Becoming a mom or expecting a baby is one of the best feelings you can only experience on your own. Every woman has their own experiences (good or bad) of their pregnancy. You might be excited, nervous and happy about bringing a new life to the world. But these mixed emotions can be caught with some hiccups along the way. But most common issues facing during pregnancy are almost similar for every woman.
I had a very bad experience in my first and second trimester. Those days were full of nausea, restlessness, and sleep deprived for me. But the last trimester was the best and I did enjoy the whole pregnancy in those three months. So I am sharing the most common issues which come during pregnancy, and I hope this article is a little help for you all moms to be. But yes you need to always consult your doctor whenever you experience any discomfort.
While brushing you may experience some swelling and pain in your gums. You can notice blood from your gums which often happen because of hormonal changes as a result of being pregnant. Make sure to speak to your doctor and dentist about it.
This change is because of your hormone levels along with the increase of blood supply to your skin. It is quite normal to feel hot even when the weather is not that hot. But don’t forget to discuss it with your doctor.
At pregnancy, your pelvic muscles begin to relax and prepare for the impending birth which makes your less control on your muscles and you may unwillingly end up leaking a little urine while you a cough, sneeze or sometimes even laugh. Try to do some pelvic floor exercises. But do consult your doctor first.
These hormonal changes can make you feel constipated so try to drink as much water as you can. Also include a liquid diet to your meals like juices, milkshakes, coconut water etc. Don’t forget your doctor.
Vivid and Strange Dreams:
It is okay to find such vivid and unexplainable dreams; pregnant for the first time, it can give rise to a lot of anxiety and confusion about being a mother, holding a baby etc.
Too many hormonal changes can make you feel tired from even 12 weeks of pregnancy (generally it comes around the third trimester). Listen to your body and try to take rest as much you need.
Reaching to the third trimester, your baby bump will start pouting. It will stretch your skin around the abdomen and you will feel itchy. Normal itching is okay but if it is severe go check your doctor.
You may experience a mild headache in the first few weeks, try to do yoga or relaxation techniques I am sure it will help you.
As your baby grows your womb will feel changes and that will leads towards pressure inside your stomach and you might feel indigestion. To help that try to take your meals in small proportions.
Bleeding Through Nose:
It will make you panic but don’t worry it’s just the heading. In pregnancy, your skin will feel dry because of the hormonal changes. And so will be inside your nose, which can feel chaffed and bleed a little.
You are probably thinking that you will start producing milk after your baby’s birth. In actual, your body will start preparing milk as soon as you get pregnant. It will be colostrum’s, the first milk that your body produces.
Your body is making changes and so are your hormones. You need a bigger space to take out the baby and for that body will start working out soon. The increase in vaginal discharge will only help to ward off any infection otherwise it will move from the vagina to the womb.
Bleeding from Vagina:
A little blood during your early pregnancy is known as spotting. It happens when the embryo gets implanted in the walls of your womb. Do tell your doctor the day you spot it. If it is in the first 12 weeks, it could be the sign of miscarriage.
Insomnia or Less Sleep:
I used to sleep only for 6-7 hours at the time of my pregnancy. Try to find the position in which you are comfortable and take your naps during the day. You can also try to sit in a comfortable chair and sleep a little.
Pain in the Pelvic region:
This is not a common issue because only a few women feel pain in the pelvic area while walking, climbing stairs or turning to bed. So do consult your doctor immediately for this.
Pregnancy starts with changes. The first change you will notice in your body. And according to these changes, your priorities to change. Your likes dislike, craving everything depends on your body change. Do remember every pregnancy is different you can share your experience but others woman cannot experience your experience because she had her own. Make sure to include your doctor t every change.
