“Am I pregnant?” Don’t worry; you could be if you had unprotected sex during ovulation. And you don’t even have to wait until you miss a period to tell if you are pregnant or not because you are likely to notice a few body changes 6 days after ovulation that could indicate early pregnancy.
Am I Pregnant? Look Out For Implantation Bleeding
If you are lucky, you might notice some blood in your panties 6-12 days after you ovulated. This is the earliest sign of pregnancy and is known as implantation bleeding. It happens when your fertilized egg is attaching itself in your uterus and might be accompanied by some cramps or abdominal pains. It is nothing to worry about unless it gets as heavy as a normal period.
Am I Pregnant? Look Out For Frequent Headaches and Nausea
Frequent headaches that might be accompanied by nausea can also be an early sign of pregnancy. If you notice that you are experiencing frequent headaches which are not a usual occurrence, they could be a pregnancy sign that is being caused by hormonal changes. If you also notice that you have nausea on a frequent basis and you are sure that you had unprotected sex around the middle of your cycle, you could be pregnant.
Am I Pregnant? Dizziness or Lightheadedness
Have you been feeling dizzy or off balance of late? It is normal for a woman’s blood pressure to fall a little lower during early pregnancy and this usually causes dizziness and/or lightheadedness. This is, however, not a guaranteed pregnancy symptom and could very well be caused by something else entirely. Look out for other pregnancy symptoms before you start suspecting early pregnancy.
Am I Pregnant? Fatigue, Sleepiness and Moodiness
Most women start searching Google for “am I pregnant?” as soon as they notice that they are suddenly feeling sleepy and exhausted all day. While this is not always a sign of pregnancy, it could be if have also been feeling moody and are sure that you had unprotected sex during your fertile days (ovulation time). These symptoms are believed to be caused by hormonal imbalances.
Am I Pregnant? Food Cravings, Stronger Sense Of Smell
Have you discovered that you have been craving foods that you don’t usually eat? Some newly-pregnant women crave sugary or sweet things, while others suddenly find the smell of soil or chalk pleasant. Other than food cravings, you might notice that you now loathe some foods that were once great favorites, such as eggs and fish. These pregnancy signs are in most cases accompanied by an elevated sense of smell.
Whether you have been experiencing some or all of the abovementioned symptoms, you will eventually have to perform a pregnancy test, whether at home or at the doctor’s office. If it turns out that you are not pregnant after all, wait for your next ovulation and you might just get pregnant then.
