Early Pregnancy Symptoms

The first early pregnancy symptoms are sometimes hard to read. Some women say that they had a single drop of blood after ovulation (implantation bleeding) and they just knew. Some felt strange sensations or fullness in their breasts. Some didn’t feel any different at all and just missed a period. What are the early pregnancy symptoms that most women experience?

  • Implantation Bleeding a few days after ovulation *
  • Full or Tender Breasts
  • Needle-Like Sensation or tingling in your areolas, like they’ve fallen asleep
  • Darkening of Areolas
  • Constipation
  • Frequent heartburn or indigestion
  • Skipped or Very Light Period *
  • Fatigue - going to bed early too often*
  • Sleeplessness
  • Nausea
  • Frequent Urination
  • Positive Pregnancy Test * - the only sure pregnancy symptom

Some pregnancy symptoms occur earlier than others, indicated with the asterisk*.

These symptoms can be experienced as early as 11 days dpo to 14 days dpo (days post ovulation), around the time your period would normally occur. Remember that not all women experience the same pregnancy symptoms. Your early pregnancy symptoms may be a little bit different than your friend's symptoms, or she may have felt her pregnancy symptoms earlier than you.

If you have any of these early pregnancy symptoms , visit your doctor as soon as possible. He will check out your symptoms and give you a pregnancy test for confirmation. Also, be sure to subscribe to our fetal development newsletter. Join SmartMomma Advantage for free!
