    What are some symptoms that you have had when you got pregnant, or a friend of yours. Early pregnant symptoms.
    I am about 7 out of 10 of the listed ones on websites.
    Don't have the swollen breasts, the bleeding, or the throwing up- Feeling like I am going to, but I am not throwling up

    I love coffee and when I got pregnant I couldn't stand the smell or the taste of it. I also had tender breasts. This occurred a little while before I was late. I was about four days late when I decided to test.

    I never threw up, but I had an excess of saliva--you know when you're nauseaus (sp)
    The tests now are pretty accurate, if you're curious--go get a test!! Let us know!!

    Thank you guys!!!
    I will- My husband has been through a lot of cancer treatments so if we did- it would be a true miracle. Not that it couldn't happen, just absolute miracle.
    I want to wait till Saturday to test
    Last period was on the 16th of November
    I am a bit nervous-so excited. I would love to give my husband a little baby shirt that says "I love my daddy" or something :) for christmas- He has been through a lot this year.

    Any more symptoms would help :)

    I actually had a food craving-pancakes with syrup. Just the thought of this food normally (like right now) makes me want to hurl, but I could have ate it at every meal with both of mine.

    Fatigue! Not being able to keep your eyes open. Tender breasts, yes. Clothes suddenly a little tight. Cravings. I remember most the fatigue. Never had morning sickness (because I ate constantly! My stomach was never empty haha!), but I would drop to sleep in an instant in the middle of the morning or afternoon.

    I have heard about a coppery/penny taste in your mouth. Also, being extremely tired--more than usual.

    My food craving was BEANS! Any variety or cooked any way! DH finally begged me to stop cooking beans! haha! I also remember craving corned beef and cabbage. Cooked it for about 4 hours, made my plate up, sat down to eat, took one bite and suddenly it seemed like a horrible thing to have in my presence! That was that.

    I am really really really tired all the time. I am exhausted actually. I have never done this but I had the kids do worksheets all day yesterday, I didn't feel like doing anything. I HAVE NEVER EVER THOUGHT I WOULD DO THAT! I was achy all over my body. I have mood swings up the wazoo. Craziness

    I had the sick to my stomach but not throwing up. My breasts would get tender (that was my sure fire way of knowing!). Moodiness and cravings were there too, but not as bad.

    GO TODAY!!! I can't wait until Saturday to find out!

    I am 9 weeks pregnant and for me it was the constant peeing, pure exhaustion, and excess saliva. I have just started an unpleasant habit of vomiting every morning :(

    I might go today. I don't know if I can still take a test. Aren't you supposed to take it in the morning, with your first urine? or something?

    The test I took said the first morning urine tends to have the highest amount of pg chemicals but the test can be taken at anytime- so says the box. Go for it.

    Do it, do it, do it!

    And, remember, if it happens to be negative, we're here for you also. DH and I decided to try for a third earlier this year, and it just isn't working (obviously). We just don't really think about the "trying" part (we just practice, as dh says!). When you're meant to be blessed, you will be.

    The hormone the test is looking for is called hcg. Hcg is excreted pretty evenly throughout the day, with a surge during the night. Also, first morning urine is more concentrated because you haven't been intaking any fluids while you sleep. That's why the reccomend testing first thing in the morning, particularly if you're testing before your missed period. That said, the tests are sensitive enough to pick up hcg in all but extremely dilute urine. So, if you want to test during the day, use the bathroom, don't drink anything for a couple of hours, then test. The urine at that time would me more concentrated than if you had been drinking something and you will be more likely to have a positive early test.

    So, of course, I vote for TEST NOW. Go pee, go to the store and get a test, wait another hour or so after you get home (while not drinking anything) and then pee on the darn stick. Then come right here and let us know....even before you tell dh :D

    And make sure that when you DO test that you wait a good three minutes before checking (even if the box says one minute). I took one like that, thinking it was negative, but wasnt convinced so I went out and got another one. Waited awhile longer, sure enough it was positive.

    You are far enough along that the test would be probably be + at any time of the day. A good cheap, yet sensitive test is the equate brand at Wal-mart. I got a positive on it at just 9 days past ovulation. Another good one if you want to fork out some $ is the Clearblue digital. I got a "Pregnant" on it later that same evening, but I had to hold my urine for several hours. :lol: (I am a test addict.) The digital ones are fun for announcing the news to others.

    I hope you get good news soon!
