  • We had been on the "Let's not take BC and see what happens" route for about a year. So we would just have fun and not think about it. Well one time we had to drive 4 hours to his folks for the weekend I had to keep stopping to pee (which usually I don't and can hold it until I get there). So I thought I was getting a UTI. The following Wednesday at work I started feeling really crappy. The office was 61 degrees and I was suh-weaty so I went home early. I told my SO that I was going to the store to pick up some flu stuff. While I was there I had the thought "It's almost time for my period...maybe while I'm here I should get a test." I stood in line thinking how I was just wasting $14 on a test that I was sure was going to be negative.

    Went home, peed on the stick, set it on the floor next to me while I read the little book of info they give you while I was waiting. First and second glance- no result. Third glance- PREGNANT!

  • ok so first off this is my second was about a month and a half until my wedding day and i was feeling tired and very nausea and just completely overwhelmed! Anyways my soon to be husband kept telling me take a test so i finally did and it came up negative so i thought i was in the clear to go to my bachelorette party and have a great time and just unwind and that i am just stressing over this wedding to much. So that next Monday my soon to be hubby and I went to babies rus to get our 2 and a half year old diapers and as soon as i walked in the store i said" yuck it smells like nasty b.o in hear!" That night before i went tanning my soon to be hubby said pick up a test on ur way back so i did not thinking he was right. when i got home i took it and there it was a positive result! so in the end we got to annouce our good news at our wedding reception on December 31!

  • Got off birth control pills in November ~ #1 Daughter - I was 2 days late in January; took a pregnancy test at work, it was positive. Called the docs office and went in for an "official" test and I was "officially" pregnant and absolutely thrilled....couldn't wait to get home to tell the hubs - no cell phones in 1989. #2 Daughter - Had been trying for several months and had about decided to be happy with our only daughter, thought we'd try one more month. I was 1 day late, got up at 5 am to take a pregnancy test - so thrilled and excited! Ran back to the bedroom squealing, crying, ect. Very much fun telling 7 year old she was going to be a big sister. #3 Daughter - our surprise package. I was on b/c pills, not taking any antibiotics, 38 years period at the end of the b/c pill cycle. Just to be cautious, I thought I'd take a preg test before I started another month of pills. SURPRISE!!!! :D

  • With my first, I was 4 months preggo before I found out.. started gaining weight and felt like I had butterflies in my stomach.. and not the nervous kind! lol Took a test and there it was. Positive before I could wash my hands.. With the second, I was sick on and off all day for like 2 weeks and ended up taking a test..

  • First one, I was 9 weeks when I found out, my mom said, "your pregnant" I took a test and sure enough I was. This the one I am pregnant with now, we had been trying for a couple months and I took a test the day before my period was due.

  • i just knew. with my first dd i was about 3 weeks when we found out. i went to eat eggs and orange juice one morning and puked it up. went and got the test and yup i was pregnant. with my son i was maybe a month along and just kinda knew. with our second dd i was about 2 weeks along and again just knew, my body reacts very quickly to pregnancy and not in a good way. i get extremely weak and dehydrate very easily.
