  • For me, it was between 2 & 4 weeks. The first symptoms I noticed were nausea and having to go to the bathroom more often.

  • With my first, I had fatigue and some mild food aversion starting about a week after ovulation, but it wasn't enough for me to associate it with pregnancy; that didn't happen until I missed my period.

    With my second, I had just about every symptom in the book a week after ovulation, and was fairly confident then that I was pregnant, though I waited for a missed period to confirm with a test.

    It varies from woman to woman and pregnancy to pregnancy. For the most part, you won't start feeling symptoms until at least a week or so after ovulation because that's when the hormones start to come out in droves. Some women feel symptoms within a few days, some have none until they feel they feel the baby kick (discounting missed periods, of course).

  • With the first pregnancy, I felt pregnant about a week after conception. First symptoms were tender breasts and super sensitive nipples (when the water from the shower hit them it was ungodly painful) plus just this feeling that I was pregnant. I didn't feel the nausea until about 5 weeks after. With my current pregnancy it was about 4 weeks after conception that I felt any symptoms at all

  • i'm just having some weird things happen. My areolas (sp) have blue veins in them that i've never noticed before and my vagina seems darker and with me its going to be hard to tell,because of my auto-immune disease because i have some of these symptoms all year long.

  • A week after conception I had this terrible pain in my right side, just by my ovaries. I left it for a week but by the Friday it was so bad I couldn't even walk and we got worried I was having an ectopic pregnancy. We went to the ER and everything checked out fine, they just told me that my ovary was inflamed. The pains subsided at week 3 and then the nausea set in ha! So, I guess my story is, if you get terrible cramps, don't freak out it can be normal, but if they continue go and see a doctor just in case!

  • I just felt "icky" and I didn't even think about pregnancy for about 3 weeks. I think I must have started feeling it within at least a few days.

  • It depends on the person and how in touch they are with their own body.
