Christina Applegate and her pregnancy symptoms

Christina Applegate said it took her some time to get used to being pregnant and she had all the symptoms!

“The cravings … the morning sickness, I had for a really long time, the psychosis. The morning sickness is so bad, Oh, my God!”

The actress has been known to say that her pregnancy made her “a little cuckoo.”  Her mood swings were noticeable.

“It’s almost out of body,” she went on. “You’re stepping back from yourself and you’re watching this insane monster in front of you that’s you. And you want to stop her, but she is kind of fun to watch. That’s sort of what’s been happening.”

Miranda Kerr had morning sickness when she was pregnant with Orlando Bloom’s baby.

“I remember on one occasion in the early days [of my pregnancy] when it was still too soon to say anything, and I had a dreadful time at one job,” she says, recalling morning sickness during the first trimester.

What are the common pregnancy symptoms?

Implantation Bleeding:

Implantation bleeding can be one of the earliest pregnancy symptoms. About 6-12 days after conception, the embryo implants itself into the uterine wall. Some women will experience spotting as well as some cramping.

Delay/Difference in Menstruation:

A delayed or missed period is the most common pregnancy symptom leading a woman to test for pregnancy. When you become pregnant, your next period should be missed. Many women can bleed while they are pregnant, but typically the bleeding will be shorter or lighter than a normal period.

Swollen/Tender Breasts:

Swollen or tender breasts is a pregnancy symptom which may begin as early as 1-2 weeks after conception. Women may notice changes in their breasts; they may be tender to the touch, sore, or swollen.

Fatigue/Tiredness:

Feeling fatigued or more tired is a pregnancy symptom which can also start as early as the first

Nausea/Morning Sickness:

This well known pregnancy symptom will often show up between 2-8 weeks after conception. Some women are fortunate to not deal with morning sickness at all, while others will feel nauseous throughout most of their pregnancy.

Backaches:

Lower backaches may be a symptom that occurs early in pregnancy; however, it is common to experience a dull backache throughout pregnancy.

Headaches:

The sudden rise of hormones in your body can cause you to have headaches early in pregnancy.

Frequent Urination:

Around 6-8 weeks after conception, you may find yourself making a few extra trips to the bathroom.

Food Cravings or Food Aversions:

While you may not have a strong desire to eat pickles and ice cream, many women will feel cravings for certain foods when they are pregnant. This can last throughout your entire pregnancy. Some women develop adversions to certain types of food early in pregnancy and this too can last for the next 9 months.
