I didn’t know I was pregnant at the time but looking back, my first symptom was extreme fatigue and headaches.  I seriously felt hungover all the time.

My first real symptom was a seriously heightened sense of smell. I was chopping up turkey to make a sandwich for Darling Husband, and had to run to dry-heave over the toilet twice. I had a feeling I might be, then. Immediately following that I found myself napping during the day because I was so exhausted like all the time. 

ETA: This was probably at 9 or 10DPO. I didn’t test until 13DPO, so I didn’t know yet.

Kind of Too Much Information, but it felt like someone shoved thumb tacks into my nipples and then set them on fire. I’m not kidding. This went on for three days. I found out I was pregnant a month later.

The first symptom of my First Pregnancy was severe period type pain, but no period.  And I never used to suffer period pain. (After 2 pregancies though, now I do)

And the first sympton of my second pregnancy was again abdomen pain.  The best I can describe it was that it felt like it was deep in the core of my body and it lasted for about 2 -3 minutes and was agonsingly painful.  And it only occured after sex. (TMI there, sorry)

extremely sore boobs, tired and my period was only 3 days late… But I certainly had a FEELING that something was up. And when I found out, the next day I was nauseous!

I didn’t know I was pregnant at the time, but looking back it was definitely exhaustion and an nausea. I went to a clinic about a week after I conceived because I was sure that I was coming down with a cold because no matter how much I rested I couldn’t feel better and the post nasal drip was giving me an upset tummy. Not so obviously. The next symptom was the sense of smell. It’s uncanny. When this showed up I tested, and I was about 13dpo so my symptoms definitely came early.

Early cramping (9-10 DPO) – then pretty crazy hunger following my missed period (14DPO) that continued through 11 weeks.  Sore breasts started at about 5 weeks pregnant.

It sounds strange but I could tell something wasn’t right in my abdomen. It felt tight or firmer than usual which didn’t make any sense. I finally got the nerve to test and got a positive. Sore breasts and nauseous feeling came around 5 weeks. Also had a very light cramping/aching feeling

I started having breast pain that was not normal about a week before my missed period. It prompted me to test 5 days early, and I got a BFP.

For me, my boobs were spilling out of my bra. I actually thought I was going to go on a diet because I had gained weight and thought it was only showing in my chest. The night before I took a test, I was super tired–ate my entire dinner, like so hungry, then promptly went to the couch at 7:30 and fell asleep for the entire night. The next morning, I thought I should take a test since I received my 14th day of high on my CBEFM. It was positive before 30 seconds had passed. I wasn’t expecting it because I thought I had gotten my period that month….I either did or it was implantation bleeding. I go to the doctor on Friday to get our ultrasound–I’m about 8 weeks.

I had these weird pinching/pulling cramps which I had never experienced before and I was incredibly thirsty and bloated.
