Is there any chance that I could be pregnant?

Hi, so hopefully I am just being paranoid about all of this.
So on December 26th I had a normal period - 6-8 days in length and normal blood.
On January 5th I had sex and he told me he THOUGHT the condom might have broke but after double checking said it didn't.
Still, on January 6th I took Plan B just to be sure. I was a little skeptical if it worked or not since it kind of dissolved on my tongue rather than just swallowing it because I can't swallow things like that.

Then on January 12th I woke up to really heavy bleeding, which lasted for 3 days. In a previous bout of paranoia I posted on here, somebody told me that was normal breakthrough bleeding caused by the Plan B.
Still, due to my never ending paranoia I took a pregnancy test on January 17th and it said negative so I was relaxed for a while.
Then again, on January 30th I had really heavy bleeding, which I assumed to be my regular period since it was around the time it should have been had I not taken Plan B. However, I was really unnerved by that it also was only 3 days, since since I got my first period it ALWAYS has been 6-8 days since I was 11. But I figured that was also because of Plan B.
However, all month I've appeared bloated. Kind of like how I get a few days before my period except it's been this way ALL month. But then it would kind of go away for a little and go back to my normal stomach so I'd relax. But it still is there so it's bothersome. I decided to investigate a little if possibly it was food related and decided it gets the biggest whenever I ate hot pockets which is every time i'm at my grandmas which is twice a week. So then I concluded the hot pockets probably were making me look bloated.
The last two days or so I've felt on and off cramps and it is true, my period SHOULD be sometime next week. However, I STILL am paranoid and believe me, I am NEVER having sex again until i WANT a kid, haha :P
I just need ANYTHING to ease some of this paranoia. I'm almost about to take another pregnancy test just to assure myself but I figure I'd wait since my period SHOULD be happening next week.
I'm not pregnant, right?

You need to trust the signs.  First, the condom DID NOT break. Second, you took Plan B at the perfect time.  Third you had normal side effects of the pill (breakthrough bleeding).  Fourth, you had a normal period. Fifth, the pregnancy test was negative.

All of these things say, "You are not pregnant." 

If you wish to have a prevent pregnancy in the future I suggest that you start using some kind of contraceptive.  If you do not like take pills there are many other contraceptive options for you.
