How early did you experience pregnancy symptoms?

It's still kinda early in the month (right around ovulation time), and I can't imagine that I'd actually be getting any symptoms yet. But this is the 4th morning in a row that I've been mildly nauseous for absolutely no reason, and I've just felt kinda drained even after a good night sleep. This is very unusual for me, so it started me thinking about it. So I'm curious to see how soon other people started feeling anything.

  • Very early. For my first baby, I had morning sickness within the first week. For the second, a little queasiness by the first few weeks, tenderness, expanding waistline in about a month and a half.

  • I had constipation the week before I missed my period. Constipation is always a big sign for me.

  • My first - no symptoms at all... I didn't know I was pregnant until I was almost into my 2nd trimester.

    My second - week 3 my bb's started getting huge and hard, by week 4 they were so tender to the touch that I could hardly wear a bra. And then nausea kicked in at week 5.

  • Within the first week. I'd been having symptoms for a week and a half before i found out...and i was 3 weeks 5 days. And that's by last period.

  • FYI: Morning sickness doesn't usually show up until week 6. (And it did for me like clockwork.) So you're probably just fighting off some stomach bug.

  • See I thought it was a stomach bug, but every time I'm sick (weather it's a minor cold or major illness) I will experience vertigo, and I don't fee that at all. It's possible I'm just stressed to the point of nausea, which is pretty likely. But like I said I can't imagine I'd actually be feeling it yet, but it got me curious.

  • I started having symptoms within a week or week and a half after conception. I knew I was pregnant within a couple of days, but after getting a bunch of negative tests for almost a month, I thought I wasn't. Ultrasounds and her DOB proved I was right, though, just didn't get the BFP til I was about a month.

  • I didn't know I was pregnant until I was just over 2 months along but looking back, I do remember having very tender breasts and nipples in February (which would've only been 2-3 weeks into my pregnancy!) and very fatigued by 3 weeks as well!
