Could I be pregnant?!

(14 Posts)

On Sunday and into Monday I had discharge associated with ovulation. I had mild pelvic and ovary cramping on my right side during this time. I always seem to ovulate from that side. We had sex on Saturday and Monday, so definitely during my fertile period! Today I've got mild cramping on my right side (near my right ovary and pelvis) and I've got mild abdominal cramping and backache. Could I be pregnant?! I've looked online and there are so many conflicting points of view! I have a 2 year old but it feels so long ago that I can't remember the symptoms I experienced then!

Also, I've slight vaginal twinges (I think it's my uterus?)

Oh, and as of yesterday evening waves of nausea. I couldn't finish my glass of wine last night, so unlike me! I didn't get morning sickness with my first child until 5 weeks but I had it every day until she was born at 39 weeks confused

The symptoms your having aren't from possible pregnancy. Implantation happens 9 days after ov on average (6-12 days after ov). It then takes several days for hcg to rise enough to be detected on a test. Without hcg, you won't experience pregnancy symptoms (which for many people don't actually kick in until more like 4 weeks after ovulation.

So yes, you could be pregnant, but what you're experiencing doesn't sound like it's from pregnancy.

For your sanity, please try not to symptom spot every cycle.

It sounds a bit early for these symptoms considering if ovulation was less than a week ago but not impossible it sounds like your very intune with your body but I would say wait atleast another 5 days before testing good luck

Ok, thank you ladies. I shall try not to think about it for another week or so! 🤞

I ovulated around the same time and have had bad period cramps and lower backache for the past few days. I had this with my first pregnancy too and got a BFP at 9dpo so you could be, who knows 🤷‍♀️. I hate waiting around to find out, time drags.

@purplerainbows yes, waiting is the worst! Fingers crossed for you 😊🤞

So the attached was me back in December, some people on there dismissed me but low and behold I was pregnant. That time I ov Sunday into Monday and it's been exactly the same this time around. I ovulated on a Monday too. The symptoms are also the same so hoping this is all a good omen 🙏

So did you loose that pregnancy?

Its odd that you can't remember the exact same symptoms you had 5 months ago?

@cookielove she said she cant remember the symptoms from her first pregnancy over 2 years ago...

OP all the best, fingers crossed for you xx
