I found out I was pg 9 days before my period was due with a pos hpt. That was on a fri and the following mon I had bt and that was pos also. I kind of just know when I'm pg I always feel very heavy in my low abdomen and I always feel very dizzy and lightheaded..everytime. I just kind of know! However I have gotten a false pos hpt before with all the same symptoms I always have! Hmmh just when I though I was an expert when it came to my body I guess not. I hope this helps..Good luck.

With my daughter I knew before because I literally couldn't handle the pain in my breasts. Just having a breeze on them killed. It took 3 tests to find out I was pregnant and I was frustrated because I KNEW I was.

With my son, I made a big dinner, then fell asleep over my plate of food at the kitchen table. Literally sat down, dropped my head and slept in a plate of pasta. My ex went out and got a pregnancy test (2 weeks prior to my AF) and it was positive. I couldn't believe it since it was so early. That was the only symptom I had though.

I've known both times I was pregnant before I missed my cycle.....i just knew and the last time my husband was looking at that KY Jelly stuff for him/her from the commercials at Wal-Greens and I told him probably better buy a home pregnancy test instead......he laughed it off, but I was serious.....8 days later we were at ob/gyn due to horrible cramping and stabbing pains and they said you're pregnant.....he fell off the seat......
I was right and i just knew in my heart that was what was going on......
never took home test....just knew.....

Well I would have never know I was pregnant the first time if my bff didn't suggest that I test when I had spotting.  The second time we were ttc and I tested the day that would have made AF late and it was pos...I wish I could be like everyone else and just "know"..I also wish I could make it 9 months and have a little one.
