    Oh my boobs were on fire.  I really noticed it when I did my kickboxing and cycle class at the gym.  Ouch!!

    Strangely enough, I had no symptoms whatsoever. I always have clogged pores and breast soreness between O and AF, but before my BFP I experienced neither of these. I did have increased sticky CM but it was the same as other cycles after O.

    I don’t think this is common, though.

    I remember about 7dpo, I was so exausted.  I had never been more exausted in my life.  There was really no explination for it.  I went home that night after work and was in bed at 6pm and did not move until the next morning.  I didn’t have that overwhelming exuastion feeling again until I was at least 5 weeks.  

     

    Also, I tested once before my bfp and  got a negative so I didn’t think I was pregnant.  About 2 days after that I got SO bloated, my jeans didn’t fit but my weight wasn’t that up. I think that was a sign too.  That was probably like 14dpo, but I just hadn’t retested.

    Absolutely no symptoms except implantation bleeding and cramping (which I thought was my period). 

    I didn’t get any symptoms until maybe 6 weeks and at that point it was very sporadic (one morning I felt a little sick but I was fine the rest of the week, one day I was exhausted but fine all the other days). 

    I didn’t get consistent pregnancy symptoms that stuck around (MS and fatigue, mainly) until around 8 weeks.

    So I can’t vote in your poll.

    I had cramping a few days before I was expecting my period. And a day or two of feeling bone tired. I thought it was just pre-menstrual stuff, but no, I was pregnant.

    Ironically the month before, I felt queasy, my breasts were sore and I had some back pain, I thought for sure this was it. Wrong. My period turned up right on time that month.

    I ended up getting my first BFP at 3w3d, and confirmed it at 3w5d (8 and 10 DPO for me, respectively. I implanted at 6 DPO based on temps).

    The symptoms were identical to the symptoms I usually experienced waiting for my period. I had cramps. I had my usual backache. My boobs were sore. But…that was very normal for me.

    Around 4 weeks (the time of my actual missed period — I ended up getting a BFP 3 – 5 days before I was due), my breasts did swell and began aching in a pattern that was different from what I usually had when I had my period. The cramps largely subsided, too. I never had implantation bleeding at THE TIME (I did, however, found two single drops of brown blood around the time I was 5 weeks mixed into cervical mucus — I was freaked. That was the only incidence of bleeding, though, and I’m now 8 weeks).

    Morning sickness/nausea started like clockwork right before 6 weeks. While certainly some women DO experience MS around 4 weeks, I think that’s more often a result of not calculating properly. It’s highly unusual to get morning sickness before 5 weeks.

    Around 7 weeks, my morning sickness started to turn into constant burping. If I’m not burping, I feel sick to my stomach. I’ve heard burping is a classic “first sign” for some women. It is UNMISTAKABLE…mine is constant.

    I got my BFP yesterday, at 4w 4d. Apart from feeling one sharp stab on the right side of my pelvis a couple of days ago (thinking that was implantation), I’ve not felt anything except cramps yesterday and today. Nothing bad at all though, just like normal period cramps.

    My nips were constantly hard which was totally atypical.  Also, I had very odd cramping for 2-3 days before AF was due.  I also was totally raging – like anything anyone did that would normally just minorly annoy me made me want to bite their head off. That was actually the biggest tip off for me that something wasn’t quite right.

    Pappy8:  I was super bloated and gassy, but I didn’t think that meant I was pregnant, I just thought I was bloated and gassy (haha gross). Then I had bad cramping with no period arriving, that’s when I started to think I was. I waited to test until my period was a couple days late, though, because I didn’t want to see a BFN!

    I had cramping for about 10 days before my BFP at 14dpo. That’s what tipped me off, because I never have cramping till the day of AF.

    Exhausted. Like sleeping good at night plus two naps a day.. My boobs hurt like crazy, very sore, and different than just pms soreness. Bloating, not huge, I just feel puffy. I’m now 5 weeks and hungry all the time. (if I don’t eat I start feeling sick)

    My only symptoms that early on were sore boobs (not much worse than normal pre-AF soreness though), light cramping (also not much different than pre-AF), and generally feeling sick, I had a sore throat/runny nose and just felt like I was coming down with a cold. About a week after my BFP the tiredness and bloating came in, and the second week VERY slight nausea when I get too hungry or am too full.
