  • With my son I had bumps on my feet that itched but weren't bug bites. I didn't know what to make of them. I found out I was pregnant shortly after they showed up. With my daughter I got the same exact bumps. I took a test and sure enough I was pregnant. Both pregnancies were the only time I got those. I haven't met anyone yet who had the same symptom. lol

  • I pretty much only had symptoms that made me think it was PMS, like sore boobs and a little cramping and mild fatigue. I missed my period. Then I took four tests, all four were positive.

  • I slept really good. I slept more hours than the usual. Like up to 12 hours.
    I missed my period.

  • The symptoms I had were that all of a sudden I started craving slurpees, I had really sore boobs, cramping, and was PMSing. I thought it was my period but something in the back of my mind kept on telling me it wasn't. I then told my husband we needed to go buy a pregnancy test and he asked me if this time I was sure that it just wasn't another pregnancy scare and I told him that I was for sure. We went to Walmart and bought a pregnancy test. The weird thing is that when we got to the cashier she told me, "Congratulations on your pregnancy!" I was like, "What?!? I haven't even taken the test!" An hour later I took it and I was pregnant!

  • I just knew I was prego. Aside from that, my first symptoms were extreme fatigue and (sorry TMI)diarrhea...I had morning sickness from the other end with both my pregnancies!
