When do pregnancy symptoms kick in?!?

Ladies! I am driving myself mad lol. When do pregnancy symptoms actually kick in? I have zero apart from cramping. My boobs are so flat, I don't even feel pregnant. Sorry for another post! Xx

I'm wondering the same thing! I have cramping & tender boobs sometimes but that's about it! I'm even feeling less tired than I normally do... It's worrying me a tiny bit x

I feel exactly the same Hun! I don't feel any different apart from cramps lol x

Mine didn't start til about 7-8 weeks and even then they snuck up on me. The cramps were all I felt for a long time then suddenly, at about 7 weeks or so I just woke up one morning feeling queasy (I was queasy all day with morning sickness but never actually vomited) and that lasted for months then. Haha! I didn't get soreness/tenderness until a good few months in. Don't worry too much about symptoms everyone is different - I know that's easier said than done though xx

I only got my BFP yesterday but I had noticed in the last week my sense of smell seems to be so much better (which hasn't always been a good thing 😷😷😷)...thats all I've really noticed. I feel tired but I haven't been sleeping particularly well...boobs are a bit sore and still have mild cramps. I'm pretty much in the same boat!! Not looking forward to any nausea though I have to say! Xxx

I didn't feel anything either Hun!! The only thing i had was a weird taste in my mouth but I don't know if that was medication lol x

I didn’t feel pregnant throughout my whole pregnancy.

The only symptoms I had early on were needing the loo a lot (but I can go through phases like that anyway) and feeling tired but I’m a tired person anyway.

It was always playing on my mind not having symptoms but I was just lucky xx

For me the symptoms were pretty minimal and on and off until 8 weeks and then BAM severe sickness kicked in and didn’t leave for a longgggg time! Lol. I was also really tired from about 8 weeks until 12/13 then again at around 27 weeks I stared feeling tired again.

Everyone is different, some people don’t get many symptoms at all and others get symptoms on and off etc.

Try not to worry, easier said than done I know xxx

Thank you hun, I guess I should embrace not having any symptoms yet lol x

Mine have come and gone - some days I freak out that I'm not 'feeling it' and panic a bit! Really early on I felt really really hungry especially in the morning. I'm nearly at 11 weeks now and feel less bloated than I did 2 weeks ago. Got a scan tomorrow to check for Downs etc which involve a scan so hoping to see them (twins) alive and kicking then! How far on are you? Xx

I haven’t had any symptoms other than a couple of cravings in about week 8-9 I’m 20 weeks now and still don’t have any!! I just think some women don’t!! Try not to stress about it (easier said than done as I know I did 🙈) x x

Thank you hun, appreciate you replying back! I will try not to stress! X

I was wondering the same thing!

I’m still having cramping , more so after the cyclogest in morning and evenings but apart from that I haven’t noticed anything xxx

Were both in the same boat lol. We shall both remain calm!! X

Again this is a common and normal question to ask I think. I felt the same (ie nothing) until about 7-8 weeks when I started to feel quite queasy and needed salt n vinegar crisps to take the edge off! Lol

I didn’t have many symptoms other than mild sickness, little bit of cramping and tiredness but I’m always tired! Ha

I was off of work (between contracts) from about 7 weeks - 15 weeks and it was amazing. I had a nap on the sofa every afternoon and really looked after myself.

So hard as all you want is to feel really sick so you have another pregnancy symptom lol

Official test day tomorrow right? Have you done any more at home? Lol

Thank you for your reply Anna! I testsed yestetday and it said 2-3 weeks!! Just eager for my 8 week scan now!! Which isn't until May. I am very impatient lol x

My main symptom was nausea and it didn’t start until after 6 weeks (I think about 6+3) and it’s been there on and off ever since - now 34+5 and it’s back again 😔

I did have a few cramps too which became less frequent over time. I never considered the sore boobs to be particularly significant tbh as I thought they were due to the progesterone I was taking. Think it might’ve gone away after I stopped the cyclogest. Hope that reassures you a bit x

Reply

That's another worry hun, when I stop my medication will it all be ok! But I guess things will be ok! X

Reply

I worried about that too. In fact I worried at pretty much every stage! But although I’ve seen some bad luck for some ladies on here, sometimes things actually do go ok and I’m very grateful that so far the things I’ve been so anxious about have not happened.

Hope the same goes for you x

Main symptom was tiredness in the first trimester. Boobs did nothing the whole pregnancy. No morning sickness and just the odd cramp.

You have reassured me Hun, thank you xx
