for those of you that knew you were pregnant or realized pretty early on you were having pregnancy symptoms. how early was it and what were they?

for those who experienced implantation bleeding do you remember what it smelled like? cause i spotted a little bit today and it doesn't smell like period blood more like a vinegar smell

if you go into TTC board theres a sticky at the top that has links to threads in it... and it has a thread of TONS of women giving per dpo differences between their pregnancy cycles and nonpregnancy cycles
(to save you the trouble... a link! http://www.mothering.com/discussions...d.php?t=962404 )
myself, my earliest actual symptom ever was 5dpo with both DD and this baby I got nausea... several other symptoms on top of that too, but they were later on.

I started throwing up and basically having what seemed like food poisoning. Soooo sick! After throwing up for hours, I ended up having to go to the ER, where they told me I was the most dehydrated person they'd seen in a long time. While giving me multiple IV bags of saline solution, they asked if I could be pregnant (to make sure the anti-nausea med they were going to give me was OK). I said, "oh no, I can't be pregnant" because I was on the mini pill. But then I started thinking... I had been late taking the pill a couple times that month. Sure enough, it turned out I was pregnant. I was only about 4 weeks pregnant, and just barely able to be detected by a pregnancy test. Crazy!

I was a week late for AF and on the mini-pill. I knew that it was time to test when my coffee tasted bad. That was so outrageous that I knew I had to be pregnant.

I had implantation bleeding but never noticed a smell.

With my first, my breasts become heavy and quite a big bigger immediately. They were also very sore.

The same happened with this pregnancy but I also started waking up STARVING. I noticed an increase in appetite immediately.

I took a test and found out at 4-5 weeks with both.

Oh, my period was also 3-4 days late.

Heartburn.

I've had severe heartburn with all my pregnancies, and it's started earlier and earlier with each one. And I'm not talking spicy-food-heartburn or baby-in-the-ribs heartburn. I'm 6 1/2 weeks pregnant, and plain water is killing me.

In all my 33 years, I've never had heartburn outside of pregnancy. You'd think I'd have realized what was going on when I was searching for the Tums 2 weeks ago.

I had ovulation spotting 2 days after ovulation.

not implantation spotting for sure though... as implantation happened at 6dpo (thats the day I started getting the pinching and had the triphasic temp rise after)

I had implantation spotting, maybe a week or so after ovulation. But I also had that a couple times where something tried to implant and it didn't take, so it's not 100% sign for me.

My first symptom (not counting the spotting), was getting winded and being unable to finish my workout. This was maybe 12 dpo or so.

The day after conception I had nausea and felt tired. This lasted for 10 days and then went away. Thought it was in my head because I thought I was feeling PMS symptoms for sure. The day I missed AF, I complained of a backache. DH said - 'you're pregnant'. he was right!

that's always an early sign for me too. with my son, i wasn't interested in coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening. dh said "you're pregnant!"

this time around it was burping... it was a couple days before my period was due but convincing enough that i bought a test.

Seriously, nausea at 3-5 DPO with my last two pregnancies. In 36 cycles it has only happened twice and both times I was pregnant. With this pregnancy I had a negative home test on 9dpo, and a positive one on 10dpo and a beta HCG of 10. I recorded all my symptoms for this cycle if you are interested: http://www.countdowntopregnancy.com/...u=8738042_9418

I started to salivate quite a lot. Oh, and that tiredness that is so unique to first trimester pregnancy just kind of overtook me. It was about 5 days before I would have had AF.

With my first, I was craving meat around 12dpo.

With this one, I was stunned to get hit with horrible heartburn from tea and water at 6dpo. I was testing way early and getting frustrated because I knew something was up. Took almost a week to get a positive test.

With my first I had extreme thirst even before my positive test. with this pregnancy I started waking up at like 2 am and couldn't get back to sleep.

My first symptoms with both pgs, well before a missed period, were sharp cramping, and being very hungry. No breast changes or fatigue until a week or so later.

I had fatigue as a first symptom. But, I was also at the hospital with my 5yo the week before I got my BFP, so that was explained away. The sudden hunger, was too, because I was so stressed. I'm pretty sure both were pg symptoms, though.

I had implantation spotting at 5dpo. I started getting bfp's at 8dpo. No "symptoms" until 6+ weeks, when I thought I had the stomach flu, but it didn't go away and was actually the beginning of major morning sickness that lasted all day and all night until around 14 weeks.
