HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Pregnancy tests are very accurate and have a very low falsely positive rate, so if the test stated that you are pregnant then more than likely this is the case. Congratulations.
Abdominal discomfort can occur in pregnancy, other symptoms would be fatigue, nausea, dizziness and breast tenderness. Some persons would feel none and others all of these symptoms.

If you experience cramping abdominal pain especially associated with bleeding then you should visit your doctor as soon as possible.
You would need to stop the caffeine and alcohol and start on vitamins especially folic acid (the baby will need this for development of the spinal cord).

I hope this helps

Hello and welcome to HCM.

It is indeed early, and there are also many chances of a false positive test. I recommend you repeat the urine pregnancy test and if it does return positive again, visit a doctor to confirm this.

I doubt coffee and alcohol can cause stomach cramps. It would also help to find out when your last sexual contact was. You could discuss this and more with your doctor once you visit him/her.

I hope this has helped. Feel free to write back to me for any further information.

Best wishes.
