  • Everyone is different. Some start right away with these types of symptoms (I do) even before a positive test. Some never have them. Most of the symptoms seem to get better by the end of first trimester.

  • with my 1st pregnancy i had cramping, headaches, and morning sickness all before i was supposed to start my period. so i pretty much knew i was pregnant before i took an hpt. with this pregnancy (#2) i'm still waiting for the morning sickness and all that- and i'm 6 weeks). so you can have symptoms a week after conception to a couple months after. i've heard some women don't get it at all.
