Around 4 weeks my boobs were huge and hurt. I puked and always felt sick to my stomach. Very tired and craved things like mad.

My first physical signs were an increased heart rate and just a “feeling” that I was pregnant, like a “fullness” in my groin even though it may have been in my head because of course its super tiny like a poppy seed that early. I had an early bfp at only 8dpo so I didn’t really have time to feel anything before my bfp. I didn’t have any other symptoms until the morning all-day sickness started at 6 weeks.

I didnt have signs until around 8 or 9 weeks where I was more tired than normal.  I had food aversions around 11 -13 weeks. Those have been my only signs!

No signs right away but I had a feeling that I was so I decided to try a test and sure enough! That was at 4 weeks. By the 5th week I started feeling sick and gross and my boobs started to hurt. If I hadn’t taken the test I probably would have known for sure by the next week.

Also a constant feeling of being exhausted and tired played in there too.

I tested on Friday, when I was due to start my period Thursday morning.  Thursday night, it felt like a million little needles jabbing me in the nipples.  Other than that, I was relatively symptom-free.

I had cramping immediately and such sore nipples I would flinch when I put my bra on! Other symptoms like being more tired didn’t happen until around 6 weeks. Even with all that, I didn’t test until 7.5 weeks because I swore up and down there was no way I was pregnant! After I found out, I noticed other things like the increased heart rate. The extreme hunger came around 8 weeks or so. Oh, I was bloated since week 4 too. So glad I didn’t (and still don’t – FX!) have any nausea or morning sickness. Especially since my wedding was at 6.5 weeks!

Metal taste in my mouth and sore boobs! Like a week after I got pregnant! I thought I was but took a test the Monday before I was suppose to get my period (On Thursday) It was Neg! Waited missed my period Thursday and Friday. Took a test Saturday morning visit thing POSITIVE!

Edit-After I took the test and it was positive…CUE the “morning sickness” Which I had at night every night same time! But stopped around 12weeks. I also had to take a nap at the same time everyday when I got out of work!

For me, it was intense period-like cramps. From close to 4 weeks, to 6 weeks, there was a lot of cramping. I was always sure my period was coming, or I was going to miscarry, but the Dr said it was completely normal. I didn’t get morning sickness until 7 weeks or so.

Pre-BFP: I had cramps before my period was due (unusual for me), intense hunger, sore boobs, weird pulling sharp pains on the same side I ovulated, and was a bit overly emotional. Also had some weird insomnia where I kept waking up super early like 4 or 5 am. 

Post -BFP: I was very tired, had sore boobs/nipples, and had to pee a lot.  Also starving all the time.  At 6 weeks almost exactly, I got hit with MAJOR nausea and continued to be nauseous until 20 weeks.

Looking back, I’d say my sense of smell was slightly increased the week before my BFP but I didn’t think anything of it at the time. I had no clue I was pregnant until my period didn’t show up, then a few weeks later I was hit with the fatigue and nausea.

@birdie724:  My way of knowing I was pregnant was that my boobs jumped from a full B cup to a D cup. I got tired very early on (around 4-5 weeks I believe), and the nausea kicked in around week 7.
