Missed your period? You might be pregnant!

If you have been trying to get pregnant, tracking your menstrual cycle, and have missed your period; it might be time for a good news! But do not get too excited too soon, you might be experiencing these symptoms owing to stress and hormonal changes.

Some early signs of pregnancy, you may experience some, all, or none of these:

  1. Missed period. If your period doesn’t start on time, you might be pregnant, but do not take a pregnancy test too soon, as sometimes the periods are delayed due to stress as well. Wait for another week and then go for pregnancy test.
  2. Morning sickness. You may feel sick to your stomach between the sixth and twelfth weeks of pregnancy.
  3. Frequent urination. Your blood volume is rising, which leads to extra processed fluid and ending up in your bladder. This will continue or increase with your pregnancy.
  4. High basal body temperature. This is an effective measure to monitor early pregnancy. There are specific thermometers available for measuring basal body temperature and you can buy one to monitor your daily basal body temperature. Your temperature will be elevated if you have conceived and stay elevated throughout your pregnancy.
  5. Dizziness. This is a common symptom for early pregnancy. This can be related to low blood sugar or dehydration, to blood shifts in the body, especially when a woman changes position.
  6. Altered sense of smell and food cravings. This may happen very early. Your sense of odor may change, and you may become more sensitive to aromas from food or cooking.
  7. Mood swings. Due to hormonal changes, you may experience heightened emotions, good and bad; sometimes depressed or anxious. But mood changes could also be a sign of delayed menstrual cycle.
  8. Breast tenderness. Six weeks after a missed period, you may notice that your breasts feel fuller, and nipples may be more sensitive.
  9. Abdominal bloating. Your clothes may feel tighter than usual at the waistline because hormonal changes can make you bloated.
  10. Fatigue. You may feel more sluggish and sleepy than usual as early as one week after conception.

Do not jump to conclusions too soon, a delayed period and other symptoms listed above could be due to stress and hormonal changes as well. Wait for 1-2 weeks after your expected period date, and then go for a pregnancy test.

Good luck with “trying to get pregnant”!
