Thanks for posting your query.

You are having pain in upper abdomen most probably due to acidity.

If you are feeding your baby regularly, periods may be delayed up to 7-8 months after delivery known as lactational amenorrhea.

But for conformation you can do a urine pregnancy test with test kit available at pharmacy.

Take care.
