Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP cycle 4 with our first!

Hey! I'm 24, first child, TTC for 4 months! Knowing my diagnoses, I am surprised to be posting at all! I have stage IV endometriosis and PCOS, went through a laparoscopy when I was 20 and a hormonal treatment of Zoladex for 4 months. I was on birth control for 4 years, went off it when I was 21. My doctor advised me not to wait too long to plan our kids. She predicted that it would possibly take another laparoscopy and hormonal treatment before we get a BFP, and we decided that if after a year of TTC there wouldn't be a positive test, we'd go through these procedures.

We began officially trying December 1, 2015. Doctor prescribed me to use folic acid for three months before TTC as to get ready, but I was very bad at remembering to take it. Same happened during TTC. Overall, I was just trying to live a healthy lifestyle amidst full time working and finishing my Master's degree, and keeping my expectations low, knowing the difficulty many women experience conceiving a child when having endo. I asked my doctor about the need to track O with tests, but she said to wait 6 months of TTC by regular BD during the middle of my cycle and told me not to worry, and just track my periods with an app and look for symptoms of O naturally.

My cycles vary a lot, I've had 24 days to 34 days, the median being 27. Now, about our lucky month:

February 28 - March 4: AF
CD 7-8: spotting after AF
CD 9: BD
CD 11: BD
CD 13: BD
CD 15: supposedly had ovulation, as I had cramps. But not sure. BD
CD 16: felt a bit nauseated, my stomach was quite upset. Suddeny it's difficult to zip up my boots. My legs are swollen. Strange.
CD 17: felt as if I had just ran a marathon. Tried to nap during work, was unable to keep my eyes open, although I slept more than my usual 7 hours. Upset stomach and nauseated feeling in the evening. Usually go number 2 once a day, now I'm going 2 - 3 times. Getting annoyingly gassy. I'm happy my colleague is out of town and I can vent the room often (sorry!). Legs still swollen, and are still swollen now after a BFP!
CD 18: I'm feeling beyond exhausted. Absolutely unable to work, although slept 9 hours straight. Have a difficulty just going up the stairs, have to take a break. I'm getting worried, maybe I have a flu or I'm sick? Still gassy and strange digestion.
CD 19: things are getting worse every day. Can't sleep on my tummy anymore, because my breasts suddenly are tender and hurt. I have cramps, as if AF is coming early, but this is WAY too early. And the pain is strange, it doesn't last, it's like a quick, sharp pain, followed by a warm/fluttery feeling in the tummy. BD'd, but then I just fell asleep instantly. Extremely, unbelievably tired. Feeling sensitive, cried because I saw an old man play a trombone in the park. Still gassy and strange digestion.
CD 20-25: Gassy, tender breasts, sudden, sharp cramps, light-headedness.
CD 26: getting annoyed with what I thought to be PMS symptoms, decided to test one day before AF was supposed to come. Absolutely shocked by two positive tests with strong lines! Yay!

I absolutely don't feel pregnant yet, but we're very happy! Hopefully the bean sticks!
