I'm six weeks along, and my symptoms included implantation cramps the two days after conception, and implantation spotting three to four days after conception. It was only a three or four weeks later that all the other symptoms showed up. Thank God, though, no morning sickness.

Never been pregnant and have no such plans, but I'm truly fascinated by the process. I never miss the German show Mein Baby and I cry every time the babies are born!

100% :) I loved being pregnant! Until the very end.... The last month was hard! I worked until I was 8 months along. My baby is 10 now.... *Also a big sign for me was waking up on my back! I am a tummy sleeper.... Sp waking up on my back was a huge sign! My body was telling me my son was on his way! ♥

I was blaming the tiredness and late period on our wedding which was a week away. I figured the stress just drove my period away. That was until I took a pregnancy test to ease my mind. Ha! Another big sign for me was that I craved Lay's Potato Chips. Regular ol' Lays. I never eat them. Ever. So yeah, I took the test that day and here we are now with a 10 month old.

My husband and I weren't trying to get pregnant, but I just knew that I was pregnant when I needed a nap most afternoons and I was woken up in the middle of the night by heartburn a few times.

I didn't have any tenderness at all either, kellys. But I also don't during my period.

i spent two weeks saying "i'm just tired because of work stress." "my stomach is queazy because i haven't been eating because of work stress." even though we were trying and my period was almost 2 weeks late, i didn't expect the stick to give me two lines. the stress of work had often caused a delayed period. :) i think if your breasts get tender before your period, they're more likely to be tender when you get pregnant. i barely had any tenderness while pregnant.

In my case, my breast were so tender it was painful. Don't get me started on the sleeping. I would be in bed by 8pm and still had trouble waking up in the morning.
