Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The delayed periods, constipation, abdominal cramps, could be few early symptoms suggestive of pregnancy. If you had been sexually active without protection around ovulation time, chances of pregnancy are possible. Wait and watch for your periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you get abnormal periods, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet.
Take care.

Which is what I am going through right now and I am going crazy wanting a concrete answer. I took two tests this sat and both said negative, but as of today, I am 10 days late with sore nipples, nausea, headaches, light headed, cravings and food aversions.

pregnant?
Are you pregnant? Do you know yet? Because I am having the same problem. My period was due at the end of March, and it didn't come. I've been cramping and I'm constipated. I took 2 pee tests though, and they were both negative. I still think I'm pregnant though. I guess I'll just have to wait and see.

No, I am not. My period came on the 14th day from my missed period. I still have all the symptoms, but I don't believe that I am. My mom told me that some women still get their period in the first months of pregnancy.. but I just don't think that I am.

My period is a week late, but I've been having pregnancy symptoms. Five years ago I had a tubal done after my last child. My breasts hurt like they are engorged. I'm nauseated and have some cramping like I'm getting my period. This has been going on for two weeks. My period was supposed to come on May 17, 2013, but nothing until 4:30am this morning. When I got up to pee for the second time, there was some spotting. Could I be pregnant or my period is really late? Help me
