I really have no " real"  reason to think I am pregnant... I''ve just been having this " feeling"  for about a week now! I am on the pill (I rarely forget them, but I did skip one or 2 right after my period, which started 2 weeks ago). Lately I''ve been having headaches and experienced some lower back pain which I am not used to, one or 2 other symptoms include slight nausea (started today) and heartburn (which I am actually used to from time to time).

My question is this - can I take a pregnancy test now already or shoud I still wait a week or 2 to see if I get my period or not - it has always been quite regular?

You have to wait two weeks to see if your period comes before testing.
