Still no AF? adult content

I am a 28 day cycle, sometimes 29 day cycle. I am now on CD30 and no sign of AF coming.
I took a test and it is negative?!
I have had symptoms that could mimic pregnancy or PMS but in the last three days, I have had a lower backache (never get this before my period), hunger, fatigue, a 'stretching' feeling in the middle of my torso (not the pit of my stomach but higher), tender breasts along the tops and sides.
Last night I couldn't sleep for the nausea, gassy feeling in my gut and the bloating. I had to munch on crackers for half the night b/c I kept thinking I was going to be sick (I haven 't had this except when I was pregnant twice before)
I am wondering if this is maybe just too early for this pregnancy and that there just isn't enough of the hcg hormone yet in my body to be detected by the HPT? Or, I am just wishful and AF is on its' way?
I saw what I thought was IB at 6 dpo and my temp dipped at 7 dpo then went back up so I was so sure this could be it!
Maybe not?

  • Well, AF showed her face :( Very different pms symptoms this month; never had nausea, dizziness and lack of cramps and backache. These are all new pre AF symptoms for me. At least, I will know for next time not to get too excited until I am more than a couple of days late.
