Hi and welcome to HCM

I think you are very much keen to become pregnant, but you have to wait till your next period to confirm. After 4 days if your period wont return then take take a home pregnancy test. Its better if you wait for atleast 1 week after missed period to take test and if you are pregnant possibility of positive results are high.

Use early morning urine sample for test.

Some symptoms of pregnancy are

1.Spotting and Cramping
2.Breast changes are another very early sign of pregnancy. breasts may become swollen, sore, or tingly a week or two later.
3.Morning sickness is a famous symptom of pregnancy. But not every pregnant woman gets it.
4.Fatigue: Feeling very tired is normal in pregnancy, starting early on
5.Headaches and back pain. Many pregnant women report frequent mild headaches,
6.Frequent urination

Some of your symptoms suggest pregnancy, but not always. Its better to take home pregnancy test after a missed period to confirm

Regards
Dr Santosh
