I don't know if I could be pregnant

I have a 4 1/2 year old. Me and my hubby are trying for a 2nd one. The first time I was preg I took a test 4 weeks after i had sex and it came out that I was preg. But at 6 weeks preg I had an adboshion. Then 9 months later I got preg with my son but didn't know I was preg for the first 3 1/2 months. Now I am reading everything to know about first signs of preg. I got my IUD out Fed 28th and I asked my dr how soon could I get preg and she said in 2 weeks. The week I ovulate I had sex 5 days before I ovulated and 8 hours after I ovulated. then 5 days later I started to feel like the room was spinging and I felt like I was going to fant. Then I saw my boobs were a little bit biger and the darker part was much darker. But that happens when I get my period. But I took a preg test today two times and it said I was not preg. I get my period today or tomorrow. I am getting a lot of cramping for the past hour. But I feel like I might be preg still and just feel like I didn't have anoth HCG in my pee when I tested. I have gained 3 pounds since I took my IUD out. there was one day when I felt like my mind was rasing very fast the day I was ovulating. Could I be pregent and it is not showing up on a test yet. I know some people that tested a week after they ovulated and got + on the test. I never test before I missed a period. But this time I did and it was - sign everytime. I don't want to keep spending money on a tesat if it will tell me I am not pregent.

It all depends on when you actually ovulated. If you ovulated later than you think, you could possibly be too early for a positive on a home pregnancy test. What you doctor told you (about ovulating 2 weeks after having the IUD removed) is just an idea of when it would happen. Which IUD did you have? If it was one with hormones, It could take a bit longer for your body to adjust to the hormonal differences. Since you are waiting to see what's happening since stopping your IUD, I wouldn't test until after you miss your period. Good luck!

Thanks. Today I started to bleed. But it was lighter then it was when I was on the copper IUD but it was red like. I read it is pink or brown like. But some I read said it was red and then went brown. I even read it lasts 2 to 3 days and some have had it for 8 day. I even be writing down my temp every 2 to 3 hours for the past 3 days. and it been in the 98's a lot. There are times when I had it in the 97 and then went up to 98's. My body been feeling hoter then it dose. I been seeing blue blood veins on my boobs and my arms the last 2 days. I been feeling very light crmps like something is moving very very slow in my tommy. I even feel disey every time I don't eat something. But I want to take a preg test but I feel like it will still say I am not preg. But a big part of me thinks I am. I been reading a lot about the signs you get in the first month of being preg. I ovulated on the 15 of this month. and today was the day I was going to get my period but it came very light like you get when you get preg for some people. I think I will wait a bit longer before I test again. I been feeling like the room been sping a lot.

Everyone reacts differently to readjusting after going of birth control, so it's really hard to say what's going on for sure with you. It could be related to your body readjusting. See what happens with the bleeding. If you still feel concerned about being pregnant in a few days, take a test.

I been having very light bleeding today. Then didn't need to us anything. I think it is just the bleeding from when the egg is were it should be. But I will wait a month before I take a test

I just can't get it out of my mind that I could be pregnant. B/c I been taking my temp every hour for the past 6 days now. It been getting into the 98's more and more. I had bleeding for 3 1/2 days now. It stoped bleeding a day ago. the tonight I had on very little sto of red and it was mixed with clear stuff. Then I got more blue vians on my legs and feet tonight. I read that blue vains on your legs and feet are a sign of being preg. but then I took a preg test for the 6th time in a week and it said not pregnant. I think I am taking them to soon. B/c I ovulated on the 15 of march and had sex that day too and 5 days before the 15th. I am having cramps right now with not bleeding. I read you can have cramps with no bleeding when you are preg. I took my copper IUD out Fed 28 on my period. My dr told me I can get preg in two weeks after I take it out. 2 days after I ovulated and had sex. I started to read and look for signs of being preg. So if I am really pregnant I might just be 2 weeks preg from the time I ovulated. So it is to soon to get a test that says pregnant on it. I even been getting tingleing feelings

If you ovulated on the 15th, the egg would have been fertilized within 24 hours. Then it takes about 5 - 12 days for implantation to occur. Once implantation occurs, your body starts releasing HCG in your urine. The level is very low at first but doubles every 2-3 days usually in the beginning. If you did get pregnant with ovulation on the 15, implantation should definitely be finished by now. It's possible the HCG levels are too low for the home pregnancy tests, but a blood test from your doctor would know for sure.
