(Closed) Is it possible to have no symptoms at all early on?

I would suggest you avoid symptom spotting because “symptoms” such as nausea or tender breasts or cramps are just as likely pre-AF symtpoms as they are early pregnancy symptoms.  So it doesn’t tell you anything.  And plenty of people have zero symptoms the whole first trimester.  And other people swear they have all of these pregnancy symptoms before their period is due but aren’t pregnant. 

I had virtually no symptoms until after 8 weeks.  Except for two days.  Two days I felt a little nauseated and one of those days I was extra tired.  Might have been around week 6.  That was it until after 8 weeks.  Unless you count cramps and implantation bleeding as a symptom, which I did have around implantation.  No way to differentiate those cramps from menstrual cramps though.

I think most people don’t have symptoms that early. I don’t think I even got sore boobs or fatigue until five weeks, and no nausea til six. If you’re seven days post ovulation, a fertilized egg would be implanting sometime between today and three days from now, so it’s not surprising that you don’t have any symptoms – even if you do conceive this month, it’s happening like, right now.

I never had any symptoms at all until at least 5/6 weeks.  But each month during TTC that I had “symptoms”, they were always PMS!

I definitely thought AF was on the way before I got my BFP. I do think I had implantation cramping for a day or two because it felt like AF was right around the corner about a week and a half before my period was due (I thought it was going to come freakishly early – even told DH that AF was coming, and then the cramps went away! I brushed it off.). Then I just felt ‘off’ for a few days like a week later so I took a test 2 days before my missed period and it was a BFP. HUGE surprise bc we were not actively TTC, but had planned on starting in a few months. I will say I’m super in-tune with my body and I have no idea why/how I felt ‘off’, just felt a little different so on a whim and after a random joke from DH, I took a test. The difference in my body was so slight though that I doubt it’d be noticeable normally. Otherwise, exhaustion and slight nausea but only after 4-5 weeks. My boobs were (and still are, at 6w6d) suuuuper sensitive/sore, mainly nipples. Most people say they had no idea they were preggo because they didn’t feel any different!

Prettysmile40:  My only symptom was a BFP! 🙂 I had more “symptoms” the months I wasn’t pregnant than the one I actually was.

Yeah, I had absolutely no reason to believe I was pregnant other than being a day late. I had months where I was so sure, but the one I actually was: nada.

Prettysmile40:  Two nights in a row before getting my BFP I woke up in the middle of the night and grabbed my menstrual cup on my way to the bathroom- it felt exactly like my period was coming. I did have bad bloat and a little more fatigue and hunger than normal but that wasn’t until right before my missed period (and those aren’t that reliable of symptoms, anyway, since I’ve been tired and hungry lots of time before and obviously not been pregnant!) Best of luck to you! I hope this is your month!

Prettysmile40:  My first symptom when I was pregnant was my BFP.  And I was going through infertility treatments, so I was hyperanalyzing absolutely everything! 

I actually didn’t even think I WAS pregnant, I only took a test because DH had asked me to. (I had gotten a BFN 2 days prior and was feeling pretty discouraged) 

EDIT: Just saw your follow-up.  I’d recommend testing on 9/2 and even days after that until you get a BFP or AF.  Also, my symptoms didn’t start until 5/6 weeks either.

Prettysmile40:  My first symptom was a growing belly at about 14 weeks followed by movement and a short fuse shortly after.  Never had a single day of even slight nausea.  I also didn’t get a positive pregnancy test until the day after my period was due so make sure you don’t test too soon and then go out and have a few drinks like I did! Good luck!!
