5 days late...is it too early to test

I normally have a very regular 28 day cycle and keep in my diary when I am due on, more often than not I'm a day early, never late. I always have very swollen breasts 2 weeks before I am due and the cramps and back ache start a few days before hand. This time however, my breasts have only grown slightly (and much later than normal) I am currently 5 days late for my period with no normal signs that it is on it's way. Is it too early to do a home pregnancy test?

Just said first wee of day as its most concentrated so more likely to show up on all tests :-) xx

A good quality test like clear blue can detect the pregnancy hormone up to 4 days before your period is due so I would say take a test. Let us know how you get on, it is so exciting.

I'm only 3 days late and no period!! So frustrating! I just wanna cry! Even the early tests aren't showing up... Everyday I think it's the day and have spent way too much money on the tests!! I know we did it on my ovulation day and I have all the symptoms (Except sore breasts) to top it all off my SIL told us today that she is!! Urgh! :( Let me know what your results are~! *Baby dust to you my friend!
