Can You Ovulate Early

So I have always been able to feel it when I ovulate and it has always been 14-15 days after the first day of my period. So me and my hubby are always careful for 4 days before I know I am going to ovulate and for 4 days after I feel my self ovulate. It has worked for 9 months know since I had my IUD removed because of some problems with it. Well I am pretty sure that I felt my self ovulate 5 days earlier then I was supposed to. Is this possible? The reason I am asking is because we, well you knowed, the day before I think that I felt myself ovulate and I would love to have another but my hubby says he is not ready for another one yet. If I did ovulate early will a home pregnancy test show up with a correct answer 2 weeks after I think I ovulated or would I still need to wait until my period is supposed to start? Sorry this is so long just wanted to explain my situation. Thank you for any info you have.

Hi Angie - My DH and I were ttc and I have a 28 day cycle Oing around cd14/15. Well, the month that I got my bfp, i o'ed 4 days early (cd 11)! The only reason that I knew I was oing is 1, I could feel it, 2. I had a positive OPK, 3. I had EWCM and 4 (most importantly) , I had a shift in my basal body temperature. so...that being said, I o'ed on cd 11 and got my bfp on cd 23 (12 dpo)....so...an early detection test may show positive right now...but you never know until one...you get a positive test or two..af shows up! GL....Hope that this was some what helpful.

Thank you very much. That was actually very helpful. It has been 14 days today since I felt my self ovulate so maybe I will see if my hubby will pick a test up on his way home. I have been feeling strangely crampy today kinda like period cramps and with my other 3 pregnancies that was always my first sign that I was pregnant. Thank you again for your info.

Yes, it's possible to ovulate that much earlier than usual. Your method of "birth control" is going to fail sooner or later, particularly because you could quite easily have been misinterpreting your ovulation pain. If I'd have gone by when I "felt" ovulation, I'd have thought I ovulated 4 days earlier than I actually do. I know this now from temping.

LIN thank you for your info. I told my hubby after I had the IUD removed that making sure I didn't get pregnant was up to him if he didn't want to have another. I would love to have one more so I am kinda hopeing for our method to fail. I know that my hubby is a great dad and even though he says he isn't ready for another yet every time he sees a baby he gets this huge goofy grin. So I am kinda hopeing that I ovulated early. Well any advice on a good HPT to use that will show up even if it is early. I think that there is one but I would like to tell my hubby what the name of it is so he doesn't have to look around for it, you know how guys are.

Well Angie if you live in the States than I would get him to go to the Dollar tree store it has very accurate tests for cheap cheap cheap! I got my BFP on these tests and would recommend them to anyone. good luck

Downbutnotout thank you for the info on the HPT and I would have him go there but when I need him to stop for something on the way home he likes to stop by someplace that is on the way because he works 1 1/2 hours away and just wants to get home. He drops a guy he carpools with off at Safeway so he will probably get it there. Do the store brand HPT work as well as more expensive ones? Thanks for the good luck wish and if you are still pregnant I hope that you have a healthy pregnancy and baby.

I agree with DbnO (hope you don't mind if I call you that - it's much easier!). Dollar Tree tests are quite accurate and one of the cheapest ways to go. If you ask me, the store-bought ones *are* the expensive ones. The cheapest ones typically cost at least $16 at Safeway. Good luck whichever test you use!

 

angie m - February 12

LIN thanks for letting me know how much those things cost. I didn't know that they were that expensive, my hubby has always picked them up for me and never really told me how much they were. But I think that he would still rather spend the extra money then to try to find a dollar tree store, I am not sure that I have ever seen one before. Maybe they don't have them in WA state, I don't know. Well does anyone have a suggestion on whether I should wait tell morning or if it is ok to take it when he gets home. That is what I have done in the past and it has been 2 weeks since I think that I ovulated. But it is still 5 days tell I am supposed to start my period.

Angie, I live in WA State and I get my tests and OPKs from the dollar tree store all the time. You can google it and it will tell you where the closest one is. They are usually in shopping centers and the logo is HUGE AND FLOURESCENT GREEN AND SAYS THE DOLLAR TREE.

I'm in Vancouver, close to the border of Portland, Oregon... where r u?

 

angie m - February 12

I am in Orting, about 40 min from tacoma. Do you know where that is? I had a great grandma that lived in vancouver but it has been at least 10 years since I have been there. I will look it up but I think that my hubby will be to close to home by the time I do. Orting is kinda out away from the big cities. Thanks for letting me know that they are in WA though so if I ever need one again I know where to go.

Haha, I have no idea where that is. I am native Californian and only moved to Washington about 2 yrs ago. The furthest north I have been is seattle but I think that was on vacation when I was like 10. LOL I don't recall ever having been to Tacoma... hmmm. So Its not a big town then? Well I'll still bet there is a dollar tree. My grandparents live in a rural area named battleground close to me and they have less than 10000 residents there and they have a dollar tree... so I imagine you must... i guess I could be wrong. :) Your welcome by the way :P

Orting is a small town but bigger then the 400 person town that I lived in before. Seattle is were my hubby works, it is 1 1/2 hours away from where I live. I found a dollar tree store that is 7 miles away from where I live but when I called my hubby he was already at the safeway in our town. So was it hard to get used to living in WA, the weather is allot different then that in California isn't it?

Well my hubby got me a Clear Blue easy test and it said not pregnant. It was a two pack and I will wait and see if my period starts when it is supposed to (sat.) and if not I will take the other one then. But my hubby and I used protection after that day that I thought I ovulated so I don't think there is a chance that I could still be pregnant. Kinda sad because I want another baby but I do want my hubby to actually want one when it does happen. I asked my hubby and he told me that the test was $15, crazy how expensive they are. Take care all.

So my period still hasn't came and I had a couple ? and didn't want to start a new thread and have to tell my whole story again. On Friday I felt really yucky so I decided to go ahead and take the other test that I had. It said on the instructions that it is 95% if tooken 1 day before your period is due and since I was supposed to start on Sat. I thought if I am it will say so. Well it said not pregnant on it so I figured it was just my tummy being upset with something that I ate. But my period still hasn't started yet. I still feel bloated and have some light cramps. But know my nipples are driving me crazy, they are itchy and just uncomfortable if that makes sense. So my ?s are, Is itchy and uncomfortable nipples a sign on pregnancy and what are the chances that I still could be pregnant even though the test said I wasn't? Well any thoughts would be very much appreciated. Thank you.

Angie, some women don't get a ++ pg test until they are about a week late for their period. It just depends on what day past ovulation you implanted and how quickly (every other day or ever three days) your hcg levels double. It very well could have been too early and YES itchy, uncomfy, sollen, zingy, zippy, irritated nipples are a early sign of PG. Unfortunately they can also be part of PMS. Hmmm . . . I would suggest you take another test (if possible) in about a week if your period doesn't come. Also, if it is late and you don't get your BFP, it is probable that you didn't ovulate early, but late and therefore (because you used protection) there would be very little chance of pregnancy. :( I hope this helps. Do you have any other symptoms? do you chart? sorry I forgot.
