Signs of Pregnancy Before Missed Period

first signs of pregnancyThe very early signs of pregnancy before missed period can be subtle, and they can also strike one or two weeks before your menstrual period is scheduled to arrive.

Though a missed period is often the first clue that you have a bun in the oven, it’s not the only pregnancy sign you may notice. From implantation bleeding and cramping to extreme exhaustion, there are a number of very early signs of pregnancy that may pop up in the weeks leading up to your period.

Most women won’t notice these early pregnancy symptoms, but if you are trying to conceive, you may notice slight differences. For example, your pregnancy fatigue can be easily mistaken for PMS fatigue by some women, but women who are in tune with their body may notice that this fatigue feels different.

Implantation Bleeding and Cramping – the First Signs of Pregnancy

If you had unprotected sex during your fertile window (around the week you ovulated), there is always a possibility that you got knocked up. If this is the case, you may notice some menstrual cramps and even some light bleeding or spotting a week or two before your missed period. The symptoms you’re experiencing are implantation bleeding and cramping. Not all pregnant women experience them, but when they do occur, they are the very first pregnancy signs you’ll notice.

Implantation occurs when the fertilized egg attaches to your uterine wall. Your future baby is only a little ball of cells at this point – called the blastocyst, which is made up of an outer cell mass (the trophectoderm) that will develop into the placenta (the organ that will deliver oxygen and nutrients to the developing baby during your pregnancy) and an inner cell mass that will become the embryo (your baby).

When the fertilized egg implants in your uterus, you may notice implantation symptoms  – like spotting and cramping.

Implantation bleeding is light. You may notice a drop or two of blood in your underwear, or when you wipe after using the bathroom. It should only last hours to several days (at the most). Heavy vaginal bleeding is probably your period or a miscarriage. (Implantation bleeding is not heavy. So if you are worried about the amount of vaginal bleeding you are experiencing, contact your doctor or healthcare provider.)

Similarly, implantation cramping is also brief, lasting only a couple of days. After implantation has occurred, these very first signs of pregnancy before a missed period will disappear.

Implantation takes place between six to ten days after ovulation, so if you have a regular 28-day cycle, you may experience implantation bleeding and cramps during the third week of your cycle (day 20 to 24) – roughly a week or so before your missed period.

Very Early Signs of Pregnancy

In addition to your implantation symptoms, other signs of pregnancy before missed period include a rise in your basal body temperature (BBT),

1. Elevated Basal Body Temperature – One of the early signs of pregnancy before missed period is an elevated basal body temperature. Your BBT is only an accurate sign of pregnancy when you’ve been charting it for at least several months, and understand it’s normal rhythm.

Many women trying to conceive track their basal body temperature to help pinpoint when they ovulate. Before ovulation (week one and two of your menstrual cycle), your BBT will range somewhere between 97.2 and 97.7 degrees Fahrenheit. These temperatures are average BBTs for the pre-ovulation period.

Within one or two days after you ovulate, you will notice a spike in your basal body temperature of 0.4 to 1.0 degree. Your BBT goes back down once you have your period. However, if you are pregnant, your basal body temperature will remain elevated.

A one-day drop in your BBT the week after you ovulate (six to ten days after ovulation) is called an implantation dip, and it can mean that your baby has implanted in your womb.

Keep in mind that your basal body temperature can spike throughout your menstrual cycle, but if you notice that your temperature remains elevated, this is a sign you’re pregnant.

2. Fatigue – Unexplained fatigue can be one of the first pregnancy signs, even before you miss a period. If you are constantly tired for no reason, this might be a sign that you are pregnant.

There’s a dramatic increase in the hormone progesterone in early pregnancy, and this can make you sleepy and very tired all the time. Plus, think of all the changes occurring in your body. For one thing, you have double the amount of blood during pregnancy, to help support the growth of your developing baby, and this increased blood production can really sap your energy, especially if you aren’t getting enough fluids, iron, or B-vitamins in your regular diet.

