Hi, I've been trying to conceive for the last 2 months. My periods are usually every 25 days and before my period, I usually have a small light discharge. Well I'm due on the 1st of December, and I'm starting to have that same light discharge, does this mean I'm not pregnant?

I have been trying too get pregnant; Me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex on the 11th of this month and started my period about 4 days after that. Since I started my period, we figured too try having sex while I was on my period. Coil you give me some insight on if I could be pregnant even if I started my period?

So my husband and I aren't trying to have a baby, but we clearly weren't trying to NOT have a baby. I think the beginning of my last period was on the 25th of October. I'm not 100% sure, and then on the 10th, which was last week my husband and I had unprotected sex, we did again on Friday. And the we did again this week on Monday night. I don't know if I'm psyching myself out or not, but ever since I've just felt weird. I feel this twinging on my lower back on the left hand side, and my abdomen and stomach just feel full and bloated. Granted I get bloated every month right before my period, but it's usually not a bloat that I notice, besides when I put my clothes on. I don't have headaches, my breasts aren't sore, but I've noticed I feel a slight nausea every day off and on all day. I haven't had any bleeding or any abnormal vaginal discharge, I don't think I've actually had any discharge in the past 2 days or so. I pee a lot, every 30-45 minutes probably, and I'm not sure if that's from drinking more water, or what. I don't have any weird tastes in my mouth, nor do I eat more than I usually do. I am almost eating quite a bit left, because I just feel full almost. I haven't had heartburn or anything like that. My nipples are a little sensitive, well a lot sensitive where if you touch them you feel like your running sandpaper across them. But I don't have sore breasts either, which other people talk about. Do you think I'm possibly psyching myself out thinking about the fact that we had unprotected sex, or is it a legitimate concern? I did order pregnancy tests and they should be here this weekend, I'm due for my period on the 25th I think. But with not being on birth control I don't know how off my cycle is until I would get it if that makes sense. Since I used the pill last month I would think it would be pretty close to the normal time. On a Wednesday I usually get it. Any advice or knowledge you can share?
