Well, I'm not sure why you would have missed your last period -- are you on the pill? Anyway, your hcg hormone won't be strong enough to be picked up by a pregnancy test until probably the end of this week at the earliest. If you did conceive that night, two weeks out is about the time most people can test positive. For most of us, that is also when our period is due so we know we're late and to test. Since you were expecting yours and it didn't come, it's possible you had delayed ovulation and are pregnant. In any case, just go about your business and get a quality test for Friday morning. Test first thing before you pee and if it's still negative wait a week and try again. If all the tests are negative and you still aren't getting your period (and aren't on hormonal birth control) you should head back to the doctor to find out what's going on.
In the meantime don't drink, stop smoking if you currently smoke, and most importantly get on some good prenatal vitamins as some things like folic acid are essential during early development. Let us know how it turns out!
