When all the fibers of our body vibrate in the hope of becoming a mother and we dream of being pregnant, we are on the lookout for the slightest change that could announce a pregnancy. What are the noticeable symptoms from conception?
Waiting until the supposed date of menstruation, hoping for a positive pregnancy test… For many women in the process of conceiving, this wait is unbearable. Some of them, very attentive to their bodies, would experience pregnancy symptoms from conception. Is it possible? Mamanpourlavie.com has sought the advice of Dr. Kahia Tala Ighil, family physician at the Clinique Médicale Privée Avenir MD.
Early signs of pregnancy
On the forums, you can read the messages of women who claim to physically feel the early signs of pregnancy, and this, only a few hours after fertilization. It is possible for women to show pregnancy symptoms 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 days after intercourse. Tightness in the lower abdomen, sore breasts, nausea, ovarian pinching, fever, chills, breast swelling and mood swings are the most commonly reported symptoms.frequently.
Nothing is proven, since no study has been done in this regard, but some women have a presentiment during implantation. “Physiologically and biologically, they would know they were fertilized,” says Dr. Tala Ighil.
A frequent urge to urinate
In the first few days after implantation, women may have more frequent urination, due to an increase in the level of progesterone which causes the shaft to relax urinary. It is to this same hormone that we owe the tugging and pinching in the lower abdomen, since it also acts on the ligaments.
fatigue, feeling sleepy everywhere and all the time, tops the list of early pregnancy symptoms. It often appears before the delay of menstruation and gives women the impression of being woozy. Dr. Thal Ighil confirms that the main culprit of this state of hypersomnia is also progesterone.
The hormonal cocktail associated with early pregnancy is also the cause of sore breasts. For some women, the sensitivity is such that they can barely support their clothes. Discomfort is often accompanied by an increase in the breast. Even if conception is very early, the body is (already) preparing for breastfeeding. Fortunately, these symptoms should improve during pregnancy.
The above summarizes early pregnancy symptoms1 week after intercourse, those who may appear from implantation to the supposed date of menstruation. Now here are the other signs, those that occur around the second week after ovulation.
First Trimester Pregnancy Symptoms
As early as the second week after fertilization, women may have morning sickness. Although very unpleasant, they are often harmless and affect 80% of pregnant women. They should disappear around the twelfth week of pregnancy.
In very rare cases, less than 3% of pregnancies, a severe form of nausea (hyperemesis gravidarum) requires medical attention. Symptoms of this condition can lead to dehydration, weight loss and hormonal imbalance with consequences that can be dramatic.
Food likes and dislikes
Even if the example of ice cream with pickles is cliché, the fact remains that pregnant women often have particular tastes or pronounced dislikes. Dreaming of poutine, 24 hours a day, is therefore not abnormal. No more than a sudden revulsion for a food you've always loved. Once again, thanks to the hormones for these disturbances.
Pigment changes: Montgomery tubercles
In the first few weeks after fertilization, women may notice some changes in their skin. ByFor example, the areolas of the breasts become darker and the Montgomery tubercles (glands that surround the nipple) develop. In some women, pregnancy masks (pigmented patches) appear on the face. Dr. Thal Ighil points out that some women will quickly see the midline (between the navel and the pubis) become brownish and more marked.
The late period
Ultimately, it is the delay of the periods which puts the chip in the ear as for a possible pregnancy. However, at this stage, some women experience light bleeding caused by implantation and/or hormonal disruption. Such blood loss often confuses women. “If the bleeding is heavy or accompanied by pain, you should quickly consult a doctor since it may be a spontaneous abortion or an ectopic pregnancy says Dr. Thal Ighil.
Early signs of pregnancy are due to hormonal changes and are similar to premenstrual symptoms. During a self-diagnosis, it is not uncommon to be mistaken. Guessing games can be fun but can also lead us down the path of disappointment. To be sure, it is best to wait until your period is late and take a pregnancy test, available in pharmacies.
