Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

Bfp with Short Cycle, preseed, and very few symptoms.

I can't believe I'm writing this. I'm in denial, if I can be honest. I've taken multiple cheapie tests, one digital and a clearblue.
I've spent some time on this site, scouring and finding hope. My journey started many years ago, in my early 20s. And in spite of years of trying, I was a firm believer that it would happen when it was supposed to. I considered more invasive fertility treatments, but let's get real - Those options can get expensive, and I (like most of us) don't make a lot of money. Even with damn good insurance, it just wasn't feasible. I envy anyone who is in a position to explore those options. But, back to my BFP.

LMP March 27, 2017. I have a 24 day cycle.

CD 1-5 AF
CD 6 BD with PreSeed
CD 7 & 8 nothing exciting
CD 9 BD with PreSeed
CD 10 BD with PreSeed
CD 11 nothing
CD 12 BD 2x (what can I say, we were feeling frisky!)
CD 13 BD with PreSeed
CD 14 Nothing special. I believe I have ovulated at this point.
CD 15 - 1dpo (?) Instant hemorrhoids. Made my partner run to drug store for Prep H.
2dpo - 5dpo Constipated, hemorrhoids (not uncommon for me, but I took note of them)
5dpo - BD, no PreSeed. Just frisky.
6dpo. Very thirsty. Skin on lower stomach seems softer??
7dpo - 9 dpo. Still very thirsty. None of my usual af symptoms. Just a different sensation in my lower region. Like, I'm more aware of my babymaker, if that makes sense.

9dpo/cd23 Faint positives on dollar general tests, not fmu.
10dpo/cd24 More faint positives on cheapie tests, DG/dollar tree. Negative Target digital.
11dpo/Cd25 (Today) 2 more Positives on cheapies, Positive on ClearBlue easy.
I'm waiting another day or two to take the other digital. I've read that they aren't as sensitive, somehow. None of my +s have been with fmu.

What we did different?
PreSeed - I believe, 99%, that this was the deciding factor this time around. Let me explain- I like lube. I've used another brand for many years, always suspecting that it was hindering my chances. The PreSeed was wonderful, and I would highly recommend it.

Baby Danced twice in one day! - We had fun with it, went to bed happy. We did this 24-36 hours before I expected my ovulation. I imagine I may get some backlash about this, as many of you suggest to wait a day in between bd, as to get higher quality & quantity swimmers. But we had a blast, and perhaps it helped? :)

Layed on my stomach post-BD. - I don't know lol. Maybe this helped.

Prenatals daily, drank a lot of Powerade (B vitamins)

I haven't temped in years, and my last run with opk's was January. In other words, I cannot say with certainty when I O'd. Past experience suggests that I ovulate between CD12 and CD13, giving me an 11 day LP. I did not experience any kind of implantation bleeding.

I'm writing this to give you ladies some hope, the way previous BFP stories did for me. I have a short cycle, short luteal. I'm in my 30s. This is my first pregnancy. It is possible. Much love, Baby Dust, Good vibes, prayers to all.
Have a beautiful Thursday!
