Patient Comments: Pregnancy Symptoms - First Symptoms

What were your very first signs or symptoms of pregnancy? Did you suspect you were pregnant before taking a test?

I have always had weird periods so I didn't even include that as a factor. I took a pregnancy test because I started eating a lot more than normal and for me that was a telltale sign because I didn't eat too much before and sure enough it came out positive.

I had gotten a lot of dizzy spells could barely stand without leaning or blacking out. That was my cue to go see my doctor, and he then told me I was pregnant.

My breasts got tender and I started feeling intense pain in my nipples before I found out that I am pregnant.
