    Veiny boobs - not really sore
    Heartburn
    Bloated tum
    Weeing loads at night
    Nausea
    Emotional

    Just wanted to share.

    Well hun with this one im not there yer but i kept diaries with all the others and at 8/9 weeks i was tired and emotional, craved water and all foods lol and had a fuzzy (forgetful) brain but other than that not to bad.

    The Boob pain came and went and i got really sharp pains in my ovaries when i stood up but that lasted all the way through my pregnancies.

    The only other symptom i had was i suddenly couldnt stand heights/fast moving cars/crossing the road.....its like i had a hightend sence of danger or somthing.

    I have all those too,I had tiredness from the get-go and it wiped me out.
    My boobs were the first sign I knew I was PG.
    At 8 weeks they settled and this week they have returned in force!
    Nausea,tiredness,stabbing pains in my boobs and now I have that tickly feeling in my pelvis where baby is,like someone/something is tugging in there :)

    Oh and I am best friends with the toilet! LOL

    Fatigue is the most promenent sxs I have, I have food aversions, veiny bbs, headaches that either come and go, or turn into full blown migraines, crabby crabby crabby!!! I havent had any nausea or vomitting, but If I eat acidic foods, I get stomach cramps, and I feel sorta healthier because I am eating more nutrient enriched foods, so my skin and hair are much better feeling and looking! that's about it so far.

    I'm 7 weeks as of yesterday and my symptoms are :-

    exhausted (not just tired, completely shattered!)
    heavy boobs
    heartburn
    nausea
    weeing lots but only during the day so far
    restless sleep
    bloated stomach
    emotional
    headaches - occasionally turning into a migraine
    certain smells make me heave - like cigarette smoke, vile!!!

    That's all I can think of just now! Think that's plenty though :rofl:

    Hi hun. My symptoms have also seemed to have calmed down a bit from the first couple of weeks, but maybe it's just I'm used to them?
    I would say the main ones are:
    gas
    constipated
    vivid dreams
    weeing lots at night
    v emotional -up and down like a rollercoaster

    The nausea comes and goes now, mostly just if I'm hungry. Boobs come and go too but they're a lot bigger, I'm busting out of the new bras I bought. Pains in uterus come and go too.

    Oh, and I forgot to mention I have a severe case of pregnancy brain!

    I'm 9 weeks 1 day and my symptoms seem to be coming and going.

    I feel tired all day, nauseous and have sore boobs. Oh and sometimes when driving I have the urge to start crying, but manage to stop it. I don't know why I feel like that tho.

    Edited to add: Am suffering from a mild case of constipation, which is very unusual for me as I have IBS (TMI - go the other way!!) and I have itchy nipples.

    I had really sore boobs up until last week, then I told my acunpuncturist, she stuck in a couple of needles and this week they're better!!!

    I have mild nausea occasionally and have an aversion to strong smells - like cigarette smoke - so yuk, car fumes, strong perfume and I can smell people's breath on the train - gross. Before I found out I was pregnant I had one day when I was with my OH and I kept saying, oh that smells like that, and this smells like that and it was really odd - then I read that can be 1 of the first signs of pregnancy - seems my heightened sense of smell hasn't stopped. Plus I'm getting an aversion to my toothpaste - which is awful because I use that toothpaste because I can't stand others.

    I had loads of pulling pains for a couple of weeks, like there was something holding onto the top of my fallopian tubes and hitching them upwards. Thankfully that has gone now.

    Hi ya,

    I am now 8w3d.

    Yes I am going through most of the same as everyone else.

    - Dont feel like eating and feel sick until I eat something
    - Very thirsy
    - Most nights in bed by 9/9.30pm
    - Peeing more at night
    - Emotional (for instance I cry when I hear my favourite Prince songs haha)
    - Boobs grown, feeling heavy and sore if anyone hugs me tight. The tenderness comes and goes, but maybe I am just getting used to it
    - Out of breath very easy - for instance if I climb 2 flights of stairs, or walk quickly

    :hug: to all :)

    I agree completely... I love that we can share these... it doesnt make me freak out as much when I get some strange symptoms, haha.

    Good luck with your scan Tuesday ;):hug:
