Early signs of pregnancy

For women who have a regular monthly menstrual cycle, the earliest and most reliable sign of pregnancy is a missed period. Sometimes women who are pregnant have a very light period, losing only a little blood. Some of the other early pregnancy signs and symptoms are listed below. Every woman is different and not all women will notice all of these symptoms. 

Feeling sick during pregnancy

You may feel sick and nauseous, and/or vomit. This is commonly known as morning sickness, but it can happen at any time of the day or night. 

Around half of all pregnant women experience nausea and vomiting, and around three in 10 women experience nausea without vomiting. For most women who have morning sickness, the symptoms start around six weeks after their last period.

Find out more about coping with nausea and morning sickness in pregnancy.

If you're being sick all the time and can't keep anything down, contact your GP.

Feeling tired is common in pregnancy

It's common to feel tired, or even exhausted, during pregnancy, especially during the first 12 weeks or so. Hormonal changes taking place in your body at this time can make you feel tired, nauseous, emotional and upset.

Read more about tiredness in pregnancy.

Sore breasts in early pregnancy

Your breasts may become larger and feel tender, just as they might do before your period. They may also tingle. The veins may be more visible, and the nipples may darken and stand out.

Peeing more often suggests pregnancy

You may feel the need to pee (urinate) more often than usual, including during the night.

Other signs of pregnancy that you might notice are:

Strange tastes, smells and cravings

During early pregnancy, you may find your senses are heightened and that some foods or drinks you previously enjoyed become repellent. You might notice:

  • a strange taste in your mouth, which many women describe as metallic
  • craving new foods
  • losing interest in certain foods or drinks that you previously enjoyed, such as tea, coffee or fatty food
  • losing interest in tobacco
  • having a more sensitive sense of smell than usual, for example to the smell of food or cooking

If your pregnancy test is negative

A positive test result is almost certainly correct. A negative result is less reliable. If you get a negative result and still think that you may be pregnant, wait a week and try again, or see a GP.

I suffer with depression and for that I am on 20mg of citalopram. I also had unprotected sex, and even though I took the morning after pill I am not sure if it worked because of my antidepressants. Before taking the morning after pill I read the leaflet on what would happen like the 3 day heavy bleeding which I never had so that got me thinking as to weather or not my antidepressants has stopped the morning after pill from working? I am also late with my period and I have been spending more time then normal passing urine and I have been feeling tired more even though I can't sleep!! Could I be pregnant?

Hi, I am 16 and have always been very certain to use contraception during sex, I have tried various types of the pill all of which have caused bloating tiredness etc. For the past month I have been relying solely on condoms which causes me to feel paranoid. As of late I have been feeling tired, very - noticeably - bloated and far more constipated than the usual I suffer from, plus also needing to wee in the night, experiencing odd tastes in my mouth, and feeling increasingly sick and nauseous, with more frequent headaches. I am aware some of these signs may be caused by the increase in temperature now it is summer, plus my change in diet now I have finished school and lost enthusiasm to eat healthily. Also my mood has dropped considerably, however it is common for me to suffer with headaches, bloating, depressive spells etc. just not all at once! I have always had irregular periods so I cannot use this to judge, but could I possibly be pregnant or am I just paranoid now that I no longer take any form of the pill? I don't wish to worry my parents or boyfriend about this, i'm sure a pregnancy test is the best option but getting hold of one without them finding out is a difficult task! I would very much appreciate it if someone could put my mind at rest! Thank you!

Hey guys,

At the start of the year I miscarried at 11weeks 4days. Now 6 months down the line I'm 7 days late and having plenty of early pregnancy signs. Now some people may think 7 days isn't that bad but I'm 28 day cycle no matter what is going on with my body. As I also have UC. So I'm a regular girl and this is a big shock. Not getting my hopes up as tests have been negative... Any ideas.... It also isn't me thinking this as I wasn't trying to get pregnant just enjoying myself with my Boyf ?? let me know ideas. I'm open to everything thanks xxxxxx

Hi, I am on the Mirena Coil, I have been since August 2013. For the first time I am experiencing a lot of pregnancy symptoms? I have very tender breasts & they are now leaking too, I am very bloated and tired, although tiredness is not unusual for me! I also have a lot of headaches. I have had sore breasts before but not this bad & not swollen and they certainly didn't leak! Is there a chance I could be pregnant!?

