For those trying or not to conceive and think might be pregnant, I thought that if we started a blog sharing our symptoms (of possible pregnancy) might help us decipher. I know symptoms vary from woman to woman and pregnancy to pregnancy, but there just might be some things in common worth exploring together. It is so hard to tell exactly without testing and waiting to miss your period, but if you are like me, and you want to find out sooner, then maybe we can help each other. At least that’s my hope. Let’s do it like this:
How long have you been TTC?: We were not TTC at the moment, but we said if it happens it happens and we will be happy
Last day you had unprotected intercourse: DC12
Ovulation day estimated: DC15
What day of you cycle are you in?: DC18
List your symptoms:
– Painful cramps
– Hot flashes
– Some burning sensation (which might be related to vaginal infection)
– Lack of energy
– Increased Egg-white discharge after ovulation has passed
– Not very hungry
– Feeling weird overall, like not really myself
Anything you are avoiding?: coffee, seafood, anything that has large amounts of caffeine
Are you taking pre-natal vitamins?: Yes, I was taking them even before a possible conception.
Thanks for sharing.

Early symptoms I had we’re headaches, extreme fatigue, I wouldn’t call it cramping but more of like a pang in my side off and on. I didn’t really get the morning sickness & sore boobs until I was aboutn6 weeks..morning sickness stopped around 13 weeks, but I’m now almost 16 weeks & absolutely cannot wait to rip my bra off when I get home

I’m not pregnant right now and I don’t want to be. Though I thought it would be nice to tell other Bee’s about my experience. I got pregnant on christmas years ago, and felt the cramps a few days after – which was unusual for me. It was unplanned completely.
Found out at 6 weeks along – via missed period.
– Painful cramps
– Lack of energy
-My eyes felt tired
-Morning sickness, I would puke one time and that’s it
-At first I had headaches, felt sick all day, then it went away.
-Implantation bleeding (pink in color)
-Hormones were wayyy off.
-I was having salt/sugar cravings and I kept craving the baked vinegar and salt chips. I also craved tuna melts lol!
-Shortness of breath

My nipples felt like they were on fire. (TMI?), lots of CM, and queasy. This started about 10 DPO. I got a BFP at 12 DPO.

I am just barely pregnant, 4 weeks and 6 days. So far the only real symptoms I have is that I have begun to burp non-stop. I mean non-stop. Non. Stop. burping. My Fiance thinks it’s funny.
I also feel *full* and bloated.

Oh yeah! Your boobs feel like needles when something touches them – even your bra!

I had lots of cramping, usually I get cramping the day before AF and that’s it. I had cramping for the whole week before I found out. I also had some heartburn and very fatigued.

I am nearly 7 weeks pregnant. I ‘knew’ long before I was able to test positive simply because I was really in tune with my body and quite honestly it was going crazy on me lol.
Here are my symptoms as I had them from the week after conception (the week I had my period- oddly)
-Fatigue. Never been so out of breath- easily tired in my life and I was in great shape before I got my BFP. Even a 10 minute walk would wind me.
-Fullness-bloating- it didn’t go away after my last period.
-constant cramping- not severe, but constant. It didn’t make sense as I just finished my period and had cramping up til my BFP- no aunt flo, just cramps.
-sore breasts- heavy breasts- finally change in areola darkness and nipple size- they were constantly erect and still are!
-Nausea- for me MS started before the typical 6-8 weeks. Right before I got my BFP I was sick to my stomach nearly every day, something that’s only gotten worse since (now being medicated for it)
-more CM than usual
-higher than usual temps. I felt like I was having a hot flash all the time- my temperature is still around 99 consistently.
-cravings started before my MS hit full force. I usually stick away from simple carbs but I craved them- possibly due to my body needing more fuel for the baby.
All in all, I can say it wasn’t a surprise when I tested positive. I think my husband knew before I did. The moment I craved a cheeseburger (which I don’t normally like at all) he knew I was pregnant lol. Best of luck and don’t overthink it. There are plenty of BFP women who feel absolutely nothing. Although symptoms can sometimes be telling. 🙂

@3xaCharm: lol wait til it turns to non-stop farting. 😛 For me that happened, too! Oh the joy.

@3xaCharm: OMG you burp too? It has been NON STOP for me and I am now 7/8 weeks. Apparently my aunt had it with all her pregnancies ALL THE WAY THROUGH. To say I am petrified of going out is the understatement of the century.

the only symptom i had other than missed period was a constant gurgling in my stomach. no cramps, never had sore boobs, no sickness until 6 weeks, no increase in CM. in fact i had more symptoms in previous months mwhen i was symptom watching

@Sea_bass: I’m 21 weeks and still burping like crazy. I also have bad acid reflux in the 2nd trimester and I think it is related.

I’m so glad to hear that the burbing thing is normal!! I also am burbing allllll the time!! We were NTTC. The first thing that let me know something was up was my sore boobies. I mean really sore!! Then AF never came so I took a test and got my BFP. We were shocked! Especially since I was not ovulating when we had sex and he was wearing a condom! So I’m 5 weeks and the other symptoms I’m having is that food does not seem appealing to me like it use to and I’m pretty emotional. Is the emotional thing normal this early on??

I only had one early symptom and it was a massive increase in EWCM after ovulation.
