How did you know you were pregnant?

Posted by   + Show Post

Even before the missed period, was there anything that  tipped you off? Bloating, sore stomach, anything else? I'm going nuts here...

Quoting Eve-marie:


Oh Lord. I'm anemic (sickle cell) and have a prolapsed heart valve. I nearly lost my twins at 28 weeks and had to go in the hospital and be on oxygen. They were born 35 weeks and I had oxygen again. My fingers are still crossed...

Quoting Mbpeaceful12:

 Well, the first time, my husband who was then my boyfriend had to tell me. I was twenty-one and the vomiting I thought was due to a hell of a stomach bug (we were eating tons of junk food from places with scores of "C" in the windows). Ten years later, I knew because I am diabetic and my blood sugar glucose was out of control; no matter how much walking I did, watched what I ate, and so forth, my blood sugar kept climbing( I had to get on insulin and my second daughter came out healthy at 7.5 pounds and now, a preschooler, she is trying to read what I am typing right now). So the morale of my second experience is if you have a medical or chronic condition, pregnancy usually makes it worst.



I did not mean add more stress to your life with my reply. Yet honestly, pregnancy can worsen health conditions. On the flip side, if you do believe in prayer, going to your specialist, and following the advice to the t, your chances of having a healthy baby are greater.  Despite your situation and the twins' early birth, I am glad to read that the three of you are still here!  All babies are blessings, but you have had double blessings with twins!How are the three of you holding up? What are they?

morning sickness was the tip off. I kept throwing up and my instinct told the dr I am pregnant  so he did a test and sure enough I was 8 weeks along.
