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<br>
(to save you the trouble... a link! <a href="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/showthread.php?t=962404" target="_blank">http://www.mothering.com/discussions...d.php?t=962404</a> )<br>
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.<br><br>
With my first, my breasts become heavy and quite a big bigger immediately. They were also very sore.<br><br>
The same happened with this pregnancy but I also started waking up STARVING. I noticed an increase in appetite immediately.<br><br>
I took a test and found out at 4-5 weeks with both.<br><br>
Oh, my period was also 3-4 days late.

Heartburn. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/angry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="angry"><br><br>
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.<br><br>
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. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">

I had ovulation spotting 2 days after ovulation.<br><br>
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.<br><br>
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!

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> 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!"<br><br>
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: <a href="http://www.countdowntopregnancy.com/homepage/?u=8738042_9418" target="_blank">http://www.countdowntopregnancy.com/...u=8738042_9418</a>

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.<br><br>
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.

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.
