What were your first signs of being pregnant? With my lo, i really just had a feeling that I was! Then came super sense of smell, loss of appetite, going off my prev fave foods along with tea and feeling queasy! No sore boobs, cramps that I can remember.
how about everyone else and how early?

Before my first pregnancy my cycles were all over the place and I never really knew when AF would arrive so I going it hard to know if I was 'late' just because or if it was because I was pregnant. I started noticing that I was getting bad headaches and quite bad road rage for some reason so for about a week I kept testing but they came back negative. I then tested again a few days later as we were due to fly long haul and I thought I'd better test before taking the malaria medication and lo and behold I was pregnant. I can't remember what CD I got that BFP.
This time around I was taking TTC a bit more seriously and had been using an OPK. I waited until I thought AF was a day late and then tested. I got my bad headaches again within a few days.

Like Weather Girl, my cycle has been all over the place so I never knew when I was ovulating etc. The first thing I noticed was feeling faint and dizzy but I have a history of that anyway so still didn't read much into it. As I'm still only 8 weeks, my symptoms are mainly bloating, constipation and really sore nipples.

Hot, rash, dizzy and sick! Plus tender nipples.

The only fairly early symptom I had was needing to go to the loo really regularly

Nothing really! Except for the fact that my boobs really hurt and my nipples went really big and dark (attractive!)

First bfp heartburn and boobs were in agony, 2nd nothing really, then 3 very early losses, 6th nothing too obvious but I found out at 3+2 so very early but tiredness started about 5/6 weeks and sickness at 7 weeks, 7th bfp breathlessness was what made me really think I could be preg.

My cycles were like clockwork so after 4 days of period pain but no period I tested. So no signs at all except for no period!

Noticed my boobs first, but folk here reminded me that could be my cycle. Headaches (one in particular was very bad) I put down to the weather. Nausea I decided was due to bad diet. Heartburn.... KNEW I was pregnant. :)

My cycles were all over the place. From about 4/5 weeks I felt I was coming down with a bug - sickly, tired, sore head. Did a few cheapy tests that shown nothing so left it a week or so - first clear blue was a dud but OH convinced me to test with the second et viola.
I was recovering from an operation & was on strong painkillers so kept putting it down to that but I just felt I needed to rule pregnancy out - after 2 yrs TTC & our first fertility app looming I never really thought it would happen without major assistance.

Really sore boobs with my 1st pregnancy & lack of spotting with the 2nd. I have regular cycles & had been TTC for 6 months before each bfp so I knew when I was pregnant
