Pregnancy symptoms can appear even in those who avoid pregnancy such as using contraceptives or condoms, which are completely unavoidable.  But Wait! First Things First.

Common Pregnancy Symptoms

Missed Periods

The most common and obvious sign of pregnancy is a missed period. Once conception has happened, your body produces hormones that stop ovulation and the shedding of the lining of your uterus.

But missing your period isn’t always a sign of pregnancy. You can also miss your period from stress, excessive exercise, dieting, hormone imbalances and other factors that might cause irregular periods.

Breast Tenderness

Another early symptom of pregnancy you can watch out for is tender breasts. If you don’t get your period and notice that your breasts are sore or more tender than usual, this could be an indication that you’re pregnant.

The tingling sensation can often be confused for the feeling of pins and needles, but if you’re experiencing both simultaneously and then notice that your breasts are tender to touch, it’s worth having a pregnancy test.

Pro Tip!

  • A comfortable, supportive, underwire-free maternity bra may help relieve breast tenderness.
  • A bra with varying clasps can give you room to “grow” in the coming months.
  • Breast pads that fit into your bra can reduce friction and nipple pain.

Smell Sensitivity

Morning Sickness

Not 

Pro Tip

  • Keep a package of saltine crackers by your bed and eat a few before you get up in the morning to help settle morning sickness.
  • Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water.

Nausea & Vomiting

Not everyone woman experiences nausea while pregnant. Nausea is quite normal during pregnancy, but it can be a problem if you’re frequently dehydrated. Some women experience it and causes vomiting while others don’t.  

Pregnant women who suffer from a condition called hyperemesis gravidarum may be unable to keep food or fluids down due to extreme nausea. 

Frequent Urination

This happens because the blood volume is greater than before. During pregnancy, the body’s blood supply increases. The kidneys filter blood and remove excess waste products. This waste is excreted from the body as urine. As the amount of blood in your body increases, the amount of urine you produce also increases.

Pro Tip

  • Drink about 300 milliliters (a little more than a cup) of extra fluids each day.
  • Plan out your bathroom trips ahead of time to avoid leaking urine.

There are some common signs and symptoms to look out for during the first few weeks after conception. From fatigue to sore breasts to even spotting, there are plenty of signs that you might be pregnant even before your period is late or you take a home test.

  • Morning sickness 

You may also experience morning sickness as a symptom. Morning sickness usually starts about six weeks after conception and doesn’t typically last longer than the first trimester of pregnancy.

  • Nausea and vomiting

Around the world, one in four pregnant women will experience nausea and vomiting. Usually, these symptoms occur from around three to nine weeks into pregnancy. Nausea and vomiting can be caused by different reasons: hormonal changes, food sensitivities or aversions, increased sensitivity to smell or touch sensations, or a digestive disorder.

  • Fatigue

Pregnant women often experience fatigue during the first weeks of pregnancy as a result of hormonal changes. Fatigue may also be caused by anemia and not getting enough sleep, which can happen if you’re experiencing morning sickness.

  • Bloating

One of the most common early pregnancy symptoms is bloating, which can occur in the first few weeks. It is usually caused by a higher level of progesterone and estrogen in your body, which causes fluid retention. To help alleviate and reduce the effect of bloating, try to drink plenty of water and eat foods high in fiber like whole grains

  • Mood swings

As early pregnancy symptoms, mood swings can be attributed to many different things. One of the most common reasons for mood changes in pregnant women is the hormones their body is producing. In early pregnancy, progesterone levels are high and this hormone can affect a woman’s emotional stability and cause her to feel irritable or depressed, while estrogen levels increase around the middle of pregnancy and often lead to feelings of well-being.

Can I have the Pregnancy symptoms and not be pregnant?

Many of the symptoms of early pregnancy overlap with other medical conditions as well as the normal menstrual cycle. Premenstrual symptoms can be very similar to those of pregnancy. Breastfeeding can also cause irregular periods. 

This can make it difficult to tell the difference. 

Even if you haven’t had your period, you may not be pregnant. This can occur if you lose or gain a lot of weight or if you feel stressed. Breastfeeding can also delay your period.

Many of these signs and symptoms aren’t unique to pregnancy. Some can indicate that you’re getting sick or that your period is about to start. Likewise, you can be pregnant without experiencing many of these symptoms.

Still, if you miss a period and notice some of the above signs or symptoms, take a home pregnancy test or see your health care provider. If your home pregnancy test is positive, make an appointment with your health care provider. The sooner your pregnancy is confirmed, the sooner you can begin prenatal care.

 

If you’re planning to conceive or just learned you’re pregnant, start taking a daily prenatal vitamin. Prenatal vitamins typically contain important vitamins and minerals, such as folic acid and iron, to support your baby’s growth and development.

Take some time to consider your options. Not being ready to parent is totally understandable. You might be still in school, maybe it was a fling or maybe the relationship is toxic whatever the reason might be you alone can make the final decision. 

How soon can I use a pregnancy test?

Pregnancy tests work by detecting a certain level of human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG) in your pee. You can take a pregnancy test as soon as you’ve missed your period. However, it’s best to wait at least one week after you’ve missed your period to get the most accurate results. While some tests claim to give you accurate results before a missed period, taking a test too soon can result in a false negative (the test says you aren’t pregnant, but you are).

How to make the right decision

If you’ve missed your period and gotten a positive pregnancy test, your next step will be to call your healthcare provider for your first appointment. While scheduling, your provider may ask if you have already started taking a prenatal vitamin containing folic acid. Prenatal vitamins are important in early pregnancy because they help in the development of the fetal neural tube. The neural tube will become your baby’s brain and spine. Many healthcare providers recommend that anyone who could become pregnant take folic acid at all times.

If you’re planning a pregnancy, a preconception appointment with your healthcare provider is a good place to start. A preconception appointment is especially important if you take medication for a chronic illness or have other medical conditions like diabeteshigh blood pressure or lupus.

During this appointment, your provider will discuss any current medical conditions, as well as your general health before pregnancy. This appointment is meant to get you into the best place for a new pregnancy.
