How soon after BDing did you experience symptoms? only one week after BDing I have been suffering from constant nausea, occasional vomiting and food aversions. FI thinks he has super sperm so he is sure that I am pregnant. I’m not so sure because I wasn’t convinced that our timing was right. I will be waiting for a missed period before I test though.
my question to you is, how early can pregnancy symptoms begin? What were yours? Did you just KNOW that you were pregnant?

Yes, with both babies I just ‘knew’. Do a clearview pregnancy test. Mine came up positive when I was only like a week pregnant!
Congratulations : )

LLMMCC: wow! Okay I will buy that brand when I’m at the store next 🙂 I have done so much research and it all tells me that there aren’t usually any symptoms during the TWW.

With both of my pregnancies I had an inkling that I might be pregnant, but I never assumed, I guess you could say. I didn’t want to count my eggs before they hatched, lol. That being said, the big tip-offs were sore breasts… I never got them when expecting AF.
Unfortunately my last pregnancy ended in MC (Oct. ’13), but the past few days I’ve been experiencing pregnancy symptoms again (4DPO-6DPO). Sore breasts, nausea, gassy… but I’m trying not to over-think/assume. We only BD once in my fertile window (O day, of all things), so it’s highly unlikely to be ‘it’ for us.

I was temping and based on the sustained spike in temp the last few days of my cycle I knew I was pregnant. I wouldn’t say I had symptoms or an actual “feeling” but based on the temp shift I was pretty sure.

I was convinced I was pregnant and I was. Of course it happened on our first try, so I have no clue if it was just wishful thinking or if I did actually know. My first symprtom was tingling nipples at about 5DPO. Then the next day my boobs were extremely sore, which normally happens when I am going to start my period, but not usually that early. So I took a test at 8DPO and there was a hint of a line. At 9DPO there was no questioning it! I used an FRER.

kfiorita: Just a heads up that there are many women (myself included) that just “knew” they were pregnant, due to all of the symptoms you mentioned and even a missed cycle or two… Only to find out they weren’t. It’s a very gutted feeling to find out otherwise, but so easy to jump the gun a little when you are so hopeful that you are. So, just keep in mind to try not to get your hopes up and set yourself up for disappointment. Fingers crossed for you guys, though!

kfiorita: if you’re not pregnant shouldn’t you go to a doctor? Being constantly nauseous and vomiting is not normal.

I never assumed but I thought there was a strong possibility I was pregnant a week after conception. I just felt funny, plus I had a bloody nose, which never happens. I also had really weird dreams. A week after that my sister came to visit and I remember feeling really tired and worn out in a way I hadn’t before. My husband didn’t think I was pregnant because it was only our first month TTC but I took the test at 14 DPO and sure, enough I was pregnant.
Edited to add: my breasts got really sore pretty much immediately.

I didn’t really have any symptoms but I had a feeling I was after a missed period despite the fact that I was so stressed during the last year of college. My husband and I had not planned for little miss but welcomed her even so.

I’m currently thinking that “I just know”, but I am prepared for a letdown once I test at closer date to my expected period.
My breasts have been tender the entire week after BD.
I also had spotting two days ago, and a small amount yesterday too.
I am worried about the spotting, so I am calling my doctor tomorrow to see if I can schedule an appointment.
I have looked this up all over the internet. Some people were right, and some people were saying that our bodies just do crazy things while TTC.
Good luck to you!!!!

Truffle-hunter: thank you for being so concerned! I’ve been to the doctor already and was given some anti nausea pills… I’m going to another doctor today (third time lucky I hope)
I never find doctors all that helpful lol

I knew right away. Sore breasts, blue veins on my breasts, dizziness and fatigue were my give aways. I have never had these problems before so I knew something was up!

Yes, many times. I was only right once, though!

HughJazz: Ha ha!!! Very true! I was sure I was pregnant at least 6 times!!
