Early pregnancy symptoms from real women

Common Questions and Answers about Early pregnancy symptoms from real women


Avatar n tn From what I have read, although you may feel different, you normally do not start having any real pregnancy symptoms until the egg implants, which can be from 6-12 days after conception. What do you ladies think???? Also, I had implantation bleeding 1-2 days after we had sex. Do you think this could be possible??? Thanks for your input.....
766586 tn?1284386798 Had my second IUI on July 3 and thought I would share my early pregnancy symptoms so far and hope others will as well. I checked other blogs out there and found the responses to be incredibly helpful, here goes: 1dpiui Started vacation today! Hopefully relaxation will help. Had lots of cramps and bloating. At end of day was very bloated, went for a walk and it was uncomfortable very bloated. Felt like I had to pee all the time. Went to bed, laid down for a while and felt a little better.
Avatar n tn Dear CCF MD, This is so called heart month, where every morning show and news station has a segment on Heart health, most focusing on the differece between cardiac symptoms among men and women. It seems to me I am hearing more and more tragic stories of women dying suddenly from heart attacks, most of them had sought medical attention weeks, days and even hours before collapsing and from what I have been told the majority of them were given a diagnosis of "stressed out".
Avatar f tn Pregnancy symptoms happen due to the build up of hormones created BY the pregnancy. Therefore, most women take time to actually have real pregnancy symptoms. Around 6 weeks to 7 weeks is the average time women start to have pregnancy symptoms. This was like clockwork for me with both of my pregnancies. If you were just newly pregnant and it is right around when you'd normally have your period, it is doubtful you could attribute any of those things to pregnancy in my opinion.
Avatar f tn Dont worry about not having symptoms just yet, your still early. Most women dont get them till 6-8 weeks when you hCG levels get high. My nausea is not bad just enough to notice its there and to not want to eat at times. I feel you on being bloated because im the same way and most my jeans are to tight for comfort right now. Have you been to the doctor yet or had your levels checked? Any craving kick in yet? As for me i want everything that has to do with cheese or pizza.
Avatar n tn I am sooo afraid of having a miscarriage. I really am not having any traditional pregnancy symptoms, which scares me even more (already been to the doc a week ago to confirm pregnancy). As I've posted on here before, I do have cramps here and there (normal AF cramps). I was having some back pain a few weeks ago, but not now. I've had the briefest moments of breast tenderness, but I think I may have been imagining that because I am expecting it. I really don't have any nausea...
Avatar n tn She said about 30% of pregnant women have cramping and spotting in early pregnancy. She said I should only be alarmed if i'm in pain and bleeding heavily. She said I should not have any sex for a week just to make sure the bleeding stops. She made me feel a little better but I'm still so worried that i'm going to lose this baby.
Avatar n tn I am now cramping some more (of course this has been a rough day and it could be from the pelvic, the prodding and pushing, or the vaginal ultrasound). My question is has anyone had these symptoms and gone on to have a good pregnancy? I mean my numbers seem high. With my m/c in Nov my HCG was only 540 and I measured 5w4d on the ultrasound. So 7008 should be good. I just don't know.
Avatar n tn With my first 3 babies I had no symptoms, this is my 4th and I did have symptoms but not until about 6-7 weeks. Feel lucky if you get nothing lol!!
Avatar f tn Now I am 6 days late so it feels real and I feel yucky (but happy!!!!). I am always sleepy from working so much so thats normal for me!
Avatar n tn I just found out I am very early pregnant. I had my blood levels drawn 14-15 days from conception to have progesterone checked b/c I had a very early miscarriage in June. The dr. called and said my hcg was low at 40 and I would probably need to retest. My progesterone was also a little above 40. What range should Hcg be within the first couple weeks of conception?
Avatar n tn Hi Ladies- Has anyone experienced insomnia in early pregnancy? I am 10dpo and for the last 8 days or so I CAN'T sleep! Nothing helps, this has NEVER been a problem for me. Lately I sleep an hour or two here and there but most of the night I'm tossing and turning. Just wondering if it's an early pregnancy symptom.
Avatar n tn Thats why all of the women are saying to stop at the end of the pregnancy so your baby isnt addicted! If i was you i would pay attention to what these women are writing before you start judging.
609800 tn?1221013204 what's the gig with breast feading? do you (the mother) get worse symptoms? does it progress the illness? what's the real deal?
