Can you get pregnant if you don't take birth control for one week during ovulation?

Can you get pregnant if you were on Birth Control the prior month, but once finished with that pack you didn't take the next months pack for an entire week AND during that entire week you had unprotected sex and also were ovulating? BUT I took my next months first pill the day of ovulation?

(this truly was an accident as I had just moved and was waiting on my birth control to be mailed to my new location)
