#HLWDK Daily Health Tips: Early Symptoms Of Pregnancy

Q: Good day Doctor. What are the early signs of pregnancy?
A: Pregnancy symptoms are always present but may be masked or mild in some people and assumed to be something else in other people. For instance, if pregnancy occurs at the same time one is going through a stressful time, there may be an assumption that this is due to stress or even the flu. I put down my own symptoms of pregnancy (during my first) to malaria! This situation is even worse in women who have irregular periods and thus may not notice the absence of a period. In some cases, women bleed and also assume that this is normal menstruation throughout their pregnancy. Generally, symptoms of pregnancy include: • Breast tenderness• Discharge: A thin milky discharge is normal during pregnancy• Heart burn and Constipation• Frequency of urination• Tiredness• Food cravings and aversions• Morning sickness/nausea So, if you do suspect that you are pregnant, get yourself tested with a home test kit or see your doctor so he/she can order a pregnancy test for you. Have a good night, y’all 😀
