Even women who have had children before and remember the feelings of early pregnancy, may still have some questions when it happens again.

The first thing women who may be pregnant should do is listen to their body. According to a Parents Magazine interview with Melissa Goist, MD, clinical assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the Ohio State University Medical Center,"The hormones released as soon as you conceive may start causing subtle changes even before they're detectable on a home pregnancy test."
