Symptoms of pregnancy in the first days


If you're a graph of basal temperature, you can identify a pregnancy even before the first symptoms. However, even under the supervision of a clear "picture" of conception on the chart you want to find some more evidence of their guesses. Ideally, of course, be tested for HCG, or at least to do the test, but you can also listen to your feelings and look at the changes. Sometimes the symptoms of pregnancy appear in the first days after conception. Of course, we can not say that you will notice changes almost a few hours after intercourse. But after some time the body will gradually rebuilt under the new regime, to ensure the safety of the ovum and favorable conditions for its development.

Symptoms of pregnancy in the first days is not expressed and manifested not always, however, some of them are particularly sensitive and considerate woman is able to recognize. Spotting 6-12 days after conception a woman may observe at spotting. It may be conventional bleach mixed with blood or blood-streaked, and creamy yellow discharge, beige or pinkish hue. Contact with blood cells in the vaginal discharge is due to the implantation of the ovum: just by the time it reaches the uterus and makes its landing. To attach to the surface of the blastocyst in the uterine epithelium scrapes a small indentation to put down their roots here. Scarce spotting could be renewed in the days of increased activity of the ovum. Very often women take them for the beginning of next month. Note that this symptom is not observed in 100% of cases. Then, on the conception held may indicate other symptoms of pregnancy in the first days. The symptoms of acute respiratory disease around the same time you may feel unwell.

 Unsuspecting pregnant women sure she caught a cold. On the background of elevated body temperature runny nose, sore throat, body aches, severe physical fatigue. Hot flashes are replaced by chills, a woman can not get warm, and suddenly it becomes impossible to breathe. Well, if you're not used to treat or prefer innocuous folk methods (hot tea, bed rest), because the drug can damage the future baby and even cause miscarriage in early pregnancy. This "disease" in the first days of pregnancy is understandable: the body temperature rises under the influence of progesterone, whose level in the blood with the onset of pregnancy is increasing rapidly. Other symptoms are joined by a temporary drop immunity, which is necessary to secure the fetal eggs: the female body perceives it as a foreign body and tries to get rid of the "invader."

 Reducing the protective functions mom helps future baby to settle down in the womb. Drowsiness and fatigue symptoms at the same time align the overall fatigue. Some women feel the most real physical and moral exhaustion: they are exhausted, always want to sleep, maybe even develop apathy. Dream becomes stronger in the evening and at night and in the morning interrupted. Get up at times, it seems impossible for the night you are not sleeping at all. These symptoms occur in the first days after conception and also due to the activity of progesterone and the tremendous work that your body started to change their condition.

 Humor can sometimes be bad at all: associates notice that you have been flashing for nothing, and you, this, of course, even more annoying. After the second month, the situation has to change: to take care of the mental stimulation of estrogen, the level of which will increase with the time limit. See also first signs of pregnancy The first signs of pregnancy after conception Symptoms missed abortion Symptoms of early pregnancy The first signs of pregnancy after a delay Nausea and vomiting in the first place, but nevertheless very often find expression these symptoms of pregnancy in the first days.

 Collar women not only smells, but even the thoughts of some products. Taste and smell preferences abruptly changed. Poor health and increased salivation may be adopted for the poisoning, especially if they are joined by more and vomiting. All of these reactions are protective, and do not carry any threat if expressed slightly. In the case of large losses saliva and often repeated vomiting worsening state of the expectant mother, which also has a negative impact on the development of the fetus. Therefore it is necessary to discuss this issue with your doctor. Not ruled out the opposite turn of events: the appetite women are so improved that it may even scare it. And usually you want something specific, often - do not mix with each other. Changes in the breast Many women breasts swell and become somewhat more sensitive every time before menstruation.

 But with the onset of pregnancy you notice that this time it is not, as usual. Enhanced sensitivity so that any touch delivers chest pain and discomfort. The very severe chest grows significantly, and may even darken the nipple and areola. The reverse effect: a very sensitive breasts before each menstruation, this time surprisingly did not hurt. Changes in the uterus, of course, the feeling in the uterus are also present. It swells and increases in size due to a sharp increase circulation.

 These changes are quite noticeable, women suffer from bloating inside. The uterus may hurt and tingling, often present nagging pains. Other pain disorders in general, with the pregnancy can hurt almost anything, and this disgrace will continue throughout the childbearing. Very often, expectant mothers complain of backache and pain in the back and lower back, extending to the coccyx.

 Can hurt the feet, head, teeth. What can we say about chronic sores that emerge with the onset of pregnancy, like mushrooms after rain. Limbs may swell a little, the pressure is reduced, dizziness and fainting. Increased urination top of the whole picture you are starting to run to the toilet, including at night. So it will not always, but in the first trimeter similar symptoms - frequent. With the onset of pregnancy desires much more frequent, but normally not accompanied by "abnormal" symptoms: burning and sharp pains in the abdomen.

 If you feel pain on the background of frequent urination, it is likely that worsened urinary infection. Check with a doctor required! Basal Temperature And finally, something with which we started. By measuring the basal temperature, you are bound to define in terms of a pregnancy. If conception has occurred, the basal temperature of the luteal phase is held at high elevations and falls. About pregnancy with high probability we can say if the figures remain at 37,1-37,3 C for at least 18 consecutive days. A typical symptom of pregnancy is the so-called retraction of the implantation temperature: against the background of increased rates of BT, one day down, then back to recovery.

 With the onset of menstruation delay suspected pregnancy naturally amplified. Take a pregnancy test, repeat it a few days to ensure the reliability of the results. It should be noted that it is not necessary that you will see at one or more of these symptoms. It is possible that the symptoms in the first days of pregnancy specifically in your case will be different. Some women notice redness of the face (especially in the evening), others exacerbated thrush or hemorrhoids, and others experiencing bloating and suffer from constipation.

