Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

Surprise Pregnancy BFP with Flu

I posted on here years ago after my BFP with my son who just turned 2. I had him after my 21 week loss so he was very much wanted and planned. Fast forward to life now. I left my stable job of 8 years to get some experience in the field I got my masters in and bam I get pregnant the second month there. I am not on BC but I have a very predictable cycle and use opks along with other signs. It worked for me for years until I started my new job and my cycle changed. I ovulated a week early and BD two days before a positive opk. I still thought I didn't have a chance because I had done that a few times (please don't judge my thinking at the time) despite knowing the science. So I was a little on edge waiting but I was pretty confident that I wasn't. I didn't have any signs that I recorded with my sign so I definitely thought I wasn't. I had been sick off and on with colds and sinus infections since January so I can't speak for anything related to that. I'll try my best to note anything slightly remarkable below.

O: I had cramps and bloating
1-5 DPO: I symptom watched because I was on edge but nothing that I can recall
6: went to zoo with family and got nauseous in car while eating a tuna sandwich and once again when there after eating too much, had to vomit water, I had vertical sleeve so I can't eat much, so this is common among us, but still uncommon for me, craved icees
7-8dpo: my sinus infection or cold got worse and my mucus had a nasty metallic taste, also had more CM and it was thick, sticky and yellow/greenish, acne around chin
9-10 dpo: headache, fatigue, lower back pain, so bad I had to go to urgent care, tested positive for h1n1 flu and faintly for hcg

My boobs hurt right after O and had mild AF cramps throughout but not that deep cramp from my last pregnancy or uterus twinges.

I took antivirals and feel better. This pregnancy was unplanned and is very scary because of the things I'm exposed to at work but it's still very wanted and loved.
