Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP, 1st cycle with lube, chest infection!

Hi guys,
I need to share my story as I've read most of these myself!

We had started TTC back in December '16. Had a chemical (4w) in Feb, tried for 2 more months with no luck, and then bought a house & too stressed to TTC. This time, it was our 3rd cycle getting back on the saddle. I am currently 4w4d pregnant/18DPO. I am 30yo and my partner is 37, our 1st bub.

Things we did different this time:-
We BD'd every 2nd night during fertile window.
I stopped drinking chilled water (heard the eggy likes warm environment to implant)
1st cycle using First Response/Preseed lubricant. I would insert a whole tube of it! And Partner would put some on himself. My GF recommended this to me, she also got BFP 1st cycle using it. I would lay down for 10mins after.
1st cycle taking probiotics daily.
I had a very bad chest infection right when I ovulated. I still have only half my voice back. So much coughing.. I am so surprised to get the BFP, even though we gave it a good crack this time (BD EOD).
I still had 1 coffee per day (morning). Still exercised. Still had few glasses of alcohol every now and then

Symptoms
1DPO -7DPO - no odd symptoms other than very bad chest infection!! I completely lost my voice and so much coughing!!
10DPO - restless sleep plus i was CERTAIN AF was coming. Which would be 4 days early. Had those heavy bloated period feelings!
11DPO - very bad cramps at night time - I dont normally get cramps (I just get dull aches), but this was actual cramping in lower belly that would last about 3 seconds a time, i would cringe. It hurt. Implantation? very restless night of sleep. Hot and cold.
12DPO - more cramps at night.
13DPO - nothing - DRY CM
14DPO - no AF. hmmm... - DRY CM
15DPO - no AF. hmmm... - DRY CM
16DPO - brown spotting. Am I out? Nope. Blazing BFP.

Not more spotting after this.

I did not test until I was 2 days late. I would rather get AF than see a negative test. Although on 16DPO I had some brown spotting when I woke up. Thought I was out, so did a test for the hell of it-blazing BFP.

I am waiting on blood results. I am nervous. and I dont want to do any more HPT.

I am thinking of you all, keep going.

Thanks for taking the time to read this.
