Early Pregnancy

Once your pregnancy has been confirmed you will begin to have a lot of hormonal changes. It is not necessary that all these changes will be good.Pregnancy often brings along changes in your body and can also cause a great deal of anxiety and stress.

These hormonal changes are most apparent in the first trimester. Hormonal activity during this time poses no risk to your baby; but will bring about some changes in your body.

You may feel that your breasts appear tender and that your nipples become tight and hurt every time you touch them.Even though you are pregnant you may feel bloated and may experience menstrual pains.

This does not mean that you are having a miscarriage; it is only due to the hormonal activity taking place in your body.Another very common complaint during pregnancy is that lots of women find a metallic taste in their mouth.

This is stronger in the morning and this can also cause distaste for certain foods. As your uterus is expanding you will find that you need to urinate more often. As your baby grows you may also feel pain in the abdomen as it stretches to accommodate the baby.

These hormonal changes can cause discomfort, but can also make you feel very happy. You will have mixed emotions due to the physical and emotional changes that are taking place in your body. Another common complaint in early pregnancy is of constipation and flatulence. Your doctor can help you through this by advising you on the correct foods to eat during your pregnancy.

The problem of constipation needs to be curtailed as it can lead to fissures and piles which can be a problem for you through the pregnancy.Dizziness is also very common in the first trimester. When you wake up in the morning do not get up from the bed immediately; wait a few minutes for the dizzy spell to pass.

This can be caused due to certain smells or in stuffy rooms. You will slowly begin to understand the changes taking place in your body and will be able to adjust to it. Most of these problems will pass once you begin your second trimester.
