a couple days late and sensitive to smell - Am I pregnant?

I had a miscarriage on November 4, I had my first period on December 6th. Today I am officially at day 31 with no signs of AF. Prior to my MC my cycle was between 28 and 30 days on my average cycle.
Starting 2 days ago, my sensitivity to smells has gone crazy. This morning I gagged every time I walked through my kitchen. Went to work was fine then picked up some mexican for lunch and could barely eat it (didn't finish) because the smell was throwing me off so much. Tonight walked through my kitchen again and kept telling my husband it smelt bad but he smelt nothing. Then he was eating chicken noodle soup and I could barely sit next to him. My dinner of chicken smelt off but not bad but tasted funny. My husband once again said it smelt fine.

Since I'm only a couple days late I don't want to get my hopes up or anything.

When I was pregnant over the fall my breasts were extremely sore and I didn't have a sensitive nose but I did have slight cramping. Tonight I did have a couple slight twinges in my ovary areas (both sides) but only for a moment. Is it AF coming or am I pregnant.

Nervous to take a test to get bad news...

To follow up, I have taken a test and it was negative (I used first morning urine). I woke up in the middle of the night having to pee (rarely do that). This morning I was nauseas but it went away by the time I got to work.
I have noticed a lot of creamy white discharge over the last couple of days, today included.

Pregnant or just my body being crazy? I know if you test too soon it may not show up but I am about 5 days late now (well 3-5 days late since my cycle can vary by 2 days sometimes).

You can usually trust in the home pregnant test results once you have missed your period, but it is a good idea to take another test to confirm, as sometimes there could be user error.

Please let us know how you are doing!
