Is it possible for a person to show symtoms of being pregnant after a week? Because I had sex with my boyfriend for the first time 8 days ago and just in the last couple of days i've been geting really dizzy and feeling very sick to my stomach. My boyfriends mom said that symtomes when having twins start showing earlier (twins run in both of our family's plus she's had twins)Does any one know if this is true?

It's not possible for someone to be showing symptoms of pregnancy after only a week- if someone is pregnant and at the one week mark, the embryo is still a pretty tiny cluster of cells. Also, some women can go through an entire pregnancy without having classics signs, like nausea, etc.

If you're worried about pregnancy, wait a few more days and take a pregnancy test (10-14 days before a test is accurate). That's the clearest symptom of a pregnancy you can get at this point.

Doesn't matter how tiny the embryo is, it's the level of HCG in a woman's system that causes pregnancy symptoms and that level can become quite high when the embryo is still quite tiny-some women are very sensitive to their bodies and DO start showing symptoms as early as 8 days post ovulation. If implantation was early, HCG could have been being produced in the body for 48-72 hours at that point. It's rare, but it happens.

I was pregnant with twins this last fall/winter and while I did have the worst stomach upsets and exhaustion, I didn't experience symptoms until I was about 5.5 weeks pregnant. Pregnancy symptoms can be more intense in twin pregnancies because of the increased level of the pregnancy hormone HCG.
