Irregular Bleeding Could I Be Pregnant

Ducky - May 13

One week before my period, I experienced what I suppose was "breakthrough bleeding." I've been on the Patch for well over a year now, with no adverse affects whatsoever. I went into my clinic and they did a test to make sure I wasn't miscarrying (I wasn't), and then told me that I shouldn't be experiencing breakthrough bleeding after a year of use. To be honest, I forgot to put the patch on at the beginning of my second patch week (moving, along with familial stress made me spazzier than usual and I spaced)... I put it on two days later, and was told I'd be fine. I started bleeding in my third week, which continued on through my normal cycle week. I've since re-started my patch cycle, and had s_x three times with no backup protection (because I was told I'd be fine.) I've felt nauseated, constipated, gassy, and incredibly emotional since then. Is this just because my body is being wacky again (before with the odd bleeding, now this...) or is there a possibility I'm pregnant? If I am, how soon can I tell? If I am, is there a risk to the fetus if I keep my patch on until my third week is up and don't test until I've missed my period? I'm only a week into my patch cycle right now.
