should i test?...test results post 58

ok...so for various reasons we cant use BC. im super sensitive to all condoms, BC pills did not work with older dd, etc... we are also very open to having as many children as God blesses us with, when He sees fit
That being said obviously we have had unprotected s*x since younger dd was born(she is almost 6 months). I tested once about 2 months ago and it was negative. I have not tested since...
For about the last 2.5 months i ahve been dead tired. Ive only been this tired a handful of times(all 3 pregnancies and when i was severely anemic and needed a bllod transfusion). My boobs are bigger, but not tender(but never have been with pregnancy). My oh so flat tummy has a slight bulge to it. Ive never had morning sickness so i cant use that to judge.
So dh has been out of work for 4 months so i have been waiting to test(thinking it would be a little less stressful to know 'for sure' when he has a steady income). He started an awesome job 2 weeks ago with great, flexable hours and awesome pay
So today i woke up with excrutiating abdominal cramping and back pain It scared the pee out of me Im thinking tomorrow ill pick up a test...what do you think? I know i ramble on late at night, sorry Knowing for sure wont really change anything bc we eat healthy and i take prenatals bc im nursing, but maybe it will tempt me to wean my 2 year old
anyways, what do you think? should i test?

ETA the other reason i dont want to test is bc w/my second pregnancy we knew right away(were TTC) and mc at 10 weeks i think id rather not know im mc'ing if it happens again

I would test, because I'm a need-to-know mama. But you could always wait a few more weeks if you're worried that you might MC.
