  • When my hubby thought he would be nice and surprise me by bringing home some Reese Cups (my favorite candy). I opened the package and immediately thought I was going to vomit. I knew right then I needed to take a test.

  • When i saw the second line.

    First i blamed it one all the regular pop that i drank that night because i usually drink diet. 5 years later, sometimes i wish regular pop caused false positives :)

  • With my son, I think I was sort of in denial for a bit... I wasn't getting my period (obviously) but it had never been regular so that didn't give it away... I gained weight before I got pregnant (I was 18) so that wasn't a sure sign either. Even when I started puking I wasn't sure. After a few days of that, though, I finally gave in and took a test.

    With my second pregnancy, I had a hunch - my period was late, but again, it wasn't always regular. I sort of just.. knew the second time around. I knew my body and knew something was different. I threw up one day and decided I was going to get a test.

  • 1st baby, I was in denial. My period was very late & I kept trying to say it was stress, but my DH (boyfriend at the time) made me take a test and that's how I found out. 2nd baby, we were trying for a baby & had only been trying for 2 weeks & I wanted to wait awhile to take a test (to see if I had a missed period), b/c I didn't want to take one & be disappointed, but again, DH had this gut feeling that I was pregnant, so he went and bought some tests & made me take one again, & yup I was pregnant.

  • Both times I felt like I suddenly came down with the flu in one step! Couldn't keep anything down and everything I liked became unbearable. Almost Like my whole body flipped what it liked. Dh somehow knows and says "youre pregnant" when I simply say "I'm not feeling well. He buys me a test and voila!!! Just found out I'm prego with number two!
