Let me tell you a weird secret — I have always been afraid of being ‘one of those people’ who end up on one of the ‘I didn’t know I was pregnant shows’ and only realize that I am when the baby is literally exiting my body. I don’t really know where this fear comes from or why I have it, but I do.
I am pretty confident that I will never end up in that situation. Not only because I am pretty in tune with my body and chart my daily temperatures but also because my body loves to give me some pretty clear signals when I am knocked up. Sore breasts, an ultra-sensitive nose and I would cry at silly (like really silly) commercials — all which are not typical me.
I asked some friends of mine and Babble readers if they knew they were pregnant before a test would tell them. Many responded with a ‘yes’ so I wanted to find how HOW they knew — what clues did their bodies give off? Did their bodies give off any signs?
