Wife had an upset stomach, threw up and just wanted to sleep. Thought it was because of the dinner we ate. I sensed something was up when she just refused to get out of bed all day. Got a test and found out later that evening

We also just attempted to conceive literally once and then decided maybe we should wait a few more months. But Mother Nature had other plans lol

I was *exhausted* - we were visiting family and I couldn’t even stay up past 9 to drink wine (my favorite pastime 😂). Husband was like, uh, you are only this tired when you’re pregnant. Why don’t you take a test? I tested positive at 4 weeks exactly.

like

i craved soup in the summer before i took a test. i also never eat soup. also had crazy vivid dreams. Those were the most notable signs for me.

like

Crazy sore breasts/nipples. Felt as if they were severely scratched/cut.

Felt those symptoms about 2-3 days before the test - would have taken it sooner but I was in denial I guess, HA!

I was swimming in the semi-clear waters of Miami Beach when all of a sudden, my breasts felt hard and my stomach felt funny.

I thought it was just period symptoms but then I realized my period was a week late at that point. Husband and I casually walked to the Walgreens on South Beach and took the test thinking there’s no way. The rest is history lol

Super tender breasts! Both times within 6 weeks. And for my second pregnancy, seeing an elevated resting heat rate on my Fitbit days after ovulation.

Yep elevated RHR for me too!

Felt implantation each of the three times I’ve gotten pregnant, so 6-8 days post ovulation.

I can always feel when I ovulate, that’s probably the closest comparison in sensation but it was clearly located centrally rather than one-sided pain.

Smell and tastes. I kept saying this tastes weird this smells funny….sure enough my partner was like will you just take a test. I said no way — absolutely positive.

I usually had this sharp sense of smell before period but at the end of week 4, I hadn’t get it. So I just tested it. Viola!

I had no symptoms. I felt implantation which was just a thud in my uterus and then slight bleeding. Then I simply missed a period, and I knew for sure.

Intense period cramps even though my period wasn’t supposed to start for another week. Then I craved eggo waffles while I was grocery shopping. Picked up the waffles and a pregnancy test lol. Found out I was pregnant 2 days before my missed period (ended up being twins!)
