Well, I have a history of 3 miscarriages with the last one being in April of this year.  Any, my hubby came home for a visit and obviously we had sex.  Now, with that being said, we did use the pull out method because we both have fears of getting pregnant again because of loss.  So, I guess you can say we would love to have a baby but nervous as well.  Anyway...so, we used the pullout method.  He came home on October 13th and stayed until the 22nd, then went back to Afghanistan.  I got off of my period on the 12th (I think) and started on the 7th.  I typically ovulate directly after my period (and have gotten pregnant directly after my period all 4 pregnancies, so this is normal for me).  I started experiencing frequent urination on the 29th of october...which I didn't think much of for a while until it just clicked one day that this is a symptom that I experienced with my 3rd pregnancy.  I have been under a lot of stress lately so at the end of the day, I chalked it up to that.  Well, now I am overly emotional and cry all the dang time and my boobs have a slight twinge.  I was still chalking it up to major stress until I did a due date calculator.

It says that my fertile window would be between the 17 of october and the 22 of october.  Conception can take up to 12 days and if you count 12 days from the 17th..it would be the 29th of october which is when I started showing symptoms.  What do you guys think?  I am getting to where I am starting to get my hopes up a bit but still trying to chalk it up to stress.  Also, when should I take a pregnancy test?

Hello, It certainly sounds like you had sex during your most fertile time of the month. Even though you used the pullout method, it isn't 100% effective so there certainly is a possibility there. Usually you can test the week your period is due. Do you have a 28 day cycle? If so, you should be good to test in the next few days. Wishing you the best of luck! Let us know what you find out.

I took a test this morning and so far, it is negative.  I am going to wait a few more days and then test again.  I will keep you posted and thank you for responding :)
