Not to mention all the common pregnancy symptoms that one has to go through and be worried if this is normal or not. Well, you don’t have to constantly worry about that anymore. Let’s talk all about the common pregnancy symptoms and how you can handle them in this post briefly.

5 Common pregnancy symptoms and how to handle them:
Nausea and sometimes vomiting:

Almost all women experience nausea with or without vomiting during the first trimester of their pregnancy. But you would be surprised to know that there are women who don’t have this feeling of always wanting to vomit. They are pretty lucky. Researchers have said that nausea and vomiting could be good signs for your pregnancy. It can indicate that your baby (the fetus) is growing healthily. But hey, if you don’t have this common pregnancy symptom, you don’t have to worry about the fetus not being healthy.

How to manage:

You can start by eating small amounts of food more frequently. Divide your food and eat it every couple of hours. It can prevent you from feeling nauseous all the time. You can also try consuming ginger with your tea or however you like. A lot of women have said that this remedy helps them.

Fatigue:

Fatigue is a very common and normal pregnancy symptom that all pregnant women experience. It is okay to feel tired and take naps more often than you usually would. However, if you are getting enough sleep and naps throughout the day and you still feel tired, consult with your doctor.

How to manage:

Like we mentioned, you have no choice but to take naps a little more often. These low energy levels will go away after the first trimester so until then getting enough sleep is a good thing.

Constipation:

Constipation may happen to most women during the second trimester of pregnancy. Your body will be experiencing a lot of hormonal changes throughout pregnancy. So it is pretty common to have constipation as a result of pregnancy. If it gets too uncomfortable you can talk to your doctor to see if they can give you any temporary medication.

How to manage:

You have no choice but to hydrate yourself as much as possible to get rid of this common pregnancy symptom. Eat fibre foods, drink a lot of water and if possible, try fruit-infused water. Consume fruits and veggies that have more water content so you can hydrate your body and satisfy your hunger at the same time.

Round ligament pain:

It may feel scary to experience this common pregnancy symptom for the first time. But keep in mind that you don’t have to be alarmed by this. You may experience slight shooting-like pain in your uterus but it is only because your body is adjusting to the changes.

How to manage:

You can try some comfortable positions or yoga and stretches to get through this pain. But you should consult your doctor before starting anything.

Braxton Hicks contractions:

Braxton hicks contractions are one of the most common pregnancy symptoms that you may experience when you are at the very end of your pregnancy. You may experience slight and sharp pain but you don’t have to worry. Unless it gets too much to bear and it happens more often even after trying everything. In that case, immediately visit your doctor.

How to manage:

It is recommended to drink more water to get through this symptom. Because you can experience contractions more often if your body is dehydrated.
