Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP after 1.5 years of trying

My adventure started with an unplanned pregnancy that ended in a miscarriage last year. We spent the following year and a half not preventing and figuring out my cycle, I average 32 days and ovulate around cd 19. I tried vitex for a couple months, and ended up getting pregnant the month I stopped taking it… not sure if that is a coincidence or not. This cycle I had a positive opk on cd 18. Differences from other cycles: I had read somewhere that couples generally had more luck getting pregnant doing it every other day or once a day, and not to overdo it, and we were following this over the last 1.5 year. Well, this month we tried really hard and did the deed at least morning and night cd 17 18 and 19. I tried to elevate my legs and lay for as long as I could after. I did have a UTI from 1 to 3 dpo, not unusual, but I did have red spotting on 2 dpo. I have never had ovulation spotting and am not sure if that was what this was or if it could have been the UTI. Here is what I had for symptoms: 2 dpo- bright red spotting one time on tp 5/6 dpo- backache, REALLY bad headache, I worked this weekend (in Healthcare) and all of my patients had obnoxious smells, sensitive nose! 7/8 dpo- af like cramps, boobs started to hurt but definitely in a different way than af, more internal and around, I remember telling my boyfriend that my armpit muscles hurt and ached into my collar bones 9 dpo- morning test was negative, very faint positive in the afternoon and evening, was already convinced I was pregnant at this point 10 dpo- more obvious positive this morning, I have type one diabetes and had harsh spikes in the early morning and sharp drops in the late morning and early afternoon, had to leave the lab to eat glucose tabs 4 times throughout the day, felt very faint and dizzy, had to sit a lot, took a digi when I got home and it was positive! Told the boyfriend with a classic bun in the oven trick. Hot dog bun, and I put the test inside! He was shocked and amused.
