GrassHouse:  Sore boobs, stuffy nose, and crazy vivid dreams. All happened overnight. I was only 8 or 9 dpo. I’ve had sore boobs before my period, but these were different. Heavier, strange to explain. And same with the stuffy nose. It felt different than alleries or being sick. I found out suuuper early. I barely had a squinter. 

Edit to add: my CM also didn’t dry up like it usually would in the past.

ddd sleep pattern  I would wake up two hours before the alarm.  Also, peeing a lot and higher level of thirst.  This started right before I found out, so around 8ish DPO.  I’m 5w1d and woke up with nausea for the first time this morning. 🙁

I had some nausea right around 6 weeks, but it was only 2 mornings and then it disappeared.  Also one of those days I was really tired, but that was just one day.

Right before 8 weeks I had awful fatigue that showed up and never went away until I delivered lol. The real MS showed up shortly after that.

If I had any symptoms before then it had to be so minor or sporadic that I never noticed it or paid any attention to it (wasn’t ttc officially so I wasn’t symptom-spotting).

Sore boobs and mild cramping before PMS was suppose to start.  I posted about the cramping (thought it was just my body adjusting to its own hormones after birth control) and a lovely ‘bee told me to take a pee test.  lol  Oh, the fatigue, too.  I just felt like napping all the time or sitting in bed.

GrassHouse: The Friday before my missed period I was at work and almost fainted from being so dizzy. I passed it off as a side effect of my low Vitamin D. After that I got really chapped lips and skin. Got a negative on Sunday and a positive on Wednesday with a FRER.

Sleepy/tiredness the week I was supposed to get my period.

DH and I drive to work together, so I would have him drive and I would sleep on the way home. Didn’t occur to me that I could be pregnant till I missed my period. Then it all made sense.

Sore boobs. So so so sore. They started pretty much the exact same time my period was due

I felt implantation. Then my boobs got sore and I missed my period. I knew something was up…I’m really in tuned with my body.

Cramping was my first symptom.  I felt implantation at 7DPO as a sharp twinge/pinch in my abdomen on the left side.  It happened a couple times over a few minutes.  After that I had very mild cramping on and off every day–much more mild than pre-period cramps.  Then the crazy peeing and thirst started around 11DPO, after my faint BFP on 10DO.

For me, I didn’t recognize any of my symptoms as pregnancy symptoms until after my missed period.  I had sore boobs, but they weren’t any different than my normal pre-period sore boobs, (some women say it feels different for them, but for me, it was identical).  I had some cramping, but it was the same cramping I got a few days before my period every cycle, (again, some women say it just felt different to them, but not so in my case).  I didn’t notice any nausea (although slight nausea right before my period was not uncommon for me) or changes in CM.  I even had implantation bleeding, but it was a tiny amount, and I usually spotted the night before AF showed up, so I didn’t think anything of it.  

I felt EXACTLY like I was about to get my period, so I didn’t even bother testing when I didn’t start when I thought I would.  I had a short LP and had started taking Progessence Plus to try to lengthen it a little, and just assumed it was the PP working – which it WAS, just not in the way I’d thought!  LOL!

The other symptoms, like tiredness, frequent urination, and nausea didn’t show up until after my missed period and subsequent BFP.  I also never got some of the symptoms, like the super-sensitive sense of smell. I had a coworker who would leave the breakroom if you cooked something in the microwave that she didn’t like, but I’m 27 weeks pregnant now and haven’t noticed any change in my sniffer at all.

Looking back, my first symptom was probably the sore breasts a few days before my missed period, but again, I had that before every period in the two years we were TTC so it meant nothing to me.

Sore boobs and tiredness, but not till about 14 dpo (when my period would have come anyway). I always had sore boobs during my luteal phase, but these were so sore that just lying down hurt and the nipples were especially sensitive. I didn’t have any nausea until 7 weeks.

GrassHouse:  My first symptom should have been the sore boobs but I didn’t think it was out of the ordinary.  When my husband and I saw a movie together and he poked me in the boob it really hurt and I couldn’t figure out why I was so sensitive.  But the one that I noticed right away was the smell.  I could smell everything and anything when I was pregnant.

I had zero symptoms! I was trying, using charts and a Clearblue Easy Fertility Monitor, so I knew pretty quick I was pregnant (10 DPO). I got my BFP early August and I probably had a week of feeling like I was hungover in maybe mid-September.

I felt really nauseous the week I should have gotten my period. I was also super tired…so I stayed home from working thinking I would just sleep it off. Nope. Realized I missed my period, took the test, found out I was pregnant. This was the begining of my all day, every day sickness. lol <br /><br />
