The 2WW Pregnancy Symptoms

In case you don't know, the two week wait is the two week period of time in between ovulation (when you have sex and try to get pregnant), and your period, or hopefully lack therof (when you can take a pregnancy test and see if you are pregnant!)

The two week wait can be a killer for women who are trying to get pregnant. In case you don’t know, the two week wait is the two week period of time in between ovulation (when you have sex and try to get pregnant), and your period, or hopefully lack therof (when you can take a pregnancy test and see if you are pregnant!) During this two week wait, many women worry and wonder whether or not they are pregnant, and some even report noticing pregnancy symptoms during the two week wait! Read on for some of the most commonly reported pregnancy symptoms during the two week wait! Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

Tender Breasts

One of the most common complaints during the two week wait are tender breasts. Sore nipples are also commonly reported by women during the two week wait. While tender breasts and sore nipples are often one of the first noted pregnancy symptoms, some women simply mistake premenstrual breast tenderness for pregnancy breast tenderness. However, watch for darkening of the areolas, or the skin around the nipples. This is a sure sign of pregnancy!


Headaches are a big one during early pregnancy, and they can show up as early as the two week wait. This is a toughie, though, since many women experience headaches quite often. It can be hard to determine what is a regular, run of the mill headache and what is a pregnancy headache.


Feeling extra gassy, having mild to severe abdominal cramps, or suffering with a backache are also early pregnancy signs that can make an appearance during the two week wait. However, these symptoms are also notable for being run of the mill PMS symptoms, so don’t read TOO much into them.


If you are pregnant, one of the very first symptoms that you are likely to notice is nausea, also known as morning sickness. Morning sickness can occur anytime during the day, not just in the morning, so keep that in mind. If you are experiencing nausea during the two week wait, you just might be pregnant!


We live in a world where we are all exhausted, and no one gets enough sleep. However, the fatigue of early pregnancy is usually much more severe than the drain that everyday life takes on us. If you are experiencing extreme fatigue, and feeling really rundown during your two week wait, it may mean that a baby is on the way!

Frequent Urination

Running to the bathroom every five minutes? Could it be that you are pregnant? It could! While frequent urination is most often associated with mid to late pregnancy, it could strike as early as the two week wait, so pay attention to your bathroom trips!

Implantation Bleeding

This one can be a telltale sign of early pregnancy, but some women mistakenly think that they have started their periods! Implantation bleeding can occur as pink or light brown spotting and it can happen as early as 6 to 14 days after ovulation. There is usually not much blood, but some women pass it off as thinking their period has arrived early, when it is really a HUGE sign that you are in fact, pregnant!

    HELP 🙂
    i am 28 and I have not had a period for 6 months since going off Birth control pill. I took several HPT during these months but last week I had blood work done to have my hormone levels checked and my doc said that my estrogen levels were quite high and that it could possibly mean I’m pregnant She advised i take another test and in the past 5 days I have taken 3 tests all saying negative. Is high estrogen usually a pretty clear indication you are pregnant? How long should I wait to test again ? What else could cause such high estrogen ? Thanks!!!!
