When do you start getting pregnancy symptoms?

Had unprotected sex on Sunday (day i was supposed to ovulate) and Monday, Tuesday. Am I being totally ridiculous in expecting to feel differently at all? Feel like I am getting PMT symptoms which I usually do almost straight after ovluation which obv means I am not preggers. My yongest is 5 and I cannnot for the life of me remember if I noticed anything at such an early stage.

Hey even if egg was fertilised it won't have implanted yet so you don't get symptoms. Apparently it takes around 6 days to implant xx

Some women don't get any symptoms for months, and many early pregnancy symptoms are similar to those preluding your period. Best way to know is to take a test as soon as you're sure of an accurate result. Best of luck either way!

I didn't get any symptoms at all until 7 weeks pregnant (3 weeks after my bfp)

It's too early for symptoms.

Found out at 5 weeks and had suspected for about 2 and had tested... But no proper symptoms until 6 weeks and 3 days... At which point I felt disgustingly hungover for the next ten weeks!

I started feeling nauseous and normal period-coming symptoms at 3 1/2 weeks. I think just after ovulation would be incredibly early but I do know someone who knew she was pregnant because of a familiar food aversion the day after conception!

For me it was around the week 6/7 mark (plus missed period, had normal period pain rumblings on due day but nothing materialised). I did have a rather vivid dream about being pregnant around what would have been the time of conception that made me wonder if it was a sign, DP said it was just because I wanted to be pregnant..... he's probably right, as usual.

I knew I was pregnant with DS before I got a positive test. I just felt different, but I can't really pinpoint why. I think I had similar with DD as well. Generally tingly boobs and just feeling pregnant really - no real way to explain it!

I've had swollen and tender breasts about a week to ten days after ovulation, so weeks 3- 4.
