The early signs and symptoms of pregnancy can be confusing and easily mistaken for those same symptoms you experience just before getting your period. If you have menstrual cycles that are as regular as clockwork, a missed period is usually one of your first signs. Here are some other very early signs and symptoms of pregnancy to help you figure out what’s going on with your body.
These symptoms can begin to appear as early as 6 days after conception and are often the result of hormone changes. Estrogen and Progesterone are the major hormones working to maintain a pregnancy, and their effect throughout your whole body is noticeable.
Most urine pregnancy tests will show positive results as early as one day after your expected missed period (assuming you have regular menstrual cycles). The drugstore varieties are usually inexpensive and reliable. Take the test with your first bathroom visit in the morning, when your hormone levels are high and not diluted. The test results could be life-changing—share your news with someone you love and trust!
