My husband and I are trying to have a baby. I wad supposed to start the 16 of last month buts since I didn't we had sex several times and each day waited to see when I would start. Well 5 days later I started. It was my usual 5 days but in the third day it went away so we had sex yet again. The next day I started again. Well when I got off we had sex multiple time and he did cum inside every single time. Is there any possibility i could be pregnant? :) i would love to know

Anyone get a bfp at 8 dpo? I am having a ton of symptoms and dying to test!! Nosebleeds, cramping, nausea, trouble sleeping. It might just be my body playing tricks on me though.
