Symptoms of Pregnancy in the First Week

Think of a naughty being, multiply by 10 and you will have the result: it is the woman who wants to get pregnant! As soon as menstruation is over, you start to feel everything that is a symptom. Sometimes they are true symptoms, sometimes they may just be signs of  tentative anxiety . But the symptoms of pregnancy in the first week may not be as evident as so many women report did you know?

Usually the symptoms that appear first are not even of pregnancy! They want to hit me when I say that, but it’s the truth. People swear they are feeling everything, absolutely everything that a pregnant woman feels. The most recurrent symptoms reported to this person writing to you are:

Possible Symptoms

  • Asia
  • Craving
  • Sickness
  • Headaches
  • Lack or excess of appetite
  • Pain in the breasts (pointed nipple, swollen and or heavy sinus)
  • Swollen belly
  • Stitches in the lower abdomen
  • Too much pee (feeling full of a bladder constantly)

These are just the recurring ones, but there is a very long list of alleged pregnancy symptoms in the first or second week. The problem is that the vast majority of women who want to become pregnant take these symptoms to the letter. That is why it is very important to stress that these first symptoms may be (and 99% of the cases are) post-ovulation, so they cannot even be confirmed as the first week of pregnancy. Normally when a woman ovulates, a differentiated hormonal activity begins in the body.

IMPORTANT: Many women, moved by the emotion and anxiety of becoming pregnant, may begin to experience psychological symptoms. There are many cases of psychological pregnancy where even the belly grows.

The increase in progesterone can bring all the symptoms and even more because it is the same hormones that a pregnant woman has in just as much, but in excess. Therefore, the symptoms in the first week of pregnancy are not so suspicious and why not say disposable. Don’t take them too seriously and don’t rush to spend on a pregnancy test ! No dear friend, it is reality. The problem with clinging to symptoms is that they may not be of pregnancy. Of course, some are and fortunately are pregnant! However, not everyone is a sign that there is a baby on the way and that there is danger.

Can you imagine being filled with hope based on the symptoms before menstruation arrives, and suddenly come face to face with the door? That is why the maxim that one should wait for the correct date to verify the existence of a pregnancy is recurrent advice here at TF.

The corpus luteum has more intense activity when fertilization takes place. Recent research indicates that the blastocyst has an enzyme that influences the behavior of the corpus luteum , it will secrete even more progesterone to thicken the endometrium and then facilitate pregnancy to happen. If your symptoms are very intense, there may have been fertilization, but there is a long way between fertilization and the pregnancy itself. Then wait to be able to confirm that you are already going through the first week of pregnancy.

The egg can be fertilized by the sperm, but not implanted correctly. If this happens, menstruation will come even if the symptoms are severe. So the need to wait longer. From suffering so much with negatives I learned that waiting is the best solution to avoid hassles.

A tip for our readers and experimenters is to use the lubricating gel FamiGel , which in addition to increasing vaginal lubrication providing more pleasure in sexual intercourse, faithfully plays the role of fertile mucus, controlling vaginal pH increasing the survival of sperm and helping them to arrive more easily to the egg. You can buy it here in our online store.

Are the Symptoms in the First Week All False?

No! It is worth remembering that the woman may experience symptoms similar to those of pregnancy, but they are not necessarily of pregnancy and therefore, wait. If they remain or even increase , then try it out. A nice deadline for having a safe result is 5 days late or 25 days after intercourse. You can buy your Famivita high sensitivity pregnancy test here in our online store.

I also have to say that after the start of the manufacture of HCG (exclusive hormone of pregnancy) the symptoms tend to increase significantly. HCG further stimulates the corpus luteum by causing it to increase progesterone production to help keep pregnancy safe.

Bleeding in the First Week

The problem is when bleeding happens in the first few weeks . But how do you know if I’m in the first week? And this can be one of the symptoms of pregnancy in the first week, such a nesting . But it can also be a sign that your body needs a helping hand with hormone production In these specific cases, it would be better to consult with the obstetrician and of course, know that even if he asks for an ultrasound , you still run the risk of not being able to see anything since the pregnancy is very recent, less than 5 weeks . The first symptoms of pregnancy in the first week of pregnancy are not symptoms of pregnancy!

This is very interesting, isn’t it? They are similar because it is caused by the same hormone that causes these symptoms to be present. I just advise: have a little patience and if you persist after the menstrual delay , do a test and good luck!

Questions from Readers:

Can ovulation inducer cause symptoms that confuse with pregnancy?

Yes, the use of inducers can cause some symptoms that are easily confused with the symptoms of pregnancy, as in the case of Indux which can offer abdominal bloating, a feeling of full stomach, weight gain and in some cases more isolated even nausea.

Is nipple pain a symptom of pregnancy in the first week?

The pain in the nipple as well as the increase in the sensitivity of the whole breast is quite normal both in early pregnancy and in PMS ( premenstrual tension), therefore it cannot be taken into account as a main symptom since it can be a sign of menstruation coming.

My name is Dr. Alexis Hart I am 38 years old, I am the mother of 3 beautiful children! Different ages, different phases 16 years, 12 years and 7 years. In love with motherhood since always, I found it difficult to make my dreams come true, and also some more after I was already a mother.

Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
