17 y/o ---NEED HELP (pregnancy help and guidance)

I really need help. I'm young and I'm scared. I'm seventeen years old, and I'm not sure if I should call myself an expecting mom or not. I read a lot of stories about women not finding out they're pregnant until they're like 3 months or so into the pregnancy. Well, I'm kind of in that predicament. My last period was due Dec. 10-15 ish 2013, I didn't have my period, but about a week or so after I was due, I had light bleeding like, pink ish then brown and it only lasted 2 and half days. Ever since the second day after my missed period, I've been taking pregnancy tests ---ALL NEGATIVE. But it gets confusing when I have sore nipples, increased appetite, lower back pains, and my sides are always hurting, and I'm always sleeping and I always have to pee. I've been thinking that I need a blood test, but I don't think I can get one without parental supervision because I'm only 17(and in GA). Now, if I am pregnant I don't know how I will break it to my mom, step dad, and dad, and I don't know what I will do. I'm graduating high school in May and I've been accepted to college already, and I don't know how this will have a toll on my future adventures. My boyfriend already knows about this, and he's very supportive..but I just don't know. I really really need some input from grown women who knows what they're talking about. Thank you guys in advance

the best thing you can do is go get a blood test. If you have access to your docs info, give their office a call and see if you can get a blood test with/without parental consent. if you need parental consent, be honest with your mom and ask her to take you to the doctor. you may or may not be pregnant but you need to find out for certain. First step is to find our for sure what's going on before you start worrying about what could potentially happen. keep your spirits up and take it one step at a time, you are a tough cookie and can overcome anything. wish you the best!
