light headed, nausea, burping, knee pains, back pain, cramping. Blue veins on chest, breast, arms. Pregnant?

I'm sometimes get light headed, feeling nauseous and burp a lot, which sometimes cause the vomit tasting thick spit to come out. Have noticeable mild knee pains, light constant headaches, mild backaches, & mild cramping. Also notice blue veins on chest, breast, arms, thighs, & legs (I'm a black women might I add) Had a period that was one day late but only lasted the 4 days compared to the normal 6-7 days. It was also kinda heavy. Could I be pregnant? If not what could this be?

Thanks for posting your query on healthcare magic.

Your symptoms are suggestive of pregnancy but not confirmatory.
Causes of ]irregular periods include thyroid problem, stress, ovarian cyst, pregnancy.
I recommend her to get a urine pregnancy test once she misses her periods. Transvaginal scan is confirmatory of pregnancy.
Transvaginal scan also helps in detecting other causes of missed periods like ovarian cyst.

Hope this helps.
