Darlin', think about it. You've been on birth control for 4 years, which is 99.99% effective when taken correctly. You're boyfriend wore a condom, which is another 95% or so, assuming he used it correctly. There is almost no chance that you could be pregnant.

And even if you were, you would not get signs this early. It takes at least 2-3 months for any signs to appear; it's pretty rare for them to appear earlier.
