We had ivf so we were symptom spotting, I had the cramps and was extremely tired like falling asleep at 7pm tired

DH looked at my nipples 6 days after our embryo transfer and said I was pregnant 🙈🙈

I am trying to conceive very excited this month to know if I am pregnant.
I have no symptons except, my nose if fully blocked in the morning. Had a little of bit of cramping yesterday ( i feel it was implantation cramps)
Did notice my ovulation date and Had sex on correct dates so really hoping to conceive. I am trying after 5 years of gap.
What advice do you ladies have to share with me.
I love this group!

Bad “period pain”, irritability and gagging when I brushed my teeth. Oh, and being “softer and friendlier” to people according to my lovely boss who actually guessed I was pregnant with dc2 and dc3 before I told her!

Horrendous urging at 15 weeks..worse in the morning and at night..isn’t this supposed to have passed sooner?? Think I’m in for a longgggg ride f**k😂😂

feeling crazy hungry instantly as opposed to being a bit peckish then gradually getting more hungry.... and also dizzy/vertigo feeling and a weird sharp pain in lower abdomin if I stretched to reach something at a certain angle

RunningBean Sun 17-Jun-18 13:00:42

Sore, swollen boobs and over emotional/moody before period due.

IncyWincySpiderOnRepeat Sun 17-Jun-18 12:59:14

Extreme fatigue and nipples that felt constantly like they were on fire...

DisturblinglyOrangeScrambleEgg Sun 17-Jun-18 12:56:53

Boobs, both times.

At only a couple of days past period due date (and I'm irregular anyway), the boobs felt odd and achey, and sure enough, I was pregnant.

Then attraction to orange juice, and complete aversion to the smell of coffee (I don't even know the taste, I couldn't get that close - despite coffee most days otherwise)

AnyLondoner Sun 17-Jun-18 12:41:50

Sore boobs and nausea.

Being in an absolutely foul mood: had the biggest row with my husband that we have ever, ever had, and resulted in me storming out of the house without a coat in February when it was freezing. We have never argued like that before or since. The next morning I woke up and felt normal again and couldn't work out what had come over me! mentioned it to my friend who said she had had the same when pregnant. Did a test... positive.

Oh and weird smelling wee!

fizzledays Sun 17-Jun-18 11:41:24

I was in a seriously can only describe as "weird mood". Definitely felt something going on in lower stomach then got a cramping feeling...did a test and was 2-3 weeks, I wasn't in the least bit surprised, I knew something was going on REALLY early!!!

StyleOfTheTimes Sun 17-Jun-18 11:13:47

Before I found out I was pregnant I thought I was coming down with flu! My legs felt like lead weights and ached, tired like I’ve never felt before and going really dizzy and faint. All made sense a week later when I tested 🤩

Lymphy Sun 17-Jun-18 10:43:20

Before a pos test I felt like I was getting a UTI I also felt a bit swollen and tingly down below, lasted a day no other symptoms until after testing

blorgzorb Sun 17-Jun-18 08:49:08

Stuffy nose, sore boobs and extreme tiredness. I also just felt a bit 'off', not myself.

polkadotpixie Sun 17-Jun-18 08:31:58

I had gestational diabetes with all four of my children, didn't know what it was first time round but with all three after that it was the first signs of my pregnancies. A thirst I couldn't quech, shaking with severe headaches to do with blood sugar of course. Really strange, blood tests done more or less straight after the births and completely back to normal. Not pleasant but so so worth it for every one of my precious little beauties

Pepper123123 Sat 16-Jun-18 10:56:38

My fingernails started to grow fast and strong. The only time it ever happened before was when I was pregnant with my first.

I didn't accept it was a sign until I had a positive test though.

Iletthedogsout Sat 16-Jun-18 10:32:35

I don’t know if anyone else has had this, but I got the weird nesting sensation and urge to blitz the entire house. This usually seems common towards the end of the pregnancy, but this was my first early symptom both times. In fact that’s how I knew I was pregnant the second time!

IveNoImagination Sat 16-Jun-18 10:23:00

First missed period, other symptoms didn't start until 6-8 weeks.

Second I was freezing cold in the middle of summer, like constant shivering each night, and falling asleep by 9pm. Also tmi but constipated.
