Well symptoms vary.  I had to pee more frequently, my boobs were extremely sore, more so then when you get AF, my abs were sore.  I was very very tired and hungry even right after I ate.  Extremely irritable, like I really hated everyone.  I didn't get heartburn until later on in the pregnancy and the nausea didn't set in until I was about 7 or 8 weeks.  Headaches also came later when the blood flow increased.  

It's really hard to tell because AF symptoms are pretty much the same as pregnancy symptoms.  Some women don't even have any symptoms at all except for a missed period.  It may be too early to get a positive, although, I was only a day late and tested positive.  Try taking another test with first morning's urine.  But try to wait it out until your period is really late.  Good luck.

I started cramping like 9 days before AF was supposed to come. That is how I knew that I was pregnant for sure. I also had sore bbs. I never got morning sickness. Being tired was a big thing for me too. I tested at 10dpo and got a + on a dollar tree test.

I read your post...what do you need help with?  There isn't really much I could tell you because it's really all about a waiting game at this point.  I suggest you wait until your af is late and then take a test.  AF symptoms and pregnancy symptoms are so similar that it's really hard to tell.  Unfortunately our mind plays tricks on us when we are waiting.  

On another note, not judging because I don't like to do that but why would you want to have a baby at 17 years old.  I'm only asking because I'm 30 years old and my son kicks my a**.  I love him to death but it's really hard work and very expensive.  I know that at 17 I wasn't even close to being ready to take care of another person.   I can't even go to the movies unless I have a babysitter.  I don't sleep all that much and I have to work full time in order to afford all the toys and clothes and health insurance.  It's really hard.

I am 17 too and I dont want to have children but I think I am pregnant too. Do you live with your parents? What would they think if you ended up pregnant? That is what I am scared of the most is that I wont be accepted as part of my family anymore. It's not necsecarily the fact that I got pregnant it is who I got pregnant by and how young I am. My parents are racist and I am not. I totally believe that you should go where your heart leads. Do you think it's bad to mix races?

Sleepiness and Food aversion! For about 2 weeks I would get home from work and CRASH! Nap for a couple of hours and still was able to sleep through the night! (I thought it was b/c of daylight savings) and my birthday was on a friday and DH made me my fav cake but I was sooooo tired I couldn't stay awake long enough to eat it but he wanted me to at least try a little piece so I did and it wasn't very good to me! I couldn't understand why! I found out the monday after that I was expecting! LOL

i've had so many symptons too, the nausea, breast tenderness, cramps, headaches, tiredness, irritabillity. there are so many, it is irritating more because i don't even know if i am i have had about 9 or so tests over the past 4 or so weeks. i have an ultrasound  soon and the doc said it could be a cyst.
if you truly think you are pregnant wait a week or so and then test again.

I didn't know I was pregnant until Nov 7. I was on the pill, so when I had implantation bleeding, I thought it was my pills. Since I started taking them my periods were very light and only a couple days. Sometimes just spotting. BUT I remember Halloween night especially when we took our then 2 yr old trick or treating and I made one block and my back was killing me and I was so sleepy. I asked my husband if he minded if I went home and he could proceed with our other two kids. I had also around that time changed the times I took my pills to night from day because I was nauseated in the morning. Which I blammed on my pills. I had even scheduled and appt. with my Ob/gyn to change my pill to one that didn't make me sick. My appt. was scheduled a week after my expected period which should have been Nov 5. When it didn't come I tested Nov7 for giggles and it was a BFP. I then had to call and cancel my other appt and change it to an Ob appt......Now here I am ready to pop and day now. I would have to say my first signs were fatigue and morning sickness.

I had menstral type cramps 3 days before AF was due.  When I was 5 days late decided to test and it was a BFP.  The cramps went away about 5 days after AF was due. So I cramped about 8 days straight.  My boobs were sore too.  I didn't get m/s until 6.5 weeks and that went away at about 11 weeks.

My symptoms were I had none. Only sore BB's.. see, normally I'd have migraines, and cramps.. NO DICE.

I had neither. As a matter of fact the missing headaches was my first clue, I had suspected I was pregnant or at least hoped I was so I lowered my dose on my med's then stopped them. normally my headaches would return within 3 days but this time it didnt. so a week later, I tested... and BFP (2 days after missed AF)

The first early symptoms I had were headaches, and AF cramping. Although I never had AF due to being on depo I still had the symptoms as if I was going to get AF. Hubby had a vasectomy so I didnt think it would happen lol.

I was taking a HPT once a month even on depo just to make sure it was working as I have gotten pregnant on all other b/c methods. My final test came out positive.

I started having morning sickness 2 weeks later.

I have had everything you can think of as far as symptoms, but as a reminder everyone's symptoms of pregnancy are different. There are *general* symptoms of pregnancy that happens to most women such as missed AF, heartburn, fatigue, cramping and nausea. But other symptoms can occur, such as some people getting nose bleeds only when pregnant, or my main symptoms that almost no one has, and that is losing feeling in my toes lol.

I had sore nipples about a week before my period was due, I also had really bad AF cramps at about the same time and tehy lasted days. I knew  was pregnant cos that is def not normal for me. At the same time my nipples starting hurting I had those mongomery's tubercles become really prominent.

Actually, I knew the couple days before I got really sore boobs that I may have been because I had a really unsual craving for chocolate - I felt like I would not survive unless I got some (very very unusual!!). I bought a family sized block and demolished heaps of it before having to stop myself, normally I would be able to eat 2 rows and then have to stop cos I'll feel sick, but not that time!! It was my body's way of telling me I need calcium!
