Got what felt like a cold and hayfever both at the same time.

Going to the loo lots, but only passing an eggcup's worth of strong smelling, bright orange wee at a time.

Just 'knew'; felt different.

Very, extremely, bone crushingly tired!!! about 4/5 days after conception!!

7 days after conception putting down (yes, putting down!) a bag of m&ms because they tasted "too chocolately."
Was very tired and just "felt" it. Also very hot!

mmmm all sounds like me...but is it psychosomatic /wishful thinking??? A whole week to find out....

I was visiting New York on business trip and we had taken some time out to do some sightseeing. As we were visiting the Statue of Liberty I came over feeling extremely weird, a mixture of queasiness, low blood sugar (as in trembling) and a need to sit down. It only lasted ten mintues but later discovered I would have been just two weeks pg to the day. x

just not feeling "right"
Funny taste in mouth
everything seeming like hard work - pushing lo in pram.
doing stupid things - taking washing upstairs rather than outside to hang it out.

Giant sore veiny boobs and generally feeling absoutely knackered. Also when the hair dresser made me a cappuccino and I couldn't drink it cos it tasted revolting (normally I drink loads of coffee)......that was when I decided to go home and immediately do a pregnancy test!!!! It was a BFP! - this coffee thing has happened in all 3 of my pregnancies. Weird. `Oh and I was convinced my wee smelt 'different' - and that was about 1 or 2 weeks even before my BFP.
Good luck!

bubbling feeling in abdomen instead of af type feelings
bleeding gums
freezing cold

MarkStretch Thu 11-Sep-08 14:37:30

Boobs hurt so much when I ran upstairs that I wept.

MarkStretch Thu 11-Sep-08 14:39:03

Oh and that weird metallic taste.

Couldn't eat my favourite tortilla chips because they tasted too salty.

Actually I had that metallic taste again the other day and I'm 18 weeks hmm

Tinkerisdead Thu 11-Sep-08 14:43:02

def the tiredness, had fallen asleep at 4pm on the sofa for three days in a row. also was in the middle of decorating, had done three rooms but when i came to the bathroom i felt funny everytime i went up the ladder. when i got BFP it was a massive lightbulb moment!!

ajm200 Thu 11-Sep-08 14:44:44

Tiredness, lightheadedness

SpangleMaker Thu 11-Sep-08 18:48:56

Sore boobs 4 days before AF - not unusual for me, but more painful than before. Didn't notice anything else at all until a day after AF due when I had a sudden feeling of light-headedness - also very very thirsty.

divedaisy Thu 11-Sep-08 19:36:34

Oh!! Exhausted, irritable (my hubby told me that was how he thought I was BFP weeks before I tested!), huge heavy sore boobs, running to the loo more often, forgetful(??), feel bloated, hot and nearly faint if I stand too long (I had to grab my 5 year old in Boots the other day just to get outside for some fresh air! Everything was beginning to buzz - not nice), thirsty, have had the metalic taste in my mouth (but not this time), go of tea (though not this time - maybe it's a girl!)
Did I mention the huge heavy painfully sore aching boobs - I just want to scratch them off and strap them down so they don't move - yeh and irritable... see??!!
Great isn't it!!?

Oh and I forgot to mention the ahem 'wind' blush that I am currently experiencing (at 7 weeks pg). For the last couple of weeks it has been dreadful and I'm not the only person I know to have experienced this bizarre and un-ladylike side effect of pregnancy. Hope it stops soon.......grin Don't have a clue what causes it but it has also recently beeen accompanied by a touch of heartburn. (Marvellous).