Thank you in advance

My period is nearly 3 weeks late at the moment, they have always been a bit dodgy and i have been quite ill and stressed lately. I have no symptoms of being pregnant except the missed period even though it would be my 5th week-ish. Im really quite worried as I missed 1 pill even though it was just after my last period ended. I know its not 100% effective but im freaking out a little. Do you think I could be pregnant?

I always get my period on the 14th of every month. But last month I got my period on the 14th and again on the 28th. This month I have not gotten a period at all. I thought being that it came on the 28th that would be my new cycle date. But its now the 30th of May and I haven't had a period yet. For the pass two weeks my breast felt heavier than they usual do. My question is, it is possible that I could be pregnant? during my first pregnancy I was 8 weeks and I didn't even know.

@Beanpea12;
The same thing has happened to me! I know you must be worried but try to calm yourself. If you've been careful and used protection then this could help calm you. I bought my test and it came back negative - but nip in to your doctors and get tested then you will know for sure. Periods don't always go to plan even if they settle into a routine your body is always changing:)

I had unprotected sex 5 weeks ago but had a period the next day, about 2 and a half weeks ago I started getting really bad cramps and then came on a week early which lasted for 11 days. However I'm still experiencing really bad cramps and I'm having red/brown discharge and it's getting more red?

Vickijaye, go to the doctors to get the pregnancy confirmed.
It could be that clear blue tests are more sensitive than tescos brand.

Hi I was just wondering if anyone could help me or give me advise or personal view, I had the implant in my arm about two months ago now and I felt today that near the end of the implant I can feel something sticking up, almost like it's snapped at the end, I'm really worrying because I had unprotected sex a few weeks ago and am now having quite a few signs of pregnancy, but my doctor told me it is very unlikely to be able to get pregnant with the implant, if anyone knows anything about any of this or has happened to them, please help me! Thanks x

I have tested positive 4 times since Thursday, 2 Clear Blue digital and 2 Clear Blue non digital. The 2 digital both said pregnant 1-2 weeks and the 2 non digital should a faint positive result. Due to a miscarriage last year I wanted to make sure so I took another 2 tests today both Tesco's own brand they are both showing negative! Should I just face facts and convince myself I was never pregnant or should I go to see my doctor? Your advice would be welcome. Thanks

Hi, I'm wondering if anyone could give me their words of wisdom. Last year I fell pregnant then only to find out at my 12 week scan my baby had not made it. I then had a surgical procedure to remove it. I then did not have a period for 8 weeks and tested again positive, then started testing negative then positive and negative again! It was an utter nightmare! I then finally started regular periods in December (10 months after my last regular period, which was the last one before I found out I was expecting!) It's now April and I've missed my last period which was due on 15th April and I've started testing positive again. The Clear Blue digital test is testing 1-2 weeks (GP would read this as 3-4 weeks) and the non digital (same make) is also testing positive but with a faint positive reading. I am experiencing tender breasts and an increasing sore back. I am going to the toilet more often than normal too. A lot of my symptoms are similar to the last time. I'm so terrified the whole of last year is happening again! Has anyone else experienced similar? If so how did you get through it? Any advice would be grateful. Thanks

When I had my last baby by c-section,I remember the obstetrician telling me as I was being wheeled back to the ward, that my next baby will also be delivered by c-section. I looked at her and said ok. Now I thought I've just had this baby,I'm not planning another one just yet. Then even my boyfriend a few months later asked me if I wanted another baby.I thought hang on a minute,what is this? I'm no baby machine! :-) But now things are different. I feel I'm ready. So here's hoping it happens soon. Three children is my limit.x

The last pregnancy I had nearly 2 years ago ,I didn't know I was pregnant yet others told me I looked like I was. I had a light period and thought nothing of it,but even though I bled I was actually pregnant. My first scan showed that I was a month advanced in my pregnancy. So to those who have a light period while trying for a baby, it doesn't't mean you're not pregnant. Notice any pregnancy symptoms you might have and do a test.

