How soon do symptoms 'appear'? - Update post 32

Do you start to have symptoms before your BFP? If so, which ones? and how soon before AF is supposed to start?

AF is supposed to be here next Wednesday, but i'm having some minor symptoms (could also be other things too so i'm not thinking too hard about it). However, i haven't had "the dream" yet, so i'm thinking that i'm not and the symptoms are just coincidental. But, it has been a while and i can't remember when i started having symptoms with the last 2 (i'm 100% sure i had "the dream" before ANY symptoms with my last 2 so that is why i'm ).

Update Post 21 and 32

Still no AF and BFN on Day 30 of cycle. I guess it is a waiting game?

It's going to be different with every women and possibly every pregnancy. With my first I knew right away, before AF and a positive test. I had heartburn, my stools changed and my stomach looked like a road map with all of the veins showing and my boobs reallllllllllllly hurt. They hurt in the shower! With my second I was actually surprised I was pregnant. I didn't have all of the major changes as I did with my first. Maybe sore breasts but that was about it. No dreams here

Thanks.

My first two were so similar (despite being different genders) that i'm looking for those same symptoms. Maybe this time is different?

My boobs (in particular the one that usually produces the most milk is so sore/achy and WAY TMI it has "leaked" a few random times ) DD weaned after she was 3, but that was close to 1 year ago, so it is weird for that to be happening now

I got symptoms of pregnancy as soon as I 'o'd but was not pregnant. When I was, I got no symptoms. Fun, huh?

My PMS symptoms don't change whether I'm pregnant or not.
Sore boobs and cramps.

I never really get pg symptoms until around 5 weeks.

My early pregnancy symptoms are similar to AF symptoms, change in stool, headache and tired. But when I am pregnant I usually feel exhausted about a week before AF is due.
