When will I show signs if I am pregnant

Hi everyone I'm new to this site and I am curious. I'm 17 about to be 18 and my boyfriend (hes 18 turning 19 February 28) and I had an accident Saturday night. We had unprotected sex the 21st of February and I am expected to get my period the 9th of March. When will I know if I am pregnant or not and when will I show signs?

  • When will be a good time to take a test?

    Answer by Cj605 at 6:55 PM on Feb. 23, 2009

  • sometimes within a few days before your period is due, but that is with the ept digital or first response. most likely though it should be accurate within the few days after your missed period.

  • Take a test once youre late then youll know if youre pregnant or not. Just go to the store and pick up a pregnancy test.

  • Wait about a week or so after your missed period and then test... Some women show signs, and some don't. You might notice your breast begin to hurt, or a slight cramping feeling, or even some light spotting if your pregnant. Just don't stress out about it too much, and wait and see! Good luck! And let me know happens!

  • Everyone thanks so much for your help. One more question when did i ovulate ?

    Answer by Cj605 at 6:58 PM on Feb. 23, 2009

  • I think ovulation occurs in the middle of your cycle...14 or 15 days before or after I believe... I had a late ovulation...5 days late. I only know this because I used OPK to get pregnant with my LO...

  • Well I am very fertile today and we had unprotected sex saturday so chances of getting pregnant are high or low?

    Answer by Cj605 at 7:02 PM on Feb. 23, 2009

  • I'd say medium. Your best chance is on the day you ovulate. Slight chance within 24 hours of ovulation. And 2 days before ovulation is a slightly less chance... But like I said, don't stress about it. just wait until your missed period. If you're stressing then it could make your period really late. You can PM me if you'd like. :)
