Hi Honey, here are some symptoms of pregnancy, check them and then see your doctor
Tender, swollen breasts
One of the early signs of pregnancy is sensitive, sore breasts caused by increasing levels of hormones. The soreness may feel like an exaggerated version of how your breasts feel before your period. Your discomfort should diminish significantly after the first trimester, as your body adjusts to the hormonal changes.
Feeling tired all of a sudden? No, make that exhausted. No one knows for sure what causes early pregnancy fatigue, but it's possible that rapidly increasing levels of the hormone progesterone are contributing to your sleepiness.
You should start to feel more energetic once you hit your second trimester, although fatigue usually returns late in pregnancy when you're carrying around a lot more weight and some of the common discomforts of pregnancy make it more difficult to get a good night's sleep
Nausea or vomiting
If you're like most women, morning sickness won't hit until about a month after conception. (A lucky few escape it altogether.) But some women do start to feel queasy a bit earlier. And not just in the morning, either — pregnancy-related nausea and vomiting can be a problem morning, noon, or night.
About half of women with nausea feel complete relief by the beginning of the second trimester. For most others it takes another month or so for the queasiness to ease up.
Increased sensitivity to odors
If you're newly pregnant, it's not uncommon to feel repelled by the smell of a bologna sandwich or cup of coffee and for certain aromas to trigger your gag reflex. Though no one knows for sure, this may be a side effect of rapidly increasing amounts of estrogen in your system. You may also find that certain foods you used to enjoy are suddenly completely repulsive to you.
Hormonal changes in early pregnancy may leave you feeling bloated, similar to the feeling some women have just before their period arrives. That's why your clothes may feel snugger than usual at the waistline, even early on when your uterus is still quite small.
Shortly after you become pregnant, you may find yourself hurrying to the bathroom all the time. Why? Mostly because during pregnancy the amount of blood and other fluids in your body increases, which leads to extra fluid being processed by your kidneys and ending up in your bladder.
This symptom may start as early as six weeks into your first trimester and continue or worsen as your pregnancy progresses and your growing baby exerts more pressure on your bladder.
A missed period
If you're usually pretty regular and your period doesn't arrive on time, you'll probably take a pregnancy test long before you notice any of the above symptoms. But if you're not regular or you're not keeping track of your cycle, nausea and breast tenderness and extra trips to the bathroom may signal pregnancy before you realize you didn't get your period.
Your basal body temperature stays high
If you've been charting your basal body temperature and you see that your temperature has stayed elevated for 18 days in a row, you're probably pregnant

Ovulation generally occurs half way through your cycle. If your cycle is 28 days from the beginning of one period to the beginning of the next then your most fertile time would be on day day 14. Sperm (especially the female sperm) can last up to 48 hours which would mean that your feterlity time would be anywhere from day 12 to day 16. In your case you had unprotected sex on day 12. Some women's cycles are longer and some are shorter but it is that midway point that is the most fertile point. ANYTIME you have unprotected sex thought you are at risk for a pregnancy. Women have been known to even get pregnant during their period. The best time to take a pregnancy test is the first day after your missed period and it is best to use the first voided urine of the day. My advice to you is that if you do not want to be pregnant then you need to be more responsible and take precautions EVERY time. Otherwise take the consequenses of your actions. If you are pregnant though and do not want to be I will take your baby gladly.

How soon can I test? Well, first you gotta know how the test works. Briefly: the home pregnancy test (HPT) works by detecting a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG.) When an egg is fertilized, it takes about 6 to 12 days to implant in the uterus, and then it begins to secrete hCG. It takes another day or two for enough hCG to build up and make its way into your pee. So, generally speaking, the earliest you can expect a positive HPT is 8 days past ovulation ("DPO") and the latest would be about 16 DPO. It is possible to get a positive test earlier or later, but not as common. In my experience, if you use a sensitive "early" test (anything that detects 25 mIU/mL of hCG or less) you can test around 12-14 DPO and feel reasonably secure with your results (the later you test, the more secure you can feel in its accuracy.)
If you do not chart or monitor your fertility in any way, and you think you may have conceived, you should wait 19 days (or longer) after having sex to test. Why 19?! Sperm can live approximately 5 days in the proper environment; if the sperm managed to live until you popped an egg, the actual conception could have taken place several days after the sex act that got the sperm there. To make sure you're not testing too early, assume the sperm had very long lives (5 days is considered a very long sperm life) and that conception occurred then. Then allow 14 days for the embryo to implant and develop enough hCG to show up on a pregnancy test (96% of pregnant women will test positive by then.)
Note: some HPT's say "test 5 days before your period is due!" or some such thing. Please note they are assuming a textbook 28-day cycle, with ovulation on Day 14. "5 days before your period is due" thus really "translates" to 10 DPO.
Essentially, you should remember that your high school biology textbook was WRONG. NOT all women have 28-day cycles and NOT all women ovulate on Day 14. For more info on this type of thing, see the Fertility Info section.
Here's an example. This is the textbook-perfect 28-day cycle with ovulation occurring on day 14 (in pink.) 10 DPO and later are reasonable days for testing (in green.) This is the cycle the HPT companies have in mind when they say "test 5 days before your period is due!"
Well, not everyone's body works this way. Here's another 28-day cycle-- but this one has ovulation occurring a little bit later, still well within the normal range. Watch what happens to your (green) testing opportunities!
All of a sudden, "5 days before your period is due!" is way too early for you to expect a positive test! (I tend to ovulate later myself, so by the time the "gold standard" of testing at 14 DPO is applicable, my period is already 3 days late! I needed to use an "early detection" test on the first day of my missed period. A "regular" test would probably have been negative-- even though my daughter is living proof that I was, indeed, pregnant ;)
Of course, it works in reverse, too. If you're an early ovulator, you're lucky! Check it out:
In this scenario, you could test even sooner than 5 days before your expected period.
Ultimately, it's important to remember that implantation is a variable thing. You may be able to detect a pregnancy very early on, but then again, you may not! If you can't, don't despair.

I would suggest waiting until you actually miss a period before you take a test. Cramping could be a sign of your period coming (or a lot of different things) so don't count on this meaning anything regarding a pregnancy. Just wait and see whether or not you actually do start on time. Good luck!

You could be pregnant. You did it the right time, but a test will not be possitive until at least I would say January 8th based on a 28 day cycle. Cramps are a sign, but they are also not a sign as well. Hope you get the result you want.

Since you know when your last period started you should have some idea of when your next one should start. Wait until 4 weeks have passed and if your period doesn't start take a test.

You would of been ovulating at that time, so yes you could be pregnant. I would wait until you miss your period to test. Before then you could get neg results and discourage yourself. I know it's hard to wait, but it's better than wasting all your money on tests!

You could always that window of opportunity but you could be just worrying yourself to death over the situation just relax sometimes you can make your body believe you are prego just relax take it one day at a time or just take a test but i would wait till the middle of next month

it is possible for you to be pregnant. Do not test until January 10 for accurate results. It is too early to test right now.

wait till you miss your period to take a preg. test. the cramps could be gas for what you ate. Stop stressing. Stressing can cause your body to miss your period for a couple days or so. trust me.
