If you’re like me and can’t wait for that big + on a pregnancy test, then here are my top 5 signs.
(Please note that every woman is different. Not everyone has a symptom/sign. Some women don’t even know they’re pregnant until they go into labor. )
I had just suffered a miscarriage when I fell pregnant with my daughter. So when I missed a period, I was in complete and utter shock.
But leading up to my missed period, I noticed an increase in egg white cervical mucus. If you track ovulation, you know that at the time you release an egg, you have an increase in mucus.
So if you’re noticing more discharge, maybe your preggers. Just keep a pregnancy test handy.
Around a week before my periods, I noticed a crampy-like feeling in my uterus area. I normally suffer from cramps around the time of my period but this crampy feeling was accompanied by a nauseous feeling.
It felt as though my periods were about to arrive. I even felt crampy the day my period was due, but nothing happened. A few days later, after my missed period I took a test, and hey hey you guessed it. There was a big + staring back at me.
If you know me, then you know that I am always feeling hot. It could be -20 degrees outside but I won’t feel it. I never wear a jacket in winter because I’m always hot.
Leading up to my positive pregnancy test I remember getting a lot of hot flashes. Like I was going through menopause. They would last for a few seconds and then subside. My neck and cheeks would turn red and it literally felt like I was wearing 100 layers of clothing.
A week before I found out I was pregnant, I had this urge to eat lemons, vinegar and sour candy. If it wasn’t sour it didn’t interest me. I also had the urge to eat lots of fruit and vegetables and completely went off meat.
I know many women have these cravings later on into their pregnancy, but for me it was right in there, way before I took a pregnancy test.
Okay ladies, I’ll be totally honest; I had a gut feeling the day I fell pregnant. I actually knew when I ovulated and when my egg fertilized (I’m trying to sound professional).
As an empath (someone who feels things on a totally different level), I’m completely in tune with my body. When I get ill, I know where the pain is, why I got it and what I need to do to fix it. It’s really difficult to explain, but I know other empaths will understand (hopefully).
I knew the day I fell pregnant, I had that feeling that something foreign was in my body (again sounds weird, but it’s the best way I can describe it).
So when my periods didn’t come it was not a shock for me; I already had a gut feeling .
