Could I be pregnant so soon after a copper coil removal?

Last week (7th Jan) my copper coil fell out after being in over 3 years. DH and I decided it was a kick in the right direction to try for number 2, and so chose to come off BC all together and said although we wouldn't actively try, we'd not discourage it either and see where that got us.

Obviously with not intending for the coil to come out, we haven't been paying attention to my cycle, but I've worked out i'm due my next period Tuesday (14th Jan). DH and I had sex 31st Dec, 1st Jan and 9th Jan, and I would've ovulated 30th/31st Dec.

The last two days i've been feeling really nauseous and irritable. I'm getting a dull ache in my lower back and i'm peeing really frequently (sorry tmi). I didn't get any symptoms at all with DS until I was 10 weeks.
On Friday I got impatient and took a test. It was negative, but I know it was probably too early.

I really didn't think it'd even be possible for me to be pregnant this month, being as my coil didn't come out until a week after i'd ovulated. Does anyone know if it's even possible?

Has anyone else had symptoms like these, and did you turn out to be pregnant or not. Or has anyone had the copper coil come out like this? I've googled and found it to be a fairly common thing!

Thanks.

Thanks for the quick reply, i've just realised I posted this in the wrong place. I'm new to this site, sorry!

Did you have any symptoms before your missed period? Can you remember if you ovulated before your coil came out?

Sorry for the questions, i'm just finding it hard to get my head around that I could be so soon. A week ago we weren't even trying. I know I need to stop thinking about what ifs til i've done another test in a few days but that's much easier said than done.

I can't really remember sorry
