Ok well this is a dumb question but can you get pregnant having sex on CD 6 at the last day of a period?
I always was naive enough to believe the sperm would die before ovulation on a 28 day cycle.
The reason I'm asking is because I have every classic symptom but I'm only on CD 14 which doesn't make sense. I wasn't even thinking about it until I had to leave the cinema twice as the nausea was so bad but I never vommitted. It felt like I was driving through the blue mountains and it was a 2D movie and I've never been sick in a movie before. Then I've had headaches and body aches for a couple days but no runny nose, no sore throat, no symptoms of illness. I've been tired but also can't fall asleep and my knee aches which only happens during early pregnancy or my period.
It's bizarre. I've never felt this way except when pregnant. The only symptom I'm lacking is the constant cramps.....
I feel like such a twit as I'm most likely just coming down with something but I'm always an anomaly and go figure when my doctors said no pregnancy that will be when it happens :/

ETA I know the only way to know is to test but the next 10 days waiting will kill me.

Ive also been using opk's as we want ttc in about 14 months when I get the ok from my specialists but are going to attempt to gender sway.

I got a half strength line ( not darker than the control) on cycle day 9 (my first test) but then they got lighter and are now completely negative or the last 4 days. Why would I not get a dark line only half dark and then no line at all cycle day 14 which is the day I normally ovulate. I had all classic ovulation symptoms 3/4 days ago.

Okay, I'll vote for possible. If my math is good, this is how it COULD be possible.

Sex on CD 6and
Sperm lasting 3-4 days and
Early ovulation on CD9/CD10
And implantation of 4-5 days...then yeah, could be!

That's a lot of "and" but the medium-then-light OPKs tell me maybe you surged on CD8 and it was already fading by CD9 when you first tested. So then you would've ovulated on CD9 or 10. How have your cycles been since Logan was born? (Strike the LF comment. I should not do math when tired!)

As a plus, if you were planning to sway, one of the biggest recommendations is to have sex a couple days before ovulation to have the female sperm sitting around waiting for the egg, so that might work out for ya.

Yes. Both my children have been conceived that early in my 28 day cycle. Day 7 for the first and Day 5 for the second.

Thanks so much for the reply!

My cycles have been like clockwork. My first cycle after birth was 36 days after delivery and then 32 days and the last two cycles were 28 days spot on.

DH has been in Afghanistan but he came home for a few days for leave over Christmas. Can my body force ovulation if there has been no sex or man around for 3 months and then suddenly there is sperm present so my body thinks "hey better take advantage before its gone" haha

I'm a little worried as my doctor even tod me to stay off Skype as I needed to give my body a break and my Ob says I'm 'too' fertile.

I've never ovulated early before but perps apps there's a first time for everything.

It's going to be a long 10 days!

Niggles - do you always ovulate early?


#7 kpingitquiet

Posted 08 January 2013 - 09:39 PM

Wellllll I would say it's possible that his trip home inspired some fun hormonal activity and hormones are what make the ovaries do their thang biggrin.gif so...I'll be keeping tabs on you for 10 days!

#8 niggles

Posted 08 January 2013 - 09:44 PM

Yes, maybe your body smelled man! wink.gif I hope it all works out okay for you.

I can't be sure when I ovulate. Given how fertile I assume we are we've never had to chart. The second time around we weren't planning to really try for another month but jumped the gun just that once on Day 5 and that's all it took. It didn't sway gender by the way. Our second is a boy much to our suprise.

That said, my sex drive is highest mid cycle and that does predict ovulation somewhat. I don't think I'll ever know.

#9 Soontobegran

Posted 08 January 2013 - 09:52 PM

Yes indeed.  original.gif
Our 5th was the result of having sex on Day 4. This I know for a fact because my DH went away for the rest of the month and I was pregnant when he got home 3 weeks later.
I actually still had the remnants of the first period I had had for 4 years. I think that some sperm last for a very long time....this is the only possible answer to why I got pregnant.

Yikes...well soontobegran I guess my body is confused or I am really UTD

I'm a bag of nerves...I was not planning this but I would be ok with it even though its really bad timing with DH away and a 4.5 month old! We were not planning to try for another 14 months.

