Just wanting to see what sort of things people experienced, I know everyone is different!

What were the first symptoms of pregnancy that you experienced?

Excess saliva! Weird and gross, I’d find my mouth filling up with saliva constantly made me gag a bit. Also metallic taste.

These were way before I got a bfp.

Not getting drunk when drinking!

My boobs went HUGE overnight. I went to a fitting for my wedding dress a week before and it was fine.
The next week, they couldn't do it up over my bust and there was a 2/3 inch gap.

Overwhelming tiredness - I'd fall asleep whenever I sat down anywhere.

And sore boobs - that's when I twigged grin

Heartburn and a metallic taste in my mouth. And little squiggly pains in my lower abdomen.

I didn't get any, just thought I was putting on weight mentioned it to a colleague my boobs were getting fat and couldn't do my work shirt up! Then I got period cramps but no period and randomly decided to test, was already nearly 9 weeks!

Absolutely horrendous lower back ache, to the point that I cried walking home from work. And I couldn't make it through a day without at least 2 naps.
