Also I tried having sex last night and I was in that much pain everytime the penis hit next to my left ovary I was in pain, but once we stopped it settled back down.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
The current symptoms (bloating, abdominal distention, abdominal tightness, increasing breast size & soreness, painful intercourse) that you describe could be suggestive of possibility of pregnancy. If pregnancy is suspected, look out for development of any other new symptoms and avoid any self medication. You should consider visiting your gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle. You may also consider taking a urine pregnancy test (on an early morning first urine sample) to see if you get positive results, or get it confirmed by a blood HCG test (avoid lot of fluid intake or caffeinated beverage intake in the previous night before the test).
Take care.
