I know everyone has a different experience, but I was wondering what the first pregnancy symptoms you experienced were?

  • My first sign was sore breasts. I mentioned it to my mum and she was the one who suggested I might be pregnant. She was right.

  • the nausea an then tiredness

  • nausea, and tiredness, and missed period

  • I started feeling tired even before I missed my period. And I just knew…

  • With my 1st it was sore boobs & feeling sick, with my 2nd I had hyper pigmentation on my forehead and feeling tired.

  • I had very sore breasts & I was really sick

  • Yes i was very very sick indeed!!

  • Extremely sick!

  • My breast, kind of fun because now if I think I maybe pregnant I grab my breast.

  • I had virtually no symptoms- the only thing that made me think ‘maybe’ was when I was doing sit ups my stomach felt a little sensitive and I just didn’t feel comfortable doing them so I stopped (other than being late for my period which is nothing unusual for me as I am quite irregular). I was actually booked into the family planning clinic that week because we had been trying for 6 months and no luck- it was at the clinic that I found that I that I was pregnant!

  • As strange as it might sound, (other then the late period) I had a pain in my groin. It felt like it it was being stretched, would come and go for a few days. Happened each time I was pregnant.

  • Mine was that I couldn’t stomach meat for my first baby now 10 and I just had this feeling of actually being well and happy in my emotions and not to be silly but I actually found myself smiling a lot without even thinking about it. Food was another thing altogether and yes was sick but only till realized what foods made me sick if I didn’t eat that then felt great.

  • I just felt unbelievably tired.. tired as I have never felt before..

  • I knew when ovulating, as soon as I had sex I felt like firework, like a bang, difficult to explain, but I knew I was pregnant. 4 children, same with each one. Long time ago but I still remember very well.

  • spotting with my first and being off certain food as well as no period with my second pregnancy- but also cravings…without realising
