What was the VERY FIRST sign that you were pregnant? - Page 6

post #101 of 181
Oh, I was SO tired before I knew with #1 ... I felt like a ZOMBIE! Plus, I would get SO out of breathe doing the simplest things, which is weird b/c I was a runner in really good shape. I could've run 3 miles w/o breaking a sweat, but suddenly I felt like I was having an asthma attack climbing a flight of stairs.

With #2, I didn't really have any early symptoms that I noticed. She was a much easier pregnancy, although w/ both I had to eat fatty, greasy foods causing me to gain 60-65 lbs each time or else I would feel like throwing up and passing out. At least the weight came off easily enough.

I was trying on bikinis and I actually filled out a top for the first time in my life! :LOL

Brushing my tongue. I always did a quick swipe before. But with both pregnancies, brushing it absentmindedly for 2 min w/out realizing it.

My dh and I went camping, and there were a few signs. I could not find spot that was just right. We moved camp 3-4 times, and dh was getting upset about it. The 2nd time we moved, I decided I couldn't camp there, because it was too windy, and it didn't have a wood table. When we were packing up, I just started bawling. I was so upset, I was crying like a baby. I knew something was wrong, because I am never quite that emotional. I thought to myself later that day...hmmmm....I wonder if I'm pregnant?!

It was hard to tell with me. I was on vacation about a week after ovulation. We had been trying, but I didn't really expect to be pg. My friends and I were at a yoga retreat at an ashram in the mountains that serves vegetarian food. The food does things to your digestive system, so I didn't think about the gas. The altitude always gets to me, so I didn't think anything about being tired and out of breath. I had an herbal treatment that does strange things to you emotionally and physically, so I didn't pay any attention to the slight nausea. I did think it was weird that I was eating alot more than usual, and that I was too tired and weak to do much yoga, because I'm usually a yoga fiend. On the day I was expecting my period, I did start to bleed, but it wasn't very much and was a brownish color. It occured to me it might be implantation bleeding, but I didn't want to get my hopes up. On the day we left for home from vacation, I woke up that morning and thought I should take a test, which I had brought with me. I was not prepared for the two little lines that showed up!

We went on a road trip to meet up with some friends, and on the way home, I made DH pull over and I had to pee in the bushes because I was about to explode. It came on so suddenly and I was sooo uncomfortable. Weird because I can usually hold it for quite a long time if I need to, and this just came on so suddenly. :LOL

A few days later I was teaching yoga, and I went down on my belly to do cobra pose and my breasts were so tender and sore and definitely made me go hmmmm...should I test? Went home, POAS and voila, two lines! I literally rubbed my eyes because I couldn't believe it and my heart filled with joy. We are expecting our little bundle in late October.

My period came on the day it was supposed to but then disappeared within an hour. I thought that was weird but chalked it up to my body's typical moodiness. Turns out that was implantation bleeding. I really began to suspect something when my period didn't resume after 4 days. So I bought a test and the rest is history.

A few days after sex and ovulation, I said to my husband, "I feel like there is a party in my belly."

(I tend to feel what is going on with my body more than most.)

I put it aside because it was too early to do anything. The next weekend, I had a couple over for dinner and puked my guts out. I was worried I had served bad seafood and food poisoned everyone, but no one was sick but me.

The next week I said to a friend, I could be pregnant right now, and as I said it, I just KNEW it. I ran home took a test and was right.

Well, with DS I just *knew* a few days after conception, I turned to my not yet dh in the car and said "We may need to buy a pregnancy test in a week or two" I waited until about the day af was due and sure enough 10:30 pm and it was a DARK pos.

With our m/c we'd been practicing NFP, but I'd fallen off a horse about 4 days before O and was taking motrin to combat the pain. My temps were off and I mistook my usual O pain as "time for another dose" Baby stopped growing at 5 weeks, m/c at 9 wks 5 days.

With this one. We were ttc after our loss, it was the 4th month. Our anniversary is in Jaunary, and I wanted to attempt to concieve with out our 'props' so I put away my BBT 5 days before af was due, I had used ALL of my OPK's with that cycle, and found my last HPT before a shower (cleaning out the cabinet) and took it, it was also about 10 pm at night, it was a faint-ish positive, but even dh could see it with out adjusting lights or turning it!

Looking back I've "just known" all three times, I didn't have a physcial symptom until after the tests. With ds the m/s didn't start until I was 10 weeks after eatting about a lb of white graped I puked my guts out. With the m/c I did have a little m/s before 'she' stopped growing, but it was like 4 days worth of just not feeling right. With this one, the BURPING!!! The progestrone is a smooth muscle relaxer, causing the digestive system to relax, more burps, heartburn and nausea with vomitting. The burping was mostly my form of morning sickness, I did have a few epidsodes of true nausea though.

I was insanely thirsty, like walking in the desert thirsty and only water would do. Also (tmi) I had a slight discharge that smelled different than usual, not bad, but different.

Hey! Cobra pose was one of the poses I couldn't do all of a sudden, too! It just made my belly feel weird.

Very, ver sore boobs were my first sign. DD's and I were driving to Indiana for a visit, and I kept thinking, "Why do my boobs hurt so bad?" I thought maybe it was from the seatbelt, LOL. I was about 3-4 dpo at the time.

I didn't have any symptoms with my first pregnancy until m/s set in around 6 weeks.

I know! :LOL That was why when the test turned positve, almost a black line it was so dark, that I was convinced it was wrong! I thought the test "adh" to be broken. IT coudn't be right! 6 tests later I finally said fine. It took me almost 48 hours to even tell dh!

Oh, I also wreck the car when pg. With Tracy I ran into an 8 foot ditch and up the otehr sidea t 22 weeks. With Bryce I backed into a fence 3 days after the test turned positive.

Intuition, but the physical symptoms were with the first one breast tenderness and the second cramping. I never really got morning sickness with either pregnancy.

For me it was 7+ nights in a row of horrid, bloody, slasher dreams. People getting cut up with chainsaws and the whole nine yards. I finally thought I must have some serious hormones racing through my system and sure enough I was preggo.

Ok, the ladies who's AF was due on the 13th.....did she show??????

Funny a couple people mentioned milk--I didn't notice it but I guess my dh did cause the other night we had spagetti and he asked if I wanted something to drink--when I said yes a glass of milk he looked at me all weird and said "are you pregnant???" I wasn't :LOL

Signs for me were mega CM, fatigue and then about when the test turned positive I couldn't eat, smell or cook beef--adn I love my beef!
