What do I do?!

My last period was July 28th, and my next is in six days.. I am not on any type of birthcontrol, but my boyfriend uses a condom. Wellll, except for when we're in the shower, he pulls out before he ejaculates. Usually I'm not too worried about becoming pregnant, which yes I know is ignorant. Buuut...

Lately, I've been having less than normal symptoms. Fatigue, backaches, mood swings, and cramps. Not only am I concerned if I am pregnant, but I am also concerned because I have become okay with it. If I am pregnant I will be happy. If not, I don't know how I will feel. I certainly did not plan on potentially becoming pregnant, but now I kinda hope I am.

What do I do? How would I tell my boyfriend? and How will he react? How will I feel if I am, or if I'm not?

To know right now, you can have a blood or urine test done. Testing checks hCG levels. This hormone is produced during pregnancy. Levels can first be detected by a blood test about 11 days after conception and about 12 - 14 days after conception by a urine test. I am not referring to a home pregnancy test, that you must wait until you are late by one week. A blood or urine pregnancy test is a laboratory test. The blood sample is drawn in your doctor's office or health clinic.
Anything to help you get pregnant---continue to have unprotected sex.

The first thing to do is wait and see if you get your period. If you don't get your period, wait a week and take a home pregnancy test. Try to relax because stress can cause a period to be late. I cannot tell you how you will feel, whether you are pregnant or not. Only you know how you feel.

Am I able to take a pregnancy test now? The suspense is killing me! Also, if I am not, do you know anything that can help me get pregnant?
