Imagine waking up one day and craving for some mutton curry. Strangely enough, you are a vegetarian! For some women, finding out that they were pregnant happened in the most bizarre way that they could have thought of. From insatiable cravings for strange foods to terrible mood swings, these women on Reddit revealed that a-w-k-w-a-r-d moment in which they realized they were pregnant.
And no, missing their period is not one of the reasons.
“When I was pregnant with my first child, I would usually get up in the middle of every night to eat something. A few weeks after the first birthday of my son, I suddenly woke up one night feeling super-hungry. After eating when I went back to bed I told my husband that I think I am pregnant. We took a test in the morning, and that was it, sure enough I was pregnant!”
This cute Good Vibes Only phone cover from POPxo Shop is the perfect gift for your pregnant friend:
“I had a weird craving for a particular fish dish when I was pregnant with my first. Strangely, I hate fish otherwise. One day when I was walking past a restaurant that serves this particular fish dish, I had such a strong craving for it that I immediately went home and got a pregnancy test. I took 7 more tests just to be sure. You know what the results were!”
“Strangely enough, my sense of smell grew so strong that I knew something was definitely different with my body. One day I was opening a bottle of tequila and the smell hit me so hard that I almost threw up. Another time, my husband was cooking eggs downstairs and I could smell it in my bedroom upstairs. I knew right at that moment that I was expecting.”
“I am a skinny woman normally. So one day when a coworker told me that I looked fat, I was surely offended. But she said I looked pregnant fat. Later I found out I was six weeks pregnant. Surprisingly, I hadn’t missed a single period in the meantime.”
“I had such horrible mood swings that they were hard to explain. I was watching a movie and someone got murdered in it. This was when I started sobbing. After crying for almost ten minutes I realised that this was such a stupid thing to do. So I took the pregnancy test and no wonder it was positive!”
“Yes, my period was late but I had it an entire week late even in the past so I thought the same is happening this time around too. But a few changes that I was witnessing in my body suggested otherwise. I couldn’t sleep in my normal position any more. Also, I would feel sick every time I would smoke a cigarette. I took a test and it instantly said positive. I was both shocked and happy.”
“My husband and I have been trying to conceive for a long time but in vain. Also, I always had very irregular periods; sometimes only thrice in a year. One time when I had just returned home after buying groceries, my husband out of the blue asked me to take a pregnancy test. I did, and it showed positive! The next day we went to the doctor and guess what, I was 16 weeks pregnant!”
“My boobs would hurt terribly, for days in a row. Practically everything would make me mad. My periods were due in a week so I blamed it on that and work stress. One day my husband jokingly said that he feels I am pregnant because the mood swings are getting hard to handle. I thought there was no way that this could happen but I still decided to take a test and bam. Pregnant.”
“I started throwing up a lot. This was strange because I never throw up usually, no matter how nauseous I am feeling. My husband suggested that I get a pregnancy test done but I kept telling him that I was sure that’s not the case. After his constant badgering, I brought a pregnancy kit just to prove him wrong. Any guesses who was proved wrong ultimately?”
Giving birth is a life-changing experience, but finding out you are pregnant can be pretty weird sometimes.
