    Hi Ann,

    The only way to know for sure you're pregnant is with a pregnancy test. But there are early symptoms of pregnancy that can alert you to the fact that you may be pregnant and should have a test.

    It sounds like you are having some pregnancy symptoms, so I'd suggest a HPT to settle your nerves. Take the test and let us know how it turns out!
