What are early pregnancy symptoms?

Okay so I just want to know what everyone’s EARLY pregnancy symptoms were/are and what was the earliest you started to think you were pregnant… as I’ve been cramping, feeling nauseas, having back pain and pain under my armpits, as well as a metal kinda taste in my mouth and frequent urination but it’s too early to take a test just yet so I wanted to know about everyone else and their experiences. :blush:


I thought I ate something bad or had the flu at first. I was getting sick for days on end. And then my breast started to get sore so I took a test. Went to the doctor and I was 8 weeks🙃

I had a sinus infection and a uti,went back 2 weeks later cause i was cramping thought thw antibiotics of the uti didnt work… Found out i was like 5weeks and my uti was long gone also my nipples hurt like hell constantly

I didn’t even realise i was pregnant til i was 10 weeks, and i only had heartburn the day i found out(and i thought it was because I’d had a bacon sandwich😂) its strange cause i literally had no nausea or anything until after I’d got a positive test😂

I couldn’t sleep on my belly and I’m a belly sleeper. I started waking up and peeing in the middle of the night. I was having slight pains in the bottom of my ribs then my nauseousness started. I tested 7 times and it took me having to go to the doctor to find out I was pregnant. But all the symptoms pointed right to being pregnant and couldn’t get a positive test.

I felt nauseous, had breast tenderness, extremely bad heart burn, and had frequent urination which was rare for me.

Before any of the other symptoms, I got extremely tired…to the point I had to lay down while at work. Co worker said I was pregnant
Sure enough!

Smells were weird and I never got my period.

Nauseous from early on.

Sore breasts & morning sickness

Eating EVERYTHING in sight and cramping.
I knew I was pregnant at about 2 weeks and had to wait two weeks until my missed period and test the day I was supposed to miss and it was faintly positive and called and made my first appointment the day of my missed period. We were trying so I was waiting and looking for any symptom of being pregnant, and those were the first 2 I noticed.

I never did. I could have been one of those people on I didn’t know I was pregnant. I didn’t even get a belly. I also lost 20lb by mistake.

With my daughter, I was crampy and vomiting (but the vomiting wasn’t a dead giveaway because I have ulcers, a hiatal hernia, and cyclic vomiting syndrome) and that was it. I was a day shy of my second trimester when I found out.

With my son, I was peeing a lot, crampy, and fatigued… I was 4 weeks when I found out.

The sore as hell breast, and cramping, and headaches, and heartburn, and felt really gassy/bloated… just found out a week ago I’m expecting and I found out a day before misses period… now this may sound weird but dreams also my dreams get more vivid and stranger… I actually had a dream the night before I found out about a baby turns out with was my baby and my sister in law’s baby (shes do in a few weeks)

I had flu like symptoms with my first two pregnancies before I took a test and then with my current pregnancy no real symptoms I just knew. I did have some cramping I guess thinking I was starting my period soon but that wasn’t the case.

Extreeeemely exhausted.

I was puking every day at work. Food made me so nauseous and being pregnant didn’t even cross my mind until a friend told me to get a test. What do ya know? I was 13 weeks pregnant and my boy is now 11 weeks old.

I found out 6 days before my period was due . It was same symptoms of getting my period " bloated , sore breast "

I had really bad cramping in the lower/middle of of my abdomen, and very tender/sore breasts, felt like a bad period was on this way. I also got a really bad cold/flu symptoms. My nausea didn’t start until I was about 7-8wks preggo.

Peeeing! All the time!!

thought i had the flu :mask: i’m a big girl so when i didn’t want to eat, i knew something was up :joy::joy::joy:


For me, I -always- had to pee, like full bladder every 15 min, and my nipples felt like they were on fire. It was awful.

Missed period by more than a week and a pregnancy test…

My boobs were REALLY sore.

first losing weight ,missed period tender breasts eating more than normal stuff normally dont eat. and found out about 6weeks along with all 3 my girls. no morning sickness though.

About a week and a half before my period I knew. I made amazing chicken for everyone, everyone loved it, I took 2 bites and puked it up. Kept feeling like trash. Took a test a few days later with light positives. Now I’m 27 weeks pregnant with twins which was why I had sickness so soon lol

This pregnancy, I knew 3 days before my missed period because of EXTREME fatigue. I was either constantly sleepy or asleep.

My boobs were super sore and super gaggy also had more discharge then normal… started feeling this way week after I believe I ovulated… because I was moving on the dec 16th 2017 and I was having cramps and just felt off and then continued to feel that way… found out I was pregnant dec 27th🤷‍♀️ so morning sickness and symtoms started pretty quick for me.

My dog I seriously had no ‘symptom’ of pregnancy but my pug would headbutt my tummy softly and lick at it every chance he got :woman_shrugging: I had a suspicioun about 2 weeks before I missed my period because of his behavior

Really bad lower back pain, super sore boobs and would have breakdowns more often

If you’re too early to test, you’re too early for frequent urination to be a symptom. You don’t get that until the baby gets bigger and begins to apply pressure on your bladder.

My first time, my period was late

I spotted. I have never spotted in all my years of having my period and I spotted.
Something just didn’t feel “right” around the time it happened. Also, i cried. A lot. About everything. And I mean everything. Like a sad looking dog waiting to be let inside made me tear up

With this pregnancy the only symptoms I had wore sensitive and sore nipples. I was about a week late when I took my first test, it came back positive but I couldn’t believe it so I took 3 more before going to the doctor. The reason why I couldn’t believe it is because my husband and I were told his chances of having kids of his own were pretty much non existent, we found out I was pregnant with our son (3 1/2 yrs ago) and we have been trying for over a year to get pregnant but my cut off date was my 35th birthday…I found out a week before my birthday that I am pregnant.


My boobs hurt SO bad! And even the thought of most foods made me sick to my stomach.

I had to pee literally every 10 minutes only pregnancy was the last thing on my mind. I told a coworker/friend I need to see a doctor I’m worried something is wrong. First thing she said was “you might be pregnant” took a test that night and boom two lines lol. I’m due August 25th

I thought I had the flu.

Sore boobs with my daughter found out at 2 weeks along with her and missed period with my son found out at 4 weeks with him

Tender breasts. And when I say tender I mean my shirt brushed my nipple and I cried tender. :disappointed_relieved:

Metal taste, that’s it

My first symptom i noticed was this expanding like feeling with my thighs. It was pretty painful- no amount of stretching really relieved it. Then a bad upper back and shoulder pain.

None until I was about 4 months. Breasts got large and hurt so much I went to the doctor cause it scared me. I had periods just not the flow as usual. Allot of tension in our marriage so ignored that. That was it.

I could not touch my breast at all, light cramping and light spotting

I thought I was pmsing and about to start my period both times. Cramping both times but no period. The first pregnancy, i was 5 days late and took a test at 3 in the morning. My second time, my friend jokingly asked if I was pregnant because I said I was day late and really emotional and I took a test on my lunch break and turned out I was pregnant. I was SUPPPPER overemotional both times.
