What are your "favorite" early pg...

What are your "favorite" early pg symptoms? For example, I am 4dpo. I know it's too early to be having symptoms. However, for the past 2 nights, I've not slept well and then got up at 5:00, ON THE WEEKEND! Then, last night, I had trouble going to sleep even though I woke up an hour earlier than usual. Also, I had a bad case of acid reflux which I usually get when pg, however, later in pg like 2nd trimester. Also, and this is the one that is really bothering me. I'm hungry all the time. I suppose that could just be pms though, right? However, I don't usually get as hungry as I've been the last couple of days, since Friday. TIA! Jacqui

Oh, Jacqui, I love you for posting this!!! I am at what, 5 dpo? and I am having quite a few symptoms myself. I know it's crazy, but I suffer from occasional panic attacks and the last time I had a major one was when I was pg last time at about 7dpo. I know because I keep a journal. It's quite useful as a reference at times! Anyway, Friday night I was out with some friends and had a really bad panic attack. So of course I'm thinking this is "the month." I also swear that I already have sore bb's and tiredness. The tiredness I'm blaming on really horrible seasonal allergies, but who knows! When I was pg with my daughter, I was horribly tired and dizzy at about 5-d dpo. Glad I'm not the only one who is obsessed with every little symptom! I am wishing you TONS of good luck this month!

The symptoms that I had last time were...hmmm...I can't remember which came first...

1) incredibly sore BB's...I mean throbbing, pulsating, heat radiating, perky bb's that hurt when I laid on my stomach!! I noticed that about 2 weeks before I suspected that I "might" be pg... 2) then there was this terrible indigestion... usually at night... I actually had to sleep sitting up a few times... during the day it was a feeling of being really full after eating the smallest portion of anything... and also the feeling that the food didn't seem to want to go down all the way... that too was way before I started to suspect anything. I read that the hormone released from the placenta right after implantation causes the muscles to relax so that the uterus will begin to expand...those hormones also cause your esophagus to relax which causes the heartburn or indigestion that is associated with early pregnancy... I'll be paying close attention to the signals now that it all seems to make sense. GLTY!! Julie

Right back atcha, Anna! I'm glad to have this board to ask the really ridiculous questions. I suffer from a panic disorder but I seem to have it under control. I hope your attacks stop, they are NO fun! I'm exhausted right now but only because of the getting up early this weekend with no nap, haha! Don't think I can chalk that up to pg. Wish I could. Here's to bfps all around! Love, Jacqui

So maybe the acid reflux really COULD be a sign?! We'll see! 10 more days! Thanks! Jacqui

I'm 10dpo and I have been waking up really early or in the middle of the night for the past three days. Which I did with both my children. That's the big one that's making my think I'm pg. I'm dizzy a lot, and I'm starving. Three people asked me yesterday if I'm losing weight, but I actually gained two pounds since last week (eek!). When I was pg with my last son, my legs and face got thinner. And last but not least, I got two new little moles on the back of neck. I got a new little mole on the back of my neck with each pregnancy. (Isn't that weird??) So of course I'm obsessing about all these pg symptoms. This HAS to be the month!!

Sounds just like me! ;)

I am (roughly -> I don't chart, but I am very regular and am now 4 days late!) 17dpo and have had the same exact symptoms, PLUS a lot of thin, clear CM, (abnormal for me if AF is coming) and weirdest, my AF symptoms came and went. As in, I was bloated feeling and pretty cranky, and then it just sort of faded...weird!

I am waiting until AF is 10 days late to test (If I CAN wait that long!)

Good Luck to you!

I can't believe you're waiting that long! I could never do it. I'm 11 dpo, and thinking about testing today! I don't know if I can wait that long for you to test. (I'm sooo nosey)Good Luck!!

First month of TTC for me. 8 dpo and I have all sorts of IPS. I haven't slept good for the last two nights. I have constipation. No real increase in hunger but I seem to be drinking a lot more water. No sore BB's so I can't decide if it is all in my head or not. These are some of the same symptoms that showed up first the last two times I got pg. Can I test yet? grin
