Pregnancy is a precious moment that most women want to go through. So they keep on following every symptom they feel to know if they are pregnant.

Some of these symptoms fall under the category of negative pregnancy symptoms, which are so close to menstrual symptoms, and these symptoms are known as PMS (premenstrual symptoms), as follows:

  • tiredness
  • Breast sensitivity
  • Breast engorgement
  • fatigue
  • lower abdomen bloating
  • Water retention
  • irritability
  • flipping mood

Yes, so early pregnancy symptoms can be closer to PMS symptoms, but you can also find:

  • Blood spotting few days after fertilisation.
  • Breasts are more sensitive than usual. 
  • A feeling of abdominal stretches after any simple work
  • For some women, morning sickness starts early.

A urine pregnancy test can help you detect your HCG hormone in urine, which confirms your pregnancy if it is done in the right way after a few weeks of fertilisation. Blood test is more accurate as it measures this hormone directly from the blood.

HCG hormone is produced by the placenta, and its concentration increases gradually as the fetus grows. That’s why it can be detected through urine by using a home pregnancy test. These tests can have false positive or false negative results if they are not done properly.

That’s why you need to:

  1. Wash your hands properly before using the test. 
  2. must do this test early in the morning before eating or drinking to avoid urine dilution.
  3. Do not do this test so early after fertilisation, as it may give a false negative result.
  4. This test is for single-use only.
  5. The result is what is shown a few seconds after the test is done, and if left for a long time, it may show a false positive result.

Symptoms can differ from one person to another, and the most important factor is your health and diet. Even that many women neglect the effects and importance of a healthy diet, it helps in balancing hormones and reducing any risks during pregnancy.

Reducing your sugar intake, especially artificial sugar, helps improve your immunity, reduce sugary food addiction, and reduce the risk of gestational diabetes.

Also, replacing refined oils with natural fats and butter is way better, which helps reduce oxidation and abdominal discomfort.

Starting to prepare your body for pregnancy, as we explained earlier, helps women have a smoother pregnancy than others who don’t prepare themselves with healthy habits.
