When will you start to feel pregnant? Early signs and symptoms

Women usually start to feel some changes around the fourth or fifth week of pregnancy. Even if you don’t feel any different to usual at this point, it doesn’t mean anything is wrong. Remember, everyone experiences pregnancy differently.

Most commonly, the first sign of pregnancy is a missed period. But if you have more irregular cycles, this may not be the case.

As your hormones begin to change, you may start to feel very tired and nauseous (yayyy) as well as a bunch of other super fun symptoms. This tends to happen around week six. You might start craving food and shouting ‘BUY ME THE PICKLES!’ to anyone who crosses your path. You might have sore breasts or feel very bloated. You might have a metallic taste in your mouth. Please note, this list really isn’t extensive. There are approximately a bigillion symptoms you might notice in early pregnancy. That’s part of the adventure.
