Actually, though, the chances of becoming pregnant from having sex while ovulating is actually quite low compared to having sex before you ovulate. With the time it takes for the sperm to travel to the ovaries/fallopian tubes in order to fertilize the egg, by the time they reach their destination, you are more than likely going to be done ovulating. Therefore, they say you should have sex 2-4 days before ovulating to give yourself the best shot.

Not necessarily. I know with my youngest, it wasn't until about 5 days after my period was due that it showed positive. Everyone is different, it honestly just depends on your hormone levels, when you conceived, your cycle, etc.. You could go to your doctor and have a blood test, but I honestly believe it is way to early yet :).

Probably way too soon to take a test. Yes, ovulation is the optimum time to get pregnant, but just remember, it doesn't always happen. So you did the right thing having sex during that time, but it then takes time for a fertilised egg to implant and for your hormones to reach levels that are detectable in your urine. Give it another couple of weeks and then do a test :) Good luck!

I"am starting 2 doubt myself now because I don't know if I was @ the end of ovualting or in the middle but I guess I won't know if or not I get my period!

I didn't start with my period.. I ovulate first but then I stopped after we did it.. My period isn't due until the 28 of this month so we should see!

I'm not saying that it's impossible for you to be pregnant. Your husband could have some fast swimmers :) More than likely, though, you probably are not.

Good luck, though. I hope you are!

Yeah it's too early to tell unless you have a blood test. I have a blood test done 8 days after I got pregnant and it barely showed I was pregnant. Either wait until your period is due to take a test, or go to your doctor's and get a blood test.
