Am I likely to be pregnant?

As a 39yo happily married mum of two you would think I'd know betterblush. We're usually careful but a couple of weeks ago we were not (one time) So, not planning to get pregnant, period due on Wed 05 Nov, this morning my cuppa tea tasted disgusting & my breasts are swollen & veiny. I've spent the last hour and a half since taking the DS's to school researching if I could be pregnant. I worked out I would have been 6 days before ovulation on the night in question & I can't work out if I am paranoid or not. Does anyone have experience in getting pregnant before ovulation? Taconfused

That's what I was told on here when I asked similar. No way to tell for sure otherwise.

I'm pregnant after dtd 5 days before I ovulated. That was my first fertile day though. Don't know if everyone has the same amount of fertile days before ovulation? But I'm assuming not. So maybe you could have been fertile 6 days before ovulation. Eek! smile

I mean I ovulated on day 6 if you count when we dtd as day 1.

Supposedly sperm can live for up to 7 days after ejaculation so yes you could be pregnant.

It's going to be a long couple of days, I'm saying nothing to DH until I know for sure either way hmm

Yeah, I ovulated a good few days after and fell pregnant. Definitely get a test!

Unless you were tracking ovulation using OPKs you may be slightly out on your dates Tracking ovulation became a strange hobby of ours as we underwent 3 years of fertility treatments and I know it very rarely occurred on the day I actually wanted and different 2-3 days either way each month.

Only way to know for certain is to do a test.

Thanks for your support MNetters, I've done a test & it was -ve, then AF started today. Given me the kick to get a coil fitted ASAP, I have two gorgeous boys & I can't imagine having anymore smile
