And when can I test? Am due on this Friday...

ooopsyoopsydaisy Wed 25-Jun-08 14:27:52

and would I have any signs this early?

Pretty sure I conceived this early. Had a faint positive on day 21 of cycle (not that I was impatient or anything!)and DS is now 7 months old! Good luck.

Just to probably know this, but I read somewhere that ovulation is actually 14 days from when your next period should start rather than from when your last one started in which case day 9 or so is not so far out if it was going to be a 25 day-er!

oopsyoopssydaisy Wed 25-Jun-08 14:35:58

oh God, am terrified

can't face doing test yet

OlderNotWiser Wed 25-Jun-08 14:40:38

Ah. Don't want to be pregnant? Well, fingers crossed for the outcome you, Id just want to know!

oopsyoopssydaisy Wed 25-Jun-08 14:42:37

I mean, I would be pleased, but really shocked and also worried about the birth - eek

It depends when you ovulate. I ovulate on day 11 so sex on day 9 could most definitely cause a bfp for me.

Luteal phase (time between ovulation and af) is different for each woman. Mine is 17 days. The 14 days thing is an average or what it says in most GPs textbooks!

So, er, in short, depends when you ovulate!

Good luck.

I conceived on CD 9 smile

I usually ovulate on day 12 or 13 of a 27 day cycle. But I ovulated on CD9, so it would have been a shorter cycle for me that month.

OlderNotWiser Wed 25-Jun-08 14:47:07

Well go for it then! You have a test lurking I suspect? Tho even if its negative, it could just be too early to tell so a neg isn't definite until period is due of course...but I could never wait, Im hopeless!

Don't worry about the birth - Ive had two doddles, one with no pain relief at all so it is more than possible not to suffer, trust me.

Don't forget they reckon sperm can survive for up to 7 days - all those little tads just waiting to pounce.

Hi oops,

It is possible you ov'd this early. People tend to ov 10-16 days before the start of their next period (many people don't have the standard 14 days that the textbooks claim) and of course there are people outside this range. So if your LP (time between ov and period) is on the 14-16 then it is quite possible. However, if it is on the shorter end of average then you might have got away with it. Either way as sperm can live up to 5 days CD9 is def not a "safe" day if you have shorter cycles. Only way to be certain is to test. Sods law the second you don't want to be pg you'll catch but teh second you want to be it doesn't happen!

sorry x posts with some replies, took me ages to write as the phone rang!

oopsyoopssydaisy Wed 25-Jun-08 18:03:43


if I ovulated and the sperm was there - will I definitely have conceived?

I got pregnant straight away twice before (and once with a split condom too)

argh argh argh

I mean, I do want more children but am now panickign at the thought!

OlderNotWiser Wed 25-Jun-08 19:43:47

Blimey no, definitely not that easy to conceive, Im sure you know that really...but its possible of course. You are going to have to do a test very soon or you will drive yourself mad! (Unless of course your period starts first that is...) Do let us know!!

oopsyoopssydaisy Wed 25-Jun-08 19:46:40

do you have to test in the morning this early? think I have a really old pg test lurking in a drawer...

OlderNotWiser Wed 25-Jun-08 19:49:45

Hmm. Tricky one. Depends on the test methinks. Many can test at any time of day these days. I used to buy this sort due to my GOT TO KNOW NOW tendencies. If its really old then maybe not!! They may even have an expiry date for all I know!

oopsyoopssydaisy Wed 25-Jun-08 19:52:04

yes, it's definitely old, prob Clear Blue about 4 years old

am really paranoid sense of smell is kicking off - keep thinking in a panic "What's that burning smell?" in various shops etc

oopsyoopssydaisy Wed 25-Jun-08 19:53:03

If I get a BFP, I am going to faint at our combined fertility, I have to say

OlderNotWiser Wed 25-Jun-08 19:55:58

Go for it, might as well use it up if its that old! (Dread to think how reliable it is mind!)

OlderNotWiser Wed 25-Jun-08 19:56:51

And yes, that smell thing did start quite early for me I recall...grin

oopsyoopssydaisy Wed 25-Jun-08 20:03:21

mmm, me too, esp first pregnancy


crunch Wed 25-Jun-08 20:09:04

aaggghhh find the test, I've a sore neck from lurking grin

oopsyoopssydaisy Wed 25-Jun-08 20:12:56
