@anotherbee:  Firstly, congrats!  Second, try not to worry so much.  Everyone feels different symptoms at different times.  My boobs didn’t hurt until 6 weeks pregnant.  They didn’t get bigger until 7-8 weeks.  My nipples still aren’t bigger or darker (I’m 23 weeks now).  I never threw up once.  

For my symptoms, I starting feeling dizzy first.  Almost immediately, before I even got the BFP.  Shortly after the test, I just started feeling off.  Then nausea around 5-6 weeks, followed by what felt like period cramps.  Then boobs hurting 7-8 weeks.  

I really wouldn’t stress about it!  Be glad you aren’t sick from day 1!

Every pregnancy is different.I barely had any symptoms my entire pregnancy. No morning sickness, no nausea, no food aversions/cravings, etc. The only things I had were bigger boobs starting in 2nd trimester, and heartburn and tiredness in 3rd trimester. In my first trimester, the ONLY things I had to assure me I was pregnant was BFP and no “shark week”.

If you ovulated on Oct 1st…. you’re actually 5 weeks pregnant…. because if you get pregnant in a cycle you are considered 4 weeks pregnant the day you miss your period, rather than based on ovulation or conception.  Your doctor should go over all that on your 1st appointment.

I also felt almost no symptoms.  My boobs were a bit tender, but it seemed more “muscular” than when ladies talk about nipple pain…. Mine felt more like I had done a strong workout the day before, except it was EVERY day before!!!!

Other than that I had NO symptoms until about the 17th week, when I felt *movement*.

Don’t stress too much and enjoy that you aren’t vomiting and sore!!!!!

Congrats!! I am a little over 4 weeks along.  The only sign I have (aside from the 6 tests) is the mild cramping off and on and the bloating.  I’ve had that since before I got my BFP.  No sore boobs, nothing else.   I hope thats a sign of a great pregnancy!

Aside from fatigue, I didn’t have ANY symptoms until 6-7 weeks.  That’s when my boobs started hurting & I started to get a little queasy.  I never did throw up though.  Just be thankful that you’re not hugging the toilet all day!

Ooops, I meant to say congrats as well 🙂

i was a bit obsessive with testing. Got my first possitive with clearblue which said 1-2 weeks but continued to test every few days until it said 3+ weeks. I didnt have any symptoms until i was about 6 weeks (from LMP) and tht was only minor nausea. Never had sore boobs, nipples havent changed either. only had a slight grumbling stomach sensation early on when AF was due with light cramps which lasted a few weeks.

Dont worry, everyone is different. my morning sickess didnt start until about 8 weeks

I had no symptoms for at least a week or two after my BFP. I didn’t feel pregnant at all, some days I still don’t and I’m 10 weeks now. Everyone experiences symptoms differently and at different times. I wouldn’t worry.
