    No you would NOT ovulate if you are indeed pregnant.

    Best of Luck.

    Actually you can ovulate several times in a cycle - which many times faternal twins were conceived a few days apart. You can also ovulate while pregnant it is called hyperovulation - although this is EXTREMELY rare and while you can become pregnant a second time because of this the window is mere weeks since your mucus plug developes and keeps everything sealed.
