I don’t remember exacly when, but for me it was a little bit after my missed period. I remember being upset that I didn’t have any symptoms and I just didn’t feel pregnant, so the positive test was a big surprise for me.

The night before I tested, I felt nauseated after dinner. I didn’t overeat too much, and it was a little weird. I knew I was late, but since we weren’t off the pill for long, I figured it was just my body adjusting, since I was 1 day late the month before. Turns out, I was wrong – I was preggers. After that, I definitely felt nausea, but my breasts didn’t grow or get sore until probably week 7. (I found out at 4 weeks).

My only symptom prior to my missed period was needing to pee much more frequently, which was only noticeable because I normally have enormous bladder capacity (TMI – sorry!). Morning sickness, heartburn, etc didn’t really start for me until I was 6 or 7 weeks along.

Oh, and as for heartburn, you really don’t feel that until much later. The main reason for that is because the baby is taking up more room and your stomach is smaller, thus pushing the food up.

Good luck!

About 5 days before my missed period. My boobs hurt like they have never hurt before!

I threw up three times on the day my period was due and took a test the next morning.  A lot of women don’t get morning sickness until a few weeks later, but I got it right away and still have it at 24 weeks.  Other symptoms kicked in pretty quickly after that.

I “just knew” pretty much right after conception, but I got my first real symptoms about 2 weeks later.  A week before I tested (I didn’t test until about 6 weeks), I felt exhaustion and my first introduction into morning sickness.  I didn’t get any other symptoms (sore boobs, etc…) until later.

I got my first symptom about a week before my missed period–extreme breast tenderness. Usually my breasts are sore before I get my period, but this was it x10. I should have known, but I didn’t test until the day after my period was due.

I’m not sure when my period was suppose to come, I have a wonky cycle and always have.  I think my symptoms started at 3-4 weeks, I scheduled immediately after the positive test(s) and had to wait 2 weeks I believe.  My boobs were incredibly sore, I was slightly nauseated and I couldn’t stand the taste of my coffee, those together made me test.

My boobs got huge, I could not eat enough pretzels, and I just felt super bloated, but with a ball in my stomah (sounds werid, but it felt weird to do a sit up when I was like 2 weeks pregnant). I also just knew, though – like right away, I just had a feeling! But the biggest thing was my sudden pretzel eating.

i was extremely exhausted for about 4 days before my missed period – i slept 12 hours a night and it made no difference. plus my boobs were sore. i had a feeling i was pregnant and got a bfp the day before my missed period.

…that being said, there were at least two other months in the 7 months of us TTC when i just KNEW i was pregnant cause of all the symptoms. each time it was just pms. so of course it can be tricky….i say if you’re curious, buy a multi-pack hpt and test sooner than later – you can always retest.

I’m currently towards the end of our TWW and I feel absolutely exhausted mostly in the afternoons. Been having some cramping a few days ago but nothing major. I definitely have an increased appetite as well as some occasional nausea but nothing too intense. I took a test this morning hoping and praying for a BFP but nothing yet. AF isn’t do for another day or 2 so will test again towards the end of this week. On that note, I’m off to take a nap 🙂 G’luck!

At about 7 or 8 weeks. When I tested, I just tested b/c my period was late and I always had a 12day lutenal phase. Before I tested, I could smell a LOT, which was weird, but I didn’t think anything of it.

Both my mother and my sister swear that they were nauseous the day after they got pregnant with all their kids and saw hardly a sick free day for 9 months. Not something I’m hoping to imitate.
