has anyone experienced pregnancy symptoms like nausea, fatigue and headaches as early as 3 weeks into prenancy
I’ve been nausean about an hour after i wake up everyday and again at night. The headaches are intense and last a long time. The fatigue is not that bad, but comes mostly in the afternoon. My last period was induced my a dose of Provera, and I had heard that once you take the Provera it makes you really fertile. Now I think I may be pregnant.

Take a pregnancy test, its the sure way to find out. 3 weeks seems a little early to be getting symptoms, but its possible (With my second I was feeling sick before I had even missed a period!!!).

Early signs and symptoms of pregnancy: Things you might notice before you start prenatal care
Could you be pregnant? Before you test, read this list of classic clues.
Are you pregnant? The proof is really in the pregnancy test. But you may suspect — or hope — that you’re expecting, even before you miss a period, if you experience one or more of the following signs and symptoms of pregnancy. These early clues may begin in the first few weeks after conception.
Tender, swollen breasts or nipples
One of the first physical changes of pregnancy is a change in the way your breasts feel. They may feel tender, tingly or sore. Or they may feel fuller and heavier. As early as two weeks after conception, your breasts start to grow and change in preparation for producing milk. The primary cause of these changes is increased production of the hormones estrogen and progesterone. Changes in your breasts are often most dramatic when you’re pregnant for the first time.
Many women feel wiped out during pregnancy, especially in the early stages. This may be nature’s way of persuading moms-to-be to take extra naps, in preparation for the sleepless nights ahead. But there’s also a physical reason for fatigue.
During the early weeks of pregnancy, your body is working hard — pumping out hormones and producing more blood to carry nutrients to your baby. To accommodate this increased blood flow, your heart pumps harder and faster. Plus, progesterone is a natural central nervous system depressant, so high levels of this hormone may make you sleepy. In addition, the possibility of pregnancy can bring about a range of feelings and concerns that may sap your energy and disturb sleep.
Slight bleeding or cramping
Some women experience a small amount of spotting or bleeding very early in pregnancy, about 10 to 14 days after fertilization. Known as implantation bleeding, it happens when the fertilized egg first attaches to the lining of the uterus. This type of bleeding is usually a bit earlier, spottier and lighter in color than a usual period and doesn’t last long.
Many women also experience cramping very early in pregnancy as the uterus begins to enlarge. These cramps are similar to menstrual cramps.
Nausea with or without vomiting
Morning sickness is one of the telltale signs of early pregnancy. Most women feel some sickness around four to eight weeks of pregnancy, but the queasiness can begin as early as two weeks after conception.
Although nausea and vomiting during pregnancy is commonly called morning sickness, it can occur at any time of the day. It seems to stem from the rapidly rising levels of estrogen produced by the placenta and the fetus. These hormones cause the stomach to empty somewhat more slowly, which could be part of the problem. Pregnant women also have a heightened sense of smell, so a variety of odors — such as foods cooking, coffee, perfume or cigarette smoke — can trigger nausea.
Food aversions or cravings
Turning up your nose at certain foods is often the first hint that you’re pregnant. Even the smell of some foods may cause a wave of nausea in early pregnancy. One study suggests that pregnant women experience a unique aversion to coffee in the early weeks of pregnancy. Meat, dairy products and spicy foods are other common objects of repulsion.
Food cravings are common, too. Like most other symptoms of pregnancy, these food preferences can be chalked up to hormonal changes. Pregnant women typically find that their food tastes change somewhat, especially in the first trimester, when hormones have the strongest impact.
Many pregnant women find themselves running to the bathroom more often than usual. During the first trimester of pregnancy, this is caused by the enlarging uterus pushing on your bladder.
If you’re pregnant, you may be troubled by frequent, mild headaches. Early in pregnancy, headaches may be the result of increased blood circulation caused by hormonal changes.
Constipation is another common early indication of pregnancy. An increase in progesterone causes digestion to slow down, so food passes more slowly through the gastrointestinal tract, which can lead to constipation.
