1st Trimester

Did you know you were pregnant before a test was positive?

DH and I are trying. This is our first month. I was wondering what kind of signs or symptoms everyone had before they got a positive pregnancy test.

I think I just ovulated a few day ago so I know it's a bit early.

Hope everyone is having a great day, and congrats to all you mommas!

Re: Did you know you were pregnant before a test was positive?

  • Absolutely not. Either time.

    It was the first time with DS that I didn't even suspect a pregnancy. And then again, for the first time since DS, it was the first time I didn't even suspect a pregnancy.

  • DH joked about it because of my craving for shrimp.  Other than that and super sore boobs, I just figured AF was on her way.  I had a few other cravings that reminded me of my last pregnancy, in hind sight, I guess I could have taken those as signs.

  • Nope.  I had no idea and was actually pretty shocked.  I still don't really feel pregnant, but I'm only 5 weeks.

  • All I really had was exhaustion, some wicked cramps, and a hunch. I took a hpt the day before AF was due, and it was positive! I'm 6 weeks now, and I've added nauseau to the mix. Good luck to you!

  • I did because I started having all day nausea and sore boobs 9 DPO but tested negative every day until 12 DPO.  Now the nausea has subsided but the other symptoms are picking up steam.

  • Nope.  Both times I got pregnant, I had cramps like usual and didn't test until after AF was expected to arrive.  I was convinced I was pregnant during other cycles while TTC.

  • I did.  We 'really made it count' when I ovulated and 2 days later I had implantation cramps . . . a full 2 weeks before AF.  So I knew what was happening.  Then I started to feel bloated and sore boobs right around when AF would be happening.

  • With LO I tested too early cuz i thought i might have been (no real symptoms other than missed period at that point) and got a negative result. A few weeks later AF still hadn't shown up (wasn't abnormal for me)... I had weird symptoms (itching and weird dreams) so I figured "eh, I have an extra test upstairs why not POAS". My dog was sitting at my feet while I was peeing, and I almost didn't even wait for the results. I figured it was stupid for me to test so as I was getting ready to place it in the trash can I looked at the results and WHAM- POSITIVE. I felt bad cuz I kicked my dog out of surprise!

  • I did with both. Sore boobs was the biggest clue (which I never got with AF) There were a few other things.... (Pregnancy Brain and I can't remember them now)

  • I did with both, mainly on a hunch and a late period (which isn't abnormal for me). I had no other symptoms.

    Not to burst your bubble, but implantation occurs 7-10 days after ovulation.  Is it possible you ovulated two days late and were feeling ovulation pain?  I always know when I'm ovulating because I get twinges of pain on one side or the other.  This time we had sex on what was supposed to be two days before I ovulated, I got twinges on my right side two days later (exactly when I expected them), and ended up with a BFP at 12 DPO.

  • Nope  - no idea.  In fact I was convinced the cramps were a sure sign my period was coming.  Had really bad cramps 2 days before my period was due 
  • Nope but this was our first month trying so I was taking tests daily after 7 DPO.  I actually got the faint positive at the end of day 8. 

     

  • With DD: For the first time ever, I got cramping at 7dpo instead of only CDs1-3 (and I had a 16 day LP, so the cramps were over a week early), so I was really hoping, but didn't know for sure.

    With my m/c: Again, I got cramping at 7dpo, so I suspected, and at 11dpo got a BFP.

    With this pregnancy: Once again, cramping at 7dpo, so I suspected again (but thought it also might be phantom symptoms brought on by wishful thinking) and got a BFP at 9dpo.

    So I never just had a magical feeling that I was pregnant. For me, each time it was presumably implantation cramping at a time in my cycle when I otherwise have never cramped.

    TMI WARNING!!

    Oh I know, I'm just saying according to my charting, my discharge, etc I was ovulating on 6/14.  On 6/16 I was having pretty good cramping.  AF started 6/2 and lasts 6 days, so I couldn't have ovulated on 6/7.  We didn't have sex again for another week (hubby was traveling).  Just saying how my body reacted was out of the norm.

  • No symptoms. My period not coming was the only clue.

  • I knew the day after I ovulated that I was pregnant. My breasts were already tender and I was so exhausted for no clear reason. I started testing 7 days past ovulation but didn't get a positive until 9 days after, and even then it was very faint. By 11 days after the line was dark and a digital confirmed! Check out www.twoweekwait.com. This site got me through until my positive.
  • I was telling myself that I wasn't, but I felt different. Much different from PMS.

  • I had weird cramping at 7 dpo (even with AF I rarely get cramps) so I knew something was up.  I waited until AF was a day late and tested, sure enough I got a BFP!

    K first, your baby is ansanely cute, and secondly I totally knew on a hunch as well. Something was just different. Hard to describe. Although sore boobs came pretty early on before my bfp.

  • I didnt have a clue. I didn't really have any symptoms to speak of. 
  • Nope.  I actually thought I was getting my period that night....cramps and spotting and all.  Boy was I shocked when I POAS the next morning to find a strong line!

  • I totally did. I got my usual back pain and headaches like I do before my period, and some heaviness to my breasts, but the breast soreness was the kicker for me. But I knew a week before I POAS. I even told my husband. "I'm 90% sure I'm pregnant." then the following day "I'm 93% sure" and he was just like, "don't be disappointed when you're not." and then I was! And then I got to rub it in his face. lol

  • Had a hunch with both. Weird dull cramping and then boobs/nipples started getting sensitive. I never had any implantation bleeding with either pregnancy.

  • I honestly had no idea all 3 times. 

    With DS, I got pregnant on the NuvaRing. AF didn't show up when she was supposed to, so I POAS to make sure. Total surprise BFP.

    With my M/C, we took a little break. I was charting, but we weren't trying like we had been the 5 cycles before that. AF didn't show up on 13dpo like normal so I tested. BFN. She still didn't show up for another week and I thought for sure I got my O date wrong or something, which was why I was having this extremely long LP. I kept testing and I didn't get a BFP until 20dpo, which is still weird to me.

    This time, I never got AF post-miscarriage. My OB said it could take up to 2 months after, so I just randomly tested after about 5 weeks....and there it was...BFP! We weren't even thinking about trying again for a couple more cycles.

     Apparently I can only get pregnant when I have no idea what's going on with my body. While we TTC #2, there were definitely cycles where I was convinced I was KU and obviously wasn't...so you never know. Unfortunately, you just have to wait and see.

  • My boobs started to be sore almost immediately after O.... I wasn't too surprised because they always get sore before AF.  What tipped me off was the fact that I was so exhausted,  I was taking naps every day and I NEVER take naps.  That and my sense of smell.  I could smell EVERYTHING so strongly.  So I wasn't surprised when I had my BFP

  • I had sore boons and had to get up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night. Neither one of those were normal for me.

  • I did have a few symptoms, like nausea, feeling really thirsty, and occasional light-headedness. But I chose to ignore these as I was convinced I won't get pregnant that easily (I was diagnosed with PCOS). It was only when I was 3 weeks overdue that I decided to test, and getting a BFP was quite a surprise.
  • I had no idea either time. This time around, I didn't think I was b/c i had tested 3 days already and was very negative. But I had one digi left which I was saving and just decided, why not? I was shocked.

    Looking back, I had some cramps and one afternoon where I was tired, but I thought it was AF.
