I just have to laugh at some of the “symptoms” that I experience. Something new happens to my body and BAM! It must mean I’m pregnant! The latest and greatest? Hiccups. That’s right. For the past three days I have been randomely hiccuping throughout the day. The first day I did’t think anything of it. The second day, I took a little bit of notice and today…well today I’m convinced. This must be a sign of early pregnancy! 😉 I’m currently 2-3 days past ovulation so naturally I am on high alert to the signals.
I did a quick little search for hiccups and pregnancy symptoms and while I did find that some other women have also questioned hiccups like I did…all of the responses were pretty much a flat, no.
Just wondering if any of you are doing the same thing as I am and turning normal things into big signs! 🙂

We’re not TTC yet, just NTNP but I totally get you… Once I know that it can happen at any point, you start thinking more into everything! I hiccup a lot normally haha so I probably wouldn’t think much of it.

@Merelton: I’m 8w2days into my pregnancy and i had hiccups very early too… just a bit of a warning, you might end up like me and come to find out you are expecting twins… at my 8week appt we had and ultrasond that confirmed I am carrying twins… no wonder my symptoms kicked in so early, and so very strongly… of course it could just be a coincidence… i would def. take a test as soon as you are able to, to get rid of the curiousity. 🙂

I did this when I was trying *not* to get pregnant. Trust me, any symptom you put into Google will come back with pregnancy as like the top choice. Hiccuping? Pregnancy. Sore breasts? Pregnancy. Cramping? Pregnancy. Turning into a golden retriever? Pregnancy.
I just had to think rationally and tell myself that many PMS symptoms/symptoms of the pill are similar to pregnancy symptoms. Also, implantation is 6-12 days after ovulation, and your body doesn’t realize that it’s pregnant until a few days after that, so a lot of the early stuff was all in my head.

For what it’s worth, implantation of a fertilized egg typically doesn’t happen until 7 to 10 DPO, so there wouldn’t be any signs of pregnancy prior to that. If it helps with the symptom spotting, just remember that the “real” stuff won’t happen until then!

@Merelton: I totally symptom spotted the first month we were trying but the second month when I was actually pregnant I didn’t even bother.
I will say that I never get hiccups and have had them twice while being pregnant. So maybe it is a good sign! 🙂
Some signs I had the few days before my BFP were extreme dizziness (running into walls, dizzy while driving and had to pull over) extreme light headedness and sore/englarged breasts.
@adeharo210: Hello fellow wine country bee! Congrats on your twins, oh my double the surprise!

@adeharo210: Congratulatons on the twins. I know that it’s too early for me to have any real symptoms…but your post freaks me out just a bit, seeing as my mom had twins as well! I’ve always wondered if this would be something that’s passed down to me or my sister. I’ll have to pay attention if/when I get a real BFP and/or symptoms to see if hiccups continue!

@cmbr: Ha! I know what you mean! According to Google I either have a fatal disease or I’m pregnant. 🙂

@Merelton: thank you, we’re very excited (and nervous)… but don’t freak out, like everyone else has mentioned, sometimes we pay more attention to little things when we’re actually paying attention lol… keep us posted 🙂
@Treejewel19: hello fellow wine country bee… thank you 🙂

Lol! It’s easy to symptom spot! I’ve done that so many times!
@mrspitcher8: It’s pretty rare to have happen I know, but I have to disgree with what you said anyway. Some of us DO actually get true pregnancy symptoms prior to implantation. Maybe it’s something to do with personal genetics? Who really knows, but I do know that I’ve been pregnant 7 times and other than my very first pregnancy where I was still getting to know my body (had just started charting at that point), I’ve found that there are certain symtoms that I get ONLY when I’m pregnant. And I get them very very early! I’ve accurately predicted my last 6 pregnancies much earlier than any test showed (I know because I’m a poas-aholic lol), and with my last 2, I predicted them at just 2dpo!

When I had my son I would get a couple random deep hiccups and I knew I pregnant…weird I know but I was. But I also noticed later he had them often

Actually with my first bfp I got crazy hiccups in my two week wait. Don’t normally hiccup like that. Sorry to make your obsession even worse now hehe 🙂
