Could any of you tell before your period was due? I'm feeling very sick and the slightest smell turns my stomach...I'm either ill or preggers!

With my last pregnancy (surprise), I was out shopping and felt really really dizzy that made me think crap I've not come on and bought a test.

With my planned pregnancy I noticed I was hungrier earlier in day, bloated and when I had to use the toilet five times on a 4 hr flight I had an inkling I was and I was! Didn't feel sick until about 5/6 weeks.

Good luck hope there symptoms x x

TLH0307 Wed 26-Apr-17 17:42:28

@Sunshinesaz I hope so too! No dizziness or needing lots of toilet trips yet. This is my first so I'm very new to it all, haha!xx

26w pregnant now and I knew right from the off. Baby wasn't planned and I've always been on the pill and just that month had decided to change as I started getting headaches - we had sex a couple of times unprotected. The second time was on a Saturday, on the Monday I messaged DP saying 'lol just checked period tracker and Saturday was my most fertile day, baby time'. We joked about it and 2 weeks later my boobs were KILLING me and I just knew. Basically I've only ever had unprotected sex twice and that was how I conceived, which I guess is lucky!

Short version: achy boobs about 2-3 weeks after conception x

Hot flushes.
Weird smelling wee.
Sore boobs.

I had a weird scratching feeling in my womb at 11DPO (a couple of days previous to this I felt some throbbing and aching on the left side of my uterus which I assume was in fact implantation pains.) Good luck!

Increased CM
Rapid heartbeat
Pms crankiness

No nausea til 6 weeks though.

MaryShelley1818 Thu 27-Apr-17 07:45:16

Sore boobs, heartburn, raised BBT and little white spots on nipples.

Smell of certain foods made me feel really sick. Also some hot flushes and tiredness x

ememem84 Thu 27-Apr-17 07:50:28

Initially I felt sick and bloated. Then the sickness and the sore boobs came. I'm now 18 weeks. Eep.

DT2016 Thu 27-Apr-17 08:01:17

First time I was super hungry from what felt like moment of conception and sore boobs.

Second time around, I had sore boobs but felt sure AF was on way as I had major grumps, what I thought was PMT and spotting. That pregnancy didn't end well tho sad

starlight36 Thu 27-Apr-17 08:11:01

Tiredness even when I'd had lots of rest and funny smelling wee both times.

crombanna Thu 27-Apr-17 08:13:00

More "gunk" following ovulation - watery.
Boobs hurt from the moment of conception. They normally get sore 2-3 days before my period.
Feeling hot and emotional.

mammabear4 Thu 27-Apr-17 08:32:53

Increased CM, constant mild car sick feeling, hot flushes, extra emotional (cried watching Annie with DD during "It's a hard knock life" 😂), certain food tasting off. Good luck FX for you!

mammabear4 Thu 27-Apr-17 08:40:31

Also bloated and achy in lower abdomen! I just got my BFP yesterday morning. I was feeling the same @TLH0307 thinking I'm definitely ill if not preggers!!

ForeverHopeful21 Thu 27-Apr-17 08:41:11

Symptoms before I knew I was pregnant:
The usual period type pains and heavy boobs.
Eating a lot! I felt hungry all the time but put I down to having a cold. Feeling 'run down', again I thought I had a cold, but looking back I was more tired with a couple of headaches and a little bit of a sniffle.
Racing heart anxiety type feeling even when relaxed watching TV (this is what actually made me take a test!).

Symptoms in the early days of knowing I was pregnant:
Completely gone off tea, suddenly couldn't stand the stuff.
Tiredness and nausea.
Difficulty sleeping at night even though I felt exhausted!
Increased urination ...waking up in the night to go to the toilet.
Eating, eating and more eating.

BigSandyBalls2015 Thu 27-Apr-17 08:44:23

Turning my nose up at a glass of wine ... unheard of

Gingerbreadmam Thu 27-Apr-17 08:45:32

starving from the minute i opened my eyes.

The bottled water i drink every day smelling like wet dog so i couldnt drink it.

Massive shock when i got bfp but afterwards i did think i should have known!

GeekyWombat Thu 27-Apr-17 08:46:14

Heightened sense of smell. I was like a drugs sniffer dog. Went into our spare room which has a reed diffuser which I never usually could smell and it hit me like a wall of horrible, aggressive vanilla. After that it was everything...

Catherinebee85 Thu 27-Apr-17 08:47:54

Terrible indigestion
Had to force down prosecco (christmas party season)
Mcdonalds twice in a week (was craving the salty fries)
Went off coffee

I'm just under 25 weeks now grin

SleepFreeZone Thu 27-Apr-17 08:48:41

Both times I had implantation bleeding and increased CM.

Littleonek Thu 27-Apr-17 22:16:52

Can I ask you guys how your body is a few days after ovulation. Ive had my first month in four years of naturally overlating and ive had stomach cramps since sunday night on and off. Its like a mini period cramp but not as painful. Is this normal when you overlate? Normally on the pill I only had cramps on the day I was meant to overlate and then it went.

MouseClogs Fri 28-Apr-17 16:06:59

Skin suddenly became very very dry around a week post ovulation. Was then gassy for a day, had absolutely perfect digestion the next day, then was constipated the day after. Remained constipated, then the crushing exhaustion and ENORMOUS boobs hit simultaneously a day or so later.

Got a positive the following morning, on what would have been about 13 days post ovulation.

MagicalMrsMistoffelees Fri 28-Apr-17 16:13:19

First and second time it was late periods.

Third time I was out shopping for bras and my usual size didn't fit. My boobs just looked massive. I don't know what possessed me or what I was thinking but I squeezed my breast and some liquidy stuff came out! Turns out I was 6 weeks pregnant.

I have no idea if all breasts do that or if it happens throughout pregnancy (I never did it again) or if it happens if you're not pregnant (still breastfeeding so not tried!). And still don't know why I did it in the first place!

Raffles1981 Fri 28-Apr-17 16:20:34

I was convinced the prosecco I had bought (Christmas) was off. My partner was telling me his glass was fine. He knew I was pregnant before I did! I had a cold, felt nausea at every turn and dinner time became a real chore for me. To cook and eat. Four months in now and I am only just getting my appetite back.
