@Mumble5867:  Symptoms come and go, it’s just the name of the game! Have you thought about going into the doctor to get a blood test done? That way you can know now and rest easy. 🙂

So you don’t know that you’re pregnant yet, right?

How did you track ovulation? Are you charting? Temping? using OPK’s?

The egg doesn’t implant until at least 5 days after ovulating, so it’s unlikely that any symptoms prior to that are pregnancy related.

When TTC, every *possible* symptom becomes super obvious. Sometimes you notice things you didn’t before, like bloating, cramping, etc..but you actually always had them before TTC. PMS and pregnancy symptoms are very similar.

If you ovulated 2 weeks ago though, a test would be positive by now…

Good luck, I hope you get your BFP.

@Mumble5867:  You can go whenever! Just go in and say you think you may be pregnant. They’ll draw blood and look for traces of HCG. 🙂

If you ovulated 2.5 weeks ago you could most certainly take a test now…

I honestly had more symptoms on the cycles I wasn’t pregnant, the cycle we actually were i felt 100% normal and had no signs or symptoms of any kind, just a positive test 2 weeks after ovulation. I’d say take a test and put your mind at ease either way. Good luck!

It doesn’t make sense that you ovulated 2.5 weeks ago and still have a week to go before your period is due. Menstrual cycle lengths do vary, but the time between ovulation and your period is usually not much longer than 2 weeks. 3.5 weeks seems very out of the ordinary.

@jny1179:  +1… I’m still confused, the math doesn’t add up. When was the first day of your last period?

Sorry for the frustration. You are entering into a board full of women that know a TON about TTC and will pick apart your cycle to try and give you as much advice as possible. Yes we go overboard. But we want you to be realistic and know as much as you can about what’s happening to your body. 

As far as your symptoms go, yeah, they sound like pregnancy symptoms. However, the progesterone rise that comes after ovulation (regardless of whether or not you conceived) will give you all of the symptoms. It’s VERY hard to tell if they are truly pregnancy or just a change in your cycle. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never felt them before, once you start TTCing you become so in tune with the slightest changes in your body. They may be new symptoms, they may be things that have happened before and you just never paid attention. 

For me personally, the first 4 months TTC, I would get bigger, tender breasts after ovulation, bloating, emotional, etc. The first month I had myself CONVINCED that I was pregnant because I had SO MANY symptoms. But I wasn’t. The 5th month, I didn’t have any symptoms. I even started spotting halfway through the two week wait and thought AF was surely on her way. That was the cycle I was pregnant! Unfortunately I lost that pregnancy at 8 weeks. Since then my symptoms after ovulation have changed again. Now my breasts get tender closer to AF rather than right after ovulation. I bloat a lot throughout the two week wait no matter what. 

The bottom line is, you could be pregnant, you could not be pregnant, the only way to know for sure is to take a test! You will get many mixed responses here about what was and was not a pregnancy symptom. Either way, I wish you luck for a speedy BFP even if this is not your cycle. Just know that the ladies here are very supportive and have the best of intentions.
