Am I pregnant?

I have been online reading about people who have similar situations to mine, but I just don't know for sure. I didn't get my period last month at all, and it should have been due yesterday for this month. I have no signs that it is coming any time soon...
i took 2 at home tests, both negative, took another urine test at the doctor a week ago, negative. Did a blood test that day, resulted in a level less than one.
I have another blood test on Monday, quantitative. but my hopes aren't high, as i took another at home test this morning when i woke up and it was negative.
I don't have irregular periods, it is always on time, my cycle never changes. I haven't taken birth control in over a year. And no changes to medications.
We weren't trying, but if this little one wants to come, it is welcome. I really hope it is in there.
I don't have morning sickness. My husband says i have been moody, and just really touchy. I haven't really had any cravings, other than for popcorn (which is odd, haven't even had a microwave for a couple years now). my craving lasted about 2 weeks (because i never fed it! haha). I sometimes get small cramps, nothing debilitating, my menstrual cramps are usually worse. I have been tired lately, its so hard to wake up in the morning. If my scale is correct, iv'e lost about 6 lbs this week... and yet, i feel like a bloated cow.
I want to ask for an ultrasound, but I don't have high hopes that my doctor will say yes. Also, i have a tilted uterus, so if there is a baby in there, i don't think it would be seen quite yet. I'm thinking i am about 6 weeks.

If you are about to miss a second period you would be about 8 weeks pregnant, which is six weeks after that ovulation. A blood test <1 at seven weeks is definitive. You perhaps should be asking for blood work to determine if you have a hormone abnormality causing the tiredness and weight loss. Best of luck!

I see other ladies online who are pregnant but don’t show hcg for whatever reason, I just don’t know. It’s irregular for me to miss a period, two mo that I. A row no less.
Could a hormone abnormality have occurred just recently that I’ve never had before? I’m 28 years old
