Regardless of whether your pregnancy was planned or was accidental, the very first issue you need to address before getting a pregnancy calendar will involve confirming your pregnancy. And the only way to go about this task will be by taking a pregnancy test. You can use the various home pregnancy tests available or by visiting a midwives or physician’s office. Once it is confirmed that you are pregnant, use the pregnancy calendar to track your progress in the process.
Not all women will experience the same signs and symptoms. In fact, you may notice that your symptoms vary from pregnancy to the next. In addition, the symptoms are also likely to vary in their duration, frequency, and intensity. When preparing your pregnancy calendar, you need to remember that some of the symptoms you exhibit early on during your pregnancy may also be very similar to the ones that normally appear when you are experiencing pre-menstrual discomforts. However, early symptoms include irritability, mood swings, breast and nipple tenderness, missed periods, fatigue, nausea, and morning sickness, as well as swollen breasts.
It is not uncommon to find a pregnant woman experiencing some light bleeding during her pregnancy. The most important thing to note is that this bleeding will not appear like the “normal” menstrual bleeding. Do not confuse this type of bleeding for your pregnancy. There are women who confuse this for their menstrual bleeding as it normally occurs around the time she is expecting her monthly period. Keep track of any light bleeding or discomfort you begin experiencing on your pregnancy calendar.
Most terms used on articles you have come across online as well as those used by the doctors tend to be medically oriented. To help you get a better definition of each, look for an internet dictionary or a very good dictionary. Ensure you also check out all the infertility terms, pregnancy terms, and their definitions.
A pregnancy calendar is good for many things. One of this being that it helps guide you on what to eat, and what to avoid. Always note that what you consume before and during your pregnancy has the potential to impact the baby’s health. However, what is more important is what you eat, not how much you consume.
If you are trying to get pregnant, you should track your ovulation schedule by creating an ovulation calendar. If you are already pregnant, you should use a pregnancy calendar, so that you can know the exercises to perform during each week, what to eat, what to avoid.
