... How did you just know? Was it a lcuky guess, or did you feel different inside?? smile

The first time I felt nothing (ended in MC). The second time, I felt "odd" around implantation.

Both times I got weird twingey feelings in my uterus . This was a good bit before I could've done a test.

3 mc, never knew until I mc. With DD, I can't describe it. I just said to my mum, totally randomly, 'I'm pregnant' she asked when id done the test, told her I hadn't. She went and got me a test and it was positive. She still finds it weird now that I just knew.

I couldn't drink coffee from very very early on and was drinking gallons of it before!

Had a weird dizzy spell at work for no reason. Equally though, I'm sure there have been times when I was sure I was pregnant but then got my period and forgot all about it!

Everything just smelled incredibly strong - I was walking the dog & could smell each tree separately. Couldn't have olives on the same table as me in a restaurant as the smell was overwhelming. This happened with both daughters but not my son.

I was pregnant at 18 when DH and I were first together.. Sadly I miscarried at 10 weeks, but I just knew. I missed a period but kept coming up negative on tests so just carried on with life, but I just felt different. My body felt out of sorts. It's a hard one to explain. I eventually came up positive after I missed my second period!
It's how I feel now surprisingly, after 3 weeks of cramping and spotting which never actually turned into AF, but all my tests are negative.

Had the worst hangover of my life (lasted several days).

mapmyface Mon 06-Jul-15 08:59:57

Honestly first pregnancy, hadn't a clue until I was 8 weeks when I took a test on the off chance.
2nd and third pregnancy, got out of bed and honestly felt like I'd been hit by a truck just absolutely exhausted. Both times too early to test but I just knew I was

I just knew. I had loads and loads of negative tests but I knew I felt different.

I was suddenly exhausted in a way I had never experienced before and I had a heavy dragging feeling in my abdomen. And I had a super super sensitive nose, could smell things that no one else could.

Felt 'funny' like a hangover mixed with the onset of flu, but not as bad as either.

Binary something you would like to share?

With DS2 I woke up with a nasty metallic taste in my mouth and I just knew from then.

L0gLady Mon 06-Jul-15 11:12:38

I was SO TIRED, but I also felt a weird excited buzz. Also I did have a few twinges around implantation.

I tested the day AF was due and got a v strong positive.

ha ha lights - who knows??

My boobs went up two sizes. I peed on a stick, said negative. Three days later, a positive. Nine months later, dd1.

Second time my boobs didn't let me know in advance. Traitors.

POAS binary

With both my pregnancies the first I knew about it was because I got very sore breasts. The first time I didn't know it meant I was pregnant but when I fell pregnant the second time I knew straight away because of the soreness.

mandy214 Mon 06-Jul-15 14:15:09

Same as Vashta - stood up at my desk at work (like I would a million times a day) and went so dizzy I had to sit down again. Had been trying, so nipped out and did a test in the work loo <classy>. I was only on Day 24 of my cycle but it came up as a +ve. Twins arrived a few months later grin

My urine always smells different to me.

The first one I got pregnant I thought I was getting cystitis as it smelled different when I did a wee, but had no pain and didn't come down with it. A week later I got a positive test.

All pregnancies since then (2Mc and 1ds) have also had the more animaly smelling wee from about 1 week after conception. The smell fades away later in the pregnancy.

OhGood Mon 06-Jul-15 14:16:38

I'm in the 'felt different inside' camp. Just knew. (Sorry I know that's not useful.) Only identifiable things were feeling a bit tired, and losing my sense of direction.

susiey Mon 06-Jul-15 14:18:19

I got horrible heartburn with 2, 3 and 4 - I knew then -I get it really on in pregnancy

Fourarmsv2 Mon 06-Jul-15 14:18:34

DS1 - no signs -- POAS because we were trying and I was obsessive after 9m.

DS2 - instant nausea and tiredness from conception onwards. Did a test 3 or 4 days before my period was due. It was -ve. I was sooooo shocked. The positive came up after about 15m (checked after my shower). smile

TheTravellingLemon Mon 06-Jul-15 18:15:31

With DS1 I had incredibly sore boobs and I was absolutely sure without doubt. I even looked different. Before I tested DH asked me if I was pregnant because I was glowing grin.

This time round I had no idea. I knew AF was late and only tested so I would be able to tell the GP that my periods were late. Shocked beyond words when it was positive.

TheTravellingLemon Mon 06-Jul-15 18:20:40

binary I do hope it is the result you're hoping for. There were plenty of times I thought I was, but I wasn't. It's different for everyone and for every pregnancy. The only way you'll know for sure is to test flowers
