Thanks! Can you remember when you started to feel any of those?

Well I now know from around 7 dpo!

I'm pretty boring as I had more symptoms the other months.
With M, I was feeling nauseous at 10dpo which is why I tested that afternoon.
This time, I had cramping when implantation occurred (though didn't realise I was that far through my cycle so ruled it out to something else). I only tested to rule out being pregnant before a dr appointment.
Hope you are all doing well and some symptom spotting turns into some bfps soon. x

I normally spot 2-3 days before af and with my two bfps i never spotted those cycles. Other than that i didn't feel different from any other month really until around 6 weeks when sickness/headaches started. Oh with the second bfp i did have achey legs actually in the second half of the tww but that could be coincidence i suppose!

I was actively trying both times, so symptom spotting like mad. However, for me I realised my pre AF symptoms were the same as pregnancy symptoms: sore boobs and cramping. What did happen both times was waking up and just feeling like I should test, even though AF wasn't late yet. Really weird like a compulsion, and faint bfp both times.

I had very sore boobs. Had gone 'off' food, even though I didn't feel ill or anything. My moods were all over the shop. I tested 2 days before af was due. Came back to update md's and they told me to do the next morning. I did that and lo and behold! BFP! Good luck

I had really really sore boobs. So I tested after they had been sore for 2-3 days. I got a very faint BFP but it was positive. Then all my symptoms stopped dead. Since then I've had period type pain and that is it but tests are still positive and getting stronger.

1st time - extreme bloating, nausea, clicking joints (a weird one!!), sore booobs
2nd time - slight nausea, clicking joints, sore boobs.
Nothing obvious really.

Thanks for sharing everyone :) Really interesting to read.
BF - I'm like you, get cramps and sore boobs from about 7-8dpo every month. Makes it more confusing I think!

On the run up to my first BFP I felt incredibly bloated from about the date of implantation. i also kept getting a weird greeny coloured odourless discharge on the run up too. other than that, i felt no different.

I can only remember a vague feeling of nausea when I opened a packet of cat food the night before I got my BFP. I had sore boobs and bleeding gums as early symptoms but not until after I'd got my BFP.

I had red spotting which didn't turn into AF at 10dpo and bad lower back pain. No other symptoms at all and my boobs always hurt like mad before AF so no change there.

Before my BFP I had swollen boobs, mild heartburn (massive giveaway), mild nausea and headaches from hell. I was sure I must be preggo but it was a while before the test showed it up.

Honestly I had no symptoms that I noticed until I did a test to hurry AF along as she was a bit late... As soon as I saw the line it dawned on me that I had been feeling sick (i put it down to a 40 min bus to work) that I had been tired (again put that down to work) and that smells had been quite a bit stronger than before, and as a chef that wasn't great!

I had tender boobs straight after ov, which hasn't stopped.
When I tried to go out for a run at 7dpo, I found I was exhausted about 1/4 distance and had to turn back.
I normally spot a few days before I came on, but I did neither.
My appetite decreased and I went off sweet things at 13dpo, which is VERY unlike me. Unfortunately this has continued!

Dizziness and constipation were the only symptoms I had prior to getting the positive but I had written them off as being unrelated to pregnancy. No other symptoms as yet but still early days for me!
