Of course, there are many different signs of pregnancy
and different symptoms that you may or may not experience. These signs,
are literally that. Signs from our body that we need to be made aware of
something, guess what we're having a baby is the cry from below.
At the first signs of pregnancy, most women make a beeline
to the pharmacy and purchase a home pregnancy test kit. This is most often
the best way to establish whether you are pregnant or not. Many women are
nervous or shy about buying a pregnancy test kit, it really should not
be anything to worry about. However, it is understandable in some cases
where you do not want other people to find out you may be pregnant.
If you live in a small town or one prone to gossip, try
purchasing a pregnancy test kit online. Or if you are in a rush, you could
visit your local mother's group or doctor for a confidential test. Most
importantly, do not put off taking the pregnancy test kit, especially if
you are showing different signs of pregnancy.
Using a pregnancy test kit is reasonably straight forward.
Upon the first signs of pregnancy, they are used to determine pregnancy
by testing for a hormone called "Human Chorionic Gonadotropin" which is
found in women's urine. The hormone is also well known as the "pregnancy
hormone", this is because when it is found, it means that a women is pregnant.
Most tests work on a simple basis, one signal for pregnant and another
signal for not pregnant. If you're unsure you should read the instructions
If one of the signs of pregnancy you are experiencing
is a missed period, the optimum time to use a home pregnancy test kit is
as soon as you're aware that the period has been missed. You may experience
other signs of pregnancy such as morning sickness, swollen breasts or tiredness,
however in our opinion taking the test following a missed period is good
If your test is positive, it is then important to get
this confirmed by a medical professional. They will take a blood test and
talk to you about what to expect during your pregnancy. If it is your first
baby, they will discuss the different signs of pregnancy, hereditary illnesses
and whether you are on any medication that may harm the baby. It is important
to use this time to ask about anything you are not sure of.
After the first signs of pregnancy and the confirmation,
you maybe feeling a little strange emotionally. In the grand scheme of
things, being told that you are expecting a baby is a massive life changing
moment. So whether the pregnancy was planned or a wonderful accident, it
is often best to spend a day or two getting used to the idea of being pregnant,
before telling anyone else.
Remember, the signs of pregnancy are just that. Signs
from our body that it is time for change, start to look after yourself
better, eat more healthily and drink lots of water.
