BFP 10 DPO Baby Number 2! Short luteal phase

Hi all!
I am beyond excited to share my BFP story with you ladies! I've been following this board for months and I feel so blessed to be able to share my details after TTC for just 2 months.
My husband and I have an 18 month old baby girl. We decided a couple of months ago to start trying for baby number 2! It took about 8 months to conceive on my daughter, so this was a huge shock. But, in hindsight, I wasn't charting very well and we didn't use OPKs until the month we did conceive on her.
Here is my story:

CD 13 DTD because I knew my fertile window began.
CD 14 DTD.
CD 17 I randomly decided to take a CB opk (as I thought I had already ovulated) and sure enough I got a static smiley face, which meant PEAK time to conceive! We DTD. It was pretty sensual and I also orgasmed, haha. I think this may help!!
CD 18 this is when I likely ovulated; ewcm, L pelvic pain.
1 DPO glue like cm, vaginal itchiness (came to find out in a few days that I have BV), joint pain, hungry, cold/flu symptoms, L pelvic pain, BM.
2 DPO glue like cm, gassy, light nausea at one point, tired all day.
3 DPO vaginal itchiness, VERY gassy (like clear the room gassy, haha), tired.
4 DPO glue like cm, nausea, gas, bloating, started Monistat 3 because I thought I had a yeast infection (turned out to be BV), decided to take a HPT and it was negative.
5 DPO gas and insomnia.
6 DPO gas continued, bloating, very hungry! Decided to take another HPT (I bought 25 cheapies online), it was negative again.
7 DPO no cm noticed, gassy, bloated, increased sex drive, vivid dreams, thought I cleared up my yeast infection, and I added a note "feeling out of the game this month" (!!)
8 DPO glue like cm, no BM, tired. I decided to follow up with my gyno about my vaginal irritation and she tested me for yeast/BV.
9 DPO no cm noticed, some cramping (but AF was due in only one or two days), finally had a decent BM, some bloating, minor acne, felt "sharp zaps" in center of uterus around 2pm (but this is somewhat normal for me right before AF).
10 DPO gas, bloated, constipated. Doctor called and said I have BV!! She told me to take a HPT to ensure I am not pregnant so we can decide which course of medication/antibiotics would be best. Took a First Response early detection HPT (not a cheapie!!) and saw a very faint BFP line!!! Thinking I got my BFP! Called my Doctor back and she was so excited for us. I began taking Clindamycin cream that night since it is safe during early pregnancy.
My mom was randomly visiting from out of town, so this was super exciting for me to share the news with her in person.
11-12 DPO I probably took 10 more HPTs, all of which had faint to slightly less faint BFP lines depending on the quality of the test. The cheapie tests from online are pretty much worthless until high levels of HCG is in your blood as the FR test showed a much darker, albeit faint line.

I can't believe I will have 2 babies as of July 3rd, 2017!
Side note: I have very regular periods every 28 days and my luteal phase is rather short at about 9 days. So don't be discouraged if you also have a SLP.
Baby dust to all!!!!!! xoxo