That's a lot to process. Will you be able to chat with your husband any time soon?

#12 PinkSurvivor

Posted 08 January 2013 - 10:24 PM

He called today and he said there was no way. I don't know if he'd be able to pick his jaw up off of the floor. He said he wants to wait until he gets back but if its done it's done there's no going back and if not we can revert to our original plan and wait a year or so. If I am pregnant I have a feeling my doctors won't be impressed...

Now I know I am not completely crazy and it can happen I will just have to wait it out and test

#13 lozoodle

Posted 09 January 2013 - 06:33 AM

My vote is for possible, but quite unlikely.

But I guess anything is possible, your cycles could still be out of whack since giving birth so recently.

#14 Corella

Posted 09 January 2013 - 06:56 AM

It is possible but if you have a 28 day cycle then ovulating on day 8/9 would leave you with a perhaps too long luteal phase (needs to be 12-16 days to be fertile). If you did o that early then you can test at 12DPO and be reasonably confident of the result.
If you don't want to make a baby and your cycles are still a bit unpredictable and/or it's important not to conceive, maybe use protection? If it's not important then go for it wink.gif.

I hope whatever the outcome you are OK.
It is probably more unlikely than likely but as long as you are okay with it if a pregancy has happened then that is all that matters.
Lots of luck PS.

#16 becstar101

Posted 09 January 2013 - 08:10 AM

Another one for possible but unlikely.

It would also be very, very early for pregnancy symptoms (unless you've found symptoms occur this early in your other pregnancies?)

I think it's more likely you're coming down with something. Hope it works out well for you.

#17 Natttmumm

Posted 09 January 2013 - 10:35 AM

Anything is possible. This baby was made way out of the correct dates. I know that as DH was away straight after for a week. I had a miscarriage 3 months earlier so my cycle was all over the place.
I only knew I was pregnant as I felt sick too.

#18 PinkSurvivor

Posted 09 January 2013 - 06:03 PM

I figure its fairly unlikely too. I guess I just got worried and was hoping everyone would as it was impossible....I did until yesterday and my googl marathon. My reasoning being I ovulate on CD 14 (usually) then sperm would not live 8 days to fertilise the egg even in the best conditions so I figured it was 'safe'. And it was while I still had light spotting from my cycle and there was a spa involved TMI sorry. I also can't have any hormonal contraception on order from my specialists so I took a risk that I felt wasn't risky at all at that time.
I'm now spotting light pink....which I just discovered so god knows what that means. I haven't had spotting since my first cycle after birth when I overdid the exercise my first two weeks back at the gym (I went too hard too soon after birth)
I'm doubtful I'm pregnant too many flukes would be necessary but I won't rule it out until I test. Thanks for the advice original.gif

#19 Wishing2011

Posted 10 January 2013 - 01:05 PM

How far are you into your cycle? Progesterone can mimic EPS so if you are still early in the TWW (before 7dpo) it is unlikely a sure sign.. With my current pregnancy I had no symptoms at all apart from some strange cramping that started from about 14DPO and lasted about a week afterwards. Everyone is different though.

#20 PinkSurvivor

Posted 12 January 2013 - 11:58 PM

Well it's safe to as there is no chance I am pregnant. I stuck with the opk's and got a definite positive on CD 17 which is rather late, only 11 days before my cycle is due.
Well that's a bit of relief for me, my doctors would have been so upset. I've got an appointment to get fitted for a diaphragm which s very old school but I can't have hormonal contraception so it seems like the best option besides condoms
Thanks for all the replies

#21 Guest_Sunnycat_*

Posted 13 January 2013 - 12:09 AM

Just to scare you, I'd do a positive pregnancy test as well to be safe.

When I got my BFP I accidentally did an OPK instead of a HPT and the OPK came up positive which apparently can happen.

It's very unlikely that you're pregnant but for peace of mind best to POAS anyway.

#22 PinkSurvivor

Posted 13 January 2013 - 12:30 AM

Haha I'll definitely do a test to be safe but I'll do it closer to my cycles end in about a week so at least I now if its negative its definite. I will post an update I promise original.gif
