Hi, I can't do a pregnancy test for another week, are there any symptoms that can be picked up earlier ?

Hi, I've been taking Clomid for 3 months now and last month it acctualy worked. grin (I mean, I produced an egg).
It's just over a week untill I can do a test, but I just wondered if there were any symptoms of early pregnancy that could be picked up this early? I'm just itching to find out. I can't do a test too early as I've had an injection of LH to release the egg but it could give a faulse positive.
I remember with my daughter I started feeling sick about 5 days before I could do a test. I acctually had hyperemesis with her, so it probubly wasn't a good sign.
So I'd love to know if there are any clues before I can test. smile

I went off alcohol before I had a positive test with my DD.
Sensitive boobs isn't an indicator for me as I get them every month just before my period - so I think that one depends on the person.
Good luck

I hardly ever drink (only at partys, where I tend to have too much). grin
I went off tea and coffee when I was expecting my daughter, so that could be something to look out for.

My symptoms were rather confusingly exactly the same as a period. In retrospect boobs felt kind of heavy as well as sore and I felt strangely hungry for about a week (but I suppose that wouldn't have been too early to test anyway)

yes I usually have sore boobs pre menstrual too, but early pg they also tingle!

I knew I was pg 8dpo (early test confirmed it). I can't explain it. I felt weird, like you do if you have a nap in the afternoon and you wake up and it takes a moment to remember who you are/why you're lying down/what day it is. I felt like that permanently. I recognised the feeling as I'd conceived 2 months previously but miscarried and felt exactly the same.

Good luck to you.

Thanks everyone. smile Today I feel as if my boobs are too big for my bra and a little sensitive, this is a first. wink Not that I'm complaining.
I have also been sweating more than usual. I had my shower this morning but now feel I need another one. This has never happened before either and I'm using my usual anti-persparent. I suppose it could be the drugs I've been given. I'm still hopefull though.
