14. Nasal congestion:
Rising hormonal levels and blood production will affect the mucous membranes in the nostrils to swell, dry, and bleed. This will, therefore, lead to a runny or stuffy nose .
15. High basal body temperature:
When you have been actively trying to conceive, you may chart your basal body temperature to check for ovulation. If you find the temperature has remained elevated for more than two weeks from ovulation, it means you are pregnant.
16. Low sexual desire:
The hormonal changes in the body post pregnancy cause a decrease in your sex drive. Various other reasons such as fatigue, stress, medications, or excessive exercise can also sometimes cause a decrease in sexual interest .
You are likely to notice some dark patches on your cheekbones, upper lip, bridge of the nose, and forehead, which can confirm pregnancy. They are known to be pigmentation spots, otherwise called melasma or the Mask of Pregnancy. This occurs due to the over secretion of melanotropin hormone in your body during pregnancy. Sunlight can further worsen the condition. In most cases, the pigmentation lessens post delivery.
18. Dark line of hair on the body:
Sometime around the third month, you will notice a dark line of hair in the front part of your body. It will mostly be a thin line of hair from the pubic bone towards the top of the uterus. If you have been pregnant earlier, the line may appear before pregnancy.
