I had protected sex about 2 months ago (did not notice any condom breakage). everything was normal last month and I had my period on time (was not shorter or lighter than usual). However, i've been having cramps and breast tenderness since 2 weeks ago and it seems to get worst everyday. my period is suppose start in 7-8 days... but i've been experiencing other sign like nausea and i also noticed a faint linea nigra under my belly about 4 days ago. I am also extremely stressed out about this because i'm not ready to become a parent! Could I really be pregnant? please help!
* I also took a pregnancy test 14 days after sex and it was negative but i'm suspecting that it was too early!
Can I be pregnant? I'm very stressed out?
Added 29 Aug 2012:
what worries me the most is the appearance of the belly line (linea nigra), which i only noticed a few days ago. I'm not sure if I had it before or not (i've never been pregnant). can it be caused by other things?
should I take another test right away or should I wait 8 more days and see if my period comes?

thank you for the replies. I must add that I have got my period but is was 4 day early (which isn't that unusual for me) and today is my last day. breast tenderness and cramps are much better right now but i'm still a bit nauseous . should I still be worried. this is the 2nd time i'm getting my period since the last time I had sex (2 months ago).
Have you had sex since your last period? I wouldnt think it likely that you would turn up pregnant now from a sexual episode that happened before your last period but sometimes the body can kick out an egg close to a period. Stranger things have happened. Your best bet is to do another pregnancy test. You can wait to see if your period shows up or you can do one now. Breast tenderness can be a sign of PMS too so perhaps you are letting worry get the better of you, leading to some of the other symptoms. If your test is negative, you may want to make an appt with your GYN to see what is going on, especially if this period doesnt show up in the next couple of weeks. .
