Need an exam: At 5 weeks the pregnancy is very tiny. Your uterus is still normal size well hidden behind the pubic bone. A pain that high up on your abdomen is not going to be related to pregnancy. Schedule a visit to start your prenatal care and to have this pain evaluated.

Itchy belly button sign of pregnancy?

Itchy belly button sign of pregnancy?

Not at all: That is not a symptom of pregnancy. Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection.
