Could I be pregnant?

Over the last week I have been really nauseated and fruity smells make me sick, my back has been hurting me very badly and is stiff in the lower areas, I am very tired most of the time. Also, my stomach is beginning to become tighter in the lower area and I've been having sharp pains like severe cramps. Can any one help me or explain why I am having these symptoms?

And I started having morning sickness 3 weeks after possible conception, still without having the slightest clue that I was pregnant, I wasnt even trying to get pregnant, so I doubt it was my mind causing symptoms because it had NEVER even occured to me at all. Just saying :) It is possible. It can take up to 12 days tops for the fertilized egg to implant itself into the uterine lining, but the earliest it can happen is actually 3-4 days after conception, the earlier the egg implants, the earlier the HCg hormone starts to produce, hence, causing real symptoms.

haha! way to go aawm! my thoughts exactly. it amazes me how many people lack basic information! by far the dumbest question on here i have seen was, "is there any way to tell if my baby is of mixed race before it's born?" let's not forget the one that was recently posted, "if i smoke, i can't get pregnant, right?" where do these idiots come up with this crap?

No one on the internet is going to be able to tell you if you're pregnant with any certainty.  The best way to know is to take an OTC test, which you can purchase at any drug or grocery store.  The results are usually pretty accurate, but if you'd like more confirmation, contact your doctor and request a blood test, which will be able to decisively say if you're pregnant or not.  Good luck.

If it's been 28 days since your last period, and that's your usual cycle, it's not too early to take a pregnancy test.  (Generally, you can take a test and get a reliable result as soon as you've missed your period.)  If you take one of the OTC tests and you don't trust the answer, you can go to your doctor and have them administer a blood test, which will give you a definitive answer.  (If you don't want to go to your regular doctor, I highly recommend Planned Parenthood, which can give you the test and then counsel you on your options, to include parenting or adoption - PP isn't just about abortion.)  Mom moment here: please take this as a warning bell, and while you're at the doctor, talk to them about protection.  You should be able to get a presecription for most contraceptives at age 18 without a parent's permission.  If you plan on having sex again and you do NOT want a baby, please do this as soon as possible.
