Were you ever convinced...

Were you ever certain you were pregnant and then not been?


Convinced you weren't when you were? Love hearing people's stories.

Too early for me to test but over a week away from my period and very sore, stiff feeling boobs. Only other time I've felt this is when I was last pregnant!

I'm 35 weeks pregnant. When I took my test it was the only time I've ever taken a pregnancy test and not been convinced it would be positive. I was so shocked when it was I started hyperventilating (no exaggeration!). I should've known really considering the awful cramps I'd had for a week and no AF grin but I put it all down to stress making me late.

I didn't think i was this time, i was using opks and tracking temp, got a positive opk but never got a confirmed ovulation on fertility friend. One day at work i felt sick all day and in the evening i got the same food aversion i got with DD. I tested to rule it out! 26 weeks now!

Thanks for sharing your stories ladies, it's so funny and lovely how things turn out sometimes!

I wonder what's going on with me. I've convinced myself I am but on the other hand I could be going crazy and it could be a phantom pregnancy!

Try a Superdrug Early test. I got a faint positive after eight days first thing in the morning.

The first pregnancy I had I was a bit of a novice when it came to when to test so tried a couple of days after I was due on, it was negative so thought nothing of it. A week later, no period, but I thought it was just because I had recently come off the pill. I went to the docs, she felt my tummy and gave me a funny look and told me to take a test again. I did and it was a genuine shock when it was positive! Sadly that pregnancy did not last and the next two I could pinpoint exactly what had happened - usually starts with the sensitive sense of smell and food tasting off.

Good luck - I do think it is a lot easier to tell second time around :-)

It took me around 18 months to get pregnant both times. Both times I thought I was pg most months.

Both times we had taken a break from ttc, when I fell pregnant.

So both times I had no idea until I realised I was late and did a test.

Nice surprises though grin

Nope. With all mine I knew before I did the test. With my daughter I knew and I must have been literally days pregnant (and I was a teenager and wasn't actively tryingf so it wasn't wishful thinking). With both boys though I was convinced that they were going to be girls despite seeing what the sonographer refered to as 'a very definite pair of testicles' and my first question when I came round from ga with my first csection was 'is it still a boy?'

Thanks everyone! I guess sometimes you can tell sometimes you can't....I'm sure there are a lot of mumsnet'ers out there who want me to POAS.

I've been feeling abit gutted today cos I've done a full circle and now convinced myself I'm not pregnant X

First pregnancy I didn't realise until I did a test to discount it at 8ish wks pregnant. The sickness, exhaustion, boob soreness and constant trips to the loo in the night hadn't alerted me. I thought I had some sort of nasty bug. (We weren't TTC obviously)
This time I tested before my missed period. I didn't think it'd be positive as we had only been trying for 6 wks, but our cat was telling us otherwise. She's only ever been a lap cat during pregnancy and had gone back to refusing to leave me alone. Clever furball knew from about 7dpo... I tested at 10dpo and got a very faint positive.
