Symptoms of pregnancy

Some women will have symptoms from the first days after conception, even before a delay in their periods ; others a few weeks or months later, and still others have no symptoms at all.

The main symptoms of pregnancy are:

- Menstrual delay
- Breast tenderness or swelling
- Nausea, dizziness
- Fatigue, drowsiness
- More frequent urination
- Stretching in the lower abdomen
- Weight gain or loss
- Mood changes
- "Feeling pregnant"

Certain pregnancy symptoms can resemble premenstrual syndrome (PMS). With a late period, it is better to wait until it is 5 days late before taking a pregnancy test, so the results will be conclusive.
