Hi Anon

Thanks for your post and welcome!

Wherever you are reading that two people can conceive when both are kissing/lying on each other fully clothed are sites to be avoided. This is scientifically not possible when you think about it - no sex, no genital touching and fully clothed where these layers of clothing act as a full barrier - pregnancy cannot work in this way.

Did you have sex ed at school? If not, it's a good idea to study on your own so you know how sex and the human body works. This will eliminate a lot of stress than the unknown can cause.

A woman cannot get pregnant unless she has unprotected sex (both naked) with ejaculation inside (or rarely, on the opening of) her vagina. Sperm may wet clothes but they don't penetrate clothing in order to find a vagina and swim up it to cause pregnancy.

So you cannot get pregnant from what you did.
