Mmmm!! That would be hard to tell but then again I knew I was pregnant a few hours after sex. I just knew it, it was like something all of a sudden different within me. My hubby thought I was crazy. It sounds crazy but guess what, I was. Funny part I made him wear a condom everytime we had sex until I took a test. Tell me I don't know my body. Lol he doesn't question me as much about certain things.

dah!!!!! I wasn't talking about physically knowing but mentally knowing. I know you can't physically know that soon but mentally you can. Call me crazy but then you would have to call alot of others on this entire forum crazy because i'm not the only one who has felt it mentally very recent after sex that their pregnant.
Thank you!!

This is not the first time I heard this..Nothing is impossible! Just because someonelse never experienced it doesn't mean it is not true for another person. Smile

There is still no way possible to mentally know you are pregnant a few hours after sex! The sperm may not meet the egg for another day or so. You can "talk yourself" into thinking you are pregnant but there is noooo way possible to mentally know you are pregnant that soon. Sorry...

Nothing is impossible. You may not be able to sing but another can; you may not be able to play a guitar but another can; you may not be able to solve a math equation in your head but another can. Guess what there are people out there that have a better connection with their self. Don't be a "debbie downer".

Some people are more intuned with there body, your not in there position you wouldn't know so why dont you open up your mind a little. Not everyones body is the same. If you dont agree with everything on here which looks like you dont believe anything maybe you shouldn't post!

Blue-eyed_baby.. I have to disagree with u.. Some women know soon after conception that they infact are pregnant.. Not by a test but by a feeling.. And those women strongly believe it.. You can say you don't believe it..But you can't say it's impossible because it's happened.

Anybody can believe "something" if they put their mind to it. This belief may come from something they really feel that they want, or something they are afraid of. But the question at hand is from niki_75482 and she was listing symptoms based on "physical" feelings, not "mental" feelings. Either way, I would wait it out for another week or so, and take a test. Good luck and I hope you get the answer you want! :)

I can agree that you can feel pregnant soon after conception but not a few hours after sex. Sorry I just don't buy it. Maybe a week or so but not a few hours. It is not possible. Your body doesn't even know you are pregnant yet!

Blue eyed,

have you ever heard of intuition? I'm sure you have, well have you ever heard of mothers intuition?? It's the power of mind which is also considered a mental thing :d . You can't tell someone they cannot possibly feel something mentally just because you haven't. Everyone is different which means they all aren't thinking like you!!!
My daughter was over 2 yrs old and out of the hundreds of times my hubby and I had sex, never once did I feel the way I did at that time nor did I ever say to him I know I just got pregnant. Well my intuition must have been right cause I did get pregnant and I have a little boy to prove it.
Oh well opinions are like habits (lol), everyone has one.
Bye!! :)

I have four children. Each child I had I knew I was pregnant right away. I have a feeling now that I am, and would be willing to bet that the test in a couple of weeks will be positive. I also have friends who have multiple children, and they too knew they was pregnant right after it happened. Do not sit an argue and say it is impossible. Some people are that in tune with their self to know that something just happened. The one saying they do not believe that it is true, I have one question do you have children? I am not saying that every one always knows, but I do believe that more then not they do.

This post is very old so you won't be getting reply from them. You may guess you're pregnant after you have sex. Many women get this, but most don't. Your body doesn't know it's pregnant immediately after sex. In fact, it takes a while for your body to realize it's pregnant and start sending out the pregnancy hormone to get things really going. You can feel that you're pregnant but we have tons of girls here claiming to feel pregnant all the time when they're not.

I "just knew" with Alyvia, and I was right.

I "just knew" about four times after Alyvia and each time I was wrong.

This pregnancy I had no idea.

Your body isn't pregnant immediately. It takes a few days for the sperm to even reach the egg, and a few days more for the egg to make it to your uterus. How do you "just know" you're pregnant when your fertilized egg isn't even in your uterus yet? Easy. You guess and you hope, and you're either right or you're wrong.

I knew the next day. Sometimes you just know. And no, I wasn't hoping. I was even on birth control. So, although there is no scientific founding for knowing, I believe it is possible. Not everything is explained by science. For those of you that need a scientific explanation just remember that science is on going research and has been proven wrong. Think about the original atomic model.
