I wasn’t sure where to post this, but I am curious if anyone can relate.
I don’t want to sound like a crazy person who is trying to convince myself I’m pregnant just cus I really want to have a baby, since neither I nor SO is at all ready for that right now. I am just wondering if anyone else has just “felt” pregnant? The past week or so I have been having the worst sleeps and waking up in the middle of the night covered in sweat. I got (what I believe was) my period a week early. Now I am experiencing nausea (no vomiting though) and hypersensitivity to smells. On top of all of that, I just have this feeling that I could be pregnant.
I really hope I’m not bonkers and that someone can relate.

it could be psychosomatic…just thinking you’re pregnant can cause physical symptoms. if you got your period, don’t worry about it and make sure you’re using a reliable form of birth control.

I’ve felt this twice in the past year. The first time actually seemed to be a reaction to a medication/an illness and the second time was my new birth control. But I think the reason I felt pregnant was also because literally everyone I know right now has a baby or is due soon. So I agree I’ve been thinking about pregnancy a lot and therefore interpreted the symptoms that way.

I’ve never been prego so may not be the best person to answer, especially because I always think I might be when I miss my period or things seem “off.” (in that way I can definitely relate!)
HOWEVER, I do think with what you described it wouldn’t hurt to test. Your period could have been implatation bleeding, and the nausea/increased smell are certainly symptoms from what I’ve heard. If you aren’t pregnant, I would go to the doctor because night sweats can be a symptom of a variety of different illnesses and definitely aren’t normal unless you’ve switched to a super heavier comforter or something like that. Good luck!

I “just knew” I was going to be pregnant immediately after sex one day. Sure enough, that was our conception date. Of course I also knew that I was ovulating and we were having at sex at the right time. I think it’s totally possible to know you’re pregnant before testing, but it’s also just as possible that your body is just “off” and your mind is automatically jumping to the conclusion you hope you to be true. There’s no telling for sure until you test!

Well… Darling Husband and I thought we would stop “trying not to” – and we did that for one month. (I decided to go to graduate school.) I was almost 100% sure I was pregnant. I had every symptom. Turns out, I just happened to have a weird stomache flu. It was a coincidence, but I was also a lot more emotional-. I even got prenatal vitamins. We both thought I was, but sure enough, it was just coincidental that I was crying at the television (I never do that!), my boobs were twice their normal size, and I was throwing up. I was also so tired I thought I had some sort of fatigue. I also was around a woman who is due next month and my good friend just had a baby and Darling Husband and I had what I call a “baby attack” where we both just wanted to start a family.
