My mother knew I was pregnant twice before I found out. These are the subtle little things she swore were the signs that I was pregnant. The development of new tastes for certain foods and the way my hips looked.
Waiting for their periods is the most common way women know if they are pregnant or not. The moment a woman conceives, her body begins to work so that it is ready for the baby that will develop in its mother’s womb for 40 weeks.
During all the changes that occur inside, the body releases the signs of a pregnancy through changes that are sometimes confused with a flu or just fatigue. Here are 14 signs that will let you know if you are pregnant.
1. A woman’s hormone levels increase during pregnancy. Especially the levels of estrogen and progesterone increase.
The increase in these two hormones decreases or completely stops menstrual bleeding.
2. Vomiting during pregnancy does not occur only in the morning
This may be the reason why most people confuse morning sickness with food poisoning or a stomach bug. Pregnancy causes hormone levels to slow down digestion.
