My husband and I have been trying to conceive for a few months now with our 2nd child. Just curious, how many of you second time moms had pregnancy symptoms earlier? If so, how much earlier?

Like do you mean symptoms that gave me an idea if I was pregnant or not or just the start of symptoms?



With DD I didn't have any symptoms my entire pregnancy other than heartburn starting late in the 2nd trimester and cravings.



This time I didn't have any symptoms at all until about 6 weeks and I got a bit of morning sickness but it wasn't bad enough to the point where I was actually sitting by the toilet 24/7, I was just nauseous all the time. Also I'm a lot more tired this time around but I think that's because I have a 2, almost 3, year old to chase around.

Well, this is my 5th pregnancy, but only my 2nd successful one and my symptoms always started between 6-7 weeks (aside from fatigue, which started right away).

Just regular pregnancy symptoms. I know every woman is different and every pregnancy is different, but I was curious to see if there were any similarities. Probably not much, huh? lol



I've been feeling nauseous, bloated, crampy, emotional, exhausted and I have back pains for the last week or so, but my period's not due for another week. Wasn't even sure if those were symptoms of pregnancy or even if it would be possible that early. It would have meant I conceived around July 1st, but I don't think I could start getting symptoms a week after conception even it being my 2nd pregnancy. Any thoughts?

I had super sore nipples around 3w (still nursing my 1.5y/o) and was very tired starting then. Got a pos at 4w
Didn't start getting nausea and whatnot until 6 w.
