Patient Comments: Pregnancy - Signs

How did you find out you were pregnant?

I noticed my breast and nipples being sore for 4 weeks now and missed my period. So I took a pregnancy test. I was so shocked that it came out positive because I have polyps. But, I am so happy right now because I am pregnant. I hope it's a girl because my first one is a boy.

My fiance and I tried to conceive for almost two years. We had started discussing adoption or traveling the world. It was an awful fact to face that it would just be the two of us. 10 weeks ago today I told him I felt like I might actually be pregnant. Didn't want to get his hopes up just for them to be crushed like the countless times before, but I felt strongly that something was different. I took a pregnancy test the next morning with the results. A very happy day for us.

I had decided that I would move from one unit I was renting to one I had bought. I was rushing around and just keeping busy I had noticed that my periods stopped all of a sudden. The previous two were normal, which I thought was strange. I was also eating like a horse and for two (as it turned out). I went into town and took a HPT in the toilet, which came up positive. I went to the doctor's office a few weeks later to confirm it; two positive tests confirmed I was 20 weeks along. My son is now 3 years 8 months.

I had just gotten off depo-provera and I had not had a menstral cycle in 5 years, but I was having many pregnancy symptoms. I had taken 3 home tests, my doctor took a urine test AND blood test, all test forms came back negative. For two months the symptoms went on, so my doctor sent a requisition for an ultrasound, I went and found out I was 10 weeks along already.

I was having extremely bad heartburn and so tired all the time. I've never had heartburn like that before. My friends a work asked if I was pregnant and I went home that night and took a pregnancy test and it was positive! This is my first pregnancy and my husband and I are super excited and nervous.

I've missed my period for the past two months. I've had vomiting and upset stomach. My breasts hurt and they've grown. My stomach has gotten huge. I have an increased sex drive and I cry for the smallest things sometimes. I took one test but it came up negative.

I went to an amusement park with my two sisters, like we do every year. For the first time ever, I got motion sickness while riding rides. I still felt sick a week later. I noticed my period wasn't as heavy as normal, and I was also very exhausted, barely able to stay awake to chase after my 18 month old wild son. I figured this was due to working two jobs and going to school full time. I went in for my yearly exam and my breasts were swollen and I told my doctor I thought I might have post-partum thyroid problems because I was so tired. Turns out, my urine sample tested positive for pregnancy. I had no clue, since my periods were normal. He sent me to a specialist and I was 13 weeks pregnant. Needless to say, I was in shock. I now have a beautiful baby girl and a handsome boy.

I don't know how to explain it but I could feel it. I had a feeling inside I couldn't shake. I was hot a lot more often and then my brother walked into my apartment and had sprayed his deodorant and it wreaked (normally I was ok with it) I knew something was up so I went and bought a HPT and it was negative at first took one a week later and it came out positive. We are all excited.
