Pregnancy, nature's miracle or motherhood mission. One of the most beautiful and life-changing moments a woman can experience. The process isn't without its challenges though! From morning sickness to fatigue, there are multiple symptoms that women endure when they become pregnant - often taking them by storm! Likewise one might begin wondering if the Body Aches experienced during early pregnancy can be attributed as an early sign. Sit tight reader, let's take you on an exhilarating ride through some eye-opening information.
What Are Body Aches?
When it comes to body aches we're pretty sure we all know what we’re talking about here. Nevertheless, for formality’s sake (you never know who has just landed from another planet), body aches are discomforting sensations in your muscles/soft tissues/joints/bones... basically all over your entire precious little self!
Can You Experience Body Aches As An Early Sign Of Pregnancy?
You must have heard stories about Jane Doe having crazy headaches before she found out she was expecting her first baby bear Cubby; or how Emmy Lou suddenly couldn’t stand up straight because her lower back was hell-bent on making things ‘interesting’ for the duration of her first trimester.
There is no straight answer but typically bodyaches during those long and dreary winter months come about from lack of exercise attributable to sedentary lifestyles which make us go rounder in shapes than necessary whilst our joints scream 'permission denied''! We will keep our assumptions separate as becoming pregnant isn’t quite normal – It could manifest similarly but with distinguishable nuances relative to someone who hasn’t yet conceived. That said ,It's uncommon for this symptom to occur exclusively per se & therefore hard evidence may require specialist consultation / testing
Reasons Behind Those Unwelcomed Pains In Your Precious Little Self During Early Pregnancy
As we all know, surprises aren't always good ones. But when it comes to the miracle of life, even unexpected occurrences should be welcomed with open arms! Therefore here’s our rundown on a few reasons (some within your body) that are likely responsible for painful pangs during the early days of pregnancy:
Hormonal changes (apparently these guys LOVE change!): Firstly, hormonal fluctuations are pretty much par for the course during those first few weeks; as soon as you're pregnant - BAM - hormone city welcomes you in full force! There's a sudden surge of estrogen and progesterone coursing through your veins which can lead to both physical and emotional changes in one big melting pot. Fun right? If you’d been particularly prone to joint or ligament injuries pre-pregnancy, then may be time to get ready for some extra discomfort.
A Weakened Immune System (it happens with the best of us): Alongside hormonal adjustments also comes an inevitable weakening immune system which could explain why many new mums feel like they’ve spent entire winters alternating between bleakville & sick-bay!
3.Lack Of Exercise (tires around round barrels does no favors here folks!) Not acknowledged by many but being inactive leads up unpleasant outcomes especially “Aches”.
Other Symptoms You Need To Watch For In Conjunction With Body Aches
Sometimes /most times actually , none of us really knows what's going on inside our bodies until something happens alongside such symptoms we’re trying so hard dismiss... The warning signs shouldn’t ever be ignored or taken lightly.
1.Bleeding/Cramping Spotting is common during early pregnancy however heavy bleeding accompanied by menstrual cramps suggests period rather than conception.
2.Nausea/Fever I don’t think i have met someone who enjoys nausea- there might exist a theory about how morning sickness can’t co-exist without pregnancy if so let's hear about it.
When Should You Visit A Doctor Or HealthCare Practitioner?
Self-diagnosis is frowned upon unless you're a healthcare practitioner yourself - and in such an unlikely scenario, would dissuade the practice entirely! In case these symptoms resonate with your own experiences, please seek specialist consultation at once.
- If Bleeding/Cramps intensify
- Temperature increases to 100 degrees Fahrenheit (you’re not cooked yet!)
In summary while it may be tempting to attribute your interesting changes to what society suggests are favourable outcomes; there exist several situations demanding specialists intervention & care for optimal prognosis therefore safety first.
