Could I be Pregnant?

I am 17 and my boyfriend and I had sex on the 15th and 16th of December. We used condoms and he only came once. My period is on a 35 day cycle, so it should have come the following week (the 19th through the 24th). It is now the 27th and still no period. For the longest time I didn't even feel the normal period symptoms I get, which are cramping and mild fever, sometimes even headaches. So I finally started feeling minor cramps on the 25th, and now they come and go every once in a while. I also have a low grade fever that goes from 99 to 100. I took a home pregnancy test on the 24th, thinking that my period was on a 28 day schedule and was a week late. The test came out negative, and I'm thinking it's because I took it too early. I am now waiting for my missing period, and am waiting until the end of the week to see if it will show up, if not, I am going to take another test. I am not on any hormonal birth control, and unfortunately did not take any emergency contraceptive as a precaution. I am now anxiously waiting what will happen. Although cramping eases my worrying mind a little, I also know that it can also be a sign of pregnancy. Do you think I could be pregnant?

Sometimes stress will delay periods, and the holiday season tends to be stressful for most people. There's no way for us to know whether you're pregnant or not, you'll need to rely on a pregnancy test. You're doing the right things and need to keep on doing them even though waiting is very hard.
