First symptoms of pregnancy
Although you probably won't start to experience any pregnancy symptoms until a few weeks after conception, the truth is that right from the very first moment, your body has started to experience changes that can tell you you're pregnant.

The most significant change is, of course, your periods will stop, although for women with irregular cycles this factor does not necessarily indicate that they are pregnant. Other symptoms that can appear in the first few weeks are:

  • Nausea and vomiting
    This is very common in the first weeks of pregnancy (although it can continue throughout the whole pregnancy) and usually occurs in the morning when you wake up.
  • Premenstrual pain
    During the first weeks of pregnancy it is normal to feel pain in the lower part of the abdomen, similar to premenstrual pain and which it is easy to confuse, along with the absence of periods, with the warning sign of your next period.
  • An increased need to urinate
    The uterus has started to grow and puts pressure on the bladder increasing the feeling of needing to urinate. This pressure, along with the increase in blood flow and other fluids that make the kidneys work more, means that this need to go to the toilet more often can last throughout the whole pregnancy.
  • Drowsiness and tiredness
    Due to the hormonal changes caused by pregnancy it is very possible that in the first weeks you feel strangely tired, with a constant feeling of fatigue and lack of energy, and very sleepy. This feeling usually wears off in the second trimester of the pregnancy.
  • Swollen breasts and discomfort
    This is also one of the most significant symptoms of a possible pregnancy. The increase in hormone levels causes changes to the breasts that can make them increase in size and can cause discomfort that is a bit more painful than premenstrual discomfort but these symptoms should also wear off in a few weeks.
  • Mood swings
    Any hormonal change can have an impact on our mood and can cause mood swings. So, in the first weeks of pregnancy you may feel over sensitive or unusually sad or angry.

Although these symptoms are more common in the first weeks of pregnancy, every woman is different and the symptoms can appear earlier or later on in the pregnancy. When you have the first symptoms or suspicions that you may be pregnant, the best thing is to make an appointment to see your doctor to confirm the pregnancy or detect the possible causes of the symptoms.
