How do I even begin this? *sighs*
Okay, so. My husband and I are currently TTA (trying to avoid pregnancy) and our main source of birth control is FAM (fertility awareness method) coupled with withdrawal/condoms. I'm usually pretty meticulous in checking my signs and temperature and I've been startlingly regular for the past 8 months that I've been charting. This cycle, though, there have been a number of changes and here they are:
1. I'm exercising 6 days a week and have been since the start of my last period (early October). This could be a factor so I'm throwing it out there first.
2. My ovulation seems to have been considerably earlier in my cycle than usual. I typically ovulate around CD 21-23, and this time I ovulated on CD 18, although I'm not entirely sure if that's the exact date because I didn't use OPKs this cycle, just cervical mucus and temperatures. As a result I'm not sure if our "careful" was careful enough because we did have intercourse pretty much the whole week I was ovulating, just with withdrawal.
3. Since about 5-7 days past ovulation, I've been feeling weird. My head is stuffy, my back and lower abdomen are crampy and achy, I'm having a significant amount of heartburn eating the same foods I've been eating for months and my breasts are extremely tender. None of these are typical PMS symptoms although I have had my typical PMS symptoms as well (particularly hunger, fatigue and bloating).
ETA: I am currently 10 days past ovulation and my typical luteal phase is 11 days, so that means I'm expecting menses either tomorrow or Monday. At least I don't have to wait much longer to find out!
*sighs* So, what does vaginapagina think? Pregnancy yay or nay? Am I overreacting or does this sound at all like early pregnancy?
