....that we already know we're pregnant?

I knew, for pretty sure, by 10 dpo. (I was temping and had a constant rise, plus I usually get my period by 10 dpo.)

I just feel like it's crazy to know that quickly--and to be sure and confirmed by a test before your cycle even hits 28 days! Last time, I was not trying to get pregnant--I was on birth control--and I still knew before 5 weeks.

Who are these women who don't realize they're pregnant until they're 6 months along? Must be they don't get sick.

And don't chart, probably don't pay any attention to their cycles, or maybe have very irregular cycles. I tested 11 DPO, but I already suspected I wa pregnant, because I did not have the usual signs that my period was on its way, and my temperatures had not really dropped. I often wonder why more women don't take the time to learn more about their cycles and bodies.

I knew this would be my cycle. this was the most straightforward chart I had had, everything came together, we timed things well, I just knew. I knew that early with my DS. But I always say my DD snuck up on me. I'm ashamed it took me to 5.5 weeks to figure it out with her.

So funny cause I was thinking the same thing too. Like I am glad that I know but I almost wish I didn't just cause it makes that second trimester so much farther away. The safe zone. I got a faint positive 11DPO, then two more faint ones after that. I mean, even now I'm not due for AF till tomorrow at the earliest. It is weird.
But I just knew. I knew it. I just got the confirmation is how I look at it.

I knew too. I got a couple of negative tests at 10 and 11dpo and then on 12 dpo, when I got my positive, it didn't turn positive within a minute and I thought this is total crap and got another test which was a different brand and used that and then the next minute both of them were positive!
It really did my head in because I was 'sure', but then I doubted myself and wondered if my symptoms were somehow pyschosemadic. But I'm pretty sure I felt the moment I conceived, I just all this static electricity occuring in my uterus in was really strange.

I got my first (light) positive Saturday afternoon. I have taken a different brand last night, again a light positive. Today I took another (I wasn't planning more and I am in shock so I seem to have this incessant need to waste money on tests) and it was the digital and it said "not pregnant" so I am confused and upset. This isn't planned, but now I want this baby...

It is a little weird knowing so early in the pregnancy. I also got my BFP on cycle day 10.

Honestly, I think it is harder knowing so early. I have had 3 losses: first pg ended at 11 wks, second one at 5 wks, then I had 2 boys, then lost the last one at 8 wks. With my second pg, I got a BFP in the morning and had a m/c that evening, I was an emotional wreck! If I had waited just one more day, I wouldn't of known I was pg, just would of thought I had a long cycle. With my last pg, I got a BFP at 10 dpo, but had a long cycle so my OB wanted my to get a sono to date the pg. The sono kept showing that the pg wasn't as far along as she thought it should be, so I kept getting my HcG levels checked every other day and repeat sonos until finally at 8 wks she determined that it was a blighted ovum (stopped growing at 5 wks.) It was an emotional rollercoaster to go thru all that testing and uncertainty.

The easiest pg I had was with my second son. I had just gotten my pp cycle back, when DS 1 was 9 months old, and was still exclusively bfing. I had 3 regular cycles, then a very light 2 day cycle. When the next cycle was late & I was feeling a little crummy it dawned on me to test. BFP! When I went for my first OB appt, he wanted to date via sono & found out I was 8 wks along. It really made the first trimester go by quickly! That child was born 3 wks early, so it felt like I was only pg for 6 months.

I am going to take things slow with this pg. I don't plan on letting my OB know until I am 7 or 8 wks along.

I'm Deborah, mama to Aidan, 11/02, Sean, 9/04 (my T21 SuperBoy), and Eleanor, 8/08.

Knowing so early makes pregnancy last forever! But I can't not know now that I chart and know my cycles so well. Although this was a surprise I did just have a feeling.

Congrats to all of you!
