Signs and Symptoms of Pregnancy[1]

There is a chance you can get pregnant any time you have sex. Every woman has a unique experience with pregnancy symptoms, and even experiences symptoms differently from pregnancy to pregnancy. One of the most common signs you are pregnant is a late or missed period.

You may feel or notice symptoms of pregnancy within a week of getting pregnant. It is also possible you won’t notice the symptoms until a few weeks later.

If you think you could be pregnant, watch for these early signs and symptoms: missed period, headaches, tender breasts, nausea, and lower backaches. Of course, these symptoms don’t always mean you are pregnant, and you could even be pregnant without feeling any of them.                                                 

If you have had sex and are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is important to take a pregnancy test. If that test is positive, you’ll need to make sure the pregnancy is viable with an ultrasound as soon as you can. 

Early Signs and Symptoms of Pregnancy

In addition to a missed period, the earliest symptoms of pregnancy might include:

  • Nausea with or without vomiting.
  • Tender, swollen breasts.
  • Increased urination.
  • Fatigue.
  • Food aversions or cravings.
  • Bloating.

Sometimes symptoms of pregnancy are less familiar or obvious. If you're pregnant, you might also experience:

  • Slight bleeding or cramping.
  • Backaches.
  • Headaches.
  • Mood swings.
  • Dizziness.
  • Constipation.
  • Darkening of the Areolas.

If you are pregnant, you have three choices: You could choose parenting, adoption, or abortion. So many women find it is helpful to talk with someone about all these options. We offer confidential support and accurate information about all pregnancy options. We do not stand to profit in any way from your choice, but we do not offer or refer for abortion services.
