Unhappy need suggestions fast, nesting

hello, I am a beginner bird keeper and one of my love bird pair have laid eggs recently, but the problem is I don't know how long has the female been nesting its been 20+ days I guess now, and the female has left the nest now and the eggs have not yet hatched. I am very worried. I don't know what is the problem here. are the eggs just wasted now?

Put a flashlight up to the large end of the egg. If it glows yellow, the egg is a dud. If it glows more orange or red coloration, or it's dark, then it's fertile or has a chick inside. Whether or not the chick is still alive is another matter.
