    Might be pregnant
    ashleythompson21 posted:
    me and my husband have been trying to conceive for about 10 months now. about a week ago I started ovulating and we tried two days before and the day of. All week I have bin feeling really odd. I'm having slight cramping just about every day so far, the other day I was having hot flashes, I have been urinating double times than normal this week, feeling very phisicaly exhausted. the thing is though I'm showing some symptoms even my friends think I might be but its only been the first week I'm not even sure the egg has implanted yet, I've had no implantation bleeding. My mother said that my body might be having a false pregnancy because I want to be pregnant so bad, what are some other opinions on the situationplease it'd be much appreciated

    It takes 6-10 days for a fertilized egg to implant and another several days for there to be enough of the pregnancy hormone to produce symptoms. If it hasn't even been a week, it's way too early for symptoms. With both my pregnancies, the earliest I started having symptoms was 5 1/2 weeks along.
