Your First Month of Pregnancy

Some women experience many early signs of pregnancy and some experience few or none early on. Because every woman’s experience is different, it’s important to get prenatal care as soon as you can to make sure everything is on track. You shouldn’t rely on information you find online to tell you whether you’re pregnant or not. But, there are certain signs to watch for if you suspect.
Nausea, otherwise known as morning sickness, is a symptom that you may or may not experience right from the beginning. Some lucky women never really experience this dreaded part of pregnancy. So many things can cause the sickness, such as fatigue, different smells, and low blood sugar levels. To ease morning sickness, eat small meals and snacks at regular intervals throughout the day – don’t let yourself get an empty stomach. And keep crackers or some other snack by the side of your bed for when you just wake up.
Spotting, which is the bleeding that can happen when the fertilized egg implants to the uterus, is another symptom to watch for. Some women think they are having a period when they are actually just spotting. Spotting can be a bit different from a menstrual period though. It’s usually much lighter bleeding and is pink rather than dark in color.
Fatigue is another first sign of pregnancy that some women experience right off and some don’t. If you do experience this symptom, try to take it easy during the first months of pregnancy. Ask for help from a family member or friend if you need it. Try to go to bed at a reasonable hour, and possibly let go of any commitments you can. Your energy will come back later. Now is a time to rest and recharge.
