8 days' late but every HPT says negative!

Does anyone know what is going on here? Is it possible to have the beginnings of a healthy pregnancy without it showing up on HPTs?

Here are the facts:
- am 8 days' late but every HPT I've tried says negative (I've tried cheap ones from the £1 shop and First Response)
- I have regular periods (been 28 days every month for ages now)
- had sex at the critical time
- have been feeling nauseous for weeks now and everything tastes weird
- my hair has gone totally lank
- I'm VERY emotional (which is not like me at all) and burst into tears at the slightest thing!
- I was quite stressed around the time I would have been ovulating and that mught have delayed the ovulation but TBH I've been just as stressed on previous months and my period wasn't delayed by it.

Ok I know that my period will probably arrive soon but I'm really, really hoping it doesn't... (I'm 37 and running out of time!)smile

(Feel free just to follow me as I report my symptoms. Period will probably be here today anyway - there is nothing like posting on mumsnet/ buying an expensive HPT etc to bring it on! blush)

ok, I know that this is not a pregnancy.

and during the course of today, I've done so much reading bout hCG levels that I'm thinking I'm just gonna bow out of this whole thing altogether. Am sure lots of other MNers have been here too...

but I will update this thread if and when AF arrives sad

I had this 3 months ago

Period eventually turned up 9 days late, very heavy and crampy, could have been a very early chemical pregnancy.

28 days later I got a BFP so don't give up hope, frustrating as it is