"

Potential problems

4 weeks of pregnancy: an expectant mother may be ill and pull the abdomen, this is due to the fact that in this period, usually a woman should begin menses.

It menstrual process, which has already tweaked over the years, interfere with the pregnancy hormones violates women and increases the tone of the uterus, and at 4 weeks of pregnancy may appear spotting brownish discharge.

If the uterus of a pregnant woman is in good shape, it can cause miscarriage, so tolerate the feeling of tension and prolonged uterine pain in the abdomen and lower back can not. The reason for the tone of the uterus often becomes a lack of the hormone progesterone, or inflammatory processes in the body of the future mother.

At 4 weeks of pregnancy, if desired, you can do an ultrasound, which can identify the corpus luteum of pregnancy - a temporary endocrine gland that is formed after ovulation and produces the hormone progesterone.

If fertilization has occurred, under the influence of the hormone human chorionic corpus luteum (now it is called the corpus luteum graviditatis) remains active for 10-12 weeks, producing necessary for the development and preservation of pregnancy, progesterone, which stimulates growth of the endometrium and prevents the release of new eggs and menstruation. Yellow body is maintained as long as the placenta is not in a position to produce their own estrogen and progesterone.

Although modern ultrasound machines in the state by 4 weeks of pregnancy to determine the fetus was already fixed on the wall of the uterus, such research at such an early period held in rare cases, because the woman may not yet know or just starting to think about a possible pregnancy.

4 weeks of pregnancy: TIPS

Although modern pregnancy tests are so sensitive that they can fix the pregnancy is already at 4 weeks, remember that it depends on the concentration of hCG in the urine, and is hoping for this indicator is not necessary. For a more precise answer is recommended to conduct a test in the fifth week of pregnancy, when the content of this hormone in the urine to reach the required level.

In this period, and even before, as well as in the process of preparing for pregnancy, doctors recommend taking folic acid.

What else is necessary to pay attention to during pregnancy to a pipsqueak born healthy? It turns out, it is worth remembering about hygiene.

We take care of oneself

Everyone knows that an expectant mother, especially in the first trimester of pregnancy, reduced immunity. It is physiologically justified - because my mother's body creates the best conditions for the development of the fetus. However, the woman in this period becomes more vulnerable to various kinds of infections - both respiratory and cause gastrointestinal disease. Typically, these diseases do not harm the unborn child, but any discomfort during pregnancy is not desirable, especially if there is a need to take medication. How to protect yourself from infection?

World expert in the field of hygiene Dettol® pays special attention to infections transmitted through the hands. We tend to think that the flu and acute respiratory viral infections spread by droplet infection: Avoid contact with a cold, sneezing and coughing people use gauze bandage, try not to be in public places during the mass disorders. All of this is especially important during pregnancy. However, it is equally important to protect against respiratory infection ... to wash your hands!


Infectious agents are waiting for us not only in the air but also on surfaces which touches a large number of people. It handles in public places, handrails in public transport, furniture and counters in restaurants and stores. During pregnancy, the habit of washing hands with soap and water after any such contacts can do a good job.

Will antibacterial agents and the risk of catching an intestinal infection - not for nothing that these ailments are called "disease of dirty hands". During pregnancy, be especially careful to where and what you eat. Here are a few tips to help you avoid gastrointestinal diseases.

Drink only water tested;
Do not eat on the street, in kiosks of fast food;
Always check the shelf life of products and packaging integrity, especially in the hot season, the right of transporting and storing;
Eat only well-cooked meat, fish, seafood. (Effluent from the meat juice should be clear, the meat should not be pink inside.) Discard not undergone a complete heat treatment of animal products;
Avoid pasteurized (raw) milk and products made from it (some types of cheese, ice cream, yogurt), - they may contain bacteria listeria, which cause infectious disease. (Listeria differs from most other food bacteria so that it can multiply at low temperatures in a refrigerator.);
Cook hard-boiled eggs - raw or undercooked eggs may contain the bacteria salmonella, Salmonella pathogen. Be careful with the products and dishes that may contain raw eggs (mousse, ice cream, mayonnaise, other sauces).

We think about the future baby

Unfortunately, there are some infections that can not only cause discomfort expectant mother, but also harm the fetus. Thus, protection against rubella, or varicella possible if vaccinated before pregnancy or to avoid contact with a carrier of the disease. But sometimes a carrier of dangerous infection to the fetus becomes a person and pet.

If you keep at home a cat during pregnancy, ask someone else to change the cat litter. The fact that the excrement of the animal can be contained protozoan parasites - Toxoplasma. They cause toxoplasmosis may adversely affect the development of the unborn baby.

If you have to maintain the purity of their own litter box, touch the tray and filler only disposable gloves, then wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water.

If you have a home rodent (eg hamster or guinea pig), ask someone in the family to take care of them before birth. Pet rodents, such as hamsters, gerbils and guinea pigs can transmit lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus, infection which is dangerous to the fetus.

Pet reptiles (lizards, snakes, iguanas, turtles, etc.) Can be carriers of salmonella contained in their feces, so they also pose a threat to the health of pregnant women and the unborn baby.

Always wear disposable gloves for the care of such animals and wash your hands after contact with them, if you can not delegate it to someone out of their home.

Washing hands will be more effective if you use one of the products Dettol®. Antibacterial liquid soap and bar soaps Dettol® remove 99.9% of bacteria, including E. coli and Staphylococcus aureus. Antibacterial liquid soap Dettol® available in four versions, carefully cleans and dries the skin. Soap Dettol® original works as effectively and for those who prefer the traditional bar soaps.
