I’m 4 days late with my period. Could I be pregnant?

My Fiancé and I have been trying for a baby for almost 2 years. Every month was a disappointment... until now. I’m not sure if I could be pregnant or not. I’ve been tracking my periods for a little while now trying to figure out the perfect timing of ovulation to try instead of winging it. A week before my missed period I had very intense food aversions and cravings which I found a bit odd as I have never had cravings and aversions that harshly before as well as fatigue and heartburn. It is now the 20th and I was supposed to start AF on the 17th. I noticed yesterday that I had slight lower pelvic cramping that was a combination of sharp and achy on the left side for about 15 seconds and then stopped. I also noticed yesterday that my boobs are a little tender on the sides and my nipples are a bit sensitive to the touch. I’m not sure what to think of these symptoms. I’ve never had noticeable pms symptoms before which is why I’m a bit curious as to why I’m noticing now. Could it be late pms or could I be pregnant? I tested the day of my missed period and got a negative result. Does that out me for being pregnant?

Don't let one negative test discourage you. The pregnancy hormone is enormously variable. It should double every few days. A negative test at two weeks late would be discouraging. Tender breasts, sensitive nipples, weird cramps, unusual fatigue are promising signs. How about headache, emotions, lightheaded and nauseous feelings, more frequent peeing etc? I think you should run another test on Sunday first morning pee. Good luck!
