Pregnant or bladder infection?

I was sterilized after my 3rd baby 19 months ago. They cut a piece off each tube. Lately I haven't been feeling well, my lower tummy feels sensitive especially when my little one steps on me or accidently kicks me softly. I go to the toilet more often and my nipples feel sensitive. It however does not burn when I wee. I am still breastfeeding though and he does bite me at times as he dozes off.
Is it possible that I could be pregnant after the sterilization or could it just be an infection?

Pregnancy would be unlikely, especially if you have not missed a period.
