Hey I'm new here not sure I'm posting in the right place I'm on mobile.. and don't really want to ask anyone i actually know. I'm having different symptoms to my first little one. But tingling in my chest. And really bad cramping like I'm about to start period but not arriving. Cramps have been two full days now. I am due in 2 days all tests negative so far.

Mine was going off chocolate or rather not particularly fancying it.

Period cramps

Sighing Wed 08-Jun-16 20:35:43

Crying at stupidly inane things.

First time really awful back pain

Second time crippling exhaustion that nearly made me fall over asleep at the drop of a hat

Neither was pleasant. hmm

tinglely boobys, and going off tea, everytime

Wanting to throw up on my bosses shoes 3 days before I did the test. Same this time.

Strong sense of smell for me!

With DS, I was voraciously hungry.
I probably wouldn't have even had HcG high enough to test + on a test, but I woke up absolutely ravenous, eating two double cooked breakfasts every morning for around 5 weeks blush. Found out I was pregnant around a week after this started.

With DD1, lower stomach cramps and bleeding gums when brushing my teeth.
With DD2, tender breasts and a feeling of pins and needles in my nipples (sorry! blush) and sickness very early on.

I went off coffee and had heartburn.

thecatsarecrazy Wed 08-Jun-16 20:45:32

Strong sense of smell for me too. And pulling cramps in lower stomach

Weird dreams, being very hot / thirsty overnight, a particular kind of tiredness that I now know is due to pregnancy. With DD my boobs were excruciating, but not with DS.

Rage, sore boobs, period cramps. All disappeared when I got a BFP and then I had no symptoms at all apart from missed periods until she started kicking. I never thought I'd be so desperate to feel sick, but not even a trace!

SignoraStronza Wed 08-Jun-16 20:49:02

Rage. Pure, unadulterated rage. Oh, and went off chocolate too!

Knackered46 Wed 08-Jun-16 20:50:45

Feeling slightly 'odd ' slightly dizzy, sore chest, and a bit pully and crampy - quite a lot like just before my period, but not quite right?

abigwideworld Wed 08-Jun-16 20:51:10

Bleeding gums and sickness! Didn't start til 6 weeks though.

5minutestobed Wed 08-Jun-16 20:51:31

First time was a really bad throat infection that coincided with af being due (I'm not really someone who gets ill often) and second time was a uti when af was due, again unusual for me. Plus my sense of smell went crazy.

You know I don't know... With Dd I just knew. I was already 6 weeks with her when I took that test. I went off tea within days of getting a positive

Ds...I was craving Chinese for several days and I just felt a bit off. First test was negative but I did one again the next day and got a positive. Went off tea almost instantly again

Ellie06 Wed 08-Jun-16 20:54:42

Really bad lower back pain for two days

Merd Wed 08-Jun-16 20:55:22

You can go off tea? stops trying instantly in horror

NeedACleverNN Wed 08-Jun-16 20:58:33

Yep...I went off with both. Tried to drink it but it just didn't taste right. That first cup of tea after giving birth though.....bliss

BendydickCuminsnatch Wed 08-Jun-16 20:59:44

Missed period, was a week late by the time I tested. My only symptom really was awful heartburn.

EveryoneElsie Wed 08-Jun-16 21:00:18

I cant explain it, I just 'knew' I was.
A couple of weeks later I went off tea and coffee and got morning sickness.

C2H5OH Wed 08-Jun-16 21:00:58

Dramatic vertigo/nausea at 48-72 hours after, so actual conception with first child!

Massive hunger with second child, noticed half an hour after DC1 had picked up some pregnancy related thing in a baby/child shop. Shop worker smiled knowingly saying "well maybe he knows something". I laughed, bitterly, convinced I was too old and yet another month was going to go by without conception (this was month three of TTC and I was 40, so I was clearly already in some kind of crazed hormonal state). When the huge hunger hit me half an hour later I knew it was time to test - that was probably the day my period was due.
