Let us guide you along week-by-week!)
My ms started around 5ish weeks- and comes and goes, although it's not too bad at all. Tiredness around 5 weeks too- then the mood swings have been ever so impressive since around 4 weeks :)
Exactly 6w with DS. Before that, I just felt like I had PMS (sore boobs, crampy, ect)
This time I had a stomach virus at 5w, so I'm not sure exactly when my m/s started. This time, no sore boobs but some cramping
They say that most of the traditional symptoms start around 6 weeks for most, but some start earlier. I had sore boobs and light cramping right around 4 1/2 weeks, but didn't start feeling sick until halfway through week 7. Just be grateful they haven't started yet! Even feeling sick doesn't make it real for me... I'm holding out for my 1st appt on monday for it to seem real.
My symptoms started before I got my BFP. But this is my second, so I don't know if that is why. When I was pg with DS, I believe it was about 6-7 weeks in I had morning sickness.
For the last week, I've had low energy/out of breath easy, sore boobs, lower back pain, cramping, and some nausea. Oh, I am also bloated BIG time!
With DD, I escaped with only nausea. I am hoping to get that lucky this time around!
I had some symptoms before my BFP yesterday.. sore boobs, more tired than usual, and I was using the bathroom more than usual.
For me m/s kicked in at 6w3d.
Some people never really experience 'morning sickness.' I know people that lived off saltines for 5 weeks and some people who never had an ounce of nauseau.
I started my 6th week today and so far ::knocks on a lot of wood:: I've had nothing. I feel great. Trying to stay mentally positive, too.
I am 25 weeks pregnant and I live with another couple whom is about a month ahead of me.
She has had like no symptoms (having a boy), and seriously the only reason why she knew she was pregnant was because her periods are normal and missed one - tested - positive - and she's starting to nest recently - but other than that she's still her normal self.
Me on the other hand - I have irregular periods so a late one wasn't anything (due to issues with the BC shot over a year ago) ... my body changed instantly looking back. Hormones shifted within 2 weeks. And my boobs were sore and started to grow already. I was getting more tired and sick like I was getting a cold (mind you I got preg in the middle of June). Around 6 weeks I got diagnosed with bronchitis... and after the meds I still didn't feel right. Around 7 1/2 weeks my m/s truly hit (but not at max power yet). 8 weeks I took a home preg test and man was that sucker positive. And for a week straight I was not able to keep anything (including crackers and water) and thankfully my dr gave me Zofran. My severe m/s just recently faded. But my body is having the worst time adjusting to having a baby inside and I keep getting terribly sick. And I've been getting the RLS, and a ton of different symptoms but I had a rough start.P.S I'm having a girl.
Now I told both sides showing that you could easily be flying through this like it's nothing, or your body could have trouble adjusting. We're both the outliers of the chart. You could easily be inbetween our types of pregnancies - remember there is no wrong way to feel a pregnancy. Like even though she is doing perfectly well, my bf got to feel our child move before the husband of the other couple felt his child move. And it was extremely early for him to do so as well (18 weeks).
Sorry it's a long comment, but I wish you the best for your pregnancy.
This is my first pregnancy, got a BFP on Thanksgiving :)
I have had slight symptoms for just about two weeks. Cramping, bloating (ugh..), mood swings, and extremely tired!!
