Having unprotected sex. Started spotting and getting pregnancy symptoms. Pregnancy test negative. Concerned

hi i think i am pregnant. my partner and i have been having unprotected sex and my period was 3 weeks late. I only got 2 days of very light bleeding (unlike me) and then it stopped. It s been another week now. I have done 5 at home pregnancy tests and had a blood test when my period was lamost 2 weeks late. all said negative. I have been getting sore tender breasts, enlarged nipples, bloated, constipated, reflux and tired and napping everyday which is unlike me. I feel like I m pregnant but the tests say otherwise. Would a blood test show up a result now or an ultrasound?? My mum and sister didn t show positive results on their urine and blood tests until they were 8-10 weeks pregnant so maybe im the same??

You can get an ultrasound of you are 3 weeks late. If there was a pregnancy it will show up.But a blood test is more reliable at this early stage.Your beta hcg should increase every 48 hrs.
I think that repeating the urine/blood test should be advisable first.
