kiram : MargaritaVille : I was so cold during my pregnancy, so disappointed because I was hoping it would help me not freeze in my office that winter. No such luck. Finally got warm with about a month to go, in time for the hottest May/June I have ever experienced.
I’m curious, if I manage to have a second pregnancy, if it will be the same or not. My main thing was intense middle of the night thirst the first time. My pms symptoms are different now post baby, so pregnancy might be too…

When I was pregnant with both of my daughters I had a really weird pain in my chest and shoulder. Not at all sure what that would be, but those are the only times I’ve had those feelings. Both were a day or two before anything come up on a test. I had a pregnancy that ended at 12 weeks and another that ended at 5 weeks, and I didn’t have any signs before either of them.

Yes. This pregnancy (37 weeks now) I was nauseous at 8DPO, before I even got a positive. I never get nauseous, so it was a huge sign for me.

Yes. My first pregnancy turned out to be a chemical but from only 2-3 days after I ovulated I had STRONG pregnancy symptoms. Breasts about doubled in size and were very painful, felt exhausted and quesy, etc. I never experience PMS symptoms normally so this was obvious to me. I tested for about a week until I eventually got a positive lol.
For my next pregnancy, which stuck (18wks now), it was less dramatic. I took a test about 10dpo and it was negative so I just assumed it didn’t happen since I didn’t have the same symptoms as the first time. But the next day I got completely exhausted for no reason and it was unlike me so I tested that afternoon with diluted urine and sure enough I got my BFP.
It really urks me when people say you don’t have symptoms that early. Any time there’s a change in hormones a woman can have symptoms. As soon as the embryo is conceived hormones start to be produced. Some women are just more sensitive than others, and every pregnancy is different. By 13dpo my nipples felt on fire and by 20 dpo I had pretty much every pregnancy symptom on the books. I’m definitely not one of those women that would be able to ignore being pregnant or not know lol.

mrsnnn3 : OMG yes! I forgot about that. For both pregnancies in the first week or two I was absolutely freezing all the time. I kept taking hot baths even though I live in Florida and it’s always warm or hot out.

mrsnnn3 : my PMS and menstruation has also been very different since giving birth. I think this month was the most like my PMS before having my son, but after not having one for so long, I think I forgot.
Update – after all kinds of wonky tests, AF came. Not sure if maybe I just had a weird, off month, or a chemical. We weren’t trying so I’m not bummed either way. I’d love another child, but this time around I’m much more lax about the process. I drove myself insane TTC last time, so now we’re in the NTNP stage and will be happy whenever it happens. Just, please, Dear Jesus, don’t give me a summer baby. I was SOOOO HOTTT with my son that I was burning up in the dead of winter. And I already have 4 birthday’s in the first week of July. My husband isn’t allowed to breathe on me in September and October.
