Late Period...Could I be pregnant?
I am 1 week late and I did a home test on Tuesday which came up negative but i still feel like I could be pregnant.I am generally regular with my cycle. I am also experiencing period like pains and aches in my lower back and very slight nausea and headaches and I feel tired alot, could I be pregnant or could this be stress related as I have a very stressful job? When should I test again? I have read alot about early symptoms as well as if my hormone levels are still low the test will show a negative result. What should I do?

You could do a blood test to be sure.
