    brig418 posted:
    Me and my fiance want to try for a girl. we had sex the 11th,12th & 13th I missed my BC pills those days as well as some days before then. My fertile days counted out to be the 16th-19th. Since then I had light spotting when using the bathroom only for a couple days. And now I`m having more & more symptoms of being pregnant.
    • upset stomach
    • headaches
    • backaches
    • higher temp.
    • heartburn
    • need to use the ladies room more often
    • had a couple leg cramps(very small cramps)
    • stomach feels like its bloated or something don't really know how to explain.
    I had most of these symptoms when pregnant with my son. The only ones I have noticeably miss are getting sick and breast tenderness but I never had them when pregnant before. I don't want to get hoes up before i have a good idea but I cant take a test for a while yet.... what are my odds of def. being pregnant and are they good enough to bring up to my fiance or should I wait?
    Joel Bernstien, MD responded:
    It would be unlikely to get those symptoms within days of conception. I would wait for a positive pregnancy test before to be sure.

    Good luck.

    Also.. check out this post. "trying to conceive a girl" is still a 50/50 process. I would not get too worked up about all that.
