Just wondering what were the first pregnancy symptoms you experienced when you knew you were first pregnant?
I have been getting extreme forgetfulness. And bad mood swings. And I just want to eat anything. Also more vivid dreams. If I am pregnant I would only be about 2 weeks. Would like to know how others felt.

  • Morning sickness was my first symptom. It was pretty bad right from the outset, before I even knew I was pregnant. As it progressed, heartburn was shocking. Sleep disturbance, regular urinating.


  • I didn’t have any symptoms but I knew at 28 days.. Because my period is never late!


  • Cold hands!


  • Very fatigued and extremely moody(more than usual)


  • I got morning sickness from day one which sucked, it’s more normal to get it 2 weeks later. So that trumped any other symptoms I may have had. But when I wasn’t sick I was also hungry. The counting system is silly, because you are 4 weeks pregnant the day you miss your period… Day 1 is the first day of your last period you had. So if you look up any information you would probably be classified as currently six weeks (being 2 weeks after your missed period)


  • I had metal mouth for 2 weeks a constant taste of metal like I was sucking a copper coin which I could only briefly get rid of with toothpaste or drinking milk- not good!


  • Mine was I would only have been 3 weeks and I accidentally ate some celery and enjoyed it. I’m not a fan of celery at all. I took a test the next day. I go to hospital tomorrow to have my baby girl. :)


  • With 2 out of 3 pregnancies i was irrationally angry at everything. I knew it had to be hormal and both times i was pregnant. This time i took a test because I had nausea that wouldn’t ease.


  • With 2 out of 3 pregnancies i was irrationally angry at everything. I knew it had to be hormal and both times i was pregnant. This time i took a test because I had nausea that wouldn’t ease.


  • I have cravings already for ham, cheese, tomato sandwiches. And a few mood swings.
    Could feel fluttering on left side when I thought I was pregnant, confirmed after this, first ultrasound-sonographer said looks like baby has come from left ovary.


  • I just felt different – but spacey. My period was due and didn’t come so did a test and was positive.


  • Very sore breasts, then a missed period. I had a dream where i took a pregnancy test and it came back positive.


  • I first got cramps like period pain then nausea, I just felt different and I knew I had to be pregnant.


  • Dizzy!! I was off balance. Must have been very early cos first test came back negative. Couple weeks later there were to 2 lines!


  • I didn’t find out until missed period. But I then realised this was the reason I was exhausted the few weeks before. I would fall asleep on the bus on my way home from work, get home and go back to sleep, eat dinner and then straight to bed. I would also struggle to get up in the morning, which was not like me at all. After 7 weeks, the morning sickness started – all day everyday for 18 weeks.
