Could i possibly be pregnant? we believe I am almost 15 weeks
Alright, if I am pregnant this is my first one. So, here are the symptoms i am currently experiencing,
The period after the time i believe i got pregnant was very odd, it was only three days long with 2 extra days of dark brown spotting and was 3 days late. the periods after that have been normal just bad cramps.
So having periods i had no doubt in my mind that i wasnt pregnant until i met a friend of my significant other and she had her normal period through out her pregnancy and didnt realize she was pregnant until 5 or 6 months.
But now i am experiencing things that have me a little confused so if someone could tell me if it is just in my head or if i really am and if i need to take action soon.
-Weight gain only in belly, pants fit legs just like before but do not button well at all
-Darker breasts with visible veins and little white dots sometimes tender sometimes not, and sometimes i have a tingling feeling in them like they are cold and sometimes they are (hard) sometimes they are not.
-sides of the tummy have visible veins
-Ankles are sore, no swelling, knees hurt, hips hurt, lower back hurts, glutes hurt (odd), leg muscles right below the booty hurt.
-pains in lower abdomen, cramp, feelings, sharp pains that go as quickly as they come (Round Ligament Pains?)
-Headaches, bleeding from gums when brushing teeth
-Hard lower abdomen and area around and below the belly button but squishy when laying down
-Hard time sleeping and odd vivid dreams
-No morning sickness, sometimes feel nauseated when I do not eat
-Always feeling tired
i also urinate often, in the morning at the same time almost everyday and frequently throughout the day
could someone tell me if those seem like symptoms of being 14 weeks pregnant or of even being pregnant, i am going to the doctor this week and would just like to know what others think, because it is really driving me crazy.
ps. we think i am 14 weeks because the pains similar to round ligament pains began of the 29 of dec and counting back about 13 weeks is when we could have gotten pregnant
Also, i have always been on the heavier side, always weighing around 150 lbs at 5 "2" so im a little heavier but in the past few months i have gained almost 10 lbs.

Firstly, your friend is wrong. She might have had vaginal bleeding which she mistook for a period but it wasn't a true period - you can't have a period and be pregnant, it's not possible.
Next, symptoms really don't mean that much for determining pregnancy since they can be symptoms of so many other things.
If you were 13/14 weeks pregnant you would certainly be showing on a pregnancy test so you're not pregnant. It's possible that you could have a cyst or something else that's causing you to feel like this as well as the weight gain so I would go to a doctor and get everything checked out just in case but you're not pregnant.
There is no denying that these can be the symptoms of pregnancy but if you have been getting regular periods, then chances of pregnancy are less. However to confirm the status of pregnancy, I suggest you to test for pregnancy by a highly sensitive pregnancy test 10 days post ovulation with a sensitive ( 20 - 25 mIU ) pregnancy test. Also then I would suggest you to get your serum HCG levels estimated since this is more specific than urine for pregnancy tests.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
