  • You can test up to 5 days before your missed period with an early response test, but it's best to wait until you miss your period for most accurate results.

    And you can experience symptoms a week after conception; I did with my second. Or you could experience no symptoms at all until you start to feel kicks; that's closer to how my first was. Not to mention that early pregnancy symptoms can usually be explained away by something else, like PMS, stress, illness, etc.
