Ya know, I feel like it's so early I shouldn't be feeling anything, but I am definitely feeling very bloated, crampy and exhausted! I wore my jeans to work today - BIG mistake! Thankfully I have a poncho & a long tank that hides the fact that I have had to unbutton them!!!

Can this really be real? Am I really going to have a baby? This is really the dream of my lifetime, and it's going to come true!!!

I do, but I they are probably progesterone induced. I feel queazy, my boobs hurt and I am swollen. I already had to take off my rings. I am very thirsty, but food sounds yucky. But if I dont eat I feel light headed and very tired. I am so happy to be feeling something though, its so reassuring to me

hey mamas!!! I am so excited to be here with you all. Thank you for making the road to pregnancy and all of the obsessing more tolerable. I really appriciated MDC when DH was sick of hearing about TTC. i thrilled to be here with you all!!

As far as preg signs...My boobs are huge and hurt really bad. I had to wear a padded bra today so nothing would rub against my nipples. I'm hungry and tired and dizzy if i don't eat. I also keep feeling these little twinges in my rigght lower side. i don't know what the heck that is. And everyone knows about my spotting.

Blech! I'm 6 weeks and totally nauseous. I haven't actually thrown up yet, and I'm praying that doesn't happen. I hate this constant feeling of queasiness, though. It's like being on a rocky boat and not being able to get off. I'm normally a foodaholic, but the thought of eating anything makes my stomach turn. Oh, how I wish I could fast forward time and just get to the 2nd trimester!

Everyone's symptoms sound great...even it they are tough to handle!

As for me, I am freaking out a little bit as I feel absolutely nothing. Truly nothing. I am peeing a lot. Have had a lot of night waking (assuming hormonal), yet that is it. I am only 5 weeks tomorrow, yet I want to feel something. This is #3 for me, and I know with #1, I was bloated right away, yet had very little m/s. With #2 I had a very tough first tri, yet I can't remember how quickly I started to feel crummy. I am hoping that it was more like 6-7 weeks when the fatigue set in and the m/s. Otherwise, I am trying to stay positive, appreciate how good I do feel, and praying that all is ok.

I am so tired! Of course chasing after a 15 month old will do that to you :LOL I am nauseous and have a yucky taste in my mouth occasionally, but mostly I can't figure out what I want to eat. That is normally not a problem for me :LOL I am so bloated also, I can't wear my regular pants comfortably already. I've been wearing some of the maternity stuff I have that just has the band that goes around so it doesn't look like maternity but fits better. My nipples are sore while nursing, but they are better than they were before. I have lots and lots of CM too (sorry TMI) which I remember having with my dd also. Most of the time I feel pretty normal so I keep forgetting I'm pregnant. With my dd I felt really weird at the beginning (since I'd never been pg before) so I was able to believe I was pregnant from early on. This time I'm having a hard time believing it, but it will probably become more real when I feel the baby moving and start showing.

So far my only symptom is hunger. I never had ms with #1, so maybe I will get lucky this time too. I have my first Dr. appointment on Monday, I will feel much better after seeing all the blood work and knowing that everything is okay. I had low progesterone with #1, and am still nursing so I am a little concerned about that.

okay, my symptoms. Ha ha. I have sore breasts which are rock hard. I can not stand anything touching me anywhere. I feel tired to the point of not getting out of bed for 3 days. I feel sick and have been extremely nauseated for about a week now. I am still holding out hope that it is the flu because there is no way that this is normal. I can't even function. Give me strength not to complain in real life!!!

This is so weird! I feel pretty much normal right now, to the point I actually forget I'm pregnant :LOL Sometimes I feel yucky like I mentioned before, but then there are times when I feel fine so I have a hard time believing this is real! I sure hope it is real though or I'm going to feel REALLY stupid! :LOL

wow, we have such a range of symptoms! does everyone know how many days past ovulation you are? I'd be curious...

Well, I think I might have had a new one pop up last night - I've been taking prenatals for a year now, and last night was my first serious gag. I actually thought I was not going to catch my breath to get more water down, I was dry heaving so badly! It was totally the smell that got to me - B vitamins always make me want to gag (though I never actually do!)

Ummmm, I've heard others complain about prenatals - are there other options??? And, what is everyone else taking? Anyone else on a prescribed pill, or are you getting them yourself?

aside from that, I am still crampy and bloated. I do wish the cramps would go away and something more... reassuring kick in. And I wish I could sleep better in the early morning. I'd much rather be sleeping right now!

