  • i was about 6wks..didn't miss my period. i mean, i wasn't looking for it; i'm not one who's ever kept track of the days, KWIM?
    i was chatting online with an ex and we were talking about our individual futures..would we ever find 'the one'? will we find him/her before we're too old to have kids? did we wants kids?..that kind of thing.
    it made me think, ''hmm..when was my period?''..oh snap! so i put out my cigarette, swallowed the rest of my third beer..yup..and went to Walgreen's.
    that's my story. HAHA!

  • oh, i might add..i'd just broken up with my then-bf a week prior. so, upon finding out i was pregnant, i talked to the ex again. he said, ''if it were me, whether you want him back or not, i would want to know if i fathered a child.'' so, i called my 'donor', and told him. we sort of spent the next couple months in a daze, figuring out if we wanted to be a family, or just parents of a child.
    we've been married 6yrs this July. i guess we decided to be a family, after all. :))

  • With my first I was almost three months along. I actually went to the doctor to see why I wasn't getting pregnant(tried for a year). While checking me she asked if I missed my period, I told her know. I had to take a pregnancy test it came up negative. Did an ultrasound(thought I had a cyst or something) negative. We scheduled another ultrasound for a couple weeks later. Before my ultrasound I was getting some bad cramping and had to go to the ER. The did blood work and I found out was 3months preggers. My second one I knew before I missed my period. Went to the doctor asked for a blood test, they thought I was crazy. The next day I get a call saying I was pregnant and I wasn't quite a week yet. Now I got this same feeling again...... Only thing is I got my tubes tied 6months ago. But I got this strong feeling........

  • With this current pregnancy it was a TOTAL surprise. I was feeling like I was really getting sick, everything smelled bad to me and I was Soooo tired. I thought I was getting the flu. One morning I woke up so dizzy that I was actually scared. That day, I had to take a nap while my toddler was napping. All of a sudden I woke up from a deep sleep & said to myself "OMG! I haven't gotten my period" & I was almost 2 weeks late! I ran & took a really old pregnancy test that I had from years ago & BAM! Two bright pink lines! I almost had a heart attack! I am 43 & have been married for 18 years! I called my DH & he was speechless & said he would pick up another test on the way home. It was positive too! LOL! Well we are VERY Happy with this surprise & we have a baby girl coming in a few weeks! :) Best wishes to you!

  • About 8 months into TTC #1, I found out that I had endometriomas on both ovaries. After taking medication (a pill that was injected under the skin of my abdomen every month) that put me into menopause for 6 months and having surgery, we were back to TTC #1. About 3 months and two ovulation predictor kits later, my period was late. I waited until it was 3 days late and tested. It was +.

    Eight years, 4 miscarriages and 11 infertility cycles later, I got a call from the clinic.  The dFET cycle had worked!  My hormone level was so high, I was definitely pregnant with multiples.  At age 45, I gave birth to our twin sons.

  • I was a week or so late, bought an E.P.T. and got a positive. That was my son.

    I was a week or two away from my cycle and my hubby knew I was preggo. After my cycle was due and didn't come I took another E.P.T. and got a positive. EVERYONE said I glowed while pregnant with my daughter.

  • With my first, I wanna say I was 9 or 10 weeks. I don't remember. With my second, I found out at 6 weeks. Yes, I missed my period with both.

  • I just knew. I hadnt even skipped a peeiod before telling my SO that I was pretty sure I was pregnant. He was in denial, and thought I was just being silly. We waited a week, took a test, and it was positive. She wasnt planned, but she was very wanted. We had a names picked out for our future kids already, she just came earlier than expected. She is now the joy of our lives :)
