I think you should get a pregnacy test. When I got pregnant with my daughter, I was on the pill, and I made sure I took it at the same time every day.

I would just pee on a stick, no reason to sit around wondering when pregnancy tests are so cheap and available.

Have you been charting so you know you did in fact ovulate?  

Have you been sick lately?  Or had increased stress levels?  What about travel?  These are things that can delay ovulation which then delays your period.  For me, I am normally pretty regular too, but when we went to Florida a few months ago, my period was super late when we got back.  I was just starting to get concerned, but then thought I rememberd the book “Taking Charge of Your Fertility” saying travel could delay your period.  So I referenced the book again and sure enough, I remembered correctly.  My period came a short while later.

Hope you get yours soon!

All of those signs can definitely be PMS, or could also be early signs of pregnancy.   My cycle is still somewhat irregular (been off BC for a year now) and I know that when I worry about it (i.e. if I don’t get it by tomorrow, I will definitely have it when we’re on holiday etc…) it tends to come a lot later.   It could be that the added stress of worrying about it could be holding it off a bit.  And if this is your first month ovulating, your cycle could really be off – it takes a long time for your cycle to get completely back to normal after being on BC for a long time. 

With all that being said – just go buy a test.  I know, sometimes it’s easier just not knowing but the sooner you can put your mind at ease, the better.  Good luck to you!

No reason sitting around stressing about it.  I was the same way (within our first year of marriage, using condoms) and I was 2-3 days late and could just feel that I wasn’t having normal pre-period symptoms (aka I could tell it wasn’t coming any time soon).  After a quick run to the dollar store (no need to waste a ton of money) sure enough the stick came up positive.  We later went and got a more expensive test to comfirm. 

We are now really happy and 7 months pregnant!  We will celebrate our first anniversary in 3 weeks!

I would say go ahead and test.  At first the fact this was your first odd cycle seemed to point to a possible pregnancy.  But then you said this is also the first time you’ve ovulated.  I don’t think it’s much of a stretch to say it’s likely that since this is your first “real” cycle it could be different than all of your others.  Good luck and go test!

You sound pregnant. You have every single symptom I had when I was pregnant – using birth control perfectly.

Also, condoms are not 98% effective, even when used perfectly.

First of all, relax. Take deep breaths. While it is possible to get a negative test and still be pregnant stressing will do you know good. Babies never seem like the ideal time, but having one will not derail your life. May some things become more difficult? Maybe, but usually the good outweighs the bad. Millions of women have done far more challenging things with children so it is possible to still do everything you want…. IF you are pregnant. (Shoot, my aunt got her doctorate when pregnant with her FOURTH child and a barely present work-a-holic husband :). 

You said you knew when you ovulated.. did you have sex then? Within 5 days before or 24 hrs after? If not, it’s highly unlikely that your pregnant. IF so, there’s a chance, because only abstinence is  100% guaranteed at preventing pregnancy. eta: If there’s enough hormones to stop AF it should register on a test… 

We use the STM method of NFP so we abstain when I’m fertile. We don’t want to use condoms for other reasons but the fact is, the best way to prevent when necessary is to abstain. (and we get honeymoon time every month after 🙂

I don’t want to scare you, but sore breasts, frequent urination and fatigue were the first signs I was pregnant. I was young and we always used condoms. It’s best to just go get the test and find out instead of driving yourself absolutely nuts wondering. Good luck.

eta: just saw your update, best to go to the ob/gyn 🙂
