Honestly, I would guess not. Even if you were, at this stage the embryo wouldn't have even implanted yet, which means no way you'd feel any symptoms at all. Now, I do get breast changes EVERY. SINGLE. MONTH. much to my supreme annoyance, so this could be a new 'normal' for you.<br><br>
And obviously, if you're not ready for a baby, I'd use a better form of birth control. Personally I had a lot of luck with both the Pill and a diaphragm.

Go to The Dollar Tree and buy several pregnancy tests (they're often behind the counter). Start taking them 4-5 days before your period is due and then keep taking them every day, first thing in the morning, until you know for sure. Stressing out about it isn't going to help, and unfortunately no one on a message board will able tell whether you're pregnant.<br><br>
When you discover that you are not pregnant, and you do not want to get pregnant, <i>please</i> switch to a more reliable form of birth control.

If you ovulated on October 4th, the same day you had sex, and you did get pregnant, you'd be 8 days past your ovulation right now. That is pretty early to get pregnancy symptoms, but not unheard of. However since your period is not yet due for 10 days, and I don't know the length of your cycles normally, it is hard to say if you were ovulating then or not.<br><br>
I would say to wait until it has been 14-18 days since you had sex and then take a home pregnancy test if your period still hasn't arrived.

It's highly unlikely that you got pg this month, though still possible. Any time you have intercourse there's a chance of getting pregnant. Reliable contraceptives reduce that chance greatly, but abstinence is the only 100% foolproof way to avoid pregnancy. If you don't want a baby with this man, you might want to ask yourself if you want to continue sleeping with him.<br><br>
Early pregnancy signs are maddingly similar to PMS, and the mere fact that you're stressing about being pg can intensify the physical signs. It's just too soon to tell.

Early pregnancy symptoms do tend to mimic your period. I agree with the others it is too soon to tell. You could try testing about 5 days before you period is due and go from there.
