In addition to giving you the maximum feeling of happiness, pregnancy can also give you more typical 2-4 week pregnancy symptoms due to the amazingly increased levels of your hormones. Besides, your kidneys need to work harder than usual to process extra blood.

The pregnancy hormone, Progesterone, is taking control at the moment. You can find more comfort in comfy pants.

Spotting:

You may only get concerned and check your doctor if the bleeding is heavy like period or even heavier and lasts more than two days.
