You may have an inkling that you’re pregnant soon after you’ve conceived when the fertilised egg attaches itself to the wall of your uterus (womb). This usually happens within about 10 days of conception.
Or you may be unaware of any changes for weeks, only wondering if you’re pregnant when you miss a period.
I wanted to get deeper with this post. I wanted to escape from the usual signs like vomiting, period, and often urination.
Let’s cut to the chase and take a look at these “you are probably pregnant” signs.
Increased Estrogen and Progesterone Levels
These two hormones will decrease or stop the menstrual bleedings.
Vomiting Does Not Only Happen in the Mornings
Oh yeah. This is probably the main reason why people confuse morning sickness with a stomach bug or food poisoning.
Being pregnant means slower digestion.
Swollen and Sensitive Vagina
The levels of cervical mucus you produce are thicker, and the result is a very sensitive vagina. All of this comes as a result of increased progesterone levels.
Increased Breast Size
You thought your breasts get swollen when you are in your period? – Wait until you see what happens when you are expecting.
The nipples get darker as they prepare for nursing your baby.
The hormones inside of you make your breasts sensitive and bigger.
If you were dreaming for larger breasts, they would continue growing through the pregnancy.
Menstrual Cramps Outside your Period Dates
However, you can take some preventative measures which can help you lower the risk of a heart attack:
- Eat healthy foods
You should focus on fruits and vegetables, especially garlic, as it lowers blood pressure. Also, the increased risk of a heart attack is often linked to inflammation, so you should also consume Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, which has potent anti-inflammatory properties which lower the accumulation of plaque in the arteries.
- Reduce the Sugar intake
The excessive consumption of sugar negatively affects the body, reduces good cholesterol and increases triglycerides, thus raising the chances of experiencing a heart attack.
- Take Supplements
To dilate the arteries, and help the flow of blood, you should take fish oil. Also, vitamin C prevents damage of the arteries, while vitamin K protects against calcification (hardening of the arteries), which might be another cause of a heart attack.
The strenuous daily activity might raise the risk of a heart attack, but moderate exercise reduces the risk of heart attack.
Yet, always remember not to wait in case you suspect you are having a heart attack. Instead, you should immediately call 911 and get to a hospital. The following video gives more information about heart attacks in women:
