Pelvic Pressure: Early Pregnancy Symptom?

Hello all, I'm 23 and this past month I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend. First day of my last period was September 24th and we had sex twice ... first around I think the 5th or 6th of October and then the 9th. My period hasn't always been regular, but it had recently (for the past 4-5 months) been on time. It is apparently MIA and I've had this weird pressure in my lower abdominal area. Think around underneath the belly button ... like below there, but above the private area. Anyway, it isn't painful and just feels as though someone put a little balloon up inside me and aired it up enough to where I can feel it on the inside. I was thinking it was way too early to be a sign of pregnancy, though ... and since then I've been a bit scared. I was waiting until tomorrow or Saturday to take a HPT. However, I've read a lot about women getting negatives and turning out to be pregnant after all either from taking the test too early or having low hormone levels in general. So ... should I test this week and do one next week as well if it comes out negative or just head to the doctor for better accuracy?

The trick to this whole thing is ... my boyfriend claims he didn't ejaculate inside me and that he hadn't ejaculated within the past few days prior to having sex (for either of the occasions). How accurate is it to say that pre-cum will contain absolutely no sperm if you haven't ejaculated within a few days? Or ... is it still possible to get pregnant from just that? We've had a lot of issues discussing this, but really I guess there's no point until I test and find out something for sure.

I found out I won't be able to get to the doctor until tomorrow (if I'm lucky and transportation doesn't bail on me) or next week. I'm really beginning to worry ... the pressure below my belly button/above the private area is still there. However, my skin feels really hot/feverish. I don't have a temperature though via oral thermometer. I've been keeping an eye on those kinds of things anyway because my mother just got over having signs of the flu. Anyway ... can anyone help me out here? Do these sound like normal early pregnancy symptoms? I'm just ... I'm to the point that mentally I'm wore out by my boyfriend's accusations. Saying that it's probably in my mind ... but I know this weird pressure is there and that I've never had it before. I just wish someone would listen to me. Sad
