So I was wondering if I could be pregnant as well it seems we are going through the exact same thing My husband and I are trying for our second child and I just stopped taking the pill on June 26th and I had my period on the 29th. Since I like to be on top of things I used ovulation tests to figure out my cycle and timed intercourse. Now its the 22nd and I have started to bleed is this just implantation bleeding (pregnancy test came out negative though) or has the birth control just whacked out my system a bit. I truly thought I was pregnant same symptoms and everything sore boobs, wet below, bloated etc. I also did a little net research and it seems that even though you may ovulate right after going off the pill one's womb may still be in inhospitable conditions from the pill. Oh and I am trying the Shettles method for a boy...the book How to Choose the sex of your baby is great I am trying for a boy but for a girl you are suppose to have sex 24 hours before your LH surge or 48 hours before ovulation which for the average 28 day cycle is day 11/12 he claims this is over 80% effective but he also wants you to chart basal body temperature, cervial mucus etc.
