    First symptoms of pregnancy

    Everyone can experience different symptoms when they first fall pregnant. What were the first signs of pregnancy for you?

    A blood test that was positive for Pregnancy - all the urine ones were negative, but, in hindsight, they were done too early.

    When I think back to how I felt before the positive result, I had tender boobs and really felt like af was on the way!

    My symptoms were the same as Kelli, I had sore/tender breasts and was feeling very pre-menstrual - so I think that was another component of the surprise! I also had a few pimples (which I thought was eczema) on my chin. I NEVER get pimples! I asked the doctor to prescribe me some eczema cream and he said it was more like a bit of pregnancy induced acne and how much more convincing did I need that I was pregnant? LMAO!

    My nipples were EXTREMELY sensitive and were like flashing beacons (sp?) !

    And I was starting to get nauseas.

    I had 2 bloodtests and 4 urine tests before it actually showed up positive on the last bloodtest LOL!

    First time around. I was tired and extremely dizzy all the time before the HPT turned positive. I put that down to (well dizzy bit anyway) very low iron levels. Had no idea about pre natal vitamins then lol.

    This time around, still waiting to find out. HPT has been negative and get crampy feelings like AF is around the corner but no sign yet and 2 days late.

    Love

    Hi all

    The first time I was PG there were no symptoms at all, apart from the sides of my boobs ached. I had had a really nasty infection that cycle, so was fully expecting my cycle to be out of whack. Plus DH and I had both been away with work, separately and in different states, around my normal O time, so I fully didn't expect to be PG. A week after AF was due DH nagged me into doing a HPT........and it was positive. It took about a week after that to start feeling nauseous.

    However, now that I am PG again (I am so excited to be able to write that!) my symptoms are:

    • Sore boobs
      Constipation
      Mega Nausea
      Hunger
      Knackered: really really tired mid mornings
      Very high temps (much higher than usual post O temps)
      Creamy brown pinky mucus spotting on about 10 DPO


    DH keeps worrying that I am really sick.........but.......bring it on I say! I am just so glad to be PG again, I don't care how crap I feel!

    I was extremely tired and headachey... I would take my lunch break at work and just fall asleep out the back or in the library!
    My emotions were also completely haywire, I remember having a few mini out-of-control breakdowns...
    I also felt H-O-T!!!

    I fell pregnant by surprise with Marisa, so I wasn't really looking out for signs, but it all started with an emotional outburst at work (I quit!) and for the rest of the day (poor woman in the carpark). After that day, I saw the doc and I was 5 weeks when that happened. Then I remember being really tired and as the days went on, morning sickness crept in...

    With the second, I was trying and I noticed I had heartburn, which I only had when pregnant last time, so I knew! I was lucky not to get any other symptoms, just felt like my body was normal, which freaked me out! Morning sickness until around week 11 (weird!) and it lasted a couple of weeks.

    With this pregnancy, I didn't notice ANY symptoms at first. I think I was close to 3 months when I started getting the sore breasts, tiredness and all that.

    However, with my first pregnancy, between 1 and 2 weeks after conception I had an extreme unexplained emotional swing; became very tearful for no apparent reason. This didn't last longer than a day, and I couldn't work out the cause of it. When I found out I was pregnant, it was a relief to realise it was probably the hormonal flow causing this emotional upheaval.

    Mine were creamy cm straight after ovulation, '*lumpy* breasts, mood swings (poor DP!), feeling hungry all the time (although this didn't last), and no dip in temps. O

    I got extremely sore breasts at about 4-5 weeks pregnant. At first I thought it was just a sign I was about to get my period. Which, obviously, didn't show up. Penny dropped about 3 days later.

    The sore boobs were really my only big sign at first.
