I was just thinking about how I found out I was pregnant September 1st last year. That means that I was already pregnant at this time last year, but I didn't know it yet!
What were your very earliest pregnancy symptoms??
One of my first symptoms was fatigue. This week last year I took several hour long naps on the couch in the afternoon...I thought it was just exhaustion from working so hard!
The symptom that really made me decide to test though, was my boobs were going crazy....bigger, way more sore than the usual pms-sore, and a ton of huge new visible veins in them! I was literally debating testing the last day in August 2011, went home and took off my bra in front of the mirror, and was like holy cow!! What is going ON with my boobs? Test the next morning was positive. :)
I never had a very regular period, so I didn't suspect anything from being "late".
The boobs. Oh, how they HURT!
Well what made me test was the fact that I got a terrible migraines, took one of my meds and was going to take a 2nd because that didn't work and I thought, crap I shouldn't be taking this without testing. So I sent my DH to the store to get a pee stick even though I was sure it would be negative since they have been negative for 7 years... I wanted to make myself feel better about taking the meds. Imagine my shock when it was positive! Oh my lord I am tearing up right now just thinking about it. DH kept asking over and over when I did my hcg shot. He was convinced it was a false positive but I knew exactly when I took it.
I didn't really get any other symptoms until a few weeks later when morning sickness set in full force.

Missed period! Symptoms didn't start for me until a week to 10 days after I knew I was pregnant! I thought I was so lucky! Yeah right! Then the heartburn & morning sickness hit!
I was just looking at a pic of me and DH on his bay last year and thinking that on the night or next few days I got pregnant. It's been an amazing year!
My boobs were my tell tale sign!
I didn't have much before DS (I got some after him which was nice) but they just looked fuller to me. I tested (about 2 days before I was supposed to get AF) and it came back POSITIVE. Sept. 22nd (it was the day before my husbands 30th surprise party) I'll never forget that feeling!
