Hi everyone I am back for more help, I am not due on for an other 5 days, but my boobs have been feeling filler and sore for a week and half now, also I have been more out of breath even walking up the stairs, and when I eat even small things I feel like I have eaten 10 meals lol, I don't want to test yet as I think it's too early, so just wondered what everyone else's symptoms was and if I could actually be pregnant smile

I felt nauseous and light-headed. I did a test - negative. A few days later it was positive!

Staceyaa Sun 01-Nov-15 13:38:32

Did you do a test b4 you was due on?

LineyReborn Sun 01-Nov-15 13:40:02

Yes. Mind you it was a few years ago and tests these says are much more sensitive.

these days

Staceyaa Sun 01-Nov-15 13:41:13

Okay yeah I suppose, I just don't know when to do one :/

Wait until you are due on so you can be confident the result is accurate.

My only symptoms were sore boobs, which I got every month anyway but they normally get better a day or so before I come on but stayed sore when I was pregnant, and dizziness.

Hi Stacey early symptoms are quite often just like the time of the month approaching, so none of us know until we do a test! Like Oyster said, it's best to wait to test the day you are due.

Staceyaa Sun 01-Nov-15 15:46:09

Okay thankyou everyone i will wait, it's just hard because I want to know lol but I suppose everyone feels same

Feeling breathless was definitely one for me. I did a twist in a yoga class, didn't involve any actual moving around, and was really out of breath afterwards, I just kind of knew then! Also my vision went slightly lopsided a couple of times. Only time it's ever happened was early in preg. Think I tested 2 days before AF was due.

Staceyaa Sun 01-Nov-15 16:25:48

It's so strange isn't it how you can be out of breath doing the littlest things, thankyou that gives me a little hope

Should I test in the morning ? My period is due 6th , I don't know how long I can wait sad

LineyReborn Sun 01-Nov-15 20:46:25

You could give it a go with one of the test sticks that detect early on, but they are not anywhere near the 99% accuracy you would get with testing a few days later.

Metallic taste in mouth from 3 days after conception. All 3 pregnancies

Staceyaa Sun 01-Nov-15 20:50:38

That's what I thought, I don't want to do one then get a false result sad ! Around 2 years ago i found out I was pregnant but lost it very early on, and I had a funny taste in my mouth but I haven't this time

lack of period

Bonkers mental vivid dreams.

You can try tomorrow with a first response but it needs to be first morning urine. So I would try the following day.

Only thing is. You test early, you have to be prepared to potentially get a negative. I got 3 x bfn's before getting the BFP

Greasy hair, wash in morning looking like I'd stuck my head in a frying pan by mid afternoon!

KatyN Sun 01-Nov-15 21:21:26

I'm with you ragged!!! This time and last time the first I knew about it was my period was late! We were trying both times and both times the positive test completely floored me!

My only symptoms were extremely perky nipples and constant chafing on my twice-weekly runs (normally I only get this every once in a while, but my skin has become overly sensitive since being pregnant and I've had to start wearing different shorts to stop it!) I ignored both symptoms because I was a dreadful symptom-spotter early on in TTC and assumed it was just circumstantial - I got the shock of my life when the test actually came back positive!

MissSMartin Mon 02-Nov-15 10:10:33

Mine was just extreme tiredness I could sleep for 12 hours and was going bed at about 5pm! and loss of appetite... I barely ate a thing for a whole week which is when implantation would have been occurring looking back. I found out really early when I was only 3.5 weeks x

Runningupthathill82 Mon 02-Nov-15 10:49:48

Nothing at all til the positive line appeared on the pregnancy test. But then I never got any of the usual symptoms in the run up to periods either.

Everythinggettingbigger Mon 02-Nov-15 11:02:43

the day before I was due I was hosting a macmillan coffee morning, and made everyone eats lots of cake, but couldn't bare the thought of eating any myself, it was knocking me sick just the thought, so I just knew and after everyone left I got a test and sure enough it was positive, 3 and a half weeks I was. After finding out I started to put 2 and 2 together, I had been feeling really dizzy the past week, off my normal food, bloated, extreme tiredness and nauseas.

good luck I hope its positive for you, please don't be disheartened if its not (a lot easier said than done I know)......back on the horse as they say wink

I was convinced a few months before that I was pg, all the symptoms, including a very late period, but I wasn't. sorry don't want to dampen your mood but just wanted to let you know that was in june/july I got pg in Sept so theres still hope, and that was without trying.

Staceyaa Mon 02-Nov-15 11:13:05

Thankyou Hun, I do hope it's positive but like you say if it's not we just have to keep trying till it happenes xx

Redhead79 Mon 02-Nov-15 21:12:26

I had all my 'usual' period symptoms so nothing until a day or so before I was due on....a VERY upset stomach and aversion to alcohol (was out on a big girls night and just didn't want to drink, which is not like me) then I was just really tired and nauseous, thought I was going down with norovirus as it was going round work at the time....
