Tiny, I don't think you are pregnant. You probably didn't do anything wrong. I think checking your cervical mucus might help you know when to have s_x. You can only get pregnant after you ovulate (12 hours or so) but you need to have the sperm in there waiting for the egg's release- so you need to have s_x on the days leading up to your ovulation day. Hope that helps! Remember, even if you do everything right, you only have a 25% chance of conceiving each month. It just takes awhile!!!! Good luck!

You can only get pregnant DURING ovulation. Sperm can live up to 5 days, so the few days leading up to and the day of O are you only chances each month. Once ovulation has occured then you just have to wait and see if you made it or not. Most women O one day out of each month, although there is the rare exception of women who O twice during a cycle. The best way to know exactly what day you are to O is to learn more about your own body, learn to watch for signs like cervical position, cm, Ovulatory pains, Of course these Ovulatory cramps can be any where from a week or so before you O, not really on the day of, checking your bbt is good to let you know AFTER you O, but you will see after a few cycles just exactly what your body does, and you won't always O on the same cycle day. Women who learn these things have a higher chance of conceiving (more than 25%) because they can learn to time intercourse better instead of just a__suming they O on the same day each month. try reading taking charge of your fertility, it is a really good book to help you get familiar with your cycles. I would say you probably are not pregnant if your period was fairly normal. good luck in ttc. it's a long journey for most and can be frustrating but worth it in the end! Also I wouldn't always count the day the ovulations calendars pinpoint to be exact. I have been charting close to 8 months now and they never hit the day exactly for me! fertilityfriend.com is great though. It get's closer than any i've tried.
