I’m sure there have been threads about this before, but I was just wondering if anyone just knew in their gut they were pregnant before getting a BFP. I could swear I am, but won’t be able to find out for sure for another week. It’s my first time trying so I don’t really have anything to compare it to, but I just have a feeling. Anyone else have that? Were you right? Thanks!

I totally knew with my first; I didn’t even test until like 5 or 6 weeks, because I was so convinced! I didn’t know with #2, but my husband knew with both of them. I guess he can read me better than I can! 🙂

I completely knew with both of my girls. I actually had the same dream with both of them, got up and tested and got BFP right away.

I didn’t have a “gut feeling”, but I was tired as hell the whole week before AF was due (like could take a nap standing up each afternoon if I had to, and I am NOT a nap person), and my boobs hurt so bad I didn’t even want to take my bra off in the evenings. I tested positive at 10DPO so these symptoms came on fast! Do you have any symptoms? Good luck!

@bellamargot: The tired thing hit early with me too. We got our BFP right before the last Harry Potter movie came out, and we had planned a movie marathon for the weekend before. We cooked, decorated, went all out, because we’re lame like that.
After all of the preparation, I fell asleep at like..6:00 that evening. DH was like “What is the matter with you??” haha

I was the opposite – I was 100% convinced I was NOT pregnant! It was our frst month trying and we didn’t even start trying until the day after O so I was sure we had missed our window. Previous months, when we were half-heartedly preventing, I had suspicions I may be pregnant but obviously was not. Clearly my gut instinct is COMPLETELY wrong! Oh and when not pregnant, I had every PMS/pregnancy symptom in the book; when actually pregnant, I had not one single symptom until after my BFP at 15 DPO.

My first, no. My period was late so that tipped me off. But with this baby yes. I was so drained, I thought I was sick and it hit me “Oh crap” haha.

Apparently gut instinct doesn’t always work because I was kind of convinced I was pregnant last month. And we aren’t trying (I’m on bc but we all know thats not 100% effective). But for some reason I just had this seirous gut feeling that I was pregnant and that had never happened to me before. I even contemplated buying a test a few days before my period just to confirm but decided to wait. Then I got my period a day early! So apparently definitely NOT pregnant lol.

Yes. I had high hopes in previous months, and even half thought I might be, or would be almost convinced that I must be, but would have nagging doubts. When it happened, I just knew I’d get that little line and my lack of doubt is what scared me! Sure enough, I got that BFP when I tested at 10 dpo.

I totally thought I was *not* pregnant. Even when my period was a day late and my temps were still quite high, I was sure AF was just about to show up. I just didn’t “feel” pregnant, but I guess I didn’t even know what that meant, since now I’m 21 weeks and have a wiggly baby kicking around inside me 🙂

I was absolutely sure twice in my life. And nope, I have never been as of yet! But I had every symptom, so you never know.

I totally thought I was NOT pregnant the month I got my BFP. However, couple of times before that I was convinced that I was pregnant when I was not!

My first pregnancy I was absolutely convinced I that wasn’t, so that BFP was such a shock. With my current pregnancy, it was the opposite. I was sure that I was. I had too many similar feelings that I had with my first so the BFP wasn’t a surprise at all.

I pretty much suspected I was but was in denial about it for a few days. I started spotting about 4 days before my period was due and I never spotted before so I assumed it was a weird period coming early. Then it went away the next day. On the actual morning my period was due I had no cramps or signs it was coming like I usually did. I had an HPT left over from a 2 pack so I took it and it turned positive right away. I’m pretty in tune with my body so the changes were a definite sign.

I did because I’ve never had period cramps before without a period. It was annoying, but exciting. I knew when the HPT still wouldn’t show positive.
