During the first twelve weeks of pregnancy, mothers may not be fully aware that they are carrying. Many symptoms of pregnancy are similar to the monthly menstruation cycle. As the baby grows, it pushes against the mother’s bladder, causing more frequent trips to the bathroom. Alongside there is an increased appetite, which may involve cravings for certain types of food. Unfortunately, it is now that you will begin to suffer from morning sickness.
Your breasts may swell and become tender- this is your body preparing to breastfeed. Wearing a supportive bra may ease discomfort. During pregnancy, mothers often complain of spots or greasy skin. This is nothing to be alarmed about. It is the result of an increase of hormones within the body.
Many women are terrified of miscarriage during the first trimester of pregnancy. They often do not tell friends about pregnancy until after the first trimester. Miscarriage is not common despite receiving a lot of attention in magazines.
Signs Of A Miscarriage Are:
o Excessive bleeding
o Cramping or abdominal pains
o Passing of gray/pink tissue or blood clots
It is important to note that many women bleed throughout pregnancy. It would be best to have this checked by a healthcare worker.
