The day after I got my BFP, so many symptoms hit me hard–frequent peeing, sense of smell, nausea, gas. It didn’t occur to me once that it was in my head, because it was so intense.

PS. Congrats! I am glad you find it thrilling, because I felt miserable from day 1! 🙂

@Songbird29:  My symptoms hit hard within the first few days after getting the BFP at 16dpo. It’s crazy. I’m not sure if it’s your head playing with you or real symptoms but they felt very real to me! The only thing I had before the test was hot flashes that I attributed to other things.

Congrats!!! Yes, peeing a lot is a side effect of the uterus expanding to make room for baby. The uterus sits right on top of the bladder, so it will put pressure on the bladder until it grows out of the pelvic bones (in early second drimester).
Some things that worked for me are to lean forward when going to the bathroom, it will push on the bladder to make sure it is fully emptied. Also, avoid hot beverages and diuretic beverages right before bedtime (or when you don’t want to run to the bathroom every 10 minutes for an hour). Finally, I started to gage how full I thought my bladder was (I got sick of sprinting to the bathroom for a few drops), I’m usually always at 10% full, at 10% it is an annoyance, at 80% I consider it an emergency.

In the head or real… does it matter it sure feels real!

I started having symptoms really early before I tested positive. I didnt think I was pregnant at all so I dont think it was in my head, so early symptoms do happen.
