2 days late

Hi I have been wanting a baby for a while and my partner wanted to wait another 2 or 3 years however I already have 3 children and they are 13. 10 and 6 and everyone around me has just recently had babies this sent me baby crazy. I had the coil in for 6 years and had it taken out in may 2013. Since then me and my partner have used the pull out method. We where intermate 2 days before my highest fertile days and again on ovulation however the day I where ovulating my fella pulled out a little too late and ejaculated a little inside me. Since then I have been adamant I am pregnant, however 10dpo I bought a box of 3 cheap dip stick test which all 3 never even worked lol then on the first day of my missed period I tuck a test which looked like it had a very faint line but after a few hours seemed to disappear. Then I went and got myself a clear blue early test. And I tuck this test on my first wee this morning which is my second day of my missed period and the instructions said if there
