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. Hi. I’m dawn. I’m 19. I’ve been with my boyfriend for a year and a half, today. My period was a few days late and it was really light when I was awake but when I would sleep, it would be so heavy that it was over flowing a super tampon. I’ve been eating and drinking A LOT and pooping a lot more than usual (possibly urinating too but I usually poop like once every two days) I’m always cold and I’ve been soo tired that I can sit down and just pass out for hours. About three days ago ,I was at work and I got so nauseous that I started crying and then I was like “you’re at work, stop crying” and then yesterday, I bought pizza (I’ve also wanted pizza for like every meal for like like two weeks.) and I got out of the parking lot and turned at the stop sign and the pizza fell of my dashboard and my pizza squished all together and half the toppings slid off and I just balled my eyes out until my boyfriend came out and said “it’s still pizza, we can still eat it. It’s okay, don’t cry”… the other day my shoulders were sore like I had done a work out but I dont workout and I hadn’t done anything that would make me sore. My stomach feels like it’s burning when I drink soda (thought I could be ulcers)but if I drink coffee, I’m fine. Bad acne. Cramps like trapped gas. Could I be pregnant?

  2. My symptoms:
    Runny Nose
    Stuffy Nose
    Vivid Dreams
    Strong Smelling Urine
    Achy Legs or Hips
    Yellow Cervical Fluid
    Increased Cervical Fluid
    Hot Flashes
    I am two days late for my period, and when I took a test yesterday it said negative but i cant explain the nausea and migraines.

  3. My period came several days early, I wasn’t suppose to start until the 23 . I’ve been trying to get pregnant, and I know that I was ovulating whenever we had our alone time, we didn’t use protection and he didn’t putt out, is there a possibility that this is the end of my ovulation And my body may just be discharging any excess sperm??

  4. I had the iud and 2 wks ago i spotted for two days. My nipples are very, no, EXTREMELY sensitive. Everytime im aroud or think about my boyfriend i cry. I just love him so much and break down. Bad headaches, face is breaking out. Feel drained at the end of the day. Cant go off if my period is late bc i had no period with the iud. The iud is no longer in me. Not sure of im pregnant or whats going on. And two tests show negative. Maybe im taking them to early but id love some feedback.

    • And i have felt like ive gainrd weight. They all say i look the same but i can feel it. Have congestion i just cant get rid of

  5. I am 27. Back in July my military boyfriend came back home for his yearly visit. Of coarse we spent ALOT of time together since it could be another year before we see each other again. We of coarse are cautious and know that theres always a possibility of becoming Pregnant. I am not sure if I am or not. The last day of SI was August 2nd. I have taken many pregnancy tests but every one has come back negative. Here are the symptoms I have had on and off since week two. Headache, fever, bloated, cramps in right side, gas, constipated, sleeplessness, vivid dreams, metalic taste in my mouth, had a short 4 day and VERY light period (Makes me think it was an implantation bleed), stuffy nose, sore inside of nose (I had this when I was pregnant with my daughter six years ago), felt sick a few times, stomach aches occasionally, etc. There are more but I can not think of them all right now. My period was suppose to start two days ago but still hasn’t come. I know stress can have an effect on the period but I have not had stress that is heavier then normal. Someone tell me if im going crazy or if I am pregnant! If I am then I am about seven and a half weeks. I just want answers!!

  9. My boyfriend nutted on me Aug 1 and Aug 3 during my ovulation week. Now it’s 24 and I am 3 days late? I been feeling fat and I get pain in my lower stomach and my stomach hurts and feels sick all day everyday for the last 2 weeks. I also sleepy a lot. Could I be pregnant? Can I takes a pregnancy test already?

  10. Hi , I am 23 years old and I’ve had plenty of time to understand how my body works . One of my symptoms is lightheadedness and fainting which can be attributed to my iron deficiency (I’ve been taking iron supplements to control this) but recently I’ve been experiencing severe nausea after eating or drinking even the most bland foods (water , crackers etc.) since flavorful ones turn my stomach . About 3 days ago my long time boyfriend and I had unprotected sex using the “pull out method” and he accidentally came on the inner labia (sorry if this is TMI) after wiping himself off he continued till I came . Later I began to worry that he may have pushed some deeper inside me . I know this could just be in my head , but inexplicable nausea worries me . We’ve since started using protection at my request (hopefully it’s not moot) . I have no health insurance to consult a doctor and money is tight right now , I’d rather have more reasonable cause to buy a $25.00 pregnancy test with money we could use for gasoline , not just worries of “what if” . I regret not being more careful but like I said money is tight and that’s how we justified not buying protection (even though a child is definitely more expensive) I need to know if this is something to worry about or is it all just my mind and body easing with me bc I’m paranoid and think of the worst possible cause for my symptoms . I appreciate any suggestions and will take them into consideration .

