This Is the Information I Found the Other Week.....
The first symptoms and the time of their appearance are listed here:
• temperature drop (dip) on implantation day
• implantation bleeding or spotting: (a slight staining of a pink or brown color on average 8-10 days after ovulation)
• lower abdominal cramps
• a positive blood hcg pregnancy test: about 10 days after fertilization/ovulation
• an elevated bbt curve for 15+ days without a menstrual period
• a missed menstrual period (amenorrhea)
• a positive urine pregnancy test (hpt): as early as 10-14 days after ovulation/fertilization or 3-4 days after implantation. The more sensitive the hpt the earlier the pregnancy test will be positive
• nausea: as early as 2-4 weeks after ovulation (brjobgyn 1989b;96:1304)
• nipple or breast tenderness: 3-4 weeks after conception
• fatigue: 3-10 weeks after conception
• vomiting: 3-10 weeks after conception
• food cravings: 1-2 months after conception
• frequent urination: usually after 1-2 months
• softening of cervix: usually not before 6 weeks after lmp
• constipation: later on
• lower-back pain: later on
• darkening of areola (area around breast nipple): after 14 weeks
• fetal heartbeat on sonogram: 8-9 weeks after conception
• fetal movements: 16+ weeks after conception


i don't know whether this is gospel as alot of sites have different information. This isn't from personal experience - unfortunately!!!!

Good luck
xx

I knew I was pregnant for the first time SIX DAYS after conception. The reason that I knew is because I apparently am in tune with my body. My breasts started hurting and although my period was right around the corner, two weeks away,, this was not a normal symptom for me. I am always paranoid about being pregnant so whenever my breasts hurt, I'd squeeze them as though a baby were sucking on them to see if anything came out. Nothing ever did, until this time.

A few days later hoping that this was something that I had overlooked in the past, I noticed abdominal aches and ovarian pains, similar to those warning that my period was coming. I also saw spots of blood mixed with vaginal discharge. I took this as a sign that my period was coming. It never did. I took a pregnancy test two days after my period was due and, alas, I was indeed pregnant. Turns out I ovulated six days earlier than the calendar predicted, so in actuality, I tested about a week after my predicted period. It was a quick positive, as soon as the urine passed the window.

I honestly think that a woman knows deep inside that she is pregnant, whether she is hoping it is true or whether she is praying that she isn't. If she "listens" to her body, she will notice subtle changes with it and from then on, it's just a matter of testing and decision-making for the future of that baby. Hope this helps!

Incase you haven't noticed, we are in a whole new generation. This isn't the 1900's anymore. Ppl are having sex and getting pregnant as young as 12 years old. I'm not saying its ok but its happening. Your response to this 16 year old teen isn't helpful at all. Try being more supportive and if im not mistaken she is looking for proper advice, not critism.

im 16 I have sex all the time! I'm always protected except the fact that our condom had a hole in it. We had sex on Monday, it's now saterday (Christmas eve).. Only one of my boobs hurt right now, yesterday I had a little cramping which were band enough that they sent pains shooting down my legs (like my period usually does). I got really naseus from eating apple bees noodles that were spicy, Also I've been peeing so much! Is it possible? I need an actually comment from the nice people above not a snotty comment (:

Hang in there
My sister also got pregnant at 16, she is not a bad person and she is a good mommy, so girl you should take a p test and see what it says. sometimes it could be in your head.. My sister-in-law is going through the same and thats what we are gonna do first p test... then see what it says and if she still dont start we will go get a HCG test then if you are get some family support and if you dont have that hit me up on facebook, cuz I myself needed support and oneway or another you will have it. look me up its Charity Gray... Good Luck and God Bless

Could I be pregnant?
Hi, I had first-time sex the other day and I have been noticing some symptoms and am worried that I could be pregnant. The night after I had sex, I went to the bathroom, and noticed some blood when I wiped, but it's not my period. My vagina has been rather sore. I've had lower back pain for about a week now. And my abdomen has been hurting. I have some sharp pain right over my left ovary. I noticed some of these symptoms the day after I had sex. Could I be pregnant, or is this possibly a cyst?

Everyone is pretty much asking the same thing, and I pretty much am having the same symptoms...lower back pain, slight cramping, abdominal pain, headaches. I'm just wondering if I could be having pregnancy symptoms already? I had sex sunday night, I was ovulating, and now its tuesday and I'm feeling these symptoms. Is it too soon to tell? Or could these be super early pregnancy signs?

I have sex with my husband after sept 16. Right when i was done with my period. I had sex everyday ever since sept.16 and everytime My husband came. We are trying to get pregnant but failed for the last 2 yrs. Last week on sept. 22nd i started to feel breast tenderness. I thought i would get my period this week but end up i didn't. Everytime i have breast tenderness I would get my period the following week. But my breast still hurts badly. Could it be that I am pregnant or is it too soon to know? Should i take a test?. Beginning saturday i had started feeling like i want to vomit, can't eat, but craving for everything i see.

I missed my period, it was supposed to come on Friday, its now Sunday, and i took a test, it came back negative. The last time i was ovulating was well over 2 weeks ago, and I did have unprotected sex with my boyfriend. I also have been getting some of the abdominal pains, dizziness, frequent urination, strange dreams, EXTREME mood changes, but no breat tenderness or nausea. but isn't 2 weeks long enough for a positive read? why else could i have missed my period?? I'm hoping to be pregnant, but i hear those tests are pretty accurate.

Go to your GP and get a blood test - not all chemist pregnancy tests are fully accurate.

Hi my period is 6 days late and I really havent been experiencing any symptoms. I had sex one month ago unprotected but then took the Plan b pill the next day. Then 3 weeks ago i had sex but with a condom this time and now I see my period hasnt came. Im thinking maybe it could be from stress but I have no idea. My breasts arent tender or anything so Im kind of scared..

Personally I think its stress cause the Plan B works for sure as long as u took it within the 72 hours. You said u took it the next day so u should be fine for sure. Plus u had protected sex the last time so unless the condom poped or Ur partner put a whole in it without u knowing ...you shouldn't be pregnant. The stress is affecting Ur period. Or either Ur menstrual cycle is changing.
