Re: help! is it possible i could be pregnant?

All you can do is wait and see if your next period comes on time. Some of the cheap internet pregnancy tests are more prone to evaporation lines (especially if read after the time limit, so keep that in mind). If you have a Dollar General near you, they sell pregnancy tests for $1 each, but the accuracy is so-so (back up a positive with a name brand).

March 30 would have been too soon for a qualitative test assuming your light bleeding was a period. The odds of conceiving any one cycle (for a couple without fertility issues) and when intercourse is timed correctly is 20-25%, so don't get discouraged if you are not pregnant. It usually takes a couple without fertility issues 6 months-1 year to get pregnant. You might looking into basal body temping to help pinpoint ovulation and understand your cycles. A good book to read is called "Taking Charge of Your Fertility".
