No Pregnancy Symptoms

During the first weeks of pregnancy it is quite common you may experience no pregnancy symptoms.

In fact, lots of mums-to-be confess during their pregnancy in month one that they only experienced tiredness and sometimes bloating and food cravings, but nothing unusual or different from the signs appearing before their menstrual period.

What Causes No Pregnancy Symptoms?

One of the most common causes of pregnancies taking place with no pregnancy symptoms seems to be the polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).

Lots of women dealing with this condition experience asymptomatic pregnancies or have only mild manifestations such as hunger pangs from time to time, soreness in their breasts and sickness but not as severe as most expecting mums have.

Thus, if you know you're suffering from PCOS yet you get pregnant, the lack of typical manifestations should not take you by surprise neither should make you anxious about your baby's health.

What You Need to Know About No pregnancy Symptoms

No pregnancy symptoms in women who experienced some of the typical manifestations during their first weeks of gestation might signal a miscarriage, so if you suddenly stop having the usual symptoms of pregnancy you should contact your doctor immediately.

While most women know when they suffer a miscarriage as pain in the abdomen is very intense and it's accompanied by bleeding and constant contractions, there are situations when the loss of a pregnancy isn't associated with these manifestations - this usually happens in early pregnancies.

Checking your pregnancy's development regularly can reduce the risk of miscarriage without knowing it.

What to Do If You're Pregnant Yet Have No Pregnancy Symptoms

When you experience no signs of pregnancy during the nine months you may often find yourself scared and anxious about your baby's health and pregnancy's development.

But doctors will ensure that there are no reasons of concern as long as no complications are experienced and checkups are done as scheduled.

Unusual sharp pain, spotting or bleeding, nausea or dizziness should be immediately signalled and your doctor should be alerted, as these signs can announce a more severe condition which can put you and your baby's health in danger.

Be Mindful of Miscarriage

If you did experience signs of pregnancy within your first few weeks, but now don't have any symptoms, this could indicate a miscarriage.

You should contact your doctor right away anytime your pregnancy symptoms suddenly stop.

When you miscarry you'll feel an intense abdominal pain as well as constant contractions and bleeding.

Despite this, sometimes losing a pregnancy won't lead to these manifestations, especially in early pregnancy. To avoid miscarrying without your knowledge, keep tabs on the development of your pregnancy.

Common Signs And Symptoms Of Pregnancy

Each early pregnancy symptom gives indication of your pregnancy.

On the other hand, unusual pregnancy symptoms and sudden changes in pregnancy symptoms may signal you that you might have some complications.

In that case, you should not delay and must see your doctor immediately. Identifying which symptom is normal and which is not, is only possible when you have a clear idea about pregnancy signs and symptoms.

Pregnancy Signs And Symptoms

1. Missed Periods
Many women panic and feel anxious when their periods have crossed due dates. Missed period is a prominent indication of pregnancy. However, a missed period may follow other factors as well, such as certain medications or side effects of medical treatments, stress etc. You should consult your doctor immediately when your period is overdue whether it is an early pregnancy symptom or not.

2. Implantation Bleeding
Right after conceiving, you might notice slight bleeding, which is known as implantation bleeding. As the fertilized egg implants itself to the uterus wall, you may find some vaginal spotting which is normal and a very common early pregnancy symptom.

3. Abdominal Cramping
Many pregnant women complain about cramping pain and contraction in their uterus during periods before pregnancy. This is also considered as a strong indicator of pregnancy.

4. Tender, Swollen Breasts
If you are having sore, swollen and tender breasts, take it seriously and inform your doctor or take a home pregnancy test. You may experience this every month just before your period start.

5. Morning Sickness
