'I think I might be pregnant - How many times have you heard a woman say that?
The early symptoms of pregnancy are easy to recognize - even more so when you've been pregnant before. Whether this is your first, second, or third pregnancy, the signs and symptoms are the same. However during one pregnancy, you may experience incredible breast pain or nausea, while during another pregnancy you might feel fine but just find yourself weeing a lot! The simple fact is that each pregnancy, just like each newborn, is different and you can't count on having the same symptoms during every pregnancy.
If your period is a bit late, then you may be concerned with early pregnancy signs and pregnancy symptoms. Here is a handy list of all the common early pregnancy signs that might show up before or after you take a pregnancy test:
Common Pregnancy Symptoms
nausea and/or vomiting (aka morning sickness) breast tenderness fatigue bloating mood swings delayed period or spotting (aka implantation bleeding) increased urination constipation
If you have any of the symptoms or you just 'feel' you may be pregnant,then you must take a pregnancy test. Make sure you follow the directions exactly. Most pregnancy tests require that your period is late.
One point to remember is that while these symptoms are common during pregnancy, sometimes none of these symptoms occur.
Pregnancy Health & Nutrition Tip: During pregnancy, the amount of blood in the body steadily increases until you have as much as 50% more than usual. Because iron is essential during pregnancy, women have increased iron needs. There are specific products available such as Feosol iron supplements, which are one of the easier ways to boost the body's iron stores if you are unable to get adequate amounts of iron from your diet alone .
