Trying to conceive. Tracked ovulation. Abdominal cramps, white vaginal mucus discharge, nausea. Pregnancy symptoms?

my wife is 24 years old and we are trying to conceive, we timed our attempts close to ovulation and now for the past few days (a week after ovulation), she complains of abdominal cramps. she has a thick white vaginal discharge (just like semen) , from time to time and yesterday (6 days post ovulation), she had a brown membrane like discharge, sometime accompanied by a light brown mucus like discharge. today only the white discharge has returned. she also occasionally complains of nausea though she feels it might be because of bad food we had a couple of days before. it looks like we need to wait another 10days for doing any urine test and this wait freaks us out. are these symptoms of pregnancy? when shall we take the urine test?

Hello
Thanks for your query.
The thick egg white like consistency of the cervical mucus is normal after ovulation.
At present, there is no other option but to wait till she skips her period.
There are no symptoms which will reliably tell you whether she is pregnant right now or not.
The undue stress would just freak you out and negatively impact her hormonal profile.
Please wait until your wife skips her period by atleast a couple of days before taking a pregnancy test.
Take care.

Hello,
Thanks for posting to HCM,
Do your prenency test.
Most home pregnancy tests will give accurate results if you test at the time your period would normally be due, about two weeks after you ovulat.
Regards,
