The two week wait can be nerve-wrecking. You're probably dying to know if you're pregnant!

This video will go over the early signs of pregnancy besides obviously missing your period and getting a positive test.

A few of the symptoms include:

  • Feeling similar to before you get your period (crampy/low back pain, PMS)

  • Increased thirst and urination

  • Feeling warmer

  • Pressure in the low abdomen, twinges

  • Breasts tender/swollen

  • Low back pain

  • Increased appetite

  • Spotting

  • Higher temps in BBT chart

  • You can also feel nothing.

Now you want to STAY pregnant. So what can you do?

  • Keep feet and abdomen warm

  • Eat healthy  - avoid sugar

  • Eat warm and easily digestible foods, like soups and stews

  • Eat daily warm breakfast

  • Eat regular meals

  • Avoid down-bearing exercise, heavy lifting, high impact, excessive sweating. But you CAN move

  • Avoid sex if you’ve miscarried, have spotting
