I hadnt missed a period, it was about a week before and my whole body from head to toe was really sore, like all my skin felt bursied, I thought it was my spray tan but ive never felt that before, so I tested, I was positive. Yay!

Nausea for sure. I woke up the morning after hubby's birthday and feel kind of our if it, like a mild case of hangover. Which is unlikely since I only had one beer the night before on a full tummy. The next morning the same nausea came back so it got me thinking. And then a couple of days later we went to the movie and I just can't stand the smell of popcorn there, so off to the drug store we go :)

My only symptom was a missed period :) I've been symptomless this entire pregnancy! I'm almost 30 weeks.

Really odd cramps, like a pulling sensation in my abdomen I've never felt before. Had them for a full week before I missed my period and tested positive.

Mine for my son who is almost 2 years old now, was the fact that I kept getting cramps like I was gonna start my period and I had alot of wetness down there which would make me think I started, so id go to the bathroom and look but it wasnt blood... and of course I was a week late at the time.. and weird as it sounds.. I told my friends a week before that, that I thought I was pregnant cause I had been having a dreams every night for 2 weeks straight that I was pregnant... sure enough found Out the next day after the million trips to the bathroom to check if I started, that I was indeed pregnant after 3 HPT that day!

For me, was just a missed period. I'll be 27 weeks on Sunday, and haven't had anything.

I thought I had caught my sisters cold- very stuffy nose. Then my hips were extremely achy, they felt the same as after I ran a half marathon, but I had not run in 2 weeks LOL. I also had sore breasts, but that's normal prior to starting my period. This was all about 10 days after conceiving. I knew 1 week later I was prego as I have excruciating painful periods associated with ovarian cysts- but the pain nor period never came! Tested... BFP!!

Mine for both of my pregnancies was dizziness before I even tested. It's the very first sign for both. Very odd. Also the sharp stabbing pains in the breasts/underarms!

Mine was really bad nausea and vomitting.It would start early in the morning and last all day.Just the smell of certain things would make me gag or even vomit.I thought it was signs of my period bc this would happen sometimes before my period so I tried not to pay it attention.Then I thought it was a virus bc it started happening too often so o went to the ER where I found put I was pregnant.Good luck :)
