I had some early early symptoms (like 5-10 DPO). I was absolutely exhausted all the time (still am now at 6 weeks) and I had headaches every day. I was also really really thirsty, I couldn’t drink enough water. Good luck with your TWW!

Everyone is different, so your body will react differently in early pregnancy than someone else.  I only had one day of symptoms my entire first trimester, and that was just one day of sore breasts – no fatigue, no morning sickness, no food aversions.  Hell, if I didn’t actually test and get a positive back, I could have been a candidate for that “I didn’t know I was pregnant” show – LOL

The TWW is extremely hard to get through – seems like it takes f-o-r-e-v-e-r!!  Good luck with the rest of it and let us know how your testing goes 🙂

You might just be sick. That’s really, really fast to be feeling such symptoms – if you were pregnant, you likely would have just/might not have implanted yet.

I had really sore boobs a week and a half after ovulation. I started feeling fatigued (crazy tired) and dizzy around a week after that. It got a lot stronger up until 9 weeks.

I had nausea pretty much from 1 DPO. Although don’t get too worked up, I know of plenty of women who over analyze and can actually make themselves get pregnancy symptoms cuz they want it so bad. The TWW is torture like that. Hopefully it’ll go by fast for you and you’ll get your BFP in the end 🙂

@brighteyedgirl: I had all of those…including trouble sleeping and I was actually drooling a little more than usual. lol. But I thought I was about to start my period.

Morning sickness started shortly before week 5.

good luck!

I agree with crayfish…I don’t think 5 days past ovulation is enough time to have symptoms. I mean, even if the egg gets fertilized, it still has to implant for the pregnancy to stick, and implantation takes like 6-12 days. Plus, something like 30-50% of fertilized eggs fail to implant, so even after conception you’re not technically pregnant. I’m no doctor, but I think if someone had pregnancy symptoms immediately after ovulation I might wonder if it was just a coincidence.

I had one cycle where I was absolutely sure I was pregnant, with all the symptoms. I was not. But since actually getting pregnant, I have had only a few symptoms, and those didn’t start until about 5-6 weeks. Pregnancy and your body is a tricky thing.

Oh man, I think I had symptoms right from the start. I’m only 4 weeks now and I have already experienced fatiguw, nausea, gas, bloating, cramping, backache, sore breasts… plus, I think my breasts have ALREADY grown. Thank god I have a couple bras with tags still on, I’m going to go swap them out.

@brighteyedgirl:Thanks!! Do you usually have the same kinds of things as PMS symptoms too or is it all not normal for you? My symptoms (except for the constantly thirsty thing) felt like amplified PMS symptoms to me.

@zippylef:Mine have definitely already grown too!!! I’m wearing my bigger bras already…and the ones that are soft and not padded because they are sooo sore.

@brighteyedgirl:Oh that’s definitely a good sign then! I’ll cross my fingers for you, you’ll have to report back 🙂 It’s funny that someone mentioned you’re “boring.” It’s hard to be interesting when all you want to do is sleep! I know that I *feel* boring because I’m so tired all the time and I can’t really get deep into talks with my friends because I’m scared I’ll say something about the baby and give it all away. Hopefully I get interesting again soon!

I was very tired from about 5dpo on but I had also been traveling internationally so thought I was jet-lagged (which may actually have been the case anyway). At 9/10 dpo, I started feeling quite nauseous, at which point I “knew” I was pregnant because I typically have a very strong stomach.

I know how easy it is to overanalyze but sometimes it’s legit! Good luck!
