Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

I'm pregnant! (My month in review)

I can't believe it!!!! After TTC for 6 months... I'M PREGNANT!!! I don't know exactly which day I ovulated... I just know what days I was 'supposed' to be fertile (according to ovulation calendars, etc.) So... here's EVERY symptom I had all month long!!

June 21st - AF started... very light, brown, thick (sorry TMI)
22nd - AF, still brownish and very light
23rd - AF full force. Very heavy.
24th - AF heavy.
25th - AF getting lighter (SEX)
26th - AF very light (SEX)
27th - AF very, very light.
28th - AF gone.
29th - SEX
30th - SEX

July 1st - SEX
2nd - NO SEX
3rd - SEX
4th - SEX
5th - NO SEX
6th - SEX -- I felt crampy, pretty sure I was about to ovulate or maybe I was ovulating? I never really know and I didn't take an Ov. Pred. test. Lots of watery CM.
7th - NO SEX -- still felt crampy... almost like my insides were gonna fall out, lots of watery CM.
8th - SEX -- crampy and my boobs were swollen & semi-sore, nipples were extremely sore, lots of watery CM.
9th - SEX -- cramps gone, lower back ache (but more like in my tailbone area, not the typical AF backache), bbs still sore (nips very tender), CM thickening up.
10th -- NO SEX -- very sore nips, lower back ache
11th -- NO SEX -- lots of excess saliva, sore nips, back ache, kind of nauseous.
12th -- NO SEX -- slightly crampy, excess saliva, kept feeling 'twinges' in my stomach, kind of like burning cramps (if that makes any sense) they were short and not extremely painful.
13th -- NO SEX -- very, very nauseated. BB's not sore at all. Almost threw up on my way to work. Bought tests b/c I was sure I was preg. BFN. Had a 'hard' feeling in my abdomen and lower back ached a lot.
14th -- NO SEX -- belchy, had one very sharp burning type of pain in my abdomen and then it went away. Felt a lot better than yesterday! BFN.
15th -- SEX -- no symptoms of ANYTHING. BB's felt swollen but not sore. Nips didn't hurt at all. No PMS... had tons of energy, felt really good all day. BFN. Yellowish CM.
16th -- NO SEX -- Lower back ache again, felt great though, good energy! BFN. Yellowish CM.
17th -- NO SEX -- Lower back ache, good energy level - again no symptoms of AF or anything and I'm usually really PMS'y by that point! Nada. Oh and BFN.
18th -- NO SEX. Didn't test. Too scared. I should have started 'brown' spotting this day. I had lots of creamy white cm. Again, no other PMS symptoms at all. I felt totally normal.
19th -- SEX. Didn't test. Too scared. I should have been on day 2 of brown spotting/light AF and NOTHING. Felt great - a little nauseated in the evening but once I ate I felt better.
20th -- WOKE UP AND TESTED BFP! The line was VERY light but it's there!!! So excited and praying for a healthy pregnancy!

Good luck to all... I was so down - seriously, I thought it was never gonna happen for us. I was all set to go to the fertility clinic. So don't give up and I hope this helps!!!!! : )
