Ok guys, I am about 4 weeks and 2 days. All of my symptoms but 2 are kind of intermittent.

Come and goes are: fatigue, heartburn, nausea, mood (of course), and the infamous peepee issue.......

But the two that are here to stay thus far are: my freaky need for 1-3 big bags of the walmart circus peanuts per day, and then my tummy. I am so bloated that I look 2 or 3 months pregnant right now. This always happens to me though. It usually goes back down by like week 8 or so. But by then I only have about 3 weeks before it pops out from the baby and not bloating. Can we say "Hello maternity clothes"?

I have sore breasts, nausea, the ocasional throwing up, fatigue - I've been going to sleep at 8:30 and not waking until 7 the past four nights. All symptoms have been pretty strong until today - which makes me a little worried, but I know it could mean nothing and I can't do anything about it.

I'm 5 weeks today So far I have sore boobs (they've got a bit bigger too!), bloating and I'm really tired by the middle of afternoon.

No nausea so far but I have a sneaking suspicion that its going to kick in soon as both my mum and my sister suffered from it quite badly during their pregnancies.

I am 5 weeks today. I am having fatigue and insomonia (insomnia was a problem when I was pregnant with my son- I HATE it). I have a decreased appetite and occassional bouts of nausea. I am also having some off and on mild cramping (sort of like menstrual cramps but different)...that is a new one, I haven't had that with either of my previous 2 pregnancies.
With my son I didn't really feel bad until 6 or 7 weeks.

astar326- are you using a different method of calculating how far along you are? I was confused how you are 6 weeks? I checked your chart and it looks like we O'd on the same day (1/8)...

I'm about 4 weeks and I've had nausea, bloating, slight cramping, fatigue, and some mood swings. Basically, everything makes me tear up because it's so sweet or touching or awesome (although only to my pregnant brain).

I'll be 5 weeks on Saturday and not too many symptoms here yet. Just some fatigue (of course, my 18 month old isn't sleeping through the night yet, so it could be that, too. ), swings between super hungry and not much appetite and gas . That last one was a big symptom for me the last two times, too.

I am 4 weeks 4 days and I had some cramping over the weekend, but that's basically ended. I have had a little (TMI) diarrhea and gas. The weirdest thing though, is that for the past few mornings I have woken up to the most vivid sex dreams! Is that a pregnancy symptom? My nipples are just now starting to get a little sensitive. I'm also bloated.

3 weeks 4 days : and symptoms:
- very visible capillaries/spider veins in breasts (this is what tipped me off really), and some varicosities ALREADY? way to go, circulatory system!
- nausea more of the carsick dizzy variety
- fatigue starting a few days ago along with insomnia, good combination
- a distinct LACK of boob soreness, which I usually have by 5dpo
- food tastes odd, the only things that taste GOOD are made from chocolate

I'm six weeks on Monday. I can't decide what are symptoms, and what are me just using pregnancy as an excuse (like my crazy "craving" for chocolate milk during DSs pregnancy - I always crave chocolate milk, but somehow I could justify it then. Hmm, and I wonder how I gained 55 lbs...) Anyway, I feel more irritable, my nipples seem a little sore when DS nurses, last night I felt a little nauseous. That's about it. Frankly I would welcome some real, hard to deny, symptoms, as they would mean this is real. I'm still scared of MC. (I never thought I would say that through my last pregnancy, except for the chocolate milk, of course. I remember lying on the ground overcome with nausea, moaning, "Why would my mother do this EIGHT times!!!???"

I threw up this AM-I never threw up with DD in the beginning and I have already this AM. I am 4 wks 2 days-I feel better now. I get these waves of extreme nausea and then that sweaty mouth thing(all that extra saliva). I've been waking up at 2:45 consistently for the last week or so to pee then having insomnia. Honestly I feel hung over like I partied hard and drank red wine for a few days.

Plus I am super sleepy....

I think so far (looking at the "how old are you?" thread) I'm the oldest! So, it feels like even more of a miracle than usual being 4 weeks pregnant.

I've been spotting for 10 days now, and have only (!) taken 3 preg tests to confirm that I still am pregnant. Otherwise, I have very very tender breasts, like even a bra is not comfortable, and cramping. The spotting and cramping are decreased today. These are the same symptoms as I had with #1 nearly nine years ago. Other than these symptoms, I feel like my regular self.

Oh, the funny thing was that a few days after conception, I felt let down in my breasts!

Menstrual like cramps, sore sore breasts, a little bit of fatigue, a bit more emotional, some slight nausea, and at the same time (somehow) super-appetite and really enjoying food nowadays :. Also, some considerable bloating.

I'm 5 weeks today. Mostly I'm just a little more tired than usual and I've had diarrhea everyday since Monday which I didn't have with my other two pgs. I haven't had much morning sickness yet, but I'm starting to feel funny once in a while and I had very strong morning sickness with both of my boys so I'm assuming I'll have it again this time around, but we'll see. Oh, and bloated, I feel really bloated.

I'm 4 weeks, 3 days. The on-and-off nausea I had a few days ago is mostly gone -- trying not to be worried about that -- but I am tired and VERY hungry! I remember this with ds: when I needed to eat, it was very sudden and very strong. I don't think it started so early last time, though.

Right now I am awake because of some weird pulling (kinda painful) feeling right above my pubic bone. Crazy! I think I'm going to go crash back out, though. I'm ti-red.

I guess I have insomnia since its 1:38am and Ive been in bed since 10:30pm without sleeping yet. Ugh...and my DH is actually sleeping well tonight. Last week I had major carb munchies - I could not get enough cereal!

Ok guys, I am 4 weeks and 5 days today. I thought I had fatigue before but holy sleepy head, I am just pooped all day long for the past few days.

Not too much nausea. Just a little. Enough to let me know I am pregnant. Boobs don't feel as sore. I am eating like a pig but I think that has a lot more to do with me just eating cuz I know I am pregnant than me actually being hungry. Still have my circus peanuts thing goin on. I want to stop eating them so bad but I just can't put them down.

Then something I thought it was weird but I see a lot of people have this problem is the effin gasiness. Man I am bloated so bad and I just fart all day long. A few times I had a soft BM but I guess I wouldn't really call it diarrhea. I am so shocked about the gas thing.

I am starting to not fit into my clothes at all due to the bloat. My mom told me today I couldn't be showing already. I am just like um ok, tell that to my belly. I catch DH stairing at it all the time. I know it is bigger because of the bloat and not actually the growth of my uterus but hey, what's the difference? One way or another I am going to need maternity clothes very shortly.

K, lol. That is all my symptoms for now. I might add or subtract in the next few days.


That's going to be so awsome when we get to start the "Show ur bump" thread.".

I'm 3w3d today. First tip off, nausea but that I get while pmsing sometimes too. Second tip off and the one that really got me suspicious, my breasts hurt and my nipples are on fire. Nursing right now is horribly painful, just like it was when I pregnant with the twins. Third big sign, lots of cramps. Now I'm having food aversions, the smell of bacon is making me nauseus and I can't drink milk without feeling like I have to puke. No throwing up but I have never done so this early before, just the all day nausea. I was lucky enough to escape it last time, but it seems I'm not going to be so lucky this time around!
