Hi everyone, i have just joined, as i feel i could do with a bit of online support, and hopefully i can give some back!

I have 2 DC, and recently got married to new DH. When we met we agreed we didn't want to have a baby, i was happy with my 2, he was happy being step-dad to them. However here we are now, i came off the pill last month, and he's thinking about names!!! (I guess life would be boring if no-one ever changed their minds...)

Just wondering, though, obviously early days, and cycle probably completely mucked up (and BEWARE - TMI - only did it once around potential fertie time based on CM, and it was a quickie, and DH didn't "finish" as it were!!!) BUT have been feeling very nauseous over the past few days (but don't feel ill, as such) and the area around my nipples is definitley bigger and a bit darker.

So... is it really possible to get pregnant with no ejaculation occurring??? Or is my body just mucked up with coming off the pill? Sorry that my first ever post is such a long one!!

Welcome to mumsnetsmile

there are a few TTC threads (ttc means trying to conceive) and they offer lots of support.

To answer your question, yes it is possible to become pregnant with ejaculation occuring.

The only way of knowing is testing two weeks or a little over two weeks after you think you ovulated.

I mean: yes it is possible to become pregnant without ejaculation occuring.

belgo Mon 10-Sep-07 12:53:53

small quantities of sperm are realised before ejaculation. so they can make you pregnant

Thanks belgo, and thank you for the welcome.

I think it will be 2wks after (possible) ovulation next weekend, so only a few days to wait. It seems to be taking up my every waking thought though!!!

How about you? Got a new laptop? You were off for a while weren't you?

fryalot Mon 10-Sep-07 14:08:20

Thanks anniemac. Yes, in reality i do see the near impossibility of the idea, and i am probably setting myself up for a dsappointment, particularly as my age is also against me ( i like to describe myself as mid-thirties but i think i am stretching that a bit now!!!) I have been having a look around now, and will now doubt be joining those on the ttc threads for some time. Still, i can't help hoping for the next few days or so!

madoldbird Mon 10-Sep-07 15:19:25

P.S Anniemac, how do you know that my new DH is'nt a teenager full of raging hormones????! wink
