Okay,
So I heard of ladies saying they experienced flu symptoms when they first got pregnant, (my bestfriend was one), and just kind of shook it off and thought they were sick.

So, I guess my question is, is this common? And what kind of symptoms did you have?
I have a cough, headache, a little heartburn (today), and some nausea.

I mean its so hard to tell with everyone being sick these days with colds and flu to tell if you're REALLY sick or are pregnant. I see alot of ladies writing about how they thought they just had a "cold" or "flu" but were really pregnant.

I've never had the flu, so I don't know. But you should test.

I had dizziness, hot flashes, and a bad f**king headache a few days before I found out I was pregnant. Oh, and my ears were ringing and I was running a temp of 100.1.



I was not sick with anything though, I went to the doctor and had viral and bacterial blood work done, I was just pregnant.

What did it for me is that I HAVE NEVER HAD HEARTBURN IN MY LIFE. I've had indigestion, but never heartburn. And I was having it constantly.
