Noticably symptomatic

When did you start to notice unmistakable symptoms? I'm only 4 1/2 weeks and really haven't had any symptoms yet. I hope this is normal?

I am about 4 weeks and 2 days. I found out at 10dpo I was pregnant. At first I didn't feel too much, but the last few days I have had AF like cramping, my boobs have been sore since I ovulated and I have had headaches and nausea, but mostly at night. It feels identical to a slight hangover.

By 5 days DPO at implantation.  I was very crampy.  Much like I was with my other children.  I've been exhausted and nauseous every since.  I realize though I'm in the minority. 7DPO was about when I couldn't deny it any more.  I didn't test until 11 DPO.

My symptoms are fairly slight and come and go at this point. No symptoms at 4 1/2 weeks is totally normal. The main thing I'm experiencing right now is a metallic taste in my mouth and feeling really tired. I'll be five weeks tomorrow.

I still don't really have any symptoms yet apart from the sudden zit outbreak all over my face. Ugh. Anyone else have this happening?

totally normal.  i was seven weeks on saturday and, aside from the occasional twinge of nausea, i have no symptoms to speak of.  it was pretty much the same with my first two children as well.

 

enjoy it while it lasts.  :)

With both pregnancies, my ms kicked in at about 6 weeks...but nothing at all as early as 4 weeks.  Extra tired at 5 weeks.  Nausea, food numbness,  and extreme fatigue began about 6 wks.

 

I know this is an aside, but I keep seeing people write about "AF cramping" and I cannot figure out what AF is.  Can anyone alight me please?  Sometimes I am a little slow with the initials thing.  I wish there was a resource guide lol :)

These first few weeks can be a bit anxious if you are not feeling symptoms. I am 6 weeks 5 days and I have only had a couple very brief bouts of slight nausea. No other symptoms at all since the early cramping subsided.

I am 4 weeks 3 days and have slightly sore breasts and a few other mild symptoms, but no sickness yet. I think the typical time for that is 6 weeks smile.gif

Lol...funny story about the abbreviations. My friend sent me a text after I got a positive test a few weeks ago. Well DH and I just updated iTunes and iCloud and we started getting each other's texts. So girlfriend (who is also preggers and has been ttc for a while now) asked "So how many dpo are you?" DH was like...uh...what is dpo!? And then he realized that it was my friend. He has no clue about our lingo and he thinks I'm a bit mad for chatting it up about symptoms and dpo etc. He is a more "just let things happen naturally and relax...."type of person. I am like, how is that any fun?!?!?! Silly!

But every pregnancy is different. Some have more symptoms and sickness than others. I wouldn't worry if you don't feel the symptoms yet. You will...soon enough.

I know it is hard. I find myself grabbing my boobs to make sure they're still swollen and somewhat sore. My other pregnancies I had much more swelling and sensitivity in the bbs....but I do feel wiped out and nauseous so I am trying to relax. It is hard though. I am an anxious person by nature.

Hope things start to feel more like a typical pregnancy for you soon. Enjoy this while it lasts!!

I'm 5 weeks today,and I notice almost nothing! Some slight mild symptoms that could easily go unnoticed or be written off. Like, though I certainly do not have any aversions to sweets, I'm not in feeding frenzy mode. I have yet to finish even a pound of the box of chocolate I received over a week ago. Any other time, it'd have been gone within 3 days. I felt slightly sick for one day. I question whether that was anything at all, since dh was sick 2 days later, had a fever (I didn't have a fever though) I think my digestion is slowing down a teensy bit. I've felt a couple random round ligament stretching twinges.

 

I am surprised that I haven't felt, as it was described in my last ddc, that feeling of being "under construction" in there. the light crampy twinges, an "electric" feeling, or feeling of fullness, or an extra "Awareness" of the uterus that I usually associate with the very early weeks.
