Trying to conceive

Hello ladies - I am over 45 and was not trying to get pregnant; but at the same time I was not not trying either. I am going with the flo. AF is supposed to be here in about 9 days - however, for the past week - I have been extremely tired, exhausted to the point I fall asleep by or before 9 pm when I usually don't go to bed until 11 pm. My breast are sore and full. My bra barely keeps them in. I have been having abdominal cramps all week continuously. My sides and back have been starting to hurt since yesterday and getting more pronounced by the day. Today the front part of my legs are starting to hurt. And to top it off, my tummy is tender. Could I be pregnant? Its been too long. Wasn't expecting it but now I am looking forward to it.

Might be worth getting a first response pregnancy test. Although if your due to have AF in 9 days that would put you as 5 days past ovulation so really very early to have symptoms as much as you've described. Saying that I've never been pregnant so im not the best person to advise on that. Can anybody who's been pregnant share any light on how soon you can get symptoms?

Thanks. Its funny because Im usually pretty on point with timing - 28 day cycle. But this time I felt as if I ovulated way in advance - like days after AF. which if that was the case, it puts me at about 2 weeks in if I am pregnant or about 2 weeks from AF. Can anyone help figure this out for me.

I think you will always have your period between 10 to 16 days following ovulation (Unless you're pregnant) I think that is a certainty. It's the gap between starting a cycle and ovulation which can fluctuate leading to irregular cycles. So if you ovulated very early then I guess yes you could well further along.
