Earliest Pregnancy Symptoms Before a Missed Period

Find out the earliest pregnancy symptoms before a missed period, some even as early as a few days after conception.

When most women think about pregnancy symptoms, that telltale missed period is usually at the top of the list. But, did you know that there are several pregnancy symptoms that sometimes show up even before that missed period, and some even as early as a few days after conception? If you are having a hard time waiting to see if your period is late or right on time, here are a few early pregnancy symptoms that you can be on the lookout for.

Elevated BBT

Ah, the good old basal body temperature again! If you have been charting and tracking your BBT, this one should be a no brainer for you! When a fertilized egg is implanted, your BBT goes up and stays up from anywhere between one half of a degree and one whole degree. If you are already charting your basal body temperature (you will need a special thermometer for this), you should be able to notice this tiny little change in temp quite easily. It is usually one of the very first signs of pregnancy, and can happen as quickly as two days after you ovulate. So, ladies, get to tracking!

Cramps

Most ladies think this is just PMS, a few cramps here and there. While you might be anticipating your period coming in just a few days, that is not always the case. When the embryo implants itself in the uterus, it can actually cause menstrual-like cramping in many women! You might also notice some PMS-like bloating related to the rise of progesterone and estrogen in your body. Keep in mind that there can even be some implantation bleeding 8-10 days after ovulation, so you might really think that you are getting your period! So, when you are experiencing what seems like normal PMS symptoms, keep in mind that it could be those tricky old early pregnancy symptoms after all.

Breast changes

Changes in the breasts are usually one of the first things that women notice as a sign of pregnancy. You might notice your breasts becoming bigger or more tender. Another early sign is changes that might take place around the nipple area. You will notice your nipples becoming much more tender, and the areola around the nipple will become larger and darker. You can notice these changes in your breasts before your missed period.

Fatigue

Fatigue is usually one of the earliest pregnancy symptoms, but most women don’t even notice it. I mean, really, who isn’t tired these days? But early pregnancy fatigue goes beyond being just “tired”. You might not be able to stay up past 7 pm, or maybe you fall asleep watching your favorite soap opera in the middle of the afternoon. Pregnancy hormones, especially early pregnancy hormones, can really take a serious toll on your body. So, don’t brush it off as just being tired… Fatigue is definitely one of the most common early pregnancy symptoms.

    Hi LindseyHines I have had one of my tubes removed and I was told a 50/50 chance of getting pregnant, since then I have had 5 kids. So it is very possible to have children. Be positive and it will happen, my prayers and thoughts are with you ?

    I made my boyfriend cum and he went to the bath and wiped it off but I don’t think washed his hands and then fingered me. I think I’m having pregnancy symptoms but I don’t know if I’m just paranoid. My period is suppose to start in a week. Should I wait and see if I miss it or what? I heard speed can’t live in air so would there hand been any on his hand in that case? Please help I don’t want to be pregnant!

    Good Day!
    I had essure done about 10 yrs ago, however about 3 years ago one of the coils got removed. My husband And I always have unprotected sex and last month I had a very faint period, this month I am about 3 days late my breasts have been uncomfortably sore for the past 2 weeks and Yesterday I had a very small streak of blood in some vaginal discharge while cleaning myself after going to the RR. I was wondering If it’s possible that I could have conceived?

    I came off of the pill almost 4 months ago. I was high fertile on June 7th, and Ovulated on the 8th. My significant other and I had intercourse on the 3rd, 5th, 6th and 8th. What are my chances of being pregnant? I feel like I have cramps now and then and I am constantly tired. When is the earliest I can test? My next scheduled period is June 22nd

    So stupid question since I already have one child but I started my period September 23rd and ended the 29th. My husband and I have had sex just about everyday since my period ended, I am currently on day 15 of my cycle and was wondering if it’s possible for me to be feeling pregnancy symptoms this early if I’m pregnant?
