What are early pregnancy symptoms?

Typical early signs of pregnancy can include:

 

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Missed period
  • Breast tenderness
  • Feeling tired
  • Frequent urination
  • Mood swings1

 

The presence of these symptoms does not necessarily mean that a woman is pregnant.  Only a licensed medical professional is legally authorized to diagnose pregnancy.

How soon can I take a pregnancy test?

Pregnancy tests detect the presence of pregnancy hormones in the blood or urine.  Common over-the-counter urine pregnancy tests can detect pregnancy hormone at the time a woman misses her period. 

 

A positive pregnancy test does not guarantee that a woman is pregnant.  Pregnancy tests are not always accurate; false negative and false positive test results do occur.  It is possible to have a positive pregnancy test and not be pregnant, and it is also possible to have a negative pregnancy test yet actually be pregnant.

 

The only way to find out for sure if a woman is pregnant is to have an ultrasound exam.  An ultrasound can show if there is a growing pregnancy, if the baby is in the uterus, if the baby has a heartbeat, and about how far along the pregnancy has developed.
