It seems my memory of when I was pregnant with my daughter is very fuzzy.<br><br>
I can't remember when my symptoms started with her, but I had a lot of breast tenderness and nausea, and of course, exhaustion. Of course, I was also on Prometrium, so some of it was probably that.<br><br>
I don't seem to really have any symptoms right now other than some mild cramping/pinching, and increase fatigue (doesn't feel that bad). And maybe some random nausea or indigestion?<br><br>
I'm only 4 weeks 6 days right now. Had a beta and progesterone done at 16 dpo, numbers were 220 (hcg) and 46 (progesterone). I got a faint positive at 12 dpo, which got progressively darker by 15 dpo. So I think the numbers look pretty good, based on when the test turned positive. No repeat Beta. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
So I've read plenty that says symptoms often don't start until 6-8 weeks, but can you ladies tell me anyway?

I didn't really have much in the way of symptoms (aside from being really tired) with my first two, healthy, full term pregnancies. I've had terrible MS with this one, which didn't start until 6 weeks, which, I also have heard is really common. Try not to worry!

most of my real strong symptoms didnt start until 8-10 weeks which is normal... MOST women do not actually have noticeable symptoms at 4 weeks and the ones they do have are really mild or easily brushed off (for example the fact that there was blood every time i blew my nose... easily brushed off to being due to dry winter air.)<br><br>
With DS... I didnt get any symptoms short of missing my period until well after my 6th week and ended up with hypermesis gravidarum with him...<br><br>
so really its quite early and while its hard to do (I know!) you just need to relax and trust that all is going well unless you are given actual reason to believe it isnt (cramping with bleeding, for example. Bleeding or cramping separately can be just fine, though usually reason to call your doctor, but at the same time that is usually enough reason to get in ASAP)

This time around my symptoms didn't really kick in until 6 weeks. I think they were a little earlier with my son.

Thanks ladies.<br><br>
I had a m/c prior to being pregnant with my daughter so I tend to worry.<br><br>
I also required treatment to get pregnant with my daughter, so this almost seems too easy.<br><br>
I'll just have to keep remind myself it's early to feel too many symptoms and that my numbers looked pretty good.
