When did you first know you were pregnant? Was it when you were late? When your boobs were sore? What clued you off?

I had always said i was expecting since my LMP but it didn't dawn on me until almost 9 days after my 20th b'day.. that day i was going to class, it was rainy, my socks were wet, and i just was tired and agitated.. something told me go to WalMart and buy some stuff for class.. and i got the stuff the class i eased over to the family planning aisle, got a 20 oz Sprite and bought every flavor Hawaiian Punch they had!! I was that nervous! lol Took the test when i got home and 2 minutes later my mom called.. I said "i took a test" and she ran from that! lol she knew i was but i kept denying it! Mothers do know best!

With number 1, it was due to our dog becoming overly protective of me... would lie in front of my tummy and snarl at ppl. Number 2, my neice said to me 'you have a baby in your tummy!' very matter of factly. NEVER had a regular cycle so could never use that as any indication

I knew i was pregnant when i was 3 weeks, i was on the pill, but i had instant food aversions, and my nipples were so tender! I also had a pill period for a week, a few days of nothing, then a 2 day full blown heavy period. Took 4 tests, and they were all faint positives. All that money i wasted on pregnancy tests! But i couldn't really believe it, and none of it was planned, so it was a shock!!

I knew when I realized I had lost weight but my bras kept getting smaller. And when while waiting for the pregnancy test results I was so excited I couldn't watch it change like I normally did and I wasn't praying I wasn't pregnant because I just knew I was. Also I never miss my period and it was over a week late.

Well I didn't know until I was two months pregnant. I was meeting with my GYN to identify potenial barriers to why I wasn't getting pregnant after trying for a year and a half. My husband had his semen tested and let me tell you that was a trial.... anyways, she came in and said... YOUR PREGNANT! I felt so blessed. I have a heart shaped uterus; therefore, it's harder to conceive and carry a baby full term not to mention being overweight! Anyways, I bought myself a plus size pregnancy book.. and here I am 8 months later with a handsome and healthy baby boy.

It took us 7 months to fall pregnant, and we eventually gave up trying. I knew insitinctively, having this voice at the back of my mind, ignoring it all the time because I thought after 7 months of trying... its not possible! The one night my husband and I got into a fight and all I kept saying to myself was, "I have to calm down or else I am gonna upset the baby" turned out there was a reason for it! I then heard of other woman who have also experienced the same experience... Strange huh?

With my second, I just knew it!

My friend at the time was 9 months prego andjust kept insisting I was prego. I think my period was a day late but i didnt think anything of it cus it was normally couples days late. So she came into my job a couple days later asking if i started my period and i told her no so she decided to take a prego test off the shelf and made me take it. The results showed up so quick. My son wasnt planned. I started freakin out. But if it wasnt for my period being a few days late i would of never knew. My son didnt make me sick at all, I just liked to eat alot.

I knew I was pregnant right before I took the test, that's why I took it. It was 3 days before I was due for my period, but I was working out as usual and just didn't feel right. I had serious urges to drink beer (which I never had before) and I just knew something was going on.

Well I was on birthcontrol so thought that I would pretty safe but near the end of my cycle I started to feel different and I just knew I was pregnant. The day after my missed period I peed on a stick and presto it was positive

I knew 3 days after conception that I was pregnant. I woke up that morning and just felt that I was. Sure enough, I started having symptoms and then my daughter was born in December 2008.

i was a bartender and in one day i had 3 of my regular customers (all men) ask me if i was pregnant.. i thought they were crazy but with 3 people asking in one day i decided to prove them wrong. well, they were right LOL and at this point i had no symptoms had not even had time to miss my period and somehow people can tell by just looking at you! although thinking back i remember going out for a friends birthday the week before i took the test and i had ONE BEER and i was throwing up. That had never happened before so i guess that was really my only sign but i didn't figure that one out until i actually had a positive test, I will say that about a week or two after i found out i was pregnant my boobs hurt BAD even the water hitting them in the shower hurt, and i would go from not even thinking about food to ready to kill for food in a matter of 5 minuets... and so the first trimester ( crazy pregnant woman stage) began.. LOL

when my husband looked @ me & was like "I think you're pregnant" & I looked @ him like he had done lost his ever-lovin' mind.. & he said he was convinced I was & I told him I seriously doubted it.. but that if he really wanted me to I'd take another test to see if I was.. & I was.. how freakin' weird is that.. I had NO CLUE until I took a test randomly.. and I was probably only like 5wks at the time.. How did he know!? I had no signs at all!! Weirdo.. lol.. I'll never forget that convo or that day..

Would you believe it was my husband that told me that i was pregnant lol. I didnt have a clue but i was wondering if my boobs were getting bigger. You would think that having a small chest size and then finding them suddenly ballooning to a bigger size would have clicked something in my head.lol I actually made a bet that i was not pregnant and...funnily enough i lost! I dont think i will need a pregnancy test next time around lol i have the cheapest one here lol

I didn't have any symptoms, like morning sickness, tender breasts, The only thing i had was a two missed periods and craving anything chocolate. thats was when i was around 10 weeks along. then my boyfriend said " babe you might be Pregnant, so i went to get a home kit and it showed negitive, then went to my local dr and it came up positive. ( relationship was an abusive one ). i did two kits and they both came back negitive. the doctor i went to, that test came back negitive as well,

I suspected I was pregnant when I had sore breasts. I could only remember having this problem when I was going through puberty and they were growing so I figured they were growing again so they must be growing for a reason. I took 3 tests later that day and they were all positive.

