In brief: Not reliable

Abdominal heaviness is not a reliable sign of early pregnancy.
More reliable is a missed period, nausea, breast tenderness. Check a pregnancy test starting 2-5 days after the first day of the missed period. Abdominal heaviness more likely to be intestinal, possibly related to food impacting intestines.
