The Strange, Unusual and Uncommon Very Early Signs of Pregnancy

Posted on August 2nd, 2008. Written by .

You can do a search in any search engine and find hundreds of websites with a list of the most common early signs of pregnancy… but how many of them list the lesser known or the strange? Well based on information provided by CTP members using the VEP Symptom Tracker, we have compiled the data of what symptoms are experienced and when, including the obscure and less talked about signs. These are statistics based on real women who tracked their very early signs and symptoms right from the day of conception!

Here is a list of symptoms that you may never have attributed to pregnancy! Now that it’s on a list (and supported by hundreds of women) you can! :)

Are you trying to conceive? Do you want to track your early signs and symptoms during the seemingly endless two week wait and find common symptoms with women who became pregnant? Then you absolutely must become a CTP member!

  1. Well i havent had a period in 2 months. Lastnight i felt really sick to my stomach , i was cooking dinner and i felt really sick but i was hungry so i ate, i couldnt eat more but i was really hungry so i did.i was nauseous the whole time. Ive had frequent urination, i get up at nights every day just to go to the bathroom. Me and my boyfriend have unprotected sex all the time , we do it at least 3 or 4 times a week. Really tired at times, get headaches and my blood pressure goes down at times. Feel dizzy and crave spicy things. What can it be ? Weve been wanting a baby , and im hoping i am.

  2. Need some help.
    I had unprotected sex a day after my period and a week later I vomited 3 times and fainted, I feel dizzy all the time, and my face has been breaking out a lot more than usual.
    My ovulation day already passed for this month and I haven’t missed my period, I have taken a pregnancy test and came out negative but I’m still to early to tell.
    I also crave food and sometimes want to like to the smell of food.
    My stomach does get bloated & I’ve been having diahrea for the past 2 days. I also have a creamy white discharge on my undies. I also have been having soar breast for the past 2 and a half weeks, could I be pregnant ? I feel like I am, and a lot of people have been asking me bc of the way I’ve been feeling for the last week and a half.
    Kinda worried bc I do smoke.
    I’ve been feeling like this since a couple days after my last period. So I don’t think it’s not normal. Never felt like this before.

  3. Hey,
    My husband and i have been trying to.concieve our first baby. I was on the pill 11years and i have been off the pill 4months now. Recently I have noticed my nipples are bigger, cramping in stomach, really bad gas, headaches, hot n cold flushes and bad flu recently plus diarrohea every morning for last 4days, no appetite, period is several days late too. Could I be preg?