I was wondering if anyone could help me. About 6 1/2 weeks ago I had unprotected sex, 3 weeks later I came on a very heavy period... But I had the implant in for three years and been quite heavy since so this could be a normal bleed for me. 2 weeks later I've had some very light spotting... And then nothing. I took a home pregnancy test but it came back negative. Could I be pregnant even after a period or is my body playing games with me.

Thanks for any replies!

Hi there, I was wondering if anyone can help me. for the past week and a bit I have been feeling quite nauseous and really tired. I put it down to my period being due. I started on Friday and was heavy for 2 days and not so much on the last day. It is very unusual for me I always have at least 5 days of heavy to medium bleeding. I am still really tired and feeling sick, but not actually being sick, Also my breast are quite sensitive. Me & my husband have been trying for a baby for over a year, so I don't want to get my hopes up, I have had sooo many negative tests over the past year I am a bit apprehensive about getting another one and getting my hopes up. Could it be anything other than being pregnant?

Hi.
I would like someone's advice and help if possible.

My partner and I have been trying for a baby for the good part of almost a year now with no luck but this time I really feel I am based on all the symptoms I am having which I will describe below. However, I have taken I'd say 4 tests already, one when I finished the spotting, one the day I reached a week late, another one the day after the week I was late and again 2 mornings agoo and all have been negative unless I have too low a HCG count or just not pregnant but showing all signs anyway.

The symptoms I've had are:
spotting on and off for 4 days. It started 13 days after I was meant to have ovulated and stopped the night I was due on.
-I then skipped my period
-I have been on and off sick since then and it's been nearly 2 weeks of sickness as well as urinating more than usual.
-I've had on and off headaches which I don't get many of in my life, not even when I'm usually due on my period
-I've had achey breasts on and off for the last 2 weeks ish and I don't usually get achey breasts when I'm due on my period either
-I'm due back on my period 20 days but not sure if I will come on this month.

Can anyone shed any light on whether it sounds like I could be pregnant but just not showing on a test?
Also, if I could be pregnant, when would it be right to see a doctor because of the negative tests so that I can give my baby the care it needs to grow? Should I wait to see if I come on again and keep testing every 2 days until then (as I've heard every 48 hours, the concentration of HCG doubles) or do I go in the next week to get checked up (as I've been told to see a dr straight away if there is a chance I could be pregnant and had bleeding in pregnancy or if I'm having pregnancy symptoms but getting a negative result after a couple of weeks being late?)

Please help.

I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend on 13/01/2014 however did take an emergency contraceptive pill (Emkit 48 hours after). My menstrual cycle is very regular as I had a 7 day normal period on 17/12/2013 however I had very light bleeding on 22/01/2014 which lasted about 5 days (not sure if this was my period). I am supposed to have my period now however it has not come yet. Is there a chance I could be pregnant? I have taken 3 pregnancy tests one on 01/02/2014 and again on 09/02/2014 and then again on 18/02/2014 all came out negative. My boyfriend said he didn't finish inside me and pulled out on time however some pre-ejaculatory fluid may have come out.


Is there anything someone can recommend to me or any advice as I am slightly worried. Thank you

I have been on the implant since April last year, I have a period around every 2-3 months and I had one last month. I have spoken to my mother as my breasts were sore and when I touched them they were quite hard and bigger, my mother thought so too. I've had mood swings the past 2-3weeks and I have been eating and peeing non-stop. I've gained weight so my uniform is quite tight on me now and I've been a bit constipated and had back pain, tiredness and pains in my legs and hips. Anyone know if I could be pregnant? I'm only 17 and quite confused? Thanks

Sorry for2 of the same comments. Didn't think it had gone through. Also, bother is meant to be another and plantation is meant to be implantation.

