Are You Pregnant?

There are some typical pregnancy symptoms, that might give you a clue as to whether you are pregnant or not. I've listed the most common ones below. Keep in mind, that you might have all, some or even none of the symptoms below and still be pregnant. Unless you've tested positive with a blood test at your gyn/ob's office, you can't be 100% sure.

Early Signs And Symptoms Of Pregnancy - What might happen right away after conception

  • Lack of period (amenorrhea)
  • Tender, swollen breasts
  • Nausea (with or without vomiting)
  • Raised basal body temperature
  • Headaches
  • Mood swings
  • Dizziness or faintness
  • Cravings or food aversions
  • Constipation
  • Fatigue
  • Low back pain
  • Implantation bleeding

Are You Unusually Tired?

Fatigue and exhaustion are one of the earliest signs of pregnancy. It's normal to feel wiped-out in the first 3 months of your pregnancy. Don't worry - as you go into the second trimester, expect to get a little of your energy back.

Help With Nausea And Morning Sickness

It is not known what exactly causes some pregnant women to have nausea and vomiting during pregnancy, but it is thought to be related to elevated hormone levels.

To help with morning sickness, try some of these suggestions:

  • Eat something small, such as a saltine cracker just after you wake up, and before you get out of bed
  • Eat small, but frequent meals throughout the day. Stay away from heavy meals.
  • Drink plenty of fluids, such as water or herbal tea (particularly ginger tea)
  • Avoid smells or scents that make you feel sick

Prevent Morning Sickness With These Great Items!

If you're one of the many women who is suffering from morning sickness, here are a few really nice items to help you feel better during your pregnancy.

How Long Should I Wait Before I Take A Pregnancy Test?

Although it is recommended that you wait until after you miss your first period, you can sometimes find out a bit earlier. You could try taking a test as early as 14 days after conception, but keep in mind that if you get a negative result, it does not definitively mean that you aren't pregnant. Wait a few days and try again.
