Did anyone just 'Know' they were pregnant?

I have heard people say that they just knew they were pregnant long before the positive pregnancy test.

Has anyone ever felt like this and if so how soon?

Yes, every time I've been pregnant. It's nothing to do with norks or any other physical sign. I just knew. I can't explain it.

lulumama Mon 13-Oct-08 21:14:03

ladytophamhatt Mon 13-Oct-08 21:14:30

i knew about a week before my period was due. i had the norks thing - i remember saying to my dh, don't touch them they feel really weird for some reason and as the sentence came out of my mouth, i realised why. i started vomiting later that week. i never did a pg test. i just waited for the bump to appear....

yes with all 4 pregnancies knew the tests would be positive before I did them. First two had a feeling that night that, next two a few days after. Cannot explain it it's just a feeling.

Yes - felt dizzy and was really clumsy - also turned into a banshee one night blush

Yes, I knew the day after I conceived each time.

yes -sense of smell became very acute and remember sitting in room with (very clean) work colleague that I could smell across the desk ... went for acupuncture and my lovely acupuncture lady sensed I was too

The second time, yes - first pregnancy test was negative but I still thought I was, and when I went for the first scan later I must only have been 3 weeks pg when I did the first test (though it was 5 weeks LMP)

Dropdeadfred Mon 13-Oct-08 21:27:14

like this month grin

No I was really surprised though looking for signs.

turquoise Mon 13-Oct-08 21:32:24

With ds, knew within 10 days.

With dd, knew the day after conception.

AbstractMouse Mon 13-Oct-08 21:33:42

Yes with Dd I felt odd from the off kind of spacey, didn't consciously feel pregnant (although radioactive norks might have given it away if I had mn). But kept having odd daydreams of telling Dp I was pg. Didn't even know how long my cycles were, I only did a test because my boobs were killing me.

It was a reassurance test (that I was not pg) tbh as I had no idea how late I was.

I got home, did the test which came up + within seconds and then cried for about 2 hours lol.
It was a nah I'm not pg test rather than a Yes you are fecking pg test get over it lol.

IAteDavinaForDinner Mon 13-Oct-08 21:34:56

Yep. I remember running up the stairs and my boobs really hurt. Tried to dismiss it but tested as soon as the eBay strips arrived and sure enough, preggers. Wasn't trying so was very shock. I did 12 tests of 2 different brands blush

memoo Mon 13-Oct-08 22:17:24

DP and I are ttc, we had a very nice day on Saturday iyswim, today i really feel like i am, my body feels differentm my stomach feels heavy, and my boobs are sore like they get when i'm on my period.

I really feel as though i am pregnant but don't know if its all in my mind!?

hotpotmama Mon 13-Oct-08 22:19:35

Yes with dS3 got heartburn for just one night and knew I had to do a test and I was!

I did each time. With DC1 I tested and it was negative. Didn't know that the tests did not work until period was due blush so went out and had a few drinks that weekend (thinking that I wasn't pg obviously, I just believed the test) and then found out the next week that I was. 2nd and 3rd time I kept doing tests - again was testing too early, but felt I was pg and spent a bloody fortune doing a test every couple of days until I had a positive!

LittlePushka Mon 13-Oct-08 22:52:57

Yes, both times within a week of the deed my nails had grown (they never grow) and I had greasy skin on my forehead (never had greasy skin in my life!),

Second time I knew within days!

So grin for you Droppy!
