How soon

I suspect that I could be pregnant. I am experiencing heartburn, going to the loo frequently, being super emotional and in tears for no reason and have cravings for chocolates and sweet things. My last period was 3 weeks (23 days) ago. How soon can one start experiencing "first signs" of pregnancy. Is it to soon for me to be experiencing these signs and could it be because of other causes.

Could be pregnancy or pre-menstrual tension

Buy a hpt and if it is negative go for a blood test by friday. i did a hpt two day before my period and did a blood test two days before my period and both were positive. Some hpt tell you that it can detect a pregnancy as early as 10 days after you conceived.

Never mind, anycase you should wait till you skipped for it to be 100% accurate. But sometimes they say it just depends, sometimes it can pick it up. You got nothing to loose do one and if it is negative just wait for your period then.

Good luck

Thanks for the reply

Sorry Miena, I am a different Cloe. I heard that a HPT will only show positive once you have missed a period, so should I not wait or will it be accurate?
