I know its totally different for all but I’m just interested in everyone’s stories.
With my first pregnancy I had horrible nausea, some pretty serious mood disorders/depression, an incredibly heightened sense of smell, shortness of breath and definite increased urination. However, I was really sick with a REALLY bad cold/flu for much of the first tri so I can’t really pinpoint when things started.
All of my friends have had (or are having) pregnancies with little to no symptoms….they are all those annoyingly happy, healthy and unremarkable pregnant ladies 🙂
When did you start feeling any pregnancy symptoms?

sometimes not having symptoms is scary too. So it’s not all ‘annoyingly happy’. My only symptoms have been super tired (but that has eased off the last couple of weeks) and larger tender breasts. i am now starting to get really bloated so it’s nice to have something making me feel pregnant.
I did habe one super emotional week which I now can pinpoint to being about 5 weeks pregnant, however at the time I didn’t know and thought it was PMS On steroids.

i started feeling symptoms early, around 3 weeks, i had cravings. At 3 weeks i didnt know i was pregnant yet, i thought i was just really hungry lol. By 4 weeks my boobs felt realllly sore, thats when i knew i was pregnant bc i never got sore boobs when i was getting my period. My 5 or 6 weeks i started getting terrible morning sickness.

My first symptom was light cramping that started at 8dpo. By week 4, before I even tested positive, I had a couple bouts of nausea and dizziness. It became daily at week 5! Then came acne and really sore boobs. So much fun! 🙂

I had no symptoms until after my bfp at 6dp5dt (11dpo). I started having mild cramping around 15 dpo and then was sad to have no other symptoms! But at about 5.5 weeks I started getting terrible food aversions, followed by nausea and fatigue. I have trouble eating anything, so I’m kicking myself for complaining about no symptoms!

8weeks for symptoms that stuck around. I had one or two days where I felt nauseous or tired but it was just one day and then it was gone.

I felt nothing until about 8 weeks when all day nausea kicked in for about two weeks. There was another short stint of fatigue shortly after that but that is about it! No sore breasts, no food aversions, no middle of the night peeing. I think I have had it pretty easy!

4-5 weeks bad bloating and hunger. 6 weeks more hunger. 8 weeks sciatic pain, nausea and extreme exhaustion started. Felt a lot less nausea by 14 weeks. 16 weeks peeing a lot started. 18 weeks headaches. I had random nausea again in the beginning of the 3rd tri and I was hot ALL the time and feet/ankle swelling (I was also due in July ugh).

I felt nothing until about 8 weeks. I didn’t do any tracking of my cycle, so I didn’t take a test until my period was a week late- about 6 weeks along. I had two blissful weeks of no symptoms and then nausea, sore boobs and incredible hunger with peeing every hour started.

Yeah I’d be a little more cautious about describing women with little or no symptoms as “annoying” or “unremarkable.” I know you meant it to be funny, so no offense taken personally, but I was one of those women who did not experience the kind of intense pregnancy symptoms that folks like you prepped me to expect. Speaking as someone who already suffers from anxiety in the best of times, it’s safe to say that my “easy” first trimester was fraught with a lot of pain and stress. You never know what is going on with someone else’s life. Stronger symptoms don’t make you any more pregnant, just like light/no symptoms don’t make your friend’s pregnancy any less remarkable. Again, not trying to pick a fight, just some food for thought.
To answer your question, I had a few food aversions right away and some mild occasional nausea starting around 6 weeks and lasting through about 10 weeks, but I never actually vomited. Definite first trimester bloating. Also, I had a lot of fatigue that started at 7 weeks and lifted around 11 weeks. All of that sounds very distinctly “pregnancy symptom” in hindsight, but believe me, at the time I was very freaked out that what little discomfort I was feeling could just as easily have been a chronic bug during cold/flu season.

5 or 6 weeks – almost unbearable morning sickness…that’s when I knew.
