I wasn't going to post here as I didn't really get many symptoms, and still haven't at almost 7 weeks. But then I figured that's still of interest to people TTC - they can then obsess over no symptoms tongue.gif

This lucky cycle we used Pre-seed, the sperm friendly lubricant (that is meant to help sperm along their way) and I also had ovulation pain. We BD the day of my positive OPK, and the next (so probably the day before ovulation, and the day of ovulation).

Early on I noticed that I would be running to the loo, almost wetting my pants - kinda like I had lost control of my bladder. But that's gone away now, and I am weeing normally!

I was ravenous from around 14DPO for a week or so, but that's subsided, and I'm just normal hungry (which is still pretty hungry!)
My boobs don't hurt, only my nipples are a little sensitive to touch, like before AF is arriving. My mouth has tasted funny sometimes, but nothing really. No morning sickness.

I don't feel tired - feel pretty normal really. Definitely don't feel pregnant, with so few symptoms. I may be back whinging soon though smile.gif

For me, AF was 9 days late before I got a bfp (well, okay 7 before I got an extremely faint BFP but at 9 days it was much stronger) and these have been my symptoms:

Lightheadedness/dizzy feeling - this gets worse unless i eat something.

Sore and swollen boobs (I have big boobs as is, and I could really notice the difference - they are really firm too)

Tiredness - like sweetdreams said, this for me starts when I wake up, I just don't want to get out of bed, and my eyes literally burn in the afternoon. I get home from work and crash on the couch!

Thats about it from me!

For me has been in the last couple of weeks:

Spots! cant believe it at 35 and breaking out like a teenager.

Tiredness - by about 1pm I am watching the clock wanting to go home and lay down.

Sleep patterns - with waking 2-4 times a night for toilet breaks, and also waking early is not helping with the tiredness.

Nausea - ok when I first wake..but within an hour until mid afternoon it is very constant.

Sore nipples/and sometimes whole boobs, especially when one of my doggies jumps up on me when I laying down coming for a cuddle Ouch!!

Craving red meat - generally I am a chicken gal and can take or leave red meat...but really have been wanting to eat it every night lately

Before that I don't as I was really sick for about 3 weeks with the flu so...


Edit: Oops forgot to mention the weight gain - more like thickening in the waist, also my brain has turned to mush at times - very forgetful

this has been me.....

for the last about 3 weeks - nausea where i've not felt right, tired, headache (just started today) - i didn't get a positive until CD 43 - i have no idea (honestly) when i O'd and was going to start temping the next cycle

right now i have cramps along the top of my stomach but i'm putting that down to nausea and a bit of heartburn, have had some cramping and my nipples are sensitve and i had to buy a new bra today cause they've gotten bigger - i knew something was going on cause i don't get sensitve nipples / cramps with AF

oh and i forgot about being a hungry hungry hippo smile.gif

Ok, i've just found out Im pregnant - yes im so excited!!

About 3 weeks i noticed that my nipples were sensitive, not boobs just nipples.
Woke up really really hungry, tummy was grumbling til i ate.
Felt quite sick for about 1/2 hour after getting up.
Frequent urination - like about 6 times a night.
Little pains in the belly that would come and go.
Not much discharge at all which is surprising.
and Backache

If i think ive anything else i will post again. That's all for now though

I tested on DPO14 and negative, DPO15 and positive - 1 day after AF was due.

Am just starting week 7, had BFP fairly early on (DPO 13) and 'knew' about a week before that cos of the way I was feeling...

Straight away I had period like cramping but it wasn't quite the same (hard to say why, but it was just different). This only stopped last week.

Since week 4 I've had very tender bb's and they've already grown a size, can see this becoming fairly expensive in the bra stakes if they carry on like this!

I also had mild nausea from the start, but this has recently got way worse. I find eating little and often really helps.

A colleague of mine is 10 weeks with bub no 2 and despite having no symptoms with no 1 is feeling like me with this one.

Another friend who is now 12 weeks with bub no 2 has had no symptoms whatsoever with either pregnancy (lucky lady).

Just goes to show that there is no 'normal' experience...

Early, early on i had on and off cramping for a week or more...felt just like the cramping i would get before AF was about to arrive but then AF never showed.
I got headaches, which i hardly ever get and i had a really sore lower back. My boobs seemed to be a bit bigger but wasn't too sure.