Hi. Should I be worried. I was due on my period around the 20th. I came on what I thought was my normal period on the 18th whilst I was asleep in bed. I woke on the 19th to find I hadn't bled as much as I do and hadn't had my usual sign of cramping that suggested I was about to come on. I noticed I had light bleeding. I noticed throughout the day on the 19th that my bleeding got lighter and lighter until around 10pm(24 hours after bleeding had started) it was only spotting. Also, the only cramping I got was for about half an hour at 9pm ish. I went to the toilet before going to bed and noticed what I thought was a blood clot (red and stringy). I woke an hour into my sleep needing the toilet again and when I went I noticed bother clot, this time it was a darker red and shorter in length but still stringy and apart from the clot, i noticed i had stopped bleeding altogether. I tried searching why I was experiencing this and found info on plantation bleeding but after mentioning clots, info pointed me to a miscarriage. I've never had this before, what could it be? Does it seem like a pregnancy or miscarriage? Should I be worried about anything?

Hi,
I am currently on the cerazette pill and have been since August 13th 2013, i had my last proper period in september and then all periods stopped, i did a pregnancy test with the doctor in october and it came back negative, so i have assumed my periods stopped due to the pill.
but in the past month (december 2013) and the current month (January 2013) i have been experiencing brown vaginal discharge and brown/red/pink spotting of blood everyday, with abdomeninal pain, tiredness, back ache, constipation, bloating, mood swings, and a nausea taste in my mouth.
i am slightly concerned why i am suddenly like this?
i dont know if it is to do with the pill an i merely need to change pills to one that will suit me better or if it is linked to pregnancy, has anyone experienced anything similiar? whether to do with cerazette or pregnancy.
Thanks !

Hi

I am a bit confused atm

I have been on the Cerazette pill for about a year now I was on the implant for 3 years before that.

I have never had a period or any pain at all during these contraceptives. But recently I have been having pains like you would when you go on your period. I haven't been bleeding or anything just pain. I have been having lower back pain for a week now and I have been gipping on a morning. I have been having mood swings a lot and just feeling very very tired.

I have taken pregnancy tests and they have been negative but I just don't feel right.

Could I be pregnant?

Im in a pickle. Tw weeks ago I started having lower abdomen pain in the middle of my cycle. Which im on the pill so I was a bit confused a why considering my period is not for another two weeks. Then it proceeded with dizzy spills and light headed when I was walk anywhere with very sore breast. My vaginal discharge was very watery with no smell or color. I went to the doctor and they tested me for everything and said they don't know whats wrong I have symptoms of pregnancy but am not pregnant after they checked my water and blood. Now after all of that I came home and expected my period two days after my pain increased from my abdominal area to my lower back and buttocks and would cramp for hours, my period starts wed mornings and I woke up on tues with a little blood figured maybe it was early. It disappeared the whole day. Wednesday I woke up to start my actual period and I sort of did or did I?? I at the moment have very light bleeding, which im heavy first few days hen eventually it weans itself down over 5 days. Idk whats wrong with my but this is not like my period at all. Never super light and low back pains. I am wondering if there is a chance I could be too early in pregnancy for the doctors to know!. So confused on what to do but I am having back pain and cramps for a two weeks now and I know my body and know somethings is wrong with me

I am extremely confused!! I am currently on the pill I've not been taking it regularly like I should or the same time everyday when I do. my last period was 7 weeks ago which lasted 4 days it was brown in colour but I think that's normal when your on the pill. But on the 11th of November I noticed light pink discharge with a tiny bit of red blood in it then the next day had brown blood but tiny amounts didn't last very long. I took 2 pregnancy test last week both came back negative! And also take one today again negative. I been having loads of symptoms sore breasts, tired, shortness of breath, dry mouth, sweating more than normal, ear ache, lower back pain, having pain on the one side of my abdomen? After taking the first 2 pregnancy tests I went to the doctors because I got a very sore throat felt like I was swallowing razor blades I didn't mention anything about the tests I put it down to having a virus as that's what the doc said but all last week I've been noticing all these systems and still now but I've redone a test and it's come back negative. I don't know what to think could I be but it's too early to tell I just don't know could somebody help me?

