14 Week Pregnancy Symptoms
The 14 weeks pregnant symptoms can be a little confusing, because some women experience almost no symptoms, while others have symptoms that last throughout their entire pregnancy. In general, the most common symptoms are fatigue, morning sickness, and swollen ankles.
The fatigue you experience during pregnancy is due to the extra work your body is doing to grow and support the baby. Many women find that they need more sleep than usual, and may feel more tired in the morning.
Morning sickness is a common symptom of early pregnancy, and is thought to be caused by the hormonal changes your body is going through. Some women experience it in the morning, but for others it can happen at any time of the day. The good news is that it usually goes away by the end of the first trimester.
Swollen ankles can be caused by the extra fluids your body is holding on to. This is normal during pregnancy, and usually goes away after the baby is born.
Other common symptoms of pregnancy include mood swings, changes in appetite, and breast tenderness. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is important to consult with your doctor. He or she can help you to understand what is happening in your body and answer any questions you may have.
There are many symptoms associated with pregnancy. Some women experience all of them, while others only experience a few. The most common symptoms of pregnancy include:
• nausea and vomiting
• changes in appetite
• mood swings
• breast tenderness
• frequent urination
• darkening of the areola
• linea nigra
Most of these symptoms are a result of the hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy.
Symptoms Of Cervix Opening During Pregnancy
During pregnancy, the cervix may start to dilate (open) prematurely. This is called cervical incompetence or cervical insufficiency. When the cervix starts to open too early, there is an increased risk of miscarriage.
The most common symptom of cervical incompetence is bleeding from the vagina. This may be light spotting or heavy bleeding. Other symptoms may include cramps, back pain, and a feeling of pressure in the pelvis.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is important to see your doctor. He or she will perform a pelvic exam and may order some tests, such as an ultrasound or a test called a hysteroscopy, to determine if you are experiencing cervical incompetence.
If it is determined that you are suffering from cervical incompetence, your doctor may recommend treatment. This may include bed rest, medication, or surgery.
Third Trimester Pregnancy Symptoms
As your pregnancy enters its third trimester, you may start to experience some new and different symptoms. Here are some of the most common third trimester pregnancy symptoms:
• Increased fatigue – As your body works harder to support your growing baby, you may feel more tired than ever. This is normal, and you should try to get as much rest as possible.
• Increased urination – You may find yourself needing to go to the bathroom more often, especially at night. This is because your baby is putting pressure on your bladder.
• Swelling – You may start to swell up, especially in your feet and ankles. This is due to the extra fluid your body is holding on to.
• Braxton Hicks contractions – These are mild contractions that can start happening in the third trimester. They are not harmful and are just your body’s way of preparing for labor.
• Back pain – As your baby grows, he or she will start to put pressure on your spine. This can cause back pain.
• Difficulty sleeping – It may be harder to get comfortable and fall asleep in the third trimester.
• Increased appetite – You may find yourself getting hungrier than usual.
Although these symptoms can be troublesome, remember that they are all normal and temporary. Try to relax and take things easy as you approach your due date.
How Long Do Pregnancy Symptoms Start
The early signs and symptoms of pregnancy may vary from woman to woman, but typically they will start around 6-8 weeks after conception. Symptoms may include fatigue, morning sickness, changes in breast size or sensitivity, and frequent urination. Pregnancy symptoms are typically caused by the hormones of pregnancy, which can cause changes in the body’s normal functioning. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is important to see your doctor to confirm that you are pregnant.
