Signs Of How To Tell If You Are Pregnant

In your lifetime as a woman you will most likely get pregnant. What a wonderful gift it is to be pregnant and be able to give birth to something that you made. Getting pregnant is wonderful and finding out if your pregnant is exciting!

Finding out if you are pregnant can sometimes be tricky. You might think you are just feeling sick and have the flu and then the next minute you take a test and find out you are pregnant six months later. I have included some helpful information to find out if you are pregnant.

One of the most obvious signs is if you have missed your period. Some women can experience implantation bleeding around the same time as their period. Implantation bleeding is a bleeding that usually looks like your spotting. Periods actually don’t go away in a rare number of women. The period can go through the whole pregnancy for a few selectwomen.

Pregnancy tests are another popular form of finding out if you are pregnant. The pregnancy tests detect the hCG hormone in your urine. There are more accurate tests that measure 25-50 mIs of hCG in your urine and your blood can actually be different. If you are going to take a pregnancy test, you want to make sure you are going to take the test with your early morning urine. Reason being, is because it will have a higher concentration of hCG.

Blood tests are probably the most accurate way to know if you hare pregnant. You can take the blood test as early as seven to ten days post your ovulation.

Did you know that about fifty percent of women would experience morning sickness? Morning sickness isn’t the best term for what it is. Women of all ages can get sick in the morning, at night or even in the daytime. There really isn’t any exact form of what the sickness symptoms are. Morning sickness can however lead to dehydration and other problems, so you have to watch it carefully.

Breast tenderness is a big one if you are pregnant. Although, breast tenderness can be tricky, because you can have breast tenderness while you are on your period as well. Along with your breast being tender, you can experience headaches. Your hormones changing can cause headaches. Headaches are a symptom and not a sign of being pregnant. You could get pretty paranoid if you got a headache every week or so.

Pregnancy is a wonderful thing, and now you know how to detect if you hare pregnant. Remember that you could easily be a woman that has a very easy pregnancy.
