If you’re charting then you should have a pretty good idea about whether you ovulated or not and when.  You really can only get pregnant if you had sex up to about 5 days before and 2 days after ovulation.  (These are averages.)  So it’s a lot harder to get pregnant than the out of the blue stories make it seem.  And I often wonder what type of BC etc those couples were using too!  So unless you ovulated at a totally different time that you thought, you’re probably safe.

I don’t know if this is an option, but have you considered other forms of BC? Or even condoms?

ETA: You’re most likely in the clear! Especially if you’re accurately charting your ovulation.

 It sounds like you are taking all the proper precautions, and you’re probably not pregnant.  But you already knew that.  🙂  The only two “surprise” pregnancies I personally know about were instances where the woman was not taking the birth control pill properly.

The great thing with NFP is that you’ll see a change in your charts if you DO get pregnant unexpectedly.  Most people are able to predict their pregnancy based on their charts long before they can even take a pregnancy test.  So don’t worry!  You’re fine!
