BTDT Moms - Pg Symptoms

I thought it would help all the first timers if we listed the pregnancy symptoms we've experienced in the past, and how soon you were feeling them. 

For me, it was always the sore boobs.  That would be my first sign before any other symptoms set in, and they would start to hurt before AF was due.  Queasiness, tiredness, and cramping wouldn't start for about another week or so after testing.

With my DD I had the temp dip on my chart at 6DPO and on 7DPO I had spotting....I'm attributing that to implantation.  Other than that, without the +HPT, I swear I wouldn't have known I was PG until the baby started moving.

I know that isn't helpful to first timers, but it just goes to show everyone is different and a lack of signs isn't necessarily a bad thing.

For me the first sign was the awful migraines I got...and kept. I couldn't get rid of them. Next was definately being tired and then my super sonic sense of smell. Later came the aversion to foods based on smell. My boobs didn't get sore until much later. :smileyhappy:

With DD, my first symptom was a frequent urge to pee!  It started at 9 DPO.  I took a test at 10 DPO just because of that symptom, and it was  positive :smileyhappy:  I can't judge by sore boobs, mine are sore every month starting at about 6-7 DPO.
