Pregnant: What Symptoms?

A few days late menstruation, unusual sensations and this question that arises as an obvious: and if I was pregnant? What are the first signs of this happy event and how do we recognize them?

The Delay of Menstruation: the First Sign of Pregnancy

Unusual Fatigue

Usually, nothing stops you. Suddenly, you turn into a real marmot. Everything tires you. Unrecognizable, you spend your days to doze and wait for only one thing: the evening to be able to sleep.

Always plan a small snack, even when you jump out of bed. Splitting your meals by eating more often in smaller quantities is sometimes effective in alleviating these unpleasant symptoms. If some women experience only some unpleasant nausea, others have to cope with more vomiting. Do not hesitate to tell your doctor if this is the case and if the symptoms persist.

Constipation, Heartburn, Heaviness

Another small inconvenience very pleasant: it is not uncommon in the first weeks of pregnancy to feel heartburn, heaviness after meals, bloating. Constipation is also part of the usual ailments.
