At 11DPO I was a little nauseous. At 12 DPO I had to get up in the middle of the night to pee (and have been peeing frequently and have been nauseous since). I’m irritable. My nipples and boobs also hurt earlier than usual (more of a 13/14DPO hurt).

I knew at 1dpo and told my endocrinologist at 4dpo that I was sure I was in a pregnancy cycle.  I was.  Unfortunately none of mine stick, but the symptoms were uterine cramping/stretching and sore boobs from 1dpo on.

Somewhere around 7-10DPO (I forget, was before BFP) – implantation bleeding that was the faintest hint of pink spot imagineable

Around 14 DPO – slight brown spotting

5 weeks – mild stomachache, wasn’t sure if it was pregnancy-related, breasts got bigger

7 weeks – queasiness, had to start having crackers before getting out of bed in the morning

10 DPO- I woke up with a really bad headache

11 DPO- BFP 🙂

Since my BFP, the main symptom I’d say I have is a bloated tummy. It feels huge, but I don’t think it looks it. I haven’t had any of the sore boobs or moodiness, I’ve felt nausea at times, but I think that is due to cutting my caffeine. Every once in a while I get mild cramps and think AF might be starting, but the cramps go away- plus they are much more mild than my real cramps.

@birdie724:  I had some implantation bleeding, cramping, mild nausea and coffee started grossing me out…all around 2-3 weeks! Sure enough I took a test and got a BFP.

My first indication that I could be pregnant were my elevated temps since I charted using my FertilityFriend app 🙂

As for actual symptoms, I didn’t have any.  I had what I thought were normal PMS cramps and a teensy bit of normal PMS bloating. 

About 13(ish)DPO I went on a morning run (I was marathon training at the time, and we had already run 15 or 16 miles, so this was a 13 mile “easy/recovery” run) and I felt like I’d been run over by a train.  I came home, ate, showered, and slept for over 5 hours.  Even the next day I was just exhausted!  It was the next day at work that I realized I was technically late for my period, so I tested (would have been about 14DPO) and got a BFP 🙂

I didn’t have sore boobs, nausea, or anything at all other than fatigue until after 6 weeks, and most of that resolved by about 11 weeks.  I have had an incredibly easy pregnancy- no throwing up, no fainting, and in general I haven’t felt all that bad.  My ankles are swollen now, and I have more heartburn then I did but all in all, it’s been much easier than I expected.  I’m 32 weeks today- even went to a spin class last night!

1-7 dpo: Not a dang thing.  I had less pregnancy symptoms the month I got my BFP than any other month that I have ever thought that I was pregnant.  It felt EXACTLY like AF was coming, maybe even a little less PMS symptoms than I usually get. Cramps, breaking out, cranky, etc.  I never got sore boobs as PMS and I didn’t this month either. 

8, 9, and 10 dpo:  had some brown and red spotting/bleeding (which I usually got pre-AF) so then I thought AF was really REALLY on her way. 

8 dpo HUGE temp drop. Still thinking AF coming, not to mention shortest luteal phase ever, I was so angry! I also had heavy enough bleeding that I thought AF actually started on this day, but I guess it was closer to heavy spotting.  

9-11 dpo: temp went back up. I start thinking, wth? It always goes down and continues to go down as I am spotting and getting AF… 

11 dpo temp still up, teeny teeny bit of brown spotting in the morning, so decided to test. BFP. I was shocked because I didn’t have any tell-tale pregnancy symptoms.  Seriously, not even sore boobs.  Spotting stopped that morning and I haven’t (knock on wood) had any since.  

My sore boobs didn’t come on until I was closer to 5 weeks pregnant.  Now I am almost 8 weeks pregnant and thinking I need to go shopping for a new bra soon bc of how much they have exploded in the past 3 weeks.  

A little of bit of queasiness closer to week 5, but true “OMG I think I’m going to puke” and can’t eat anything but crackers didn’t start until 6 weeks on the dot.
