In brief: Get checked

It is unlikely that you have acquired HIV given the extent and candor of your possible exposure history.
Acute HIV is a flu-like or infectious mononucleosis-like illness. However, since you have been exposed and since you'll be unlikely to find peace of mind otherwise, please ask your physician about nucleic acid testing. Best wishes, and be safe.
