I start peeing alot, i get dizzy, anxiety, and get very tired. I also get the cramps too. I read that it could be the ligaments stretching. And i buy my prego tests at the dollar store. They are just like the ones at the dr's offices and have always worked for me. And they're only a buck. It's way worth it. I just took a test last wednesday, a day before my missed period and was a positive. :) Good luck!

It really depends because there are many symptoms. Talk to your doctor. he can do a urine sample as well as a blood test. I began feeling very sick with my daughter. I got sick a couple times but just felt naucious as i did with my son.

I was weird. I had noticed my belly was getting hairy which was unusual for me. Shortly afterwards, different foods would make me sick, I couldn't stand for long periods of time, then finally I got sick, took a test, it was negative so I got checked out after my bi-polar meds re-acted with my body and they saw I was going to be having a baby =] ♥ (This was in the period of 2 months...)It's different for everyone though.

It varies for each person and pregnancy. The main ones are morning sickness, missed or light period, cravings, mood swings, and weight gain. Swollen feet and lower back pain are pretty big, too, but some people don't show symptoms at all.

I think you should see a doctor there is such thing as ectopic pregnancy where the embryo gets lodged in the filopian tube and normal pregnancy shouldnt be painful. My cousin had an ectopic pregnancy. She went to the doctor and he told her she was constipated and gave her a laxative and sent her home! She was in hospital the next day with internal bleeding from her filopian tube bursting. They had no idea what was wrong and she went into theatre and she bled out 3 times before they found the source of the bleeding. My advice. do a home preg test and go to the doc asap

Well when I found out I was pregnant I was already 7 weeks. My boobs never hurt but I did know something was up when I was a few days late for my period but I felt like I was going to start. So about the 3rd day of my miss period I went and bought 6 test and took them all..lol They all said I was pregnant.. Before I found out though I was only have a two day period and took a test and it showed I was not pregnant so that is why I waited till my next period to take another test and when the next period was suppose to come and it never did that is why I went and got more test. Now how I found out I was already 7 weeks.. I went to the ER and told them I was having stomach pains but I had not started and they did a urine test on my and then when they told me I was pregnant they wanted to do a ultrasound to make sure everything was ok cause my stomach was hurting and they saw the baby and did measurements and told me I was 7 weeks.. Anyways everybody is different but if you want to be pregnant I hope you get what you want and congrats

Tired, hungry, moody, pains like period pain, back ache, headaches, constipation, nausea and having to go to the toilet frequently are the most common but everyone and every pregnancy is different you may have all or none of these symptoms.

Like the others have said, different for everyone. If me and my husband hadn't been trying I would NEVER have known. I had no sickness, no soreness, not heartburn, or any of the other "normal" symptoms. I found out i was pregnant a week before christmas and didn't start showing any signs until after new years and the only thing was I was SUPER tired. had to take a nap after work almost every day, and I had never taken naps before. oh and I was always peeing! I couldn't go an hour without having to go. Just take a test, that will be your best bet... good luck!

oh and be prepared if you are, i still don't know why they call it 'morning sickness' because i was sick from the time i woke up till i went to bed and sometimes i would wake up to throw up. and that lasted all nine months, lol. not trying to scare you but just be prepared, it hits some women super hard.

I had to pee alot!! Lol I was constantly going to the bathroom. My period started like normal then it suddenly stopped 2 and a half days in. I was also tired and felt very foggy. About a week after the positive test I also noticed my lower abdomen felt rock hard

i never had regular periods, but i knew something was up because i just didn't feel like myself! i finally took a test when my husband had a mushroom swiss burger for lunch and the smell of it was making me sick! i was also tired more than normal! i would say just take a test! i called the pregnancy test company cuz it came up positive and my husband was told he couldn't have kids! they said if you take the test correctly that any postive result is true! the only way the test could be wrong is if its a false neg because you don't have enough of the hormones present yet or if you take the test wrong!

My period wasn't even late yet and I knew I was pregnant I had heartburn all the time it didn;t matter what I ate or if I even ate anything at all. Then my boobs got huge and hurt really bad and then I was sick. Take a test!

not to sound mean...but kind of wondering why you are on this site if you are not a mom, and don't even know what the symptoms of pregnancy are. Just wondering.

