TTC #1 after Depo

Okay, so here's a little background info. 

I'm 24 and this is my first time trying to conceive. But when I was 19 & in college I wound up pregnant & miscarried at 7 weeks. That time I only had unprotected sex twice and was pregnant after missing one week of birth control. So it is very irritating now that I actually am trying to conceive it is taking longer than I hoped!  

In March of this year I regrettfully got the depo shot (I did not know me and my boyfriend were going to try for a baby) and had had terrible side effects and bled the entire 3 months. My boyfriend and I decided to have a baby when the shot wore off in June. I had went to my doctor and she told me I should take one month of the pill to regulate my cycle since it is hard for women to get pregnant after getting off of depo. I finished the one cycle and AF came July 4th-11th. I had tons of pregnancy symptoms and was convinced. But after countless money spent on tests and countless BFN, AF came again August 5th-10th. And then AF came AGAIN August 17th-22nd. My boyfriend and I have had LOTS of sex and am really hoping it happened this cycle. We BD 25, 26, 27, 28, 31, Sept 1, 2, 3, and 5th. I got the Ovia app which told me my fertile window was the 30th - 4th. 

I believe I ovulated on Saturday the 2nd due to left pelvic pain. I had coldlike symptoms two days prior. And now, if I ovulated the 2nd, I'm 5 dpo and have had breast pain on the sides since the 2nd. I however have had no egg-white cm this cycle. I started taking a prenatal vitamin about a week ago. This morning I had terrible nausea. 

The wait is killing me to test!

PS - my boyfriend has a two year old son, Judah, with his exwife. He said it took her 9 months to get pregnant with him.
