See your doctor: Pelvic pain and pressure can be from many different sources. Bladder problems, gynecological problems, muscle and nerve problems, and gastrointestinal problems can all cause similar symptoms. It's very important that you report these symptoms to your physician so that they can be evaluated properly.

Yes: If the pregnancy test was positive then you are pregnant. You should consult an OB/gyn doctor as soon as possible.

Ultrasound?: Have you had an ultrasound to rule out an ectopic pregnancy? So long as the pregnancy is in the correct location (in the uterine cavity), many pregnant women will describe what you are feeling and it doesn't necessarily mean that there is a problem. HOWEVER, you need to have an ultrasound to make sure that the pregnancy is in the correct position because an ectopic pregnancy can be very dangerous
