  • I was 6 weeks before I figured out I was pregnant this last time. My cycles were really off before I got pregnant. One month they were 3 weeks and the next they were 5 weeks. So it was several weeks before I realized I had missed a period.

  • It was around 9-10 weeks when we found out we were expecting our first. All the home tests kept coming up negative.

  • I was 9 wks when we found out with our 1st, and 4 wks this time around. My friend was 15 wks before she found out she was pregnant with her 1st, her cycles were never regular she went in for an ultrasound because her appendix ruptured and they found a 15 wk old baby as well =)

  • Years ago when I was in college, a friend down the hall in the Dorm was pregnant but she kept it a secret...and nobody knew until she was 8 months along and secretly got married during Christmas vacation/break. We were shocked!!!
    I always knew within a few weeks because I had so many symptoms. Morning sickness, big boobs , tummy popping out. My babies all kicked by four months and since I was skinny , I felt those kicks as soon as they started. I am always amazed when women say they didn't know they were pregnant.....I don't get it.
