Completing the first trimester: What's normal and what's not!

There are many changes happening in your body due to changes in hormonal levels. What may seem abnormal would be a common phenomenon while what could feel normal, could turn out to be an uncommon symptom where there is no room for delay during pregnancy.

During this time, if you are experiencing bleeding gums, it's very normal. The hormones are causing the sensitivity and bleeding. Continue brushing and flossing. Don’t stop. If it's making you very uncomfortable, seek your dentist's opinion.

Another thing, which is very normal is drooling in your sleep. More saliva is formed during pregnancy due to hormones.

Mild headaches are very common caused due to hormones again.

With increased blood supply, the delicate vessels in your nose are under a lot of pressure. They rupture easily and cause nosebleeds. There is nothing to be alarmed about as long as there is not too much blood loss. If the blood flow is heavy or the nosebleed does not stop even after 20 minutes of applying pressure on the nose, or you feel tired and dizzy, consult the doctor immediately.

Another symptom is vaginal discharge. This is common and normal as long as it is thick, looks like mucus, and is sticky. The discharge protects your vagina from infection, thereby keeping it healthy. If it's itchy, smells bad, or has a weird colour, consult your doctor.

If you are experiencing severe cramps, spotting that lasts for three or more days, and symptoms of nausea and vomiting for a long time, consult your doctor immediately. Don’t delay.

In case you are experiencing pain while urinating, it could be a urinary tract infection(UTI). Consult your doctor soon.

The right awareness and guidance will lessen your anxiety when you experience an unusual symptom during this time.
