My skin broke out, I got headaches every evening, and began feeling nauseous around 5 pm everyday. My smell was insanely heightened, and I was always exhausted.

It felt very much like a period except the cramps wouldn’t go away with ibuprofen, I did have some strong cravings but nothing that would make me suspect, and I was really tired.

3 words: Huge sore boobs.

That is all.

None, other than a missed period. No morning sickness, no acne. Later in the pregnancy I got tired and crampy.

I had a metallic taste in my mouth, my favorite wine tasted like butt, my vagay changed in texture and my skin became super sensitive and itchy.

@camrie: Same here. I got a comment from a girlfriend two days before my positive, “Wow, your boobs look really great today!” and they started being tender to the touch.

Also, nausea when I got really hungry. That was also pretty strange. You’re starving, but you feel sick, so you don’t want to eat. Which makes you feel worse. So you eat, and feel better. It’s odd.

@ginpin: I’d wait till next week. It’s possible to test too early when not enough of the preganancy hormone shows up to be registered on a pee test. I always suggest waiting to test because then the answer is more definite (as opposed to getting a “negative” but it’s because you’re testing too soon, then continuing to feeling crappy and having to test again).

I had cramping like I normally would with my period. But every woman will have different signs so test to be sure.

I had some cramping and a lil tiny bit of pink spotting.  I wasn’t trying so my assumptionw as that it was my period.  But when the spotting stopped and the cramps remained, something told me to test.  I really never thought anything of it though, I was just thinking it’d be to rule it out.  Oops!

@ginpin:JSYK, It might be harder for you to know since you’re on BC but for me, all of my period symptoms were right on schedule. I was craving, spotting, cramping…just like normal. The only thing that was different was my period never came.

Ditto @camrie–other than missing my period, the only other symptom was the incredibly sore knockers, lol. Actually, that’s a lie.. the night I found out, I realized that my skin had become really clear, and my hair was super shiny.

@brighteyedgirl:

um I might just have the mind of a 10 year old boy, but the term “knockers” makes me laugh hysterically.

I was exhausted (I thought it was a cold) and I woke up one morning and my boobs were killing me (that was the day I took a test)…and BFP!!!  🙂
