I had very bad back cramps at 3 weeks (before I even tested). They lasted 2-3 days then disappeared. I didn’t feel anything else til the 7-8 week mark, which is when the nausea and sore breasts set in.

My doctor said that it’s impossible to feel any pregnancy symptoms until 5-6 weeks but I’m certain the back pain was related.

I had a temperature dip at 8DPO and the same day felt a pinch and had very slight pink spotting when I wiped. I had the strangest dreams a few days before I got a BFP.

I had nothing – no early symptoms at all. After bfp my breast got sore and pretty large and I had very mild transient nausea for the first trimester and no other symptoms really. I’m 34 weeks tomorrow.

I’m 11w1d today and noticed the start of symptoms the week after getting the BFP.

But, I actually tested before I even missed AF, as my temps for the week after O continued to be VERY high… much higher than past months, so that got me wondering. AF was due on the Saturday/Sunday and I tested Thursday and got a clear positive. No bleeding or anything or anything else. I actually felt great, and not PMS-ey… which I guess was another sign.

But, a week after the BPF, as I said, was when I started more symptoms. Cramping was one of them, which was probably from implantation bleeding. I also started to feel nauseous off and on, like it would come and go. Nothing bad, but just felt sick for a bit. Boobs started to feel sore then too. So, mine were more afterwards than before.

gabbyheath12:  my boobs!!!! my boobs felt like they were on fire, and they felt like they were so heavy that they were going to explode. i started feeling this around 4 weeks.

Early pregnancy symptoms can be similar to PMS symptoms and i never had sore boobs when i got my period, so when that happened, i POAS and yup, i was pregnant.

I thought i was getting my period (cramps, sore boobs etc) but didn’t get it for a few days, so i did a test. I’d have been about 5 weeks by the time i tested.

They vary for everyone! I was exhausted really, really early. Like, falling nearly asleep while driving to work and passing out at 8:30pm, then my boobs got big/hard/and super sore. And frequent headaches. We weren’t preventing but weren’t charting or anything and it was my first full cycle without my IUD so I didn’t think too much of it until I had a few days of crampiness and still hadn’t started my period.

A week or so after my BFP the nausea kicked in hardcore. All day, sensitive to smells, etc. That’s all I have left now – I’m on a prescription because I missed a few days of work because the nausea was that bad. The meds take the edge off but my stomach is still super sensitive.

I never had any early (before BFP) symptoms with either one of my pregnancies. We weren’t actively TTC though, so perhaps I wasn’t paying as much attention to my body as someone who was TTC. It wasn’t until around 5-6 weeks that the morning sickness and exhaustion set in, and by then I already knew I was pregnant.

Every time I thought I had symptoms, I was not pregnant. When I did get a BFP, i didn’t feel pregnant, and I was only testing to make sure I could take medication on an upcoming trip. Looking back, I was so exhausted which was probably my only symptom out of the ordinary but  I had chalked it up to trying to finish up work and school stuff that had me crazy busy.

The only thing I had early was cramping, lots of watery cervical fluid (started after I would have gotten a BFP though), and I had implantation bleeding with one.  I did not feel pregnant at all with either baby, I was expecting my period due to the menstrual cramps.  I wasn’t symptom spotting though either.  MS and fatigue didn’t set in until 8weeks with my first and 6weeks with my second.  From what I’ve seen, most people don’t get real symptoms that stick around until 6weeks or later.  Symptom spotting is pointless, if you’re pregnant enough to have morning sickness and fatigue you are pregnant enough to get a BFP.

Sore boobs! But differently then PMS sore boobs. It was more in my nipples, while PMS is was on the sides of my boobs.

gabbyheath12:  I was really bloated, had backaches, mild cramping, peeing a lot, and I just had a feeling. The symptoms started at 10DPO, I got a faint BFP on 13DPO, and a stronger one the next day. So I started the early symptoms 1 wk before my missed period and got the positive 5 days before my missed period.

I had light cramping, implantation bleeding and constipation about 5 days before my missed period. I got a strong positive 3 days before AF was due. Everything else felt like normal pms – sore boobs, tiredness, etc. I actually thought AF was coming early but the cramps/bleeding were too light which was my first inkling that something different was going on with my body.
