Hiya I'm hoping to be pregnant - testing on wednesday.
Until then I'm symptom spotting grin
Apart from Late AF, sore boobs, sickness and exhaustion did you have any other pregnancy signs?

My DS is 13 months and I didn't really have any signs with him till I was about 7 weeks.

Cried over something stupid on the radio about a week after conception. I just knew!!

Fingers crossed!

MrsVDB Mon 03-Jun-13 19:17:07

Thrush, constipation and really thirsty! Good luck

Sore breasts. Cramps as though AF was about to appear but then it just didn't.

2 weeks after conception there were 2 days when I constantly needed to wee. I must have wee'ed 2-3 times every hour it was really bizarre. It was only at 6 weeks when I realised I was pregnant and googled early pregnancy signs that I found out it was a very early stage pregnancy symptom.

Felt like I had a urine infection just days after conception , later read this can be due to implantation. I also had sore back and swollen tummy (presumably as your digestion slows due to hormones). All this swiftly followed by chin spots and a mouth ulcer. I knew I was pregnancy waaaay before a test could have told me.

In my first pregnancy my very first symptom was itchy boobs, followed by slight nausea...this was before I done a pg test, urine infection followed for whole first trimester.

This pregnancy, spots on my face (I never get spots) around about implantation time, one day of being sick, then at about 6 weeks, a urine infection followed by around 2 weeks of nausea when I couldn't barely eat/drink anything.

with DC1 i didn't have any early symptoms - just tested when AF didn't appear.

this time round - a bump! tbf tho, DC1 was only 11 months and i was still BFing, so no periods. went clothes shopping and had a "hang on, what's that" moment in uniqlo.

fingers crossed for your preferred outcome, justhayley!

Week before I got my bfp I was very hungry and very thirsty and was cramping and had very light spotting. So much so that I thought I was getting af early. The strange thing is we were trying for so long and every mmonth I would symptom spot but the month I found out, it was there staring me in the face all my symptoms and I never had a clue..was pretty shocked when I got my bfp

I kept having hot flushes both times well befpre missed period.

igirisu Mon 03-Jun-13 20:29:39

I cried every day for no reason, period pains but no period

Panzee Mon 03-Jun-13 20:30:50

Took me an hour to drink half a glass of wine at a party. Not like me!

MrsBucketxx Mon 03-Jun-13 20:32:10

really sore boobs, really sensitive to smells, and sharp tummy cramps ( due to implantation)

pocketandsweet Mon 03-Jun-13 20:52:34

nausea <sigh>

blondebaby111 Mon 03-Jun-13 21:11:31

Good luck hayley btw,let us know how u get on when u test x

froubylou Mon 03-Jun-13 21:26:41

Constipation and sore,heavy,itchy boobs. Then about the time I would have implanted I picked a cold bug up off sister which I never usually do. AF was due on the tues. I was pretty sure by the friday before to the point I wouldnt take any senokot to relieve my poor bloated tummy lol.

Got my bfp on the weds.

ladymalfoy Mon 03-Jun-13 21:32:40

Very hot at night,thrush and scarey growing boobs. POAS 7 days after my period should have started because I knew the signs from last time.

Futterby Mon 03-Jun-13 21:34:27

I had spotting and cramping that I just put down to af. Nope, a wee surprise baby grin

Futterby Mon 03-Jun-13 21:35:12

Oh, and sweating. Ungodly sweating :p

enormouse Mon 03-Jun-13 21:39:16

I went off coffee and very sweet things - turned down a bar of my beloved galaxy cookie crumble.
Also sobbing whenever I saw certain adverts, especially the dog one where the man says 'Bad dog…bad food…bad home… etc'. Made me bawl my eyes out. My cycles very regular so when I had the usual pms symptoms with no AF I just knew.

cravingcake Mon 03-Jun-13 21:53:06

Last pregnancy (my first) was crying at silly things on the tv, did a test 2 days before i was due, bfp.

This time my sense of smell has gone mental, can smell the smallest of things a mile off. I also had a lot of cramping at time of implantation, plus my breasts started to get that filling with milk feeling. Did a test 7 days before i was due, very very faint bfp, tested every day that week, by end of week a very definite bfp.

Tulipsandbuttercups Mon 03-Jun-13 21:55:26

Sore boobs and nausea. I'm 9+3, nausea has gone but boobs are killing me! Lol x

Fakebook Mon 03-Jun-13 22:00:56

First and second time, missed period. Third time, implantation bleed but didn't realise it was that and that I was pregnant until I missed my period.

Mutt Mon 03-Jun-13 22:02:10

Weeing constantly.

Well not constantly, but pretty much!

Futterby Mon 03-Jun-13 22:06:46

Oh, and I cried at this
