  • symptoms don't usually start until well after the missed period. My earliest symptom was a food aversion. I just couldn't eat meat no matter how hard I tried.

  • I'm almost 6 weeks preggo right now, but 5 days after concieving my boobs started hurting really bad...15 days after conceiving my ligaments started pulling and I was crampy. The naseous feeling started at about day 20 and they havn't let up since. My cycle is 40 days long so I tested when I was technically 4 weeks pregnant and finally got a positive.

  • with my first pregnancy, my stomach hurt so bad. I finally went to the ER and found out I was actually less than one week....birth control was fighting the baby. With this pregnancy, my breasts got very sore and bigger, I was sick as a dog and tired, then finally missed my period.

  • 1 week to 2 weeks before I got a positive pregnancy test. I would wake up with a stuffy nose. That's how I knew. It's happened since my first pregnancy and I'm now in my third and it's been like that ever since. So I kinda knew I was just waiting to miss my period to actually take a test and sure enough it came back positive and I crave chocolate too liek a week before.

  • Before i missed my period I had HORRIBLE mood swings. My hubby & I went out & i was so excited to be going but it seemed like i was just so bitchy(excuse my lang.). I couldnt stand myself i was so moody. The next day I took a HPT because that just wasnt like me & what do you know, I was pregnant. The test showed up + a day before my expected period.

  • I had to be around 3 or 4 weeks pregnant and I came home around 4:00 and I did not wake up until that next morning around 9:00.

  • I had a strange symptom-- I have a small mole on my face. With all three of my pregnancies, in the first trimester, that thing swelled, got red, and very tender. The doctor said it was because of the hormonal changes (kind of like acne in a pubescent teen). We had been TTTC our last daughter, and before I had positive test result, that happened. We got so excited because we just knew that had to mean I was! And guess what, I was!
