Well I used the ovulater calendar to see what was my most fertile days... I also got the tips to let me know what I will feel like when I'm ovulating...I had the lower abdominal pains (Cramping feeling) & the mucus discharge it was on the 5th of this month. So we had sex immediately! What I'm bascily asking is how early would I know wether or ot I'm pregnant & what are some early sighs to let me know?

Hi Anonymous, 

You may have been ovulating but it may be a better idea to calculate when you ovulate based on recording your cycles every month and then having sex every other day that week as opposed to waiting until the discharge and cramping start. Usually you want to have sex before this happens (sperm survives inside the body for up to 5 days) making conception a higher possibility. 

With that being said, conception is still possible and if you had sex on the 5th then you want to give it 2 weeks before you test for pregnancy. Early pregnancy symptoms are found here: http://www.empowher.com/pregnancy/content/early-pregnancy-symptoms-and-causes

Hope this helps and good luck trying to conceive!
