  • Physical changes, I noticed about 7-weeks into pregnancy (tender and swollen breasts). I got a belly pretty early because I had horrible all-day long morning sickness and the only thing that I could keep down was really salty carbs like fries and chips! But, it wasn't until the last few weeks of my pregnancy that my ankles and face became a bit puffy and swollen.

  • yes there are many changes during pregnancy i noticed early on around 6wks sore and swollen breast, darker nipples, more vaginal discharge. later on you notice a baby bump stretch marks if you arnt so lucky to not get them, a dark line going down the middle of your belly sometimes some swelling of face and ankles later on, lots of changes its all worth it in the end.

  • I found out I was pregnant at 6 wks, and my boobs grew an entire cup that week. Also I was bloated my entire first trimester, so I already looked a little pregnant, lol! Oh and about 2 wks before I found out I was pregnant I broke out really bad (I've always had really good skin) and have yet to get rid of it all...yuck...

  • My early pregnancy symptoms are increased appetite and exhaustion. My breasts never get swollen- and morning sickness is just annoying neausa for me but that didn't even start til I was past 8 weeks preg. Everyone is different- some people don't even get 1 symptom- if you think your pregnant take a test & see an obgyn : )

  • My DH notices a change in my moods. I get happy one minute and am crying the next... I am so lucky to have a man who is so in tune to what goes on here at home! I also get soreness in my breasts and get horrible morning sickness almost right away....
