Just stopped breastfeeding, now having early pregnancy symptoms?

I pumped for my son for 7 months and have just finished pumping. I have no more milk supply. The last time I pumped was two weeks ago.
In the last two weeks I have developed the following symptoms:
-Very frequent urination, strong cramps, lower back pain (strong at times), extreme and constant nausea, extreme fatigue, moodiness. This exactly mimics what I felt when I learned I was pregnant with my son last year.
I have not had a period in 18 months, nor any signs of a period coming around during that time. I have been taking the mini pill for contraception at exactly the same time every day without fail since he was 6weeks old. My husband travels a lot for work, therefore we have very few opportunities for intimacy, however we were together two weeks ago right before all of these symptoms started and about the same time I stopped pumping. I have taken 4 home pregnancy tests over the last week and all are negative.
I think the odds of me being pregnant again are very slim. So, my question is, is it common to have these symptoms when stopping breastfeeding or should I be concerned that I may be pregnant again? Please any advice is welcomed because I'm going crazy wondering about these symptoms.
