How do you know the difference in symptoms?

If you are pregnant, are the symptoms the same as your menstral cycle, more extreme? What are the odds that women can tell if they have symptoms more or less than only 2 weeks of concieving??

  • I think some women can, but I'm not one of them! I've had six kids and could not have told you I was pregnant without a positive test, and that was 5 to 6 weeks along AT LEAST and even then it was hard to believe. :D

  • The main thing you should look out for is a positive pregnancy test!

  • I had cramping very very similar to AF and SUPER sore boobs.. Some of the cramping was slightly different and one left or right side. Just got BFP on Friday :)

  • I have had "scares" before and just had AF symptoms. But when I became pregnant (2nd time) I didn't feel like I was going to start. I was actually a week or so late when i realized I was late. And also...BIG boobs HURT. They weren't sore they just hurt so bad. And all the other times I thought I was pregnant...I didn't have that. I also just felt weird...not normal.

  • OH and the first time. I had every symptom in the book. I thought I started but it was implantation bleeding and stopped int he middle of the day. I looked it up and was like OH CRAP. So 2 days later I took a test and it was positive. But before I took it, I was eating like mad crazy. That was my indicator. Oh and I was emotional.

  • i would never have known i was pregnant. since i've taken bc my periods have always been off missing my period up to 3 weeks doesnt mean anything for me. i found out because i got out of the shower and my son's father was standing there and he looked at me and was like "whoa"..he grabbed my boobs and said .."you're pregnant"..i didnt believe it. he said because my nipples LOOKED darker he thought i was pregnant..because thats how his ex wifes looked. so i went and bought a test and i was. i didnt start feeling any symptoms or anything till about 8wks later.

  • i didn't know without a test. i found out at 6.5 weeks. morning sickness kicked in at seven weeks. maybe i would have figured it out by then lol. but up until week seven i felt 100% the same

  • Dh and I had been ttc for almost a year and I had warm cramps, like I was going to start but as if it was congested (if that makes any sense). I wasn't nauseas and my boobs didn't hurt any more than normal. I did notice I was so hungry all the time and really tired. In retrospect, my pee stopped being bright yellow in the morning from prenatals...I suppose I started using all those vitamins!
