What early pregnancy symptoms did you have and when?

I am probably making myself worry and imagining things, so I'm just wondering how early you had pregnancy symptoms and what they where?


When I was pregnant with my LG I knew from about 4dpo and had tender breasts from about 1 week, even before +ve tests.
I had unprotected sex with my partner 2 days ago, I am on the pill but missed a couple as I forgot them while I was away. I havnt been able to get the MAP as I have been away and in work.


This month will probably feel like a very long month, so looking for distractions/advice.

  • Thank you Claire_A87 I understand that it might be upsetting for some people but it wasn't meant to be hurtful. I do understand that It can be difficult for some people to TTC, and I wouldn't set out to upset them.

    I am simply asking for advise and opinions just like anyone else posting on here.

  • Random acts of puking which after I found out I was preg fell into place suddenly. That was probably a month in though at least.

    The really early symptoms of pregnancy (sore boobs etc) are generally the same as those you may experience in the days leading up to your period, so experiencing a symptom can be due to pregnancy or your impeding period. I think trying to read the symptoms (whether you are hoping to be pregnant or hoping not to be) is generally not very helpful. You're better off waiting and doing a test.

    Do you know where in your cycle you were when you had unprotected sex? That may have a big impact on whether or not a pregnancy is likely.
    Common sense?...There's nothing common about sense!

    Well I felt sick before I missed my period with all my pregnancies. I had bad morning sickness and it always started so quickly. I remember going to the doctor for my six week check up after having miscarried and telling him I thought I was pregnant and he dismissed this but four weeks later went back and I was and had been then.

    I had sex on day 10, but don't know when I ovulate. I have an app to track and apparently have 17 days till my next period is due.

    I think it might be better if you delete this post.

    Done - very typical of me to be accidentally offensive whilst trying to be the opposite :o - I've just seen how these posts can be jumped on & taken in the wrong direction, & didn't want that for the OP. Sorry OP! It very genuinely wasn't a dig at you.

    For me, I got out of breath tying my shoe laces one morning! Then the next day my head just felt strange, I don't know how else to describe it other than my neck didn't feel strong enough to support my skull. Weird I know!

    Don't worry, no offence was meant, sometimes its just hard to see a situation from 'the other side'. Thanks for sorting it.

    Don't worry I didn't take it that way, I know how it is hard to express the way you are trying to say something when its all just typed out.

    I had severe afternoon/evening nausea (never morning sickness) and extreme tiredness from just over 2 weeks after conception (so when my period would have been due). DS1 born 24 years ago.


    I used to start to feel sick from 3pm until I went to bed - but (possibly fortunately) I was so tired that I'd literally zonk out on the sofa as soon as I'd done tea and sleep until bed time (then all night).


    Oh, and the only things I could face eating after 3pm were jacket potatoes and boiled eggs (not necessarily at the same time!).


    Following year, same feelings - without the luxury of sleeping all evening lol. But I learned to eat something at 2.45pm as the nausea was really hunger! DS2 is now 23....

    Really tired everything felt like an effort. I used to walk daughter to school and remember that being such an effort when usually I am quite active. After first eight weeks everything ok.
