Are you wondering if you could be pregnant? You might feel worried and scared, or you might be excited and hopeful. It's important to first understand the signs and symptoms of pregnancy. The American Pregnancy Association explains the following symptoms: "Spotting: Implantation bleeding can be one of the earliest pregnancy symptoms. About 6-12 days after conception, the embryo implants itself into the uterine wall. Some women will experience spotting as well as cramping. Some women do not even notice implantation bleeding or cramping, so don’t worry if you are trying to get pregnant and don’t experience these symptoms; you could still be pregnant.
Delayed or Missed Period: A delayed or missed period is the most common pregnancy symptom leading a woman to test for pregnancy. When you become pregnant, your next period should be missed. Some women can bleed while they are pregnant, but typically this bleeding will be shorter or lighter than a normal period.
Swollen or Tender Breasts: Swollen or tender breasts is a pregnancy symptom which may begin as early as 1-2 weeks after conception. Women may notice changes in their breasts; they may be tender to the touch, sore, or swollen.
Fatigue or Tiredness: Feeling fatigued or more tired is a pregnancy symptom which can also start as early as the first week after conception.
Morning Sickness or Nausea: This well-known pregnancy symptom will oftentimes show up between 2-8 weeks after conception." http://americanpregnancy.org
