About Pregnancy

When you first suspect that you are pregnant and it is your first time, you may wonder “Am I pregnant, what symptoms am I suppose to look for”? Most women won’t experience any noticeable early symptoms of pregnancy until the fertilized egg attaches itself to the uterine wall, several days after conception. Some women don’t experience any indication of pregnancy before they miss a periods.

Some of the symptoms you may experience are that your breast will probably become increasingly tender in a similar way to the way you feel before you have your period. You may experience a tingling sensation in the nipples. But once your body adapts to the change in your hormones the tenderness will settle down.

One of the signs of pregnancy may be if the skin around your nipples gets darker and the small lubricating glands become more prominent with small bumps appearing, this may be a positive symptom that you have successfully conceived.

Frequent urination is also a common problem during pregnancy. It starts in the first few months and then settles down after the 12th week only to come back when there is an increase in the size of the womb as this puts pressure on the bladder and causes frequent urination again.

Some women get dark patches on there forehead and cheeks during pregnancy. These patches are caused by hormonal changes that affect the pigment cells in the skin. The navel and a line down the center of the woman’s belly may also darken. However these pigment changes will fade after your pregnancy but will probably always remain a little darker than before.

If food cravings are one of your symptoms in combination with some of the other symptoms then the chances are that you are pregnant. Normally, morning sickness won’t hit you until a few weeks into conception. A lucky few escape it altogether. But, you may begin feeling nauseated and queasy as early as a couple of days following conception. This may not just occur in the morning but this pregnancy-related nausea can be a problem any time of the day, morning, noon, or night. You may also notice that your sense of taste and smell changes.

Many women find they’re exhausted in the first trimester. Don’t worry, this is normal! This is your body’s way of telling you that you need more rest. After all, your body is working very hard to develop a whole new life. To ease exhaustion try to get at least eight hours of sleep every night, and a nap during the day.

    Great Nutrition Book, December 26, 2013

    I find the Sears writing style to be very readable and have enjoyed every book written by Dr or Martha I’ve read. This is my second pregnancy and I wish I had this book the first time around! Lots of great info for anyone and goes beyond just nutrition and food. Recommended this book to my sister who’s on her first pregnancy and she loves it too.

    Good book that doesn’t scare you, December 11, 2013

    This book is very informative and discusses important things you should know without instilling fear, as some of the other books out there are accused of. It is unbiased and discusses all sides of subject. There are side notes that explain if the authors lean towards one side or another: they explain why so you can understand and leave you with enough information to then make your own decision. I only gave it 4 stars because I purchased the kindle version and there are quick links to other points in the book that don’t take you where they should. That is really annoying but it would have been a wonderful feature, had it worked. (Oh, and I also wish someone would add a chapter to their books from the point of view of a short person. I feel physically like I am 2 months ahead of all you tall lanky ladies out there. Ie: “Around month seven you will feel your uterus start to expand over your naval”… Really? Because I am in month five and I’m pretty sure my uterus is up in my throat. Thats all lol.)
