If i ovulate late, would I get a later bfp?!

I'm pretty sure I ovulated around 21 days through my cycle this month, I'm now 5 days late but still getting negative tests? I've just done a clear blue test because I'd been using cheap Sainsbury's tests and I keep thinking I can see the faintest of lines but I think it's my eyes playing tricks on me!
At the dating scan for my first pregnancy I was given a due date a week later than the midwife had calculated from my last period so I'm guessing that I just ovulate a week later than most anyway??
So does that mean that the pregnancy test would also take a week longer to show a result?
Confused. I'm never late!

Yes it would. Your “late” period would be approx 14 days after ovulation but you may get a pos test 9/10 days after ovulation but that depends on the test.

Thankyou for clearing that up for me! I'll keep my fingers crossed

So how long has it been since ovulation?

Clear Blue with Week’s indicator are more sensitive than the non-digital ones. And FRERs seem to show stuff up the soonest.
