Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

and by the 17th i mean that was the last day. sorry
Ok well if you got pregnant then you would be 2 weeks and 4 days pregnant.  The biggest tell tale sign that you are is the missing of your next period (usually).  Others would be tender breasts and nausea.  But your best bet is to just get a home pregnancy test and see if you are.  Sometimes you can get an early reading from those tests.  If it says negative don't worry because it could just mean your hormones haven't changed enough yet.  I would then wait to miss your next period and take another one.  I hope that you are because you want to be so badly.  I hope this has helped.
You can count the weeks from the first day of your last period. So let's say you started on the 13th (since you said the 17th was your last day), today you would be 3 weeks along. I knew at 3 weeks because I just felt funny. I kept getting dizzy which is a common early symptom because a lot of your blood is being re-routed to your uterus. At 3 weeks I was also able to get a faint positive on an early results pregnancy test. Take it first thing in the morning and get the one that has the lines....not the digital one. If you see even a hint of a second line....it's a positive. And it's usually more common to get a false negative than a false positive. Good luck!
Hang in there a few more days and you will have missed your period, more than likely, if you are. I just knew before I even found out with my second pregnancy because of fatigue, breast tenderness and nausea. I took a test when I was two days late. With the first it was a shocking surprise. You know your body better than anyone else. If your instincts tell you that you are, then you probably are. I would wait until after your missed period to take a test just to not get your hopes up so much. Good luck!
