Pregnant?: Yes. You should do a pregnancy test to find out for sure. Any urinary symptoms? Does the pain radiate anywhere?

Pregnancy test: Most home pregnancy tests will become positive 2 weeks after implantation. Thus, if you are 7 days late a home pregnancy urine test should show up positive. If you are experiencing other symptoms please see your doctor.
