Pregnancy Symptoms Early:
The early symptoms of pregnancy vary from woman to woman and even from pregnancy to pregnancy. So not every woman has the same symptoms or even the same symptoms from one pregnancy to the next. Also, because the early symptoms of pregnancy often resemble what happens right before and during menstruation, you may have some of the symptoms and not recognize them.
What follows is a description of some of the most common early symptoms of pregnancy. It’s important to keep in mind that the symptoms may be caused by other things besides being pregnant. So the fact that you notice some of these symptoms does not necessarily mean you are pregnant. The only way to tell for sure is with a test.
Early Symptom of Pregnancy: Spotting and Cramping
A few days after conception, the fertilized egg attaches itself to the uterine wall. This can cause one of the earliest signs of pregnancy — spotting and, sometimes, cramping. Known as implantation bleeding, this early symptom occurs anywhere from six to 12 days after the egg is fertilized.
The cramps resemble menstrual cramps, and some women mistake them and the bleeding for the start of their period. The bleeding and cramps, however, are slight. Other things that can cause this symptom include the actual start of menstruation, altered menstruation, using a different birth control pill, infection, or abrasion from intercourse.
In addition to bleeding, you may notice a white, milky discharge from your vagina. This is related to the fact that, almost immediately after conception, the vaginal walls begin to thicken. It is the increased growth of cells lining the vagina that causes the discharge. This discharge can continue throughout your pregnancy, but typically it’s harmless and doesn’t require treatment. However, if you notice a foul odor to the discharge or a burning and itching sensation, you should contact your doctor. These could be signs of a yeast or bacterial infection.
pregnancy symptoms before missed period:
Question: Did You Have Pregnancy Symptoms Before Missed Period?
Answer: There are a number of reasons one might experience pregnancy symptoms before a missed period. This is largely due to hormonal shifts in the body before your missed period is noted. As you have heard early pregnancy tests are testing even before a missed period, and this means that the pregnancy hormones are swirling, particularly hCG, even though in very low concentrations.
Women who are very in tune with their bodies or who are very sensitive may be able to notice these slight differences. You may feel pregnancy fatigue or even morning sickness.
You may also find that if someone has an irregular periods that it may be harder to figure out when they are pregnant without the regular cycle signs. Or you may see that someone has break through bleeding in pregnancy and her pregnancy is not as quickly diagnosed either due to irregular bleeding. This may mean she has pregnancy symptoms but misses them for awhile, assuming they are from another cause like illness or stress. Once she figures out that these symptoms may be caused by pregnancy, she may be confused because she has not had a missed period.
Pregnancy 10 Days After Conception:
What is a pregnancy blood test?
A pregnancy blood test or a pregnancy serum test is a test that measures the exact amount of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) in the bloodstream of a woman. If there is a sufficient amount of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), then the test is returned positive. This means that you are pregnant. If however, there is an inadequate amount of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) in your blood, the test results are negative. And this means that conception has not occurred.
Is 10 days after conception too early for a reliable blood test?
Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a hormone that is produced by the placenta of women who are pregnant. It is detectable in the blood and urine only within 10 days of fertilization. All blood tests can give you reliable results only after these first 10 days. After the fertilized egg implants, or attaches, to the inside of the uterus or other structure inside the mother, the levels of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) rise rapidly. The levels continue to increase throughout the first trimester of pregnancy and reach a peak 60 to 80 days after the fertilized egg implants.
What signs should I look out for to help me with early pregnancy detection?
If you are trying to get pregnant, your anxiety about finding out whether or not you are pregnant is only natural. Though blood pregnancy tests have their limitation, there are many ways of assessing pregnancy at an early stage. Some of the most commonly applied techniques for assessing pregnancies are looking out for the various signs that are a sure give away. Here are some of the most common and early symptoms of pregnancy:
A missed period is the first sure sign of pregnancy.
Sore breasts or darkened areolas.
Implantation bleeding or a brownish discharge.
Morning sickness or nausea.
High basal body temperature.
Fatigue and a dull feeling.
Food cravings and binges.
Seeing spots before eyes.
