Unfortunately, there are no symptoms of pregnancy that will show up just the day after conception to let you know that you have conceived.

symptomps of pregnancy

Pregnancy symptoms do not appear until first week after conception. If, however, you have been trying to conceive from the last few days, you will often find yourself suspecting pregnancy. The only sure shot way to detect pregnancy is to take a home pregnancy test, which takes a minute to give the result. Other than home pregnancy test, your intuitions may reveal the ‘good’ news.

 

Mood Swings

Many earliest symptoms of pregnancy usually mimic symptoms experienced before menstruation. Moodiness is commonly experienced by many women just after conception. A pregnant woman may feel elation, anger or sadness without any concrete reason very early after fertilisation. This is due to the hormonal changes that begin soon after conception.


Nausea

This symptom usually appears in the middle of the first month of pregnancy, however, some sensitive women may experience it immediately after fertilisation. Feeling of sickness is associated with changed levels of estrogens that also make a pregnant woman sensitive to smell.

 

Breast Changes

Very soon after conception, a woman can register changes in her breasts. The rising level of hormones increases blood flow resulting in changes in the breast tissue. Due to this, a pregnant woman may notice slight changes in her breasts and nipples. Initially, the nipples will become sensitive and little sore. As the gestation period expands, even touching the nipples may cause pain.

 

Headache

As soon as fertilisation takes place, the new surge of hormones begins. Soon after pregnancy, the hormone levels increase and change the rate of blood circulation, contributing to headaches.

 

Other Symptoms

  • Missed period is a noticeable sign of pregnancy.
  • Uneasiness and anxiety.  
  • Morning sickness, nausea and constipation.
  • Extremes of emotions.
  • Abdominal cramps and smell sensitivity.
  • Increased breast size.
  • Certain food cravings.
  • Increased body temperature.
  • Pigmentation in fingernails or toenails.
  • Swelling of breasts.
  • Weight Gain due to growing foetus.
  • Backache.
  • Increased appetite.
  • Digestive problems.
  • Increased urination.

 

 

Your pregnancy signs and symptoms only appear after the first week of fertilisation or 1-2 weeks after your missed period. Your first signs of pregnancy most commonly include missed period, tender/swollen breasts, change in colour of the breasts, fatigue, vomiting, sensitivity to strong smell and weight gain. You may also, however, believe in your intuitions, but remember to take a home pregnancy test to confirm conception.
