5 Days Late - Negative HPT

I am 5 days late. I took a test this morning (not first morning urine), and it came up negative.
I am having zero symptoms of an impending period, except that my breasts are extremely tender and sensitive, and I'm exhausted - both the earliest signs I had with both my kids. But with both my kids, I tested at like 2 days late and was positive. My husband is convinced I'm just super-stressed, but honestly, I'm less stressed than I have been in the past six months.
Is it likely that I got a false negative?
When should I retest if my cycle doesn't start?

It's possible you didn't ovulate and usually no ovulation means no period. It's common and will happen to most women at least once during their reproductive years.

I'd wait a week and re-test. If that's negative, you can wait and see if you get your next period. If not and you keep getting negative results, see your doctor.
