Some ladies haven't got a positive pregnancy test until 1-2 weeks past missed AF! You might have slow rising HCG
Also depends on the amount of HCG in your system and the sensitivity of the tests you used?
So a First Response test is 12.5miu so would normaly get a good line around missed AF
Clear Blue are anything from 10miu - 50miu depending on if you buy the early detection test or their digital brands!
Cheapie tests and supermarket brands are higher sensitivity too
A lot of ladies show negative on clear blue until a day or 2 after missed AF.
Also did you use fmu ( first morning urine) this is the most concentrated and would have the higher level of HCG in it to test
All I can suggest is using a First Response test with first morning urine.
If negative wait and see if AF turns up late, if not you can get a beta HCG blood test done via your GP which will defo tell you if preggers or not:)
Hope this helps and wishing you lots of luck x

I would personally buy a First Response test tomorrow and test Tuesday morning with your first wee. Those tests are very accurate:)
Ive been 4 days late b4 and wasn't pg. I've had 3 children and all my tests have shown positive before my period was due BUT everyone is different.
Try a different test and see how you go. There's always a chance that you aren't as stress, illness, diet etc can throw our hormones off course:/
I hope in your case it's just a slow rise.
good luck xxx🍀