Celesterra ~ I am either 13 or 15dpo either way about 4 weeks, I am a little worried as I got my BFP so early. I'm still temping - anyone else? and its good to see my temps still high. I am still quite crampy too, some days worse than others. I do remember cramps with my ds but I can't remember how long they lasted! I had awful morning sickness with him too but that was from 7 weeks.

Hey FSM, you're up early too!

I am 15dpo. Since I am trying not to worry, I decided to stop temping. I figure whatever happens is going to happen, but it is weird to not temp after doing it every day for over 2 years! I am actually debating asking my nurse to not reveal my next betas, just tell me that we're ok. I know myself too well: I will be obsessing in no time. I wish I could have gone in today for my 2nd beta, though. It would be nice to be able to find out today that everything is going right. I have to wait for an open lab on Monday.

It doesn't sound like you've got anything to worry about, though! I'm sure you've got a sticky one in there! It implanted so early!

I am 4 weeks today. I got my first bfp on cd 25. I know we bd'd on cd 13, but that's it forthe month (we weren't trying) soi have no idea when i ovulated. i used to ovulate on day 15/16,maybe this month was early.

i don't have any symptoms now, but i took the test because i was constipated and my lower back is killing me. i ALWAYS have loose bms right before my period, so to be constipated gave me the hint...is there a sticky for too much information??? :

i too can't wait for any symptoms to come. having had 2 miscarriages, i hearby call on all morning sickness to come my way! bring it on!

I am 17dpo. I am really tired all the time. All I want to do is sleep. It's a beautiful day today and I should be out enjoying it but I would be perfectly happy with a big storm coming through, renting a movie, and chilling with DH all day!!! Too bad he's working like a dog to get our house done. We are completly gutting and renovating a 1920's bungalow here in Asheville. Should be done in September some time. I should be over there helping!!

My boobs are so sensitive!!! I can't let anything touch them. The only thing that is helping is this tank top with a built in bra. It's a little tight so it keeps them from moving around and brushing against anything!!

My back and my shoulders are all broken out. That was actually the first "sign" that something was different this cycle.

I'm so hungry right now. It seems like as much as I eat I can't get full. Weird!!

I would welcome any more signs. I am going to have my quant redrawn on monday too. : I will feel much better after that!!

I am 14dpo. I got my first positive on cd25. My boobs hurt, I'm bloated and gassy after almost every meal for atleast 2 hrs or longer and that's been going on since last Tuesday before I knew I was pregnant. I almost bawled my eyes out over a newspaper article about the only mother on the space shuttle and how her kids and dh are coping at home without her. I can smell everything better especially cat puke. Blech! I haven't thrown up, but have been either really nauseas or just a little off and on. I drink a ton more water and I pee all the time and I have two pairs of pants left that I don't have to unbutton the top button on. I imagine I will run out of clothes to wear very soon. Time to shop!

I'm still temping, but probably will stop like celestra because I'm too paranoid and worried when my temp goes up and down.

I think that's about it.

Heather, I am feeling the same symptoms as you exactly, now at 17dpo too.

I am now terrified because I got my 2nd beta back at it was "a little low." I didn't think I would react so strongly, but it's really hit me hard. I go back on Wed. am for another beta. :

I am 23 DPO and still feeling pretty darn good. It worries me some days, yet, I am sleeping horribly at night (hormones?) and I think that I felt pretty good each prior pregnancy until 6 weeks. Hoping all is ok. For now, I am trying to appreciate it for what it is worth!

Celeste. Hopefully the betas pop back up on Wed. and alls good. Feeling symptoms at all is a good thing. I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers. I go on Thurs for a blood draw. I would have liked to have gone sooner, but since I am basically starting over in finding healthcare now that I am home in AZ its hard to get an immediate appointment. I called like 8 doctores, 4 wont deliver babies anymore The liability insurance is too high. Another doctor could get me in the second week of September and another one is supposively calling me back this afternoon since I need to talk to the nurse to see if I can get in quicker since I am "high risk" on progesterone. Grrrrr it makes me really want to drive home to CA for all my prenatal care. DH doesnt think thats a good idea, although then I know I would have a chance at a vaginal delivery............
