Well before I got my BFP I had a total meltdown, I had dizziness and constipation and nearly passed out.

At the moment I have:

tingling boobies - started today
heartburn - started today
I can smell everything - started today
peeing lots - started yesterday

I think the insomnia rom last night was shock hoping to have a better night sleep than last. Haven't got the fatigue yet though im sure it will come.

I'm off for a cruise in 3.5 weeks time so bad timing I think ill have to go get some maxalon tablets just incase!

Hi ladies,

The last few days I have been getting some full on cramping in my stomach and back which is making me feel unwell and this morning the girls have started hurting. I didn't have this with my DS. The fertility clinic said (at my routine) blood tests that the cramping could be from the pregnancy or the progesterone pessories I have to have everyday.

Yeah mine was loose to start with. I'm just getting away with it atm lol I refuse to buy new bras yet though lol

I had a killer headache this morning. I took some panadol and it seemed to settle it a little.

Had an intense dizzy spell today. Felt drunk! By the time my husband collected me from work and we went to the doc my BP was fine. Felt pretty terrible though! Made me panic too

#41 Morton-89

Posted 10 February 2016 - 07:34 PM

Are headaches and dizziness symptoms too? Told you I was green haha I had no idea! In that case I've had symptoms for a few days now. My head seems to spin every time I look up or if I get up too quick. I've had a headache for about 4 days, settles when I take panadol but just keeps coming back. I'm not worried though my water intake has been down a little and I've been checking my bp twice a day just to make sure too :)

#42 FeralRebelWClaws

Posted 10 February 2016 - 07:58 PM

Yeah, I get dizzy when I get up too quickly when I am lying down or if I stand up after bending over. I have to do it slowly.

I just found an aversion! Sundried tomatoes 😷😷😷 feeling so ill haha. Has anyone else had major aversions yet?

#45 dreamfizz

Posted 11 February 2016 - 10:42 AM

not really?! I am getting worried that I don't have any obvious preggos symptoms. Although now I can see how people have no idea they are pregnant (apart from the missed period thing).

#46 Lily-bee

Posted 11 February 2016 - 10:56 AM

Yes I am feeling dizzy during the day even when sitting down.

Still feel nauseous as well. Cramping a bit as well.

No real aversions just yet. Last pregnancy I couldn't stomach anything sweet. Even looking at a picture of a cake in a magazine made me want to vomit.

Starting to dislike the taste of coffee so haven't had any in the last 2 days.

#47 honeybarbara

I'm off coffee!

#48 FeralRebelWClaws

Just food in general... it's 3pm and today I've had... 1.5L of water... that's it.

#49 Morton-89

Posted 11 February 2016 - 03:17 PM

Dreamfizz don't sweat on the no symptoms yet, I haven't had a huge amount and nothing really solidly pregnancy related. I get dizzy spells all the time so not sure if it is pregnancy related or just me. The aversion thing is the only thing I've come across that would be related Because I love sundried tomatoes and bikkies and cheese and now all of a sudden as nearly throwing up eating one haha:) I've gone completely off sweet stuff so not sure if it makes me sick because I just really don't want to eat it. I don't really want to eat anything that isn't plain salted meat and veges or salad haha

#50 Yeahidunno2or3

Posted 11 February 2016 - 03:22 PM

I think maybe a bit of nausea is kicking in.. maybe? Like after I eat, I feel a bit queasy, just slightly. And a little bit of heartburn with it. It's unusual for me, so maybe a new symptom. Boobs aren't as sore, but nipples change by the hour. And man, my sense of smell has gone bananas
