Missed period.: At 31 yo with 17 days delayed menses, the symptoms you described is consistent with morning sickness and bloating. Since your home pregnancy test is negative in view of your symptoms, see a doctor for a quantitative pregnancy test and if result is positive, get a pelvic ultrasound for actual date. Please see your doctor for further evaluation and management.. Goodluck.
