2 days late. Negative test. Mild cramping and nausea at same time each day. When should pregnancy be detected?

2 days late. Negative test. Mild cramping and nausea at same time each day. When should pregnancy be detected?

Could be pregnant: It depends on when you ovulate during your cycle- it takes about 7-10 days after you are impregnated for a conceptus to implant in the uterus and then start making the HCG hormone that is picked up by the test. It also depends on how sensitive the pregnancy test is. In addition, how regular are your periods? My point is, it can vary, so i wouldn't call it "negative" until you're 2wks late. ...Read more

What are the very early symptoms of pregnancy... IS IT gassy,  cramps, lil nausea, clear discharged, Emotional ,reflects...

Misinformed?: Nope. Those would not be the first symptoms of pregnancy. Not in any way do these represent pregnancy.

That is because a mother's body does not know it is pregnant until the fetus is big enough to have blood, a placenta, and chemicals that are detectable. ...Read more
