Anyone experience early signs?

I thought I knew my Body but didn't realise I was pg for 10 wks first time round

Horseshoe - Found out I was pg with ds at 5wks and dd at 3wks!!

With ds I tested the day after AF was due. Didn't really think I was pregnant as we'd been halfheartedly trying, but did the test before a big night out jeeeee-ust in case...and WHAM! BFP!

With dd, I honestly just did a test coz I was drunk and I had bought 2 packs of tests on special offer in Boots. That was November and we were going to start trying after Christmas.... went to the loo after drinking a bottle of wine, saw the tests, though "what the heck" and peed on one, then threw it in the bin. Don't know why, but I went back up half an hour later, took it out the bin and there it was!! Very faint, but there! That was 5 days before my AF was due.

So I had 2 veerrrrrrry looonnnng pregnancies!

When I was 3 days late for my period and that had never happened before. I didn't have any particular 'signs' or symptoms. It just felt like the usual sore boobs, cramps, etc. before my period. Then the period didn't show up, I tested 3 days later, and it was positive.

I was 3 weeks when I found I was pregnant with dd, I had sore boobs, painful nipples and was already starting the all-day throwing-up fest that was to be my life for the next 9 months.

I knew at 3 weeks with this one as I started to feel dizzy if I stood up quickly, and felt tired more than normal. With ds1 and ds2 it was about 5 weeks when I realised that I hadn't had a period.

With both my pregnancies I have at least suspected as soon as the deed was done .

Tested when AF 2 days late the first time and one day early the second time and those two lines clarified what I had thought .

I had some reeeally early signs this time, although I wouldn't have known what the signs were unless I'd already been pregnant - I had a nosebleed at about the time of implantation, and then they started happening regularly (soaking my pillow at night bleh!) I also got tearful and moodier than usual before my period was due... but I didn't get sore boobs until I was about 6 weeks gone and no morning sickness till about 6/7 weeks either... The cervical mucus (TMI!) changed quite quickly though, it was as if the fertile 'egg white' stuff changed to 'half cooked egg white'

With my first pg I didn't have a clue until I tested I think I was about 5 weeks, then at 6 weeks I started vomiting constantly and knew for sure!

What a ramble of useless info that was!

Nemo1977 Thu 07-Apr-05 15:23:35

with my firdst 2 pgs i didnt have a clue until blood tests were done[resulted in mcs but i never]

with ds I was 9 wks pg and didnt have a clue still had af etc
and with my last mc i was 7wks b4 i found out..again felt sick etc but didnt enter my head would be pg.

However i am stupidly convinced this month i am as am having a lot of symptoms that never really linked to pg with others but in hindsight were....doubt it will be true

fastasleep Thu 07-Apr-05 15:25:24

Actually I do remember the first time erm...making love to the red hot chili peppers and then thinking 'Oh my I'm pregnant' although I dismissed it completely...

anchovies Thu 07-Apr-05 15:26:12

I had a coil and hadn't missed a period so no reason to be suspicous but just woke up one morning and knew. Thinking back I did have very sore boobs and what I thought were terrible hangovers (morning sickness - whoops!) Found out dead on 4 weeks, wish I'd not realised until later as 12 weeks (was very worried with a coil) seemed like a very long way away!

LeahE Thu 07-Apr-05 15:31:20

I'd been feeling the urge to drink a lot of milk, and then I had a beer and it tasted odd. I'd been convinced that cycle was a washout.

fastasleep Thu 07-Apr-05 15:37:26

Ooh yeah I couldn't touch my beloved bacardi I had lots of

Evesmama Thu 07-Apr-05 15:41:34

throwing up and generally feeling l8ike i was gunna throw up every minute of the day at 4 weeks!, waited till end of week and did test, but already 'knew'..was doing strange things like..throwing up in the park while coming home sick from work, then painting the fence and understairs cupboard(scary fumes!!)
couldnt touch anything that was greasy like chips, still feel sicka t the thought of fajitas, was only eating cereal and tomato sauce crisps, and sense of smell went through the roof!!!!

Evesmama Thu 07-Apr-05 15:43:02

we first discussed having a baby on dp's birthday and the following year she was concieved on his birthday!!!!!

anchovies Thu 07-Apr-05 15:46:33

evesmama, I had tomato crisps (in fact tomato anything!) pretty much constantly! Was the only thing I still liked the smell of!

Evesmama Thu 07-Apr-05 15:47:28

yeah, me too!
it later changed to prawn cocktail as pregnancy developed

mummytosteven Thu 07-Apr-05 15:47:29

first suspected I was PG when I had bigger boobs despite having lost 10lb on a diet.

mummytosteven Thu 07-Apr-05 15:47:49

i loved chips, potatos, crisps etc when I was PG

fastasleep Thu 07-Apr-05 15:48:53

MTS I would have just thought it was the diet from heaven or something! Not that I want bigger boobs...ever.

colditzmum Thu 07-Apr-05 15:50:56

When I realised I had had PMT for 2 weeks, and my boobs reall hurt.

And I cried so much one day that I nearly dehydrated myself!

Evesmama Thu 07-Apr-05 15:50:59

couldnt even drive past a chippy!! or a macdonalds!!!
still sometimes get the same sick feeling when we drive past now and certain ambi purs make me bork!

fastasleep Thu 07-Apr-05 15:51:42

Oh god I can't do ambi purs...or anything like that [vomity face]

jampots Thu 07-Apr-05 15:53:07

With first pregnancy I completely went off coffee (which I used to drink by the bucketload) and felt extremely exhausted - however I often used to miss periods so that wasnt so high on my list of symptoms.

With second pregnancy my nipples went dark extremely early but I think I already just "knew" as about a week after supposed conception I was at my friend's mums house and her brother was there with his twins and they had chickenpox - I just kept thinking "I shouldnt really be here in case Im pregnant" and we werent even trying!

Evesmama Thu 07-Apr-05 15:53:44

ooh and cerutti 1881 or something aftershave!, used to love it, bought huge bottle for dp and had to actually chuck it away without him realising!!, couldnt walk near him or cuddle him when wearing it.
then one day my boss came in to shop and sat at my desk doing some paperwork and had same aftershave on!!!!!had to keep getting up to breath!!!didnt dare say anything though!!!
