If you got pregnant with the Paragard IUD in place, how did you know?

Something just feels "off" this month. I know, weird to say, but AF is due May sign yet (I'm aware I still have a week before its due). I've had my Paragard a year on May 11th & never had any complications out of it. Since AF ended in April I've been spotting constantly....

I just knew.. i think some women just have the intuition.

I took a test and it showed up neg (i think it was too early) and then i tested again 2 weeks later (i was starting to feel a little nauseas/and everything tasted salty :?) and got a BFP.

I went for a dating scan & to check placement of my IUD and the only sign of pregnancy was a thickened uterine lining. No sign of a yolk sac/beanie baby.

I chalked it down to the fact i was about 4 weeks.

Went back a few weeks later (after the removal of my IUD) and it showed a perfect heartbeat etc - it was calculated that i was around 6w5d or something.

Bub is perfectly healthy - hes now 7mo.

I can never feel my string, but BD says he can feel it-only sometimes though :/
