Signs and Symptoms of Pregnancy

237-800-cropAny time you have sex, there is a chance you could get pregnant. Pregnancy symptoms differ from woman to woman and pregnancy to pregnancy. One of the most common symptoms is a delayed or missed period. You may see signs of pregnancy within a week of conception. It is also possible for symptoms to start a few weeks later.

If you think you could be pregnant, watch for these early signs and symptoms: missed period, headaches, tender breasts, nausea, and lower backaches. Unfortunately, these symptoms are not unique to pregnancy, and you could be pregnant without experiencing any of them.

Early Signs and Symptoms of Pregnancy

In addition to a missed period, the earliest symptoms of pregnancy might include:

  • Nausea with or without vomiting.
  • Tender, swollen breasts.
  • Increased urination.
  • Fatigue.
  • Food aversions or cravings.
  • Bloating.

Sometimes symptoms of pregnancy are less familiar or obvious. If you’re pregnant, you might also experience:

  • Slight bleeding or cramping.
  • Backaches.
  • Headaches.
  • Mood swings.
  • Dizziness.
  • Constipation.
  • Darkening of the Areolas.

If you are pregnant, you have three options to consider. You could choose parenting, adoption, or abortion. You may find it helpful to talk with someone about all these options. Many women do. The Life Center offers confidential support and accurate information about all pregnancy options. The Life Center, however, does not offer or refer for abortion services.
