11DPO and think I might be preggo!

So i'm in my 3rd cycle TTC #2. DH and I have a 2.5 year old son and we are ready to bring on #2! :) When we started this, I promised I wouldn't go as crazy as last time, and I quickly realized that is not possible, obsessing and tracking is what I do best! haha.

I am 11 DPO today and I have taken 2 tests (8 DPO & 10 DPO) that were both negative, however, I still think I could be pregnant and am just testing too early. I PROMISED myself I wouldn't test again until Saturday, which will be 15 DPO, if AF hasn't arrived yet.

I have a 31-32 day cycle and I O'd on CD 18 according to temps and CM. We BD on CD 13, 14, 16, 18 and 19. 

Since then, I haven't felt any glaring or extremely obvious symptoms, however around CD 6-8 I did experience some light cramping on the left side that was very faint, but noticeable twinges. Also, by CD 8, DH noticed, as did I, that my bbs were looking full and bigger.

I did test with FMU on DPO 8, however, it was negative; I knew it was too early, but you know how that goes! I then tested, against my intentions, on the afternoon of 10DPO mid-afternoon after drinking two full iced coffees. The test was negative but I also know that my sample was likely very diluted.

I'm not feeling irritable like I normally would 2-3 days away from AF, and the slight crampy feeling in my abdomen has been a bit consistent, something I don't normally notice.

Also, on 7DPO my temp did dip from 98.3 to 97.9, raising back to 98.3 the following day. It has stayed consistently around 98.3, but then on the mornign of 11DPO, it raised a bit more to the highest it's been all cycle, 98.54.

In an effort to find some comfort, reassurance, or answers before I can get any actual answers (BFP or AF), I have been researching CP and what it could mean. I am 11 DPO and do not normally track my CP, however, based on everything that I have read, right now it is high and soft. Is this normal for just prior to AF? It seems like it should drop own lower and harden with the arrival of AF. And without giving too much detail, I know it's high because it takes the length of my entire middle finger to reach it.

I know that the only real answer is to wait a few more days to know for sure, but I really think I am, but I'm terrified to test again and want to wait until Saturday, but I just hate not knowing!

I know this was a long post but I appreciate if you read it and any feedback you have based on your experiences.

Thank you!!
