For me, I somehow just knew I was pregnant. It had been 9 days since my period, my cat had just died & I was standing there watching my husband dig the hole. I suddenly thought out of the blue "Oh, my! I'm pregnant". I don't know where the thought came from, it just popped into my head. Well, I thought I was crazy & just waited for my period. It didn't come. I waited a couple days thinking I was freaking myself out into being late but still no period. So I did a home pregnancy test - Positive. The next day I did another one - Positive. Then I called the doctor, got in the next day, he did urine & blood tests - both Positive. Yay!
I'm heading into my 11th week now & so far it's been going ok. I have had no morning sickness whatsoever, but I gag at everything all day long. If I smell anything I gag. If I'm hungry I gag. When brushing my teeth I gag. If I'm in the car for more than 2 or 3 blocks I gag. Every time I think "now's the day I'll start throwing up", but luckily it hasn't happened yet. Although sometimes I gag so hard it hurts my chest. Since I started taking pre-natal vitamins I have the most awful taste in my mouth. It's there all day long, but it's especially bad in the morning. My gums bleed like crazy when I brush my teeth, too. I'm tired all the time, but have the worst time staying asleep. I get up to pee 2 or 3 times a night, and have about 47 dreams a night that wake me up - all freaky/crazy dreams, too. My boobs are amazing though. I've gone up to a C-cup, which is awesome. They're tender as can be though, and I went from hardly ever wearing a bra to wearing one 24/7 except for when I take a shower (and I'm considering wearing it in the shower too). I've always been a right-side sleeper, but now I am only comfortable sleeping on my back or my left side. Oh yeah - and I'm gassier than all 3 of my dogs & my husband combined! I think that's pretty much it for the symptoms. How about you?
