Could I be pregnant

Hi Guys
I should really know this but its so early in my cycle its hard to know. I am on day 17 of my cycle - usually 27 to 28 days long. We had sex on day 10. Since day 12 my breast feel very heavy and sore and I have slight stomach cramps, going to the loo a lot and have that bubbly fluttery feeling in my stomach sometimes.. I feel so silly asking this as sometimes I think I imagine these simptoms because I want to be pregnant so badly yet every month along comes my period. I know its very very early to have proper symptons
If anyone has any idea what this could be or has anyone experienced these symptons???
Thanks everyone :)

  • It's always possible. Since you have been trying I'm sure you are very in tune with your body and it's changes. For my second pregnancy I had the feeling I may be pregnant 2 weeks in. Keep hoping, keep trying. It will happen.

  • It's possible, you never know :) Do you track ovulation? It would make a difference if you could tell whether or not you were ovulating on the 10th.

    I have been feeling that way all month but it's too soon for a pg test to work - so I wait a few more days :(

  • I started tracking with an ovulation indicator test. I'm on a 28 day cycle too but I ovulate early. So if you are trying just one day a month make sure you know exactly what day your body ovulates. You'd hate to betraying a day late for several months.

  • It's possible but usually those symptoms take at least 2 weeks to show up. The fluttering sensation will take several weeks, around 16 and more than that if it's your first time. My biggest giveaway the first time I was pregnant were EXHAUSTION and constant nausea.

  • I am right there with you :) I want to be pregnant so much and I have read into so many symptoms for months. Even with having intercourse, the egg isn't fertilized until at least day 6 or 7 past ovulation so having these feelings just 2 days after, they most likely aren't pregnancy related. If you must test early, wait until at least 6 days before your expected period. Otherwise, just wait and see if you miss your period. Good luck! I know you want this so badly. I understand.

  • Before I could test I had this symptom of waking up at odd hours and being totally awake! I would stay awake until morning then be able to sleep. I had no idea this was a sign, then AF didn't come.
