Commenting to follow! I just got my BFP today at 10DPO. Since about 7-8 DPO, I’ve had stretchy/crampy feelings in my abdomen, slightly sore boobs (definitely not so bad that they’re painful to touch like a lot of women get), gassiness, and back pain. 

As for morning sickness and such, I’ve read that typically kicks in around 6 weeks.

Congrats on your bfp!! I had no symptoms at all except sore bb’s, for the whole of my first trimester. I’m 21 weeks now and am starting to feel it – pretty bad hip and back pain.  But up until a week ago, pretty much nothing!!

I’m 7w2d and have some symptoms but not as strong or as many as I would have hoped or expected. Sore boobs since BFP, tired all the time, bad sleeping (but could be stress), hungry all the time, and only slight nausea when I’m really hungry. But for most of those, I really could be reading into it.

Did anyone else feel like symptoms got worse after getting the BFP? I’m going about my business today and just feel like I’m getting more tiredness and stretchy abdomen feelings by the minute. Think I’m just more aware of the symptoms, are they getting more pronounced as hormones increase, or both?

I’ve had mild cramping here and there during the day ever since before my BFP. I’m 6w4d today. Around my BFP, I had tender, swollen breasts, increased urination, and a “feeling”. Sore breasts decreased within about a week (still a bit sore these days, but definitely much better). Since about 5w4days (so the past week), I have noticed nauseas, food aversions, and FATIGUE. I’ve gone to bed between 830-9 for the past week, because I can’t possibly stay up any later. Anything dairy or with dairy in it makes me want to vomit. And I find the nausea usually starts when I wake up, and lasts for several hours in the morning. No actual vomiting, just nauseal. It tends to come in waves a few times during the day/evening as well

I’m in the opposite camp I have had A LOT of symptoms since 9DPO (BFP on 11DPO and currently 4w6d).

I have had exhaustion, waves of nausea, gass, heartburn, smell sensitivity, cramps (although they have minimized now), sore boobs (which have gradually gotten more sore), sleep restlessness and congestion.

@terpalum10:  I think I had convinced myself that my symptoms were non-symptoms or related to my period coming (slight cramping, sore boobs, tiredness), but then when I got my BFP, I “allowed” myself to realize that they were abnormal, and in doing so definitely started to feel them more, pretty much right away. If that makes sense.

Right around 6 weeks MS started for me. I didn’t have sore boobs or smell sensitivity or anything else up until that point.

@kate02121:  that makes perfect sense and is exactly how I feel! You described it better than I could.

I had nothing right away and then at about 7 weeks started fee feeling exhausted , sore chest and constant nausea . It lasted until about 11 weeks and now at 20 weeks I only have symptoms like that once in awhile … Definitely not gone but a lot less than before! Enjoy it while you can and pray that you feel well the whole 9 months!
