it is next to impossible to even know you are pregnant at 6 days since it takes almost a week (7 days) for the for the fertilized egg to travel down from the fallopian tube to the uterus, where the egg implants in the lush, prepared uterine lining. It is only at this time that a pregnant woman's body begins to release the pregnancy hormone, HCG and you can POSSIBLEY detect pregnancy with an at home test and then, the sensitivity of the specific test, the amount of time before your body starts releasing HCG, the amount of HCG the individual woman's body produces and the timing of the test are all factors that can delay accurate results of a home pregnancy test kit. Blood tests are usually considered the gold standard of pregnancy tests this early on because blood detects the HCG before urine does. If a urine test is really sensitive, it can often pick up at least small amounts of HCG as early as about ten days after fertilization. If you are assuming pregnancy so fast I assume you were trying and you should contact your dr. Keep in mind that pregnancy tests are only accurate if they test at the right time! As mentioned above, it needs to be at least ten days (and often longer) after fertilization to be even assumed it is correct so at earliest, you can detect is 1-1/2 to maybe 2 weeks 'along' Do you know for sure when you ovulated? Many women make the mistake of assuming that they ovulated on the mythical day 14, but you may not ovulate until, for example, day 23 of your cycle. In this case, testing through a home pregnancy test as early as day 24 would be utterly useless and a complete waste of money. I hope this helps and good luck!!!!

Cramping is normal during pregnancy and could persist. It could also be a sign that the baby is in distress or that you are having false labor pains. You should go get an ultrasound to make sure that the baby isn't in distress. If the cramping is sever then it could be preterm contractions.
