Most often to “feel” pregnancy in women takes 2 to 4 weeks after successful conception. But in some cases the female body can give some signals a bit earlier, even before the delay of menstruation. However, keep in mind that early pregnancy symptoms are not exclusive evidence that you are “in position”. Therefore, to confirm your new status, it is always better to consult a doctor even if the pregnancy test gave a negative result, but you still feel that you may be pregnant.
Despite the high probability of obtaining a reliable result on the pregnancy test may not always give the correct result, especially if it is made not in time or in violation of instructions from the user. Today we will talk about the early signs of pregnancy that can appear on the screen in the first few weeks after conception. Please note that you are unlikely to experience even half of all these symptoms, because their presence or absence is unique to each pregnancy.
Generally, pregnancy symptoms quite a lot. However, none of them is a direct confirmation of pregnancy, because it can appear also in various disorders and diseases. It is therefore very important to keep track of a set of several characteristics and based on them already to draw any conclusions.
There are a few of the most common physiological and psychological symptoms, which are quite frequent in pregnant women. The most obvious symptom is the delay period (even though it is not always about pregnancy). However, there are some early signs of pregnancy that you may notice after 7-14 days after conception, i.e. even before the delay.
Your Breasts may be painful when touched. The feelings she begins to rapidly grow and become heavier. Maybe a slight tingling in the breast. All this is connected with the preparation of mammary glands for breastfeeding.
Most often, the skin around the nipples darkens in the later stages of pregnancy, but sometimes within the first 2-3 weeks of the areola may become dark. In addition, they may appear clearly visible tubercles.
Due to the high level of progesterone pregnant women in early pregnancy often feel tired. To facilitate this symptom, get plenty of rest, eat healthy food and avoid heavy physical activity.
At the beginning of pregnancy sometimes occurs lowering the blood sugar level, which is the likely culprit of dizziness.
Hard to say what is the cause of so-called “morning sickness”, but the symptom is fairly common. There are opinions that blame hormones or folic acid deficiency.
It is believed that increasing the level of HCG in a woman’s body can cause frequent urination. Unfortunately, if you have this early symptom of pregnancy, you will not be able to facilitate.
This symptom is also known as “implantation bleeding.” 7-12 days after conception the fertilized egg attaches to the uterine wall. At this time you may notice the appearance of light bleeding.
The high level of progesterone slows down intestinal motility, causing food longer lingers in our digestive tract. To alleviate this condition, drink plenty of fluids and eat fruits, vegetables and foods rich in fiber. In severe constipation, the doctor may prescribe laxatives of vegetable origin.
The slowdown in digestion can also cause heartburn in early pregnancy. In addition, the hormones promote relaxation of the valve between the esophagus and the stomach, causing the esophagus can get stomach acid that cause heartburn.
If you conduct the schedule of basal temperature, you will notice that at the end of the second phase of menstrual cycle temperature is not reduced, but remains high. This is a very indicative symptom of pregnancy.
There are many reasons that can cause lower abdominal pain in early pregnancy. Sometimes it can be light cramps which occur due to uterine contractions. If the pain is not bothering you much and occur periodically and for a short while, do not worry. To ease the pain, you can gently massage or put a warm (not hot) heating pad on your lower abdomen. However, if the pain is severe or accompanied by bleeding of varying intensity-it’s a reason to go to the doctor.
Hormonal changes affect the sense of smell and taste sensations. These heightened senses can lead to a strong aversion or an irresistible craving for some food.
During pregnancy many women (and their families) notice a change in emotional state. You can suddenly cry or suddenly get angry for no particular reason. In order not to spoil relations with loved ones, try to control your emotions.
Sometimes a woman just knows that she is pregnant, even before any evidence of this. It’s hard to say why this happens, but it happens often enough.
The above early pregnancy signs do not appear in all pregnant women. And even if there are, then not every woman gives them attention and connects with pregnancy. So often the first symptom for women becomes the delay of menstruation. And although delay is not always about pregnancy, it is the most significant sign of this.
First and foremost, you need to calm down. Whether you want a child or not, the symptoms of pregnancy should not cause you to have no euphoria, no panic. It is possible that these symptoms have nothing to do with pregnancy. So you have to wait for the delay of menstruation and a pregnancy test. Don’t do the test early because most of the existing tests can’t give you an accurate result before a minimum of 14 days after conception.
To do the test best in the morning during the first urination, because at this time the level of HCG hormone, the designated test is the highest. An alternative to a pregnancy test is a blood test for HCG, but he can’t give a perfect result on a very early pregnancy.

From that moment you become a mother and begins to take responsibility not only for yourself but for the little body growing in your womb. Therefore, in the first place, totally abstain from any bad habits, maximum limit the use of caffeine, try to eat only healthy food that contains all the necessary vitamins and minerals.
