10 Early Pregnancy Symptoms

10 Early Pregnancy Symptoms

Alright, we know you are dying to figure out if you might be pregnant. But before you start scrolling the list of potential symptoms, there are a few things you need to keep in mind:  First, the only way to know for sure that you are pregnant is by taking a pregnancy test or getting a blood test. We know all to well, that if you have been trying to conceive for a while, the two week wait can seem endless. You’re probably hyper aware of every little twinge, cramp or body ache and wonder if it means you’ll soon see a big fat positive. But remember many early pregnancy symptoms are very similar- if not the same as pre-menstrual symptoms. Okay – now you can start scrolling our list – and good luck!

TTC trying to conceive ovulation symptoms

After conception the fertilized egg implants itself to the wall of the uterus. This can cause light bleeding, which is pink, red or even brown discharge. You might also feel some light cramping similar to what you feel during your period – but not as intense.Implantation bleeding happens sometime between six and 12 days after fertilization. So, if it happens, you’d notice it before your period is due- around five to ten days after conception.
