I am not pregnant and we’re not actively trying to conceive yet but I wonder – before you took any test or missed a period, how did you realize you were pregnant? Did you have a funny dream? Or did you notice a physical change? Or did you just have a ‘vibe’?
I’m curious to know!

my boobs HURT! I’m not pregnant now but I had a little girl 2 years ago. I knew I was pregnant before any test could tell me… well actually at first I thought I had breast cancer (lol) I was only 19 so I didn’t know any better! I actually also remember having implantation cramps and just thinking they were cramps from my supposed upcoming period.

i didn’t know until i took the test. and then i realized that’s probably why i was breaking out so badly.

I had a lot of breast tenderness and was exhausted with mine! I just wanted to curl up like a cat for hours.

Yep, I had implantation cramps, too. Also, I was tracking my basal body temperature, which remained elevated when it should have decreased for menstruation. That’s when I broke out the pregnancy test.

Cramps, sore breasts, and the ultimate– testing.

I didn’t really know to be honest. I had a twinge of lower back pain one night and I know I started having to pee a lot pretty early on – but I can’t remember if that was before or after I found out. The only way I really knew was when I took a test though! I tried not to over analyze every symptom because I didn’t want to be too obsessed with it, but it was hard

I had a psychic vision that I was going to get pregnant and when. Also that I would hve twins. A boy and a girl. When their birthdates would be, who would be born first, etc..

Missed period. I had a sense I was, but I didn’t want to get my hopes up because I know “Could I be pregnant” symptoms are also symptoms for a lot of other things. But ultimately…the test. lol

I was really hungry, and really tired. Then I got the cramps (mild) for two wks but no period.

LOL— well for a few weeks I kept feeling nausious. (sp??) and I took a test– negative. so i kept going about my business. ( side note– I was on Depo Provera for a realllly long time and came off of it in March 2005— my period was still not normal, so going a few months without one was normal for me and i didnt think twice about not having one) fast forward to July 2006– so im still feeling sick– and i CANT eat pickles!!! i could eat claussen pickels by the jar full. this time the smell of them made me sick ( yes i know weird, since the saying is when your pregnant, you want pickels… LOL ) I took another test… NEGATIVE. WTF. next day i throw up in the shower and i had enough. went to the doctors, for some reason i Made my fiance come with me. the nurse asked me if i wanted to take a pregnancy test and I started lauging, and i said suuuureee why not. so i took the test..
My doctor came in with a huge smile on her face and said well.. your test was positive… and then all the color drained from my face, i could no longer hear, i just could see her mouth move. i was frozen!! and FREAKED OUT…. OMG im pregnant!!!
but it was the best thing in the world. now my daughter is 3 years old and i cannot even imagine life without my bug =)

A weird tired pain between my breasts and shoulders, like I had been carrying a drink tray all night, but like all the time – couldn’t get it to ease up no matter what. I’ve never experienced it before or since.

sore breasts, slight metallic taste, elevated temperature *while tracking*, tired, and “i just knew!”

I didn’t ‘know’. I was temping and was excited my temps weren’t dropping. But my cycle was so far off waiting to see if Aunt Flo was late wasn’t really telling for me. So based on when I ‘thought’ I ovulated I took a test. And it was positive 🙂 My first symptoms were having to pee more frequently (I can usually go FOREVER) and a little bit of lower back pain. I kept waiting for my boobs to get sore but they didn’t. Then the heartburn/MS settled in til about week 18… ugh 🙂

Not pregnant, but my mother had a funny way of telling. As soon as she conceived, she would have the same dream that she was getting chased by alligators. She has been pregnant 5 times, and every one caused her to have this dream.
