Early Pregnancy Signs & Common Symptoms

Although the earliest signs of pregnancy vary from woman to woman and pregnancy to pregnancy, some of the more common symptoms include:

  • Missed or late period
  • Tender breasts
  • Nausea (with or without vomiting)
  • Fatigue or unusual tiredness
  • Spotting
  • Cramps
  • Bloating
  • Constipation
  • Appetite change
  • Thirstiness
  • Food or odor aversions
  • Frequent urination
  • Heartburn
  • Indigestion
  • Minor aches, pains or discomforts
  • Headaches
  • Bleeding gums when brushing or flossing teeth
  • Being emotional or teary

Understanding the signs and symptoms of pregnancy is important because each symptom may be related to something other than pregnancy. Just because you’re experiencing some of these signs doesn’t necessarily mean you’re pregnant. The only way to know for sure is to get a pregnancy test.

Life Options provides free pregnancy testing using laboratory-quality urine tests, which can detect pregnancy as early as 7 days after conception.  If your test is positive, free pregnancy dating by ultrasound is also available at our Grandview & Sunnyside clinics or on our mobile unit (serving Toppenish, Mattawa, & Mabton). All services are free & confidential.

If this pregnancy wasn’t in your plans, there’s no better place to face unplanned pregnancy than in the supportive environment of Life Options, with a wealth of resources at your fingertips.  You will find caring medical professionals and client advocates who are ready to serve you with compassion, provide you with accurate information, and listen to your concerns.

The important thing to know is that you’re not alone. We’re here to help.
