Here are the differences so far:

-much earlier BFP (9dpo this time vs. 13dpo with m/c)
-tests have gotten progressively darker
-bbs more sore
-cramping/stretching after BFP
-lots of creamy discharge

First beta at 10dpo was 13.5. I go in for my second beta tomorrow morning at 17dpo.

Difference so far:

With m/c:

*I had a pain in in the small of my back since before I got the BFP and for about a week and a half afterwards.
*My bbs felt a teensy bit tender around 8 or 9 DPO, and then the pain went away by the time I got my BFP.
*I had fairly noticeable, continuous cramps in my lower abdomen on either side of my belly-button for about a week after I got the BFP.
* I never felt one moment of nausea or constipation or anything, really.
* I don't remember having to pee a lot.
* I didn't have a lot of CM.
* I was only REALLY hungry about two or three days, then it went away.
* About a week after I found out, I got REALLY nasty. I just felt very hostile for about four or five days and would snap at everyone.

With this pregnancy:

* No pain in my back.
* My bbs did not get sore until about 10DPO and they are STILL sore at 22 DPO -- especially on the side and around the nipples.
* No continuous cramps -- maybe a few fleeting ones -- feels more like something being stretched.
* Since about 9 DPO, I've had bad indigestion, some diarrhea (if I eat the wrong things) and gas. Also, starting last week, I feel sick if I have an empty stomach and sometimes after I eat.
* Started having to pee a lot right after I found out; continues.
* I have more discharge and some of it feels EWCM-ish.
* I have been quite hungry since about a week before I got my BFP.
* No feelings of anger or hositility.

With ectopic and 3 m/c's urine tests (even hospital ones) wouldn't turn positive until 6 weeks. With this pg I got a positive 4weeks2days. My bbs enlarged on all pg by 4 weeks (ectopic not till 5weeks). My temps were higher after ov on this pg than the last m/c (wasn't temping for others so don't know if this is significant). I had tugging/pulling pains behind my tummy button with this pg but not with the others at all.

Honestly, as far as symptoms... This pg and the m/c were exactly alike. The ONLY thing different, was my beta. It was lower last time (but doubled nicely) When I first got my number, I kept bugging dh and freaking out, becasue I should've been further along than I was.

But - out of the 4 times I've been pregnant, I only spotted with the m/c and THIS one! I never did with my two healthy daughters. So that was really weird.
I totally thought I was going to lose this baby too. I spotted brown and pink. Drove me nuts.

This is a great thread, cuz I was just commenting to DH last night that this PG feels way different than my PG that M/C'd in Dec 2008.

Biggest differences:

1) This PG, I actually feel PG (bloated down there)

2) This PG, I am gaining weight already probably due to bloat (in M/C PG I lost weight)

3) This PG, I am already getting round ligament pains (in M/C PG I never got 'em)

4)This PG by BB's are sore, tingly, and already feel bigger (at 3 weeks), in my M/C PG, my BB's never seemed to change.

Sticky baby vibes to all.

It is eery to me how many of my sxs were similar to you gals! I can't remember all your names and don't have time to look back at all the posts but, just like one of you, I too just KNEW deep down inside that the m/c pregnancy just wasn't right.

With the m/c:

~Had a feeling something wasn't right. When people would talk about their pregnancies to me and ask about how mine was doing I would almost feel like I was lying or pretending to actually be pg if that makes any sense.
~No fatigue last time, but this pg and with DD I have had a lot of fatigue.
~Saw nothing but a gestational sac at 5w4d u/s and tech said normally we'd see a yolk sac by then and I just told her I probably O'd late, but deep down felt it wasn't normal. This pg we saw the HB and baby at 6w1d.
~Nips were very sore when nursing DD until about 5 weeks pg when they felt back to normal. This pg they're still super sore when DD nurses and even if I just touch them.
~Milk supply dipped WAY DOWN one day during the 5th week of m/c pg, making DD really really cranky and she wanted to nurse nonstop. Next day it was back to normal. This pg my supply seems ok so far.
~Like one of you, I was incredible hostile and angry ALL THE TIME during that pg - we joked that it must have been extra testosterone and I was maybe having a boy, since I was never like that with DD
~No m/s at all, could eat whatever I want. Unlike this pg and when I was pg with DD...I had to go on anti-nausea meds both times due to sever m/s
~Still felt really bloated last time though, maybe even more so than this one (I think one of you said you were more bloated/showed more with your m/c baby...that's how I was)
~I dreamt I had a miscarriage and that the toilet was filled with blood, it was so vivid and scary.
~Spotting at 6w5d which led to m/c. This time I have had no spotting at all yet and am 7w2d!
~Heart constantly pounding with m/c pg, it would wake me up at night and was just totally weird to me. It's happened only once this pg.
~Not getting up to pee at night with m/c, but already getting up to pee every night at 3am with this pg.
~Terrible acne with m/c pg, but this one my skin is clearer than ever (like when I was pg with DD, skin became super clear!)

Overall, this pg feels EXACTLY like my pg with my DD. Plus I dreamt I got another u/s and saw a baby girl and she smiled at me and we could tell she was going to have the same hair as DD - much better than dreaming about m/cing!
