Pregnancy Symptoms

Pregnancy Symptoms

Missed period:

The absence of the menstrual period (amenorrhoea) is often the first sign of possible pregnancy.

Morning Sickness

Around half to two thirds of all pregnant women experience some degree of morning sickness, especially in the first few months. The symptoms include nausea and vomiting. For most women, morning sickness begins around the fourth week and resolves around the 12th week.

Breast Changes

During pregnancy, the breasts become fuller, swollen and tender. Other breast changes related to early pregnancy include a darkening of the skin around the nipple (areola) and more prominent veins across both breasts

Fatigue

Many newly pregnant women report feelings of overwhelming tiredness. In most cases, energy levels rise in about the fourth month of pregnancy, when the placenta is working properly.

Frequent Urination

Pregnancy prompts increased levels of body fluids and greater kidney efficiency. The swelling uterus also presses against the bladder.

Mood Changes

Some newly pregnant women experienced mood changes, such as irritability or weepiness. Other pregnant women experience feelings of elation. It is thought that the pregnancy hormones influence the brain chemicals and cause the mood changes.

Food Cravings

Around eight out of ten pregnant women experience cravings for at least one particular food.

Pregnancy Test

How accurate is the test?
Our urine pregnancy tests are the same kind used by hospitals and medical clinics. They can detect the hCG pregnancy hormone as early as 7 days after conception or 21 to 24 days after the first day of your last period. The test is over 99% accurate.

Can I have a retest if my test is negative and my period doesn’t start?
Yes, you may be rescheduled for another test. The hCG hormone doubles every 72 hours during the early weeks of pregnancy.
