When did you 'know' you were pregnant?

When the test said "Positive"?

When conception took place?

Few days before period was due?

With Dd & Ds I don't remember, I think when the test said positive, and MS commenced almost instantly from there!

holding the stick in my hands both times - was convinced it would be -ve, especially the second time
First time I had a pain in my coccyx (aka bum ache) from a few days before my period was due - looking back I can see this was a symptom but didn't realise at the time. The second time I didn't get bum ache until a few weeks in

With ds, when I got a +ve test. My body is very good at pretending to be pregnant.

I was definitely pregnant this month...until I got the -ve result and my period started (5 days late, the wee bugger!)

when I got the line on the test stick three days after my period was due.

With DS I felt that I was pregnant as soon as I conceived but this time round only when I did the test.

First time round I fell pregnant first month and just felt lucky but second time it took us a year and after loads of "definitely am pregnant" feelings like the first time I knew better for the second round.

Thanks grin

I think really I knew pretty soon after conception, but we've had so many months where I've hoped and been dissapointed that I didn't believe it until I was a week late and had two positive tests in my hand!

ds1 - after the 2nd test! lol

ds2 - 3 days before my period was due, I had been on a course and was quite late to pick ds1 up from my parents. I got a McD and had "that metalic taste" in my mouth, knew then. Didn't do a test for another 5 days, but already knew.

1st baby - had suspicions when I couldn't face my evening G&T and ciggie grin

2nd pregnancy (miscarried in the end) - tested when my period was a day or so late. Thought it was pretty unlikely, so was quite surprised when got a BFP.

2nd baby - had suspicions when I started throwing up a couple of days before period was due.

ThePhantomPlopper Thu 02-Jul-09 21:25:06

1st baby - Forgot we were TTC, when I finally remembered I was 3 days late.

2nd baby - 4 days before period was due, woke up 2 mornings in a row at 5am with mild nausea and couldn't get back to sleep so decided to test, was very faint though.

Every time I've been pregnant (3 times) - I've just known even before my period was late. I'm not generally a particularly 'in tune' person where my body's concerned - I've never been one of those people who can say that X gives them wind or whatever. It's really odd and I am not able to explain it at all.

Tillyscoutsmum Thu 02-Jul-09 21:38:39

First 3 pregnancies - when tested (2 mc's)

4th pg (2nd dc) about 6 days before period was due - coccyx pain, funny taste in mouth (not metallic, more like washing up liquid) and insomnia.

alicecrail Thu 02-Jul-09 21:39:08

I didn't have a clue with DD - was a very big shock.

However, this month i was convinced i was pg, i mean absolutely 100% sure and the shock was when i found out i wasn't sad So what do i know hmm

Tigresswoods Fri 03-Jul-09 07:41:12

I was a day late and I just thought I probably was. I have been on the Clomid so knew when I should come on. Waited an extra day and all business-like took the test and went, "Oh look, positive, that's that then" and carried on with my day even though have been trying for 18 months and had lots of tears.

It was like a great calmness and I did just know.

I don't "feel" preggers at all, am now 5-6 weeks.

pippa251 Fri 03-Jul-09 07:57:22

12 week scan- me and my boyf just looked at each other and we KNEW- We are having a baby!

Until then I had morning sickness etc but I never propery believed- I have known loads of people who have had devestating news at their 12 week scan so I just tried to put it out of my mind until then.

I am due in 9 days and part of me still can't imageon there's a real little person in there

MildredRoper Fri 03-Jul-09 07:57:23

With dd, I felt something happen about 10 days before my period, so I suppose it might have been the implantation?

It was just like mega pms and much earlier than I was used to having it.

But then I was convinced I was pregnant again a couple of months ago and I wasn't!

Antdamm Fri 03-Jul-09 08:48:27

I was speaking to my friend on msn, arranging dates for her coming to visit. Discovered I was 2 days late, and just knew.

Waited a week to test as was sure I was mental grin

sweetkitty Fri 03-Jul-09 08:54:05

With all four pregnancie sI knew about a week after ov, cannot say why or how but just knew

Dalrymps Fri 03-Jul-09 09:11:57

1st time I knew when I got the BFP but I strongly suspected I was due to very sore breasts and being 5 days late...

This time, suspected I was when dh commented my breasts looked a bit bigger than normal. Tested about 4 days before AF due and got a faint positive. Lots more tests every other day but truly acceoted it when got a strong bfp 2 days late.

5 weeks pregnant now, still don't physically 'feel' pg at all!

I done my test because my friend was worried about hers coming up positive, so we both done one to see the results, as we waited 3 mins she was hanging on to the edge of the seat while i was really calm, next thing i know mines sayed positive and hers was negative! shockshock

I burst into tears....
2weeks later when I went for my scan I was 12weeks pregnant! I burst out crying when i seen my son, it was all so true !

I only done it as a nice person, to help my friend do hers.... And it turned out I was the one pregnant,

Now im 37weeks gone and i can't wait to meet my boy, i look back and laugh all the time, its just weird how things turn out !

When I got hot flushes, a day or so before my period was due. Never got hot flushes except when pregnant.

Firsttimer7259 Fri 10-Jul-09 10:53:50

I thought I was pregnant on day 19 of my cycle. I wasnt temping properly but guessed that we had timed the BD just right. But mainly I was incredibly thirsty. Just couldnt drink enough and felt really strange and kept thinking Im pregnant
Anyway extreme thirst isnt one of your usual signs of pregnancy so I tested on Day 22 with one of those early response tests, it came back negative. Disappointed over the long weekend.
Tested again on day 25 and got a BFP. Apart from thinking how stinky everything was I had no other symptoms.

readyfornumber2and3 Fri 10-Jul-09 12:55:28

1st time- when I got the + result, I was 2 days late and taking the test to "rule it out" lol

this time- 3 days before af was due I woke up in the early hours with sore nipples, thought to myself "im pregnant" and went back to sleep lol. Got a faint positive in the morning. (I am having twins so might explain the early symptoms)

TwentiethCenturyHeffa Fri 10-Jul-09 13:01:44

I felt really really sick about a week before my period was due and I knew then. I couldn't bring myself to believe it until we had the positive test because I didn't want to be disappointed.
