I’m only on CD18 and 5DPO but I’ve experienced spotting at 2 and 3 DPO (maybe implantation bleeding?) and since 2DPO I’ve had extremely sensitive nipples (sorry Too Much Information… I warned you!). I know it’s early so maybe I’m just thinking too much into it, but I’m wondering what early pregnancy symptoms some people experience first hand. What were some of your earliest pregnancy symptoms and when did you experience them? I know symptoms vary with each person, but I’m just wondering what everyone has experienced.

I had symptoms by 5dpo, but didn’t realize at the time that’s what they were. I felt like I was coming down with a cold and was really tired. I had some nausea a couple days letter and spent the day on the couch. I thought for sure I was sick and left work early the next day to go to a walk in clinic. They gave me a clean bill of health and I was about 5dpo at that time. The next week got worse and then my sense of smell kicked in and I knew something was up. My “normal” pms symptom were also absent as well.

My biggest earliest symptom – no symptoms! My actual symptoms started around 18-20DPO with sore breasts/nipples (OUCH!!) and queasiness. Nausea/vomiting started at 6 weeks gestation. Fatigue just hit me like a truck two weeks ago at 8 weeks.
I may have had some sensitivity to smells, but it was very short lived in the beginning. Now it’s in full swing!

I didn’t really have any symptoms till 10DPO (12 day LP). My boob tenderness didn’t disappear like it normally would and I started to get some crampy aches / pains.

It’s extremely early to having implantation bleeding at 2 and 3 dpo. Is there anyway your timing could be off?

I don’t want to burst your bubble, but I had all of these symptoms before my last period. I was convinced I was pregnant because of the timing, but I was just getting sick and started my period early. That could be another explanation

period cramps, for sure.
i felt like i was about to start my period for about four days. after it didn’t come, i knew something was up and took a test.
the fatigue, nipple soreness, and everything else did not come until after that.

I had diarrhea for about 4 days straight but I felt perfectly fine. I knew something had to be up because I was eating different foods everyday and I wasn’t sick! I eventually looked it up to see if it could be a symptom and sure enough it was and I tested a few days later!

I was constipated on 7-8 DPO (never happens) and had cramping from 9DPO on. Breast soreness and extreme hunger didn’t hit until until I was 5 weeks pregnant (21 DPO).

thanks everyone for all of your input and help!
@JaneyD: maybe my ovulation day is off? i’m just going by what fertility friend told me. It was based on my OPK but my temps didn’t match up so maybe I ovulated sooner?
@misskoala: I was thinking that but I don’t get breast tenderness, especially nipple tenderness and I’ve looked over my charts and I’ve never spotted this early so who knows! But thanks for your suggestion, I’m trying not to get my hopes up!

My earliest ones were bloating, fatigue, frequent urination, cramping and breast tenderness. Nausea and heightened sense of smell came not too long after.

Breast soreness for me was the big one. I spent the weekend before implantation (Monday) not wearing a bra. I went to an event with friends where my breasts hurt so bad that I can still remember that. I know that I implanted on a Monday because I had a tiny spot of blood seen during work. I didn’t test until Wednesday thinking it was a longshot, but sure enough, it was a faint line then. It only got darker on the weekend from there.

@sarahmc521: According to FF, of all charts that experience spotting soon after ovulation (2-4 DPO), 26% are pregnant, 57% are ovulatory, 4% end in miscarriage, and 10% are anovulatory. All you can really do at this point is wait. Don’t phantom symptoms SUCK?
Do you have a chart we can look at?

I had like one day around 8 or 9DPO where one nipple hurt. Around that time I was also getting super tired all the time, super bitchy, and my sense of smell heightened A LOT. The only one that was really unusual for me was the smell.
