Pregnant possibilty? I am due the first of the month every month and my husband and I had unprotected sex on the 11th, 16th and 20th. I think my ovulation date is the 19th. I am feeling extremely tired lately, moody , a bit of cramping here and there, bloated and have had some extreme hunger. Thoughts?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you had been sexually active after last periods and during your fertile days/ovulation time, chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out completely. The symptoms that you describe (extreme tiredness, mood changes, abdominal cramps, bloating, extreme hunger/increased appetite) could be suggestive of possibility of pregnancy. If you suspect chances of pregnancy, look out for development of any new symptoms. Consider visiting your gynecologist/obstetrician 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). Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle. Be in regular follow-up and monitoring of your treating gynecologist/obstetrician and report any unusual/abnormal/new symptoms immediately.
Take care.