And I don't remember why I took the test that confirmed I was pregnant. I don't remember feeling bad, maybe just tired?

it could just be caused by stress. i was constantly peeing, tired, moody,had morning sickness,but not right away.my breast started to hurt somewhat. i started to feel little bit hunger faster as well. it varies with everyone though.

I started having really tender boobs a lot earlier than I usually had them before my period... usually they would start hurting a few days before, and when I got pregnant, they were hurting at least a week before my period... Also, I got a head cold.. yeah, I've heard that it could be a symptom, and thats one that I had... real stuffy nose... also, I started getting tired, but that was after I took a test and found out for sure I was pregnant :)

hey i was like that in my 1st pregnancy jus what your describin.Had cramps as if you where going to have period but never came i was a bit more hormonal too. My 2nd was practically the same although i knew i was pregnant before i done a test i had the same feeling but its easier to tell if your trying for a baby as the possibility is that you are. wait for another 4 days and do test, best of luck with it:)

I probably wouldn't have known I was pregnant if:

A) We weren't trying for a baby and B) If my cycles weren't bang on all the time.

I didn't have any morning sickness, dizziness, wasn't very tired, no heart burn, and smells didn't bother me.

The only thing I did notice was that my breasts were starting to hurt/feel tender, and when I missed a whole cycle completely, I figured "yup, preggo" and sure enough I was, lol

some of my symptoms didn't pop up until I was at the 3 month mark, and that was just vertigo and headaches.

It's always different for everyone else, even testing 5 days after a missed period can still say "NO" on some tests because the pregnancy hormone is so low.
But doing a pee test in the morning has the highest count of the pregnancy hormone :)

My first clue was that my breasts and nipples got really tender and sore, before my period was late. I had no nausea, and actually lost some weight for the first 3 months. The only other thing was I got really tired and fatigued easily until my 2nd trimester.

I figured out I was pregnant at a few weeks when I started to feel cramps like I was going to start my period but knew I wasn't going to start since I had just gotten off of it a few weeks ago and my cycle is 25-28 days and it only had been less than 14 days. I waited till it was time to have my cycle and it never came so I took a test and it was positive.

I HAD to sleep 12 hours a night or i would be extra moody =)

i knew i was pregnant right away... my periods have always been exactly regular, i even knew about what time i was gonna start in the day.... and then it didn't come for 3 days, and i had sore swollen boobs and i was sick!! like really sick!! couldn't keep anything down, and smells were getting to me that never bothered me before, so before i started to get excited i went to the dollar store and got a really cheap test... and like 6 postive test results later i was sure... lol

The only reason I had any inkling that I was pregnant is because when I went to do crunches I ended up with SEVERE abdominal muscles aches lol. When I told the boyfriend how weird it was that I was so sore from some crunches he immediately said *you're preggers.*

As you probably already have heard, it is different for everybody. For me, my boobs were really sore, I was tired ALL the time - I couldn't get through the day without a nap, cravings - I wanted chocolate milk non-stop, that's ALL I wanted to drink, ate a lot - I eat a lot anyways, but right before I found out I would eat all the time & not get full, or eat eat eat & be hungry 30 mins later, and I got heartburn for the first time in my life! But lucky for me, no morning sickness! :o) These were my symptoms. Hope they were helpful!

My first sign was sore breasts & then feeling sick. If you aren't sure, rather take a test. Coz if you aren't pregnant & you're not feeling 100%, then there maybe something else that you need to get checked out. A test is quick a simple & it will put you out of your misery.

I actually was 1 week late and had cramps so I thought I was going to start everyday and never did. My friend actually told me to take a test and find out so I did. It was + positive. A couple weeks later (by then I was like 5 - 6 weeks along I started getting sick and light headed.

Yeah I also started taking more naps. I didn't get cramps though; I usually get those before my period. You might want to take a pregnancy test if you want to make sure.

Well it's different for every woman. In my first trimester (I still didn't know I was pregnant) I had morning sickness and my nose bled uncontrollably. I also got dizzy really easy and when we went on a family trip I ended up fainting while in line for food. But after 4 or 5 months it slowly went away and I didn't really feel anything afterwards except pain on my side while walking because she was too heavy for me. ^_^