So if you think you might be pregnant, it’s a really good idea to start taking prenatal vitamins daily.

If you are feeling very tired, try not to cope with caffeine. Take it easy and get enough sleep to help combat your exhaustion.

Keep in mind that fatigue can be caused by other health conditions, such as hypothyroidism, anemia, or an illness, so don’t automatically assume you’re pregnant based on this symptom alone.

3. Sore, Tender and Heavy Breasts – Breast changes are another very early sign of pregnancy. From the second you conceive, hormones send signals to your breasts to start changing – to get ready for breastfeeding in 40 weeks!

In the very early stages of pregnancy, the blood vessels in your breasts will dilate and grow. Your breasts will get larger (a perk for smaller breasted women), but as they grow, the areolas – the dark circles around your nipples – are also going to get bigger and darken in color. Women usually start noticing their bras getting tighter at 6 to 8 weeks of pregnancy – or a few weeks after they’ve missed their period.

In the early weeks of pregnancy, or even right after you conceive, before your missed period, a pregnancy symptom you might notice is tingly, sore, and swollen breasts. Your breasts might even feel heavy and uncomfortable. They may be sore to touch. This early pregnancy sign is similar to how your breasts may feel during PMS, but it can feel much worse.

If you’re noticing breast changes, make sure you take a home pregnancy test when your period is late and doesn’t show up.

4. Bloating and Pants Feel Tight – One of the early, early signs of pregnancy is bloating. Your stomach might pooch out; your pants might feel a little too tight. You may have to unbutton the top of your pants to be able to breathe a little easier. You might even start to look pregnant, even though your baby is only a blastocyst – or a ball of cells right now – and your uterus is still pretty tiny. Bloating can definitely make you start to show early.

Feeling bloated, or heaviness in your stomach can be uncomfortable, but it’s definitely a very common pregnancy sign before a missed period. You can blame the hormone progesterone for this symptom.

It can be pretty common for gas (burps and farts) to accompany early pregnancy bloating. The hormone progesterone can slow down your digestion and cause all sorts of digestive issues – including constipation and flatulence, especially after eating a large meal.

If you are feeling boated, it might help to eat smaller meals throughout the day – it’s easier on your body to digest these foods, rather than eating a huge meal at once. Eating healthier foods and avoiding fatty and fried foods can also help you feel less bloated.

5. Nausea – Feeling nauseous is a classic early pregnancy sign, called morning sickness. It can strike as early as the week of your missed period, before some women even know they are pregnant. You might feel sick, dizzy, and just overall pukey. Not all women will throw up (nausea can occur with or without vomiting), but it’s not a fun feeling.

Though it’s called morning sickness, your queasiness can strike anytime of the day or night, but women often report that it’s worse in the first hours after they wake up. An estimated 75% of women will experience some form of morning sickness when they are pregnant, though the severity of the symptoms varies from woman to woman and pregnancy to pregnancy. It is said to be worse in first pregnancies, and get better in subsequent pregnancies.

Like with the other early pregnancy signs, your hormones are to blame. In the case of nausea, it may be partly be due to the pregnancy hormone, human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG for short), which spikes in early pregnancy. Nausea tends to start around the time that the levels of hCG go up in the body.

Nausea often eases up after the first trimester, but there are unfortunately pregnant women who are nauseous throughout all nine months.

6. Drooling and Excess Saliva – This isn’t an early pregnancy sign that is discussed a lot, but it can be a symptom that affects some pregnant women. Some women notice they produce more saliva in their mouths than before they were pregnant. Excessive saliva production in pregnancy is called ptyalism gravidarum.

This early sign of pregnancy is often related to morning sickness and heartburn. Nauseous women often don’t swallow as often, which allows the extra spit to build up in their mouths. Or perhaps, they notice their saliva more when they are feeling queasy, because they just feel a generous ill ease. In addition, if you have heartburn, you have an excess of acid and your body may produce more saliva to combat this – saliva is alkaline (pH is higher than 7.0) and it can actually neutralize the gastric acid in your body to combat the heartburn.

