It seems like things can go wonky as soon as you start TTC  (Judging by my own experience and what I’ve read on the boards….)…..It’s been a couple days I’d personally test again just to see……Its also not a bad idea to keep some Wondfo preg tests at home for times like this……. you can get 50 test strips for the price of a 2-pack of EPT/FRER type if you shop on amazon.  If you have Prime you could probably order them to come tomorrow even if your ordered quickly!

i had 28 days cycles until i started ttc, then everything went wonky.  mostly Af would come early, like 24-26 days.  every cycle of ttc has been different for me so far.  it is such a crazy time.

Are you temping or just counting days? Perhaps stress resulted in late ovulation, which lengthens your cycle.

Did you try a FRER?

I just wanted to echo the recommendation for the Wondfo tests. They are such a value, and in my experience still really accurate. I tested a couple of days before I expected my period when I was pregnant with my dauther, and the test was sensitive enough to detect my pregnancy. 

Good luck!
