Possible: Pregnancy is certainly a possibility or your period could just be staring. Do a pregnancy test to be sure and if it is negative and your period still hasn't started repeat it in 3-5 days. Also be sure you are taking prenatal vitamins. You should start these any time you might get pregnant. You get maximal protection against birth defects if you are on them when you conceive. Good luck.
