Could I Be??

I've been spending the last couple days reading everyone posts and debating about whether I should post anything or not.And I figured what the heck right..
The first day of my last period was August 5 and I'm 5 days late. Mind you my cycles have never been very regular but for the last few months they have been pretty regular..I'm not sure if I'm late due to stress or what? I noticed on August 28 I started having some pretty bad lower back pain and it has been pretty consistent since, as well as feeling nauseated and extremely tired. I recently started school and I figured with working part time and being in school full time that was why I was so tired. But Saturday morning my breasts were hurting. And I've never experienced such pain in both of my breasts. Usually when my period is coming my nipples are very sensitive but not my whole breast. It almost feels like a stabbing pain, its really weird.And also within the last few days I have been feeling very blah, almost like it might be the flu,

It sounds like it could go either way. Stress could definitely cause a missed period, but the only way to know for sure is to test. Let us know how it goes if you test! Good luck!

In the past when I was under a lot of stress, it was never like this...its just crazy how tired and sick I feel..I took a test this morning and I thought I saw two lines, but wasnt really sure. And well I took another test this afternoon when I got home from school but it was a BFN...hmm I dont know, maybe I'll test again in the morning.

If you think you saw two lines this morning, you might want to wait 2-3 days to give your HCG a chance to double and definitely do it first thing in the morning.