Rachelamy - sometimes you can mistake normal symptoms you would have around your period with early signs of pregnancy. The most obvious symptom of early pregnancy is a missed period. You should take a test once you have missed your period. Sorry, you just have to have a little patience ;)

Bluejen said on 12 August 2013

TKS224 - yes you are taking the test too early. The most reliable sign of pregnancy for most women is a missed period. A standard shop bought test will be more accurate if it's taken the day your period was due or after.

Bluejen said on 12 August 2013

Rennay - a standard pregnancy test will only show an accurate result if you take it the day your period is due or after. Try another test in a week or so. If you don't want to get pregnant you need to use a condom every time you have sex.

So I was looking when I ovulated and it said i ovulate July 25. I took a pregnancy test twice in it came out negative. So am I testing too early Because my period suppose to come August 13?

Hi,

Do some people eat more when they're pregnant? i have found myself wanting to eat more but sometimes less each day. i havent done a pregnancy test as my last period was only 08/07 so i don't want to waste it because it's too early, isn't it?

i am bloated, especially in the mornings, tired all the time and i don't do anything more active than usual, feel sick in the mornings (first thing) dizzy but not often and back pains.

This month 4 days early than normal i started to bleed although it was only when I wiped and had no symptoms like I normally do. It lasted 24 hours then stopped and I lost brown discharge after that. I have taken a predictor test but it was negative. This period was not normal to what I normally have and my breasts are tender and I am extremely tired. I am just worried I am convincing myself that I am now :(

Hey kelly1978, I just wanted to encourage you too. We have been ttc for just over six years, but presumed we just couldn't have children. Have been searching online sites for years at other people's experiences to try and get a bit of hope that it would one day happen for me. So I got my first ever bfp yesterday, nearly passed out with the shock and although I am delighted obviously, I still feel a bit shell-shocked.

What worked for me was we actually stopped 'trying', I know you here people saying that it often happens that way, well did for me. My symptoms, like what you are experiencing, extremes tiredness, loose bowels, tenderise breasts but not massively, the weirdest symptom which made me wonder was that I cannot stop eating Brandon pickle.......I usually detest it!

Good luck anyway, keep us updated xxxxx

I always thought it was impossible to have a baby as well, I had 2 miscarriages one when I was 16, and another at 18. I gave up the hope along time ago, as I thought I couldn't get pregnant me and my husband went into fostering, I loved every single moment of it. Then a couple of years ago I was due to go to a Christmas party and had the plan to have a few drinks, I couldn't remember ohow long ago I had my period so I took a test just tomake sure, it came out positive, which I was in complete shock! Me and my husband had tried 12 years for a baby, and we gave up hope after about 6 years to be honest. I fostered for 6 years but had to give that up for the safety of myself and my unborn. I always thought I would miscarriage again, but after a healthy pregnancy I had my little boy at 30+6 week's, he spent 6weels in hospital. He is now 2 next month, amd still can't believe I have a baby, I have to keep reminding myself lol what I'm trying to say, is never give up hope, u never know whats round the next corner xxxxx

Also sometimes i can feel a little flutter in my belly too, i have also been experiencing constipation and bloating. I have been having very bad mood swings which affects my relationship as im always snapping.

Hello, I've been on the pill (rigivinon) now for about a year but very recently I have moved and the clinic I go to has changed, due to this they have changed my pill to microgynon. I'm good with my pill but I was late taking it and missed a day once completely by accident. Now I have been feeling incredibly tired all the time, have been feeling slightly ill, vaginal discharge has increased (sorry to be disgusting), I feel bloated and have been going to the toilet more regularly. I guess my question is do you guys think these are pregnancy symptoms and secondly would a change in the pill have a effect on the likelyhood of me falling pregnant? please get back to me soon.

