What were your pregnancy symptoms and how soon did they start?

Hello, I wanted to hear some of your stories regarding how soon you experienced your first pregnancy symptoms. I did not experience much with my first child other than having to pee often. I actually did a pregnancy test 3 days before my AF was due because I couln?t believe how often I had gotten up to pee during the night. What about you? How soon were your symptons and what were they? I still have 1 week left before I can test for pregnancy? Thanks for sharing!

With all it was missed period. Then morning sickness came at about 8-10 weeks for my first three. After that the constant peeing started along with exhaustion, consitpation and gas. I did with this one have cramping at around 6 weeks pregnant. Now with this last one we were TTC for 15 months. About a week after love I had this feeling and looked at my husband and said ?It worked this time? he thought I was nuts. I was at the clinic for my daughter on the day AF was due and did a test just for the heck of it?.it came up positive. I wasnt surprised lol Most pregnancdy symptoms do not occur until 6-8 weeks pregnant other than missed period. I wouldnt advice testing before AF is due because you can get an early positive that could be froma chemical pregnancy. Wait and be patient then test after you miss.

I have a scale that not only measures fat but water as well. I noticed that I was starting to retain alot of water, and 2 days later I had what seemed to be an unusual amount of saliva. Soon after (like a few more days) I started to feel sick and achy all over. At this point I hadn't even missed my cycle. I decided to go out and buy both regular and digital tests. The regular one only showed 1 dark line, and the other I had to really look for like a ghost line. I thought it was just my imagination, so I waited until the next morning to take the other regular test with my first morning urine. But same thing, only this time, the other line was more like a shadow. The next day (which now would've been 5 days before my missed period) I decided to take the digital, and it read clear as day, PREGNANT! I called my doc took another urine test and also a blood test. They called that night to tell me congratulations. I was still 3 days before my missed period. I was literally only 3 weeks along. Now I am 37 weeks. It was a great thing to find out so early, but it has made for a super long pregnancy. LOL!

isichamp ! When it happens, Although you may experience typical signs and symptoms of pregnancy, the following symptoms may be used to help recognize a potential ectopic pregnancy: * Sharp or stabbing pain that may come and go and vary in intensity. The pain may be in the pelvis, abdomen or even the shoulder and neck (due to blood from a ruptured ectopic pregnancy gathering up under the diaphragm). * Vaginal bleeding, heavier or lighter than your normal period * Gastrointestinal symptoms * Weakness, dizziness, or fainting It is important for you to seek emergency care if you are experiencing sharp pain or have bleeding. Ectopic pregnancies are diagnosed by your physician, who will probably first perform a pelvic exam to locate pain, tenderness or a mass in the abdomen. Your physician will also use an ultrasound to determine whether the uterus contains a developing fetus. The measurement of hCG levels is also important. An hCG level that is lower than what would be expected is one reason to suspect an ectopic pregnancy. Low levels of progesterone may also indicate that a pregnancy is abnormal. Your physician may do a culdocentesis, which is a procedure that involves inserting a needle into the space at the very top of the vagina, behind the uterus and in front of the rectum. The presence of blood in this area may indicate bleeding from a ruptured fallopian tube.

First of all, congratulations to you... ;-) I am happy for you as I know it is not easy to get pregnant, not to mention this is your 2nd baby you are expecting. We, too are also having problem determining the symptoms of pregnancy even though we have 3 kids. We read many books, resources, going to doctors and finally gathered our findings to 3 very important symptoms to see whether you are pregnant or not. Let me share it with you... #1 Of course, missing your period is one of the symptoms, if your menstrual cycle normally occurs regularly. However there are some women experience bleeding or spotting around the time of expected period. It happens when the fertilized egg attaches to the uterine wall and is referred to as implantation bleeding. During pregnancy the bleeding is lighter and shorter. Missed period is not a confirmation that you are pregnant as it can also happen because of the condition of emotional and physical. #2 Are you having nausea / morning sickness? If yes, it can be another common sign of pregnancy. It will show up 2 - 8 week after conception and can be happen anytime (day or night). In most women, nausea and vomiting begin to subside by the second trimester of pregnancy. In early pregnancy elevation of estrogen occurs it is to slow the emptying of the stomach and may be related to the development of nausea. #3 Are your breast tender? It is usually similar to the sensation before menstrual period. Many women feel that their breasts are fuller and tender with their nipples being more sensitive during early pregnancy. For pregnant women it may begin as early 1 - 2 weeks after conception. The color around your nipple will get darker and feeling of heaviness or fullness in the breasts. It is due to breast are preparing for breastfeeding. Definitely, it is better to consult with your doctor with the changes of your body. Pregnancy is not the same like your normal life as more things need to be aware. With that, I hope these information is relevant to see whether you are pregnant or not. It is rather important to go to your doctor in conjunction in understanding these symptoms. This is just my humble opinion....................

The day before I was due on, I was convinced I wasn't pregnant because I really thought I was about to come on. I didn't. I did a test the next day. I was pregnant. So maybe its too early to experience any symptoms yet.
