Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP - Irregular cycles

I've always had irregular cycles throughout my life since I've started my period. Previously I've had cycles that are about 50+ days long. However from end of 2015 to September 2016 I've had 33-37 days cycle which was amazing for me because they're somewhat consistent. From September to December 2016 I never got my period & after many pregnancy tests it was always negative. I saw my GP who suspected that I had PCOS as I have irregular cycles & now they've stopped. I was absolutely devasted as my partner & I were going to start trying for a baby come 2017. I was blood tested and had a ultrasound and was NOT diagnosed with PCOS. As a result of this they just told me I had 'longer' cycles that anyone else & therefore may take longer to conceive (this was in March 2017 when I was given the results of my ultrasound that I had in Feb). However I did get my period in January 2017.

So my cycles since they started were 40 & 49 days long. This is my third cycle that we conceive and my last period was 4th April 2017. I'm unsure as to when I ovulated as I said to myself that I would buy ovulation tests if we didn't fall pregnant this cycle. I also said to myself that I wouldn't obsess over every symptom I was in my last cycle. I did 'relax' a bit I guess.

I don't live with my other half and only see each other on weekends so we only have the chance to fall pregnant really slim every cycle!

So I presume I did ovulate between 28th April - 30th April if I had 40 day cycle:
28th April: Intercourse
29th April: 1DPO - mild cramping throughout the day. Slight nipple soreness
2 DPO (went out for my friends birthday)- Mild cramping/stomach ache throughout the day. Mild Lower back ache throughout the day. Creamy/sticky but not stretchy cervical discharge on underwear & Sensitive nipple

your story sounds similar to mine and I was wondering if you could give me some insight!

first off, I have very irregular periods. I first got my period at 11 1/2 and then didn't get it again until I was 13.

aftet that it wasnt consistent at all. I would get it some months and not others. I was put on the pill at 17 to be regulated. the pill allowed me to get my period every month . I stopped taking the pill 2 years ago when I got married.

after I stopped, my periods became irregular again. My husband and I have been trying to conceive on and off for the past 6months.

this month feels so di then the rest! I am at 15dpo and have sore breasts, creamy/yellowish cm, freque urination, back pain, and I'm very tired. I tested two days ago and got a bfn.

af was "due " yesterday. Do you think I may be pregnant this month ?

thanks for your help!
