Missing a period

Fatigue is often caused by pregnancy. If you find yourself getting excessively tired for apparent no reason, it may be due to pregnancy.

Nausea with or without vomiting

Morning sickness which can happen at any time of the day is one of the classic symptoms of pregnancy. For some women, the queasiness begins as early as two weeks after conception. Pregnant women also have a heightened sense of smell, so various odors - such as foods cooking, perfume or cigarette smoke - may cause waves of nausea in early pregnancy.

Other Symptoms

Some other symptoms that you can experience by the first two weeks of pregnancy are tender breasts, frequent urge to pee, bloating and craving for certain food. These symptoms of pregnancy can be experienced even without getting pregnant. It can be quite taxing mentally if you are anxious about getting pregnant but cannot be sure. That is why home pregnancy tests are popular. They can give an indication of positive or negative pregnancy but need to be confirmed by a blood test.

Although there are no recognisable symptoms of pregnancy the day after conception, you can be reasonably assured of it with early pregnancy symptoms. These early symptoms can come as early as the first week to fourth week. Visit a doctor as soon as you feel you are pregnant. It is important that you prepare yourself as early as possible for your baby. It may not be easy to separate pregnancy symptoms after conception from common illnesses and home pregnancy tests do not confirm with certainty. Besides, there are some women who do not show any symptoms at all after even 4 weeks at times.
