  • Missing my period was the first sign. I didn't get sore breasts or morning sickness or any of that until around 8 weeks.

  • My first clue was hunger. I was hungry all the time and just couldn't understand it. It must have started about 1 week past conception. I had a negative pregnancy test (taking Clomid and timing everything) for two weeks after that. In other words, 20 years ago my first positive test was 3 weeks past ovulation.

  • Sore and tender breasts. Like right before your period only way worse. and of course the missed period. I didnt really get morning sickness till about the 2nd month, With my second pregnancy, I felt like I got hit by a truck, I was soooo tired for the whole first trimester

  • Stuffy nose and randomly crying at something on the TV. No nausea, boobs were fine and didn't get bigger (wore the same bras) until my milk came in postpartum, and my period was totally wacky anyway. I didn't have any typical symptoms whatsoever and only tested because I had a dentist appointment and figured I should check before getting shot up with drugs.

  • A "Late" period was the first sign.
    Test up to five days before your missed period.
    First symptoms after I found out were exaustion and nausea.
