Brief Answer:
wait for a week

Detailed Answer:
Hello mam, delay of periods can be due to several reasons like stress, new exercise schedule or altered eating habits.
But still as you are having all these pregnancy symptoms which are basically caused by rise in progesterone in body which can occur due to several other reasons do a urine pregnancy test again after a week (in case you still don't get your periods) which if negative get an ultrasound and thyroid profile testing done.
Visit your gynecologist with reports.
In case all reports are normal she will give you medicine to start your normal periods.
All the best and take care.
You can contact me anytime 24*7 in case you need any assistance further.

What would be causing all this if I'm not pregnant? I had thyroid testing done over 6 months ago and everything was normal
