Need Peace of Mind

Is it even worth taking the test 9 days after ovulation?

Long story short, I messed up and followed my physical feelings instead of my good sense on December 26th , day 14 of my cycle. This week I am finding myself getting nauseous very easily when I usually have a stomach of steel. I have had twinges of pains around my ovaries and slight clear discharge. My breasts are so swollen and sore to touch. Today is 9 days out and I am having cramps that are slightly milder than regular menstrual cramps, but they are more constant. There is a heavy, dull pain in my lower back as well.

I know that it is way too soon to be feeling all of that in relation to a pregnancy, so it may all be psychological. Or, since it had been three years since I had any sort of sexual activity, plus I just started working out again - maybe I am throwing my cycle off and all of these symptoms are just PMS because I am going to start earlier.

Is it way too early to expecy an accurate result from a home test?

I don't think it's too early to test, but I probably wouldn't bother because taking one that early only really puts you at risk for a false negative because you don't have enough hormones built up in your system yet.
As far as symptoms, some women do feel things that early. I didn't, but I've heard it happens. You're right though, the mind is a very powerful thing--if you're worried about pregnancy you might be extremely hypersensitive to anything out of the ordinary.

I really don't think that is too early to feel symptoms of pregnancy. I felt symptoms as early as 7dpo (days past ovulation), but I didn't take a test until I was actually 13dpo. I think you COULD get a positive this soon, but like Sallyz said, taking a test that early can somtimes give you a false negative. So if I were you, I would wait just a few more days to rule that out. Good luck!
