How Soon Do Signs Of Pregnancy Start?

How soon can you start seeing signs and symptoms that you are pregnant? From as early as a week past conception, find out about how soon the signs of pregnancy begin.

If you are trying to get pregnant, you might be wondering just how soon you can start seeing signs and symptoms that might give you a clue that you are, in fact, expecting. The answer may surprise you! Did you know that you can start seeing some signs of pregnancy within a week of conception!? That is super fast! Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

6-12 days past ovulation (DPO)

One of the first signs is implantation bleeding, which sometimes occurs when the fertilized egg attaches to the uterine wall. This can occur within 6-12 days of conception, although a lot of times women may think that the implantation bleeding is actually their period. This is the reason that many women do not recognize implantation bleeding as a pregnancy symptom.

Two weeks after conception

At around two weeks after conception, this is where a lot of the other signs and symptoms of pregnancy start being noticeable. Fatigue usually begins to set in around the two week mark, since the body is so busy releasing hormones and working hard on growing a baby. Many women may think they are just overdoing it at work or at home (who doesn’t work too hard these days?), or may think they are coming down with a cold, and just feeling a little bit under the weather. This fatigue may very well be one of the first signs of pregnancy. Also in the first few weeks after conception, the woman might notice other symptoms such as mild cramping, bloating, backaches, or breast tenderness and soreness. However, these symptoms are often attributed to PMS or an upcoming period, so sometimes they are not seen as pregnancy symptoms right off the bat!

Three to four weeks after conception

At around three to four weeks after conception, more obvious pregnancy symptoms should start to show up. The area around a woman’s nipples should be getting darker and increasing in size. She might be experiencing some nausea (which could be morning sickness) or queasiness. Her sense of smell might begin to be altered, and she could be having aversions to some foods or smells. Headaches, dizziness or even fainting spells might occur at around this time, due to increased blood circulation and increasing hormones. She might even begin to gain a little weight, and her bras might start to become a bit tighter. Somewhere around this time, the telltale missed period should show up (or, not show up!), and it should begin to become a bit more obvious that a woman could be pregnant. Once the time for her to start her period has come and gone, a woman should be able to get a accurate result from an at home pregnancy test.

    I’m 17 and had sex twice last month. My period was 11 days late but I took two pregnancy tests and they were both negative. After the 11 days I thought I had my period but this month it’s late again. This time my period is 12 days late. I always have my period every month. Is it just stress, hormones, or could I be pregnant? I went to the doctor for birth control check and she did tests and she said she checked for pregnancy along with everything else but she said everything looked good. Could I be pregnant or what could be wrong?
