with my son i had no symptoms intially, just that my period was late, so took a test. however, with my daughter i started throwing up when i was about 5 minutes pregnant and continued to do so for the next 4 months! no need for a test there!
I was charting so I knew I was pregnant about 10 days after it happened. I waited 18 days to take the test which would have been 4ish days past my expected period. None of my symptoms appeared until I took the test but DH said that he thought I was about a week before I took the test because I smelled and tested different. Soon after I started feeling nauseous. Actually, I might have had some signs before but I didn't realize it like more frequent trips to the potty, tender nipples and severe fatigue.
I waited 2 weeks to do the test and it showed up really faint but I had sore boobs and things tasted bad then the morning sickness started. Missed period also but I did bleed a little on two occasions after I`d been to work.
I had long cycles and I just happened to go to the doctor before each time I found out. When she asked about how long it had been it didn't worry me. Yup, was pregnant. I think that I thought the tender breasts were the usual. Nope.
I was sick all day for 5 months with my daughter and not a day with our son.
