  • umm sick...possibley cramp like pains because your uterus is expanding. But not a whole lot. Mood swings. It all depends on you.

  • I think every pregnancy is different, so you will feel things at different stages. With my first pregnancy (which I remember better then my second, weirdly enough) I felt symptoms by 6 weeks. I was going through morning sickness, I felt REALLY tired all the time. My boobs were really sore. A little farther on in my first trimester I started getting heartburn and bloody gums. But I think my earliest symptoms were sore breasts and extreme fatigue...

  • You could be feeling like you did before you conceived. Not much at all. Don't sweat not feeling nauseous or tired. Your boobs don't necessarily hurt. They might, but it's not an absolute. The hormone levels might be too low yet to have your body react. Just wait, it all may change next week!

  • yup just morning sickness possibly over tired but thats about it..other symptoms kick in around the end of the first trimester/begining of the second..get what to expect when you are expecting or mayo clinic guide to a healthy pregnancy. they both do a week by week run down of symptoms and babies devolopment. they also have good guides on breast vs bottle etc...for you to get some good info to start making decisions on those kinds of things

  • Every woman is different when it comes to pregnancy girl! In general...maybe...Morning sickness ( nausea &/or vomiting morning,noon or night LOL ), Swollen tender breasts &/or nipples, darker areola, increase in discharge, mild-moderate stages of cramping ( due to stretching of uterus/ligaments/etc ), flatulence, increase or decrease in appetite, loss of energy/overtired, mood swings/emotional, Etc. I take it this is your first? I just had my first child 7.5mos ago & the book "What to expect when your expecting" was really a supportive tool throughout my pregnancy...a quick reference to questions/concerns you may have when a doctor is not available & you just cant wait! LOL. Now im reading "What to expect in the toddler years" & its another great book for quick thorough answers to your concerns. good luck! congrats!

  • I found out I was pregnant at 7 1/2 weeks. I had NO pregnancy symptoms. I did have really bad cramps like my period was coming (why I found out so late) but yes every pregnancy is different. My only symptom=really bad cramps :)
