I'm having like little bumps around my nipples and their getting a little pointy , does that mean I could be pregnant?

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.

I bled a week early. My breasts are sore & i've noticed way more bumps around my nipples. Neg hpt  day of expected period. Could i still be pregnant?

Maybe. Maybe not.: One can re-test in a week. An early menstrual period may be caused by changes in hormone levels, which can be due to anxiety, stress, overworking, intense exercise, fatigue, or excessive weight gain/loss. If pregnancy happens, a bit of spotting sometimes occurs 9-14 days after conception and may seem to a woman that she's starting an early period. If symptoms continue she can see an ob-gyn doctor. ...Read more

Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor.