You’re a no-nonsense kind of woman — so what’s with this crying over Hallmark commercials? The flood of hormones in your body in early pregnancy can make you unusually emotional and weepy. Swings in your mood, from bliss to deep gloom, also are common, especially in the first trimester.
Faintness and dizziness
It’s common for pregnant women to be lightheaded or dizzy. These sensations usually result from circulatory changes as your blood vessels dilate and your blood pressure drops. Early in pregnancy, faint feelings may also be triggered by low blood sugar.
Raised basal body temperature
Your basal body temperature (BBT) is your oral temperature when you first wake up in the morning. This temperature spikes slightly soon after ovulation and remains at that level until your next period. If you’ve been charting your BBT to determine when you ovulate, its continued elevation for more than two weeks may mean you’re pregnant. In fact, BBT stays elevated throughout your pregnancy.
Are you really pregnant?
Unfortunately, these signs and symptoms aren’t unique to pregnancy. Some can indicate that you’re getting sick or that your period is about to start. And, conversely, you can be pregnant without ever experiencing these symptoms.
Still, if you notice any of the tip-offs on this list, make plans to take a home pregnancy test, especially if you’re not keeping track of your menstrual cycle or if it varies widely from one month to the next. Also take extra good care of yourself. You just might be taking care for two.
Our teenwire.com experts get hundreds of e-mails a week asking the same question: “Am I pregnant?” It’s a really nerve-racking thought. But before you freak out, take a deep breath and take the following steps.
Assess the Situation
Don’t panic. Ask yourself if it’s actually possible that you could be pregnant. What did you do, sexually speaking?
Pregnancy can happen any time ejaculate (“cum”) or pre-ejaculate (“pre-cum”) is spilled inside the vagina or on or near the vulva. Here are some examples of sex play that do NOT cause pregnancy:
Kissing ,masturbation ,body rubbing, oral sex, anal sex.
These are types of outercourse, and they won’t cause pregnancy — unless ejaculate or pre-ejaculate comes into contact with the vagina or vulva.
Did You Get Your Period?
It isn’t possible to have a period and be pregnant. But it is possible to be pregnant and have vaginal bleeding that may seem to be a period — but this is rare.
Keep in mind that while a missed period is a symptom of pregnancy, there are many other reasons why a girl might miss her period — such as stress, illness, or a diet that’s too low in fat. Of course, if you’ve been having unprotected vaginal intercourse and you’ve missed a period, a pregnancy test may be the wisest choice you can make.
Take a Pregnancy Test
If a woman thinks she might be pregnant, the first thing she needs to do is find out for sure, either by going to a health clinic for confidential testing or by taking a home pregnancy test. She can call 1-800-230-PLAN to schedule an appointment for a pregnancy test at a Planned Parenthood health center.
Home pregnancy tests are available at pharmacies, and they usually cost about $ 8-15 in the U.S. Pregnancy tests are effective early — as soon as a few days after a missed period. But be sure to follow exactly the directions on the package in order to get an accurate result.
Women who take home pregnancy tests often go to clinics to have the results confirmed by a health care provider. Also, if the test is positive, and the woman is pregnant, the clinician can offer counseling on the woman’s pregnancy options.
It’s All in the Timing
If you’ve had unprotected sex within the past five days, there’s still hope. Emergency contraception (EC) can reduce the risk of pregnancy after unprotected vaginal intercourse. Emergency contraception pills (ECPs) can reduce the risk of pregnancy if started within 120 hours (five days) of unprotected vaginal intercourse. The sooner they’re taken, the better. If started within 72 hours of unprotected sex, they can reduce the risk of pregnancy by 75 to 89 percent.
For more information on emergency contraception, call 1-800-230-PLAN for the Planned Parenthood center nearest you, or 1-888-NOT-2-LATE. You can also ask about emergency contraception at any public or women’s health center, or your clinician’s office.
Be Prepared Next Time
Why go through all that drama again? Besides, partners often find that sex is a lot more comfortable and enjoyable when they aren’t worrying about pregnancy. Teens who have vaginal intercourse need to make choices about birth control.
