I've been monitoring my blood pressure for the last four months and my very first symptom was a drop in blood pressure!! However, most people don't monitor their blood pressure, so I have no idea if there is anyone who could back me up on this Other symptoms were very sensitive nipples (my bb's have not hurt at all, really) and incredible moodiness!
I think my very first symptom was cramping... light menstrual type cramps. They started the week before AF was due - which was odd b/c I usually don't get them til a day before. So, I was starting to wonder why I had them for a week and no AF! I then had some slight queasiness on and off... a few days after AF was due, I took a test and it was ++++! I was also more gassy (TMI) than usual and was burping more. I think that started before the cramps.
My boobs got real real sore and big. I just thought I was starting AF and I started cramping like I was about to start AF and I didn't. I actually found out four days before AF was due to arrive. I guess I just knew something was going on in my body. About 6 weeks I started with real bad headaches and I was really lathargic.

My 1st symptoms were a heaviness in my low abdomen (like a brick) and needing to get up in the night to pee. These happened during the 2ww. I was doing the basal temperature thing and was not even late. Then, no AF and my basal temperature just stayed "up" and never dropped to the pre-ovulatory level, so I suspected then that I was pregnant.

Re: Early Pregnancy Symptoms
My first symptom was being very very tired. I have no energy whatsoever. I didnt suspect anything though then 4 mornings ago i threw up and i hardly ever throw up so right then and there i knew i should take a test and sure enough 2 pink lines. The day after i took the tests my breast were very sore.
My first sign during each and every pregnancy that I have had was burping. When ever I start burping with no reason attatched to it and can not stop it It was time for me to see two pink lines. Usually this starts right before my periods were due so I just bought the early tests.
