Just wondered what everyone's very first early days symptoms were? The reason you considered taking a test?

Super-human sense of smell

Missed period

Intense, sudden nausea from smells. I instantly knew I was pregnant by this, way before I took a test. I think I was 7 days late when the nausea and increased sense of smell hit

Debilitating stomach pains. It was so bad that once i had the positive test i wept like a baby because i was sure it was ectopic, or a miscarriage. Nope, constipation! DD is 8m and my guts are still a nightmare.

Brown spotting on and off like the start of my period but then it didn't start

Nausea. By about 8/9 days DPO every time.

Oh and tiredness - falling asleep at 6pm

Period type pains and... Inside labia were very dark red

Spent most of the day at work running to the loo fòr a wee, very unusual, got to about 4.00 and realised hadn’t had a period for a few weeks, couldn’t wait to finish work and go pee on that stick!

Metallic taste in mouth by third pregnancy. First and second pregnancy, Incredibly painful breasts.

Sickness from smells

CaurnieBred Fri 26-Jun-20 19:28:44

My boobs immediately got bigger. Couldn't fit into a bra that had fit fine a few days previously

Hopefulhen Fri 26-Jun-20 19:29:19

I had a metallic taste in my mouth about three days after I conceived.

TrickyKid Fri 26-Jun-20 19:29:27

Went off my food and felt sick.

ComDummings Fri 26-Jun-20 19:29:29

Period pains for months. I checked my knickers multiple times a day until I was about 5 months pregnant because I was certain I would miscarry at any moment due to the cramps. Also extremely tender breasts. Then not long after came the nausea and superhuman sense of smell.

I took a test the first day after my period was due. I didn’t have any symptoms then (and have never really had them strongly).

Scubalubs87 Fri 26-Jun-20 19:31:31

With first pregnancy, it was my boobs. Instantly huge. This pregnancy, my sense of smell sharpened in a way it only had when I’d been pregnant. It was the reaction to smells that made me take a test.

Sore achy boobs first and then tiredness and sensitivity to smell

SisyphusAndTheRockOfUntidiness Fri 26-Jun-20 19:34:39

Insomnia. I wasn't even due my period yet. It didn't get better. (The night after I gave birth was fantastic though!)

Enormous and sore nipples
