Am I Pregnant? How Soon Can I Have Symptoms

how soon can i experience pregnancy symptoms

Yes or no?

OK, I wasn't marking the days on a calendar at the time but, I swear, when I was pregnant, I had symptoms almost immediately.

Miss_cecilia, with a number of possible preggo signs herself, asked moms in Pregnancy if it was too early to be experiencing symptoms.


She had sore boobs, nausea, and specific food cravings that she'd had with her first pregnancy, but wasn't due to start her period for another week.

According to the American Pregnancy Association, women can experience "signs or symptoms or pregnancy within a week of conception." Not all do, though. It varies from woman to woman and even pregnancy to pregnancy -- some women won't experience symptoms for several weeks and in others symptoms may not appear at all.

(That's right -- some lucky gals even sail through without any morning sickness at all! That is so not fair.)

Things to be on the lookout for:

Implantation bleeding

Your period, MIA

Tender breasts





Food cravings
