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

I honestly thought I was late because I was under a lot of stress and worried because my grandma was very ill. Pregnancy was not even a thought, as my fiance was previously told he was unable to have children. The day after we buried my grandma, I was at a Chinese restaurant with my fiance and I was not at all hungry, nor could I stand the smell. I ordered egg drop soup anyway, and when it arrived with his pupu platter, I was so disgusted looking at it, smelling it, etc. I had the waitress put my fiances entree in a to-go box and we hauled it on over to Walmart. We bought a box with 3 tests, took all 3 and they were all positive. =D 9 months later, our daughter was born.

i found out on new years eve 2008 i was 2 weeks late and was ill over xmas but i thought it was just a bug that was going round although i had pcos i didnt think much of it till my partner told me to take a test and it just came up with a faded line so when it came to my 12 week scan i thought i would take another test just so i didnt look stupid and then it came up even darker

Honestly, I knew quite early. I knew at about the two week after conception mark. With both of my children, I had small amount of blood on my toilet paper. They call this the implantation bleed. And even though I knew I was pregnant, I did take pregnancy tests. The first few were quite light and when it was popping out at me I would go and get confirmed with my doctor. Always positive..weird huh?

I'd have to say it was the morning sickness. Which was very literal in pregnancy. I was only sick in the morning after I had been up and thrown up a couple time then I was fine the rest of the day. Well and there was the one time my bf was eating tuna for lunch that smell still sets me off.

Actually the guy I was dating told me I was pregnant. I said how do you know that - he said because my face had started breaking out on my cheeks and my breasts were getting big. But I couldn't tell and so I took a prenancy test. And yes, sure enough I was - he was happy and so am I. :)

Normally I would start my period before I was actually supposed to, so when it was the day before and I hadn't started yet I was like okay this is strange. So the day I was supposed to start there was still no period. I took a test that night and it automatically popped up as positive. Then the next morning I took one cause I was like there is no way and it said positive too. I went to a clinic to confirm it. Sure enough that test was positive. I honestly thought I couldn't have children, but proved me wrong lol

I didn't find out I was pregnant til i was 3 months. I was getting my period still but it was much lighter & shorter then usual. Also my boobs were a different type of sore then usual. My husband & I were trying to get pregnant for a few months so i bought a few pregnancy tests & every month i took one & it always said negative. So we stopped trying for a month & then what i said in the begining started to happen & i had 1 more pregnancy test left over & said what the hell i will use it & yipee it came back positive! So i guess i would say i just had a feeling that i was pregnant & my intuition was right!

I never knew that i was pregnant it was actually my husband that had mentioned it to me one day when i woke up and had really bad heartburn and was throwing up and he ask me if there was anyway that i could be pregnant and i said "no" so we left it for a bit and we went into birthright and i was pregnant...that was with my first and with my second my son was only 8 months okd when i found out that i was already 6 months pregnant and never knew it and again it was my husband that told me that i was and he was right....

I first knew, for my first one, when my period was two weeks late and when it came it was really short. then one day a few weeks later I had a really sharp cramp go through my abdomen. When my period was five days late a couple weeks later I knew for sure. This time I knew when my last period came late and I started getting hormonal last week but I was in too good of a mood.

omg. for me, with my first, i just knew. i guess you could call it mothers instinct. i just knew.

but with my second. ha! i didnt even notice my missed periods! (i'm not regular anyway) but for about a month, i had a low back ache, and i just put icy hot on it, and never thought anything about it. and i knew my clothes werent fitting as well as they normally did, and still didnt think anything about it. and then, one morning, it literally hit me, all of a sudden one morning! i was setting in our kitchen, and my husband was cooking, and i was like, "i think im pregnant!" lol. and he was like "...what..." lol. 3 ept's later, and 1 dr's pregnancy test, bam! lol. so crazy.

Me and my Hubby starting trying for a baby on vacation in Maui last April we started trying on the 19th and on the 27th or so we went on a drive and I got car sick...........I knew right then!!
and had a positive pregnancy test May 7th!!( my period wasent even due for 4 more days) the doctor thinks we got pregnant in between the 19th and 24th as crazy as some people think I am I knew right away :)

[deleted account]

I started feeling sick to my stomach and my lower back hurt, kinda like right before my period starts, but it didn't start. I'm irregular, so I can't define "late", but after almost two weeks of feeling the symptoms without getting the period, combined with being hungry but not able to eat much without feeling naseous, I finally took a test. Positive! So if your appitite is changing, that was a first warning sign for me!

I just new, I don't even think I was late maybe a day or two. I was just extremely tired, falling asleep on the couch after work at 5 and being able to sleep all the way to morning. And I also felt like I was getting my period, but nothing ever came. I took two home pregnancy tests (positive) because I felt so weird, and I was planning on going out for birthday drinks that weekend. I had my pregnancy confirmed by a doctor on my 24th birthday. Who asked me how I even knew I was pregnant since it was so early on?

I started getting dizzy and feeling weird with my first one and knew something was up.
This pregnancy I was a couple of days late and was feeling extra hungry, irritable, emotional and my boobs were super sore.

I knew because I took a cross country trip to go and marry my military sweetheart. The first day, we kinda got lazy and I don't take birth control because of all of the side effects. We really didn't think too much of it but I knew about 2 weeks later because my sense of smell went crazy and I was feeling tired for almost no reason. I have never been much of a napper and I would go in the middle of the day to take naps... Then we got a ( + ) then took another 2 tests spread a few days apart and they all came up the same way.

