Varied: Different people have different symptoms, but more common symptoms include nausea, vomiting, breast tenderness, increased urination. Some people are unaware they are pregnant. It depends on the person.

Pregnancy symptoms: A missed period is often the first clue. Fatigue, frequent need to urinate, tender breasts are often next to happen. Some experience headaches. Nausea may not happen until 7 weeks or so. There are other symptoms as well but those mentioned already do occur commonly.

A positive test: For many women, the first sign of a pregnancy is a missed period and a positive home pregnancy test. Others may experience breast tenderness, fatigue, and nausea. It is also common to feel some pelvic fullness, mild cramping, and urinary urgency.

Signs of preg: In addition to a missed period, the earliest signs and symptoms of pregnancy might include: Tender, swollen breasts. Early in pregnancy hormonal changes might make your breasts tender, sensitive or sore. ...Nausea with or without vomiting. ...Increased urination. ...Fatigue. ...Food aversions or cravings.

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

A specific set: Early signs and symptoms of pregnancy include breast enlargement and tenderness, nausea and/or vomiting, weight gain, abdominal fullness, and period irregularity with either spotting or missed periods. Keep track of your gal's periods on a calendar so you are aware of her fertile days, expected period times, and possible times to look for these symptoms.
