My GF took a few cycles of contraceptives pill and stopped in the month of September. Her pill stopped on the 18th, period started on the 23th and ended on the 28th of September. We had unprotected sex on the 7th of October, roughly 1 week before ovulation if everything goes well. Only a few seconds of penetration for a few times with no ejaculation. Expected period is on 26th of October. Now its 11 days before her expected period and she's feeling minor cramps. Could she be pregnant, or signs that her period is coming naturally?

If your girlfriend has stopped taking the birth control pill, it may take a few months for her cycles to establish there own rhythm, so it's impossible to predict ovulation or any other feature of her menstrual cycle at this point.
Additionally, it would be too early to experience any signs of pregnancy. The first sign she would be most likely to experience is a missed period.
The only way to know if someone is pregnant is for them to take a pregnancy test. Pregnancy tests are accurate two or more weeks after the sexual activity in question, or when a period is late, whichever comes first.
