How did you know?

How did you know you were pregnant? What convinced you to test? What were your first symptoms?

  • Well I noticed my boobs started hurting, I was emotional, I was VERY hungry all the time and I was crampy weeks before I was supposed to get my period which isn't normal for me. I normally get my PMS symptoms about 3 days before I get my period. I didn't really think much about it, just wrote it off as maybe I was getting my period early. My SO kept telling me I was pregnant, that "he just knew". Couple days later on my birthday, I went to a psychic just for fun. She told me I was pregnant and I brushed it off. My mom kept telling me I was pregnant too. Finally, 8 days before my missed period I decided to take a test since everyone was convienced I was pregnant and..well, it was positive lol. Another thing that made me test was the day before I took the test, I noticed that all my veins in the chest were very noticable. I pointed them out to my SO and he laughed and said I should just listen and take the damn test already.

  • I don't get regular periods EVER sometimes it would be a year between them, I was NEVER concerned about pregnancy, I was sexually active, and on the depo shot- well One day I was just sitting on my sisters couch and was like, I think I might be pregnant, that thought NEVER went through my mind before, I had no symptoms, In fact through out my pregnancy (im now 38 weeks) I haven't been sick, my boobs never hurt, I never had swelling NO symptoms at all. I took a test THAT day, and I was pregnant!! For me I think it was just intuition, which I didn't believe in before it happend to me!

  • first of all, i noticed i was ovulating (based on cervical mucus) the day after unprotected sex. so i was worried! then a couple weeks later my boobs started hurting, which they don't do during my period. so i tested when my period was due and it was positive!

  • Well, we were testing incessantly, so the test was how I knew! =) I think some of the symptoms were psychosomatic, so it's hard to say what was real and what wasn't that early on, ya know? But the morning sickness was real!
