You wouldn't really be feeling any of the things you're experiencing from pregnancy yet. I don't doubt that you're feeling them, but they wouldn't be caused by a pregnancy this early on. I only say that because your body isn't making enough of the hormone (the same hormone that triggers a positive on a pregnancy test) to effect you in such a way.

Wait until you miss your period, and then take a test. It should be accurate then.

wait a week then take another test

iyt could be just an irregullar period because like ayamayaki said its wayy to early to be feeling anything that has to do with pregnancy

stress can cause a missed or delayed period as well

That is funny I had the same symptoms around the same time and I was pregnant. Interesting. Since it was my first I just thought it was the flu, but nah, a bundle of joy. Everyone is not the same.

Symptoms are caused by a variety of things other than pregnancy. You'd be surprised how often you feel slightly nauseous during the day. Most of the time you simply ignore it. But thinking you might be pregnant makes you notice every little thing about your body. All of a sudden you're peeing all day long! And wow, my boobs are a little bit tender! And my back hurts! And I think my teeth are a bit whiter today too. Look at all these symptoms!

Pregnancy symptoms are caused by pregnancy hormones. Those hormones are not concentrated enough to cause symptoms so early on, because your body barely even knows it's pregnant yet. When your hormones are concentrated enough to stop your period and cause symptoms (most of which don't start until 6+ weeks of pregnancy, if you get any at all) a pregnancy test will be positive. It takes a much lower concentration of hormone to trigger a positive test than it does to cause symptoms.

OK how about this. My last period was On April 20/21 I had sex protected on may 2o the day before my period. I did not have a may period at all. Took a pregnacy test 4/5days late it shows positive. So why didnt i get a may period if i had sex the day before? I think the morning sickness was starting a week to a few days later. maybe about 2 weeks in passed a quatersized brownish red clot. was having a lot of back pain and pains in my lower stomach switching sides.maybe a week or after that started spotting then bled of 6 to 7 days the amount of blood chould fill up a half of a pad. At the same time she has been starving herself enuff to loose inches off her.I know its normal to loose weigh but that is not normal. as more time passes.Have more energy to do what ever i want. but still dont eat much and walks miles a day. tell me what you think about all this
