I am four days late I can usually set a calendar by my cycles. I had some spotting when it was due waited for 2 days and got a negative. I do have a block tube so even in the best of cases I have a 50% chance. Plus, after 4 years of ttc it is hard to get my hopes up.

Yes, you could still be pregnant. It depends on the test, the time of day it was taken and other factors. If the test is still negative in a couple of days and your period hasn't started, go to your doctor for a pregnancy test. If you are having pain, go now
