Hi girls, Sorry if this has been done before. I might well be getting my hopes up for nothing but I've been having what I can only describe as a butterfly in my tummy feeling as well as a faint tingly feeling in my breasts. This started yesterday and has continued to a lesser extent today. Has anyone else experienced this before getting a BFP? What were your first symptoms of pregnancy apart from a missed period. Thanks!

Hi macattack, I had a funny feeling in my tummy too along with painful boobs a couple of days before my period was due. I tested the day my period was due and I'm now almost 8 weeks!! When is your period due? :babydust:

The signs can be so different/varying that a test is probably best to be sure. I found out I was pregnant 31 days after last period so boob pain etc. had not set in - I am very regular and it was longest gap I've ever had in periods and we had just started trying so we did a test stright away. In terms of me then looking back over the few weeks before finding out I was pregnant - my skin was really dry, especially on my arms and there were a couple of mornings I was up getting ready in the morning for work and I had to suddenly sit down for a minute or two as felt a bit light-headed - but I'm not sure if these were pregnancy related or not, just the onley things of note out of the ordinary before I suspected that I was pregnant... Fingers crossed for you that you are... :babydust:

I've another 10 days before AF is due. Here's hoping! I'm preparing myself for disappointment but I just can't help reading into every little twinge I feel. DH is worried that I want it so badly that I'm starting to imagine symptoms. O:|

Would be an excellent xmas present!

My boobs were huge and sore sore - that stayed with me for about 14 weeks. Also, anything I ate seem to cause indigestion and was repeating on me plus at times I felt a little light headed. I did a pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy as I didn't think I could be. Low and behold I got two pink lines! We knew very early - about 3 weeks. Period wasn't due for another 8 days after I took the test. :babydust: :babydust: :babydust: :babydust: :babydust:

I didn't have butterflies as such, but did have an odd sensation in my stomach. I do wonder sometimes if it was really in my stomach or in my head, if you know what I mean, just some sort of knowledgable anticipation. My breasts certainly were heavier fairly early on. Not sore, just sensitive and bigger. Did get positive on my test a couple of times before the period was due though.

I went to fill the car with petrol a few days before period was due and the smell of period nearly knocked me out, so I knew something was different But other than that, I was convinced period was coming, had all the usual signs, bloating , cramps etc Fingers crossed for you x
