What You May Be Feeling

Dec 17, 2010 No Comments by

As always, remember that every pregnancy and every woman is different. You may experience all of these symptoms at one time or another, or only one or two. Some may have continued from last month, others may be new. You may also have other, less common, symptoms. Don’t be surprised, no matter what your symptoms (or lack,thereof), if you don’t “feel” pregnant yet. Here’s what you might experience this month:

Physically

  • Fatigue, lack of energy, sleepiness
  • Frequent urination
  • Nausea, with or without vomiting
  • Excess saliva
  • Constipation
  • Heartburn, indigestion, flatulence, bloating
  • Food aversions and cravings
  • Breast changes : fullness, heaviness, tenderness, tingling; darkening of the areolas (the pigmented area around your nipples); lubrication glands in the areolas becoming prominent, like large goose bumps; a network of bluish lines that appear under your skin as the blood supply to your breasts increase
  • Slight whitish vaginal discharge
  • Occasional headaches
  • Occasional faintness or dizziness
  • A little rounding of your belly; your clothes feeling a little snugger

Emotionally

  • Emotional ups and down (like amped-up PMS), which may include mood swings, irritability, irrationality, inexplicable weepiness
  • Misgivings, fear, joy, elation – any or all of these
  • A sense of unreality about the pregnancy (“Is there really a baby in there?”)