Hello,
I've been having pregnancy symptoms for a few weeks, but have only just put two and two together and realized that they may all be linked. About 2-3 weeks ago i started feeling sick and the smell of some foods put me off eating all together. I also began getting the metallic taste in my mouth around the same time - and even after trying everything, i could not get rid of the taste. I have recently began getting stomach cramps and my breasts have become really sore at times. After working it out, i may be around 6 weeks pregnant...my only dilemma is that i work abroad and it will be very unprofessional if my boss begins noticing the signs and knows before i have had a chance to explain. Any advice or comments would be extremely helpful and i am very grateful that you have taken the time to read this. Thanks

Am i pregnant? or is my periods chaning now?

i had unprotected sex 9 days ago but i am on the pill and have been since i was 17 i am now 31 with no problems or changes to my period, although i did have an abnormal smear 1 yr ago and had to have the PAP smear completed which everythng was after that,the reason why i am concerned is i took my last pill in my pack last thur and i am always due to come on my peiod on the monday (this is normal for me to have such a gap from taking my last pill) however this time i was 1 day later and i have hardly had any blood it is very very light for me but i did have a little cramp on the monday but not anywhere near as to what i normally have,i have a small headache this morning (thursday) which i have read can be a first sign, so now i am getting a little concerned,however is it too early to see signs of pregnancy and am i overrecting?

Hi, do you think I could be pregnant?
My period is due anywhere between 1-4 days and I use fertility friend to chart my temps.

I had a chemical pregnancy back in April of this year and since then it has been 6 months and still haven't been able to conceive.
This cycle my breasts have gotten sorer (after my chemical they haven't been getting sore, but before my chemical they used to all the time from the day of ovulation to the day of my period), but they only just started getting sore around 8 dpo. I have also had a metallic taste in my mouth on two different days (post-ov) which I never get.

My temps have gone down slightly so is it possible that my AF is going to start or could I still very well be pregnant???

Hi unsure90 - the only way you can find out for certain is to do a pregnancy test.

You should be able to get a pregnancy test at a community contraception clinic, and some GP surgeries offer tests for free as well. You can also go to a young people's service, such as a Brook clinic, if you're under their upper age limit.

You can find contraception clinics near you via this link:

Hope this helps.

My periods are normally every 26-27 days. My last period was 31st Aug so I am now 16 days late.

I did a pregnancy test 1 week ago which was negative.

I had severe breast pain for the 1st 14 days after the start of my last period but this has now subsided. I have been feeling a little queezy & dizzy although I haven't been sick.

Do you think I'm Pregnant or simply a Menopausal Fuddy Duddy?

Me and my boyfriend have been trying for a baby for the past 2 weeks nearly and soon as we spoke about it i had stopped my Yasmin Pill as i currently have PCOS but i have had a Laporscapy and everything is fine and normal. I have had PCOS for nearly four years and it has been terrible i have lost over 4 stone over the years and it hasnt been easy, but before i stopped my pill me and my boyfriend was having unprotected sex still and the other day my temperture started riseing and i was having flushes kind of thing and being boiling hot for no reason. So we didnt think much of it but then i started having cramps and i came on my period even though it was late and it was very light compared to how it normaly is, so then through the day i was still burning up then going back to normal and then again. So the next day i was in the kitchen and felt sick all of a sudden and really light headed a neasus, and my stomach has been bloated im always tired and sleeping and tody i woke up feeling sick for about an hour and then it disappered and this afternoon its come back again and im still tired even having a lie down, me and my boyfriend has had a look at the symptons and ive got most of the signs of pregnancy includeing the ones i have said, but i dont know what too do? so am i pregnant or isit my homornes? as i am on my period and bavent taken a test yet but i have read up that you can get preg and be preg while on your period at early stages?...
sorry if it is so long, thanks for reading this x

I have been constipated and went to my GP. The Dr mentioned I could possibly be pregnant as I have had unprotected sex. Though on the day of my appointment I had just started my period and was told to take a pregnancy test after I finished. The period was very light and lasted 3 days but it seemed like any other period I normally have. I took a pregnancy test and it came out negative. I'm still constipated even though I am eating fruit/veg and drink plenty of water. With my last pregnancy when first missed my period I took a pregnancy test after my period was meant to be due and it came out negative. I took another test 3 weeks later as I was starting to get morning sickness and it was positive. Is it worth taking another test in a few weeks time incase there is still a possibilty that I may be pregnant?

if i understand the symptoms of pregnancy very well then a woman can have her egg fertized and still have her period which is painless or not irritating. I hope this statement is right.
