What were the first pregnancy symptoms you got?

BTDT mamas, was it different with previous pregnancy(ies)?

With both the boys, the first symptom was exhaustion. With baby girl, it was nausea. This pregnancy has taken the prize for being the most memorable...

Don't laugh....I was burping.

I don't ever burp. But I was burping. And that's what prompted me to go out and buy a test. AF wasn't due for a few days but I was so sure since I was burping.

This is my first pregnancy. I remember having cramps actually...so thinking my period would come...they were weird though so I should have known. They were slightly different. Other than that - fatigue, increased appetite, sensitive to smells, nausea with no vomiting, horrible congestion/allergies.

With Audrey is was food aversion and sense of smell.

With Sam it was feeling her kick. Didn't know I was pg until I was 14 weeks. Breastfeeding can do that.

This time is was my sense of smell.

I honestly would have never thought I was pregnant if I hadn't been testing like a mad woman. There were really no symptoms to speak of, I only threw up once, but I'm 99% sure that was due to me taking my prenatal on an empty stomach with only one swig of water and then hopping in the car to drive to my doctor appointment. I guess that's why the 3rd trimester is not being very kind to me.

Oddly enough, the first indication that I had that something was "off" was constipation. The weekend before my first missed period (which was Thanksgiving weekend), I got really constipated and that is totally abnormal for me. Luckily, I've been completely regular since then so I guess it was just a freak hormonal occurence. Looking back, I was kind of tired that weekend too but I was battling a cold so I blamed it on that.

With this baby, the very first symptom was itchy and sore BBs closely followed by all-day every-day nausea.

With Daniel, the very first symptom was an unmistakeable metallic taste in my mouth, closely followed by evening nausea and going off most things I normally liked to eat and drink.

Exhaustion and cramping. But I tested super early both times since we were TTC and charting. For the most part I knew I was pregnant before I had many symptoms....other than the ones I imagined and made myself crazy with.

It was always the heightened sense of smell for me. Then the sore breasts and moodiness would kick in- even before I was officially late.

We had been trying to conceive, so I knew when I ovulated and how many DPO. At 5-6 DPO, I had pains in my left ovary that I'd never had before during the 2WW. We were also on vacation at the time, and I was utterly exhausted. We were in Maui, and I was boogy boarding in the ocean. I have a lot of stamina, but I was just completely wiped out after 30 minutes. I fell asleep every night before 10pm. And the third thing was a ridiculous acne breakout on my chest, which has never happened to me before. I had about 100 tiny pimples all over. I just knew I was pregnant, and I sure enough got my BFP when we got back home a few days later.

With DD I felt like I was coming down with something. I had chills one night, woke up early the next morning and had a humungous cold sore! I mean huge. I didn't know I was pregnant for another week or so.

With this pregnancy, I was very thirsty early on, like days past ovulation. Then I got very hungry, and I started having some heartburn which I don't have usually. I wondered if I might be pregnant with those symptoms but it wasn't even 12 DPO so I didn't want to test yet. At 12 DPO I got my cold sore, and I knew. I tested the next morning just to confirm, and got my BFP right away.

With my first I figured it out when my period was late, like 2 months late.

With my second I think I was also late, but only by 1 month.

With my third I had the worst heartburn ever and I told my gramma before I found out that if I didn't know better I would think I was pregnant. And I was talking to a lady when I went to pick up a prescription of percocet from the base pharmacy, she asked if I was pregnant and I said no, she said something about you never know I could see you back here in 9 months with a baby. A couple weeks later I tested because I wasn't sure if I was 6 days late or 20 days late.

With this one we were trying to get pregnant, so I found out before my missed period. I was optimistic about it being positive, we only dtd once and had a confirmation of ovulation the day after from an ultrasound. I didn't even think we'd actually caught the egg. If we weren't trying I might not have found out for a while since my periods were very sporadic before getting pregnant and I had almost no symptoms until my second trimester.

Overall though, I think the heartburn from now on will be a big indicator, since I have acid reflux disease, and being pregnant only makes it 100x worse.
