what were your "symptoms" of pregnancy?

Just curious if you knew before you tested, if you got a neg and knew you were pregnant or even if you just found out... what were you experiencing? i ask because it may be different. each pregnancy is different...

  • With my first I just knew. I was only 2 weeks pregnant, 19 yrs old, but I just knew.
    With my 2nd I knew because the smell of cigarette smoke make me sick to my stomach. I had horrible morning sickness with him.
    With my 3rd I didn't know for a few months. I can't remember what tipped me off.

  • I knew before I tested. This is my 5th pregnancy, so I'm very in tune with my body, especially, during pregnancy. I always have the slightest bit of nausea very early and swollen breasts that feel like electricity is shooting through them.

  • My period stopped and I started throwing up until I saw god after a couple days I went to the doctor and found out I was pregnant it made me happy SO not so. Okay not the throwing up which lasted until I was seven months pregnant.

  • My symptom was ALWAYS HUNGRY! ... I didnt know i was pregnant until i was about 3/4mo along (irregular periods, so skipping is nothing new)... the only time i got nausea was because of nerves going to my first Dr. apt. lol..
    Another sign should have been my smoking habits - I usually would smoke 1/2 pack a day... When I got preg. Even having 2-3 a day made me feel like I smoked a pack (i quit the day i took the PT though).
    Tired! Tired! Tired! before taking the PT i could barely function some days cause i was so tired.. I couldnt even manage laundry. lol..
