I'm Liz, I'm 21, and I'm not ttc.
My boyfriend is freaking out thinking I'm pregnant, and I'm trying to tell him I'm not, but now I'm not so sure myself. But its just way too early for symptoms, right?
So here's what's going on...
"The sex" was June 11th about 5 or 6 days after the last day of my period. The first day of my period was either the 1st or 2nd, I can't remember [of course when it counts!]
I have had a chemical pregnancy before last May. I've also had abdominal adhesions, and laprascopic surgery to remove them.
The past few days I've experienced..[and sorry for TMI but I'm sure you're all used to it lol]
-A lotion-y discharge, enough that I had to put something in my underwear because it was soaking through to my pants. it only lasted 2 or 3 days. But this was about 4 days after the sex.
-HUNGER! I cannot get enough food. This is not normal for me. I eat like a bird. And the past 4 days its been non stop. Once I eat like a full meal, I'm hungry again within an hour. Like STARVING. Also having cravings, but I chalk it up to stuff just sounds good!
-The past two days my boobs have hurt pretty bad. Today, they're huge. They don't even fit into a bra that is normally bigger on me.
-I'm getting flesh colored almost kind of white bumps on my areolas, and although I know of the one large vein I can always see, there are also other smaller ones showing up in the areola area.
-Sharp pains in my pelvic area. Its kind of like near the hip bone area. It goes between light cramping and sharp pains.
-I've had a temp of 99 the past three days, and im normally 97.8
-Neausea. Really bad. It comes and goes. Its fine while I'm eating, but before and after it can be bad. or go away when i eat, or any combination. Like I said, its on and off.
-Exhausted! No matter how much I sleep, I could go right back to bed. I just cannot wake up.
-Lower back pain that is on and off. mostly on.
So, the boy is convinced I'm pregnant, and is FREAKING OUT. I told him its way too early to get any symptoms, especially these! At least that's what I've always been told.
I wouldnt be able to have a good test until about the 28th I'm guessing. I did test two days ago and got a negative. Today, I got a sort of half faint positive? Its a plus sign test, but I only got a faint top line. But its blue dye, so its an evap, I'm sure.
Tell me how to convince him I'm not with all this "evidence" that I am.
and if I am, I'll be back, you can bet that, because I have another issue on hand as well :/

Sperm rarely live 5 days, it's more around 3 and only if your body is gearing up to be fertile because the environment will be more 'friendly'...
All the same, it could be possible for you to DTD on CD11 and ovulate soon after that... If your cycle is pretty typical then there is a fairly good chance that you ovulated around then, or soon after, then taking into account like Steph says, lifespan of a spermy waiting in the fallopian tube.
It could also be that now that he has put it in your head, you are noticing things more that are normal for you. It happens very commonly to women who are TTC or think they could be.
Maybe your signs are actually ovulation signs?
Thanks to *Sharon* for the siggy <3
