  • What are yours? Cause as of right now I'm having bloating, gas, food aversions, breast tenderness, and sometimes I feel like throwing up. But I haven't taken a pregnancy test to find out if I'm pregnant cause it's too early.

  • Sweet baby Jesus. I was just Googling...well, HAVE BEEN Googling this for a few hours now. It all depends on the woman. Some women "just know" like I did with my daughter- I was only a WEEK pregnant with our *special surprise* when I knew it. Tested positive on Super Bowl Sunday 2009 just two weeks after ovulation and I actually calculated my exact due date-DD birthday. I won't go into all the details of how I knew since there were MANY things that made that lightbulb go off for me.

    From research and chatting with our landlord(my obgyn, coincidentally), TRUE symptoms can start as early as 6-8 days after ovulation. Cramps, bloating, headaches, back aches, exhaustion.....REAL no other "exhaustion" I've ever felt, thats for sure. Most of the extra trips to the potty and nausea don't occur until 6 weeks or so-from what I've read. But there's no better early test than our intuition...unless it drives you nuts

  • Thank you for the input! I also have been googling and all I have come up with is that its different with everyone! I dont feel nauseous I just feel different and its 4 dpo and im experiencing lower abdominal cramping which is extremely strange for me, I absolutely NEVER have cramps the only other time I experienced them was when pregnant for my son! So I guess we will just have to wait and see unfortuately I suck at waiting haha
