it is WAY TOO EARLY for anything to show up. She's probably nauseous from her thinking she's pregnant and not knowing how to handle it. If her period is pretty regular and over 28 days (from period start to period start) chances are pretty good she's not. But from here, it's just a waiting game. If she misses her next period, test. All you can do is wait, easier said than done I know, but that's all you can do at this point. Good Luck.

like Lilly Ivy said shes probably tired and nauseous from worrying if she is pregnant.
If she is pregnant, there are 2 options if you both feel your too young for a baby.
1-abortion,
2-adoption. you could give the child to a family who wants a child
and you two would not have to raise this baby.
You and your girlfriend have to be honest about this with her mother, she should know, because then she could get your gf on Birth control, and help you both come up with a sollution.

Plan B is good up to 72 hours. If it has not been 72 hours yet, look into it. Then look into birth control.

shes probably stressed out and thinking she is pregnant still.
if it hasnt come yet, tell her to go to the doctors and tell them she has not gotten her period yet.

it might come now that you've taken the test.
I know with me everytime my period is late and I get stressed out I just take a test and my period usually ends up arriving within a few hours.It's such a waste of money but for me stress keeps me from having my period,and the test helps me accept that I'm not pregnant and then I de stress and my period starts.
