Me and my boyfriend have been trying to conceive. My last period (tmi) was on April 19. It Last about 6 days. And for the past two weeks we been trying and couple days ago I've been cramping even though my period is due next week. My lower abdomen been aching and I've been feeling twinges in my pelvic area an I feel little pinch around my ovarie area. When I lay down or sit it hurt kind of like if I'm on my period. I've been getting lot off headaches, Nauseou, and I feel so tired and weak. Am I prego?? I want to take a test but if its negative I might get discourage... Anybody had the same symptoms and became pregnant? I hope I am???

Thank you.
But I'm still wondering, you think it's possible that I am pregnant ? With all the symptoms I'm getting ?

You might as well toss a coin in the air. Even if you are pregnant, it is so early that you would not even have any symptoms.

Hello Anonymous,

I understand your eagerness to know if you are pregnant or not, since you have been trying to conceive. A positive pregnancy test rather than symptoms gives you a certain answer, especially this early.

During pregnancy, your body, the placenta actually, secretes a hormone called hCG. Levels of hCG can be detected by a blood test as early as 11 days after conception and about 12 to 14 days after conception by a urine test.

Since your period is due next week, I suggest you wait. If your period is late beyond one week, take a pregnancy test. Read and follow the directions carefully to get the most accurate results.

Wishing you a positive test!
