  • I'm now 5days late from my missed period. I've been having cramping sensations on the right side of my abdomen sometimes heavy sometimes light. My boobs don't hurt. I may get a sharp pain in them throughout the day but that's it. I feel really tired on and off. But that's it. I normally have a 28-31 day period and I've never had a missed period. I'm starting to have bowel movements frequently throughout the day and I normally go a few days without having one. Could these be some signs of pregnancy? On Friday august 2, 2013 i will be a week late if I don't get my period. Have have a doctors appointment on the 6th but should I still test before I go? Please give me some insight. I'm only 20 and this is my first time missing a period.

  • Thank you! I was told to always test in the morning? Is it also good to test when I start having the cramping feeling? Maybe my hcg has risen by that time.
