Trying to conceive

I was hoping someone could help as I am very new to all this! My husband and I decided that I should come off my pill after we got back from honeymoon in August. I waited until my 3 week packet had finished and once my period had ended I just didn't start retaking them. I got my first period after 29 days. I worked out that based on the 29 day cycle, my next period would be due on October 11th. However, 8 days later it still hasn't come. I have had all the usual symptoms I get when my period is about to start but they have stopped also. I have taken 2 pregnancy tests just in case, but both have come back negative. From reading other people's threads I realise that after coming off the pill your periods will take a few months to become regular but I have been getting symptoms similar to those of pregnancy i.e nausea, itchy nipples, bloating. Are these symptoms and the late period likely to be because I have come off the pill? I am a worrier at the best of times but can't help but worry that something is wrong! Would really appreciate hearing back from other people who may have experienced similar issues!
