Symptoms may not be there.

Start with proper supplements and healthy diet.

Detailed Answer:
You should consult your gynecologist and start with the antenatal vitamins and folic acid supplements. Do get an ultrasound scan done to confirm the duration of pregnancy and to rule out ectopic preganncy.