Women who produce more saliva or normal (ptyalism gravidarum) often have a hard time swallowing the saliva, so they end up spitting it out. Many say that their saliva tastes bad. This pregnancy sign can really make your life difficult, but it’s not as common as the other signs of pregnancy before missed period, but it does occur.

7.The Need to Pee – One of the first signs of pregnancy before missed period is frequent urination. It’s a classic pregnancy symptom, and it can start even before you take your first home pregnancy test. It’s not uncommon for you to suddenly need to pee a lot … or all the time. You might be getting up multiple times during the night to pee, or going to the bathroom more than normal during the day. It’s annoying to have to pee so much, but it’s such a normal pregnancy experience.

Right after conception, all those hormonal changes and all the extra blood you’re producing (twice as much during pregnancy) can contribute to frequent urination in pregnancy. Your kidneys have to filter twice the amount of blood, so this will fill up your bladder more often, so you’ll be taking more pee breaks than before.

8. Food Aversions – If you suddenly start to notice that foods that you used to love – whether it was seafood, chicken, or beef – start to make you turn up your nose or even cause you to feel nauseous or queasy, this is another common early pregnancy sign. The smells of certain foods and even the look of your old favorite foods can make you feel ill, or queasy.

Food aversions are so common among pregnant women – an estimated 85 percent experience this early pregnancy symptom in the first trimester. For some moms, your food aversions can last throughout your pregnancy and even beyond. Most women get their appetite for their favorite foods back in the second or third pregnancies. But every woman is different!

Food aversions in pregnancy are typically linked to morning sickness, but not always.

You can blame pregnancy hormones for this sign of pregnancy. If you are indeed pregnant, just make sure that you get enough healthy and balanced food in your diet to have a healthy baby!

9.  Feeling Dizzy – Lightheadedness and dizziness can be an early sign of pregnancy, caused by low blood pressure. It’s pretty normal to feel a little dizzy occasionally when you’re pregnant, because your blood vessels are dilated and your blood pressure is steadily decreasing in the first trimester. (Your blood pressure is the lowest in the second trimester, and then it goes back up to normal by the time you have your baby.)

Being dizzy can be normal, however if your dizziness is accompanied by abdominal pain or vaginal bleeding may be a sign of something more serious, like an ectopic pregnancy.

10. Moodiness and Mood Swings – Are your emotions going crazy? This is another early sign of pregnancy before missed period. Like with all the other pregnancy symptoms, it’s caused by the hormonal changes in your body, which affect the neurotransmitters in your brain, contributing to heightened emotions – from weepy and crying spells to sudden bursts of anger that seem to come from nowhere. The smallest things can set you off.

Since you are so emotional in the first few weeks of pregnancy, just try to take it easy. Get lots of rest. Talk to someone about how you are feeling, and try to talk to your partner or husband and ask him to be more understanding during this crazy time of emotions.

11. Headaches – Because of all the hormonal changes in the first weeks of pregnancy, it’s common for newly pregnant women to suffer from achy headaches.

Take a Home Pregnancy Test

All of the early signs of pregnancy before a missed period described above can also be symptoms of other health problems, not just pregnancy. So if you are having unprotected sex and you think that you might just be pregnant, take a home pregnancy test starting on the day that your period is late.

A home pregnancy test is the only sure way to know whether or not you’re expecting. Symptoms may give you a clue, but testing will help alleviate your worries and give you some answers.

If you get a negative result and you’re sure that you’re pregnant, wait a few days or another week and test again. Good luck!

  • Debbie January 3, 2017, 3:16 am

    My hubby & I have been trying for a baby since November 2015. So 14 months now. With no luck. Im 39, 40 in June. Hubby is a young 23 We have seen fertile clinic. Been told to just keep trying, no reason we cant have children. After 14 months im starting to lose hope. Neither of us have any children.
    My period is due in 6 days time. Two days ago I went to the toilet in the morning to find I was bleeding. That would have meant I was a week early. I was yet again, very disappointed. But by lunch time it had more or less gone. Lastnight and today no bleeding at all. Not even a little bit. Ive also had my right nipple soooo tender and sore to touch. And just about always erect. My nipples dont normally stick out at all. Ive also had a bit of a sore lower back on and off all day. My moods have been all over the place. And im always tired.
    Any suggestions?
    Being a Mum is all Ive ever wanted to be my whole life. So Im very scared of being let down again.