After i found out I got tender nipples...which turned to sore and then spread to my entire boob! The soreness has gone from the boobs now and i get a little bit of a sting in my nipples every now and then when touched.

I had massive weight gain and my boobs have gone from 12D to 14E!

I was very tired for a few weeks and would crash on the lounge in the afternoons!

I have had a few days when i have felt a little queazy but have not vomited yet!

ETA: Oh I just remembered a few more
I had severe reflux early on
I have had severe bloating the whole time
My skin has broken out something terrible (started on my head and back of neck has migrated down my back, my forehead, front of neck and my chest! It's like a rash but it is pimples EVERYWHERE! I so hope i get rid of that soon) and my skin and hair is OILY!!!!

Yahhh I can post in here now smile.gif

From about 3DPO- sensitive nipples

9DPO- Temp Dip
I did get some Implant spotting as well. Very little blood..

From 10DPO- My BBs felt bigger. Also felt like they were stretched a bit inside. Also had a funny feeling under my belly button. I have also been sick with a bad virus (cough and running nose etc) so I think that has taken alot away from my symptoms!!

12DPO- First of many HPTs with faint line (this was 3 weeks and 5 days)
15DPO- Positive wee test at Drs
(ended up doing 12 HPTS!!)

Since 15DPO, I have been bloated big time, BB's are even bigger, skin break out.

Today is 5 weeks and 1 day and I can say I have had my first bit of MS this morning- feeling just discusting like if I dont eat I will be sick!

Yippppeeeeeeee I can post here at long last!!

The only signs I had (after obessing about EVERY little sign/symptom over the last 12 months) was VERY SORE boobs - they feel 2 cup sizes bigger and very very bruised - not my nipples just my boobs. And they are popping out of my bras!

Thats it! No changes in CM, no extra hunger, tiredness, sleeping - nothing out of the norm cool.gif

How exciting I can finally post in here!

My very early symptoms include:

-Nausea: from the day after BD! I actually Pm'd someone else here and told them I thought I might be pregnant because of it. This was quite bad for a few days, no vomiting, just constant nausea. A lot of the time it seemed to be wind. Not feeling too bad at the moment.
-Sore breasts: They are usually sore in the last week of my cycle. But were sore for longer and hurt more. Dad-to-be actually thought they looked different, but I couldn't tell.
-Back cramps: I don't usually get them until after AF starts. But I've had some bad cramps with no AF.
-And the big ones: No AF and the second pink line that came up faster than the control!

I'm only about five weeks, so I'm sure I'm not going to feel so good for the rest of my pregnancy!
Introducing our little cub. Dates to be confirmed - working on June 19, 2006!

I think my very first symptom was like a tingly, buzzy, weird feeling in my nipples.

Then I had fatigue - not sleepiness, but physical fatigue where I just couldn't muster the strength to do anything.

After that I started to get cramps - similar place to AF cramps, but felt completely different. AF cramps for me are a dull, constant, intense ache, whereas these cramps were more of a stabbing, intermittent pain.

I think I was a little emotional & moody but no different to pre-AF.

That's about all! smile.gif

Currently at 4weeks 3days, my symptoms have been:

* Fairly strong cramps exactly like period paid from 10dpo, strong enough to wake me up in the night and keep me awake, but not as bad as actual period pain.

* Skin break out - even have a bright red pimple on my arm! My nose was so swollen with two of the worlds biggest and worst pimples, the skin is actually now peeling off my nose now that the pimples have gone! Guess my poor skin was overstretched beyond capacity! Going along with this: Oily hair - I feel like a human oil factory. When they said that you get a pregnant glow, I didn't think they meant this kind of glow!

* Lots of creamy CM that didn't dry up and disappear as my due date approached, as it usually does.

* One episode of loose bowels the moring I woke up on 10dpo with the first period cramps, which were the worst that morning that they have been up till this point.

Aside from all this, I have nothing. I am now 3 days late and have 6 positive urine tests and a blood test since 12dpo. If it wasn't for the continual cramping and the fact that I was monitoring my cycle I don't think I would have any idea that I am pregnant (being a funky cycles girl). Definately no nausea, no sore or growing boobs (feel ripped off!), no fatigue or change in appetite/urination/waking patterns.

Good luck girls!
