How did YOU know?

I need some help. Trying for a girl leaves a lot of doubt in your mind whether you did what you're supposed to or if you had sex close enough to O to conceive. I try not to assume anything, so here are the signs I've noticed 10-11 days after O:

*Darker areolas starting yesterday - I read this can happen before period sometimes too
*Stuffy nose the past couple days - I don't get allergies
*Boobs aren't as swollen as they usually are before period, in fact, they feel normal
*Nipples look larger and stay somewhat hard
*Haven't been as moody/bitchy as I usually am, I'm actually being quite needy/emotional
*Libido hasn't dropped like it usually does week before period
*Started yesterday, my metabolism feels like it's going 100 miles an hour, I eat & eat & feel starving not even an hour later. I thought I'd gain weight, but haven't.
*Temp 99+
*Cervix goes from SHOW to in between high/low & soft/hard.

  • I only knew by taking a test. I didn't get any "symptoms" until a couple weeks into the pregnancy, then I puked every day for 4 months.

  • OP: I had implantation bleeding with my son but was on honeymoon so I just assumed it was my period. I think I would have noticed more signs if I had been paying closer attention to my cycle and body. The plane ride home I was in puke city, didn't stop till around 4 months as well. I lost 10lbs but put more than enough back on haha.
