Just curious of what everyone went thru!
What was the dead give away that made you think im pregnant? and how soon before your expected period were you experiencing symptoms?
I ask because im still over a week away from period, and having some symptoms already! I know its too soon to test, but ill ( secretly, or not so secretly) be excited to!

To be quite honest, I didn’t have any symptoms that were different from my usual PMs symptoms. In fact, I even went out and got a huge sushi lunch thinking I was going to get AF that day or next. I didn’t test until my missed period. LOL
The two cycles before, I had all these crazy symptoms (or so I thought) but obviously, they were both negative.

My very first symptom was fatigue. Serious fatigue. My second was the missed period. Then my breasts started hurting soon after.

My nipples were ALWAYS hard, and my boobs were very tender. I also had some sharp pinching sensations in my uterus. I was also very emotional.

None of the above. Starting from 5DPO and continuuing still (15DPO) I’ve had an ache at my pubic bone that’s mostly really mild, but sometimes flares to medium or intense for a few seconds/minutes. It feels like someone has their hand there and is pushing against it. It’s definitely not cramps, and doesn’t go as deep as cramps. The other has been a throbbing pain in my breasts around the nipple area that comes and goes. It will happen in my left breast for a few minutes, then hours later happen in my right breast. Not a sharp shooting pain, but a deep pulsing/throbbing pain.
The reason I thought I was pregnant was that the last time I got a BFP I had the same ache at my pubic bone around 6-7DPO.

I’m about 99% sure that I threw up the moment the sperm met the egg. From that moment on I was nauseas, had swollen brests, was EXTREMLY bloated, was very sensitive to smell, and I had the runs. I had some spotting but later figured out that was implantation bleeding. I had tested 3 times cuz I felt terrible and each time it came back negative. 5 days after my missed period my doc did a blood test and I was pregnant. I kept telling myself it was PMS but Darling Husband was convinced that we were with child.

Fatigue! For a week or more before I figured out I was pregnant, I would come home from work and fall asleep on the couch with my head in DH’s lap before 7 PM.

My best friend said she knew somethiign was up when she woke up and her fingers were visibly swollen, she hadn’t even missed a period yet.

I had cramping, which felt like period cramps on 12DPO. Cramps continued into the next day with no period. Two days later I tested, and BFP!

I had absolutly no symptoms at all. On regular cycles, I never got PMS symptoms, and nothing was different that cycle except that my temperature didn’t drop.
I was so convinced I wasn’t pregnant that after I took the first dollar store test that was positive, I thought it must be a false positive and I had a small glass of wine with dinner that night. It wasn’t until a digital was positive the next morning that I realized I was actually knocked up.
First real symptom didn’t arrive until around 5 weeks, and it was swollen, sore boobs and perma-hard nipples.

I had cramps, but weird ones that didn’t feel like my normal period cramps. These were tight and sharp and very short. That’s why I tested =)

Exhaustion! Falling asleep while guys were drilling my front stoop at 4pm. In bed by 8:30.

I thought Aunt Flo was making her way into town. I cried for 2-3 days before I tested. I had diarrhea for 2-3 days before I tested, I had that with my previous pregnancy last year. No cramps. BUT the big one for me was my gums bled when I flossed and that was the day I tested, which was the day before AF was to hit

I answered “no symptoms” although I did have slightly sore/tender breasts, cramping/bloating and a 1.5 week long headache that all started early March and lasted through my +FRER mid-April. We were NTNP in March, and I was CONVINCED I was pregnant in March. I have been off the pill for almost 8 years, so I thought it was weird out of the blue I’d have symptoms like that. Well, definitely not pregnant in March, so I figured all of those symptoms were just in my head or I was “looking for them” to be occuring.
I tested 6-7 days before my period in April with a +FRER. I had NO CLUE I was pregnant. I actually tested for ovulation the day before! The only thing different was I was so hungry and craving sweets like crazy, but that happens from time to time so I just though it was a phase. I still had the symptoms that started in March (minus the headache), but I just ignored it since toward the end of March I had a normal period.
