Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

I thought I was out!!

We tried for 5 months and got our BFP! I tried to donate my eggs last year but was rejected because of a low AMH. It was .7 and I am 26 years old. With all my research i realized that AMH for young women is not reflective of their ability to get pregnant. However my husband and I decided to start trying at the risk that I wouldn't be able to conceive in the near future. I got off birth control in March 2017. I started charting and found out I had a short luteal phase with spotting starting around 7-9 days. I thought this would keep me from getting pregnant until I corrected it. Here are my chart details: CD13: First sign of fertile cervical mucus, Egg White, Medium CD14: Egg White CM, Lots, Baby Dance CD15: Egg White CM, Lots, Baby Dance, Positive OPK CD16: Watery CM, little, Baby Dance, Positive OPK (OVULATION DAY) 1 DPO: 97.8 Creamy CM, Medium 2 DPO: 97.7 Creamy CM, Little 3 DPO: 98.2 Creamy Yellowish CM (odd for me), Tired 4 DPO: 98 Creamy CM, Medium, Felt a lower pressure in abdomen 5 DPO: 98.3 Creamy CM medium, Twinges in lower abdomen, Vivid dreams, Tired, waking in the night, That day I felt sick like I was run down, fatigue (I wonder if this is when implantation happens because the I read that the body will lower your immune system so that the fertilized egg is not rejected by the body) 6 DPO: 97.8, Creamy Yellow CM again, Slight sore breasts 7 DPO: 98.25 Creamy CM medium, Sore breasts, Lower pressure in Abdomen 8 DPO: 98.29 Tinged Brown CM, little, I thought I was out because this is usually how I start spotting 9 DPO: 98.07 No CM, Twinges in lower abdomen 10 DPO: 97.86 A drop in temp. Thought I was out for sure, I thought I should start spotting any minute, sore breasts, emotional, I had weird pulling sensations, and pinchy ovary feelings like I do during ovulation, I decided to test at 5pm without even a second thought that it would be negative and I could move on from this cycle. I stared in disbelief as a very faint line appeared!! I freaked out and even though I had an elaborate way of telling my husband, the shock sent me straight downstairs showing him that test. 11 DPO: 97.96, Creamy CM Medium, Sore breasts, Ovary Pinch feeling, lower abdomen twinges 12 DPO 98.52, Watery Cm Little, Emotional, Sore breasts, twinges, pulling sensation 13 DPO: 98.52, Watery little, Spazzy muscles in Stomach 14 DPO: 98.21 , no CM, Twinges, lower pressure, test line much darker! Well there you have it! I am now 24 DPO and my one big symptom i can't ignore are the daily cramps from every part of my stomach and abdomen, all over the place! I guess the little bean is making room. :) Things that I did to improve our chances: Had bone broth daily, took fermented cod liver oil, took whole food based prenatal, Took vitex, Husband took fertileaid, I ate grass fed meats and butter almost daily, fresh eggs daily, found a way to get liver in my diet, ate leafy green veggies, drank lots of water for CM, incorporated fermented foods and beverages into my diet, rubbed magnesium oil on nightly, stayed away from sugar!
