Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP: The hardest journey

Married for 8yrs, always hoping for a surprise, but after 3yrs of traveling and living life, we needed to focus on starting our own family. Downloaded tons of apps, OPK's, bbt,read books, and of course the worst of them all, Google! Nothing! Making the call to the RE was hard, but nothing could have prepared me for what was going to happen next. 6 rounds of clomid, negative... Onto IVF, because we're candidates... My AMH was 1.4(2011).
Transferred (2) 3day embryos, at 7wks ended up in the ER with an ectopic. 5 days later, miscarried my second angel. Had a lap salpingectomy and after a 6month break, onto to round 2.
Retrieved 9 eggs, 9 fertilized! 8 made it to 5day blasts! 1 transferred, 7 frozen! Onto the good stuff!
1-3dp5dt no symptoms
4dp5dt, some mild cramping, felt like period was coming. This was by far the strongest of them all, but it wasn't like the pains I had during my ectopic...Very nervous, but no spotting. No trouble falling asleep, but waking up way to early...
6dp5dt more cramping, but it's more gas than anything! Progesterone?
7dp5dt feeling foggy start getting a headache- I never get headaches??? Drinking my coconut and electrolyte water- so strange???
8dp5dt, more cramping, but it comes and goes...
9dp5dt, headaches again?! Some cramping... Craving pizza... Yeah I like pizza, but I never crave it!
10dp5dt, BFP!!!! Beta is 523!!!!
I did 1year of Accupuncture... Prenatals, iron, and recently getting treatment from a chiropractor. Tilted uterus, and had endometriosis which was confirmed after 1st retrieval...
