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.

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.

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.

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.
