Could I be pregnant?

This morning when I woke up I had what looked like a light period starting but I wasn't supposed to start for another week. I was wondering if maybe I was pregnant and spotting? My last period was Aug 12 and I was with my boyfriend on the 20th and 25th. The internet said I shouldve been ovulating around the 26th. What's the possibilities that I could be pregnant? I haven't had any other symptoms. Maybe it's just my eagerness for a kid.

I wouldnt get my hopes up too high yet. Sometimes you will spot but usually early pregnancy does not cause you to bleed early. If you are pregnant and spotting it is usually around the 7th week. I would just wait and see if you get your period or not. Are you trying to get pregnant? Or just hoping?

Both trying and hoping. The site I was on said spotting was 8-10 days after ovulation thats why I was wondering.

You could be, I had what they call an implantation bleed with my second child, this was the same day my period was due so about 7 days after I ovulated ( i ovulate a little later than "normal") it was more than spotting I actually thought it was my period until a few days later i realised i didnt feel right did a test and it was negative, then about a week after that I started being sick etc did another test and that was positive she is 3.5 years old now Id not go much by the ovulation counters on line every woman is different i ovulate a lot later than 14 days after my period my friend ovulates a lot earlier only about 6 days after her period all different good luck

Implantation can feel like a period is about to start. In 2007 I had a similar experience. I got pregnant with my toddler son in the August of that year. It is highly possible that you are pregnant. Good luck.

There is a possibility for you be pregnant if you are with your boyfriend one week after your menstruation. The number of safe days is 5-7 before and after your menstruation. Once you have date with your bf during fertile days and both of you enjoyed, the higher possibility for you to have a baby. Remember 5-7 days before and after your menstruation. This is one method of family planning among the listings. We used this method to avoid having another baby when we are not yet ready. In financial and physical. You really wanted to have a baby? Well try this method and there is a lot more...

As for me, I never had implant bleeding when I was pregnant, but I know a lot of people who have. Now, I'll definitely caution you now that there is no way of knowing if you are pregnant at this time because even though some of the pregnancy tests boast that you can find out earlier than the first day of your missed period, they aren't all accurate. My best suggestion to you would be to wait and see or if you are really curious you could go ahead and get an appointment with the doctor (but even that would probably take a couple weeks to get in).
