Early Pregnancy Symptoms - Coping With The 3 Common Symptoms!

Mar 27, 2008
It is a time of combined excitement as well as apprehensions! Yet it is undoubtedly a thrilling event in any woman's life! What exactly are we talking about here? It is the state of pregnancy! There is joy because of the new life growing within the expectant mother's womb, but there is also anxiety because of the not-so-comfortable changes taking place within her body! Though these feelings of discomfort are bound to disappear eventually as every experienced mother will tell her, the new mother-to-be does need some initial help in coping with these early pregnancy symptoms.

Fortunately for the pregnant woman, medical knowledge has advanced so much that she can take the help of modern methods to cope with her early pregnancy symptoms. And tried and proven methods used by earlier generations are also there as a standby!

There are three major early pregnancy symptoms which are experienced by pregnant women in general-

(1) There is a general feeling of fatigue and lessening of energy. There are great hormonal changes taking place within the expectant mother's body as it is trying to provide support for the growing fetus in her womb. And her body systems also seem to be working overtime!

The only solution for this is getting plenty of rest, which the mother-to-be finds a little difficult to do. Support from her male partner and other members of the household is essential here. She can even resort to 20-minute naps at intervals. They should really get her going!

(2) Who has not heard of morning sickness? These early pregnancy symptoms of nausea and vomiting seem so common that people feel surprised when they hear that some pregnant women have never experienced them! The term is a misnomer as the symptoms can be exhibited at any time of the day, not necessarily in the morning itself.

There are different remedies suggested for this malady, which include-drinking tea spiced with ginger or peppermint, drinking lemon lime soda, consuming saltine crackers, or ingesting a snack (small quantity) high in protein just before bedtime. This symptom does not continue after the first three months, except in rare cases.

(3) Dizziness is also one of the early pregnancy symptoms. It is not as common an experience as the above-mentioned ones, yet a majority of pregnant women do get affected. It can be quite harmful and the mother-to-be has to keep a careful watch over herself. She could faint suddenly or even fall and hurt herself. The major cause for this symptom is a falling blood sugar level. Since the baby gets its food via the mother's nutrition, blood sugar levels tend to get affected more quickly in a woman who has conceived than in a woman who has not.

The solution to this is very easy. The new mom has to ensure that she sticks to proper mealtimes and does not skip any. In fact, eating small snacks at regular intervals can prevent this symptom from occurring.

Early pregnancy symptoms are going to be present, whether the mother-to-be likes it or not. Though she cannot wish them away, she can at least make an effort to lessen the impact by following simple guidelines. It would be best to focus on her baby and take good care of herself.