    • Not all Pregnancy tests cost $25, there are tests for $5 at any pharmacy , walmart, or family dollar that work perfectly fine…

  11. Hi.need an advice
    Myself and my partner having unprotected sex on 11aug (ovilulation day) and he ejaculate inside me as well. After 4 days, i found i hv some pinkish then follow by brownish blood and now the brownish seem going off. Almost every morning I feel nausea after breakfast. May i know is this a sign of pregnancy?

  12. Hi there, Im 19 and im sexually active but im not sure if i could be pregnant. When i stand up i feel dizzy or light headed the feeling to sit back down. I feel like im out of breath and at times i feel chilly. I get nauseous at times around food or at times even hearing anything that is food. Its been 6 days since the time that he actually did “cum” but not in me but near my Vagina. But it might have gotten in since it took me a while to go wash up. So could i be pregnant? I would go to a doctor or get a pregnancy test but im not trying to let no one know about my situation until im fully sure. Yeah i know it’s a best way to know that im actually am but i don’t want no one to know for im around people who gossip about everyone and they all start talking, see i really don’t care if they do but i don’t want to go check and if i come out negative then they will be with the talk of she’s being sexually active, for no one around me knows my business nor that im sexually active. I keep to my self. So if anyone can help me out a bit and whatever i get of answers ill make sure that i find a way to test if i am. Please and thank you ☺

  13. So I’ve been confused lately . In june ago when my period was supposed to come it was more of a brown discharge with very little to none bleeding . And I would get cramps and occasionally throw up or at least feel like I had to . In July it’s been the same like June but instead of brown discharge it was more like spotting . And this month , two weeks before I am supposed to start my period I had spotted for two days. And I’m still waiting for my period in like a week and a half it should come . But I am also on birth control. Is there a possibility I might be pregnant or should I seek a doctor about this or is this normal ?

  14. Hello I am 21 years old., and my husband and I have been ttc for a while now. About two to three weeks ago I had a headache every single day pretty much. That stopped and the cramps and bloating and the feel I of trapped gas started. Also I have these little whiteheads pimple looking things on my areolas that ib have never noticed before, but cant say when they appeared for sure. My breast feel a little tender but not real bad and that started this morning. I took 4 tests and all said negative.

  23. Hello everyone,
    Please reply back to this I am in dire need of help.

    Okay so my period was due on the 24th of July and it’s is currently the 5th of August and is late but just recently I have had a brownish/pinkish fluid like period? I have had most of the symptoms of being pregnant even the uncommon ones and I took “HPT’s” and they came back negative. But even with all this fluid I still feel pregnant? Also I have been getting really sevear back pain and cramps which causes me to bawl my eyes out and my boyfriend doesn’t know what to do besides constant massages I am 16 years of age and to frightened to go docters but I need to know what’s happening! I have spoken to several friends and they said I may be pregnant but I just don’t know? Please can someone help me.

    Also my boyfriend “finished” in me numerous times and also on the day which my period was due, as we are trying? Please no hate at my age.

  24. I’m 24 and recently had been tracking my menstrual cycle with the Pink Pad app on my iPhone around mid-June. I was having fun and thinking nothing of it because I pin pointed the exact date the I ovulated which was the was the 16th of July. I was intimate with my partner on the 14th. I just wanted to track my menstrual cycle as well as symptom so that I would know what to expect. Well flash forward two weeks later and I am not feeling well at all. App predicted for my period to come on the 25th and its the 29th. I have the following symptoms.

    Runny Nose
    Stuffy Nose
    Strong Smelling Urine
    Achy Legs or Hips
    Dizziness or Light Headed
    Strange/Metallic Taste in Mouth
    Yellow Cervical Fluid
    Increased Cervical Fluid
    Hot Flashes

    AND THAT’S NOT ALL : I had a fkn PARAGARD IUD inserted in June 2013!!! I made an appointment with Planned parenthood and I’m ready I’M SO UPSET ! As it turned out a couple of weeks ago me and my partner decided to start trying to conceive in 12-16 months because we are wedding planning and looking into buying a house.I feel unprepared but also like I want to keep it if I am pregnant. There are so many risks involved with an IUD.
    - If the pregnancy is above the IUD I’m sure I can have it removed and carry until full term.
    -On the other hand if the pregnancy has developed below, then I will surely miscarry.
    I some people decide to leave it in while pregnant but thats at risk of infection and I can STILL miscarry later on. Which is more horrible.


