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?

    Yes you can it’s basically the guys sperm but much clearer and no girl thinks it is , but it is , that’s another way to get pregnant , if you and your partner have sex and you see it , and you don’t wanna get pregnant you should clean it before putting the tip in at least but if you do then that’s one way to get pregnant or if he just ejaculates in you . Your welcome . Btw my name is Esmeralda and I’m sharing a Facebook with my guy best friend so yeah lol sorry

    Hello! I missed my period for October, I also have been feeling very early signs of pregnancy, however, every hpt I have taken, has shown a negative, except for the last one. Of course it was a blue dye test, however, I tossed it before waiting the 2-10 mins, so I don’t know if it was in fact a positive. I’ve heard about the evaporation line, but the positive line was definitely blue. I did make an appointment with my obgyn, which is tomorrow. Buy a little insight would be great.

    OK so I was ovulating around 6-8 of Nov. My calendar says on the 7th. Me and my husband used pressed couple of times each of those days. On the 12th 6 dpo I was at work and started having cramps. I noticed I was spotting. But it was very light and that night it turned brown. Then completely gone. That whole week up until now I have been sleeping like my life depended on it. I have been diagnosed with insomnia. So for my body to let me sleep past four hours is unheard of. I been sleeping at least 15+ hours ever since I had sex. I have been extremely nauseous and dizzy. I been craving pies lol. I don’t even like sweets. My period was due today but I keep testing negative hpt. I have two daughters already and normally find out about 6 weeks. But I wasn’t as in tuned with my body as I am now. So idk what’s is really going on. Any idea?

    Hi dear…I am 29yrs old of African descent and I have abnormal periods. Last May I had a miscarriage (of which I had no clue) and I haven’t had a menstruation since. About 3wks now I noticed my breast have grown, nipples are tender to touch and slight fever around that area. What does this means or what should I do?

He has no kids and i really want another kifld. My periods are irregular and he aperm count isnt high. I feel like i have failed as a woman and he feels he cant give me a child.

I went to the emergency room and she said it wa normal. So i went home. Since then ive been sick. Like i have to flu. I took 1 test it was negative. But now ive gained 7lbs and i havent eaten alot. So could i be pregnent or my hormones out of wack. Could we conconcieve again?

    Hi, im a bit curious and also a bit worried. So about three months ago some where in between periods me and my fiancé had a condom break on us. When it was time for my period i missed it but about three days later i had what i concidered a short period (3 days) by the next month when it was time for my period again i missed it and took a home pregnancy test (took a few before that too) and it came out negative. I still waited another 2 weeks to take another one and it continued to come out negative. When it was time for my period again (a few days ago) i still didnt get it. And i feel all the period symtoms. However, my pregnancy test still come out negative. Is there still a posibility i am forsure pregnant? Or perhaps its something i should be concerned about?

    Is there a way you can feel pregnant? My period last month was much shorter and lighter. Now for the last week or so my stomach feels different. Tight and if I eat it feels really full and bloated. I already have two kids and some of the pains feel similar to when I had them. I’m tired all the time. And my syatic nerve is bugging me. It o ly has ever bugged me while I was pregnant.
