Symptoms of Pregnancy in First Week

What are the symptoms of pregnancy in first week?

Even before you miss your periods, you may sometimes get some early signs of pregnancy. But many early signs of pregnancy can sometimes feel similar to premenstrual symptoms too.

When do the early signs of pregnancy start? 

Do you remember when you had your past periods? This date is considered week 1 of pregnancy – yes, even if you were not pregnant at this date. Then week 2 of pregnancy is the next week from your period and so on. So do women get the symptoms of pregnancy in first week? 

Even before you miss your periods, you may sometimes get some early signs of pregnancy. For some women, early symptoms of pregnancy start to show up in the first few weeks after conception. However, other women may just experience no pregnancy symptoms at all. It’s only when they take a pregnancy test at home that they come to know about their pregnancy. 

Many early signs of pregnancy can sometimes feel similar to premenstrual symptoms too. So the best way to find out about your pregnancy is to take a pregnancy test at home. However, if you are willing to wait for a missed period (the earliest sign of pregnancy) to take the test, the following list is for you. These are also the symptoms of pregnancy in first month. 

These are some of the early signs of pregnancy (pregnancy symptoms week 1) before a missed period: 

  • Painful breasts: this could be a sign that you’re pregnant, but it could also just be because you’re going through puberty.
  • Fatigue and tiredness
  • Sensitivity to smell 
  • Rise in your basal metabolic temperature (normal body temperature) 
  • Tiredness: this could be a sign that you’re pregnant – though obviously there could be other causes!
  • Nausea: if you’ve been feeling sick for a few days, especially in the morning, it’s a good idea to do a pregnancy test.
  • Your period doesn’t start.
  • You only have a very small amount of bleeding. Sometimes you can have a little bleeding when you’re pregnant.
  • Headaches 
  • Constipation 
  • Feeling lightheaded or dizzy – as if you are fainting 
  • Mood sings 
  • Aversion to some foods
  • Frequent urination 

How soon can you get early signs of pregnancy? 

Before you miss your periods, you may notice some symptoms like sensitivity to smell and tender breasts. These symptoms may appear in some women as soon as a few days after conception. 

However, many women may get other early symptoms of pregnancy like spotting or nausea almost one week after the sperm meets egg. After two weeks of conceiving many women may also have pregnancy symptoms like tender breasts and frequent urination. That said, early pregnancy symptoms appear at various times in different women. So these early signs of pregnancy are no way of detecting a pregnancy. 

If you have had unprotected sex and worried about pregnancy, please take a home pregnancy test at the earliest.

No bete! There is no problem with sex during period, if the equal wishes of both partners are involved. And condoms are also required to be used to avoid any infection. https://lovematters.in/hi/resource/faqs-period https://lovematters.in/hi/news/sex-during-my-period-do-i-need-contraception If you would like to join in on a further discussion on this topic, join our discussion board, "Just Ask” https://lovematters.in/en/forum

I complete periods,, but after periods 3-4 days later..I feel vomit, stomach ache, tiredness, constipation nd more of symptoms get in my body same days,, what this causes of pregnancy?
Doubtful bete! If you have had a complete period - as usual - these symptoms are not conclusive of a pregnancy, in fact the chances are very low. These may be symptoms for something else as well - BUT if you have got some days mixed up - then its difficult to say so do a home test and be clear - Ok? https://lovematters.in/hi/pregnancy/home-pregnancy-tests-dos-and-donts If you would like to join in on a further discussion on this topic, join our discussion board, "Just Ask” https://lovematters.in/en/forum

We are having intercourse on my 16 day after my period. 30th day light brownish flow occur then stopped. But I don't feel any preganency symptoms except pack pain. But till period is absent. There is a changes of preganency
The days you are mentioning are mid cycle so yes this can be a sign of pregnancy - it is common to not have very early symptoms - so you may not get to know so early. Please asap, do a home pregnancy test and find out. https://lovematters.in/hi/pregnancy/home-pregnancy-tests-dos-and-donts If you would like to join in on a further discussion on this topic, join our discussion board, "Just Ask” https://lovematters.in/en/forum
If you are still having periods after unsafe sex, then there are virtually no chances of being pregnant. But just to be on the safe side, it would be wise to take a home pregnancy test. Please use condom next time. If you would like to join in on a further discussion on this topic, join our discussion board, ‘Just Ask’ https://lovematters.in/en/forum
Its been about one month from my last period date .. i had not got my periods till now..nd i didn’t have any intercourse too.. i don’t know what’s wrong... plzz tell me something about it ..?
Don't be so afraid of it... Sometimes periods are late, it may be due to stress, tension or hormonal changes... So the best would be to see a few days and then find a doctor.

Abhi bete if the sex was unsafe, then chances of pregnancy may be there. Take a home pregnancy test after 10 days of unsafe sex and confirm the situation first.

i think i had last intercourse in the month of march, i missed my periods in april, so i did a pregnancy test in may around the 2nd may- it came negative, as i had PCOD, i thought it could be delayed because i used to have problems of irregular cycles. however on 12th of may slight spotting and 2 days light periods happened. after 15th may until now the end of july i again did not get my periods.Today morning I did my pregnancy test, it came positive. Now I am confused if I am pregnant or not because i had negative in May and positive in July. And if i am pregnant how did it happen after 4 months of intercourse. Please explain.
Hi Yasmen beta - use the link to the Ovulation Calendar given below bete. That will help you . You can even test/check the calendar by putting older dates - confirm your cycle of last two months - since now you know when your periods came - and now chart ahead Best of luck. Be cool and dont get impatient. If your cycle is regular - which seems to be varying - you will just need to be relaxed and comfortable. You can check a Home test 10 days after the last time you had sex on any of the fertile days. You period ought t have come by now - do a test now.
