Coming up on our one year anniversary in August and decided to TTC! Weddingbee was my bible while wedding planning and now that we are trying to have a baby decided to come back and see what everyone is up to!
Anyway this is our first month trying and I am having a lot of weird symptoms but I don’t want to get my hopes up just yet.
I don’t know if a thread like this exists already but I would really want to hear any symptoms you guys might have had in the first two weeks of conception!

Congrats! Very exciting. I think there are plenty of posts of “early pregnancy symptoms” so you could find it if you search. but for me, before i even got my positive, my 2 main symptoms were creamy/lotiony CM and nausea- believe it or not. Other than that, nothing was that different. I may have been a little bit more tired/sluggish, or that could have been a fluke.

I only had a heightened sense of smell. The rest didn’t come in until wks 6 or 7, which was when I got tired.

I’m assuming you mean 2 weeks after conception, right? The signs I had at that point weren’t all that obvious. My waking temps started going up at about a week after conception, and my heart rate was elevated (my normal resting HR is 70, I was at 90-100+ for a while there, even though I had been training for a triathlon at the time.) I didn’t have any classic symptoms (nausea, exhaustion, sore breasts, etc.) until 6 or 7 wks.
Anyway, there are other threads on this, so it would probably be worth checking those out.

I was def. tired- but I think that may have had to do with the fact that it was my wedding! We had a bar b-que the day after the wedding and I had to go take a nap during it because I was so tired. I just thought it had to do with the exhustion of the wedding events- but I think it was a combo of both!

Sore boobs!! They got bigger and starting hurting, sort of how they get right before my period. But they kept getting bigger and they kept hurting worse! I never understood how anyone could say their boobs felt like bricks until I laid on the floor on my stomach at 6 weeks. No joke, I felt like I had BRICKS poking into me. Ouch.
Other symptoms… I felt a lot of cramping. And bloating. And… tmi… constipation. I was constipated about 4 or 5 days after conception and stayed that way. Uggg.
GOOD LUCK! This is such an exciting time!!!!

Honestly i thought i was getting my period anyday, it was almost the same exact smyptoms. tired, crampy, aches in my body, etc. BUT they just calmed down a day before my period was due- which was weird. looking back i did have a hieghted sense of smell. this is weird but my boobs actually hurt less while i was waiting for my period to come instead of more like they usually do when yor pregnant. i think its differnt for everyone though. symptoms can varty so much.

I was tired a lot more than usual. And even though I had only Been 2 days late, I was cramping like I was habing my period. It was miserable. I thought I was going to start any time.
Morning sickness didn’t start until the end of week 4/start of week 5. Same with heightened sense of smell.

And I agree with PP… symptoms vary SOOOO much between people. The symptoms I had were NOTHING like one of my friends that was pregnant.

I’m 5 weeks now (3 weeks post conception) and I’ve been exhausted. I’ve also been kind of achy like before I would start my period. My boobs were really sore too…and they still are lol. This week I started getting hot flashes and nausea.

I thought of another symptom… veins in my boobs! I’ve heard other people say this, but I have no idea when other people notice them. A few days before my expected period, I noticed that I could see all of the veins through my boobs, and they were very dark. Greenish/blue. This is a very weird symptom… I hadn’t really heard of it before it happened to me!

I forgot to add that my temps were also a lot higher than usual during my 2ww!

With our first LO the very very first symptom I had was (TMI) vaginal dryness. Quickly followed by nausea, cramping, bloating, and exhaustion. Sore breasts came later for me, but man! »Ouch.

I was extremely bloated! I also had very sensitive boobs and was pretty tired.

Did anyone get a mild, constant pain in their lower abdomen? I think I’m about 11 DPO and there is this not sharp but almost constant pain in my lower left abdomen that I can pinpoint quite clearly. I’m not sure what it is but was wondering if it could possibly be from implantation…
