News of expecting a baby brings so much joy that we forget about all the negatives of this whole process of bringing that baby into this world.
Pregnancy is a very crucial phase of a
woman’s life. Although for the most part, becoming pregnant is a
wonderful experience for most women, pregnancy has its share of issues which
almost every woman must face.
Below are a few symptoms a woman goes through
during her pregnancy:
When a woman becomes pregnant, she
becomes extremely sensitive to changes in her environment. These changes
include an increased awareness of odours and irritability of the stomach.
This sensitivity makes a woman
susceptible to nausea and vomiting, most of the time, during the first
trimester. However, a few unfortunate women suffer from these symptoms until
the delivery of the baby.
As the pregnancy of a woman progresses,
the increased size of the uterus puts additional pressure on the bladder. This
causes the bladder to empty quickly and more often. Increased rate of urination
is one of the most common symptoms which occur in pregnant women and this
continues until the baby is delivered.
During pregnancy, most women suffer
from discharge of fluid through the vagina. The colour of the discharge is
milky and is caused due to an increased amount of a hormone called estrogen in
the body of the pregnant woman.
When a woman is pregnant, a hormone
called progesterone, increases in her body. Progesterone causes the processes
which occur in the digestive tract, to slow down. This leads to accumulation of
meals and build-up of gas takes place. The build-up of gas causes bloating of
During pregnancy, a hormone called
progesterone, increases in her body. Progesterone causes the processes which
occur in the digestive tract, to slow down. This leads to accumulation of meals
and build-up of gas takes place.
The build-up of gas causes bloating of
the stomach. A combination of these changes eventually leads to constipation.
Some pregnant women suffer from
bleeding of the gums when they floss or brush their teeth. This condition
occurs because the changes in level of hormones in a woman’s body makes her
teeth very sensitive to the bacteria, present in there.
tired and headaches
You start feeling a little restless and
tired, despite that you cannot sleep for as long as you normally do, due to
changes taking place in your body and as your body gets dehydrated you start
getting very bad headaches during the night specially.
Haemorrhoids, also known as piles, is a
condition in which the blood vessels present in the rectal region, becomes
abnormally swollen. When a woman passes stool, the stools meet those blood
vessels and irritate them. This condition leads to bleeding through rectum,
itching and pain.
During pregnancy, a woman becomes
extremely sensitive, to such an extent that the slightest contact with any
substance, might cause her to start scratching.
The blood vessels in a pregnant woman’s
nose become dilated and anything which irritates them, such as hot weather, or
nose picking, might cause them to start leaking.
A pregnant woman’s body tends to retain
a lot of fluids, including water, within it. This retention of fluids causes
that woman’s limbs to swell up.
The vagina of a woman is a natural
habitat of fungi. Usually, these fungi are harmless, but when a woman becomes
pregnant, her immunity becomes very low. This causes the fungi living in the
vagina to start acting differently and cause infection in the pregnant woman.
