19 days late, negative pregnancy tests - how common is this - women to have low HCG?

I know the questions have been over-asked but I really need some advice. My last period was 5th Jan and I had unprotected sex on 12th Jan (Day 8th). I am now 19 days late and no sign of my period. My periods are typically 26-30 days and I am very regular - except for the last one which was a week late and only lasted 3-4 days (normally it's 5-6).

Symptoms-wise, I noticed extra discharge few days after period was due and I felt mildly dizzy a few times. Have been waking up a few times a night to pee. Nipples were sore for half a day last week, when I was ten days late. Was at a car showroom with my bf last weekend and felt nauseated by the smell of new leather.

Thing is, I've tested 4 times and it's all negative (last test was today). Am I stressed? Well, kinda, but not anymore than I usually am. Wondering if it's common for some women to just not register enough HCG to get a positive test. Some background: I was pregnant about 7 years ago and I only picked it up after I was 2 months plus. Aborted at 3 months :(

A part of me really hopes I'm pregnant and I keep thinking about it. Please help.

I am in the same boat. I am 18 days late. I already have two children. I also have a fibroid inside my uterus but Dr said that shldnt interfere with me getting pregnant. We'll my youngest son is now 9. Soon will be 10 In a few months and since I've had him I have had iregulat periods. But for the most part I had one every month just not the same day. It is now Jan. And since June of last year I have ranged everywhere from 28 to 44 days between each period. I thought I was pregnant back in sept. I was 15 days late and had every symptom. Took three tests. Two came out with faint lines and one came no neg. So I went to have a blood test done. Turns out I wasn't and I started that next week. Now I'm in the situation again. I tried not to get my hopes up but I know exactly how frusterating this cld be. Like I said I'm 18 days late and went today and bought two tests. I took one in the middle of the afternoon but came out neg. I'm going to wait to take the next one tomorrow morning. I feel different somehow. During the week I was supose to start I had three days of brownish discharge but only enough that when I wiped that's all it was. Never got on my underwear or anything. The symptoms I'm having is a little bit of cramps here and there, gas, bloated so bad day and night that I feel like i could pop. Very uncomfortable. A little sick to my stomach off and on. Moody, emotional, urinating more, lower back aches really bad. My period was suppose to start on Dec 24, but it is now Jan 13 and still nothing. I will test in the morning and let you guys know what the result was. Baby dust to you all. Fingers crossed.

Hi there, hoping for some advice! My period is 2 weeks late today and I've done 3 pregnancy tests (2 first response and 1 clear blue digital) and all negative, last one was this morning! I have had some period pains, last night was quite bad so thought it would have arrived overnight but nothing this morning....hence the 3rd test! Can I still be pregnant? I do have endometriosis but have never experienced late periods.....I'm very regular in general! I had a slight bit of dizziness over the weekend but that's really it in terms of symptoms.
Just a bit confused :(

I am now 18 days late for my period when I am usually very regular maybe a day or two late, ive been feeling very sick on and off, my boobs have grown noticeably, ive been dizzy and had really bad heartburn ever since the maybe conception. I've done several tests over the weeks, some are blank, some negative and I've had some with lines in the positive are but I don't know what to trust.
