I *thought* my breasts were sore for a day or two but now I feel just fine. I'm a bit worried at my lack of symptoms. I don't remember when I started feeling symptoms with the first two. I'm about 4 weeks. Just wondering if anyone else is full of pg symptoms. I'm hoping I'll start feeling sick soon. (boy that sounds wierd).

Pure exhaustion. But that's based on my health junk even more than a bean.

I so hope I don't puke or get morning sickness...I managed to avoid all that with Corbin and I'd love to have a 2 for 2 going on!

First, don't worry about not having symptoms... it could just be that you're one of those women who make the rest of us want to puke lol (ie, you're lucky)

Personally, I can't really say what my current symptoms are since I also have the flu, but before that kicked in... I had what I call the 'first trimester freight train'... the nausea/heartburn and the exhaustion.

I know! I can smell everything a mile away.

Both times for me I got S.I.C.K. at around 6 weeks. I've been trying to eat healthy and clean the house because I know in a few weeks it will be all ramens, poptarts, and dirty socks.

So far I don't have many symptoms other than ridiculous bloating, sore breasts, and fatigue. I've had a few bouts of nausea, usually triggered by coffee creamer.

I have been nauseous for a few weeks now. I think I got nauseous a few days after conception but it was on and off. (it could be other things too though.). Now I have morning sickness, backaches, I'm peeing all the time and extreme fatique.

Definitely peeing non-stop. Queasiness at times, but nothing too bad, thank you Lord. Bbs are VERY sore...wow! Lots of evening bloat, lots of gas, heartburn. Yes, my pants are already headed toward feeling too tight.

And I am so. unbelievably. sleepy. I can barely keep my eyes open in the afternoons.

Funny how fast the symptoms start coming on, isn't it? A week ago, I didn't have enough symptoms to think I was pg before I took the hpt!

I just found out on 23/12 that I am pregnant (tested early, 9 dpo) .. And seeing as I am the ultimate POAS addict, I have tested everyday since (they are now as dark as the control line, 14 dpo).
Anyways, my only symptoms have been af-like cramps (mainly 11 and 12dpo), needing to pee more (although I do drink a lot of water), and the occasional am-I-imagining-it breast tingling.
I have had 2 chemical pregnancies (july and aug 2008), so the "lack" of symptoms is bothering me too.
I find myself looking at my tests a billion times a day, I have never had lines this dark, so Im hoping this little bean is a sticky one!

wow thanks ladies! So many people are joining this DDC!!!! I still have no symptoms and am trying to ignore my worries. I've tested a gazillion times. With DS2 I tested once. Thats it! The line was very dark today.

So far nasea
kinda sore breasts lots of tingling
heartburn and gas with bloating
slight cramps
I am glad someone else said backache because I was thinking the later in pregancy backache was starting early. My hips and inner thighs have been kind of achy at night as well. And I always have to pee.
I also can smell really well. I thought the house was on fire when my son had the glue gun on down the hall.

Carolyn_mtl, there is a similar "am I imagining it-ness" in the early weeks for me too--both with my previous pregnancy & this one.

Also, an enormous, ferocious bear has taken residence inside my mouth. It seems to be very ill tempered & roars a lot. I've asked my husband not to poke the bear & in exchange, have agreed to keep it on a leash.

I'm only on CD 22, 7DPO, but I have had horrible night sweats! Soaking the sheets!! I think it is the clomid, but I didnt have night sweats when i was actually taking the pills. Weird! I am hoping it is a pregnancy symptom, I really never hear of it as one in early pregnancy :

For me, mild nausea...

It's a totally new sensation for me, I didn't have ONE DAY of it with DS, and I know this sounds kind of weird, but I LIKE it!!

It's reassuring to KNOW there's something going on in there. Last time I wouldn't have believed I was actually pregnant if not for the scan up until when I started showing at about 5 months..

That's about it, and maybe a little more tired than usual. No sore boobs, no food aversions, nothing.

