Hey everyone! Congrats to all of u on ur pregnancies
Well... Here I am 6 weeks along and already looking as big as I was at 20wks (literally, I compared!) and feeling like I'm 30 wks!
We were TTC and it was my first cycle with OPKs. I was pos for 5 days at least (didn't test the day before but had lots of Ewcm and suspected it). Anyway... I knew right away this time was it. I had cramping and lower back aches from the day of the first positive. To the point that a week after my OPKs I was convinced I was going to menstruate.
It subsided after that wkend but continued on a duller note literally until the day I got my BFP at 10dpo. I was already tasting metal (so strong it literally shocked me), had several intense waves of nausea (at 6 and 8 dpo) and my breasts were enlarged and tender from the time I ovulated.
6 weeks in they have grown almost a full cup size, and the lower backaches and cramping come and go... My hips are very sore and I already need a maternity pillow to keep me comfy at night. I'm sweating like a mad woman all the time (I'm normally verrrry cold) and my dreams are so intense they can bother me for the entire day!
Whew... That was waayyyyy too long. Sorry ladies... If anyone manages to get to the end of this... Has anyone else experienced this? Particularly the backaches, cramping and extreme breast symptoms from so early? I'd have thought there's no way to get symptoms long before implantation...
6 weeks is the typical time to start experiencing morning sickness. I was uncomfortable starting then with my second pregancy. You are probably normal. Talk to the doctor if you have concerns.

during 6 weeks pregnant, most women's experienced morning sickness, you are so lucky because of you don't have these symptoms. during pregnancy back ache is normal. if you feel more horrible with this please contact your doctor.
