    I believe you can just ‘know’. I’ve only taken a test once, and that whole month I just ‘knew’. I didn’t have a missed period or anything.. and then I took a pregnancy test, and it came up positive (digital test). It turned out to be a chemical pregnancy, but yeah.

    I think someone can just “know” but that it isn’t something everyone knows, since there are lots of people who are weeks and months pregnant before they realize it.

    Well, I’ve been TTC for 9 months and I’ve “just known” I was pregnant at least 5 times and have been proven wrong each time.  Perhaps if someone is lucky enough to get pregnant easily that feeling may prove to be true for them, but there are plenty of people who try and get that feeling and are wrong so I voted “no.”

    Sometimes I feel like I “know” I’m pregnant and it turns out either I’m pmsing or it’s just gas. I get phantom baby kicks every so often-there’s no baby though it’s just gas 😛

    I’ve thought I was pregnant so many times in the 16 months we’ve been TTC.  Nope, wrong every time!

    All those women who just knew also just knew other months when they weren’t pregnant, in my experience. They just disregard those times though and engage in classic confirmation bias by only acknowledging that one time they’re we’re right.

    Well I wouldn’t say I “just knew” based on nothing. I made a prediction based on evidence. 🙂 I knew we timed it right and I was having weird symptoms that I hadn’t had before.  And my BBT stayed up.  So I wasn’t surprised when I tested.  But I have worried I was pregnant before when I wasn’t too….
