Re: First symptoms-anyone care to share?

With my daughter, literally right after conception I started having vomiting and heart burn. Thought I had gall bladder problems. Then I started having the sore boobs.Had a blood test at the doctors and found out at three weeks.

With my son, I had implantation bleeding so really, it was the positive pregnancy test. Nausea made it to about six weeks (wow, big improvement there) and the "girls" didn't grow until four months.

Re: First symptoms-anyone care to share?

With DS my boobs hurt so bad that when I took a shower I started crying when the water hit them! I was 19, had been married for 3 months and didn't have a CLUE what pregnancy symptoms were. I called my mom and mentioned the sore boobs and she said "Uh oh..." LOL

With DD I was visiting my mom in NM and my lower back was hurting BAD. I kept saying "Man, I'm about to start my period and it's gonna be BAD this month. I'm in so much pain!" Then I kept falling asleep randomly and without warning. By the end of that day I knew it was time to pee on a stick! LOL

Re: First symptoms-anyone care to share?

this time, I knew when I O and I knew we had an oopsie several days before. I just knew I was going to be pregnant.

maybe 3-4 days after O I noticed nausea coming and going and my boobs looked bigger/fuller and were sore.

Then on day 7 after OI had some cramping which was implantation cramping. lasted about a day.

I thought I was loosing my mind though, I had all these preggo symptoms but none of the tests were showing up positive. Ididn't get a positive until AF was 5 days late.
I've been Gobbled!!!!

Re: First symptoms-anyone care to share?

At 35dpo I looked at Dh with fire in my eyes and demanded that he drive me to the store to buy brownies. I insisted on buying TWO pans of brownies, instead of just one. I was not even acting rational about it... lol...

DH then steered me to the pregnancy test isle. I resisted, said there was no way I could be pregnant, I was just pmsing and needed chocolate. But, he bought a test anyway. It was positive. (We had been ttc for a year and I have finally just given up. Stopped charting, stopped thinking about it. We were supposed to go see specialists that same month.)

The next symptom I had was starting to show around 9 weeks. I had a very boring first trimester.

Re: First symptoms-anyone care to share?

This is still so crazy for me to think about, since we ttc'd our boys for two years and ended up taking Clomid to conceive them. I analyzed every little possible symptom every month, but nothing.

This time, we were using protection and were not planning on having more children. I was sitting here at the computer, looking at the calendar and planning my birthday four weeks later, which would have involved lots and lots of margaritas. I suddenly realized I was a few days late. First thing I did was squeeze my boobs, which were definitely sore. I didn't think anything of it at all; I was often late and my boobs were always sore before AF. But then I figured if I was going to partake of any margaritas in the near future, I should probably take that test sitting in my bathroom closet. A couple of minutes later I was staring at myself in the mirror in complete shock, with a positive hpt in my hands. I'll never forget that moment.

So. My symptoms were sore boobs. I was pretty emotional too. But I always get emotional and have sore boobs before AF as well. Now the non-stop puking that started a week later? THAT was not a typical AF symptom.

Re: First symptoms-anyone care to share?

Both times I've been pregnant, 6 or 7 days after ovulation/conception, I started feeling a little light headed/slightly dizzy, was SUPER thirsty, and seemed to have more gas. That combination of things for the week before I could test was a giveaway - both times I knew I was pregnant even before I took the test :-)

Re: First symptoms-anyone care to share?

I *knew* I was preg. both times immediately after dtd

But my first symptom was car sickness....I've always gotten a little car sick, but it was so bad that I would have to lay the seat back in the car even if we were only going a block or two. Then sore boobs with #1, with #2 I didn't really notice that.

right now, I'm in a 2ww so maybe I'll have something to report soon.........

Re: First symptoms-anyone care to share?

I had to PEE!!!!!! ALL DAY LONG!!! And usually it was just a tinkle, but I couldn't even hold that! And this for me was NOT normal. I usually could go to work and come home without ever going to pee until I got home. It took me a few days before it hit me....I'm pregnant. Of course it was just a few weeks so hadn't been time for my AF yet. So I dreadfully had to wait till I could test, and SURE ENOUGH BFP! But I just knew it already.

Re: First symptoms-anyone care to share?

We were not trying. One night I realized my nipples were really, really sensitive! Way, way overly sensitive. . . .and it got me thinking. Then, I noticed that things down below, smelled different.
So I realized I could not remember when I had my last period, and off to the store I went to buy a test. The day before thanksgiving. And, yes, POSITIVE! So I called and made an appt at my OB for the MOnday after the holiday to get it confirmed. The rest, is history.
