    any ideas ladies?...period is 6 days late; been having the feeling like it's coming (even been wearing a pad) but nothing. This morning I had some very very very light pink "blood" on my tissue...taken 4 negative pregnancy test (last one being Monday morning)

    Stress is the first thing to consider. Also, sometimes urine tests won't show positive until you are 4 or 5 weeks along. My first pregnancy couldn't be detected through urine testing even in the doctor's office until I was 6 weeks along my 2nd 8 weeks.

    Give it a little time, unless you have any pain or bad/smelly discharge, and try it again. If pain or discharge call doctor immediately.

    A blood test though would be able to detect a lot sooner. Check with your doctor.
