For me...I cramped when I O'd, left ovary. And I didn't stop cramping throughout the 2ww! Around 8-9dpo I had a lil gas, and constipation. Then I also had one instance where my gums bled when I brushed my teeth. Also, I started to get lil dizzy spells. I knew I was pg then! I got my bfp at 11dpo. I'm pretty sure I got a couple faint ones a couple days prior, but I wasn't sure so I discarded them. HTH!
Good luck ladies!!! Lots of baby dust for all of you!!!

I had no signs really, the only thing I remember was feeling a little pop on my right side around 7-8 DPO and I pretty sure it was her implanting since she did in fact implant on my right side.
The other thing I noticed was that usually I start to spot a tiny bit a day or two before my AF but this time I didn't at all. This is actually why I tested because truth be told, i didn't think that I even ovulated that month so I didn't have my hopes up very high.
In my DDC I noticed that most of us had little to NO symptoms at first. I remember a lot of us specifically commenting on this because it was nerve wracking. It wasn't until about 5-6 weeks that most of us started feeling a bit pregnant and it wasn't until about 7-9 weeks when most of us started with our morning sickness. I swear I felt more preggo symptoms on the months we didn't concieve (IPS) than when I actually did.
Creamy cervical fluid
Increased sex drive
CD 29 (Jul 21) - 3 wks, 4 d
AF is one day late. BFN in the afternoon with a FRER.
My bb's are SO sore! Usually before AF, they pretty much get sore and stay that way. They've been getting worse every day, they have big blue veins all over them, and today I noticed that my nips were sore to the touch.
Other symptoms...it feels like I pulled a muscle on my right side, right by my belly button, and it's sensitive in my uterus area. Smells bother me.
I also recorded:
CD 30 (Jul 22) - 3 wks, 5 d
Hurts to have a full bladder, like my bladder is pushing against something
My signs were definitely the cramping from the time I O'd all the way through my rather short "TWW," and also the sudden waves of nausea that came on at just 6DPO. I thought the cramping was strange because I NEVER cramp for days on end before AF comes. I tested at 7DPO and got a very faint line on a $test. I didn't trust it, so I tested the next day with an Answer brand test and got a definite light pink line!
I never once spotted (no IB for me), and still haven't. My bean's still in there all snug and warm!
I think I *started* to keep a log of how I was feeling. Lemme check my comp files...
Ah. Here it is:
O'd CD13 June 14th
1dpo - CM still very wet
2dpo - CM same, boobs slightly sore
3dpo - CM same, nipples now sensitive, napped from 5pm to 7.45pm (unlike me) kinda nauseous all PM.
4dpo - CM same, nips MUCH more sensitive. Wake at 4.45am with very bad af-like cramping which keeps me awake until 8am. Fall back to sleep then awake at 11am nauseous. cramps much milder but continue throughout the day. Irritable.
5dpo - CM creamy mixed with EWCM - kinda globy/snot (I know, ick!). Nipples painfully super sensitive and keep hardening of their own accord. Outsides of boobs kinda sore too. Itchy, tingly nose (no hayfever, no other signs of a cold). Appetite is MIA. Forve down a sandwich at 11pm that makes me feel very nauseous and I gag afterwards.
6&7dpo - Nipples the same. Egads, they're driving me nuts. Lots of EWCM keeps appearing - if I didn't chart and had seem a clear thermal shift I'd suspect O! Nose keeps running, making me sneeze several times - definitely don't have a cold though.
8&9dpo - Nipples still driving me crazy. Still randomly popping up tosay 'Hi!' for no reason and now appear slightly darker/bumpier. CM vanishes. Like, totally. That's odd for me.
10dpo - Creamy/EWCM is back. Super senstive nips are still super sensitive. Skin breaks out HORRIBLY on chin and neck. Time to test? IC and FMU = Negative.
11&12dpo - The bizarre snotty creamy/ewcm just won't quit. Nips the same, but temps dipping and heading towards coverline so I guess af is on her way. Another negative IC test 12dpo makes this seem more likely.
13dpo - I gag when I take a sip of champagne (my favourite drink!) and so do not drink the whole evening out as I just... don't want to. Strange! When I go to bed I'm asleep as my head hits the pillow - curiouser and curiouser. Especially as temp is even lower. However normally spot 13&14dpo before af starts in earnest and despite constant checking, I'm not spotting...
14dpo - Boobs join nips in feeling different - very full and kinda painful feeling. Feel starving all day long but absolutely NOTHING sounds good to eat. Temp up a little and still no spotting. Start to get a 'I knew it!' feeling...
15dpo - Wake at 6am and temp is back up to 36.83 (98f). Decide to test. IC (supposedly 10 miu - yeah, RIGHT!) shows a squinter... a FRER in the same sample shows a clear so I dip a digi which confirms 'pregnant'
Hope that helps someone... and if not directly helps then gives them a few moments of 'obsessing' fun! (I know I liked to obsess over 2ww symptoms )
Much good luck and to you Ladies ttc!

DS4 has arrived! 18th May 2012. 9lb 1oz. Beautiful!
Not many symptoms prior to BFP, and still not a whole lot going on yet! My only one (other than no PMS cramping or headache) was and is SORE BOOBIES! I've been a little more emotional than normal as well, crying more easily over silly things. I also had an over whelming "I'm pregnant" feeling the day before my 1st faint positive, which is why I stopped ont he way home for some FRERS.
OMG I have been cramping since I ovulated too!!! I keep thinking it's a sign I am preg. It is worse on the right side. and at various times of the day. And chocolate has been grossing me out, which I usually love. AND I know this doesn't usually happen till 2nd trimester, but I have had awful heartburn for past three days, I never get heartburn. I hope this is the month!!!
I just want to say thank you for posting allyour symptoms ladies! It made me feel better and gave me some hope. My cycle has been so screwed up this past month but one thing is for sure MY Boobs won't leave me alone... the feel different look different ect ect. I have tested for the past 4 days and so far BFN i think my AF was due yesterday or today and possibly tomorrow but the more bfn's iget the more i'm loosing hopefor this month but anyhow i wanted to say thank you and you gave me some hope for this month Congradulations on your pregnancies and new babies.
