    Sore nipples quickly followed my bfp. That was the only distinct symptom until the fatigue and frequent urination set in a week or two later.

    I was tempted to say an implantation dip because I did have a dip around the right time for it, but I since that’s an unreliable sign, I chose a positive test. I really had no symptoms for a long time. No nausea, sore boobs, etc. I didn’t have darkening nipples till probably 5 months in.

    I was doing an egg donor ivf cycle, so I was on estrogen and progestrone (PIO) intramuscular shots. I was getting way more sysmptoms from them than I did with suppositories. So even before the transfer I was getting sore/heavy boobs, food cravings and headaches. Then I had the transfer–next day cramps. Everything else was the same, but now cramps. I cramped from 1dp+5dt until I got my unofficial BFP on 7dp+5dt (12dpo) and kept cramping for the next week or two.

    Sore boobs and backache with my older two. With my youngest, it was hunger. I had NO idea I was pregnant and didn’t even suspect it. One day I invited my neighbor/friend over for dinner, and I literally had 3 BBQ sandwiches plus some other stuff. I just ate the whole time she was over and kept saying how I just wasn’t getting full, and she made a joke that I needed to take a pregnancy test. I thought she was crazy, and I took a test, and it was negative, but a few days later with no period it was positive. I was in total shock. 

    This is so gross, but I had been holding my pee all day to take the second test, and I had to go SO bad. I pulled down my pants in the back of my van and peed in a cup. It was that or pee on myself. 

    Before I could even get my pants buttoned, I saw that it was positive. I cried the entire way home. I did not want to be pregnant. It was literally one time! And I was exclusively breastfeeding. And he pulled out! My aunt had just died, and we only had sex once the entire month. And I was asleep………..he basically just had his way with me. Lol.

    I was so exhausted from about 10dpo. I could barely walk up the stairs at work without my legs burning and getting out of breath. But I didn’t think I was pregnant, I just thought I’d been working too hard. The day before AF was due I had a really sharp pain in my tummy and odd aches (like AF was coming) and a bit of an upset tummy. Again I didn’t put these down to being pregnant. The first time I thought I might be pregnant was when I saw a positive test! It was one of the only months I hadn’t tested until my period was late. I’m glad I waited, my BFP was super clear!

    My option wasn’t there: gas. 

    I was gassy just a few days po. Next was the test at 11dpo, then cramps started a day after my positive test.

    We went to Cedar Point, and I was so made that the roller coasters were making me sick and the first day made me so tired after just a few hours! I had no clue I was pregnant. When I got home, I realized I hadn’t had a period in a while, and yup! The test was pos. And holy cow that was 8 years ago now.

    Strangely, dry and cracked lips was the biggest and craziest sign for me.  I am a religious user of lip balm so it’s been years since ive experienced that.  Amidst sharp non af like cramping I knew i had to test due to my lips!

    I was having pretty tender breasts for several days but assumed it was just due to ovulation and then pending AF. But when I had some spotting 3 days before my period (when I never spot), I just knew, and hoped, that I was pregnant. Took a test as soon as I got home and had my wonderful BFP!

    Acid reflux was my first symptom around 10 DPO!  Lots of burping – Really random.  And I usually spot prior to AF, which I always hoped was implantation bleeding, but had no spotting before my BFP!

    I started to feel a heavy feeling in my uterus (like AF cramps, but not cramping, just more pressure / fullness) and nausea around 15 or 16 dpo, followed by tender breasts.

    I supposed it was implantation bleeding but I thought it was my period so I didn’t think I was pregnant.

    You’re missing one: getting sick. I came down with a horrible flu (confirmed not to be the ACTUAL flu by dr’s) 2 days before my missed period.

    Congestion, sore throat, fever, etc…
