    Thumbs up Interesting early pregnancy sign before my BFP.

    Hi Ladies,
    I got my BFP a few days ago, which was funny as I didn't feel all that different. The one big thing for myself was extreme thirst! I am not normally a big drinker but in my 4th week of pregnancy before my BFP I was craving water, juice, milk...basically any fluid I could get my hands on. I understand now that this is a side effect of your body increasing its blood volume by up to 50% to prepare for pregnancy I also felt no emotional signs (Im normally a big sooky la la before my period) and just felt indifferent. I thought this may be helpful for those of you looking for early pregnancy signs. Good luck to all of you.

    Footgirl :-)

    I had the same thing, I was guzzling juice like crazy. I usually hardly drink juice!

    I had that for ages in the early days, it's perfectly normal.

    Congratulations Footgirl!!

    I was so thirsty from about week 5, could not get enough water or juice (until I couldn't stomach fluids from about week 8). Around week 4 I had every symptom of af and thought that was what I was getting until I poas - the symptoms were like a magnified version of normal - sore boobs, cramps, bloating, muscle aches etc.
