acne, constipation, cramping but no period.. could i be pregnant

This month i noticed that my nipples were standing out more than they ever have, that i have gotten acne on my face as well as my breasts and back which has NEVER happened before, was to start my period and haven't, was having slight cramping for the last six days that was coming and going and today it has been just fine and i have been experiencing constipation pretty Badly. Also on this scale is being more hungry than usual as well as all of a sudden getting a stuffy nose while extremely nice out. These signs of pregnancy? When should i test? This would be a planned pregnancy so i have been trying not to get my hopes up too high because i dont want to just psych myself out, and i have tried making every excuse under the sun but all of these things are making that difficult for me. Any thoughts?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms of sensitive nipples, acne, delayed periods, abdominal cramps, constipation, increased hunger/appetite, stuffy nose etc., could be few of early symptoms suggestive of pregnancy. Wait and watch for your periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If periods have not started within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you have got 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 and lifestyle.
Take care.
