Alright, Im a little confused. If you want to know my whole story, I have a topic posted in the Teen Pregnancy forum titled Pregnancy Scare. I thought I was in the clear but I was reading around out of curiousity and saw something about cramping during pregnancy.

Alright, I ALWAYS cramp during PMS. Everytime. But its not usually this bad or this long. My boobs hurt a little, but I've been so worried about it that I have handled them a lot, and roughly, trying to figure out if Im having any unusual pain. To the point that Im wondering if Ive overreacted and actually caused more pain. I tested this morning and got a negative result.

So, my question is - if by some chance I WERE pregnant - if Im far enough a long to have sore breasts and cramping, shouldnt I be far enough along to have a positive pregnancy test?

Thats sort of what Im getting out of some of my reading, but I am very confused. Someone please clarify for me!

I think what your asking is if your far along enough to have symptoms are you far along enough to test positive? The answer is yes. If your symptoms are caused by HCG (only produced in pregnancy) a test will certainly be able to tell

Yea, thats what I was asking. I tested negative twice, so I guess this is probably just PMS. Thank you!

The first real symptom of pregnancy is almost always a missed period. Your hormones have to be at a certain point before they really start messing with your body as far as nausea and sore breasts are concerned, and by that point your period is already a no-show.
