    We were TTC for a long time, and I was charting, so when temps were still up at 11dpo I tested about 3 days before my missed period.  Only real symptom was the sorest boobs I’ve ever had…. and unfortunately they lasted my entire first trimester.

    @lindseywink:  My boobs got huge and I felt off. SO I tested. I can’t remember if it was before or after my missed period.

    @lindseywink:  I think it depends on the person, but it’s usually a very small amount detected by a basal thermometer that measure to the hundredth of a degree.  Check out the fertility friend website, it’s fairly informative, and even if you just start charting without actually knowing much the software does a lot of the work for you.

    I had implantation bleeding so I was pretty sure. I tested 4 days later and it was positive. It was technically before my “missed period” but only because I have irregular cycles and I don’t even know if my period would have come then or earlier or ever at all. On top of the implantation bleeding, the thing that raised my suspicions was that I was peeing constantly, almost every 1-2 hours, and at least once in the middle of the night.

    I knew for sure about a month after I got a positive pregnancy test….I was in denial for quite some time 😉 I think the first symptoms I had were serious cramping with no period, and I was three days late when I decided to get a test.

    Before my missed period, used First Response 6 days earlier pregnancy test. At 11 Days Past Ovulation, light pink second line appeared, positive 🙂 But I already knew because was feeling nonstop bloating a week before test. My body felt different, so I knew it then.

    @lindseywink:  the only way I knew was bc my period was 2 days late & that never happens. Only symptoms are exhaustion & love of all things salty!

    @lindseywink:  My first son…within a week or two.  I’m not sure exactly.  With the second…I was already 13 weeks gone!

    I had basically no early pregnancy symptoms besides maybe a slightly heightened sense of smell, which I thought very little of at the time.

    I didn’t know I was pregnant until my period was a day late and my temp was still elevated (I was charting). Even then, I was only midly suspicious since we hadn’t been trying very hard and I figured the chances were slim. I didn’t really believe it until I tested with a FRER and got a very obvious positive.

    We went away for a weekend and I was supposed to get AF that Sunday. I was kind of pissed that it was going to come that weekend. Well it never came even though my breasts were huge and sore and I was crampy. The cramps weren’t as severe as I get with AF but it felt like it would come the following day. Finally Tuesday morning I was like well I’m 2 days latnow ice taken tests before missing my period so now I actually have reason to I might as well. And the second line showed up within 3 seconds of me putting it on the flat surface.

    I had zero symptoms and decided to test on a whim 4 days before AF was due. It was very clearly positive on a FRER and I even got a “Pregnant” on a digital test!

    I knew when I was week pregnant. Crazy. I think maybe because I’ve had a child so I sniffed out the sore boobs right away. Just took a test yesterday and today. I’m 2.5 weeks along

    I just got my BFP on Sat at 9DPO.  I chart, so could tell that my normal patterns weren’t the same, plus I’ve been pretty nauseous already.  That plus tender breasts, I had a pretty good feeling that I was pregnant.
