How long into your pregnancy before you started feeling the symptoms? Morning sickness, fatigue, sore breast, growing pains?

I have been through pregnancy twice but I just don't remember really when the symptoms started.

  • 4-5 weeks.. just didn't know I was pregnant until about 6 weeks and finally all my crazy aches/sickness made sense.

  • With my first, I was having morning sickness before my period was even due. I thought I was just getting the flu, until I missed my period. With my second, I didnt get morning sickness, but I got dizzy a lot. I think that started sometime in the second month.

  • i'd say 5-7 weeks. i found out at 5 weeks, and my boobs had already been hurting a week prior to the preg test. then i got morning sickness around 7 weeks, which lasted until 16 weeks. dear lord, it was awful!!!

  • It really varies. There are as many variations as there are women.

    I never had morning sickness and I'm 35 weeks.
    My growing pains were mild and happend wheny my particular body shape and uterus size started pushing on my ribs (halfway through the second trimester).
    My breasts are ALWAYS sore right after ovulation, this time they just didn't shrink and got really huge.
    Fatigue...progesterone makes me drowsy even just a period. So I've experienced drowsiness some days and not others. If I over exert I'm fatigued. If it is too hot i'm fatigued. If the baby has just gone through a growth spurt, I'm fatigued. And then I have days of energy. I liken it to when I was jogging (a beginner). The same things happened (except instead of the growth spurt it was when I added time or length to the jog). It's just the extra exertion that I'm not used to.
