Those who have been pregnant... What made you test?


I'm just curious. What symptoms made you test?

welllllllllllllllll

i tested many times because of irregular periods and weird feelings in my lower belly (heaviness and twinges). i also had been on antibiotics while having unprotected sex. my tests were NEGATIVE....

but i was totally pregnant lol.

i had irregular periods so didn't think twice when the next month i didn't get my period. but apparently i should have tested that month, too. because i didn't find out i was pregnant until i was 16 weeks. 16 freaking weeks!

that's NOT happening this time around LOL. i've learned too much about my body to let that happen.

i've been testing every month for a few months now just because i'm so afraid of missing the first tri again.

sorry i didn't really answer your question..

I couldn't imagine not finding out until 16 weeks!

I tested at least once a week with an internet cheapy test from when I stopped the pill. So I'd say boredom while waiting for my bath to run made me test. I'd had no symptoms whatsoever.

I did learn one important thing though. Test in the morning because a positive pregnancy test just before bed really mucks up your sleep!

yes. symptom wise, looking back i had gained weight. however, at the time i was dealing with food issues and honestly thought it was that). i did experience some nausea, HOWEVER, it was flu season. yes, i missed a period BUT my periods were irregular and it was normal for me to use my BC as directed and still miss a period. i didn't start to show until 18 weeks, and even then it could be mistaken for bloat. by 20 weeks it was obvious, however. and i felt him move for the first time at 20 weeks as well.

since having my son i am SO in tune with my body, and lucky for me my cycle is very normal

but dang. i couldn't believe my doctor when he said i was 16 weeks. my mouth=open wide and jaw was on.the.floor.

I'm sure! But I'm glad you had a healthy pregnancy and baby!

The main symptom that made me test was the cramping I had a week before my period was due. Normally i get cramps the day of AF, so these cramps were new and different for me. I remember my boobs feeling different too and having slight nausea.

I also couldn't imagine finding out at 16 weeks! Especially when you had bfns!

I initially tested because my period was late...but I got two negative tests, so I waited a couple more days and when I started to get cramps but still no period, I tested again, and it was positive this time. I was also really tired all the time but didn't think nothing of it because I had just returned to work after the school summer holidays so figured that the tiredness was just due to being back at work