    I’m crushed because I have sooo much exhaustion and limb pain at the moment …had an on and off anxiety attack most of the day due to the hormones I guess ( I have been struggling with anxiety in the past but not like today…..The shitty thing is that a couple of days ago I set up an appointment to have the IUD removed in September. FML

    • so im wondering if u ever found out if u were pregnant or not? cause the last few days ive been getting hot flashes and like these butterflies feelings in my lower stomach and peeing a lot and I have the iud paragard I had a baby last October I also have a 2 yr old and im kinda freaking out ? after reading yours so im just carious plz help me

  25. I am 24 yrs old never had a pregancy and ever since I was 11 I’ve had horridly harsh periods. I was on bc for 10 years until this las yr and a half because I felt like 10 yrs was to long to constantly be on it. But recently last month I began bc again because my period pain has been getting worse and worse by the day. I know how my body reacts to bc but it did something crazy and my sister whom is a mother of two said what is happening could actually not be my period. I’ve had 3 “periods” for the lack of a better word, in the last month and a half, I currently am now after stopping my 2nd one a week after my bday (around the 14th of July) and early this week I began to have just a light pink discharge, I thought my period may start again so I have kept on taking my bc, but it has only gotten worse over the days. Yesterday I woke up with my panties soaked in blood and that has not happened since I was 13 yrs old before I got a handle on what feminine hygiene necessities I needed with all the different shapes and sizes. Any ways I have been really easily sick to my stomach, last night for example I was at a BBQ and having a great time when all of a sudden I felt like i was going to blow chunks everywhere, this nausea has not stopped once and I’ve been continually puking ever few hrs all night (7/26/14) Which is not regular for me or my body…vomiting is the one bodily function I truely hate with a passion, on top of my 3periods and being nauseous, I have also been extremely tired, urinating a lot, when I do pass a bowl movement it’s always diarrhea now, I smell everything and it makes me head/stomach hurt an have been having really crazy detailed dreams…(which I have not remebered a dream for about a yr now) and just I’ve been more emotional and unable to control it way more than usual even when it’s time for my menstration I don’t get extremely emotional. I do somewhat but not like I am now. Idk if it’s pregancy or some fucked up uterus issue but I really need some solid advice. Thank you for your time!!

  26. hey

    im a 23 year old and lately i have been feeling kinda weird, im sleepy and tired most of the time, eat a lot, have this cramps, and my periods for the past 2months have been for just oneday the next the is nothing even if i can have sex nothing will come and i took a pregnancy test the first month of my period but it come out negative. My partner and i do not use a condom we want a baby. im scared to do the test cause i so love the feeling that i could be preg. is it possible that im pregnant?

  27. I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend like 3 or 4 weeks ago before my period. Afterwards I started waking up with and having headaches nosebleeds. I’ve been extremely tired waking up from sleeping and through out the day. And sharp stomach pains I’m pregnant or something?

  28. So I have been married since June 23rd, and I am not on birth control and I don’t use condoms… (I know, dumb) but I had a super light period that ended on the 7th of July. But now I am having 6 of the symptoms above. I typed in my symptoms to google, and everything that came up has to do with being pregnant. From the time of having these symptoms, how long do you have to wait to take a pregnancy test..?

    • If you believe you conceived prior to the “period” you had ending July 7th then you would be able to take a pregnancy test now. If the results are negative you could wait another week and test again.

  29. my boyfriend and i had sex last week and my stomach has been hurting he told me he cummed inside me, and i would experience light bleeding one day then the next day it’s gone. am i pregnant?

  30. Ok so I am trying to have a bAby since after I was told I was cured after having cancer so I’m hoping someone can help me so I had unprotected sex two days before I started ovulating an now it’s four day now an for the last too I’ve been with a stuffy nose an throwing up an very sleepy could I be pregant? An e feeling very early pregnancy symptoms or is it just me having a summer cold?

  31. Ok so I am 29 and i have been on birth control since november 2013. The last month or two i have been have unusual symptoms. I didnt get my period but just assumed it was from the hormones in the birth control. I took a pregnancy test but it came up negative so i started the next pack of pills. the last few weeks i have been fatigued, have cramping, nausea, dizziness, over active bladder, and breast swelling. Is it possible that the test could have been wrong? I feel crazy to even be thinking pregnany but i dont know what else it could be.

  32. Hello, I know this post was quite some time ago but this is the only website I figured that could really help me! I’m 19 turning 20 in a few months I’ve been with my boyfriend for a long time and we’ve only just started having sex as I didn’t want to rush into anything. Anyway I’ve been having a lot of belly ache and my body just aches all the time, I’ve had a lot of vaginal discharge and going to the toilet more frequently than normal, I’ve been feeling sick, tired wanting to sleep continuously and I’ve been very moody and lately started having nose bleeds. I haven’t had regular periods since I started, but I usually come on for a week then miss two months and come on, i was due to come on a few weeks ago and I didn’t but recently I had a very dark period that was a really nasty brown colour. I’ve took a few home test but they have all came back negative, could some one help me. Could I be pregnant or is their something wrong that I should seek drs help with?

Also I haven’t been eating anything cause the food don’t seem to have a taste to it. I am wondering what’s wrong with me?

  48. 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.

  49. 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.

    • Are your periods normally on time? Have you looked into PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome)? I have PCOS and I feel like this when my hormones are out of whack. I am 31 and never really had acne until I was diagnosed with PCOS. Sometimes, before/with my period, I get really strong symptoms of cravings, dizziness, nausea, bloating, etc (alot of your listed symptoms). I’d talk to your doc about it, JIC. Good luck!

  50. Hey,
