Initial Signs of Pregnancy

Some women experience signs of pregnancy immediately; their bodies feel drastically different. Others experience no signs of pregnancy, and weeks might pass before they take a test.

Both situations are typical, and in some cases, what seems like pregnancy symptoms are actually indicative of stress or other health conditions. Here are some symptoms to look for:

  • Missed period
  • Tender, swollen breasts
  • Fatigue
  • Frequent urination
  • Nausea with or without vomiting
  • Moodiness
  • Cramping
  • Constipation
  • Nasal congestion
  • Food aversions
  • Bloating

If you think you may be pregnant, remember that taking a test is the only way to know.

When To Test for Pregnancy

The best time to test for pregnancy is a few days after your missed period. This allows your body time for hCG levels to develop. This hormone is only produced during pregnancy. Both blood and urine-based tests detect hCG.

Taking an at-home test first thing in the morning is ideal because this is when your urine is most concentrated. Confirming an at-home test result with pregnancy testing at a doctor’s office or pregnancy center is best. Sometimes, women receive a false result if they take a test too early or incorrectly.
