My January cycle I was SO sure I was pregnant, but then I wasn’t. So after that one, I decided to take the pressure off myself and just relax about it. I remember feeling REALLY emotional and cranky the week my period was due to start, and I was so sure it was just PMS. But then my breasts started feeling really solid and strange, I wasn’t hungry, and my period didn’t come. I tested very early in the morning and it was positive immediately with a strong dark line.
I felt like I was a bit hungover the two days before I tested. My morning sickness did start early, but was fairly mild (I was initially pregnant with twins, so that might have done it). I also felt crampy, though and though for sure my period was about to start. But it never did!
I didn’t feel pregnant. I felt like my period was coming. When it didn’t show up I took a test. It appeared negative. I suddenly thought that was insane. There was no way that test was right. I took a FRER and it was positive. We weren’t trying. I didn’t have any symptoms until week 5 (cramping, increased frequency of urination, a few food aversions.) Week 6 the MS started and did. not. let. up. I finally shook it this past week, at week 15.
I didn’t feel anything until 10 weeks. I may have even been able to dismiss that. I was lucky to have a very easy pregnancy.
Yes, that’s why I decided to test when I did. My stomach felt incredibly bloated, full, and heavy. I was having weird cramps when I moved a certain way, almost like a crick in my stomach. I tested the next morning and got a clear BFP at about 13DPO.
I didn’t feel pregnant (whatever that means, since it seems to be so different for every woman and even every pregnancy), but during dinner on 11 DPO, I had my favorite salad from our local pizza place and the olives, which I normally can’t get enough of, tasted like pure utter poison. I wasn’t nauseous, I just … could not bring myself to ingest those olives. DH tasted them and said they were fine, not rancid or anything. So I tested the next day and there was my clear BFP.
Not really. We had been trying for 15 months…and i didnt experience any of pregnancy symptoms other women get. The only thing different for me was that I was extremely thirsty. I tested at 12 DPO with a walmart test and was so surprised when it was positive and retested with FRER right away!
I wasn’t sure the first time, but knew I was pregnant the next two times because I had the exact same symptoms each time. I had period-like cramping that started between 10 and 12 DPO, but no period. I never have cramps unless my period is starting a few hours later.
No I did not feel pregnant. In fact, I didn’t know I was pregnant until 8weeks along. I had a few symptoms on 1 or 2 days but I wrote them off because they could have been from anything.
Nope, not at all! Right after my BFP I started having frequent urination and was a little more tired than usual…but right around 6.5 weeks it hit me, the fatigue was overwhelming and just an overall feeling of blah, not sick but not good either. That lasted a few weeks then I felt somewhat normal, but the fatigue/lack of energy has remained with me (I’m 21 weeks now).
I knew I was pregnant before the test strip would even show a positive this time. I had the exact same pregnancy symptoms I’d had before – super gassy, bloated, and had heartburn.
