Could I be?

I already have two children (5 and 3).
I would like a third, but I wanted to fall pregnant in a May, June or July time. And to have a planned baby (first two were a surprise, I had no symptoms before the positive test so can't go off that)

My cycle is apparently 55 days (basically I skip one month). So my period was December and then February. I am now 7 days late.

I came off the pill on 17th March (due to running out, then I decided I wanted my body to have a break of the pill).

So...
17th March - took last pill
18th - unprotected sex
22nd - unprotected sex
24th - protected
30th - protected
1st April - unprotected, pull out
2nd - beginning unprotected, ending protected

During this time, I thought I was due on but it just didn't appear. I had all the signs (tender breasts, cramps etc) but nothing!

I've noticed that my breasts have constantly been tender (feels like when I was breastfeeding, kind of engorged feeling). I am going for a wee more often and I don't feel hungry.

But, when I visited my friend today I could really smell her litter tray. I've never been able to smell it before.

I wonder if I'm just noticing things more because I'm worried.. I don't think I would get a positive until next weekend (4 weeks after we first had unprotected).

They could well be symptoms, they could also be phantom symptoms. The only real way to tell is to take a pregnancy test.

I have taken a few pregnancy tests and all negative. Thought it may be too early as it was only 2 weeks ago we had unprotected, but my period was due 1 week ago.

I've never had any confusion when pregnant with my other children as I didn't have periods.. I came off depo injection and fell pregnant before I got my periods back, and with my second I fell pregnant the day after coming off the pill as it was giving me constant bleeding.

With both, it was literally just me taking a test at random. I do that occasionally just because.
