Now lets see all the symptoms in detail

Spotting or mild cramping

From week 1 to week 4, everything is still happening at the cellular level. A fertilized egg forms a blastocyst that develops into the organs and body parts of the fetus.

About 10 to 14 days (week 4) after conception, the blastocyst implants into the endometrium, which is the lining of the uterus. This can cause implantation bleeding that can be mistaken for a light period. This doesn't happen to everyone. If this happens, it will usually happen around the time you expect your period.

lets see some signs of implantation bleeding

Implantation bleeding is much less than your normal period. 

It has a light pinkish color that we can describe as light spotting. 

It will never turn into a flow so you need to use a tampon.

Implant bleeding may last for a few hours to some times a day or two.

Pain will be less or moderate but different from your regular period cramps.

Mood Swings

As blastocyst implants into your lining of the uterus, your body starts producing estrogen and progesterone hormones in huge amounts. These hormones increase throughout our pregnancy phase. This increase in hormones may affect your mood and makes you more emotional than before.

Morning Sickness

During the 1st trimester of your pregnancy, you may experience mild or severe morning sickness. Some of the women may experience evening sickness too.

As your pregnancy grows it may become more intense and gradually decrease with the end of 1st trimester and it vanishes completely with the onset of 2nd trimester.

Low on Energy

Feeling low on energy is so common during your entire pregnancy phase. But this sudden low feeling after your ovulation days may be an early sign of pregnancy.

Motion Sickness

Normally, while traveling you may never feel sick to motion, but sudden changes like you feel sick during traveling or feeling dizzy. These symptoms may be because of the sudden rise in your hormones. If you are sure that you did not have any motion sickness before, but suddenly you started feeling so, it means you are having good news!

Breast Tenderness

You may notice some changes like color change, softness, sourness and a little itchy. This all is because of an increase in the level of hormones.

But this will gradually go when your body will adjust to these increases of hormones.

Weight Gain

It is completely normal to have 15 to 20kgs weight gain throughout your pregnancy. This starts from the day your blastocyst implants into the endometrium. You may notice this after a week or two. 


Hormones cause the valve between your stomach and food pipe to relax. This process allows stomach acid to leak which leads to heartburn. To avoid, you may have small portions of your food at a time. Have food easy to digest. Sit upright for at least an hour after having your meal.

Smell Sensitivity

The sense of smell is a symptom of early pregnancy and is mostly self-reported. It can cause nausea and vomiting if you are sensitive to the sense of smell. It can also cause a strong dislike of certain foods.

The sense of smell may increase or decrease during pregnancy. This is especially common in the first and third semesters. Smells that were previously unnoticeable can be unpleasant or nauseous.

Frequent Urination

During pregnancy, your body increases the amount of blood it pumps. This causes the kidneys to process more fluid than usual, leading to more fluid in the bladder.


Your body goes through significant changes at the beginning of pregnancy. You may see symptoms like nausea, breast tenderness, an d of course the signature symptom of missed periods.

If you think you might be pregnant, a good first step is to take a home pregnancy test. These tests are commonly available without a prescription in pharmacies and other shops.

If you get a positive result, call your doctor for an appointment. They will do an examination and another test to confirm your pregnancy. Then you can start a prenatal program to protect the health of you and the fetus.
