That is great to be so in-tune with your body, and know when you ovulated!

Since you are TTC, and you have had three children, the symptoms you are experiencing could be the beginning of an early pregnancy, as the 10-14 days past ovulation (for implantation to occur) is just a range, and it is conceivable that a fertilized egg could implant after 8 days. There would not be enough "pregnancy hormone" to result in a positive pregnancy test at this point, but perhaps enough to cause some symptoms.

Please know the symptoms you are experiencing could also be an early upcoming period; it is difficult to know at this point.

Will you take a pregnancy test next week, and let us know the results?

I am curious how you know exactly when you ovulated? Are you tracking your ovulation for any reason (to try to conceive, for example), or are you assuming you ovulated on a particular day (for instance, women assume the ovulate on "day 14" of their period, because that is the exact middle of their cycle in a 28-day cycle). Some women do have slight pain during ovulation, and know exactly when they ovulate because of this symptom, however, most women do not have symptoms during ovulation.

Your symptoms could be related to many different things, depending on your circumstances. Of course nausea can be related to pregnancy (I assume this is your primary concern), upcoming period, upset stomach or other GI issue. Sore breasts can be related to pregnancy, upcoming period, change in hormones, overall ill/sickness from virus (like the cold or flu can create body aches).

If you are concerned about pregnancy, are you having unprotected sex? Women do not have early pregnancy symptoms until they have missed a period, as it takes about 10-14 days after ovulation for a women to even become pregnant (it takes this long for egg to be fertilized, travel from fallopian tubes to uterus, then find a place to implant in uterine lining). This 10-14 day period does not lead to symptoms; it is only after the fertilized egg is implanted that the body starts releasing the "pregnancy hormones" that can lead to pregnancy-related symptoms.

If your symptoms become more severe, please call your doctor. Otherwise, are you wondering if you are pregnant or are you concerned about another condition?
