Very light spotting and nausea

User Profile

My husband and I got married on May 30, 2009. He's 30, I'm 19. We have never used any type of contraception we just skipped my ovulation days. This month we weren't paying attention and had sex on the 5th, 8th, and 9th of October. I ovulated on the 8th.. I know for sure because I noticed a little Ov. spotting. My period is due today, the 23rd, but all I've been doing is spotting light brown since the 21st. It's not even enough to get on a pad. I just notice it on toilet paper. I'm starting to wonder if I'm pregnant because I've been feeling Nauseous on and off for about a week now and today I felt really nauseous for a few minutes. I've also been really gasy, feeling lower tummy cramps but never starting my period. Isn't it too early for me to have symptoms even if I am pregnant? Also.. I am 34 days on the dot. I don't spot before and I definitely don't run light/spot during.

You like to know whether you could be pregnant or not.

During pregnancy, most women experience nausea, vomiting at the beginning of the pregnancy in the first trimester. The severity of these symptoms is different for each woman. Symptoms of pregnancy like nausea and vomiting don’t show up the very next day or week after woman becomes pregnant. In fact, subjective symptoms like nausea and lower tummy cramps can exist in other conditions and may be symptoms of another underlying medical condition, such as infection.

From the data that you provided about the day of ovulation and the days during which you had an intercourse... there is a possibility that you might be pregnant. You might consider taking a pregnancy test two weeks after estimated ovulation. Any pregnancy test earlier than this will be inaccurate.
