@aussiebee:  I started feeling a little funny about 7 days after conception and tested positive at 10. However, full-fledged symptoms (nausea etc) didn’t start until closer to 6 weeks.  Well, I guess I was waking up to pee and had sore boobs from about the time I got a postive test. But no nausea/exhaustion until later.

I am currently 6.5 weeks and if I hadn’t taken a test at 11 DPO (and have now missed my period) I still don’t think I would know. I’ve had almost no symptoms.

@aussiebee:  Thank you for posting this!  I am wondering the same thing.  This is the first month we are TTC and I swear I have symptoms but I am wondering if it is just my mind playing tricks on me.

In both of my pregnancies, I developed a hyper-sensitive sense of smell about a week after conception.  I didn’t think a thing of it the first time around, but it’s how I knew I was pregnant this time around (even before I tested).  Then about three days before I was scheduled to get my period in both pregnancies, I started feeling a little queasy — nothing major at all, more like a “maybe I will just eat some plain noodles for dinner” kind of queasy.

These are such minor symptoms, and they’re so easy to miss.  The really noticeable stuff doesn’t kick in until around 6 weeks.

@Boots McGee:  agreed.  Very minor in the beginning.  If I wasn’t ttc, and paying hyper-close attention, I wouldn’t have noticed a thing.  I was hungry, crampy, BBs hurt, and just felt “off”.  cramps were before my period and that doesn’t usually happen to me.  I was kind of PMSy as far as emotions.  By about 5 weeks I was starting to get really tired and still with the hunger. Should have eaten til I exploded since by 6 weeks I couldn’t eat a thing. 🙁

I knew right away but i wasn’t ‘sure’ until I got my positive. My boobs felt heavy and the veins looked extremely blue. Also my sense of smell was heightened. I just felt off.

@aussiebee:  I only knew because I tested, my AF was 9 days late but I was experiencing (and still do) pms pains. But it wasn’t until I got super tired at around 6 weeks that I started with any symptoms.

I felt it literally 1-2 days after conception.  I started feeling really “off”.  I was having really slight nausea and dizziness and just felt something I’ve never felt before.

I’m one of those freak women who knew right away… like the next morning. I just had this thought of “I’m pregnant” that I couldn’t get rid of. The first time I tested, it was only 8DPO and too early to tell. I tested again at 10DPO and got my BFP. I hadn’t even missed my period yet.

@aussiebee:  Hi, I felt weird just before my period was due!!!! Plus I got sore boobs, I took the test and it was positive, I went for an emergency scan and there it was a sac and a yolk!!! Turned out I was like 3 weeks, but I knew when I was 2 weeks.

And now my lil bundle of joy is sat here screaming the house down whilst I try and reply lol….

honestly after 3 months of trying I was convinced I wasn’t pregnant. The night before I took the test I had some lower back pain and nusea. I also had implementation bleeding the week before but I tried not to put to much focus on it because I had gotten my hopes up so many times before.
