When did you *know* you were pregnant?

I suffer from Hyperemesis Gravidarum so throwing up non stop and not being able to eat or drink anything has been my sign before BFP both times.

I was about 11 dpo and I threw up breakfast for the first time in my life, as well as my boobs were so sore and I’d never had that before.

of course this was only our 2nd month trying so I didn’t think it was actually a BFP until later that night we went for dinner with some family and hubby made a joke about shooting blanks. I took a test when we got home as a joke and low and behold it was a BFP! Currently 19 weeks!

I believe people who *know* before they get confirmation are right by coincidence. After 3 years of trying, in the beginning I had a feeling so many times and never once got the bfp. 

Then I gave up and stopped trying to sense it. When I got my bfp I was not expecting it.

Symptoms different from PMS symptoms didnt start for me until I was around 5 weeks.

I wouldn’t say I ‘knew’ but I did have 2 symptoms before getting a BFP. I usually only cramp the day my period starts, but I had been having mild cramps on and off for a week and a half before testing, also, the week before I tested my boobs felt heavier. Other symptoms started after getting a positive.

I woke up one morning and my hand just happened to be laying on my lower belly. I was half asleep and felt a small, hard lump that I couldn’t press down or suck in. I had a positive HPT that day and found out I was 14 weeks with twins two days later.

I was driving to work and suddenly felt extremely exhausted, like my head and shoulders felt heavy and it was an effort to sit upright kind of exhausted. I was only 8dpo, but I thought “hmmm…maybe I’ll take a pregnancy test tonight.”

We had been going through IUI, and it was our last cycle before deciding to move forward with IVF or adoption. We had been trying for a little over a year, and I was exhausted mentally and physically. I told my husband that I just knew this IUI failed. He told me that he thought it worked and I got upset with him. I was super emotional, and normally I am calm and collected. I chalked my emotions up to the stress of deciding between IVF and adoption, paired with my disappointment because I was certain my IUI failed. The next morning, something prompted me to test. I did. It was positive. I called my RE, asked if I could be squeezed in for Betas. I got an appointment and it was confirmed- our final IUI worked. My husband and I both cried and our baby is due in early May.

I was PMSing (or so I thought) but when the symptoms ended, I still didn’t have my period.

Other than finding out via blood test, we both assumed earlier based on the fact that I’d never been so late before. I also got consistent but very mild cramping for longer than usual at PMS time and my boobs started getting extra sore, yet no AF. 

Now I’m 8 weeks along with twins ☺️

cocobee91 :  For me I cant say I knew until I got the bfp. But I have been pregnant twice. One that resulted in a missed miscarrage and one that resulted in my daughter. Both times I was pregnant I noticed an increase in cm and I was constipated before I even got a bfp. Dont know if that was a coincidence or not! A PMS symptom for me is I get soar breast so one pregnancy when I didnt have soar breast I thought that was a sign but the second pregnancy my breast hurt way worse early on…..so I’ve come to think each pregnancy I could get completely different symtoms. Good luck ttc!!

My boobs hurts half way the month before doing the pregnancy test. Did the test a week after my period was due and it was positive.

I got my period on August 1st (usual/explected for my regular cycles) and we tried for the first time that month.

I had not planned to do a test until after I missed my period, I was planning to wait until September 1st. But I woke up on August 27th severly crampy and depressed. I cried all day (luckily my husband was at work and I was home for the day) I felt like I should be medicated or something like I was going crazy. I thought if this is my period I don’t think I can be off the pill for my sanity… It was the middle of the day and I thought I’d take a test. I did not think it was going to be positive as I was feeling super depressed/negative. It was a blazing positive LOL. So that made me feel less crazy!
