Is it possible I'm pregnant or just a Plan B mishap?

Female, 28y/o. I had to take Plan B two months in a row due to two condom breaks. My fiance and I discovered our box of condoms was defective (the first break in June we thought was a fluke, but then it happened again in July). The first Plan B worked and I got my period on 7/14. After the second month, and the second condom ripping, I was forced to take the second dose of Plan B, as I still have to wait until 8/24 to get my iud inserted (my health insurance forced me to wait 2 months to get BC, I don't know why). However, I'm about a week out from my next period right now, but I've been having bloating, nausea, some very mild breast tenderness and cramping. Is this a side effect of taking Plan B two months in a row, or could I be pregnant? My last period ended on 7/19, the condom broke on 7/28, and I took the Plan B on 7/30. I also took a pregnancy test today (8/4) and it came up negative. Please help?

So, plan b is a big dose of hormones.  Taking it ONE time will cause your period to be irregular for at least 2 to 3 months. Even if you got your period on time, that is not to say it wouldn't be late or you'd bleed unusually the next time from plan B.  Taking Plan B two times close together will result in hormonal meltdown.  The way Plan B works is that it is a big dose of hormones.  However, after you take it, your body has to deal with the hormones that prevented pregnancy still being there.  This is what is happening now.  It could be a while before you are regular again.  good luck
