Hard to guess: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms.

Not good indication: The bumps you have around your nipple are little glands and can come up from rubbing of the nipple or increased dryness of the nipple and with hormonal change. If you have reason to believe you are pregnant you should get a good over the counter test kit. The most common nipple change with pregnancy is the nipple and surrounding area gets darker. Nipple alone not a good indicator of pregnancy.
