Did you know? People say they just "knew" they were pregnant before it was confirmed.
I was charting and knew we had great timing and that I actually ovulated but I still thought that the cycle was a bust.
Nope. I figured I had just blown $2,000 on meds and procedures at the doctor's office when I could have gone on a kick ass vacation instead.
are you kidding? We TTC'd forever last time - even took 5 IUI's with injectible drugs before it worked.
I never in a million years would have thought I was pg without trying.

Definitely not. I was actually sure I was NOT pregnant. I POAS on a whim when I noticed a ridiculous amount of CM (I know, not a symptom, but different for me in the 2ww). I was absolutely floored when a faint line came up on the IC test. I was frantic running around my house trying to get myself together to go to Walgreens and buy FRERs and Digis lol!
ETA: Out of all 10 cycles, this cycle we had the worst timing of any cycle, and my spotting started at only 4 or 5dpo. (The spotting has since gone away.)
Yep, I totally knew. I took 3 tests that were negative over the course of a week before the 4th came back positive.
My skin seems to break out IMMEDIATELY once that egg is fertilized. That's how I knew. Same thing all 3 times.
NavyGMWife:No. Felt like AF was on the way. Was actually convinced she was.
I did. This was the first month EVER that DH weren't consistently using BC. I had been off the pill for a year, and we'd been using condoms. But we knew we were going to start TTC soon so I guess we just got kind of lazy about birth control... I actually was charting and I thought we were avoiding the most fertile time, but obviously not...
I think pretty much right after conception I had breast soreness and weird twinges in my abdomen. I always get sore boobs before AF but it felt different... more sore than usually. The twinges felt like cramps but they would come and go. The first few days I had those symptoms I thought AF was on its way, but after awhile when it didn't show, I had my suspicions.
I didn't test until 17 dpo but yeah, I totally knew it would be positive.
yes. with dd i was on the pill (yay statistics!) and once i started the placebo pills and didn't get AF, i knew. with this one we were charting to avoid and i'm extremely regular and a fertile myrtle. i knew, but waiting a week after AF was supposed to show before i tested.
Beccaboo0713:No. I was charting and knew we had great timing and that I actually ovulated but I still thought that the cycle was a bust.
This. I thought we were out because i didn't 'feel' anything!
I didn't know.
Took 3 years with our son, so I wasn't expecting to get pregnant very easily. I was wrong, and am so glad I was!
