When you ovulate, the leftover follicle forms a corpus luteum which produces progesterone, which is responsible for a lot of different things like bloating that could be symptoms of either pregnancy or PMS. 

At 3 dpo, even if your egg has fertilized, you could not actually be pregnant yet. At this point, your fertilized egg would still be traveling through your Fallopian tube. The earliest that implantation can occur is around 6 dpo, with most implantation occurring between 7 and 10 dpo. Here’s a cool picture that explains it:

Right, you cannot have pregnancy symptoms at 3 DPO.  it doesnt even implant until 7-12DPO and after that is when you could possibly have symptoms at the earliest- after it has implanted.  Unfortunately those symptoms also mimic your period.

After I O, the progesterone gives me crazy symptoms (bloating, cramps, sometimes nausea) that mimic pregnancy symptoms. I imagine the month I get pregnant (fingers crossed) I won’t know until I miss my period – or if something completely different to normal happens.
