5. Vomiting and nausea
Early pregnancy symptoms such as nausea and vomiting are possible. Morning sickness, often known as pregnancy nausea and vomiting, usually begins between the second and eighth weeks of pregnancy. Nausea does not occur only in the morning; many women have nausea throughout the day or into the evening. It’s a good idea to take a pregnancy test if a woman feels queasy for no apparent cause, especially if there are other indicators of pregnancy.
Fatigue is a frequent early pregnancy symptom. There may be no other obvious causes, such as stress or sleep deprivation. A pregnant woman may find it difficult to get through the day without a sleep or the opportunity to rest. Changes in the hormone progesterone are frequently the cause of fatigue during early pregnancy. Starting in the second trimester, the fatigue normally subsides, and pregnant women may notice that they have greater energy.
