whats yours?

A sense of smell rivaled only by blood hounds.

MumHadEnough Sat 30-May-09 00:47:04

Extremely sore freezing cold boobs sad
Mad mental hormonal mood swings and crying (which I didn't understand because I didn't know I was pg).
Crampy feeling as if af about to start.

Will never forget the sore boobs though, felt as if I had severe joggers nipple. Only way to describe was as if I'd ran a marathon, braless, with my 36dd nips rubbing off a hessian sack! hmm

Unexpected tiredness before af is due
Reduced appetite - especially for chocolate hmm
Heightened sense of smell

Thandeka Sat 30-May-09 07:37:55

Fizzy nipples!

Nips felt like they were dipped in lemonade and sprinkled in sherbet!

A kind of scratchy burrowing sensation in the womb area.

decafgirl Sat 30-May-09 22:24:29

Feeling really sick and only being able to sort myself out by eating something.

Had been trying to get pg for over a year and I still didn't catch on!

Had what I thought was period pain too smile

MommyHasaHeadache Sat 30-May-09 22:37:49

First sign (in hindsight) was going off Diet Coke and bleeding sore gums. Also had what I thought were period pains and was convinced I was about to come on! Must be lucky because I never once suffered from sore boobs or nips!

christie00 Sat 30-May-09 23:48:26

Needing to go for a pee (or 2) in middle of night - never usually need to, but when pg, regular as clockwork, even before period is due.

Also bleeding gums when cleaning teeth!

constant metallic taste and the super sense of smell, sudden aversion to wine

PerfectPrefect Sun 31-May-09 00:15:30

With DTDs I was nauseaus from 3 days after conception but I am not sure if that was nerves after TTC for the very first time.

With DD3 I didn't even relise I was late until I got the metalic taste (whcih I didn't get with DTDs)

mamknowsbest Sun 31-May-09 00:21:48

Sick, sick, sick thought I had food poisoning. Sore boobs, split trousers (this happened twice) thought I might need to go on diet!!! strange taste in mouth, intense sense of smell. sudden dislike of coffee and falling asleep on the sofa every evening after work at 6pm. Took the test and bingo blue line appeared.

nickschick Sun 31-May-09 00:25:22

Sore boobs and being sick at the sight of a frying pan (v embarassing vomiting in asda homeware dept- dh offered to clean it up blush)

Bump02 Sun 31-May-09 10:02:19

The smell of melted cheese made me reach (usually that'll make me hungry) smile

Plus I cried like a little girl for days (more than usual PMT tears)

Oh and wanting to sleep....LOTS!!

Good Luck It's all fun wink

Hugely reduced appetite.

Crying at the drop of a hat. Too serious about everything.

Lethargic. Not wanting to go for any invigorating walks in the sunshine (when we get it).

A weird feeling of having pulled a muscle in my breasts hmm

I had a nasty cold virus this time and my nose would bleed! I NEVER get that.

(I can't own up to the metallic taste as my nose was blocked with the cold.)

Smell of tomato soup following me around.

Also, like a previous poster, sick at the sight of a frying pan (actually nauseaous seeing the word 'frying'.

Coffee smelled like ciggy smoke.

Headache.

Raging thirst.

dogrilla Wed 03-Jun-09 12:13:01

sides of boobs hurting.

strange feelings in my abdomen, ranging from pain to a scratchy, fizzy, tickly feeling that made me want to laugh out loud.

tendency to get rather cross.

I kind of 'just knew' but had been trying for a while and convinced myself i was pregnant every month so tried to tell myself this might just be the same.

when I had a glass of wine it felt like my abdomen was made of lead - just wrong and poisoned. the next morning I had a BFP.

stillstanding Wed 03-Jun-09 12:15:28

Very, very tingly boobs (oh how I wish I could feel that sensation now!)

bagpuss Wed 03-Jun-09 12:18:17

This time really bad heartburn was the giveaway. DH said he already knew what the result was going to be before I took the test.

hoochymama Wed 03-Jun-09 12:18:26

starving hungry in the night, could not sleep until I ate

slushy06 Wed 03-Jun-09 12:27:40

My boobs were boiling hot to touch and sore nipples that doubled in size and never stopped sticking out vblush. Also tiredness.

christmasmum Wed 03-Jun-09 13:12:35

The first time I was pg it ended in miscarriage but I had every single symptom in the book - constant weeing, metallic taste, tingly boobs etc. The next, which ended with my DD, I had absolutely NO symptoms at all. Have just found out I'm pg again and again have NO symptoms. Just thought this might reassure some people in the 2WW that you can't always spot things

wasabipeanut Wed 03-Jun-09 14:37:14

I had sore boobs and tingly fizzy nipples!
Also tiredness.

I have to say though the main giveaway was my temperature chart which then made me look out for other symptoms.

rostbeef Wed 03-Jun-09 16:55:53

I was freezing cold at night but with hot nipples...!

bubblagirl Wed 03-Jun-09 17:05:33

couldn't stand the smell of dp and couldn't drink tea
