What are the symptoms of pregnancy?

I think I may be pregnant- me (21) and my fiance (31) have been trying for about 9 months. I am now on my 6th day late and I have only ever been late once and that was 2 days, I am usually fairly regular with a 29 day cycle but I come on early by a few days often so this is definately a bit far out. I m having a bit of trouble differentiating period symptoms to possible pregnancy symptoms... Other than being late I have tender breasts which look as if though they ve grown a little, sensitivity to smells and lower back ache which feels as if though it s a little in my hips, I find it hard to get out of bed in the mornings and yet getting really tired during the day and feeling spaced out , a little dizzy at times and not exactly sicky but a tad queasy. I also thought I was experiencing mild menstrual cramps yesterday but I hadn t been able to poo in about 4 days but managed a bit today and it has stopped. Additionally I had spotting about 5 days prior to my due on date and am experiencing a lot of odourless, white-ish thin discharge which is nothing I have had before. Could this be pregnancy? I would like to have a good idea as to whether it is or not before getting a test. Thanks a lot!

Hello dear,
I understand your concern.
In my opinion the symptoms like tiredness,morning sickness,tender breasts suggest pregnancy.
But confirmation is possible only after doing a urine pregnancy test.
Usually the pregnancy test gives accurate results a week after missed period.
Delayed period in a regularly menstruating woman gives a suspicion of pregnancy first of any thing.
So the pregnancy should be diagnosed by testing.
The spotting a week before the due date might suggest implantation bleeding.

Though all your symptoms go in favour of pregnancy the confirmation is possible only after the investigations like urine pregnancy test and ultrasound.

So I would like you to do urine pregnancy test.
Hope this helps.
Best regards...Dr.Srilatha
