Pregnancy FAQs

1. What is pregnancy?

Pregnancy is a condition in which a woman carries a fertilized egg inside her body, the term pregnancy refers to the period from conception to birth. Pregnancy usually lasts 40 weeks and is divided into three trimesters, each lasting approximately three months.

2. Signs of pregnancy

In the early stages of pregnancy, the first few weeks, things start changing fast. The early signs of pregnancy will include a missed period and could also include symptoms such as nausea and sickness, fatigue, slight bleeding/spotting or cramping and tender breasts. If your menstrual cycle is regular and patterned you may suspect you are pregnant as soon as you notice you have missed a period or it is late, however, this may not always be the case, periods can be late or missed due to stress, illness, weight, medication and the menopause. A test should be done to confirm.

3. Symptoms of pregnancy

During the weeks of pregnancy symptoms change and the symptoms experienced will depend on which trimester/stage you are in. Some of the symptoms experienced include: nausea and sickness, loss of appetite/going off particular foods, cravings, breast tenderness, breast enlargement, fatigue, frequent urination, constipation, spotting, vaginal discharge, enlarged abdomen, skin/pigmentation changes, stretch marks, colostrum (first milk produced) from breasts, changes in libido, stomach pains, movements and braxton hicks contractions.

4. Am I pregnant?

If you have missed a period or it is late, or you simply suspect you may be pregnant then the best way to find out is to do a pregnancy test, this can provide an accurate result quickly. Depending on how far you think you may be, which can be estimated from your last menstrual period, take a look at our early pregnancy signs and symptoms section above and see if any sound familiar, if you are still unsure see your GP or pharmacist.

5. How can I get pregnant?
