The "I might be pregnant but I wasn't trying" thread

post #1 of 1837
Thread Starter 


Yeah, that would be me. Anyone else?

I often have cycles where I think it could be a possibility...thinking maybe he slipped up with withdrawl or what not. But this time the slip was real and it was in my very fertile phase. I am only 3dpo (possibly 5 because I wasn't sure) but I have had heartburn and nausea all day and just a "feeling". I know it seems silly because it's so early, but my with last pregnancy I had an implantation dip at 5dpo, and started feeling symptoms a couple of days before. I also tested + at 9dpo.

Of course it could be all in my head. But I'm going with my gut feeling right now.

We were pretty sure we did not want any other children, but we haven't been 100% in our protection methods, so we knew it could happen and neither one of us were distraught about it. We shall see!

Anyone want to join me?

not in this boat, but just wanted to wish you luck on the best outcome, whatever that happens to be for you and your family.

Hi Kim,

We have been using the withdrawl method successfully for three years. But it only works if you don't leave it in

I will jump on board with you as I'm purty sure we just made a baby. I feel very fertile today (I don't keep track very well, but am very very in tune with my libido and my body) and we just went with that even though we know that we can't afford another baby right now, hubby is in grad school, yada yada.
I loooovveee my husband's spontenaity, so what will be will be. We always thought three anyway...

Thanks about the kids!

Oh boy, I wish that was my house!! (the one at the top) But that is in New Hampshire, just a random picture. We would love to move to NH someday soon.

Yay! I"m glad to have another person waiting with me! We usually use withdrawl (it's never failed) but were alternating with condoms this time just for fun (turns out they're not fun). One time during withdrawl he said that he had an oops and didn't get it all out in time. So....today I am 5dpo (I need to fix my chart, I'll do it later) and had terrible cramping yesterday. I had cramping at 5dpo with Brighton and I got a BFP 4 days later.

I told dh I might be, and he was actually kind of excited, but worried at the same time. It's cute.

*crossing my fingers for you* Let's update each other with our symptoms.

I could be in the same boat although the test I took yesterday said I'm not. It may just be a recent increase in breastfeeding, but I've had my period regularly since 6 month pp.

Of course I may just be paranoid about this because I thought the same thing last month and took a test then got my period the next day.

Oh that always happens!

I ordered 10 cheapie internet tests yesterday so they'll be here in a few days.

Are you charting althara?

I need to order those cheap ones too. Spending $12 every time I get paranoid is ridiculous.

I'm not charting though I do want to start. I meant to start one first but I think I need to purchase the special thermometer. Although I do keep tabs on my cervical mucous and it didn't get egg white-ish this month. So maybe I didn't ovulate?

Oh I know, that's what prompted me to go ahead and order some online. The cost of occasional tests from the store is ridiculous.

Yes you can definately O without having EWCM. I used to have eggwhite all the time and then it changed over to watery, sometimes creamy. That's my normal pattern now. And I have conceived with it like this before. I'm not too good about keeping up with temping since we're not trying. It varies month to month. I keep telling myself it would be much easier to know things if I was temping regularly, but I'm just lazy.

I've been REALLY tired tonight. I had to lay down and I almost fell asleep without dh here. If the kids hadn't been pretending I was their daughter and telling me to wake up it's time for school, then I would have been out.

So far the things that make me think I'm pregnant are:

-tired
-peeing more
-cramping around same time I had implantion with ds2
-just that intuition feeling
-heart beating faster at times

Of course all these things could be pms, but we shall see.

I've been really tired too. I've been falling asleep with my daughter at 8:30(ish) every night for the last two weeks and then waking up three hours later when my husband wants to spend some time with me. This is really unusual for me.

And I think I got my first UTI ever last week which I hear can be a common thing for pregnant women. And I've never ever had one before even with my previous pregnancy.

I had some weird cramping a couple weeks ago too, shortly (like a few days) after DTD in my probable fertile period.
post #12 of 1837
I just thought of another thing that may or may not be an indicator. My DD has been switching boobs while nursing constantly for the last couple of weeks. And I check every time and the breast she was just on usually still has a lot of milk, so I'm not sure what's going on there. Maybe it tastes different? The boob switching is really starting to drive me batty, especially in the middle of the night.
post #13 of 1837
Linda, that boob switching was one of my first symptoms when I got preggie with my second baby.
post #14 of 1837
Hey, mamas! Just stopped by to tell you, I am for sure 9 weeks pg and I wasn't planning it! Wish you guys luck on the best outcome, whatever that is for you!!!
post #15 of 1837
I have no symptoms right now except that intense libido...would that go away if we conceived? I think not...I think this is just my incredibly fertile time and that feeling is going to sick around!!!!!
post #16 of 1837
Calvicula - Congrats.

Well we have the answer over here. I got my period. So I'm just paranoid. I think I need to start charting to see if I can stop being paranoid about this. It's getting old.

Awww well, I'm not sure if I should be happy or sad for you that AF arrived. Charting would be good, but I"m charting and even I do this. Of course I'm not good with the temps.

Congrats clavicula!

Fireflies, when are you testing?

I am still cramping today and my boobs are hurting! I'm still tired too. I"m actually getting really excited now!! I'm 7 dpo. I'll update my chart tonight so y'all can see.

It probably better for my marriage that I'm not but I was sort of hoping for an oops.

I understand.

But it looks like you'll be trying soon anyway (according to your siggy).

We wont start trying until '09, and probably late in '09 at that, which is the rational thing to do. I've just been bit so hard by the baby bug lately.

I hope you're feeling better soon. The pregnancy tiredness is the worst.
