What is The Start of a Pregnancy Just Like?
If you answered the questions above you are already worried about having a child… There is no need to rush the answer whilst you are here taking a read…
There are symptoms that will lead to a ‘yes’ on a pregnancy test. The symptoms themselves are just a guideline here.
- Food cravings
- Late or missed period?
- Frequently needing a pee?
- Lower back pain???
- Light spotting or implantation bleeding
- Mood swings
- Elevated basal temperature
- Have your breasts become swollen?
You might not need to hear this but… If you are experiencing most of these symptoms then there we go. The next step is to take a real pregnancy test.
In other ways I am here to provide you with the details of your pregnancy!
What could an elevated basal temperature possibly be?
An elevated basal body temperature occurs shortly after ovulation. Your body temperature before you get out of bed in the morning is what is called your basal body temperature…
What on earth could light spotting or implantation bleeding be?
This is one of the first symptoms of pregnancy. It is spottier and lighter colour wise than a normal period… It does not last as long too.
We have all heard of morning sickness!
Day or night, this symptom will follow you! I repeat.
It can occur any time of day
It is a symptom of pregnancy we all heard of but some know nothing about it… It is really nausea… and vomiting. Well, that’s the bottomline!!! On the positive side of all these symptoms mentioned above in the article – they will definitely leave you at some stage or another.
Food cravings are specifically something that goes along with morning sickness! Aversions specific food is a possibility…
At four months into a pregnancy most women can experience relief. Morning sickness usually ends now.
Nausea is no problem!
I said nausea is no problem but first you need a small education on the matter…
Protein. Have enough please. If its in the home its up to the whole family to ensure mom gets enough. Meat and eggs. Fish and cheese!
- Take in more complex carbohydrates
Fruit and vegetables. Grains and more…
I’m sure you know about the food pyramid right? Its rather simple. What you eat is linked to how well you can survive in and out of different environments! The better foods are definitely not the junk that most o us want and love…
especially when you are pregnant as that determines your baby’s health. After giving birth breast milk will be affected positively by healthy food too!!!
- No greasy food
- No spicy food
Also you need to pay attention to avoiding overheating in any way.
- Get enough rest…
It seems the modern health industry is entirely obsessed with taking shortcuts. When it comes to nausea though a little dose of something unusual should do the trick!
- A little bit of vitamin B6 should help you with nausea. Take about 50-100mg a day
I don’t know about you but nausea is a hell I definitely know about…
Ginger in its raw form has come to the rescue.
Hear this – it is an undeniable ‘mini cure’ for nausea.
Go ahead and try it! You use it in tea in raw form!
You can add it to your cooking.
Don’t hesitate when it comes to exploring this cheap medicine by and from nature.
Its also effective in treating nausea that comes from chemotherapy! Post-operative nausea is easily treated by ingesting ginger…
Ginger seems to be at first place but there are time tested alternatives!
Peppermint is in fact a hybrid plant. It is a cross between watermint and spearmint. That’s all for Biology Class 101!
Peppermint is known for it’s leaves and it’s oil.
Here is what it effectively treats:
- (IBS) Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Peppermint oil is safe when taken orally (by mouth) in the doses commonly used.
Peppermint oil in capsule form (for swallowing) is a really convenient way to help you out.
Peppermint leaf tea is though an obvious and delicious method you should definitely get to try.
Place a drop or two of the following aromatherapy oils on a tissue and simply inhale:
- Essential oil of ginger
- Spearmint essential oil
- Peppermint essential oil
- Cardamom essential oil
Sniffing any one of these bottled oils can help…
What about some of the other symptoms?
Breasts may be very tender, swollen and start to enlarge. Veins in the breasts may become more visible. Your nipples can also become much more sensitive…
Missed Period / Light Bleeding (spotting)
This occurs about 8-10 days from ovulation.
Spotting is caused when a fertilised egg burrows into the endometrial lining… Know what that means???
- Fertilised egg
The union between a human egg and sperm
To proceed by or as if by digging
- Endometrial Lining
This is the innermost lining layer of the uterus!
Skip the science if you need to but a missed period or light bleeding is definitely a symptom of pregnancy.
Raging hormones are the cause of this!
Along with all the other symptoms you have to put up with, irritability is unavoidable at times…
You can help yourself in these three manners…
- A healthy diet
- Moderate exercise (if you choose)
- Plenty of sleep
The Moral of the Story…
We should all have sympathy and some empathy, in fact, for any single mother out there experiencing these problems. On the other side of the canyon we call giving birth, it was essentially worth it.
It was a journey that taught you alot. You did well.
You should all enjoy some praise for surviving this long period in your life.
You have added to your family, a new member!!!
