Worried about pregnancy, first pill was late

 I'm having a pregnancy freakout that I'm pretty sure is mostly ridiculous, but I'm a hypochondriac and really need some reassurance or something... this is really stressing me out.

I'm on Tri-Sprintec. My period isn't yet late - it should be starting around now, or within the next couple days - but I'm currently experiencing some "symptoms" of pregnancy that I very well may be imagining due to the stress and paranoia. I'm also not getting the slight cramping that I usually (but not always) get right before my period. My breasts are slightly larger than usual, which I don't think I'm imagining since my boyfriend pointed that out. It seems that many of the typical symptoms of pregnancy (slightly swollen breasts etc) are often premenstrual symptoms as well, so it's hard to be sure about anything.

I haven't missed any pills, but the reason I'm worrying is because when I started my current pack last month, I was around 7 or 8 hours late in taking my first pill. I was still bleeding from my last period when I started the new pill, so it seems unlikely that my ovaries had "woken up" yet during that delay, but I'm still stressing... a lot. Otherwise I've been taking my pills every day within a 1 or 2 hour window. 

I also don't have sex extremely often, maybe 3-4 times a month. We don't use condoms and he ejaculates inside me.

Am I being overly paranoid? I really need to put my mind at ease (and I'm scared as fuck of taking a pregnancy test) because I have had stress physically delay my period before, which just makes things worse... it feels ridiculous to be this worried when my period isn't even late yet, but I can't help it.
