According to the state of health
At the earliest stages of pregnancy, a woman who knows her body will necessarily pay attention to changes in health. That is why a significant category of expectant mothers before the pregnancy test knows about their interesting situation:
- Misery. With the onset of pregnancy, the woman's immunity is always reduced. Therefore, there is a feeling of malaise, weakness, lack of assortment and fast fatigue. Sometimes a woman becomes drowsy and irritable. It is also possible to alternate the sensations of heat and cold. This symptom is associated with an increase in body temperature and a decrease in pressure. Some pregnant women notice that their face turns red in the evening. Women sometimes confuse such a state with a cold and believe that this is the first symptoms of ARI or the flu. The main thing in this case is not to grab at once for medicines that can harm a future child.
- Chest sensitivity. Swelling of the nipples or pain of the mammary glands are a frequent sign of pregnancy. Usually such symptoms appear 1-2 weeks after conception. It happens in pregnant women and such that it is simply impossible to touch the breast because of pain. Another indication of an interesting situation may be the darkening of the nipples and the skin around them.
- Severity in the pelvic region. With the onset of pregnancy and the increase in the uterus, pelvic organs receive more blood. Therefore, some women feel this increase, and in some cases, notice and tingling in the uterus. Sometimes such symptoms are added and the appearance of hemorrhoids in the early stages of pregnancy.
By spotting blood
With the onset of pregnancy, a woman may notice a slight dirty red discharge from the vagina. Their appearance is explained simply. This is the result of the implantation (implantation) of a fertilized egg into the wall of the endometrium of the uterus. In other words - the attachment of the fetal egg, which is accompanied by a slight damage to the uterine epithelium. In a small category of women, implantation is accompanied by bleeding, while in other women there is no discharge at all.< h2> At the basal temperature
Many women who want to conceive a baby are conducting basal temperature (BT) graphs. Recall that this temperature is measured with a thermometer in the rectum, vagina or in the mouth. Do this every day in the morning, without getting out of bed. In the first half of the cycle, that is, from the first day of the month, BT will keep at the level of 36, 7-36, 9 degrees Celsius. During the period of ovulation (on day 14 of the cycle), it rises to 37-37, 2 degrees Celsius. If the pregnancy has come, the temperature does not drop to the previous level, but keeps at around 37 and slightly higher. This is another sign of pregnancy. Elevated basal temperature of a pregnant woman will be a couple of weeks before the beginning of the functioning of the placenta.
On the test
The level of today's pharmacology allows a pregnant woman to learn about changes in the body before the delay in menstruation. This can be done with sensitive and ultrasensitive pregnancy tests. They "work" already 5-7 days before the delay. Pregnancy tests come with a sensitivity of 25 mM, 20 mM, 10 mM. You should know that in early pregnancy, to determine it, you should buy a test with a sensitivity of 10 mM. That is, a test that reacts to a small amount of the hormone of chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) in the urine. It appears in the body only when a woman is pregnant, and at first its amount is small. But even at a low concentration of HCG, a test with high sensitivity will react with two strips.
On the analysis of blood
Pregnancy tests respond to the presence of hCG in the urine. A blood test for hCG is considered a more reliable indicator of a woman's pregnancy. Such an analysis can also be done before the onset of menstruation and make sure of its interesting situation.
If you feel that you are pregnant, even before the delay of menstruation, then be careful with taking pharmacological drugs. Refrain from taking traditional tablets against headaches or other disorders. Remember that in the early days, the influence of drugs and nervousness can interfere with the development of the fetus.
