1st Trimester

Did you KNOW?

Did you know?  People say they just "knew" they were pregnant before it was confirmed.

 Did you?

It's time. Adoption saving and process started in November 2012.

Re: Did you KNOW?

  • Heck no - I had no idea.  I had to rub my eyes to believe the second line was there.  We were planning to try in Oct. and anticipated fertility issues so it was a pleasant surprise!

  • No.  Felt like AF was on the way.  Was actually convinced she was.

  • With Aidan I had no clue. I told MH that we were out that cycle. With this one, yes I did. I felt the same way I did earlier on with Aidan when I was about 10dpo. I kept testing negative though until 15dpo.

  • 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.

  • No, not at all.  I wasn't even going to test but figured I would since it was Father's day.  I got my BFP at like 9 or 10 dpo though so I don't think there's much to know at that point.

    I thought it was a joke--but then I snapped back with reality and realized it's not like that is a joke pregnancy test.  I especially didn't know since DH had def. not been that active in the bedroom that month.

  • 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.

  • Nope, I knew for sure that I was getting AF. I have fertility problems and we had only tried for 4 months, so I tested as a joke. I was so happy and shocked that I didn't believe the BFP, I burst into tears too!

  • I definitly suspected.  When I tested I expected a positive.  This is mainly due to the fact that I had a major indigestion attack about 2 nights before I should have gotten my period.  I have never had indigestion like that which is what made me suspect. 
  • No. I thought AF was coming for sure.

  • Strangely, I think I did know. A couple days after I found out we had good timing I was super turned on by DH thinking that we had made a baby together.

  • 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.)

    Our sweet girl is 3!

  • Kind of, but it was impossible to unravel those feelings from the hope that we were pregnant and the pessimism that it couldn't be. Actually, about a week before my BFP, I was trying out hypnosis and at one point deep into it, the counselor told me to envision myself in the place she had been describing, and the image I saw was myself very pregnant. I just couldn't envision myself any other way. It definitely could have been just wishful thinking, but it was a really beautiful thing to see that day.

  • 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.

  • Nope! I swore I was out this month after a big temp drop. I had no idea at all with DS either and didn't actually find out until I was about 6 weeks along.

  • No, I did not know.  I had been so disappointed for so many cycles in the past, with phantom symptoms in almost every one, so I didn't want to get my hopes up again.  Especially when it was the last medicated cycle before we were going to go on a medication break.  I was getting ready to try not to cry again when the faint 2nd line started to come out.  Thank God!
  • I didn't "know", but a co-worker did.  She said I was pregnant within a week of when I probably ovulated.  I waited until day 24 of my cycle and got a clear as day line.  She always "knows" when someone is pregnant. 
  • I knew with my first pregnancy.  This time, I was shocked to see the line appear.

  • I actually did! I always thought I'd be one of those women who didn't know until a good ways in, so I got iPeriod on my iphone and went to town tracking. The hubby and I took a "if it happens, it happens" approach to it and avoided what iPeriod said were my "fertile" days. Well, I spotted about a week before my period and thought maybe it was coming early. A few days later I told myself I was silly because not only had I not gotten my period but I was extremely regular for 4 months beforehand. Then, 3 days before my period I had light fluttery cramps and I waited for my normal "spotting" to begin. The next day I texted my sister and bestfriend to tell them that I was certain I was pregnant. The light fluttery cramps had continued and I'd never felt them before! My cramps were always hard and terrible. I test the next day (Father's Day) late at night and BFP!

  • My rational mind said no way because my period had been jacked up the month before.  I did comment to DH the day before I tested "I'm either sick or pregnant."  I didn't actually think I was pregnant though.
  • I knew when I was three days late and puked each morning.
  • 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.

    Sixth Anniversary

    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!


  • not this time.  with my DS i did, but maybe i just didn't give myself enough time with this one.  i wanted to test before my DH left the country and i got a BFP, but very early.  it's been a few days and now i'm feeling very exhausted and HUNGRY!
