@kappasweetiepie:  I didn’t know it at the time but I had symptoms pretty much right away. They only became obvious to oblivious me once I missed a period. But looking back I had symptoms way before I actually was able to confirm that I was pregnant. I am not TTC and its been a while for this momma (my son is 7) but I got my fingers crossed for ya! πŸ™‚

@kappasweetiepie:  IF you ovulate on day 14, which in many women is not the case, the chances of you “feeling” anything is VERY slim. If you do ovulate on day 14, it takes between 5-10 days for implantation to occur. There are no symptoms until this happens.

@kappasweetiepie:  the only way I knew I might have been pregnant is tracking my temperatures, and I guess now my bleeding that I thought was an early period was probably implantation bleeding.  Otherwise, I felt exactly like my period was going to come, and now I am about 4 days past when my period should have been here, and I still barely feel anything, only a few cramps here and there.  In fact, I was so sure my period was starting when I was spotting that I drank some wine the night before I got a positive test, I was THAT sure I wasn’t pregnant.  Everyone is different, but I had more pregnancy “symptoms” the months I wasn’t pregnant, and fewer for the month that I did get pregnant.

@kappasweetiepie:  If you are lucky enough to ovulate in the middle of your cycle, then you could be in the process of becoming pregnant, since sperm can live for a few days.  I would highly encourage you to wait until the day your period is due to take a test, though, that gives you a good chance of it being accurate one way or the other.  If you were to take a test now and you think you just conceived 2 days ago, it would be nearly impossible for a positive to show up.  I think the earliest I have seen a positive test reported from charts on fertility friend is 7 dpo, and that is still pretty dang rare.

Hmmm. Two days post-ovulation . . . it’s likely the embryo hasn’t even implanted yet, let alone enough giving off enough HCG to give you symptoms. Not saying you’re not pregnant, but welcome to the (not) wonderful world of symptom-spotting!

Best of luck and I hope this cycle is it for you!

@kappasweetiepie:  Once again, not completely ruling you out at all, but the best chances for making a baby are to have intercouse one or 2 days before you ovulate, bc sometimes the sperm can’t make it there by the time the egg is released, and the egg only lives for about 12 hours.  I’m sure it happens though, so def. agree with pp, welcome to symptom-spotting! Haha…it is not a fun game.  But let me give you an article that talk about how pregnancy symptoms before you miss your period are probably not true, all early pregnancy symptoms are are progesterone symptoms, which rise every month before your period anyways.  And the true, without a doubt, only way to know you are ovulating every month  is by taking your BBT every morning and watching for the shift, and this is even only an estimation plus or minus a few days.  Watching your cervical fluid can help you determine when ovulation is getting close, and OPKs can help, too, but only surefire way to pinpoint ovulation the best is taking your temp every morning.  Just because your cycle is 28 days, doesn’t mean you are ovulating right in the middle.  You might have a 12-day luteal phase and be ovulating on cycle day 16, etc. It would sure be nice if our ovaries picked the exact middle of our cycles to release an egg, but so not the case.  So unless you are tracking other fertility awareness signs such as cervical fluid, I don’t think it’s safe to say you know for sure you are ovulating on CD14. I would encourage you to browse around on this website, there’s great info on here about tracking fertility signs, periods, etc.!  Good luck, I wish the best for you and do hope you are indeed pregnant!  If not, then I would come join everyone on the POAS boards! πŸ™‚

I felt “different” and weird things going on in my uterus before being able to test (quite a while before testing actually), I told my husband “I think we made a baby, I feel different in my uterus”. I found out at 10 dpo that I was in fact pregnant. I think it’s possible depending on how in tune you are with your body, and how your body reacts. I had lots of cramping my first trimester which started almost immediately after we conceived so who knows, I think everyone is different. Good luck!
