Blood test for HCG

Im already on 41 days past my last period (Jan 23rd).  My normal cycle can vary from 30-35 days.  Rarely it can go to 38 days.  Today I went to my obgyn to get a blood test for, I guess, the HCG level to see if Im possibly pregnant.  I really hope I am, but I have no pregnancy type symptoms.  With my Son I found out I was pregnant 48 days after my last menses with no symptoms besides tender breasts.  
Is there any possible way I may be pregnant now?  I think I will receive my results in 2-3 days, but I am so anxious.  I did a urine blood test last week which was negative but I think that if I am pregnant it would be to early to show up on the urine test because my cycles are so long and irregular.

There is always a chance if you BDed before and during ovulation,  and I was almost 8 weeks before there was enought HCG to show in my blood.  So good luck and  I hope you get your BFP.

Bd ??? what does it mean.  I think I understand but dont know what it stands for.  Anyway we  did during ovulation based on 30 days and then also based on 38 days.  So Im hopping.  Today is my day 42 and no menses. No signs of  them comming which I usualy feel.
Now Im really  getting my hopes up.
