My symptoms started at 6 weeks, and I am 9 and a half now... Mainly for me it has been sore bbs, and the occasional tummy cramp... now I am just incredibly tired (all of the time), and feel sick at times. I am putting myself in the lucky percentage that I haven't been hit with heavy sickness. Hopefully you will ok, but it is super hard to predict, some days I have been completely fine other days it has hit me more... Lots of good luck wishes! :-)

Looking in hindsight now, I had some symptoms very early on and just didn't realize what they were. I had a horrible acne rash especially on my legs, of all places, around 3 weeks or so....waaay before I knew. I was also noticing that I was more tired and felt sleepy in the afternoons more than usual. Also some indigestion which I never EVER have.

Also, something else that happened around the 3 week mark was a very strange sensation in my lower abdomen. I cannot explain what this was or what it felt like, just some weird sensations down there that lasted maybe an hour or so.

Then about a week before I tested, about 4 weeks...I noticed my boobs were heavier and fuller and tender on the sides. Mood Swings and crying for no reason, also eating a lot of bread and pasta all the time which is odd for me.

Also at 4 weeks dizziness and little waves of nausea here and there, and a feeling of weakness, and feeling very cold. Some indigestion also.

Now in week 5 I have had very mild cramps, tiredness, still craving bread, mood swings, acne, weakness, and nausea isn't bad.

Throughout this whole process so far, I've been taking it very easy. I used to clean Saturday and Sunday, but now I don't have the energy. I get dizzy if I try for too long.

Week 3: Light-headedness, extreme hunger, tiredness
Week 4: Exhaustion! Moodiness, mostly sadness - this has continued throughout, and still always hungry.
Week 5: Breast pain, ligament pain, exhaustion, still starving all the time.
Week 6: A little bit of nausea, breast pain started to subside, still had the appetite, ligament pain, and exhaustion.
Week 7: Ligament pain now and then, nausea got BAD, food aversions started getting bad, but not as tired anymore.
Week 8: Not tired, but started waking up several times throughout the night, nausea got a lot worse, food aversions are getting better though.
Week 9 (I'm only 2 days in): Nipple pain is back! Nausea is a lot better, but I'm getting tired again. VERY sad all the time.

Week 5: Soreness of my breasts, mild period like cramps (ligaments and uterus stretching), food aversions
Week 6: Still soreness of the breasts and them being fuller, crazy bad food aversions, horrible ms, going to the bathroom more often, fatigue, shortness of breath, hungry more often.
Week 7: Breast soreness, food aversions accompanied with ms (morning, afternoon, and night), going to the bathroom more often (started reducing the amount of water before bed, which helps), fatigue, shortness of breath, acne, blue veins are starting to show up on my breasts as well, clothes are getting tight, extreme hunger pains followed my food aversions and nauseousness.

Onto week 8 and hoping for more food cravings then aversions in the next couple weeks.
