In brief: Possible

The Progesterone level starts to increase after ovulation and continues to rise as a result of conception.
Progesterone can make the nipples very sensitive - this sensitivity is ususally noticeable just before a woman's period is due. If she conceives, the sensitivity can worsen during the first weeks of pregnancy.

In brief: Can, but

Breast tenderness can be a sign of pregnancy, or that your cycle is about to start.
Implantation occurs approximately 6-10 days after ovulation.
