Sweet baby Jesus. I was just Googling...well, HAVE BEEN Googling this for a few hours now. It all depends on the woman. Some women "just know" like I did with my daughter- I was only a WEEK pregnant with our *special surprise* when I knew it. Tested positive on Super Bowl Sunday 2009 just two weeks after ovulation and I actually calculated my exact due date-DD birthday. I won't go into all the details of how I knew since there were MANY things that made that lightbulb go off for me.
From research and chatting with our landlord(my obgyn, coincidentally), TRUE symptoms can start as early as 6-8 days after ovulation. Cramps, bloating, headaches, back aches, exhaustion.....REAL EXHAUSTION...like no other "exhaustion" I've ever felt, thats for sure. Most of the extra trips to the potty and nausea don't occur until 6 weeks or so-from what I've read. But there's no better early test than our intuition...unless it drives you nuts
