Ovulation or Pregnancy Symptoms?

So I'm not really "charting"my fertility signs again yet, just cervical mucus mainly. But I'm pretty sure I ovulated around the 25 to 29th of December. Well, about 3 days ago I noticed my legs were REALLY sore. Not just like sore muscles but a real deep kind of sore, especially around my knees and hips. It threw me off because I haven't felt this before. Also, my gums became really sore around the same time.

Any idea if this is ovulation related? My other thought was pregnancy symptoms (I had sex 24th Dec but the condom broke!). I wasn't really thinking anything of it until the other day it just all started adding up-- the sore legs, gums, and even heartburn. Hopefully I'm just paranoid because I just had my son 3 months ago.

I thought it was a little early too, but in my last pregnancy I started noticing symptoms around 7 or 8 dpo. Well today is CD 26 and my cervix is high and soft again and I had ewcm...which is really weird because I already had high soft cervix and ewcm around Christmas time. No idea what is going on with my body because I don't usually get anything but thick sticky cm before my period (sorry tmi).

Also, I still have the leg/joint pain and heartburn. I think if my period doesn't show by Friday I will test.

doesnt sound like ovulation symptoms.... I know people usually have cramping with ovulation... even if you were pregnant the symptoms that you describe dont sound right for how far along you would be.... my first symptoms all three times were fatiuge and boob pain before missed period... take a test if you misss your period since the condom broke so close to ovulation it is possible

wish you luck! :)
