I have the same feeling that I did when I first found out I was PG with my daughter, kind of an underlying nausea and dizzynes, as well as slightly sore nipples when she nurses. Plese tell me I am not insane and that there are other moms that "just knew" they were pregnant way before a test could even tell.
oh, and though i had symptoms pretty much immediately after o, i have to say it wasn't the early symptoms that convinced me -- it was more that i just "knew." because i had been using fam to avoid pregnancy for over a year, i knew full well that a lot of early pregnancy symptoms are the same as progesterone symptoms, so i didn't take a lot of stock in them. it wasn't until 8 or so dpo where those made me suspicious, because i knew that for me the progesterone symptoms usually started to slow down, and mine picked up, plus i had some new ones (like i explained above).
after seven full weeks of intense morning sickness and food aversions, i miss those early days of cravings.

The second time, I had recently had a stomach bug so I wasn't aware of the usual bloated, yucky feeling being anything out of the ordinary. I went to the health clinic to be put on the Depo shot and tested positive on the pregnancy test they make everyone take. Talk about a shocker! :
This time, I had no clue until my period was a week late. I took a test thinking naaah, couldn't be...but I was!
Turns out, based off my chart I conceived about two days after we dtd.
There is no such thing as bad weather. Only bad clothing.
The first two times I knew but doubted myself because I didn't want to dare to hope that I was pregnant when it was only the first month of ttc and also with my second pregnancy which resulted in DS I was desperately wanting to be pregnant but at the same time fearful because I had miscarried before.
This time around I knew I was pregnant about 7 dpo again and did not doubt it.
DH knew as well because of the sudden anger flashes. He didn't retaliate too much because he knew it was hormones
with DS I was surprised to find out I was pregnant. With DD we were trying. I knew within hours of conceiving - I felt a wave of nausia hit me in the middle of the night (I had taken the OPK test and knew that it was the right night to try) and knew I was pregnant. I tested positive 6 days before missed period.
and yeah, intuition 1, intellect 0
I'd also had that same twinge/feeling several months before when I'm pretty sure I had a chemical pregnancy/very early miscarriage
Since it was my first pregnancy and also I didn't expect to conceive so soon (we were only trying for days) I let my intellect override my intuition for a little while, and considered that it was possible but unlikely. Since I always had long cycles, I waited to test until more than 2 weeks after I expected AF. I was pretty certain by that time, and so was DH, but I figured I shouldn't tell anyone else until I had some more serious confirmation, like a test.
cuz I came here to post this EXACT thread....
I have "known" since two days after we dtd.
I got a migraine, then was nauseous all day the next day. Now Im swollen, peeing all day, can barely stay awake all day or asleep all night, sweating constantly and having horrible mood swings.
My dh swears I am and all my friends swear I am crazy!!!
so... are you?
I've tried 3 HPTs and they were all BFNs. I've been told I should retest in a few days (the egg just implanted), but it is driving me nuts not having a definite answer.
All I know is I really want to get some new bras.
With my first 6 pregnancies I was sure/mostly sure for all.
I have hg and from the first twinge of pg I am queasy for about 3 days and then it holds off until 7 weeks and stays until at least 5 months. I usually have to pee all of the time for two or three weeks and then after the hg begins I am a bit dehydrated and I can barely sit upright, I crawl around and hope that the kids keep on doing what they're supposed to and that noone gets seriously injured.
Although my first I was thinking that I was about 5 days after we dtd and then I ended up convincing myself that I was crazy until I had my wisdom teeth out ( all four) and I was really nauseous and has to pee that night, I had dh (who was df then) and they said that was not a normal reaction to the surgery, could I be preg and I said oh, yeah. Since then I have trusted myself and we have known before the test every time... even though most people I know think that I am crazy.
