Have been reading about "early" pregnancy symptoms but not sure how early these can normally start...

Think I'm now 1 dpo so just wondering what sort of symptoms I may start to notice whilst I'm getting through the 2ww (if it's been our month for a bfp I mean!)

Some people say that they go to the toilet alot more, get headache, feel dizzy, veiny or sore boobs.

In my tww, the only thing I got was overly emotional but two very stressful things happened before my bfp's so it's only thinking back afterwards that made me put two and two together.

Good luck smile

It's unlikely to feel any symptoms until at least 6dpo.

I noticed that on 7-8dpo (I wasn't tracking ovulation so can't be 100% sure about dates) I was hit by utter exhaustion for no reason. I remember sitting at my desk at work, yawning all day and barely being able to keep my eyes open. It wasn't just a 'normal' tired, but just complete fatigue - it was really odd.

A few days after that my colleagues noticed I was going to the toilet all the time and of course, when they highlighted it, I became really aware of it. I was needing a wee every few hours - not huge wees obviously because of how frequently I was going, but I was always getting the urge.

At about 13/14dpo I looked in the mirror without my bra on and my boobs just looked a little bigger. Not huge amounts but enough to make me notice.

I got my BFP the next day smile

Both times I felt very bloated and need to burp and fart a lot (sorry TMI!)

Only symptoms I got though until 6 weeks when I started puking and didn't stop until I gave birth angry

Thanks all, did any of you get implantation bleed and if so when?

I was bloated and generally run down, I had some spotting (not sure if it was implantation) about DPO 16.

I didn't get the typical 'implantation bleed' when the fertilised egg first attaches to the endometrium lining and apparently only 15-20% of women do.

I had some old/brown blood appear when I was 7 weeks pregnant and again when I was 10 weeks and I was told it was a result of blood being shed as the egg burrows deeper into the lining.
