Pregnancy Signs and Symptoms | Most Common Early Signs of Pregnancy

Another sign and symptom of pregnancy is the changing of size and feel of your breast. As early as a few days after conception, this pregnancy symptom may occur. Your breast is beginning to enlarge, as it gets ready for breastfeeding.
Many women claim that their breasts are very sensitive and that they experience a very sharp, tingling sensation as well. Being one of the signs and symptoms of being pregnant, the tenderness of the breast often disappears a few weeks later.

Missed periods - many women feel tizzy and anxious when periods have crossed due dates. Missed period, according to the most of the individuals and pregnant women is a prominent indication of pregnancy. However, a missed period may follow other factors as well, such as certain medications or side effects of medical treatments, stress etc. Therefore, consult your doctor immediately when your period is overdue whether it is an early pregnancy symptom or not.

Spider Veins - Appearance or the veins surrounding chest and upper arms getting prominent is one of the very unusual early pregnancy symptoms. This is one symptom what most women hate and fret over. However, doctors suggest there is nothing to get apprehended about the spider veins as it simply results from an increased blood flow in the body and then being carried over to different vital areas of the body.

 Frequent Urination-Increased frequency in urination is a significant early pregnancy symptom. Stretch in ligaments and hormonal changes may lead pregnant women rush to loo. As your uterus enlarges to accommodate development of the fetus, it starts occupying spaces of bladder and pushes it, which is why you may feel a surge of urine now and then.

Abdominal Cramping - Onset of cramping also indicates attachment of embryo to your uterus. Attachment of embryo to the inner lining of uterus makes ligaments in the uterus expand to accommodate fetus's growth in it. Such expansion can give you a cramping sensation in your abdomen as you feel during menstruation. However, sharp and acute cramping pain is a negative pregnancy symptom, consult your physician immediately.

Light spotting or bleeding a few days prior to due date of menses is a strong symptom of a woman being pregnant. Usually the women experience brownish or pinkish vaginal discharge right after the implantation of egg in the uterus

Nausea or vomiting is one early pregnancy symptom that appears in the very early stages of the pregnancy. This is also known more popularly as morning sickness. There are instances when this early pregnancy symptom occurred so early that the women could not realize it and thought that this is happening because of the food poisoning or cold effect.

Food cravings for a particular type of food are still an unsolved mystery. Some doctors feel this is the way the body acquires the adequate minerals required by the growing embryo. This pregnancy symptom is an early sign of pregnancy and stays on till the end.

In addition to a missed period, the earliest signs and symptoms of pregnancy might include:
  • Tender, swollen breasts. Early in pregnancy hormonal changes might make your breasts tender, sensitive or sore. 
  • Nausea with or without vomiting. 
  • Increased urination.
  • Fatigue.
  • Food aversions or cravings.

It is very common for pregnant women to experience a milky white discharge in the first weeks of pregnancy (it doesn't mean your ovulating), it is referred tp as leucorrhea. Your estrogen levels will increase once you become pregnant, and greater blood flow will occur in the vagina as well.

How soon can pregnancy symptoms begin?
A few days after conception, the fertilized egg attaches itself to wall of the uterus. This can cause one of the earliest signs of pregnancy -- spotting and, sometimes, cramping. That's called implantation bleeding. It occurs anywhere from six to 12 days after the egg is fertilized.

How long does it take for you to know if your pregnant?
Most doctors recommend that you wait until the first day of your missed period before taking a home pregnancy test. A missed period is usually one of the first signs of pregnancy. This is usually around two weeks after conception. However, some tests are more sensitive than others and can be taken earlier.

How long does it take for you to know if your pregnant?
You can do a pregnancy test from the first day of your missed period. If you have regular periods, you'll probably know when this is. If you're not sure when your next period is due, you can do a pregnancy test 21 days (three weeks) after you last had unprotected sex.
