What were your earliest symptoms of pregnancy? How did you know you were pregnant?
I am not sure if I am…I am suspecting it, but aunt flow was due today, so I am just waiting a bit longer before I take a test. So far…my period has not showed up, I have not had any of my PMS symptoms (almost always the same), I am experiencing the worst back pain of my life, I have sort of a dull but sometimes sharp pain in the area of my lower right ovary (it comes/goes), and yesterday I had a “fever” of 99.3, so about half a degree higher than normal. I have also just been extremely fatigued, but I have been pretty busy, so who knows.
Looking forward to hearing everyone’s experiences! 🙂
EDIT: all of my “symptoms” began around 11 dpo.

With both pregnancies, I only took a test based on my period not showing up (a week late with one, a few days with my second). I did have symptoms of my period for both, but turns out just early pregnancy symptoms for me!
Do you have a test you could take? It would show up positive if you were pregnant and you truly are late or due for your period

I would take a test now. I found out I was pregnant very early, 9 dpo, so I didn’t have any symptoms!

My boobs felt weird – like tingly and sore. That was my first symptom — my first 2 tests were negative, but a third was positive. But I think I tested before my period was due.

I had implantation pain around 7dpo

Lower back pain was my earliest symptom.

My only indication was a super sense of smell. I got my BFP four days later, four days before I was due. I’d test now if I were you.

Mrs. Meowerson: Lol! I think I might get a test after work.

I had implantation bleeding and cramping with my first, but it was pretty much indistinguishable from my period so I only knew after the fact. With my second I had cramping but it just feels like menstrual cramps so I thought it was my period. I only suspected I was pregnant with #2 when my period didn’t show up the day it should have (I was charting) and instead I had tons of watery cervical fluid. Never had any pain except menstrual like cramping (very common in early pregnancy). No morning sickness or fatigue until 6 and 8 weeks.

chelseanhilliard: I took a test after my period was 5 days late. We weren’t trying persay, but we’rent trying too hard to prevent. I usually track my period because I get terrible cramps so I start on midol a few days prior to it starting, and usually a week before my boobs hurt for a few days and I get bloated, boobs stop hurting, and then a couple days later my period comes.
When my boobs didnt stop hurting, pain and sensitivity worsened actually, and I was feeling a little fatigued and ‘off’ I knew something was different.. when I tested that red line popped up so quick my head spun 🙂 You can get the Early pregnancy test which test up to 5 days before your MP.

LavenderMama89: I think I’ll get one after work. I just hate convincing myself in my head that it’s gonna be positive, then getting the negative lol. We aren’t trying either, but I stopped my birth control a few months ago & we have been using condoms since then.

chelseanhilliard: My first symptom was cramping/pulling sensation by my uterus. I kept thinking they were period cramps and I was carrying a tampon around for a WEEK! Lol- sounds so stupid now but that’s exactly what I was thinking!
As soon as I found out- about 13 DPO- the major exhaustion kicked in.

beebeeonboard: Yes, I am having a bit of cramping which I have assumed was from my period…but she hasn’t made her appearance. It’s a little more “pinchy” than my usual cramps. Today is 12/13 dpo… and so far at work I am non-stop hungry. I ate a whole big bowl of pasta (my favorite) and 10 minutes later I am still starving.
