How Early Do Pregnancy Signs Start, and What Are the Signs?

Women can experience early signs of pregnancy as soon as a week or two after conception, while others may not feel any symptoms until four or five weeks after conception. Some women may only notice symptoms once their period is delayed or even later on in their pregnancy.

What are the 5 main signs of pregnancy?

The symptoms of pregnancy vary from woman to woman. Some may experience numerous symptoms, while others may only have a few. 

Symptoms of early pregnancy include:

  1. Missed period
    If you are in your childbearing years, a missed period of more than a week can indicate you are
    pregnant. If you have an irregular menstrual cycle, pregnancy will be more difficult to determine
    by a missed period.
  2. Breast changes 
    As your hormones rise, your breasts and nipples can become sore. It usually only lasts a week or two. If you have breast tenderness during your first trimester, it may diminish or go away during
    the second trimester. However, it can continue throughout the entire pregnancy for some.
  3. Fatigue
    Fatigue is not your everyday tiredness; it feels more like severe exhaustion. Your body is nurturing the baby’s development, causing you to slow down and get some needed rest. Energy usually returns in the second trimester.
  4. Frequent urination
    The amount of blood in your body increases during pregnancy, causing your kidneys to produce extra fluid that ends up in your bladder. Frequent urination may ease up in the second trimester
    but usually returns in the final weeks of the pregnancy.
  5. Nausea and vomiting (morning sickness)
    Morning sickness can occur a month into your pregnancy or sooner. Not everyone experiences nausea. However, it can happen any part of the day, not just in the morning. It usually fades by
    10-14 weeks. Around 5% of pregnant women may experience morning sickness symptoms throughout their entire pregnancy.
