Signs of pregnancy
Two or three weeks after sex if you are pregnant you may notice some of the following:

- A shorter or lighter period
- Feeling bloated or having period like cramps
- Feeling tired all the time
- Nausea or vomiting (this can happen at any time of day)
- Appetite change
- Tender and swollen breasts
If your pregnancy is unexpected it is important to talk about you options with someone as soon as possible.You may also like to see what Dr Sue Bagshaw has to say about looking at your options.
If you want to discuss all options chat to a pregnancy counsellor. Some pregnancy help lines are staffed around the clock so whenever you call someone will be happy to talk to you. Pregnancy services are listed under “P” in the White Pages.
