Could I be pregnant? Or is it just PMS?

My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex earlier this month, and had protected sex twice on the 12th.
Anywho, I've had this terrible headache and lower back/stomache pains for the past couple of days. I've been super moody, too. My face is breaking out, but it's always doing that(sadly) and I've been feeling tired, even though I never do angthing. All these are signs of pregnancy and symptoms of PMS, and I don't know which one it is, if it's either of those things.
I'm expecting my period on the 28th. I know I should wait until time for my period to see if I miss it before I start thinking about this, but I'm just nervous.
I think it might just be PMS, but I've never had this much pain before or during my period. And it also seems way too early to show signs of pregnancy.
Sooooo, I don't really know what's going on. It might not be either of those things, but who knows. Opinions please? How long after you have sex do you usually start showing symptoms if you are pregnant? And if it's PMS, why am I feeling like this 10-13 days before my expected period?

Well hun we are not doctors and cannot diagnose you over the internet. Pms and pregnancy symptoms can run side and side. Either take a test if your period is late or see a doctor

If you think you're pregnant, my recommendation is to buy a pack and test. It is early, but it's possible you might get some type of a sign. (Use pink dye tests, not blue!) If it comes up negative but you're not convinced, hold on to the remaining ones and test later when you're closer to your period.

I didn't 'know' I was pregnant till the week my period was due. Not only because it was late, but because I had unbearable cramps that were awful, awful, awful, I thought I was having the worst period of my life!
