I honestly had a gut feeling the night we conceived- and I know for certain the night because we were able to BD only once during my fertile time. I had just read that morning how women with a tilted uterus should roll over on their belly after sex, so I did that for the first time that night and I just felt like that was going to do it for us. **I don’t truly believe that rolling on my belly was what finally got me pregnant, but it made me feel more confident that it’d work.
Other than that, the only symptoms I’d say I had was waking up the day before I tested with a splitting headache and dry mouth. I felt like I was hungover and I hadn’t had a drink in about a week, so it was definitely not normal for me. It was not until a few days after my BFP that I started to feel incredibly bloated (lasted about 3 days) and crampy.

This last one I knew the day after ovulation. 4 of the other 5 pregnancies I’ve had, I’ve also known although not QUITE at fast as this one. My body seems to be pretty clear on when it’s pregnant, not so good at carrying to term or telling me when I’m miscarrying.

@cmbr: LOL. This sounds just like me. If I was right everytime I “just knew” I’d have had 2 babies by now.

@SaraP2012: I knew the night before I took a test and it was like 4 days before my missed period. I was at a girls get together the night before and felt really sick after eating crab dip that I normally love and then I got what I later found out was heart burn. I had never ever had heart burn before and as I was laying in bed that night in pain from it I just KNEW I was pregnant. I woke up the next morning and took a test and it was positive. It was our first month not preventing so we were so lucky to conceive right away!

Darling Husband and I were arguing over me being pregnant. I wasn’t charting. About a week and a half before my period was supposed to start I was feeling pretty crappy. I usually feel crappy before I get my period but Darling Husband kept insisting there was something different about me. One major difference is that I was SUPER bloated. I thought my period started but later I found out it was implantation bleeding. POAS 3 times all negative. Called my doc, she had me take a blood test a week after my late period . I did and I was pregnant.

I knew when I noticed that my breast were more tender than normal when my period was due. I got my BFP 4 days before my missed period.

@MrsDTMajor: Congratulations!! I feel the same way… I dont usually feel this way and all signs point to pregnancy. The past few days I have also woken up with achy legs and back. Maybe I am reading way too much into things but either I am pregnant or my mind is playing really crazy tricks on my body!

i was INSANELY ill even though i was about 9 or 10 weeks. and i was constantly exhausted. i was nauseous, i couldn’t even look at certain foods anymore, and i was just so, so tired. and i felt ‘weird’ like all over. i didn’t know i was pregnant at the time, but i kept thinking i was coming down with something so i kept telling my fiance that i was ‘just not feeling good’. he thought i was being a hypochondriac or something but lo and behold…the symptoms were explained. i was really shocked that i was pregnant because i thought i was just falling ill.

I was feeling sort of crampy about a week post-O, but not like pre-period cramps. I was definitely looking for implantation signs, and I definitely felt like something was going on. When AF didn’t show up, I was hardly surprised.

I noticed my boobs were sore from ovulation to the day AF was due. I thought that was strange because normally they only hurt for a few days on/ after ovulation. I also felt sharp pain in my lower back around implantation that made me gasp Which was strange.

My nipples were SO sore!! That’s how I knew before my missed period.

I had the same symptoms as I do leading up to AF (e.g. lower back pain, tightness in my lower ab/pelvis region, sore boobs) so I honestly didn’t know. I had already spent two months going “I think this is it!” only to be disappointed so by this cycle, I gave up on trying to figure it out or not. I finally waited until I was late and got a really really positive BFP!
