  • i was the same way with my first i had no clue till i was about 9wks along or so.
    with my second i just knew long befor i could take a test. I thinnk sometimes you just know your pregnant. Its like a gut feeling or something.
    hopefully you are if thats what you want and congrats.

  • I was the same...but it was about a week later for me. With my first I was almost 3 months. With my second, I just knew like a week later that something was different. I took a test and it was negative, tossed it in the trash. The next day, I got it out and there was a faint line. I thought that maybe it was cause it sat so long and got saturated with my urine. My friend told me that line doesn't show at all unless it detects hormones. So I went to my family doc that afternoon, and he did a blood test. I was pregnant. We weren't TTC either, so it wasn't like I was testing all the time. I was on BC. SO yeah, I think it could be possible to  just know.

  • I knew right away with my first. I just knew some how. What's weirder was the my husband knew too. HE told ME that I was lol.

  • I dont think you know the second it happens. I thought I was several times and I haven't been yet. Sometimes people want it so bad you can fool yourself into thinking you are. I hope you are but theres not a way of ACTUALLY knowing until you can test for it. It all a bunch of old wives talkes we want to believe.
