What are The Symptoms of The Fertilization of an Egg?
A fertilized egg can make its presence felt in many ways. Some women notice the changes almost immediately, while others do not feel any different until well after implantation has occurred.
There are a number of early signs to look out for after ovulation. These include light spotting around the time when your period would normally start, which is known as implantation bleeding.
This is thought to occur when tiny blood vessels break down under the influence of pregnancy hormones at the site where the embryo implants into the uterus wall. If you experience this, then it will be necessary to test for pregnancy straight away.
Although only about 20% of pregnant women notice any sort of symptom during this time, 80%, experience one or more definite indications that there is a new life growing inside them.
1) Implantation bleeding :
A small amount of bleeding or spotting can occur as the fertilized egg attaches to the wall of a woman’s uterus during week three of pregnancy.
This is a very common early sign of pregnancy and occurs in 20-30% of pregnancies. It typically occurs six to twelve days after conception, which would be around five to seven weeks from your last period.
However, implantation may not happen for several days or even up to about two weeks after ovulation, so it could be later than that when you notice some spotting. In general, implantation bleeding tends to be lighter and less painful than a normal menstrual period with brown spotting or pinkish/red blood appearing instead of the usual bright red of menstrual blood. The spotting may be very light and can last for one or two days at the most, but implantation bleeding should not last more than a day or two.
If you are trying to get pregnant then it is best that you try to conceive during the time when this type of bleeding is most likely to occur (which is also when ovulation occurs). If you notice any signs of implantation bleeding (light spotting/brown discharge) around 6-12 days after ovulation, this could indicate that conception has occurred.
2) Implantation cramping :
Some women experience some pain in their lower abdomen area, similar to having really bad period cramps, especially on one side. This type of pain is related to the fertilized egg attaching itself to the wall of a woman’s uterus, which can cause some discomfort. This is a natural process and does not mean that you have an infection or disease, so don’t worry.
Pain is normal as the fertilized egg attaches itself to your uterus but those who experience any severe pain or cramping after they expect their period should consult their doctor as implantation cramping can be a sign of something more serious such as ectopic pregnancy. In fact, untreated ectopic pregnancies can lead to loss of fertility or even death if left untreated.
3) Implantation spotting :
Light spotting around six to twelve days after ovulation is considered normal in early pregnancy, with most women experiencing this symptom at some point during their pregnancies. Some women, however, don’t experience any spotting at all when they conceive; this is not unusual.
Spotting in early pregnancy can be caused by implantation of the fertilized egg into the uterus lining (when the embryo attaches itself to your uterine wall) or when the placenta begins to form (the structure that feeds and takes care of the developing fetus).
4) Tender breasts:
Your body will start preparing for breastfeeding as soon as an egg has been fertilized. This means that your breasts may become tender and slightly larger than usual because they are getting ready for milk production to begin once you give birth. However, if your breasts are throbbing or painful instead of just sore then it may be a sign of something more serious, so see your doctor.
5) Morning sickness :
This is a very common symptom experienced by women during the first trimester of pregnancy. Nausea and vomiting can begin almost right away or as late as week sixteen—it all depends on the woman’s hormones, placenta development, and the growing embryo itself.
Thankfully morning sickness tends to go away during weeks thirteen through twenty-four of pregnancy. However, if you experience any severe nausea or diarrhea then it may be a sign that something is wrong with your baby or with your health in general, so talk to your doctor immediately.
Your body will release certain hormones after getting pregnant in order to prepare for breastfeeding and cellular division. This means that you may feel more tired than usual, especially as the embryo develops and your body goes into overdrive trying to provide it with everything it needs such as blood, nutrients, and oxygen.
Just be sure not to confuse fatigue with low iron; if you’re anemic then you will experience extreme fatigue because your body won’t have enough healthy red blood cells in order to function properly.
7) Faint pregnancy symptoms :
Some women don’t notice their pregnancies until they faint or half-pass out for no apparent reason at all; this is called a syncope reaction and it occurs because of sudden blood pressure drops (which can occur during hormonal changes). To avoid fainting pregnant women should stand up slowly after lying down or sitting down, then gradually resume their everyday tasks.
8) Constipation :
Pregnancy constipation results from hormonal changes and the pressure that the growing fetus places on your digestive tract, so it’s normal to have issues going number two during pregnancy. However, if you experience severe constipation or diarrhea because of bacterial infection then talk to your doctor immediately as this can lead to dehydration and other serious health problems.
Swelling in the limbs (especially in the ankles), backaches, heartburns, nausea—all of these are signs that your body is working pretty hard right now even though you don’t see any physical evidence of it on the outside; so be sure not wear your heart on your sleeve while you’re expecting!
10) Lighter periods:
On the bright side of things, you may also get lighter periods while you’re pregnant; this does not mean that your menstrual cycle has stopped completely though. Some women will get their period for the first time while they are already pregnant (this is called menarche). You’ll know what’s going on if one day you realize that you haven’t gotten your regular monthly visitor in over three months.
11) Menstrual cramps :
Another thing to keep an eye out for during pregnancy is whether or not your menstrual cramps go away. If your cramps stop then it could be a sign of miscarriage or premature birth so talk to your doctor right away about any changes in menstruation patterns.
12) Hemorrhoids :
Swollen veins or veins that look a little out of place could be a sign of hemorrhoids, another common pregnancy symptom. If the area under your tailbone gets itchy and tender then you have hemorrhoids which are caused by being pregnant and straining yourself to poop, among other things. Hemorrhoids can also lead to more serious issues so see your doctor if the pain becomes an issue in this area.
13) Food cravings:
During pregnancy, women tend to crave foods they would never even think about eating before getting pregnant, so try not to judge them for their strange food requests! For instance, some ladies crave pickles while others just want something sweet like chocolate or ice cream when they’re expecting.
14) Food aversions :
While some pregnant women have the opposite problem and are nauseated by foods that they previously enjoyed, others will have weird reactions to certain cuisines. If you’ve never had an issue with Brussels sprouts before but whenever your partner makes them for dinner you start gagging then it could be because of your pregnancy.
15) Increase in breast size:
It is possible for your breasts to stay the same size or increase in size when you get pregnant, so don’t freak out if one day you notice that your favorite bra doesn’t fit anymore; sometimes this can happen gradually over time though so pay attention to any changes.
