    Pregnancy Symptoms By Week! Please Contribute!

    Hey everyone!

    I'm looking for help from pregnant BellyBelly members for a BIG project - I would love to know how many weeks you are and what pregnancy symptoms you are experiencing I'm going to collate it for an article showing how different our pregnancies are! If you would like to, edit your post each week with an update of symptoms.

    For example:

    Week 6 - Nausea, Exhaustion
    Week 7 - Nausea, Exhaustion, Feet Sore

    That would be awesome. Thank you

    Week 4 - heartburn, frequent trips to the loo (mainly in the morning), constipation & occasional backache

    Week 5 - so tired! Constipation, sore boobs, waking up hot & sweaty at night.

    Week 6 - sore tingly nipples, what is with that? Anxiety, crying. Sensitive to different smells. Still constipated

    Constipation last up til week 13 then eased. Sensitive to smells disappeared around 9 weeks. My boobs deflated & are less sensitive (except for my nipples) around 10 weeks.

    Am now 15 +1 & I've been getting the occasional gum bleed when brushing my teeth, broken sleep as I cannot stay comfortable (have just started sleeping with a cushion between my legs & behind my back) My waist has disappeared & I'm running out of clothes that sit nice. The tiredness has returned. And if I over do it I pay for it with a lot of stretching & pulling in my tummy & sharp pain near my right hip. Oh & I'm finding it difficult being around a lot of people at once, my lack of energy is making me increasingly introverted.

    I swear for me all my symptoms start the moment after conception
    cramps were first. then sore boobs, and within days the nausea would hit and welcome the morning sickness. Sensitivity to foods, drinks and smells. Extreme tiredness. That lasted from the beginning to week 20.
    Round week 5 theres the frequent trips to the loo, almost gastro like symptoms. This lasts til after week 14.
    Heartburn hit round the 22-25week mark.
    week 30 leg cramps would kick in

    Around 14w, I always seem to have a fainting spell, specifically in a supermarket :-/ The supermarket part isn't really a symptom, I suppose, but the lightheadedness/fainting is... But I'm still going to be avoiding supermarkets for a couple of weeks
