- Wedding: December 2015 - Key Largo Lighthouse
About 2-3 weeks before finding out I was pregnant, I had pre-menstural cramps and was sure that meant I was about to get my period. I don’t track my period very well (nor am I intuned with my body) so I figured it would come whenever – I can go 6 weeks between periods.
Then, I started being REALLY REALLY tired. To the point where I could sleep like a baby for hours and had no energy. I didn’t know that was a symptom of pregnancy until later. I think it was around 4 weeks I was randomly reading a book and one of the character’s discovered she was pregnant. For some reason, I was hit with this strong intuition that I needed to take a pregnancy test.
I took a test and surprise – I was pregnant. I didn’t have any of the normal symtoms like sore/swollen breast, nausea…the only symptom I had prior to finding out I was pregnant was extreme tiredness.
So, it’s very possible to feel no change at all and be pregnant. I would watch out for feeling more tired then usual and aversion to smells that didn’t use to bother you if you aren’t feeling anything else.

I had symptoms immediately with my daughter I knew I was pregnant way before I took a test. With my son I had no clue. The only reason I found out was because I had a bad cold and went to the dr. They did a pregnancy test only because of my age. I was 9 weeks pregnant with my son when I found out.

I didn’t really have symptoms to speak of, maybe some slight breast tenderness. But that pregnancy didn’t last long, either, I lost it around 6 weeks. I also know there are some women who have healthy full-term pregnancies with no early symptoms. Your best bet is a BFP.

I was so sure my period was coming that I told DH the night before (our wedding was in a week, I was waiting for my period to show!) When it didn’t show up I tested again and that’s when I got the BFP. (I had expected my period on the Friday. It didn’t show, I tested, got a BFN so I had a roaring good time at my bachelorette that weekend. Sunday I was positive it would show Monday morning. It just felt like it. So Monday morning I tested, negative. Monday mid-day I tested again, because I was confused, that’s when I got the BFP.)
Morning sickness didn’t start for me until week 6 or 7. And it came on with a bang.

I’m sure I’m going to get my stupid AF either tomorrow or Tuesday because I feel like it. However, I have had horrible heartburn this weekend. I don’t want to fool myself or get myself excited over nothing but can this be a symptom early on? I don’t typically have HB at all.
