I’m 37 years old and I’m 5 weeks pregnant with my first IVF baby. My husband and I lived through 4 years of infertility. Two days ago I started experiencing light spotting, which turned into a heavier bleeding yesterday. The bleeding has since stopped. I was placed on bed rest by my doctor for the next couple of days until my first ultrasound at 6 weeks. My only other symptoms of pregnancy are slightly sore breast, and at times extreme hunger.

I am 30 years old and this is my first pregnancy. I am observing breast pain, some thick discharge and headache. I don't know if I am pregnant. I went for lab tests twice and the results came out positive both times.

I took 4 pregnancy tests and they are negative. But I have missed period and I've been back and forth to the bathroom from night sickness. I am eating like crazy. I know I have another little one.

With my first pregnancy I lactated for 3 weeks before I tested positive on a home test. I conceived on October 3 and found out on October 29. I didn’t think anything unusual because of my new medication and the fact that every doctor said it was too early to lactate anyway. Every woman is different. Now I am lactating and I have heavy tender swollen breast and know that again I am pregnant, but it is too early to test. I am very in tuned to my body. Talk to your doctor if you feel pregnant and keep a record of it. Let them know you are a different patient and you shouldn’t be compared to another. Good luck!

I found out that I was pregnant at 3 months. I have no symptoms. I did have headaches until I was 5 months pregnant. Now, I have missed my menstrual for August. My last one was July. All I'm having is abdominal pains, tenderness in my breast, and constipation (dry stool).

I am 35 and this is my fifth pregnancy. I have two boys and two girls already. I have never ever experienced what I am going through. I am 10 weeks into it and I have been on a feeding tube for 3 weeks. I can't eat or sleep.

I went to my doctor because I had a knot in my left breast. They weren’t sore, but one breast hurt and had that knot. I went in thinking I had breast cancer or something and found out I was pregnant. The doctor told me the knot came from my breast being so swollen. I didn’t believe I was because the only time I could have conceived was 2 weeks before then. She told me pregnancy happens right away but the earliest the test can detect it is 2 weeks into pregnancy and symptoms can start then.
