@cmbr:  i was spotting regularly. it wasnt a heavy period but ive spotted in the past during some cycles instead of a heavy flow and it didnt mean anything either. 

i found out that the beginning stages were most likely implantation spotting and as far as the other one i have no idea why it happened.

Sore boobies was my only major tip off.

Sadly it wasn’t a sticky bean but ill share my symptoms cuz they were a bit unusual! My CP was really high, i had tons of lotiony CM and my lady bits felt really swollen.  Starting from about 7 or 8 dpo got a bfp a couple days later. Good luck!

Cramps! Thought I was getting my period. And grossed out by coffee. All before missed period.

Headache & “burning boobs”…  Most of the symptoms of early pregnancy are also pms symptoms too though

I was light headed, like if I bent down to pick something up I’d be super dizzy & light headed & exhaustion. I didn’t notice the light headed thing the first time I got pregnant. Fi noticed I was “sleeping like a pregnant girl”lol. When I got pregnant the 2nd time was super light headed and remembered feeling it the 1st time around. Both were before I missed a period.

@roweboat:  if you look in my recent posting history, you can see the variety of symptoms I had a week before my period… Very sore boobs (like I’ve never had in my life!), light cramping, nausea, etc… And I was not pregnant. Once I took a test, my “symptoms” started to go away… You should do the same thing, and try to relax!!

1. Fatigue, but I initially attributed that to some pain medication I was taking after having a cyst removed from my lower back 11 days before my BFP. (The meds had a “may cause drowsiness” disclaimer.)

2. Swollen boobs (though I think Fiance noticed that before I did)

3. Missed period

Extreme fatigue.  I woke up one morning and felt like I’d been run over by a truck, I could barely get out of bed, barely get my eyes to focus and walk in a straight line.  I felt like I was hungover, but I hadn’t been drinking.  It was 5 days before my missed period, the funny thing was that I had tested negative the day before this happened.  I tested again a week later and got a positive.

overall, less ‘symptoms’ than any of my other TWWs. I’d had EVERYTHING on any website or book as PMS symptoms.

But because I’d had a chemical pregnancy a few months before I recognised a weird shooting pain in my nipples at 9dpo that I’d only had that once before. And, in retrospect, I realised that I got an aversion to chocolate at about 8dpo I’ve still got at 12 weeks, but I’d never have noticed that otherwise (even though I’m a huge chocoholic).

Nausea, exhaustion and more frequent urination came after the missed period and didn’t really kick in until week 6.
