Probability Of Pregnancy Signs Or All In My Head Please Help

anxious to know - October 12

I began my last period Sept. 19 and stopped taking birth control the 29. Since then, I have only had unprotected s_x 3 times- 1 time was 10-10, the other 2 I'm not sure exactly when but the beginning of Oct. If I were pregnant, would I be feeling anything yet? My nipples are slightly sore, I have had diarhea for the last 4 days, and I am dizzy much of the time, but not really sick. These symptoms could be anything and mostly in my head though... I know the chances are slim, but does anyone have any comments? Also, what is the difference between the date you had s_x when you were impregnated compared to the conception date? I always thought they were the same but now I'm getting confused??? Thanks a lot for any help!

What you might call the conception date is when the sperm penetrates the egg. This is at or shortly after ovulation. The way I understand impregnation or fertilization is when you receive the sperm, which can be any of the five days up to and including ovualtion. Implantation and symptoms are roughly one week after ovulation. The doctor counts your pregnancy as having started on the date of your last menstrual period and calculates 40 weeks forward for your due date. In your case you might have conceived Oct 2 and implanted Oct 8. If you are pregnant (and want to be) you are extraordinarily lucky. I wouldn't suggest testing for another week or more. Please come back and let us know the result.
