4 days late but no pos. test?

I'm starting to obsess a little. I should have started AF Monday and I was having my usual PMS symptoms (moody, sensitive "down there," back hurts), but now I'm feeling better and it still hasn't showed. We were doing kinda lazy NFP and it's fine either way, but I'm just terrible at being patient and waiting to see. So what seems more likely, that I'm pregnant and the tests just aren't picking it up yet (cheapo dollar store tests) or that I'm just really late for some weird reason? My cycles have gotten a bit shorter since dd was born, but I'm still usually pretty regular. I'm going crazy!

Oh, and btw, I'm 26. My dh asked if it could be MENOPAUSE! so I just thought I'd clarify.

i never think menopause on this board when ladies are missing AF lol.
You may have just ovulated a little later.. so if you did get preggo, you may have a later positive test, or AF will show up. I know waiting is a pain in the butt! Good luck!

Roflmbo! Boys are funny!

I seem to be a notorious late tester. Which is weird bc the early pg signs are there, but I will keep getting negatives. My last pg I was getting negatives still at like 17dpo, I honestly don't know when they turned positive, I stopped testing because I gave up thinking I just had a weird cycle.

If you weren't charting your temps to know when you ovulated, you might not be late yet. You could have ovulated late. Not sure if "kind of lazy NFP" means you're charting your temps or not, and you didn't really clarify. That said, I did have a cycle before this conception when I knew my ovulation date, and still AF came 4-5 days late, no positive tests. It could have been another early miscarriage for me, with HCG too low for the test to pick up. But I don't know for sure.
