I always thought when I get pregnant I want to create a post about the first sign (s) you knew you were pregnant to better help women who are TTC and might wonder if they are having a sign of pregnancy. Now that I’m 12 weeks and had a couple signs I thought it would be time you make this post to help others. Please help us out by answering the poll please for any ladies who have ever been pregnant.

Sorry if I don’t have an option for you, it would only let me list this many. And I couldn’t get the option to pick more than 1 choice. Apologies in advance. Feel free to write if you had a symptom not listed or multiple symptoms.

Honestly I just had a “feeling,” and decided to take a test and it turned out to be positive. But if I remember correctly, my first real “symptom” was sore breasts, followed by the whole shebang a week or so later (nausea, exhaustion, minor cramping, mood swings, you name it and I dealt with it, lol)

I started cramping way before I did when I was getting my period,followed by sore boobs

I voted implantation bleeding. I didn’t suspect it at all but on the day my period was due I had 2 drops of blood on my underwear. I thought it was my period but there was no more blood after that. I was so excited but nervous that it wasn’t real so I wait an entire week before I tested and got a BFP lol

I had a big blob of EWCM a few days before getting a BFP. I didn’t really get any symptoms until a bit further along, which was sore boobs and some nausea.

Dizzy spells, tiredness and cramping on right side.

I had a dizzy drunk feeling (though I hadn’t had anything to drink!) after eating lunch, and a strange tugging sensation on my left side (the side that I ovulated on). It was the strangest thing I’d ever felt.

I chose “sore breasts” but initially it was actually more like my boobs just felt reeeally heavy. I also noticed a more sensitive sense of smell. A lot of other symptoms came later, but those were my first ones.

I knew from implantation cramping. I was in the middle of making a cake stand it it just hit me. I felt like AF was coming even though I knew it was nowhere near due and it was centralized in a slightly different spot than my normal cramps, and I never expierence cramping in between. We also were not trying, so I wasn’t looking for any symptoms or expecting it. I just “knew” right then and there. I put it in the back of my mind trying to tell myself I was just overthinking it, but I still had that feeling. Before AF was late I tested twice and BFP both times. The first actual things I noticed changed though slightly before I tested was I was unbelievably thirsty and just like with my previous two pregnancies I started getting the most gruesome nightmares out of no where. Then the typical symtoms started coming not long after.

I had increased discharge down there. Someone on these boards described it before as “the drip”. I kept checking to make sure I did not get my period or pee my pants a little, lol.

sore boobs and i was also extremely tired. like, i could barely keep my eyes open.
but that’s not what made me think i was pregnant. i didn’t suspect it until my “period” (which was actually bleeding due to a subchorionic hemorrhage) came 5 days late, lasted less than a day, and my temperature hadn’t dropped at all.
