Didn't even know...

4 weeks and one day, if I hadn't of taken a test because my period was 2 days late, I wouldn't have known. Sore nipples and slight cramps like a period coming, but I feel great otherwise!

It's positive

I felt like others here and didn't want to face another negative test. I finely took the test today and I am 5 1/2 weeks! So excited this is my first.

My Experience this time around...

My first two pregnancies began with my developing a "super nose". I could smell things from miles away. Then came the terrible morning sickness. But those were the only "symptoms" that I remember from the first two. Now that I am expecting my third and at 11 weeks...omgosh how different! Morning sickness that lasts all day and night, weight loss, headaches, dizziness, and that's just the beginning. I can honestly say I have never been this miserable in my entire life...

So Far so Good

I am 6 weeks pregnant. I have gas, light cramping, frequent urination, sore breasts, and nausea, but I am happy because I haven't vomited yet! I am traveling for four weeks and hope that my symptoms don't increase. So far so good!

Pregnant after 3 miscarriages

I found out I am pregnant but very scared as I lost my son at 19 week and had 2 miscarriages since. Fingers crossed this time.

Serioulsy worried to be happy!

I m not yet sure, its been a week I have missed my period. My symptoms are nausea, vomiting tendency, craving for sour-spicy food, fatigue, morning illness. I'm diabetic for 10 years and I'm only 28 years old. I m worried cause I always have had a hidden terror of not having or having problematic baby. This is one of the most pleasant feeling, but i m worried, if it proves to be positive I m seriously pregnant, and things are all well immediate and long after. I hope and wish all to pray for me so that I get rid of my worst nightmare and become the happiest!

4 weeks

I'm four weeks and I've definitely noticed changes. My boobies hurt and my stomach feels as though I just did 200 crunches! I'm peeing all the time, and have an awful metallic taste in my mouth.

Baby #2

I'm 5 weeks and this pregnancy is completely different from my first one. I had hot flashes before I got my BFP and shortly after I was and still am extremely tired all the time and that's all so far. I'm hoping this one is a boy, since we already have a 2 year old little girl.
—Guest Tammy

6 weeks

I'm six weeks into my first pregnancy and haven't had a ton of symptoms yet! No morning sickness. Some headaches but I get those anyways and no caffeine has probably not helped! I've had sore breasts and some light cramping but nothing too terrible yet!

I'm 8 weeks and 5 days

I'm 8 weeks and on my fourth baby. My last two were miscarriages so I'm hoping god lets this baby make it to see the world. I'm feeling sick a lot and craving for pickles which is weird. For new moms the first is normally the hardest and good luck.

3 weeks pregnant

I'm pregnant with my second child, so happy to be pregnant. We've been trying for 6 months and my periods have been screwy and I was getting worried I wasn't gonna get pregnant at all. I feel nauseous all the time, unless I'm eating so I eat a lot but it comes right back. I'm having back pain which may also be from my 50# 3 yr old and the UTI I found out I had when I found out I was pregnant. I can't wait to tell the family but the hubby wants to wait.
—Guest tiff

Happy but worried

I have had 2 miscarriage one back last August so it would be due now and one back in December so this baby is due Christmas day. I am only five weeks and am worried to could happen again. So far no bleeding and my test at home was so clear when the other ones were faint.
—Guest angie

Wow

I was shocked at first. I was joking with my boyfriend and said, "I think I'm pregnant." He went and got a test and it come back positive. I went to the doctor and I was 7 weeks and then came the vomiting. I'm now 3 months and still get sick, but so excited can't wait to be a mum. Food is the worst. I can't really eat much. All I want to do is sleep. I have constant headaches and my feet are so much colder, hope it gets better

After a 4 yrs of ttc....It Was Positive!

I had been feeling a little moody more than usual. I woke up one morning and felt my breast sore. I had been having mild cramping before I found out I was pregnant but i thought it was my period getting ready to start but after being late 3 days I took a pregnancy test and it was positive! I couldn't believe my eyes. I immediately starting crying because it had been 4 years of TTC and after taking 4 rounds of Clomid I gave up and just let nature take its course! We are so excited because my sister and I had been trying for several years and we are both pregnant about a month apart! I am scheduling a doctor's appointment to make sure everything is fine and just to double check my pregnancy because I still can't believe it!
