Trying to conceive

Hello to all of you moms and moms-to-be :)
I was hoping to get some answers as I am a little confused at the moment and hopefully some of you have gone thru a similar situation and can shine a light on this for me.
For starters, I have a very regular 28 day cycle, my period is like clockwork, maybe give or take a day every once in a while. It is the same every single month. Because I have such a regular period it is easy to track my ovulation days, but we have been ttc for about a year and still no luck.
The hubby was out of town on my ovulation days this month, he came back about a week ago and we had sex. Now, my period was supposed to start 09/21/15, today is the third day and still no period, however, I have been having some brown discharge, very light, only see it when I wipe, this has been going on for two days now, it is abnormal for me. I also have not been feeling any of my regular period signs, usually my breast would be sore a week in advance, and even the zit I usually get on my chin has not appeared yet.
I can understand that a late period is normal, and even some spotting before period starts, but what are the chances that I could indeed be pregnant? Has anyone gone thru something similar and ended up with the good news? I am hopeful, but don't want to take a hpt just yet. Any advice or comment would help.
Thank you all :)

Hi, do you track your ovulation? It is possible to ovulate later than you think x
I usually have a pretty regular 29/30 day cycle and used opk to try pinpoint ovulation...usually around day 15/16 however the cycle we got the bfp I had the + opk day 15 but my scans showed I probably didn't ovulate until around day 20! On CD 32 I had a slight spotting but a bfn, CD 33 no spotting and the faintest ever bfp on a sensitive hpt. It took another week until I got a strong bfp on a clear blue
So yes its possible! Unless your tracking bbt regularly its a guess to when we exactly ovulate!

Thank you very much for taking the time to respond bussymamma.
I have an app that I use to track my period, ovulation days and so on, but don't really use opk to pinpoint exactly when it happens. I just thought that having a regular cycle pretty much means that the days would be about half way thru cycle, I have done some research and apparently that's not always the case, so I remain hopeful.
I have not told the hubby yet or taken a hpt, I don't want to get his hopes up before I'm sure. I will wait a few more days and if AF doesn't show then I will go ahead and test to be sure.
Maybe I am lucky this time around :)
Thank you again.... Wish me luck!!!!
