Every woman wants to get pregnant all she cares about is to know whether she is pregnant or not and seeks for any thing that proves her pregnancy .
All gynecologists confirm that when the ovum reaches the fallopian tube it waits for 24 hrs till the sperm fertilize it , and when fertilization is done the ovum takes 3 or 4 days till it reaches the womb where the pregnancy hormone is already found in the blood but it doesn’t appear on the pregnancy test until the woman is having her monthly cycle and if she didn’t have it in its expected time then it is the first pregnancy symptom .
Also the pregnant woman can know via some attention her being pregnant after the fertilization process directly through some signs and changes she can feel as :
- pain in the breasts
If you are pregnant you will feel some pain in your breasts with their swelling and this region becomes very sensitive especially the nipples and that is a strong evidence which proves that you are pregnant and if it is your first pregnancy you will notice blue lines on your breasts and the appearance of dark colour around your nipples may mean that the fertilization process has succeeded and it might be related to hormonal imbalance which has nothing to do with pregnancy .
Which means strong pain and cramps below your stomach and it is repetitive in the start of the pregnancy .
