When did you find out you were pregnant?

Did you find out by a home pregnancy test, and if so how far along were you when you got the positive result? Or did you find out some other way that you were pregnant and how far along were you then? Also, if you used a home pregnancy test, what brand did you used and/or find most reliable?

  • I found out I was pregnant the day I was supposed to start my period. I "felt" pregnant and didnt get PMS like usual so I bought a $4 Equate test at WalWart and got a faint positive...since it was faint I bought a ClearBlue 2 days later just to make sure and bc my cousin wouldnt shut up saying that just bc it was faint didnt mean I was pregnant.

  • I was 11 weeks, I just took a PT and it set POSITIVE what a surprise...I didn't had any symptoms at all.

  • I found out at 18 days past ovulation with my first, 14 with my second, both using a dollar store HPT. I knew I was pregnant 3 days before the test with my first because I'd been charting, and was fairly certain 7 days before the test with my second because of symptoms.

  • i took a home pregnancy test. i was 7 weeks along and i used first response and got a very positive result before i could even lay the test on the counter.

  • I took a home pregnancy test that my co-worker bought for me at the 99 cents store. I was skeptic at first to use it but, it worked! I was 12 weeks pregnant. After that, I made an appointment to see a gynecologist.
