    Cramping was my main symptom before I got a bfp and also my boobs felt like they were having mini let downs.

    Same here. I'm only just over 5 weeks but fairly constant cramping (not bad, just uncomfortable and worse when I'm sitting down) and just the past few days really tender boobs. Quite bloated as well, which is very unusual for me. I'm I my just starting to get overwhelmed by the smell of some foods but I haven't been sick.

    I have all of the 'ugh' stuff this time around..
    Morning sickness, sore boobs, period-like cramps, fatigue.. yuck.

    I'm 33 this time around. Maybe age makes a difference, because at 23 with my first and 25 with my second, I had plenty of energy, zero morning sickness and really only sore boobs to complain about!

    My b00bs were sore, but I put it down to just a bad month of AF. I also didn't realise it at the time, but I was peeing A LOT, having trouble staying asleep... We're were on our way home from Europe so I put the insomnia and peeing down to jet lag and trying to stay hydrated! The ONE month I wasn't symptom spotting, haha! And the tiredness, oh the 3pm energy slump was tough!

    Default Early Pregnancy Symptoms

    It's funny the one time I was actually pregnant I thought i was getting my period.

    Had some period like cramps and implantation spotting for three days, when it stopped I did a test.

    I had a few symptoms beforehand that I didn't attribute to pregnancy at the time:

    - sore breasts (thought it was from weight training)
    - slight dizziness
    - strange sense of smell, I remember thinking I had bad body odour all of a sudden and kept putting on heaps of deodorant ha

    The symptom that made me test was lack of acne, I always get acne a few days before AF and I didn't have any so tested on a whim and got a bfp. Within the week I had all the usual symptoms, sore BBs, morning sickness, peeing a lot.

    Having to get up during the night about 4 times every night to pee.

    I really monitored my cycle thought, I temped and I saw my implantation drop on my chart as well as I saw implantation spotting at the same time. I then noticed my temp didn't drop when AF was due so that's when we tested and we got a very faint line that came up immediately. From then I noticed my boobs get really sore and go up a cup size, really tired, emotional, strong smell, hungry nearly every hour and still lots of peeing! Have only had very slight nausea thankfully.

    I found out I was pregnant with sprog number 2 on Sunday! A few weeks back I had these god awful cramps and thought 3 things;

    1) I'll wake up to a monthly surprise
    2) I'll run to the loo in the middle of the night
    3) I'm pregnant and this is implantation.

    I thought for sure it would be number one or two....

    The next day came and no period or and I thought nothing of it.

    Then one day I had this mad itchy nipple! I couldn't stop itching it! Then I was ridiculously thirsty all the time. I checked my fertility app (Ovia) and it said I should have had my period the day before and if I hadn't gotten it, to take a test. So I did. Positive. Since then the mood swings, fatigue (or exhaustion, should I say), nausea, back ache and tender breasts have welcomed me into experience number 2!
