Have you ever been pregnant without any obvious symptoms?  When I was pregnant with DD, I had sore boobs, but I sometimes get those with AF anyway.  The only reason I tested was because AF was a few days late.  Then the very same day I got BFP, I got my first bought of nausea and aversions.  I still didn't have many symptoms other than being tired for maybe 2-3 more weeks, and I had spotting on and off up through 8 weeks.

I'm curious about your experiences, because I am on CD 31, probably about 13 DPO (I don't know for sure), and my normal PMS symptoms are NOT here.  Even DH said (after I told him a few days ago my period was starting because I had cramps that day), "You're not as bitchy as you usually are on your period."  I was like, "Um... thanks?"  I didn't know whether it was a compliment or an insult.  :P   So I had cramps on maybe CD 10, and no cramps or PMS-y type symptoms since.  I had the teeny-tiniest bit of pink/brown cm on CD 29, a little bit of pink/brown spotting on CD 30, and then practically nothing today (slight, faint spotting early this morning, but less than yesterday).  Now when I wipe there is nothing.  I normally spot for 2-3 days before AF, but usually the last day of spotting I'm having a lot of dark brown and red spotting.

I just know that it's not my luck, and AF will probably show after midnight or so tonight.  I'm holding on to an ever-so-slight hope, though, because we have been TTC #2 for well over a year, and I just feel so desperate. I especially feel sad because DH's brother and his wife are going to have a baby later this year, and DH's cousin and his wife are having their second child in 2 years later this year.  

Anyway... have you had a pregnancy where you had no symptoms before your BFP, and did you have any spotting with it?

I realize this is probably too late to help, but I didn't really have any symptoms with #1.  Normally I would have brown discharge and then the next day start my AF which would bring on the cramps.  But when we were ttc #1 I didn't have any symptoms whatsoever, except I woke up on day 10 DPO kinda crampy (no discharge though), which I thought was really weird because the cramps never usually come until AF is in full swing.  So I took a pg test and got a very faint BFP!  I never ended up having any implantation bleeding, the crampiness was my only symptom for the next few days.  And then eventually I got sore boobs, but I had a relatively symptom free pg to be honest.  No morning sickness, no moodiness.  I did kind of break out during the first trimester and I remember thinking...I thought everyone was supposed to have a pg 'glow'...I look like hell, what gives?  Anyway...hth.
