What pregnancy symptoms did you have/when? What symptoms have you heard of?

I have only been pregnant once...and I was a bit tired and had implantation bleeding (also some mild cramping)...before I even found out I was preg....nothing else at all though (which makes it hard now to tell if I might be)

found this online and thought it was interesting...

The first pregnancy symptoms and the time of their appearance are listed here:

Temperature drop (dip) Implantation day
Implantation bleeding or spottinga slight staining of a pink or brown color) 8-10 days after ovulation

A positive urine home pregnancy test (HPT)
10-14 days after ovulation/fertilization
An elevated BBT 15+ days without a menstrual period
No period. A missed menstrual period
(amenorrhea) Your period is supposed to come 14-16 days after ovulation
Nausea 2-4 weeks after ovulation
Nipple or breast tenderness 3-4 weeks after conception
Fatigue and tiredness 3-10 weeks after conception
Vomiting 3-10 weeks after conception
Food cravings 1-2 months after conception
Frequent urination Usually after 1-2 months
Softening of cervix 6+ weeks after LMP
Constipation Later

With DD my first sign of pregnancy was food cravings. Then, the day I tested, m/s started and I had that for two weeks.

With this one...wow!!! I had severe gas, constipation, nausea, m/s, tender breasts, and fatigue. I really can't wait for the 2nd trimester to get here because I feel like all I do is pee, puke, and sleep.

5 DPO nose bleed, then i spent the next few days trying to convince myself it was nothing. BFP at 9 DPO...didn't really have many symptoms during tww. My boobs were more tender than usual. I have continued to have nosebleeds (not full on, just like bloody snot). I have had frequent urination b/c the baby is right on top of my bladder right now. My nausea started at night around my 5th week and full on M/S started at 6 weeks. Constipation around 13-15 weeks. I have still have some vomiting and am now 22 weeks. I am having a boy.

Before testing, I only experienced cramping on the left side, increased hunger, and severe gas and bloating. Shortly after, I began experiencing severe fatigue (I can easily sleep 12 hours a night), increased urination (up at night now, even), and PMS like mood swings.

wow!! ...I kind of wish and wished that I had more symptoms. What is m/s?
With my dd (1st and only so far)..I took a blood preg test exactly a week before my period was due and it came back neg. (monday was the tes)...that thurs I had mild spotting...Friday too. I was a bit tired...and had mild cramping...that was it! The following week, I waited two days to be late and then got a positve preg test! AMAZING MOMENT! Want to know something wierd? Well..my dh is a dr...and he took the blood test...after getting a negative result..eh said that there was prob no way I was preg bc the test would have shown it at this point. The night he said that, I had a dream...in my dream (my g-ma who had died)...said to me in such a way THAT SHE TOTALLY WOULD "Erica, if you would just keep your mouth shut and stop obsessing about being pregnant, I will make that happen. I know you secretly want a girl.....and I will do that for you if you promise to name her after me!" ..........also....soooo, wierd...I was working in a pre-school at the time that I had JUST JUST found out i was preg...and I am tiny..and wasn't showing at all. A lil boy came up to me and started tickling my belly. I said "James, what are you doing." he said "tickling the baby in your belly".....I said "how do you know there is a baby in my belly"...he said "bc i can see it." I asked if it was a boy or a girl and he said "girl"....it was!
more wierdness...I was off the thurs i found out i was preg.....went into a little shop where the lady very nicely asked me if i was preg...i said, i guess i could be...she said "don't worry, you don't look it...i just get feelings about things"...later that night is when i tested! A month later i went back to tell her and she kept referrign to the baby as a girl, without even realizing it..and that is what I had!

I am having the same exact nose bleed experience! Ha! It isn't gushing, just like bloody snot every day usually about early to mid morning. I didn't have this with my other two! Congrats on your lil boy!

Holy chills! Amazing! SO did you keep your promise to your grandma? ;p My son has 100% accuracy of predicting the genders of his sister, all of my family and friends' babies. I wonder what he will say about this one...I know he wants a brother...so I am hesitant to ask! But we haven't told the kids yet that we are getting a new baby.

LOL..YEP...I did keep my promise!!!! Do you have any feelings about what it will be? I have never been wrong in my guessing either....like your son. My dad is a sono tech and when my mom was preggo with my brother.....he sono'd her and said it wasa girl (he also has never been wrong with his sono results)..I insisted it wasa boy.....she went into labor and called me and said '"Erica, you have a brother."...I saidn "I told you." lol........she was shocked...she had all pink already...lol, my poor bro..

i hardly post here, but i read everyday...

DS#1: not much, but noticebly eating more and craving wierd things, slept A LOT

DS#2: there was nothing noticeable pre missed AF/BFP

currently i'm 10dpo, i had a crazy dream at 4dpo (i only dream during pg & it's always something outlandish), at 5dpo i devlpd a headache which i have had off/on since, at 6 dpo i noticed that my nips were a lil sore (was in the shower), also at 6dpo i had a couple waves of nausea, yesterday/9 dpo i was out shopping and felt really nauseous & had to eat something & sip a drink, today/10 dpo i have felt queasy all day/night...right now i feel that if i move more than what i'm doing typing this, i may throw up. i won't be surprised if i get a bfp in a few days...if so, maybe this will be my girl

i forgot that at 7dpo i got a wicked stuffy nose/sinus thing that i'm still fighting.
