Am I crazy or imagining things or do these thing happen this early?

I am only about 6 weeks along but for the past 3 or so weeks I have been having heartburn off and on. For the past week I have had gas (for the most part burping, gross I know), I've been craving salty things, and also I have had to pee like crazy. I have read that they can be early symptoms of pregnancy but during my last two pregnancies I never had that. I had morning sickness from the beginning. I knew I was pregnant because of that before I ever took a test. I also craved sweet things from the beginning. So am I crazy, is it all in my head? Or does these things really happen so early in pregnancies?

  • I'm burping like crazy and peeing every 5 minutes. But I am also drinking more then I ever have in my life so its to be expected. and I think the drinking more and eating more smaller meals is somehow putting more air in my tummy and making me burp. I'm only 7 weeks and its been happening to me for a few weeks as well.

  • Hormones are to blame. If you are pregnant enough for a pee stick to detect a pregnancy, then there are enough hormones to cause these effects. Frequent urination is due to hormones as is cravings and heartburn. I have been told by others and experienced myself that these issues can clear up by second trimester and then come back in the third. Good luck, momma and congrats!

  • I sure hope its normal! Because with my 1st pregnancy I was only craving foods at around 4 months... and it was always sweets or shrimp!! Now this time... Im already craving spicy foods... and I have also had heartburn REALLY bad!! I think it is normal!! I haven't been burping... but I've been really gassy!! lol... hope everything else is going well!!

  • With my first pregnancy I had next to no symptoms until about week 6. With this one I have been nauseated since week 3.

  • This is my first pregnancy, but before I even knew I was pregnant I was having those symptoms. I had heartburn, gas, and peed a lot. I'm nine weeks and haven't had any cravings yet.

  • no no you're not crazy.. my husband will not let me do grocery shopping any more because I've been buying nothing but pickles and crackers and sweets, and I've been finding that all the food that I eat needs to be salted more but the sweets is not sweet enough for me! I know so gross, ha? but us pregos can't help it
