​A missed period can often be an indicator of pregnancy, and is often the most common first sign that alerts a woman to a potential pregnancy.

But there may be several other early pregnancy symptoms that you may be experiencing. We’ve included a list of common early pregnancy symptoms below, but it is important to remember that not all women experience pregnancy the same way, and pregnancy is not necessarily the root cause if you are experiencing these signs and symptoms. If you think you might be pregnant, please call our clinic for a free pregnancy test.

Early Pregnancy Symptoms:

  • Fatigue – many women report feeling exceptionally tired during pregnancy, and fatigue can set in as early as a week after conception!
  • Spotting and Cramps – early pregnancy cramps often resemble menstrual cramps. Ladies sometimes mistake spotting early in pregnancy as the beginning of their period. Early pregnancy spotting and early cramps are often one of the first signs of pregnancy, occurring anywhere from 6 to 12 days after conception.
  • Breast Sensitivity – due to the higher levels of hormones, a woman’s breasts may become sensitive, swollen, or sore a week or two after conception.
  • Nausea (Morning Sickness) – perhaps one of the more recognizable symptoms of pregnancy is heightened food sensitivity and nausea. Some pregnant women experience some sort of food sensitivity (craving certain foods or being repulsed by others).

Again, not all women experience pregnancy the same way. If you think you are pregnant and you are experiencing these common early pregnancy symptoms, we strongly encourage you to call a pregnancy resource clinic near you for a free pregnancy test. Additionally, an ultrasound can help determine if the pregnancy is viable. At Heart to Heart, our nurses are trained to perform limited obstetrical ultrasounds. While the above list includes some of the earliest signs of pregnancy, the best way to determine if you are pregnant is to take a pregnancy test and schedule an ultrasound.
