What were the first signs you noticed before you found out u were pregnant?

Did anyone have a light period/ bleeding before you knew you were pregnant? what were your first signs and how far along were you when you found out you were pregnant? I'm sure you guys get this question every single day but every pregnancy/woman is different and id just like to compare some of your experiences to my situation at the momment :-)

  • The first time, I didn't know for 7 weeks. I leaned against the counter when cooking something and my abdomen hurt when I did so and thought it was weird. I had to pee like every 30 minutes, too.

    With my son, I had the pee issue, but was really tired and my nipples hurt like all hell. Not my breasts at all, but through the whole pregnancy, my nipples killed.

  • First sign was a late period, followed by having to pee more often.

  • With DD I had IUI, so I was more concerned about it and I was not sure if the pains I had were related to pregnancy or the IUI. With DS, DD had been sick and doc said a stomach flu was going around, I started feeling funny in my stomach area and when DD got better and I didn't I had a blood test done. Pee stick tests have never been good for me(got a positive when not pregnant and a negative when pregnant). I was about 9 weeks, my period has never been regular so I never thought about it not happening(it had been almost three months since my period).

  • In retrospect, the first signs I should have noticed was a craving for Sonic mozzarella sticks at 9 in the morning and that nothing fit anymore. I thought that I was just tired because I'd just come through my nursing preceptorship and that I was late because of stress from final exams and graduation. Nope, it was all Mr. Stork's doing it seems...
