We’ve all heard stories of women who claim they “just knew” the moment they became pregnant and others who didn’t realize until weeks or even months had gone by.
What is it, aside from a missed period, that makes us feel pregnant in those early stages? Early pregnancy symptoms, like tiredness and nausea are sure to tip some women off, but others still insist the only symptom they had was a “gut feeling”.
A recent report from People reveals how a now 8-months-pregnant Jessica Simpson became aware that she was indeed carrying a baby. While Simpson and boyfriend Eric Johnson began to get ready for a road trip, she started to have second thoughts. Simpson explains, “We were going to [go] all-day drinking…ride our bikes, hang out. But I started feeling this overwhelming guilt. Why would I feel guilt at the idea of going out and having cocktails with my friends?"
Simpson then thought of taking a home pregnancy test which revealed why she was feeling guilt over the idea of drinking with friends…and she’s all set to meet the reason in just a few short weeks.
