    Missed Period, negative test

    I am devouring the internet right now trying to find a correct answer to this....

    I don't think I ovulated this month, I took my ovulation tests starting the same day I always do and took them much longer than I normally do. I have been trying to get pregnant with my husband for 10 months now, and have been EXTREMELY regular every month. All the way down to knowing the time of day I get my period and what I feel physically when I am ovulating (maybe that's bizarre, but I do feel a light pain on a certain side every month).

    Last month, my period was two days late, and very weird, but not light. It started very light, then went heavy, then stopped, and it only lasted two days. It's usually opposite, starting out heavy and then light and lasting around 4 days. Then, I am pretty sure I didn't ovulate, and now I am two days into being late on this period.
    I took a pregnancy test yesterday and got a negative.

    I'm probably jumping the gun, but... What should I do now?

    You are honestly not going to like this answer but just wait!
    Try to focus on something else. (I know I know not possible). I was late last month by a couple of days and I thought for sure I was pg. I would test tomorrow morning if you don't get AF today.
