    Sore boobs. But my dog became very protective and would not leave me alone. Then at the hairdressers and their dog sat on my lap for 3 hours – and she doesn’t do that. Enjoyed my night out with girlfriends and took the test the next morning – 2 lines I was not expecting but was so wanting.

    Not bleeding, I have a history of DVT’S and was told that your blood thickens when pregnant. I was preparing dinner one night and cut myself, I didn’t bleed when I should have. I knew it was a sign so I did a test and it came back positive.

    With both of mine I got an obsession too do a home test…. even though they came back negative at first I couldn’t stop it was a compulsion. I finally promised myself I would stop doing them when the 6th one came back negative – and two days later I found myself buying another lot of tests and bot times the first test I did in that second lot came back positive….then the sore boobs and sickness came

    I knew 2nd time round cause I had all the same symptoms and more.
    Made me sick to smoke, made me sick to brush my teeth and 2nd time, severe nausea. I’m 24 weeks now πŸ™‚

    We’d been trying for over 2 yrs.
    On this one occasion I tested 8 days before period was due and got faint positive. 10 tests and a week later went to doc to tell her. Blood test confirmed it!!
    I’m now 15 weeks, 3 days pregnant!!! πŸ™‚

    With my first I awoke during the night with butterflies. Rather than wait for period (due the next day), I just tested. Second time I woke up feeling really good the day period was due (no pain, nausea etc like most months)… So tested and yep- baby no 2.
    Third time – had Mirena contraception and 9 weeks after initial bleeding stopped I went to doctor with flu-like symptoms, nausea and inability to eat to find out it was ‘morning sickness’ and bub was 7 weeks already.

    I got really snappy and short tempered, yelling at someone one second and cry-laughing at them seconds later. Was a giveaway everytime! Also a straining stretching pain in my ovary both times too very early on πŸ™‚
