How soon after stopping the pill can you get pregnant

I stopped my pill (yasmin - was on it for just under 1 year) round about the 12 Feb. I had a period 15-19 February. I have terrible mood swings, my nipples are sensitive. I should have started yesterday with a period - nothing. I do have slight period cramps near my ovaries. I wanted to wait till the 29 March ( my wedding anniversary) but the suspense is killing me. I am 32 yrs old and this will be my 3rd baby :)

If your period has not started you could do a pregnancy test, though it is more likely your body adapting to being off the Pill.
