Weird Pregnancy Symptoms

All women know their own bodies better than anyone else and are able to detect some signs that they are pregnant even if they are not the usual ones. Some women have unusual pregnancy symptomsthat others may laugh at or find really weird.

Some symptoms of other medical conditions can also be signs of pregnancy. This can include unusal cramping and pain in the stomach leading a woman to think she has an ulcer or other condition that requires medical attention. In some cases, she may think she has appendicitis
or a bad urinary tract infection and when she does visit the emergency room she is very surprised to learn that she is pregnant.

Women in the first weeks of pregnancy become very emotional over the smallest details. A person who speaks to them in a rough manner may be treated to an outburst of tears or anger. Crying over meaningless events is also a symptom that women don’t realize is possible when they first become pregnant.

Even though it usually develops later in the pregnancy, you may develop cravings for strange food or start to eat foods that you usually didn’t like. This could be a sign that your tastes are changing, but it could also be a sign of pregnancy. You may be hungry all the time and not able to get enough to eat or you may be the exact opposite and not have any appetite for food, even though you don’t feel ill.

The normal signs of pregnancy, such as nausea, tiredness, backache and sore breasts, are based on the high percentage of women who do report these symptoms when they first visit their doctors. This has been true of pregnancy all through the ages, just as it is true that some women never experience these symptoms and not to the same degree. A woman who has had several children will tell you that she had different symptoms on each one of them.
