Everyone knows the classic signs of pregnancy. You’ve missed your period. Your breasts are tender. And you’re tired all the time.
But pregnant women also experience a whole host of symptoms beyond these first signs. From mucus discharge, to tasting metal, to headaches, expect the unexpected.
Here’s a list of 10 weird early pregnancy symptoms no one tells you about.
1. Weird stuff will come out of you.
While many women experience vaginal discharge, it’s not often associated with pregnancy. But most pregnant women will secrete sticky, white, or pale yellow mucus early on in the first trimester and throughout pregnancy.
Increased hormones and vaginal blood flow cause the discharge. It increases during pregnancy to prevent infections as your cervix and vaginal walls soften. If it starts to smell, burn, itch, turn greenish yellow, or becomes very thick or watery, visit your doctor. You may have an infection.
2. Your body will turn up the heat.
When you first wake up in the morning after ovulation, your body temperature is slightly elevated. It stays that way until you get your next period.
But if this temperature, known as basal body temperature, stays elevated for more than two weeks, you may be pregnant.
3. Your head will hurt, you’ll feel cramps, and you’ll want to pee all the time.
Hormonal and blood volume changes during pregnancy can lead to headaches.
Some women also experience period-like cramps on either side of the lower abdomen. And most women will make extra trips to the restroom. That’s because your growing uterus puts pressure on your bladder.
