Think You Might be Pregnant?
There are a number of symptoms associated with pregnancy that could leave you wondering if you are pregnant. Here, we’ll discuss some of those symptoms and how soon after conception they might begin. If you are experiencing two or more of these early pregnancy symptoms, it’s time to come in for no-cost pregnancy testing.
Swollen or 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 such as tenderness to the touch, soreness, or swollenness. Other explanations for swollen or tender breasts include a hormonal imbalance, birth control pills, and impending menstruation (PMS.)
Feeling fatigued or more tired is a pregnancy symptom which can also start as early as the first week after conception.
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. Other explanations for this kind of bleeding include actual menstruation, altered menstruation, changed birth control form, infection, or abrasion from intercourse.
Nausea or Vomiting
Commonly known as morning sickness, nausea or vomiting occurs most often in the first trimester. It can begin as early as two weeks following conception.
A delayed or missed menstruation 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.
Other common early signs of pregnancy include:
- Food cravings or aversions
- Frequent urination
- Mood swings
