I am just wondering What did you notice in the early weeks of your 2nd, 3rd, etc. pregnancy that you didn't notice w/ your first pregnancy? The kinds of things that made you thing hmmm, maybe i am and then you took a test and found out your were pregnant.
Did anyone's tummy start sticking out more than normal(and like the first month or month and a half) before you took the test and found out it was positive?
Did your bathroom habits change?
etc. :)

exhaustion. I'm not much of a mid-day sleeper, but my goodness. I could not keep my eyes open. I also started throwing up early in the am. And this was before I found out!!!!

Alright, my tummy is having major sticking out issues. Dh said something. I wouldn't have a pooching out tummy this early on(still 4 days til period) would i? I have only been off the iud for one period so maybe my body is trying to adjust and i am just having pms bloat but dang, I could convince someone that i am a couple of months along at the moment. It is just weirding me out.

Oh gosh...I didn't notice anything earlier!! I really had no clue I was pg! But we were trying so I did test and I found it was + but I was so surprised. I had a ton of early symptoms with my first but NOT with my second child.

Things I noticed with latter pregnancies were exhaustion big time! Peeing at night which I rarely do, but its every night in my 1st trimester. Gagging when I brush my teeth or have ANYTHING in my mouth (like gum, hair, etc.) Sore boobs, AF-like cramping, vivid dreams, bleeding gums... my list could go on and on! LOL With #5 I started feeling symptoms like 6 dpo according to my 1st u/s. My DS had his b-day party on a Saturday and after everyone left I fell asleep on the couch for 4 HOURS!! I took a test on Monday and it was a BFP, AF wasn't due until Friday at the SOONEST and my u/s on that Tuesday hardly showed anything! Some people just have more symptoms than other people though.

I should be starting around Thursday but i almost gave in to poas this afternoon. I kept telling myself that if my period came it would tell me if i wasn't and if it didn't then it would tell me i was. Let's see how long that theory lasts.
I just am annoyed that i have been walking on the treadmill for the past month every other night faithfully and here i am with a bigger stomache. That just isn't fair. :fit:

Well, i took a test today. I can stop yelling at my treadmill because i am prego. Kind of bittersweet at this time in our life. We started ttc and then dh was told he had to go before a medical review board and may get discharged from the military. I am happy though and want things to work out so badly.

Mines due in 8 days. I wish I could test now. I keep getting dizzy which is exactly what happend with dd #1. Anywhoo I'm very happy for you. Keep us all updated :goodvibes:
