Caught yourself googling ‘signs of maternity’? That you understand exactly what to look out for, we asked midwife Claire to provide us the inside story on the early signs of maternity, from the noticeable to the, truthfully, pretty odd.
While some maternity signs and symptoms are piece of cakes (missed out on duration, any person?) we’re ready to wager there are a few that you won’t have understood about. Why not see the number of you can check off?
While there’s the classic missed duration hint, there are also lots of other enjoyable ones that you could miss or just write off as something else. Implantation bleeding, implantation discomfort, a sore back, exhaustion and being exceedingly dehydrated are all early indications of pregnancy but could nearly all be quickly be misinterpreted for indications of your period arriving.
What signs and symptom initially tipped you off when you dropped expecting? We would certainly love to read about your experiences in the comments below.
