Trying to conceive

Hello! I'm new here, and the symptoms I've been having lately are what prompted me to join. I can't tell if these are pregnancy signs, AF signs, or if I have simply come down with something. Firstly, I have an average 28 day cycle (although, I bounce between 26-33 days each cycle) and I am currently on Cd31. I had expected AF to arrive on the 4th of December, but nothing yet.
My symptoms include: exhaustion (can't hardly keep my eyes open), breasts very sore to the touch, hungry (read: ravenous) all the time- from the moment I wake up till the moment I go to bed, one side of my throat is swollen and painful, I've been making very frequent bowel movements, have an increased amount of milky/stretchy CM, I thought I possibly had my first ever yeast infection a few days ago, but seem to have recovered? Also, I typically bruise easily before AF is due, but this time I have not acquired any mystery bruises. I have been having some food cravings that are all over the chart...never the same thing, but when I want something, it is very specific, and very strong. Sometimes craving food I had originally disliked. Some very slight, hardly noticeable nausea (mainly due to hunger pangs, I think.) I've been very gassy, and can remember one evening of sex feeling quite painful about a week ago, it felt like bad gas/intestinal pain.I've been cramping very lightly since the day before I had expected AF to arrive. The cramps range from achy to brief, sharp twinges. They can be felt on the tops of my thighs at times, as well.My longest recorded Cd is 33, so I am waiting for Cd 34 to test, just to (hopefully) avoid any false negatives.
I have not been actively trying to get pregnant, but have not been avoiding it, either. I am not sure when I ovulated. Now that I am having these symptoms, I am getting kind of excited and also slightly worried that I will get a BFN. Although, whatever happens, I will be at peace with it! I'd just like to know what is going on.
Has anyone else experienced these symptoms? What was the outcome?

Oh, my temperature has also been bouncing around (higher than usual)...but I'm not sure if this is just a fever, since the glands on one side of my throat are swollen and painful.
