PCOS Early Pregnancy Symptoms

For those of you who successfully got pregnant while living with PCOS, what were the first things you experienced? I can't tell if my 3 days late period is just due to stress (I am pretty regular but it shifts if I'm stressed) or not. I am TTC and had sex during my peak fertility time/ovulation and my symptoms are runny/stuffy nose, heavy breasts, no appetite, tired, bloating. My mother has PCOS too and she didn't really feel different at first when she conceived me. In fact, she never had a positive home pregnancy test - even her blood and urine tests at the doctor's came back negative. She only knew for sure when I kicked her at 5 months along!

Thanks for your help!

I am currently ttc my first with my husband we have been trying for 5 months. two weeks ago I thought I was on my period (enough to think I needed a tampon) switch tampons and the 2nd was bone dry. Ever since then my boobs have been sore...I screamed when my husband tried to touch them last night and runny nose. Should I test or wait to see if my period hits? I have not been able to touch alchol cause it makes my stomach churn
Gr:  Thanks Jennifer just letting you know I tested and I am pregnant!!!!
Je:  i would test
Gr:  And it has been 8 weekend exactly since my last period

I have pcos and just got my positive blood test yesterday! :) and at cycle day 49 I was still getting negative tests. I went to a fertility specialist and she was going to put me on drugs to being on my period but had to do a lot of blood work first. And then cycle day 53 was when I did the blood work, and they called me the next day and told me it was positive for pregnancy! I'm so so happy. And as for symptoms, I got none at all πŸ˜•
Ni:  I ended up having a miscarriage :( 22 months trying now.. with 2 miscarriages.
Ag:  That's crazy good news for you I'm at cycle day 49 usually have regularise periods never this late! Sore Lower back, stuffy nose in the morning, a little nausea, discharge and cramping oh and this bubbly feeling in my belly!! Meh preg tests but hoping form your experience my bloods will be positive
Pe:  sorry to ask this late. but did you ever get a positive urine test before you got the bloodwork confirmed??

I have pcos and on metformin! Just found out we are pregnant and I didn't really have any symptoms! I even had a "period" last week and had some spotting yesterday and today. I have noticed that I have been going to bed earlier than normal and tired throughout the day but other than that nothing! Good luck to you and lots of baby dust!
Al:  I felt like I had a normal period just kinda more painful but a week after I stopped my period I started bleeding again which is very unusual for me so I took an opk and an hpt and I got my positive. Went out and got a digital and that was positive too. I ended up with a miscarriage though.
At:  I just started metformin too. Just out of curiousity, what made you take a test even though you thought you had a period?

I'm 36 and have had PCOS since I was 15. About 3 years ago, my periods started to become regular and I really started tracking. My hubby and I are TTC for a year now. My last period was Aug. 27 and haven't had a period since then. I've had symptoms. Sore breasts, nausea, I'm bloated, my tracking says I'd be around 11/12 weeks...but I've had one positive hpt and 4 neg hpts. Idk how to feel. Am I pregnant? Or am I crazy? I have a dr appointment Tuesday.... should I ask for an ultrasound? Help!!!!!!
Ka:  Oh my gosh.. I'm in the same exact place as you. Only shorter times. I've had every symptom except breast pain and heart burn but I've only gotten negative tests. I know how disheartening it can be.. I'm sorry youI have to go through it too.

I'm currently ttc#2. Had pcos since I was 14.  When I was pregnant with baby#1 I got no symptoms what so ever. Took hcg test weekly and got BFN's. finally I gave myself a three week break from the disappointment and then got faint BFP's. When I went for my doctors appointment I was already 13 weeks pregnant. It's been 5yrs since my first pregnancy a lot has changed with my body. This time hoping I get symptoms we've been trying for a year and no luck so far. it took us a year to conceive baby#1 though. I've tired metformin I couldn't handle the side effects so I stopped taking it. I'm Currently on my own regimen that I used to conceive baby#1 with a little change to it to improve the chances. Feeling hopefully this month. Hoping how Iam feeling are early pregnancy symptoms. Af is due tomorrow but with pcos who knows if she'll show or not. I also have a Appointment with a fertility specialist on the 20th. If it doesn't happen next month I'm going to try clomid. 
Jo:  yeah what supply are I using for our pcos
Va:  What supplements are you taking to help the ttc with pcos?

I'm currently ttc my second & have had PCOS since I was 16. I was told I couldn't have kids so he was a surprise but I remember spotting for like 3 days so I thought it was my period. When it never got any heavier, I thought it was just another month where my af wanted to do what it wanted to do. Then the next week my boobs hurt sooooo bad!! My son's father convinced me to take a test & low & behold I was preggers. He's 12 now.

Weirdly stuffy nose has basically been my only symptom!!!! 
Am:  I didn't know a stuffy nose was a sign of pregnancy. is that in all women or mostly just common in women with PCOS?

I had zero symptoms at all pregnant for my son and the only reason I tested was because my husband (then boyfriend!) had a feeling and begged me to - so I basically tested to shut him up, LOL. it was blaaaaringly positive, and I began to bleed the next week so I was sure I was losing him. They did an U/s and he was perfectly fine, and I was 8 weeks along. He's a healthy, beautiful, brilliant 4 year old now. ❀️
