Stories Of Pregnancy Intuition: Insight And Inner Knowingness Pertaining To Pregnancy Or One's Unborn Baby
"Even though I got a negative result on my first two pregnancy tests, I knew I was pregnant."
"My grandmother knew I was pregnant before I did!"
"At first I actually wanted a boy, but as the pregnancy went on, I just knew it was a girl."
"I knew I was pregnant almost immediately after conception."
Intuition During Pregnancy
The women quoted above are describing an intuition, or inner knowingness, about their pregnancies or babies. Intuition is often referred to as our sixth sense, or our gut instinct. It usually appears as a thought, a sudden insight into something, or a lasting, nagging type feeling. It doesn't necessarily pertain to the facts as you know them and it may even be opposite what you expect. As we begin to trust and rely on these moments of inner knowingness more, using proper discrimination to weed out those coming from our ego rather than from God or our higher selves, they usually become more frequent.
Stories Of Pregnancy Intuition
I am collecting true stories of women's spiritual pregnancy experiences, such as spiritual signs, prophetic dreams, pregnancy intuition, and inner dialogue with one's unborn baby, for my books, workshops, articles, and websites. Below are a few of the stories I've collected which pertain to pregnancy intuition. If you have a story to share, I'd love to hear it!

Lilly's Pregnancy Intuition Story: Soul Knows What Modern Medicine Doesn't - Virginia, USA
(Photo used with permission by Lilly.)
Lilly reported having an inner knowingness about being pregnant with both of her pregnancies. She was so sure, she didn't hesitate to go back to the doctor three times for a pregnancy test during her second pregnancy. She KNEW she was pregnant, no matter what the first two pregnancy tests and the doctor said!
"I remember having a knowing the same day I conceived, both times. With the first pregnancy, the test came back positive right away, just as I expected.
With the second pregnancy, I was again convinced I was pregnant, even when the test told me I wasn't! In fact, I was so sure I was pregnant, I demanded with this second pregnancy that they test me again the next day. That test too came out negative. Those two tests were run on a Thursday and Friday. Still being sure I was pregnant, I returned to the doctor again on Monday, requesting another pregnancy test. This one came up positive. I didn't give up because I "knew" I really was pregnant."
AndreAnna's Story: Strong Intuition About The Gender Of Her Baby - New Jersey, USA
Even though she preferred a boy, AndreAnna's intuition was strong enough to let her know she would be having a girl instead.
"At first I actually wanted a boy, but as the pregnancy went on, I just knew it was a girl. Now, I can't imagine ever wanting something other than this perfect little girl. I would say by about the end of the first trimester around 15 weeks, I was convinced it was a girl. We didn't find out until I was 24 weeks pregnant, but I was right!!"
Elizabeth's Story: An Inner Knowingness Of Being Pregnant - Charlotte, NC, USA
Elizabeth experienced an inner knowingness so strong, she felt completely comfortable announcing her pregnancy to a friend the very day after conception!
"I had an inner knowingness with one of my pregnancies. I knew I was pregnant almost immediately after conception. In fact, I found myself telling a good friend about my pregnancy the very day after conception. I didn't tell her I "might be." I told her I was pregnant. And in fact I was."
Sandy's Story: An Experience With Pre-Pregnancy Intuition - Toronto, Canada
Several women have sent us stories of experiencing pregnancy intuition shortly before getting pregnant. Sandy's story is one of these. Beginning about a month before conception, her intuition started preparing her for her soon-to-be-real pregnancy!
"Even though we weren't trying to conceive, about a month before I got pregnant thoughts of being pregnant and of having a boy kept popping into my head. It wasn't thoughts of wanting to get pregnant. It was thoughts of being pregnant and of raising a child. The thoughts grew more and more intense all that month. About a week after conception, I knew it without a doubt. I knew I was pregnant and that the baby would be a boy. My son is two and a half now, and is the joy of my life!"
Barbara's Story: A Grandmother's Intuition - Nashville, TN, USA
We've also heard several stories about relatives or friends who learned about the pregnancy even before the mother-to-be did. Barbara's story is a nice example of this!
"Although I wish I could say I'd had intuition about being pregnant, it isn't true. Instead it was my grandmother who had the intuition! Can you believe that?! She came to visit at Thanksgiving and brought with her a bunch of my mom's old baby things, clothes and blankets and stuff. I said, "What is this for, Grandma?" She just smiled and said, 'In case you need it." A week later I discovered I was pregnant."

Nice and unusual lens! Very inspirational! Yes, there is an awesome amount of non-verbal wisdom in us isn't there!
anonymous on April 26, 2013:
@anonymous: I disagree. Common sense is not a 6th sense. It is a baser instinct that all animals have. It is the survival instinct. The very thing that has kept us alive since the beginning of time. The 6th sense is the spiritual/ higher awareness in and around us. Like the other 5 senses we all have it but it can be naturally stronger in some people. However unlike the other senses it can be strengthened by anyone with an open mind and training.

What an awesome lens! I love that so many other women have experienced that just "knowing". Pregnancy truly is a spiritual time!
anonymous on February 26, 2012:
I like these kind of real-life experiences. My only observation or variation in opinion is that 'Intuition' is misconstrued to be the 'sixth' sense - whereas 'it is not' IMO! The sixth sense is 'common sense' - which most lack anyway!
Intuition, clairvoyance, telepathy etc. are the 'seventh' sense!
PS: All animals and humans have 5 basic senses - all humans are supposed to have 'common sense'! (Sixth sense!) :))
