  • It is possible to get pregnant at anytime if you have unprotected sex. Good luck!

  • It's not likely unless you ovulate very late in your cycle. Also the swollen feet don't usually come until the end of pregnancy.

  • You ovulate 11-17 days BEFORE you period so if that was truly you period then it would be IMPOSSIBLE for you to get pregnant 4 days before your period.

     If you think you may have concieved earlier in the month then the bleedin could be hormonal bleeding which sometimes happens in the 1st trimester and can be heavy or it could be a miscarriage. If you think you might be pregnant take a HPT but I really think it's unlikely.

    Do you chart cervical mucus as well? That the only real way of knowing when you are fertile and the BBT will confirm ovulation.

     Can you post your chart? I could help you better if I'm able to see your chart. BBT charting tells SO much.

  • I would say that you are not. Ovulation occures half way inbetween your last cycle and this one. You're most fertile just before and just after ovulation. In addition, most pregnancy symptoms don't show up until at least 6 weeks with the expection of a missed period.

  • Ovulation generally occurs 11-16 days before your period. It is possible to conceive shortly before or during your period, but only if you have a very short cycle that month (3 weeks or less). If you have normal 4-5 weeks cycles, it's not possible.

    Since you're irregular, your best would be charting, especially basal body temperature and cervical mucus. Read Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler and check out for good pointers.
