My first pregnancy symptoms
Had no period for a month.Anytime I smelled something not so pleasant, or when I brushed my teeth, I would gag. Major morning sickness 'til around 12 weeks.
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. Or your breasts might feel fuller and heavier.
Nausea with or without vomiting.
Morning sickness, which can strike at any time of the day or night, sometimes begins as early as three weeks after conception. While the cause of nausea during pregnancy isn't clear, pregnancy hormones likely play a role. Pregnant women might also find that smells that never bothered them before now cause nausea.
Increased urination. You might find yourself urinating more often than usual.
Fatigue. Fatigue also ranks high among early symptoms of pregnancy. During early pregnancy, levels of the hormone progesterone soar — which can make you feel sleepy.
Cramping. Some women experience mild uterine cramping early in pregnancy.
Mood swings. The flood of hormones in your body in early pregnancy can make you unusually emotional and weepy. Mood swings also are common.
Dizziness. Pregnancy causes your blood vessels to dilate and your blood pressure to drop. As a result, you might find yourself feeling lightheaded or dizzy.
Constipation. Hormonal changes cause your digestive system to slow down, which can lead to constipation.
