Is it possible to not have preg symptoms?
mnb311 posted:

This is my second month of TTC and I am waiting for my period any day now, actually I am hoping it is NOT coming and that I am preg! My question is could I be pregnant and not have any symptoms 2 weeks after ovulation? I took a test on Sunday and it was negative but it could have been too early. When should I test?

I don't have any PMS symptoms and should have gotten my period this past Saturday, today is Tuesday.

When I got pregnant with my DD, I felt as though AF was going to start. The only true pregnancy symptom I had was a heightened sense of smell, gagged and threw up, but just once. The following week at 14dpo I got my BFP, the day AF should have started. I had taken a test a few days b4, but it was negative. So yes, you could have taken the test too early. I would wait until the end of the week and if AF hasn't come, take a test with FMU (first morning's urine). HTH!

Hi i have jst ovulated yesterday and when i do i have symptoms , so do you really think i stand a chance of concieeving this month.

Yes, you could be pregnant. No, not everyone gets symptoms (although breast tenderness is very, very common). And yes, every pregnancy can be different. You could have tremendous syptoms with your first pregnancy and none with your second (which can be unnerving for many women). Good luck!

Thanks! Today is 19 DPO and I took a test this morning and it was negative. No AF yet. Is there still a chance I could be pregnant?

I would test! I had NO symptoms except breast tenderness. I just took a test on a hunch and got a BFP! I'm now about 5 weeks along, I'm starting to feel the tiredness and stuff now though.

There is a chance. If your home pregnancy test is still negative, it's probably time to go see your health care provider and see what they think.
