Could I be pregnant?

So I know the likelihood is pretty low but I thought I’d ask and listen to other experiences to ease my mind a little.

Basically I am 20 years old, I have never once took any type of contraception, my boyfriend is in the army and won’t be home until November. We last had unprotected sex in January before he went away, I had every symptom of pregnancy other than being sick (I haven’t been sick in 11 years, not really a nauseous person) and I was convinced I was pregnant. I took pregnancy tests and they were all faint positives, but I read it could be an evap line.  I had my period every month after that so I just presumed I wasn’t pregnant. My periods used to be heavy, but they are now somewhat lighter. I haven’t had a period since the beginning of maybe, and I have been getting fluttery feelings in my stomach that have made me gasp but I put it down to gas. I feel bloated right now and I’m thinking it’s just my late period? I just wanted to know if anyone else has had a similar experience and turned out to be pregnant.

Whoa.  Are you wondering if you got pregnant in January?  So like 6 to 7 months along?  You'd probably have a belly by now forming that would look pregnant.  May not be huge (that's around when I got into maternity clothes with my first pregnancy).  But my baby wasn't fluttering then, he was full on rolling around. Not every women gets morning sickness.  But you'd have enlarged breasts most likely, have gained some weight, or at least have a protruded lower tummy, etc.  I don't think you are pregnant, you just sound super irregular.  But you can see a doctor. They can test you and if you are NOT pregnant, wow, what a great time to discuss birth control for when your boyfriend returns.  :>)  Go to the doctor and let us know.  (clinics work like planned parenthood if you live in the states---- they are a great and affordable option).
