Signs of Pregnancy and Implantation and What You Can Do Next
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.
(Bonus surprise at the end: a self-acupressure point to support pregnancy!)
A few of the symptoms include:
Feeling similar to before you get your period (crampy/low back pain, PMS)
Increased thirst and urination
Pressure in the low abdomen, twinges
Low back pain
Higher temps in BBT chart
You can also feel nothing.
Nausea/food aversion, but that usually happens later
Fatigue - can also happen later
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
Get plenty of sleep
If you’re not pregnant or you miscarry, Chinese medicine can help you. Preparation is key.
