Best answer: You and your girlfriend were NOT having "unprotected" sex. She's taking birth control pills, The pill (by itself) IS her protection against pregnancy, and it's the only method you need to use. There is practically no possibility that she could be pregnant.
(1) This took place only 8 days ago. Your girlfriend wouldn't be having ANY "signs" of pregnancy this soon - not even if she had gotten pregnant (which it's highly unlikely that she did). So, you can discount her "feeling nauseous, having cramps, no appetite, and urges to pee". Her dream that she was pregnant means absolutely NOTHING!
(2) "She switched the times she took the pill only 6 days before we had sex". That's fine. It's not necessary that she take the pill at a specific time of day. All she needs to do is take one pill at some time or other during every 24-hour time period.
(3) "'She skipped her period so she would've been on her period during the time we had unprotected sex". That's okay to do, every once in a while; she was still fully protected.
Here's the way it works: Your girlfriend takes a total of 28 pills every month - 21 "active" pills and 7 "inactive" pills. The "active" pills are the ones that prevent ovulation, and thus prevent pregnancy. The 7 "inactive" pills do nothing except allow her to begin a bleed at some time during those 7 days; a bleed that only "looks like" a period. It's not a true menstrual period (a woman who is taking BC pills never menstruates). The bleed is a "withdrawal bleed" due to the drop in her hormone level from "coming off" the hormones in the 21 "active" pills. By the time she begins taking the 7 "inactive" pills, the 21 "active" pills she has already taken have done their job of preventing pregnancy.
It was the 7 "inactive" pills that she omitted in order to skip a "period" while you two were together. Assuming that, after omitting them, she immediately began a new pill pack of 28 pills (with no gap) and continued taking all of them, then you have nothing to worry about and she couldn't have gotten pregnant during the time you were together.
