Common Signs of Pregnancy

For all women, pregnancy will provide unique experiences with varying symptoms. The most significant similarity and sign among all women that might indicate pregnancy is a missed period. However, some women will know even sooner because within 6-12 days after conception, the embryo implants itself into the uterine wall which causes spotting, thus implantation bleeding is also an early pregnancy symptom. Swollen and tender breasts, nausea and vomiting, fatigue, backaches, headaches and frequent urination are some of the most common signs of pregnancy. At-home pregnancy tests will be able to tell if a woman is pregnant and most of these tests are very reliable.  For a woman who thinks she is pregnant, an appointment should be made with her doctor so that prenatal care can begin immediately.
