  • I don't know about your stomach getting hard so early in pregnancy. *shrugs* It was hard to tell with me, simply because early pregnancy symptoms and my pre-period symptoms were always very similar. I can't tell you HOW many pregnancy tests I wasted because I was so anxious to be pregnant and didn't wait until I was officially "late" to test. Good luck!

  • Honestly - nothing! I just had a feeling with both of my pregnancies. I've never had early pregnancy symptoms (or many in pregnancy at all lol - I'm lucky!) but something in me just said "You are SO pregnant"

  • I was just extremely tired and didn't feel well. I thought it was because I was really stressed at work and I was not eating very well. But when I started throwing up in the morning, I knew I must be and the pregnancy tests confirmed it.

  • My stomach felt really strange. I had cramps like I was going to start my period and gas. I also had very slight waves of nausea. I would just get a little feeling that I had to throw up, but I never would. I usually have a very strong stomach, so I knew something was weird. I would say the biggest signs for me were the gas and the crampy feeling. It wasn't what I thought I'd feel like and I had absolutely no breast tenderness, exhaustion or smell aversions.

  • I was craving salads and pickles. I hadn't craved that since I was pregnant with my daughter. Plus, I had morning sickness, tiredness, and having to go to the bathroom every 30 minutes.

  • I only had one obvious sign because I found out I was pregnant almost immediatly.I was driving to check out an new with my hubby and before we got there I started getting hungry and I thought to myself ok I will wait til after we got finished looking at cars.Well it was only a 10 minute drive and when I got there I started balling my eyes out because I was so hungry and I have never been like that before..I could wait for 2 hours to eat and I would be great.It worked out perfect because we were trying to have a baby and I wanted to be pregnant before my birthday and we found out I was.
