If you’re not been pregnant before, you’ll be amazed at the many and varied symptoms that come with it.
If you didn’t know you were pregnant, you’d be off to the doctor’s about now wondering what the hell was wrong with you!
Here are a few of the symptoms you might experience in the early days:
Sore or swollen breasts and darker nipples
Needing to wee a lot
Feeling very tired, despite having plenty of sleep
Going off food or drink you usually enjoy - fatty foods and coffee are common examples
A distinctive metallic taste in your mouth
A heightened sense of smell, for example a sensitivity towards cigarette smoke or cooking odours
Feeling emotional and crying more easily than usual
Headaches, feeling lightheaded or dizzy
Implantation cramps or bleeding (as the egg burrows into the womb lining)
And, the biggie, a missed period
Some of the first signs of pregnancy are easy to confuse with PMT or an impending period, and if you're desperate to get pregnant this can raise your hopes (sometimes cruelly). If you're not, you can end up ignoring the signs until they're pretty unmistakable.