    Just wanting to see what everyone thinks. I was supposed to start my period 4 days ago. I have experienced cramping here and there but not like i would if i was about to start. I got dizzy and lightheaded Thursday night. It lasted for a few seconds. My nipples have been tingly and sore to the touch, also they have been harder for longer periods of time. There’s a heaviness in my lower back. And as I sit here writing this, I am extremely tired. I slept all night last night. I even went to bed early. I took a test 2 days ago and it showed negative. What do i do? Any advice? Comments? If I am preggo, it’ll be my first. Just needing some insight! Thanks in advance!

  • Chan April 4, 2016, 3:39 pm

    I’m on cd 24. I don’t know what’s going on with me. I’m 41. Had fibroid removed in 2012. Ttc. My last period came on 3/11. I had unprotected sex on the 16th. Then again around the 18th and 19th. And probably another day but i didnt keep track fully. I guess I ovulated on the 25th. Around the 26th I saw a teeny speck of blood after wiping. That was it. A few days later my feet were cramping. I can feel my calves wanting to go into spasms. I had sex again on the 31st. Since 4/2 I noticed I was having slight cramps. I was feeling like Af was coming early. Last night i felt crampy on the right side near my ovaries with slight back soreness. Then i noticed a sharp pain sitting on the entire right side of my stomach. Today, 4/4, I felt wetness in my undies. Rushed to the bathroom and it was just, what I believe, mucus. I am.keeping annoyed mind as to thinking my cycle could be changing due to age. I just wanna be a mom. I want to know if anyone has any insight to my plight. My period is due on the 8th. Feel a bit weird in my ” area” now as if my cycle is gonna begin again. By the way, I’ve only felt fatigued around cd 16 or 17. Very y tired. I have NO SYMPTOMS. What gives?!

    • Casey Parker April 14, 2016, 6:48 pm

      • Chan July 26, 2016, 5:23 pm

        Nothing happened…however, I noticed my period(June and July) were and extra day longer. Today, i am cycle day 22(had my cycle on July 4th-10th). I did the deed on the 16th, and twice after (one being yesterday don’t remember the other…maybe 2-3 days before). Two days ago, I was sitting nude(tmi) I got up to do something and I noticed a lot of mucus was down there..It looked mixed, clear and tiny white globs…I noticed I felt queasy yesterday(paid very little attention) and had indigestion…I thought it was because I ate a bit and had lots of watermelon(cooling off) I felt like I needed to pass a hard bit of wind to feel relief. After resting, the gas went away. Today at work(cafe) I felt a hint of nausea…came home, felt it again….Not to mention, I felt so tired, I thought I could take a nap. I was only able to slightly cat nap 10minutes but laid down for an hour….Boobs are sore as hell but no growth and no darkening of my areolas….I took my bra off and wanna to scream. I have to hold them up(like I’m hugging myself). I noticed that last month but it seems like its a bit more painful than normal PMS breast soreness. I don’t know whats happening. We are ttc. even now I had to stop typing and cover my nipples….the ceiling fan hurts. I’m supposedly due for this retarded a** AF on Aug 1st…I truly hope this is it….Been making sure to get my daily folate by juicing and eating leafy greens…I have to go, nipples are killing me…FINGERS CROSSED!!!

    I had my last period 2/13 which lasted one day and was light and spotty. My period has yet to come still 3/20 and it is very regular either right on time or a day or two before. In the last few weeks I’ve felt off, extremely tired, experiences dizziness. I’ve noticed an increase in saliva while I kiss my husband which (I thought was weird). My breasts are tender and starting to feel heavy. I’ve always been a frequent pee-er lol. And crazy mood swings!! I counted 6 out of the 11 to fit me. I took 2 home tests 5 days after my missed period and they both said not pregnant. Am I going crazy?

