Hi there,

Some women do get these signs of pregnancy at this early stage, yes. However, the only way to be certain if you have conceived is to take a pregnancy test. You can get early pregnancy tests that work up to 6 days before the day of your missed period, but if taken at this point are around 62% effective. If you are able to wait and test if your period is late, pregnancy tests can be over 99% effective. It is up to you when you decide to test, but if you do take an early test and it comes back negative but your period is late, you should definitely take another test.

I'm sorry I can't give you a more definitive answer but I hope this helps.

Best wishes,
