Here are the 4 Weirdest Early Pregnancy Signs
1. You Taste Metal
There is a condition called dysgeusia that has some pregnant women tasting metal. The increases in estrogen and progesterone during pregnancy can lead to changes in taste.
2. Your Chest Burns
It’s hormones again. The valve between your stomach and esophagus becomes relaxed during pregnancy, which can cause stomach acid causing heartburn.
3. You Feel Dizzy
Is the room spinning? Do you feel lightheaded? Your blood pressure can drop during pregnancy and cause and blood vessels to dilate.
Note: Severe dizziness, vaginal bleeding, and severe abdominal pain could be a sign of ectopic pregnancy; an ultrasound can rule out if you have an ectopic pregnancy.
