For all those expecting and listen to your bodies, what was your earliest signs before the hpt? Just curious.

Hi OP, I am not currently pregnant but have been there original.gif

For me one of the very first signs is when i mop the floor it smells a certain way. Like musty almost mouldy smell. It certainly isnt mould at all lol but just a weird smell that i only ever smell when pregnant.

It's so interesting to see experiences rather than the usual morning sickness, missed periods etc

Oh! Also a week before I found out about my first, I harassed wait staff about why their chicken tasted so fishy! My poor partner!


Haha love it. How soon were peoples symptoms?

Sore bbs.

My bbs never get sore with AF so I thought this might be my first sign. I kept mashing the poor things trying to get some niggle.
I was convinced the cycle had not worked, until at 13dpo I felt it - the niggle was there.
HPT confirmed it.

My earliest pregnancy sign was a positive HPT. No signs before then!The only early symptom after that that felt like pregnancy and not PMS was the nausea a week later.

It felt like I was just about to get my period, nasty cramps.  Like rawr, I would burst hysterically into tears because I thought I wasn't pregnant. I felt the urge to pee a hell of a lot.  Absolutely no desire for sex.

HPT confirmed it.

This, also. I've been squishing my boobs so much I'm now worried I'm sore because of the squishing, not the pregnancy.

I'm still about two days before my period is due, but I've had definate positives for the last three days (totally addicted to POS). I've had waves of nausea for the last couple of days which is unusual for me, I guess. But only really slight. I was lucky with DS and only had a few occasions of MS.

Also, I feel like there is too much saliva in my mouth?! Very strange. Plus, my mouth tastes kinda different. Hard to explain, but it's not necessarily unpleasant. Don't think I had this symptom with DS.

ETA: also just teared up reading one of those "like if you care" copy-and-paste posts on FB. Gosh.
Hoping these are all positive signs and this baby sticks!

With my 3 pregs I knew before The HPT.  .  So a few days before I tested I had pains as if AF was on her way... then after that my breasts began to feel like they were burning, and nipples would hurt to touch, thats when I knew I was pregnant.  The niggling AF pains stayed that way but AF never showed.

My bbs! They're usually fuller while PMSing then the fullness disappears a couple of days before AF. With DS, the fullness isn't dissipate when AF was due, so I did a HPT (1 day prior to AF due) and whammo! UTD!

Darkening and changing of the texture of the areola/nipple areas. Slightly increased size, and increased hunger/appetite/ravenous for the time between ovulation and positive testing. The hunger went away after that.

I knew I was pregnant about 2 weeks before I tested - I waited until I was 1 week late for my period to get a non questionable positive result original.gif

Metallic taste for a day or 2 before my period was due, so for the first time I actually considered I may not be wasting money peeing on a stick!

Welp.... I wanted it so bad, but I was willing to wait until I knew it would be no question... I see a lot of women with questionable results, and I figured a week overdue would either bring me my period, or a really strong positive. I didn't want to have to deal with a BFN... I think I was kind of in denial I was actually pregnant. I kept telling hubby (and close friends at work LOL) I was pregnant but I couldn't look at the test to confirm the result!

I'm not currently pregnant ( I don't think!), but have been 3 times. First sign for me each time was the urge to pee every 10 minutes as well as having tender breasts.

Yes for all 3 i had terrible pain. I have had a previous ectopic (My 1st pregnancy so technically i have had 4) With DD2 it was so bad i even had my mum rush me to the hospital i was so convinced it was another ectopic. She is now a healthy 5 yo original.gif

As far as mucous....It definitely increased.

Oh no! I escaped a coffee aversion and have been drinking it with no problem throughout my pregnancy!

For me it was a flutter in my tummy on day 27 in the morning, had a sip of a favourite white wine that night and thought it tasted funny like mould or fungus and couldn't drink it. I also felt another flutter at dinner that night. The next morning I did a HPT and it was a clear positive!! I usually tested earlier than this but was sick of seeing BFNs but hopeful these were just because I was testing too early, so I decided I'd wait until the answer should be clear one way or the other.
