I just KNEW that something was wrong.  My only clue that I was pregnant was that my temperature was still high after I had some weird bleeding 4 DPO.  I took the test on a whim.  I've read and been told by midwives that that is actually a symptom of ectopic, not feeling pregnant or having a feeling that something is wrong.

So... did you?  Did you have all your usual pregnancy symptoms or did you not have anything?

I was really moody and tired.  I still had bleeding and no positive pregnancy tests at home.  I was not nauseaus at all, I had HORRIBLE morning sickness with Ella.  So, I felt like I was pregnant but kept getting told NO by the HPTs.  I didn't get it... until the day I wound up in the ER.

Yes, I felt pregnant.  I felt tired all the time and I started having food cravings very early.  I wasn't sick at all, (I was really sick with my son)  but like I said I was hungary a lot and tired a lot.   I would have a sharp stabbing pain on my right side every now and then that would go away as soon as it happened.  I kept telling myself it was just tendons stretching, but i knew better.  I had a feeling something was wrong,  we had been trying for a year and a half when i got pregnant and I couldnt get excited because i knew.  then one morning the stabbing pain woke me up and didnt go away so I went to the hospital.

Yes, I felt VERY pregnant even though I was on the Mirena IUD. I ignored it and was told that the Mirena would cause me to feel like that. I had Mirena for over a year with NO  bleeding for 8 months then out of no where I started spotting. That threw me off, my son was being extremely lovey, my sex drive was through the roof, and I wanted rootbeer first thing in the morning I could taste it lol. I had a really sharp pain in my right side then it went away then on a Monday 2 weeks later I had it again and I chalked it up to constipation.But I made my husband get me a test just to be sure and BFP I panicked because I knew it was an ectopic because I was on Mirena. Went on a Wed and Friday they confirmed it was in my right tube.

i just knew that i was pregnant with the last ectopic, i took 4 HPT before going to the DR & having blood work done to confirm it.  we did not know it was ectopic until my hubby called my OB and read him the numbers off of the discharge sheets from other blood work that had been done the night before from the hospital in hoboken, nj.  after an ultrasound & exam they told me i was fine & that my baby was fine.  as it turned out i was bleeding internally from the ectopic rupturing.  i had to have emergency surgery. that loss nearly destroyed my hubby & myself.  my sisters rushed 2 the hospital 2 be with me.  I STILL MISS THAT BABY as well as the others  EVERY DAY!!!  i have healed physically but not really emotionally from the losses of my 10 children.

The only symptom I had was a missed period but I still took the HPT.  It came back positive and I was so excited but in the back of my mind, I just felt like something was wrong.  I think I took a test or 2 like every day just because something did not feel right to me.  Then I started bleeding and found out that there was indeed something wrong.

I felt pregnant! I have always been super regular, every 28 days on the money. I tested late night of day 28 because I didn't have any period symptoms. My boods were sore and huge and I even got sick a couple times. I ahd a very light spotting and went to the doctor and they checked my levels and siad they were kind of low so I knew something was wrong, but then the next test my levels had shot up. Then came the irritating paiins on my right side. by the time it was discoved to be an ectopic I was 8 or 9 weeks and near bursting. I think I felt the symptoms because the baby had actually gotten a little bit into my uterus and then got stuck.

With my first ep I felt very sore bbs and had some brown spotting but thought that was normal.

With my 2nd ep, didnt feel much except a slight pain on one side going down leg. The pain progressed slowly so i wasnt sure something was definitely wrong like the first time, where the pain hit me one morning and it was unbearable right away.

I had every symptom in the book with my son.. you name it.. nausea, food aversion, missed period, strong sense of smell, moodiness.. etc.

With my ectopic baby I had a few symptoms (missed period, breast tenderness, frequent urination, tiredness, and nausea when the weather was too hot) BUT I noticed something that wasn't normal from last time.. my stomach felt very very tender. I knew something was wrong from the moment I took the test, and when I went in for my u/s at 9 weeks I had a sick feeling even before it began.

I felt pregnant and got a little baby bump too. Felt movement way to soon, that should have been a sign.

I had some symptoms but not as many as when I was preggo with DD or even when I had a chemical. I was hungry and tired, but I just felt something was wrong.
