Re: earliest possible signs

There are so many and not everyone experiences them all if any! I suggest you pop on the internet and research! For me it was sore breasts and increased appetite. If you suspect you are pregnant, wait until the day after you should get your period and do a hpt. If you don't want to wait that long you can call your Dr and get a blood test done. They are usually more accurate earlier on.

Re: earliest possible signs

Well for me, the earliest sign was a missed period. Even then I was sort of stunned because I didn't feel pregnant. My symptoms didn't kick in until around 7 or 8 weeks. By then I had known for about a month.

BUT, for some women it's sore/swollen breasts, nausea, constipation, bloating, extreme tiredness, cravings, increased or decreased appetite, food aversions, mild cramping, etc.

If you know when you should get period, then do a HPT around that time. There are early detection tests, but for some women it's more reliable to wait for the missed period. If you don't know when you're supposed to get your period but you feel pregnant, do a test now. If it's negative but you still feel pregnant, test again in a week. If it's still negative then go to the doctor and talk about the symptoms and possible diagnostic testing.

A pregnancy is not the only thing that can cause these symptoms. These symptoms are from the HORMONES associated with pregnancy, and wonky hormones from other problems, like polycystic ovaries, can cause odd symptoms as well.

Re: earliest possible signs

My signs were the same as my PMS. The only thing thatwas different is that I didn't get the pre-cramps. I didn't get M/S until I went on prenatal pills.

Re: earliest possible signs

For me, it was up in the night to pee and the heavy feeling of a brick in my low abdomen all before I was late.

Hope you get the outcome you want!!

Cheers - Barbara

Re: earliest possible signs

thanks everybody...I sincerely hope that I am pregnant although right now it's just a feeling, maybe some mild cramps...I was never one to keep track of my periods, although I know that the first day of my last period was Oct 15th, and I think I may have gotten pregnant on the 29th.
Here's hoping!!
