Question: Hi so my name is XXXXXXX - I have 3 kids my husband and I decided to try a for a 4th I tracked my ovulation and we tried in the window! I don’t know if this sounds crazy but because I have down this three times I instantly feel pregnant . Bloated only below belly button, super tired, irritable , my hips are aching and I have full groin pain just on the crease on each side ! Ok so the weirdest part is yesterday I almost felt like I was having XXXXXXX XXXXXXX type motion ( is this possible) like maybe things moving into place ... it almost felt like a wave coming in and out but it wasn’t gas! It’s only been 10 days since I felt it was too soon to test, tho I did anyways - I said negative but my body is telling me it’s a YES! I also ovulate late like 17th or 18th day - am I crazy or can I know after three when I’m pregnant ?

Brief Answer:
Take a home pregnancy test after a missed period

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX
Thank you for trusting us with your health question

The symptoms you are experiencing could be due to early pregnancy or maybe premenstrual as well.

Testing too early can give false-negative results.
So please be advised to wait at least 6 days after you miss your period to take a home pregnancy test. Also, test with the first-morning urine sample as it will have the highest concentration of HCG.

Meanwhile, stay relaxed. Follow a healthy diet.
And take prenatal vitamins as well.

Hope this answers your question

Thanks! I knew it was way early to test! But being the 4th time around the symptoms are all too familiar ! Is it possible to feel all this super early too given it would be 4?

Brief Answer:
Pregnancy symptoms

Detailed Answer:
Hi again XXXXXXX

It is very well possible to start feeling pregnancy symptoms quite early especially in women who have been pregnant before.
However, please stay relaxed and take the test as we discussed earlier.
