You would be expecting your period around April 10th or 11th. A pregnancy test isn't terribly accurate a week before you miss your period. It could be a false negative... or it could be a correct negative. I would say it is just too early to tell. The test will be more accurate as you approach the time of your expected period. 


As for whether you got the correct day, it's hard to know when exactly you ovulate if you are not charting at all, but if you have an 'average' 14 day luteal phase then you probably ovulated some time around the 27th. The 31st would be too late and the 22nd probably too early, though it is theoretically possible for sperm to stick around for 5 days. On the other hand, if you have a 10 day luteal phase like some of us, the 31st would be bang on. So given the information you have, the best we can do is guess. 


If you are trying to get pregnant, next time have sex more often and for longer! ;)
