bathroom?
Most of us know that woman who is nine months pregnant need go to the bathroom every hour. However, that need can occur from the very beginning. You may need to be rushing to the bathroom more even when you are in the first trimester, because of increased blood volume and new hormones. You might find it annoying. But, you should make sure that you keep drinking water and keep yourself hydrated.
Pregnancy makes the joints and organs to relax. This actually helps when it’s time to fit a baby out, but not very much when our digestive tracts slack off. When we have food, our systems are slower to push food simultaneously. That drives to an upset stomach and hence constipation. So, you need to try to get plenty of water and remain active so as to get things moving.

When you are pregnant, your digestive tracks tends to slow down, and this also means that the food in your stomach remains there longer, which can create a feeling of heartburn.
Stomach acid can also leak back up your oesophagus thus creating a burning after having food. If you want some remedy for that burning sensation, you can consult your doctor. You could also try eating small, frequent meals so as to avoid having a stomach stuffed with food. You can also drink plenty of water since it will help in making your stomach feel full.

Is that my period?
For most of the women, a missed period is the first sign of pregnancy. However, you could also experience ‘false period’. You don’t have to get discouraged if you and your spouse have been trying to become pregnant, and you see spotting or a very light period one month.
Sometimes, women find some bleeding around two weeks after the conception. This is mainly because of the hormones. Some of the spottings could also be from the embryo implanting in the uterus wall. Sadly, bleeding can also indicate something that something more serious is going on. Hence, you may need to check with your doctor if you are very much concerned about it and also if you find your bleeding to be heavy.

My aching back
Most of the women are under the impression that backaches are just for women who are about to give birth. However, some women have reported having back pain during their entire pregnancies.Thus, if you observe a dull ache in your lower back, it could be an initial sign of pregnancy. Prenatal yoga or staying active with walking will help you with that. Nevertheless, if it is bothering you, you should talk with your doctor.

Metal for dinner
As and when you become pregnant, you understand that your hormones indeed affect every body process, which includes your sense of taste! The raised levels of the hormones progesterone and oestrogen can make food taste unusual. You might even feel a metallic taste in your mouth when you are pregnant.
It will go away after you deliver your baby. However, it may kill the joy out of eating. If you want to overcome the metal taste, you can try spicy foods. You may also try chewing sugarless gum and also drink cold water during the day.

The common signs
If you’ve observed any of these weird marks of pregnancy, keep your eye out for the more likely ones. The first sign of pregnancy for around 29 percent of women is a missed period. Another important sign is nausea or morning sickness. This can extend from feeling a little uncomfortable all the way to growing dehydrated from continuous vomiting. According to a survey given by the American Pregnancy Association, for about 25 percent of the women, nausea was the first sign. Tender breasts were noticed as the first sign by around 17 per cent of women.
Other than all these symptoms, the best way to find out if you are actually pregnant is an ultrasound and a pregnancy test with your doctor. Go ahead and schedule your appointment with the doctor if you feel you are pregnant.