I found out last February! We weren't actively trying, nor trying to prevent it from happening. The major clue I had was that I DID NOT want to be touched at all, by anyone. I am not usually like that. That was my big clue that something was up. :)

[deleted account]

I found out i was pregnant when i was feeling ill everytime i was around certian foods, when my boobs were sore. And talkin to some of my friends who had babies they were saying that they felt the same way i did.

Ha I was 5 months preg before I knew, and it was only because I wasn't losing any weight that i was trying to shift, I thought it was something wrong with me so went to Dr and he did a preg test and came back positive! I thought he was joking! I was 5 months preg and size 10! But it seemed that once I knew I was preg I just ballooned overnight! I look back now and think I was so lucky not to have any morning sickness or anything and lucky that I'm not a drinker or do drugs or anything! It was a bit rushed trying to organize everything tho coz baby came 3 weeks early and we we were only just getting used to the fact that I was pregnant!

I was walking past a billboard on my way to work and I started crying like a baby. It was a billboard for the Make A Wish Foundation of a little girl. I was a wreck. I had seen the billboard dozens of times before, but this time, it was different. And the rest of the week seemed to follow the trend. The downfall was, I was working on a campaign for World Vision. I kept crying because I wanted help children. Its not like it was my first day on the job, I just seemed to be an emotional wreck.



I was not even due to have my period for another week, but after a few days of this a few people suggested I take a pregnancy test. So I did. In fact I took two. I was a little surprised with the positive result.

I was a day late, which wasnt too out of the ordinary because I was going to school and working which was sometimes stressful, but I had a feeling that I should take a test, and I was right I was pregnant.

It's pretty funny because I didn't think I was pregnant but my husband kept telling me I was.I had already taken 3 tests so I just thought Id start my period by the end of the week.My boobs were sore but i just thought I was about to start.I kept saying im about to start I can feel it and he said no your pregnant because you are moody alot.So he went to work and just before he got home that night I went ahead and took my last test and this was at 11:45 pm.So I was preparing to get a shower and right before I got in i looked at it and sure enough it said pregnant.I started jumping up and down because I had just lost my first child 2 months prior to her disease Spinal Muscualr Atrophy but then I became scared.I called my friend around the corner and she didnt believe me so she came and saw the test for herself.I went to the drs had it confirmed and made an appointment to have the testing done for the baby.Long story short after a long 5 weeks we got the results and we are having a SMA FREE baby and its another GIRL!Im due August 24 and I cant wait to meet her!!

[deleted account]

I knew because I knew how my body felt before I had my period and things were just not the same, plus my breast were very sore. I took the test on the day I was suppose to get my period and another one the next day because my boyfriend wanted to be sure.

i knew the morning after i had sex. i just didnt feel right... like something has happeneing to my body and i didnt know what it was. the next weekend i decided to go camping, and because there was no way i would know if i was pregnant, my friends and i grabbed a 24 and headed north. i opened my first beer and gave it away without drinking it. the next morning while camping i noticed my breasts felt different.. hot and tingly almost... i took a test the day my period was due.. it was faintly positive. so i waitied 5 days and it turned positive while i was still peeing on it.

I just knew. I was about 1 or 2 days late with both of my children and I just knew.
I felt different. I cant explain it.

With my first i was going to the gyno to have an exam and i was suppost to start any day. Well after the exam (and no they didn't even test me for pregnancy so they didn't even know i was pregnant at the time) i bled just a little and thought my period was coming. But it never came. My boobs got really sore and by now i was a week late. So i went out and got a pregnancy test and it was positive. With my other two i took a test after i was about 1 day late and i had no cramping like i normally do with my period. I also was bloated and boobs were really sensitive and had to pee more frequently.

As crazy as it sounds I knew right away, it was just a feeling I had. I debated on getting a test but me and my bf had dealt with it before(I have never really had a predictable cycle) and it never turned out to be, so he wanted me to wait a while longer but I just had a feeling so I ended up getting two without him knowing and they both came back positive. I never believed when people would tell me that they just knew it when they were, but now I def. do now.

Honestly, I just woke up one mornng and the first thing that entered my mind was 'I'm pregnant.' Very strange but very true in the end. I was late, but that's not unusual for me, I'm all over the place and my boobs were a little sensitive but i didn't really put anything together until that morning.

I didn't have a clue that i was pregnant to be honest, me and my partner were both told that we cudn't have kids so the thought never entered my head. I only did a test because i was ill in work and my friend told me she thought i was pregnant coz i had some of the symptoms. At the time i thought it was a horrible thing to tell me coz she knew i cudn't have kids and i only did the test to prove her wrong lol but she got the last laugh didn't she lmao xx

I didnt really have any symptoms until I was 11 weeks prego.. i started to get morning sickness which made me take a pregnancy test...and it was positive! I went for an ultrasound to find out how far along i was because my periods were so irregular and they told me i was 11 weeks prego!!!

My sister was pretty sure I was pregnant. I thought I had food poisoning for 12 weeks before I actually knew. I just felt really rough and couldnt get out the house at all. I was told by a doctor that I couldnt have children so when I found out I was actually pregnant I thought they were lying to me.

[deleted account]

This is gonna sound weird, but my husband knew before I did. I was showing signs and he kept telling me I was. I didn't believe him bc I was told @ 17 that I couldn't have kids. One day I went to the hospital and found out I was!!! I didn't show signs til I was 3 months.