    I came on my period on January 7. My fiance’ and I had sex everyday that I was fertile and twice on my expected ovulation day. 3 days after ovulation, I started getting really sick. I was so full of nausea and on day 4 I vomited. I have been so tired and I cant half function. Feb 1, one week pre-menstruation, My breast began to get sore and feel full. Day 6 I began to bloat so much that I had to come out my spank and bra during bible study at church! The nausea has not stopped and today, I had heartburn and the type of gas that would attract flies! It was really bad! I do not have heartburn normally, so when I started feeling it I expected something was up. I will know on Feb 7 if I am pregnant. Oh and all of a sudden I take naps like a newborn baby. We get married in a month. We shall see. 🙂

    Hi, did anyone find that got pregnant? goodluck then xx

  • Rebecca January 17, 2016, 5:32 pm

    So I recently missed my period. first day of my last period was Dec.12th I am about 11 days late, no signs and symptoms of pregnancy and tested with first response hpt yesterday at 10 days late and both were negative. Shouldn’t it show up by now that I’m pregnant or am I just missing my period? Also I had some spotting/bleeding 3 days after my period and that lasted about 4 days. Do u think that threw my cycle off?

    • Hippie February 9, 2016, 7:52 am

  • Jasica January 15, 2016, 4:48 pm

    • Mandy August 23, 2016, 9:39 am

      Were you pregnant??? I’m so nauseous, and still have 6 days before my period.

  • Temi January 13, 2016, 9:57 pm

    I’ve been feeling tired because I haven’t been sleeping good lately .

  • mariah denise December 26, 2015, 4:14 pm

    i threw up yellow stuff this morning. i never experienced anything of this sort and it happened as soon as i got up. i felt completely normal immideately afterwards. is vomiting yellow substance a sign?

    • Logan March 20, 2016, 2:51 am

      Yellow stuff is probably stomach acid. You digest all your food at night and wake up with an empty tummy. Throwing up as soon as you wake up is obviously not normal lol

    • Ciara Gallo September 22, 2016, 5:30 pm

      I would say yes

  • joyce December 22, 2015, 2:24 am

  • LR1994 December 12, 2015, 7:25 pm

    I have cramping, bloating and had unprotected sex the last day of my period. I am on birth control but have unprotected sex alot! I recently went pee and wiped with brown discharge i just started feeling nausous and its only been a week after a possible conveive. Am i pregnant? And if i dont find out yet should i keep taking my birth control or stop until i find out?

  • Ann Garcia December 1, 2015, 6:11 pm

    I’ve been pregnant beforeso I know full on when I should take a taste. My question is I am a little over a month off of birth control, not for TTC. Just need my body back on balance. I have heavy breasts, no darkened areolas. I have had cramps for the last 4 or 5 days, no period. I took one at home PT it was negative, but it was in the evening. I am a do have a little gas along with these cramps. They come midday or evening and I wake up the next fine in the morning. Should I wait a few more days to see if my period will come then test again? Or should I test again right away but in the morning?

    • ifyluv December 2, 2015, 9:10 pm

    I’ve had sore breasts about 2.5 weeks before my period is due.. I took a pregnancy test on nov 7th and it came out negative.. My period supposed to come tomorrow (november 21st) my breasts have been unbelievably sore for 2.5 weeks now they kind of feel a bit heavy and they hurt really badly.. i constantly have to pee. I’m cramping a little though..and im always tired.. I even started to go to my bed really early but i would come to work and be extremely exhausted.

