Just found out I'm pregnant! Hubby and I have been trying for about 9 months so over the moon.
Personally feel like symptoms are a little different to PMT, I'm not bloated at all which would be the norm for period time. Wouldn't say I'm queasy (yet!) but don't feel like eating or drinking certain things. Feel very tired too.
Hope this helps and I wish you well. grin)

Mama5: too scared! But will try and muster up the courage!
Myweeangel: congratulations! Wishing you a happy healthy pregnancy.
I'm just extremely tired. Boobs not sore at all. Food doesn't appeal at all, tastes bland and flavourless.
Thanks for sharing. Maybe these early signs surface more the more further along you are. Please keep your FX for me. Been ttc for 2 years. No joy.

1st time, hardly any symptoms until a few days before period was due. Then I suddenly off my food (had to physically spit out a piece of mango as I thought I was going to vom) and also, I just 'knew'. Sure enough, was a day late and got a BFP. I did also have a dry mouth & throat, but wasnt thirsty IYSWIM.

Next time, the first thing I noticed were my boobs! I remember catching a glimpse of myself getting in to the bath about 6 days before AF was due and got really freaked out. Boobs just looked different, the areola and nipples looked darker and swollen and had huge blue veins running around. Each day after that they got more and more painful to the point I was wearing a sports bra to bed, and I'm only a 34b!! Again, I went off my food when I got my BFP.

Both times, the days before AF was due I was getting the same pre-AF type symptoms (twinges & cramps, feeling of 'wetness' where I kept rushing to the loo expecting AF to be there!)

If you ask my DH, he'd tell you that my moods were horrific, and I admit I felt like a proper moody bitch for the full 2ww. grin

Good luck!

Thanks for that ifatfirst. I can really relate to going off the food, but apart from that I've just been extremely tired and COLD! I feel so tired and cold, I have been napping under my beautiful warm duvet most of the day today. Had to drag myself out at 3pm when we had family over. Now back I. Bed again. Wish I could just stay here. Keep falling asleep. Have to force myself to stay awake?! Sometimes think am coming down with something as limbs feel achy.

Also apart from Having gone off most food, am loving coke(normally drink water) and can't get enough of ice cream!

Starving. Tired. Huge veiny boobs and nipple expansion. Unexplained foul mood for about 10 minutes which then disappeared as rapidly as it had appeared.

BFP.

HOW early MissMarjori?

rimmer08 Wed 31-Aug-11 22:50:20

Hi, am about 3 /4 weeks and so far...
Cramping like period pains
Pooing a lot ( don't know if this is a common thing)
Gone off chocolate

I felt a tightening at the front of my stomach - felt as if there was a metal plate there. This was before I missed my period so must have been fairly early on.

Crownjewels Wed 31-Aug-11 22:55:37

Rimmer: I can relate to everything you've just said. Hope it brings me a BFP too. Congratulations on yours, and good luck.
Sue: I've been putting the tightening in stomach together with frequent toilet visits together and assuming I was coming down with something.
You ladies are convincing me of impending good news ... FX :-)

rimmer08 Wed 31-Aug-11 23:19:04

Thanks crownjewels smile good luck for your bfp! .
Also been farting a lot ;)

MollieO Wed 31-Aug-11 23:26:54

At 3 weeks an overwhelming sense of smell.

Hiya, I've been pregnant three times and can honestly say I didn't have any symptoms before my BFP, not even a hint that I might be pregnant, felt exactly the same as I would have before my period. However by 5 weeks morning sickness had week and truly kicked it, that was my only really symptom until my bump appeared.

Fingers crossed for your BFP soon

Indigestion, and waking early with lots of energy. Note: the latter symptom was combined with inability to stay awake after 8pm.

Then the feeling of permanent car sickness for 8 weeks.

Fingers firmly crossed for you!

p.s. oh yes, the metallic taste too, but that came after POAS.

Hi,

The week before my period I had a couple of dizzy spells and felt tired. My boobs were so painful with the dark blue veins too. This was my third month fo trying so knew it felt different. Then a few days before my period I started getting cramps just like every other month so got really disappointed as I thought I wasn't pregnant but then my period didn't start and I got a BFP!

Good luck!

heartburn before bfp but didnt think anything of it. Then after bfp runny nose, burping loads and feeling freezing cold. Good luck smile

MissMarjoribanks Thu 01-Sep-11 22:11:33

Crown - my symptoms started extremely early. My foul mood turned out to be the day after conception. The rest all started by about 7dpo. I got my BFP 9dpo though, but ovulated on day 19 of my 29 day cycle.
