I am 5-6 weeks pregnant and want to know when symtoms will start.

Also, is it possible that a blood test could be wrong about how far one is pregnant?

It is exactly 5weeks and 1 day from the 1st day of my last period. I have taken 3 pregnancy tests (urine) , all negative! Last test taken last night. Unfortunately I can't get to a doctor this week for blood tests and I'm really curious to know whether I'm pregnant. With my first two pregnancies the urine tests showed positive at 4w3d.

I am also 5 weeks pregnant and the only symptoms I have had were the cramping - almost like period pain , and sore breasts and nipples. I have not had ANY other symptoms , but I have read that many of the other things such as tiredness , nausea etc only start from about 7 weeks.

According to my knowledge , a blood test is the most accurate. I also had a blood test done. Calculate from the first day of your last menstrual period - that is how they work out how many weeks you are.
