  • Its still way to early to tell. And if you havent missed a period which obviously you havent if its only been 2 days since you had intercourse I wouldnt even worry about it yet.

  • Take a pregnancy test.

  • I won't say it's all in your head, but it's not due to pregnancy. Even if you end up conceiving from that sexual encounter, it may not even have happened yet, unless you know for a fact that you've already ovulated since then. And if you have, then it takes another 6-10 days for the fertilized egg to implant in the uterine lining, which is usually the point when symptoms are possible, because that implantation is what releases hormones. There are a very few people who claim to know that they're pregnant before implantation, but symptoms are not to the point of what you're describing.
