Maybe you ovulated later than you normally do.  No it’s not weird that you feel when you ovulate, I think it’s called something like middlesmertz (definitely spelled that wrong!)  Buy $1 test from the local Dollar Store and test each morning with FMU until you get AF or a BFP.

Nope, your period is determined by your ovulation date.  After you O, you go through what is called the Luteal Phase (LP.)  Your LP is generally the same number of days every cycle.  If your LP is shorter than 12 days, you might have trouble conceiving.  Stress can cause you to have a delayed O date which would also cause a delayed period.

Just wanted to commiserate, that I’ve been there. As soon as I started TTC, my cycle started getting longer. It sucks because intuitively, AF=BFP, but it is so much more complicated than that. Hang in there, you will get your answer one way or another soon.

i agree with the PP’s but i also want to mention that some women don’t get positives with urine tests for whatever reason and need a blood test to confirm a pregnancy. i would wait until next week and if you still don’t have AF, then see if you can get a blood test to check.
