Expecting a baby but not sure about pregnancy? Your mother, grandmother, or maybe mother-in-law will tell you to look for signs like- missed period, dizziness, fatigue, and tender breasts. But, none of them would tell you about the weird symptoms of pregnancy that occur even before those prominent signs.
Probably, they didn’t know about it because those are very common among girls even though they’re not pregnant. But this is your chance to get prepared beforehand the pregnancy test kit or doctors confirm about your pregnancy.
Check for those unusual and weird signs that nobody tells you.
11 Unlikely Signs Of Pregnancy To Check
1. Abnormal Vaginal Discharge
Pregnancy causes hormonal changes in your body that leads to increased vaginal blood flow. As a result, your vagina secretes mucus that is unusual in colour during those days.
It’s white or pale yellow and thicker than earlier. This mucus or vaginal discharge is your body’s way to prevent infection. So, if you see awful, green-yellow or pale-yellow, discharge of weird consistency, this could be because of pregnancy.
And if itchiness, burning sensation, as well as pain, come along with the discharge, it could be due to infection. Visit your doctor soon.
2. Basal Body Temperature
Basal body temperature is a great way to predict your ovulation and plan pregnancy accordingly. Your body’s temperature will be slightly more during that period.
And you’ll experience this change for more days if you are pregnant. So, monitor your basal body temperature to be sure about pregnancy.
3. Nose bleeding
Didn’t expect nosebleeding on the list? Well, it’s one of the weird signs of pregnancy that occurs due to the changes undergoing in your body.
Hormonal changes lead to increased blood flow and thus you may get nosebleeding. Don’t worry, it won’t be too much but if it is then consulting a doctor is necessary.
Your blood pressure levels go down during those days and thus you’ll feel lightheadedness and dizziness. However, it’s common among most women but some may get abdominal pain and vaginal bleeding as well.
Ectopic pregnancy leads to these symptoms. Hormonal imbalance, implantation of the egg outside the uterus, and other medical conditions may be the cause.
So, visit a doctor if you get dizziness coupled with bleeding to avoid complications.
Constipation is not always an indication that always occurs due to poor eating habits. Hormonal changes can also cause bloating, excessive gas production, and constipation. Increasing fibre intake and water can help prevent it.
6. False Period
Usually, menstruation doesn’t happen during pregnancy but a false period may occur even before you realize that you’re pregnant. A false period leads to slight bleeding or only blood spot.
It happens due to implantation bleeding, ectopic pregnancy, or cervical irritation. Unaware miscarriage can also lead to the false period but the bleeding would be heavier. Soon visit a doctor if the bleeding is more than usual and you get intolerable cramps and pain.
7. Metallic Taste
Weird taste in the mouth is also an indication that you’re pregnant. But, it doesn’t happen always as only a few of the women experience metallic taste during pregnancy.
Salt and sugar-free gum can help reduce that weird taste during eating. Spicy foods or cold beverages can also be helpful.
Acne is something that you can get any time but it’s common before and during menstruation. However, acne during pregnancy is also common but very few notice this change in their body.
Early headaches are also an early pregnancy sign to check that occur due to a change in estrogen levels. You might also experience headaches due to excessive stress or fatigue.
10. Strong smell
Your senses elevate during the early pregnancy, as a result, your smelling ability becomes strong.
11. Up and down
Mood swings are common during those days but it occurs away before you get sure about pregnancy. Also, your libido keeps changing so you’d keep experiencing hot to cold and vice versa.
Most of the uncommon symptoms of pregnancy indicate that your life is stressful. But, if these occur at the same time then it’s because there is good news coming.
Visit a doctor to get confirmed about the pregnancy.
