I’m wondering how other mums knew they were pregnant before actually taking a test or going to the doctor.

  • doughnut cravings lol

  • Ah the wondering. I was feeling nauseas, which started every day at 4pm. I thought it was everything from hunger to something I’d eaten. I never was sick through the whole pregnancy but for 3 months at 4pm it started. This went on for a week before I started to think maybe something else was going on!!!! I went to the doctor who gave me the good news. The nausea continued but instead of going on until bedtime, over the 3 months it went away earlier and earlier each day until it stopped. I was about six weeks when it was confirmed. I wish you luck and if you are expecting….congratulations.

  • I have had both a boy and a girl and with both I was feeling off colour for a few days.

  • Both of my pregnancies were completely different. My first one obviously my period was late and I the main other thing I noticed was that when I tried to do some crunches I felt really uncomfortable around the middle and decided to forgo doing them.
    My second pregnancy was very different. I didn’t actually officially find out until I was 5 weeks along (the first had been a reasonably early detection). I had taken two at home pregnancy tests which were both negative. However, I continued to feel a bit off my food at night- not queasy, just not much appetite. I could feel reasonably hungry, but once I started eating I just didn’t feel like I wanted to eat anymore. The other big thing for me was the fact that I normally can run 10 km on the treadmill with ease and this one particular night I was only able to run 3 km before I felt like I was going to keel over. Then I decided to see a doctor. I did a pregnancy test there- which came back negative, and then the doctor ordered a follow up blood test which finally showed that I was pregnant!

  • Besides no period, it was the sore and tender boobs.

  • I had very sore boobs for a few days, might have even been a week. Usually when i get my period i get them for 1-2 days right before it happens, and i knew once it was ongoing for a couple of days that i was pregnant. I also had a lot of pimples pop up at once. I was only 3 weeks pregnant.

  • I woke up hungry. If I didn’t eat I felt light headed and nauseous. I was extremely clucky (couldn’t stop thinking about babies) and needing to pee every 30 mins… That was at 4-5 weeks pregnant! I’ve always known very early. It helps to be in tune with your body and knowing when something is different.

  • I could smell EVERYTHING!!!! Coffee, cigarette smoke and bacon had me trying not to throw up the whole first trimester!

  • Out of the blue, l could not cope with pants or skirts done up around my waist. The usual fit of my clothes at my waist made me want to throw up.

  • I had implantation bleeds for both of mine. The first, I thought that I was miscarrying.

  • Tenderness in my breast. That was the first symptom I had, a couple of days after IVF
