  • The biggest things for me with both pregnancies were:

    1) My boobs hurt like a mother.

    2) My senses of smell/taste went completely out of whack. For example, two random things I love are broccoli and Diet Coke. When I'm pregnant, they both taste TOTALLY different and lose all appeal! And though I'm usually a candle/air freshener person, when I'm preggo my sense of smell is waaay too sensitive and those things start to give me headaches.

    When either of those things happens, I get suspicious that I'm knocked up! Haha

  • the first 2 we'd ttc for so long that I knew the day my periods were late.

    but #3 was a surprise. I was sick, gaining weight, craved (I would KILL) for onion rings...until I looked back after learning I was pregnant it all made total sense. but it was over christmas - I had the flu, and was getting fat. lol didn't have a cycle because of ovarian tumours and 2 medications and BCpill failing. lol

  • Well, to be honest I just had a feeling I was, which I hear is pretty common. Then I missed my period and had a little spotting. I started becoming very emotional at times. Soon after, I took a HPT and found out I was pregnant. Now I am 6 weeks pregnant and my sense of smell has become extremely sensitive and i get hungry often and full easily. I have also been tired for quite a while now and have to fit a nap into my schedule every day. Hope I helped!

  • With my first pregancy i had no symptoms at all and found out thru a pregnancy test. with my current pregnancy(17 Weeks along) I was camping for my birthday and out of no where i started throwing up like mad in the middle of the night, my SO and I both looked at eachother and agreed that i needed to test as soon as we got back from our camping trip so i did and i got a big fat positive!

  • I was testing incessantly, so the first clue was my test. I had some nausea and fatigue right away, and my senses were heightened. I also had no appetite, and almost everything made me queasy.

  • With my 1st raw meat smelled rotten! With my 3rd I went to bed at 7:30 for three nights in a row I was SO tired. I don't know if it was anything specific with my 2nd and 4th, just a general feeling.

  • I peed on a stick and a pink line appeared. LOL. I was actively trying and testing at 11 DPO. =P

  • My neck turned black, like I had not showered in months.

  • This is my first pregnancy!
    Umm... right now, I'm around four or five weeks, I think.
    I'm nauseous but not vomiting, I won't let my SO touch my boobs anymore b/c they hurt like a mofo, (haven't tried the shower yet, wonder how that'll be- *grimace*) have mild cravings, cramping, & really tired half the time. Not to mention I can pick up smells really easily now, which is a major pain in the butt- with that comes the nausea and headaches. ouch.

    I think that just about covers it. Oh, and mood swings.
    And I've woken up twice a day to use the bathroom. Joy.

  • I didn't really have any symptoms before I took the test. I just had a feeling that I was. But I waited utnil I was about 3 days late (holding out hope lol) and took the test. A few weeks after that I started feeling sick and tired.
