Not everyone experience the same early symptoms when they are pregnant because the symptoms vary in nature and severity. A woman may not necessarily have the same symptoms in the same way as she felt during the subsequent pregnancies as well. Asides from a missed period that everyone look up to as a sign of pregnancy, there are other possible early signs and symptoms that suggest pregnancy. Although, these symptoms are not unique to pregnancy alone, some of them might indicate illness or normal menstrual cycle. Ofcourse, many early pregnancy symptoms are quite similar to the routine menstrual cycle discomfort.

 Tenderness of the breasts.There are lots of breast changes that suggest pregnancy at its early stage. This is due to the hormonal level change immediately after conception. The breast becomes swollen, sore with a tingling sensation later. They may also appear fuller or a feeling of tenderness to the touch. You can also notice darkening of the area around the nipples, called the areola.

 Spotting and Cramps. When fertilization takes place, the fertilized egg will swim to attach itself to the wall of the uterus. This result to one of the earliest signs of pregnancy termed spotting and at times, feeling of cramps. The term commonly used for this is “implantation bleeding”. You can notice a small amount of vaginal bleeding, it occurs around day 10 to 14 days after fertilization. The cramps experienced by some women are similar to menstrual cramps.

Morning sickness. Most people refer to nausea and vomiting experienced during early pregnancy as morning sickness. It occurs around the 4th to the 6th week. This can happen during the day or night and the nausea or vomiting has been attributed to the changes in hormonal level as well.

 Fatigue. You may experience a feeling of tiredness or fatigue as an early symptom of pregnancy. This is also as a result of changes in the hormonal level. This feeling can happen as early as a week after conception.

Missed period. This appears to be the well-known early symptom of pregnancy that prompts most women for a pregnancy test. Although, possibility for a missed period is related to other factors such as stress, being obese, birth control pills. But if you miss a period, there is the possibility that conception has taken place.

Frequent urination. Some women may start urinating frequently most likely due to changes in hormonal level. This can be noticed around the sixth to eighth week of pregnancy. Other possible cause for urinating frequently can be a urinary tract infection.

Changes in Mood. As a result of high hormonal level specifically oestrogen and progesterone, this can have effect on your mood and make you more emotional. This is very common in pregnancy and may result to a feeling of irritability, anxiety.

Dizziness. In early pregnancy, some women may experience the feeling of dizziness as a result of a drop in the blood pressure (either normal or high).