I had no clue I was ever pregnant. I went to the emergency room for kidney infections and found out that I was 7 1/2 months pregnant and that it was a boy. I freaked!!! I cryed and screamed so loud that everyone in the hallways could hear me! I had no side effects what so ever. I was still having a regular period, was on birthcontrol, had recieved the gardascil shots and everything. No weight gaining, no sore boobs, NOTHING!!! It was deafently an eye opener!

I was 5 days late and pretty scared to take a test, but when I did a faded second line appeared. My heart stopped. It's the strangest feeling when you find out your pregnant for the first time. My boyfriend (now fiance) and I couldnt sleep that night and we were scared crying and smiling at the same time. My baby girl has changed my life more then I ever thought was possible. Now it feels like I'm living a dream everyday. She truly is a blessing from God. She was about 3 weeks along that night we found out.

My sister, mom, and I drove 2 hours to Las Vegas for a day of shopping and just having a day out. About and hour into it I was feeling a little tired, naseous, and off balance. Then 3 hours into it I told them that I was gonna have to get some sugar in me or something to eat and I went to sit in the food court. As I sat there I started to realized I was a week late! I kept my mouth shut the rest of the day and the whole drive home (it was soo hard not to say anything). I went home that night, my fiance and I took 3 tests...all different brands of course (I know super silly)....and all of them were positive. No such thing as a false positive. I knew that but it was such an exciting night we just kept on testing :o) I found out I was exactly 5 weeks preganant at the time :o)

My story is kinda funny, I found out Christmas 2004 that I was pregnant but here is the story:

I was at my aunt's home feeling a little sick after eating the meal. I was getting sicker as the day went on so my aunt feeling bad said that I had food poisoning and that I should go to the ER.

Arriving at the ER the nurse handed me the cup, btw I was told that I would NEVER get pregnant, I said that I didn't need the cup as I can't get pregnant she told me to fill it anyhow to rule that out.

About 20 minutes later the nurse comes back into the room and says "Merry Christmas....Your pregnant!"

BTW I did call my aunt right away to tell her that her food wasn't what made me sick and she was either overjoyed I was pregnant or that her cooking wasn't going to kill me.

And that was my story.

It was a total shock to me. I had fallen and went to the doctors to have them check our my back. They wanted to make sure before they did some treatments that I wasn't pregnant, and at the time I was on the pill!...so I didn't think I was but I said why not....And to my surprise...I now have a wonderful baby boy...I was about 7 weeks along when I found out, and I am one of those lucky women with irregular periods so to be a little off wasn't a shocker... But I can say now that I am very scared to trust the pill for our only form of birth control...I had an IUD, but it just didn't work for me...anyways, good luck with everything!

Well I knew I was pregnant the day I was at work and I have a 200 bale hay truck to offload and restack by hand. I felt really awful afterwards....just drained more than usual and sore. Shame I had already hurt my back before I knew I was pregnant. Made for a very crippling and painful pregnancy. All fine now though....so its all good :)

My boobs were ridiculously sore - to the point where it was hard to sleep at night (I lay on my belly...) also I was cramping - it felt like I as about to start my period. Those were definitely the very first two signs I had

I felt really sick if I was in the sun, alcohol tasted gross, and boobs hurt. I just didn't feel right, like how you feel when you are getting a cold. I also had an allergic reaction to a medication I had been on for years! I found out when I was 4 wks!

I have a freaky kind of intuition when it comes to pregnancy. I'd been off the pill for only 2 weeks and then we forgot to use something one night... three days later, I got sore boobs and my nipples felt like there were pins going into them and that's when I knew what had happened. Several boxes of pregnancy tests later that all came up with negative and three weeks after I thought I knew, I went to the doctors to find out what was going on and only then did it come up positive!!!

With my first pregnancy my step-mom suggested I take a test because I was really lathargic so I did and it was positive, but at 9 wks I miscarried. My husband and I decided to try again shortly after. I know this is weird but here's the story...

I was working at a nursing home and 4 days before my period was due and I realized I hadn't had a bm in like three days so the first thing that crossed my mind was "am I pregnant". I don't know why but that all that came to my mind. I didn't want to get my hopes up so I quickly pushed it out of my mind but for the following three days the thought kept comming back and I would just keep telling myself that I'm not and my period will come on Thursday. Well thursday came and went; no period. Friday; no period. Saturday I was working over time and i confided in a co-worker that I thought I was. That night I decided to tell my husband and we decided that if I didn't start by Monday morning we'd go get a test. Monday came and I took the test. I didn't want to get to excided incase something happend so I did not believe the first two but I knew after the third one that I really was.

I didn't have any symptoms and my period didn' stop til the end of Feb. I found out I was 8 months pregnant in June. My son came 3 weeks early:) My clue to take a test was strange feelings in my stomach that I thought was digestive issues that I've had for years. the pain was worse than normal and didn't want the dr. to keep asking if I was pregnant so I took a test, and boy oh boy it was positive.
