Has anyone conceived on the day AF ended?

Because I thought it was impossible, but I'm feeling reaaaaaaally preggers right now.

The only time we didn't use protection was the day AF ended. That was... um... the 5th? Or 9th? I can't remember. I do usually ovulate very early in my cycle, and sometimes I swear I'm ovulating twice?? Maybe since I turned 30 my body decided to double the effort to get knocked up LOL.

Anyway, my boobs started hurting a week ago, and when I put on my bra three days ago I thought, that's weird... they're bigger! And I didn't gain any weight, in fact I've been running a lot lately. Then yesterday and today, I have had parts of the day where I am SO exhausted-- I fell asleep accidentally both days. I've never done that when not in my first trimester, and I've been getting plenty of sleep.

I took a test yesterday, and it was negative, though the morning after there was a reaaaaaally faint line that may have been evap. I should have kept it, but I tossed it thinking I was just imagining things. Then I felt that overwhelming exhaustion again today and passed out when my toddler went down for a nap.

So what do you think? Is it even possible? And if not, what in the world is wrong with me?? I've been on prenatals just in case, and I've been eating lots of spinach so it can't be anemia... ideas?

Well we either got pregnant on the last day of my period or we had a condom fail that we didn't know about. We aren't really sure, but we are truly blessed by our precious addition who is 7mo old already!

Congrats if you are unexpectedly expecting!

Thanks mama, I would be *so* excited, but I don't want to get my hopes up!

well, assuming you have a 5 day period, you could ovulate as late as CD 10 and still be pregnant. That wouldn't be unheard of at all.

Re: Has anyone conceived on the day AF ended?

Well now you guys have me all excited! I'm going to go grab another test today. (thank you dollar store). DH and I have been deadlocked in the "are we having a fourth baby" debate, so I'm really hoping it just happened on accident so we don't have to discuss it anymore! lol

I'll update If I get an answer. We've only gotten pregnant accidentally once, and it ended in my only miscarriage, so I'm just as nervous as I am excited.
