@kappasweetiepie:  The egg, if fertilized, usually takes at least 6 days to implant in your uterus. So, even if you are pregnant (fingers crossed for you!), you likely wouldn’t feel anything at 2 days past ovulation.

Before I knew I was pregnant I had a dream that I was pregnant and gave birth to a kitten.

At this time I was only 100lbs, so very slender.  I actually felt a little tiny bump just above my pelvic bone.  It was just a little area a little harder than the rest.  Then a few days later it was a little bit higher.   I just thought that I was being paranoid and thought nothing of it.

Then about a week later I was working and I was off.  I mean kept making these little mistakes that was just not like me.  My boss said “what is with you today are you pregnant or something?” I laughed it off.  5 days later and still feeling ‘off’ I took a pregnancy and it turned out I was pregnant.

Edit: Forgot to mention that I was actually 6 weeks pregnant when I found out.

I didn’t feel any different or suspect that I was pregnant until my period was late.

Sorry about the BFN. However, I am surprised your doc would tell you this. I have always had a very regular cycle (between 28-30 days). However, I do not ovuate on CD14, I tend to ovulate between CD16-18 with a 12 day luteal phase. Other women may ovulate even later but still regularly around the same CD each month. As for the Basal temping, you are supposed to sleep with the thermometer next to you (mine is on my nightstand) so you don’t have to get up and can temp without moving much. This works extremely well! Ovulation kits are great but they aren’t able to confirm ovulation. Only temping can do that (unless you get tests done in a doc’s office). Charting can also help to identify any problems with your cycle such as a short luteal phase so there are advantages to it. If you want to be more carefree about TTC and are ok with it potentially taking longer (ie: if there are any issues doctors will usually ask that you chart for a few cycles so having charted already saves you this step) then that sounds great. DH and I wanted to get pregnant sooner rather than later though so we decided to chart and use OPKs from the start. Good luck with your future cycles!

I had 27-day cycles and didn’t ovulate until CD20 on the cycle I got pregnant. The only way I knew was temping.  And yes, I slept with my thermometer under my pillow and took my temp first thing when I woke up. It wasn’t hard at all.  I am in medical school and they don’t teach us jack crap about fertility awareness method or charting.  They do say that progesterone causes a rise in temperature, but that’s about it.  Even if you do normally ovulate around CD14, something small can delay it, so then you might think you are pregnant when AF is late when really you just ovulated late.  Having sex every other day isn’t a bad plan, but if that’s your only plan, I would do it for much longer than a “few days past CD14” just to make sure you don’t miss ovulation if you are truly wanting to get pregnant.  I will be the first to admit that doctors don’t know everything and the fact that they base due dates, etc. off of “last menstrual period” and ovulating on day 14 for every single woman with a 28-day cycle is almost sad, but it is just the “gold standard” when hardly anyone actually knows when they ovulate.  Go check out the Charters thread, you can see very quickly that ovulating on/around day 14 isn’t the norm at all.  However, with dating ultrasounds done so frequently now, I think a little less emphasis gets put on LMP date, but it’s probably not enough.  On every OB’s chart, LMP is pasted everywhere.  There are unneccesary inductions and untimely c-sections performed every day because so much emphasis is placed on CD14 ovulation…the U.S. has one of the highest neonatal mortality rates, and they think part of that factors into impatient doctors/mothers who poorly estimate how many weeks gestation baby actually is.
