Question: It's been a week since I missed my period.My husband and I had unprotected intercourse a couple of times this month,however it was not around the fertile days.

I have mild cramps in stomach and pelvic area and tiredness from 3 days.
I took the home pregnancy test today,there are 2 lines that appeared however the test line is lighter in colour.

Am I pregnant?
