How soon do you think women ACTUALLY now when they're prenant before they take a test

My Grandma still swears and declares that she knew the next morning that she was....highly unlikely to me, but hey I'm not gonna argue with Grandma. I knew the day my period was suppose to start,my belly was already showing which Is probably hard to believe too lol, but I had felt kinda different before that anyway. How many of you knew before you took the pregnancy test and what were your symptoms??

  • The first time I didn't know. With the four losses I had I knew within days of dtd. With my son, the last one, I knew within minutes of dtd. Got in a quicky with DH before he left to go out of town. Got up and checked my period tracker, realized where I was in my cycle, and knew. Every time I've had sex on that particular day in my cycle I got pregnant. So it was a 'no brainer'.

  • I was 6 weeks when I knew. That's when I started feeling nauseas and then took a test.

  • I was almost 3 mos with my dd but my mom said she knew right afterwards when she got prego with my little sister (her 3rd child) so i would say the more kids you have the better you know your body and the easier it is to tell.

  • Haha, with me I knew around 4 or 5 weeks, which is weird bc my periods are irregular and I didn't have any sympotoms (still haven't at 23 weeks)....and it was due to a malfunction. I didn't TEST until 7 weeks for those reasons, but I knew.

    I guess I was just really in tune with my body.

  • I didn't know UNTIL I had a test done. I hadn't missed a period, and my Dr. only did the test because he was writing me a specific prescription and I didn't take birth control. I couldn't have been more surprised!

  • I always know when cigarettes start to make me sick and I can smell EVERYTHING.... I hate the smell of change and I swear if there is a penny in the room I can smell it and I get so nauseous.
    Thats happened to me everytime! So theres never been any denying it!

  • With my son, I kid you not, I knew as soon as I woke up the next day. It was confirmed with a doctor before I ever missed a period. I just knew. This time around I didn't have a clue. I was about 5 1/2 weeks and tested because we were going on vacation and i didn't want to wonder the whole time I was there.
