    I had a slew of symptoms.  Breakouts, constipations, spotting, food aversions, sore nipples/breasts, fatigue, and frequent urination. 

    The ones that were different from my normal pms symptoms were:

    food aversions

    frequent urination



    Keeping my FX that this is your month!

    None! I was really shocked by my BFP, even though we were charting and I knew our timing was good. Symptoms kicked in about a week after the BFP.

    I’ve had a couple: cramping, gas, tiredness and frequent urination. My DH said I was symptom spotting but when I got my BFP I knew I read my body correctly. Good luck for you!

    We were TTC for 3 months before we were successful. The first 2 months I was a terrible symptom spotter – pretty much every symptom you named…the month we got our BFP I didnt have any of the above but I did feel like I was getting a UTI. I actually wrote a post about it and everyone said no not a symptom of early pregnancy (think I was 6-7 dpo) then one person said yes she thought she was getting a UTI before her BFP too….2 days later the UTI symptoms were gone but we had our BFP!

    My first symptoms were fatigue, thirst and cramping. Previous cycles I had felt other things but this one… I had cramps around 7 dpo that felt like AF but a little more dull. I god my BFP at 10 dpo. Good luck to you!

    The only symptom I had that was different than normal PMS symptoms was that I would get very dizzy upon standing up, especially if I hadn’t eaten anything for awhile.   My nausea didn’t start until about 6 weeks.

    The only symptom I had a couple weeks prior to BFP was breakouts. Bad. At 11 weeks still have them. U can play connect the dots on my face ugh! After BFP it was extreme fatigue and loss of appetitie until about a week ago.

    Two days before getting my BFP I was SO convinced my period was coming I cried in the middle of Ikea.

    Then when I realized I was crying in Ikea, I started wondering if maybe I was pregnant!

    And I was! My boobs got super tender the day before my BFP. But before that (from like 7-12DPO), I felt EXACTLY like my period was coming. Cramping, tired, hungry, cranky, emotional.

    Then I hit 5 weeks and got knocked over the head with “typical” pregnancy symptoms–Food adversions, smell adversions, extreme acne (Which I never had in adolescence), exhaustion.

    @lazybee123:  I’m right there with you! I think I’m about 10-11 DPO, but since I wasn’t temping or doing OPKs there’s a chance I O’d a few days later than I thought. However, AF still isn’t here… Normally she would have come yesterday or today, but no sign of her yet.

    In the meantime, I’ve had weird pinching and crampy feelings all over my belly. I almost never have cramps with AF. I get wicked back pain, but none of that so far. I’ve also been a little gassy and have broken out on my back and chest like whoa. Not cool. I tested Sat and got a BFN, but I think it’s too soon to be accurate, especially if I O’d later than I thought. We BD enough in both possible FWs for it to take, so I’m just holding out now. The waiting is driving me crazy!! I don’t want to burn more money POAS if it’s too soon, but every day that AF doesn’t come I feel like I should get an answer dang it!!

    My only symptom pre-BFP was a lot of heartburn!! Which is weird because I never get heartburn.  But i had a very early loss a week after my BFP, so maybe that’s why I didn’t have a lot of symptoms!

     I didnt get bloated, crampy, hungry or broke out like I used to leading to AF.  I had no symptoms at all the cycle I got my BFP.
