I was sure I wasn’t pregnant this month because I didn’t think we timed the BD very well. I should have gotten my period Monday or Tuesday and didn’t, but I’ve only been off the pill since September and my temps were kind of wacky, so I figured I was just “off.” As I was going down the stairs to leave for trivia Tuesday night I thought, hmmm, my boobs are sore. Tested Wednesday morning and sure enough, BFP.

I didn’t know until I was 11 DPO and got a positive on an FRER. I thought I felt implantation cramps at 6DPO, but I also figured it could have just been a coincidence. I had a dream the same night of the cramps that I was pregnant. Tested a few days later, and got a very faint line on a cheapie test. I wasn’t sure if it was an evap line, so I bought an FRER and took it the next morning. BFP That was this weekend and I still don’t have any pregnancy symptoms yet. I was also convinced the day before I got the faint line on the cheapie that I wasn’t pregnant since I didn’t feel pregnant at all, and didn’t have any real symptoms. I had more “symptoms” in previous cycles than I did the cycle I got my BFP.

I figured it would be too early and maybe I am just thinking into things to much. I am probably also reading too much because some forums have women who have said that they started experiencing symptoms the day after conception.
Thank you for all of your input! I will let you know if anything changes in the next two weeks 🙂

As others have said, it’s waaaaay too early for you to feel anything yet. Not to disregard what other women have felt, but hindsight is 50-50. It’s much easier for a pregnant woman to look back and say, “Oh, I just *knew* I was pregnant as soon as it happened,” or “I felt like I was going to throw up a week before I missed my period.” As all TTC women know, it’s easy to assign pregnancy symptoms to everything, but getting that BFP validates symptom spotting. There have been many months during my TTC journey where I had symptoms and seriously thought I was pregnant. I wasn’t, but I had been, I might be one of those people who claimed to know 3DPO because my boobs were sore.

A couple of days before my BFP, I was extremely thirsty and was experiencing some pulling type cramps in my uterus. Much different than period cramps! I waited until I was 2 days late to take a HPT, then I obviously knew for sure I was pregnant!

I felt this exact same way a week before my last period. I was nauseous for two days, boobs were sore, and had constant headaches and some twinges of cramping. I decided I would give it utnil my period due date to check if I was pregnant, and wouldn’t ya know AF was right on time 🙂
I think sometimes we pay too much attention to our bodies, and we are actually the cause of pain or weird feelings. He heighten them ourselves. If you really do think you are pregnant though wait until after AF is due at the very least.

this made me giggle because i’ve felt the same way. I thought i was 2 times in my life and i ALWAYS get AF the day after. never fails!

I ate a bowl of ice cream & immediately vomited then got super dizzy. I knew for sure, I was about 8 weeks.

I knew the day after I missed my period and tested. The night before, I had stabbing needle-like pain in my nipples, but I thought it was just AF coming. Other than that, no symptoms.

I had no symptoms until ~8 weeks. I didn’t know or even really suspect I was pregnant until my “period” (withdrawal bleed, since I was on the pill) was 4 days late and I tested “just to rule it out…” and BFP.
I’m almost 35 weeks along. 🙂

I “knew” about 9 DPO, but then again I had “known” before and been wrong.

About 12 DPO, however the test showed one line (negative) after waiting for 3 min so I tossed into a bathroom trashcan. Then about 4 hours later, I had an odd feeling that made me dig up the test and it showed very faint double line(positive) :). My husband was on elliptical that exact moment and he almost fell off when I told him that we are pregnant! =)

I think a lot of us are different depending on what we’ve experienced. I just felt “different” when I was pregnant and my nipples were sensitive. Symptoms really kicked in when I was 5 weeks though. I just kind of knew 🙂 However, I never got morning sickness really just mild nausea. Good luck to you! I think some women do just “know” 🙂

I was completely oblivious until the BFP at 7.5 weeks. Yeah… I was THAT convinced I wasn’t! I had been sure so many times previously and the test was always negative. Hindsight is totally 20/20 though and looking back, I totally had symptoms from the start. So part of me says, yes you can absolutely know immediately. But the other part of me says you never know until you take the test.
