Questions about pregnancy

Well this is for my girlfriend. How early can you start showing signs or symptoms of pregnancy? Would you gain any weight your first month or anything? Thanks

I doubt she would gain much weight in the first month as if she is pregnant then the baby would be just multiplying cells at this stage.

If she thinks she's pregnant then she should do a test.

Re: Questions about pregnancy

[iloveryan is very wrong. My sister and I both started showing around 2 months. I started looking very bloated around 6 weeks. But Im also a small person. Try going to [deleted] and [deleted] They're great sites about pregnancy.

The only usual symptom that shows up in the first 4 weeks is the missed period. Weight gain, nausea, etc., don't usually show up until later (if at all, in the case of nausea). Generally 3,4 months for obvious weight gain. Anything earlier is usually a hormonal and appetite change because as Kwackers pointed out, there's hardly anything there yet. Mommy2An_Angel's statement that 'iloveryan is very wrong' is actually misleading because she herself said she was looking bloated at 6 weeks. So, still nothing in the first month.

Also, a lot of women gain weight (water weight) before their periods. Hardly a sign of pregnancy.
