besides a BFP, was there a symptom or feeling that you had that made you think "yeah i must be pregnant"?

i knew i was pregnant from a couple of different signs. first off i was cramping and spotting midway through my cycle (this is the first time i've ever had implatation bleeding). one day i was fine, the next i was just dead tired. and all of a sudden i was hungry ... like a lot. the only time i've been hungry like this is when i was pregnant.

With all three pregnancies that I've had, extreme exhaustion was my first symptom. So that was my first red flag and I was also super bloated and (tmi) gassy.

I had hot flashes (or what felt like I assume they feel) and nausea for a couple of days. So, I decided to test on a whim even though these are not my normal symptom, fatigue.

I was extremely irritable and couldnt even stand myself. Then I had implantation bleeding and tested the next morning.

I guess I didn't really know, but little things made me wonder. I had my usual pre-AF symptoms (tired crampy legs, low energy) but way too early for it to be AF. Then slightly sore boobs. People at work telling me I looked exhausted all of a sudden. So, nothing definitive, I just had a feeling I guess.

Small of the back pain/spine pain. A catch in my get-along as my grandma would say. It was awful and I had only experienced it once before, during my son's pregnancy. It started just a few days past conception. I was fairly certain it was an early symptom as I hadn't had any back injury and if it was a pulled muscle it would have improved instead of staying steadily painful.

so tired! I don't nap ever, but all of a sudden I wanted to lay down and have a nap and I was going to bed super early. Sore boobs.

This is a little TMI! My husband and I had Taco Bell for dinner and we had the exact same thing. The next day I was on the toilet on and off at least a dozen times, diarrhea and vomiting. In between bouts I felt fine. At first I thought it was the food but he never got sick. So I tested this Wednesday. And it was a BFP!! And I'm already bloated.

heartburn!!! I never had heartburn except when pregnant. it started so early so I was hoping I was pregnant and didn't suddenly have some acid reflux problem!

I was totally exhausted and my boobs were really tender. I was thinking that AF must be coming, but that didn't seem right because I never have serious PMS and the fatigue was exactly like my last pregnancy.

Noontime exhaustion, and 1-5am insomnia. I ignored those though, then the bloat kicked in, and I knew it was time to test!

I didn't 'know' but I had a strong feeling. I was all of a sudden SO tired, I only nap when I am sick or pregnant and I didn't feel sick so all of a sudden wanting to nap in the afternoon was a hint. I also don't often get heartburn and all of a sudden was having it all the time. I've never had IB before with previous pregnancies so when I saw that I got bummed that AF was coming early but with AF she usually shows full force right away after I notice spotting and when I got nothing but the tiny bit of spotting I knew I should test.
