Positive pregnancy?: At 3 weeks you can likely get a positive pregnancy test. The hormone beta HCG is increasing (this is the basis for a pregnancy test). It can cause problems with nausea, vomiting. You may develop nipple tenderness.

Usually 2 weeks: You body starts to make the hormones that make you feel pregnant after implantation. This occurs about 9-12 days after you ovulate or around the time your period would start.

Early?: If it is too early to tell you are pregnant, i assume you mean you haven't missed a period yet. In that case it would be unlikely to have any sensations related to a pregnancy already occurring.

Some small changes: A woman of childbearing age who has some nausea (with or without vomiting), some fatigue (feels less energetic), a sharper/stronger sense of smell, mild soreness/swelling of her breasts, and maybe some food aversions and cravings . . . Could be pregnant. Symptoms can occur before missing a period. She can do a urine pregnancy test 1 week after missing her period, to see if she will have a baby.

Usually quickly: A home pregnancy test may become positive 10-14 days after conception. If you are 7-10 days late with your period and you do a home pregnancy test and it is positive, it is genuinely reliable.

Possibly: Get a home pregnancy test. They should turn positive about the time you're a week late. If it's negative, repeat it and call your doctor.
