When do pregnancy symptoms start acting up

Some women seem to know they are pregnant from the moment of conception; others have very early signs that tip them off. As hormone levels increase rapidly during very early pregnancy your body will start to go through a lot of changes. Some women start to feel symptoms as early as implantation when the embryo attaches itself to the uterus (6-12 days after ovulation). Others will begin to feel symptoms around when they period is due (12-14 days past ovulation).

  • Well, I experienced sore breasts & enlarged breasts about 7dpo. Also an increase in cervical mucus of a yellowish creamy color. I also had just a "feeling" that i was pregnant but nothing until about 7 dpo. 

  • I had tender breasts, tiredness, period like cramping about 5-6dpo. Felt different from normal, had a feeling i was pregnant.

Women usually show signs of pregnancy once the Embryo has implanted in the Uterus and started releasing HCG. This occurs around 8-12 days after sex. During this time women also experience implantation bleeding.

Late bloomers experience symptoms later in pregnancy. Usually after they've missed a period.

Hi i am a 30 year old married woman...i normally have a cycle of 28-29-30-31 days..(varies from month to month) but even if my cycles are not dot 28 days, it has never happened to me that i have missed my periods (though they come late.. BUT THEY DO COME !!) My question is , this month (jan 2014) i did not get my periods YET.. my last period came on 22/12/13..so in this month it should have come on 18th / 19th / 20th Jan14.. right? BUT IT HASN'T YET COME... we never had unprotected sex during ovulation..which is as per my knowledge should be between 2nd jan - 6th jan 14 (hope i am rite) .... yes we had unprotected sex on 14th or 15th jan (don't remember clearly now).... i did home preg. test twice..one on 23/1/14 & another on 25/1/14 ..BOTH NEGATIVE... we both are really worried now.. What might be the cause of this?? what are the chances that i am pregnant?? when should i do the next preg. test? will beta hCG blood test help me to clear the confusion? IF i am NOT preg. then what are the possibilities of Thyroid & PCOS? Kindly ans me as soon as possible... Thank you
