Kay is exactly right. It is possible to become pregnant even though wearing condoms, if a condom leaks, for instance, or if it's put on too late. The uncertainty is worse than knowing one way or the other. Either buy a pregnancy testing kit to check for yourself, and maybe get a friend to help you to face doing it and reading the result ; or see a doc or clinic for a test. There are many other possible causes for such common symptoms, ranging from pregnancy, to being not pregnant but very woprried that you might be. After the test, see your GP or clinic for a physical checkup, to see if there's anything else needing attention.
