MrsJohnCusack · 26/06/2006 14:13

am 5 weeks pregnant

early symptoms for me:
yes - the nuclear-waste-yellow wee - always the earliest sign IME
superwoman sense of smell
completely insane dreams
a stuffy nose
head like cotton wool

now the sore boobs, nausea, and carb cravings are kicking.
plus last time a road map of blue veins on boobs (I am very pale though) - haven't noticed that so much this time

MrsJohnCusack · 26/06/2006 14:13

kicking in

beansontoast · 26/06/2006 14:13

OP posts:
MrsJohnCusack · 26/06/2006 14:14

Feistybird · 26/06/2006 14:15

went off my morning coffee

beansontoast · 26/06/2006 14:19

...its more of a wrestle surely?

OP posts:
MrsJohnCusack · 26/06/2006 14:19

suzywong I was arfy, the drunk from Twickenham (as opposed to arfishymeau, the 3G specialist from Oz)

suzywong · 26/06/2006 14:20

and were you also GeorginaA?

snowleopard · 26/06/2006 14:21

Itchy nips,"full" feeling boobs, need to wee, and - this sounds mad but - a distinct sensation of "building" going on in the womb area. I woke up one morning and "just knew" because it felt like there was scaffolding in there.

MrsJohnCusack · 26/06/2006 14:22

I was georginars, then georginarf
GeorginaA is someone else who has been here a lot longer than me! (and why I changed my name to arfy - little knowing that further confusion would ensue.....)

muma3 · 26/06/2006 14:22

my dp noticed my nipples were getting darker before "could i be pregnant " entered my head !!!! think it was before i was even due my period .

MrsJohnCusack · 26/06/2006 14:23

yes darker nipples was pretty early last time
and I do kind of know what you mean snowleopard about the scaffolding - good description!

both times I wouldn't have said that I just knew, but I did think 'I'll just do a test in case'
