Small brown leaks

They can show up between 4 and XNUMX weeks. They are called plant losses and are caused by the implantation of the embryo in the uterus. Of course, seeing that you have leaks can create anxiety and worry, but generally if it occurs 10-14 days after conception, these leaks are the signal that the embryo has implanted itself in the uterine walls. Often some women attribute these slight losses to a light and somewhat abnormal menstrual cycle, because they do not yet know they are pregnant.



Nausea in the morning

Nausea occurs increasingly in the first trimester. This is a good sign because nausea is essentially caused by the increase in blood ormoni beta Hcg, the hormones that promote the development of pregnancy.

  • Different sensitivity to smells and tastes
  • Tendency to urinate more often