When I first tested I was feeling a wee bit nauseated on a daily basis, very tired & kinda spacey, all of which happened for my last pregnancy two years ago (almost to the day!).

After I tested the nausea got worse (feeling like I was actually gonna heave) and the tiredness became exhaustion. I bought myself a pair of Sea Bands for the nausea, listened carefully to what my body was asking for (strangely and wonderfully it is asking for leafy greens, organic meats, squash and fresh berries!) and allowed myself the luxury of sleeping for as long as I needed (no kids yet, obviously!). The one time I was in a big hurry and didn't listen to my body about food I grabbed a slice of pizza (which I normally can't get enough of) and felt nauseated for hours after.

Now I just wear the bands for short periods when the nausea seems to be coming back and they keep it at bay very successfully.

I've also had tender breasts (no tingling, that I can tell) and a <b>wicked, wicked </b> temper in the past few days along with being pretty easy to cry (I cried yesterday when I listened to the Anglican church's apology to Native people in Canada for abuse in residential schools. That's not too unusual - I cried when Harper apologised for the same thing, and I wasn't even pregnant then - but this was only about a five-second clip on the radio, and )

Another thing that I am dealing with is something that I got with my last pregnancy, and that is anxiety! I really hate the feeling and I'm sure it's not good for the bean. I try visualization, meditation, distraction... sometimes it works for a bit, but it always comes back. It feels like tightness in my ribcage. Anyone else experience this?

Oh, man! I TOTALLY went off on my dh last night....twice! I felt like my emotions were veering very much out of control. We never, ever call each other names, or fight dirty, nor do we cuss at each other. But I *think* I invented a new word last night..."jackassery". Whoops.

Anxiety: I would invest in a bottle of Rescue Remedy or two, if you don't already have some. I keep one around the house and one in my purse. There are also some homeopathics that help with anxiety.

And yes, actually, now that you mention it, I have had a few bouts of mild anxiety...Time to get my RR out...

I am 5 weeks pregnant today and so far I am just experiencing some mild nausea but nothing too bad yet. I feel a little more tired than usual but I am sure Christmas time with a 3 year old is a bit of a factor!

With my last pregnancy morning sickness (well really at bedtime) didn’t kick in until I was around 11 weeks. I remember naively reading my books and seeing that morning sickness usually ended around the third month and thinking how lucky I was that I didn’t have far to go.

Ha! Silly me! I ended up vomiting pretty much every day up until a ½ hour before my daughter was born. This time I stocked up on preggie pops as soon as I found out I was pregnant!

If I didn't think I was pregnant, I would definitely be in bed with the "flu" right now! I am soooo exhausted, and I even had a 2 hour nap this afternoon. I've been so lucky in that DP is still on holidays, until next week.
Nausea has started, and bothers me most in the middle of the night. I've been mostly just wanting to eat things like rice crispies, or toast. I managed to get down some coleslaw and fried tofu on bread tonight, and it's sitting ok!

Oh and I've been *very* spacey. DP told me I've been a little out of it lately.

I also keep feeling tingling in my lower abdomen. Am I imagining this?? lol!
Tomorrow we will get the call from the doctor's office, but I am 100% sure I am pregnant at this point! woohoo!!!

Finally today I got some symptoms! I got queasy twice. And I felt a little crampy, which I've had with both my prior pregnancies. I also peed about every 45 minutes. I'm happy for symptoms today!

Ever since 10dpo my breasts have been sore and bigger, and I can't keep my eyes open in the afternoons. I like having symptoms too. I'm actually looking forward to the nausea and vomiting. Like trancechylde said, "It's reassuring to KNOW there's something going on in there."

That is where I am, wanting to know!

I thought the bigger breasts and tenderness was from LO's appitite increasing, that is, until AF never showed. And now I am excessivly tired (my first symptom, usually). But I keep thinking that I could be wrong and I may not be pg and then I will have no excuse for all my symptoms. Or that I am making myself have symptoms because I THINK I am pg.

Boy! I wish I could have a solid answer NOW! (I am not patient at all! Can you tell?)
