  • At 4 weeks I started cramping horribly...thought I had a UTI since it burned when I peed, it quit after 2 days and I started getting cramps but not like a period.

  • i was put on progesterone in August of 09 and found out on Christmas that I was pregnant. I had been TTC for 3 years. When I had my first ultrasound on December 31st it said I was 6 weeks. Now that I look back I started having morning sickness the first week of December and it just got worse after that. I never even thought I was pregnant but now getting ready to have this little guy anyday :) GL!

  • When we started trying, I kept track of my fertile week. We "practiced" every night for that week just to be sure it took! :-) Within a week, I was having the implantation cramping and nausea. Sore breasts were soon to follow.

  • My breast were swollen and "electrical" 6 days before I missed my period...I knew then. I took the test 5 days before my missed period and got a very fast positive.

  • With my first, the only early symptoms I had were extreme fatigue and some mild food aversion, and those about a week after conception. Not enough to make me connect the dots until I got the positive test. Other than that, no symptoms until I started being hungry all the time sometime in the second trimester.

    With my second, I had just about every symptom in the book starting at a week after conception.
