the very first super early symptom i had was around 11-12 DPO. My sense of smell was SO effed up to the point of certian things made me nauseous feeling, granted i work in a kitchen for a living so it was a super obvious symptom that day. I took a pregnancy test the next morning and got my first positive. 

But the off sense of smell symptom literally only lasted one day then disappeared.

First, good luck and I hope you get your BFP!

However, PPs are correct that there is absolutely nothing in your body to cause symptoms until hormone levels are high enough to register positive on a test. Looking back, almost anyone can “remember” things that were different or unusual in the first days after an egg was fertilized, but the reality is that your body doesn’t even know that until it implants. So those “symptoms” are either imagined or coincidences.

With all my pregnancies, I did have a very strong feeling immediately after the BD that resulted in pregnancy; for lack of a better word, I “knew” I was pregnant. But I also realize that’s completely impossible and nothing more than a coincidence. Indeed, an egg could not even have been fertilized at that point, so there were not even any symptoms to spot.

With my first pregnancy, my left boob became noticeably huge a couple days before my bfp.  Why only the left?  No idea, but it’s still way bigger 4 years later.  In subsequent pregnancies, my main symptom has been crying over something stupid the day before the bfp.  Hormones are weird.

Sounds like you could test anytime if you are at 12dpo+…fingers crossed for you!

lovetotravel02092017 :  I had no symptoms and did not symptom spot. Pregnancy symptoms did not surface until well past I knew I was already pregnant. The symptoms are essentially the same as having a period but if you’re looking for something you can believe you feel/gave anything. When I thought I was pregnant I was not.

My first sign is dislocations. EVERY. SINGLE. PREGNANCY. Then super greasy hair, cramps, acne, and fatigue with this one. Good luck!

What clued me in before my BFP was very sore boobs, a bit of nausea and a sudden super sense of smell. And Too Much Information but I also started farting for two basically from implantation until DD’s birth. I waited until my period was a day late to test. Fingers crossed for you! 🙂