Avatar f tn As for my symptoms, I didn't have any pregnancy symptoms, like the ones you describe, until mid week 5 of pregnancy. I've never had pregnancy symptoms show up b/4 my missed period. but that's just my experience. Good luck!
521037 tn?1212279053 A little bleeding or spotting may occur, due to implantation of the fertilized egg. Some women experience no early symptoms of pregnancy during the first few weeks, while others may experience all of them. A woman's breasts usually seem larger and feel tender as the mammary glands prepare for eventual breastfeeding. Nipples begin to enlarge and the veins over the surface of the breasts become more noticeable. Morning sickness (i.e.
Avatar n tn Every month i have symptoms like breast tenderness,tiredness,digestive problems,bloating and twinges in lower abdomen for about a week prior to my period.All of these symptoms resemble early pregnancy symptoms.Since i have been ttc,it becomes very difficult for me to understand during the two week wait.Kindly share your opinions.
254689 tn?1251183640 Only one embryo was transferred and I don't think I feel any real pregnancy symptoms. Should I already be feeling any of these? The only ones I really have are sore breasts and some fatigue.
Avatar n tn my period finally became normal andfor aybe the past four months i've been feeling sick i've taken pregnancy tests all came up negative.
Avatar n tn if you are not having any bleeding or cramping then it is quite possible that it is just too early to see anything! this is my fourth but first successful pregnancy (everything crossed) i am 23 weeks tomorrow, i was told at 6 1/2 weeks most likely blighted ovum and a week later my babys heartbeat was picked up on a scan! i have a prefectly healthy baby growing inside me.
307487 tn?1269608527 tested wed another positive, but started light pink spotting. all this time i start getting some pregnancy symptoms, so i am thinking i am totally pregnant. thurs still spotting and called the nurse. she said take it easy blah blah. then that night the blood turns more red and i have a couple super tiny clots. so i start freaking out and call the doc first thing fri morning. they tell me to come in. doc says preg test is very faint, can't tell by my cervix since i am so early.
Avatar f tn Hi, I'm 5 weeks 5 days from LMP but, I've no early pregnancy symptoms and I did 4 hpt on 39th, 36th, 32nd and 31st day from LMP but all came negative. I've irregular periods because of hypothyroidism from july, 2010 and now I'm taking levothyroxine(50mcg) for my hypothyroidism and it came normal in October 2010. Then I'm TTC from December 15th 2010. My thyroid came to normal level but my glucose level just elevated to high border.
Avatar f tn From all the info you posted it looks like you ovulated on the 16th- which was perfect to have sex the 15th. Many, many, many women test too early. I have heard about women that test negative, then get a positive after 8 weeks past their next due period. It is hard waiting, but hang in there. It takes a while for the hcg levels to go up. Hope you post a positive soon!
299260 tn?1304219705 ) Guesito- Don't worry about your symptoms, you're still so early! Don't worry, and just try to relax as much as possible! I know it's easier said than done, but I have a good feeling for you! :) Mommyin10- Thanks for the sweet note! I'm so relieved that everything is going so great! :) That's great you feel like AF is coming soon! I'm soooo ready for you to start your IVF and get your sticky BFP! I'm sure it will be here this week since you're not taking progesterone, ya know?
299260 tn?1304219705 ) Having very little to no symptoms, kinda makes me think it didn't work, but we'll see. I'm trying to still think positive. Well I better get ready for work. Keep your fingers crossed for me :) Hope you all have a wonderful Monday...
299260 tn?1304219705 kaylee- it could be the baby moving although it is a ltitle early but some women feel them this early. i didnt feel jaedyn until i was 18 weeks. it felt like popcorm popping in my belly. mrspace- oh my mom totally used the whiskey on the gums when we were teething and stuff, it was the only thing that worked. i love hearing those stories. the things they did back then. hannah- jaedyn is doing much better. his cold is slowly getting better.
299260 tn?1304219705 Just an update: thankfully uneventful. I had my 32 week appointment today and everything looks good. Looks like my last day of work will be September 9 and the hubbie is building the furniture we just bought for Hayden's room. He thinks it's funny that my belly button is completely flat now. I found out that my doctor will be on vacation the week I am due. Boy, I was/am NOT happy about that. I think it's pretty insensitive... Grr. Stacey: BEST OF LUCK TOMORROW!!! YAAYYYYYY!!!!
