Early Pregnancy Symtoms???

A question for all you moms out there. What were your very first symptoms? Did you know you were pregnant before missing a period?
I still have 1-1.5 weeks before aunt flo is due, but I just feel off. Tired, cranky, bloated, like usual PMS, but it seems early and just a bit different. Plus I can smell everything! I could smell my gelding peeing across the paddock!
I am trying not to get worked up and trying not to create symtoms that aren't there.
So, when/how did you first get the inkling you were pregnant?

My first inkling was swollen/sensitive breasts. Heightened sensitivity to scents came later and was more prominent in my second pregnancy. Every person and every pregnancy are different. Good luck!

Wait for your period, or not. The only way to tell is by peeing on a stick. Stressing about it can make your period late, or not come at all. I have thought I've had symptoms, stressed and then had a very late period.. and as its late you stress even more!

I can't remember anything different before my missed period other than what seemed like period symptoms. I just remember feeling exhausted all the time then I had cramps where my uterus was stretching, feels like period cramps. Only way to know though is taking a test in all honesty.

Thanks all. I know it's best just to be patient and wait until I can take a test. But waiting isn't my strongest skill ;) Luckily I am going to Vegas for work next week, so that should take my mind off of things for a bit.

Hunger. When I sat down in McD's after ordering 2 Double Cheeseburgers, large order of fries, large chocolate shake, large drink, 2 apple pies with ice cream to the side and then wanted a Big Mac?


And about 2 weeks too.

I just found out I was expecting this week, I suspected because two weeks before aunt flo was due in because my breasts were very tender, every little thing made me cry and I was randomly craving pan au chocolate. Tested last week and sure enough, positive.

That is some massive hunger, Palomine!
Well, I am officially late today, but being a few days late is also "normal" for me from time to time so I am about to go to Vegas, try to forget about it, then see what happens when I come home Friday.
Thank you all again for sharing your experiences.

I was talking to my best friend on the phone and told her how my boobs were sore and wondering if it was just my imagination but seemed bigger too. She told me those were signs of pregnancy and what do you know, I was! I was unbelievably exhausted too but it was the height of the show season so I thought it was because I hadn't had a day off in like 8 weeks. Nausea came later, along with a few mood swings or cravings here and there. but it was mainly the sore chest and tiredness that came very early on.

Get one of the dollar-store pregnancy tests and just set your mind at ease. They're literally the same ones that doctors use and they have to work the same way as the expensive kind. If you're already late you should be able to detect a result by now, especially if you might be about 3 weeks along.
