Does anyone want to play a game?

For curiosity sake - if you want to do so- please post any early pregnancy symptoms from your first (or subsequent) pregnancies. My thought was to get a running list for us 2WW-ers.


Sore boobs (had to sleep in sports bras)
Frequent urination (switched to my DHs side of the bed so I could be closer to the bathroom)
Craved a food a normally don't like (sausage) this was BEFORE I tested or even had an inkling.

Next :)

Re: Does anyone want to play a game?

  • Cramping, spotting. Fatigue. Orange juice cravings, and ice water too. It was a long time ago, but the one thing that really stood out was that my dog was attached to my leg, pretty much from the moment of conception. If I was in the house, he was touching me. Literally touching me. A few days before I tested (which, by back-counting after my first dating ultrasound, was at 10dpo, so we're talking 6,7 DPO) he had been on my ass for a few days already and I told DH I was worried we had a cancer-sniffing dog. I still get my hopes up when he gets cuddly...
  • Tired, like hard to catch your breath tired. Sore boobs/sensitive nips never started for me until 5/6wks.

  • I just remember being exhausted! The rest of my symptoms didn't start until a few weeks later.

  • During the 2ww I think it was basically just lots of cramping with some bloating mixed in. With our miscarriage cycle I also had some spotting that made me think af was coming but then the spotting stopped instead of turning to full-on flow as I expected.