  • Ashley November 19, 2015, 11:43 am

    If I had sex Nov 11 when can I take a test and get accurate results

    • Jamika November 20, 2015, 12:52 pm

      You should take it 10 days after your missed period.. with your first pee in the morning

  • debbie October 22, 2015, 1:22 am

    I had sex two days after my period and i took a morning after pill.exactly on the 7th day i started bleeding.i bled for 4days on the fourth day i had sex used a condom..n the next day i started feeling dizziness and breast tenderness….could i be pregnant????
    I need an answer ASAP please

  • Mohmmed August 4, 2015, 1:22 pm

    Sometimes you can have pregnancy symptoms the day after conception. If you think you are pregnant, go to a Dr. and they can do a pregnancy test (usually blood) about 10 days after you think you are pregnant. And sometimes it is just your hormones running super high and that is also totally normal! Good Luck!

  • melody July 18, 2015, 4:07 pm

    love all av read! Am avn all dis signs since two weeks now but my period is not late but hoping nextweek if it did not come then wil do home test. Thanks to dis article, its helpful to me!

  • delight oyoma July 15, 2015, 4:50 am

    I love this article. However, I feel all the above simptons except saliver drooling and my breast is still very normal. I noticed that I’m always having watery discharge, I feel hungry all d time. my period is due tomorow. what do you think?

    • itsyas July 16, 2015, 5:38 pm

      Exactly same thing we are going thru, my period was supposed to be today but i still havent got it. As i unbuttoned my jeans couple hours ago, i do have some cramping too.

  • Blissful June 14, 2015, 2:49 pm


    Even you are on implant by arm. Somehow 11months later then May and June threw up and nausea too much and it never stop even no period since got implant and cant get pregnant? Did took home pregnant test and 3 negatives.

    Breasts is not sore but grow if someone bump it sore. Back still sore if stand for too long?
    If smell funny and cant handle and sometime threw up too….

    Should check GP or gynecologist doctor?

    Please let me know?

    Any advice will be great thanks.

  • Jayda June 7, 2015, 2:27 pm

    Hi… This article was very helpful and detailed. I was hoping to get some advice back if you end up reading my comment. First I’ll start by saying I have unprotected sex with my boyfriend all the time, as we are both clean and are in a serious relationship. Lately we’ve been getting caught up in the moment and he asked for my consent to finish inside the vagina, I said yes. Keep in mind I’m also not on birth control, so I took a plan b pill the next day. I have felt nausea often lately (I only threw up once) my period is 2 days late, my breasts usually feel tender all the time so that didn’t alarm me, the thing that is bothering me the most is that all my pants feel really uncomfortable and tight, and my stomach is fully bloated out for 3 days now and I feel like a Baloon & been having gas along with it, constant gas and not being able to use the washroom. I’m always tired and often don’t wanna do anything but sleep. And have become so emotionally unstable my boyfriend often doesn’t know how to deal with me. I’m wondering if I took the plan b may 31st and my period was suppose to come June 4th if I should take a pregnancy test? Because I didn’t get the usual spotting that comes from taking the pill. Or if it sounds like I shouldn’t consider wasting my money on taking one.
    Thanks for your time 🙂

    • Anonymous July 12, 2015, 11:19 am

      Sounds like you were already pregnant before he finished in you

    • Catti August 6, 2015, 1:32 am

      Actually the symptoms might also be the plan B side effects. I felt kind of the same when I took it, and it was very effective.

  • walo May 23, 2015, 11:13 pm

      Walking in the preecnse of giants here. Cool thinking all around!

    • AR auto quote May 31, 2017, 10:34 am

      Nearly all of whatever you claim is supprisingly appropriate and that makes me wonder the reason why I had not looked at this with this light previously. This particular piece really did turn the light on for me as far as this subject goes. However there is actually one issue I am not too cozy with so whilst I make an effort to reconcile that with the actual central theme of the issue, permit me see exactly what all the rest of the subscribers have to point out.Well done.

  • BLESSING January 9, 2015, 10:15 am

    Thanks for dis article.i am feeling dis signs now.my period is one day late nd i feel something like a discharge but not blood.i knw i am preggy.

  • Alice December 15, 2014, 11:07 am

    Some far i find dis site so helpful to me. Am four days late maybe i will like fot 3days more to test
