TTC - Trying to Conceive TTC - Trying to Conceive

So my mom and I were watching a show last night called '24' not even sure what its about but it was a marathon and after 5 or 6 back to back shows we got hooked lol

So in one episode a woman takes a PT and it comes up +. At that moment my mom says "You are too" looking at me! lol I can't seem to get her to understand how ovulation and pregnancy work for some reason. I know I am most definitely am not. Last time I DTD was on the 23rd, AF is due next week. Plus the fact that I was no where close to O. I have 33 day cycles and I am due for AF on the 4th or 5th so there is no way. She says I am, I say I'm not but we'll see next week. I have all the symptoms of PMS: Bloating (yesterday was bad), fatigue, headache and backache. IF I am I would be extremely suprised, then again she was the one who told me I was pregnant with my DS.....

My question is: Do you have a hard time explaining the process of pregnancy to some people or do they just "get" it?

 lol I guess mom's have that intuition huh? She told me a week before I found out with my son. I found out at the doctor's office the next week that I was 5 weeks pregnant

 Yea I know but seeing as that I PCOS its highly unlikely that I'm pregnant plus its only been a week so this is most likely PMS symptoms then preggo symptoms

My mom knew I was...
I was talking to her on the phone (I was like 8wks) and we weren't even talking about pregnancy or anything (she didn't know we were trying) and suddenly she just blurts out "are you pregnant?"

I was like WTF? How did you know??
