OK to start trying after late period?

My husband and I have not been actively trying but are looking to do so now.
I was surprised this month when I noticed I was two weeks late for my period. The start of my last cycle was in mid-August. On Monday, after I was a little over two weeks late, I had a blood test for pregnancy. The home tests were negative, but I thought I should be sure. The blood was negative too and then two days after my period started.
Am I to assume I am back on my normal schedule and we can try later this month? I have long cycles as it is, about 35 days rather than 28, but then this was two weeks even more than that.
This would be our first child and we are anxious to start trying, but I'm a little apprehensive after my first irregular cycle.
Any thoughts and tips would be appreciated!
