Post subject: 3 days late!
Just wondered if any of you pg ladies had none or very few signs of pregnancy in the first couple of weeks.
I'm 3 days late. I chart my BBT so I know I ov'd on day 18 (as every month) and my luteal phase is always 11 days. I'm now 14 DPO. I was convinced AF was coming on Tuesday but no show. I did a test on Wed/Thurs which were negative but I've just been reading that HCG levels can be from 5 - 426 in week 4! so may still be too low.
I've no pre AF spots, cramps nothing although I did have a fewlower abdo twinges last night but then thought it was probably just my bowels. I also nearly threw up when one of the guys at work put his tea in the microwave but then someone else agreed it was stinking!!!! Am I just reading too much into this?
I really thought if Iwas pg I would 'just know' but I don't feel anything

With my first, I didnt get any symptoms at all. Just one bout of really bad vomiting after going shopping and looking at raw meat. Ended up I was in the car park honking whilst my OH had to do all the shopping but that was before I had even missed a period.
I tested when I was 1 week late for my period (AF) and that was a positive.
Dont think you have to have any signs or symptoms but sometimes you can be affected early with all the hormones.
Not much help i know

When I got pregnant with my first, I had to take a first morning urine to the doctors and I was working the night shift then and thought exactly the same as you, no first morning urine sample but when OH asked the doctor, they said it is your first wee after 7am.
Hope it helps
