Tried conceiving one week after I stopped taking birth control. Chances of me being pregnant?

I was on birth control pills for about five months due to hormonal imbalance and stopped after I finished my pill box almost at the end of November. I got married on September 29th and my husband and I want to have our first baby so we tried conceiving for the first time on December 2nd (I think I was ovulating.. I think). We only tried once, unfortunately. And again about a week and a half later. I've had a lot of symptoms of pregnancy - sore, tender breasts and nipples, constipation, bloating, mild back pains, fatigue, lack of appetite, getting tired easily. I got my period around the 15th of every month and didn't get it this month (first month off the pill) and it's the 25th. My husband and I assumed I must be pregnant but I did research and found out that these may be symptoms of my body getting back to normal after stopping birth control. I also haven't had any nausea. My husband and I tried again yesterday to get pregnant. My question is, what are the chances that I'm pregnant instead of this being post-pill symptoms?? I've always worried about having fertility problems because my husband and I would do unprotected sex for over a year (when we were dating and were NOT trying to conceive) and I never got pregnant.
I'm scared of taking a pregnancy test and getting a negative. :(
I eat very healthy, lots of fruits and vegetables, proteins, anything to make my body healthy enough to conceive!
Thanks, everyone!

well, i try to eat a lot of greens and other vegetables, nuts, fruits, proteins, and all that healthy junk, but you should also take folic acid. i've researched and found that it really helps female fertility! i'm going to buy some today and start taking them! :)

You have only had sex twice since stopping the pill, yes you could be pregnant but may or may not actually be. The only way to know if you are pregnant or not is to go to the dr and have a blood test or to pee on a stick. Even if it is negative relax you just started trying.
