When did you start to feel pregnant?

Just wondering when you started to feel like you were actually having a baby??
I am 8 weeks pregnant and have known for 5 weeks but it just doesn't seem real. I mean I know I'm pregnant and I have the nausea, sickness and sore boobs to tell me that its true but I still don't feel like I'm having a baby.
I thought seeing the baby would make it real but after having a scan and seeing the heartbeat it still doesn't feel any different.
Well just wanted to know if it was just me or if anyone else felt / feels like this?? X

Not until I felt it kicking I think. The 12 week scan helped too though! I still forget I'm pregnant half the time at 27 weeks! grin

Yeah, both my first pregnancy this one it hasn't felt real until I've felt definite movement (not just butterflies but full on movement) and that was about 24/25 weeks. Finding out the sex helped a bit as well smile

I'm 12 weeks and still don't really feel pregnant, even though I'm soooooo tired and cry at every little thing!
I had a scan at 10 weeks and that made it a little more real for a couple f days but now that real feelings gone again, I have another scan on weds though so maybe it will finally make it real for me!

I felt like that after mine LJ but then a couple of days later it didn't feel real again!!
Maybe once I start to feel movements it will feel real then.
I also think finding out the sex will help as I don't want to start buying things until then so thinking once I know and can start buying bits and properly preparing then it will feel real x

I'm 24 weeks and don't feel pg- I feel tired, moody, emotional and occasionally in pain though (pgp). I feel baby kick and I'm definitely getting bigger but there's no specific "feeling pg" for me.

I've have 5dc & i know it sounds daft but with each pregnancy, i struggled to believe there was going to be a real 'proper' baby at the end of it!

Like someone said, scans helped but only for a few days.

I'm nearly 11 weeks and have had 2 scans already and ms/nausea/tiredness however, I still don't feel pregnant. This is my third baby so I should be used to it by now, but I don't feel it yet. I think for me, it's not until I start feeling kicks and my stomach begins poking out that I truly believe I'm pregnant.

not yet at 30 weeks grin
Didn't have nausea/tiredness etc either, so if not for a massive belly, I would have a hard time believing there's something different.

I'm 25 weeks and still don't feel pregnant at times, apart from when he moves then i'm like 'awe, i'm pregnant'
