I was bloated and started having cramps about a week before my period was due, which is unusual for me.

Fatigue and bloating for me.

Headache and cramping for me right before my missed period. Those are typically signs of AF so I thought I was about to start… Right after my BFP I developed extremely sore breasts and the cramping continued. I agree with the fatigue also–but I’m pretty much always tired so I didn’t really notice a difference, haha.

The only symptom I had before I got my BFP (at 10DPO) was implantation cramps at 6DPO.  However, I had never had them before so I wasn’t convinced that was what they were, but I was hopeful!  Shortly after my BFP on 10DPO, I got light cramps until 14DPO so those were before my missed period as well.  I only get cramps an hour or two before AF arrives normally so that would have been a tip off as well perhaps had I not been testing so early. It took me until 5.5 weeks before I got sore boobs and fatigue though.

Twice as hungry as usual experienced about 5 days before my missed period. I had the tender breasts, mood swings and bloating but all seemed normal for usual PMS symptoms.

My breasts started hurting so bad about a week before my period was do. It was the reason I took my test so early.

My first indication was that my temps were elevated (yay charting!)… other than that, I had typical PMS cramping, typical PMS bloating, and was so certain my period was coming that I went out and bought a box of tampons & a bottle of wine instead of pregnancy tests :/  I tested the day my period was due with FRER and got a BFP!

I swear I felt implantation.  At about 6DPO, I had these quick, sharp cramps in my abdomen that lasted about 1 second each, for a total of about 10 seconds.  I have never felt anything like that before.  Immediatly, I thought “What was THAT”.  After that, I felt really sure that I was going to get a BFP, which I did at 11 DPO.  Also beginning at 6DPO, I felt PMS-like cramping and sore boobs, both of which are typical PMS symptoms for me.  I’m 16DPO now, and have some mild cramping and sore boobs.

1. Cramping. I had AF like cramps for a whole week before my expected date, where as usually I get them only the day before/day of.

2. Fatigue, fell asleep randomly a few times on the couch and I’m not a napper AT ALL.

3. Random heartburn, from bland things like bread and water. Supposedly this symptom isn’t suppose to come until later but it wasn’t the case with me. By this point I was very suspicious that I was pregnant.

I had very, very mild cramps, and my hips and upper back were sore.  Mainly, though, it was the lack of normal PMS symptoms that tipped me off that something different might be going on.  I tested a day or two before I expected my period and it was positive.

Exhaustion, swollen, aching boobs all over, and an extreme pain (like a burning) in my nipples whenever they got cold that would last for hours long after I had warmed up– a lot more so in my left one, bijou214!!, aversion to certain foods I normally love.

Then shortly after came the nausea and extreme sensitivity to smell.

Cramping from implantation! I had pretty constant low-level cramps from implantation til missed period… they’re basically gone now and I’ve moved onto being a balloon and low level nausea!

Nausea, first thing in the morning on 9 DPO, one day before my BFP 🙂
