Trying to conceive

Well it is the morning after my BFP on clearblue digital after getting light lines on 2 test strips. Cbd says 2-3 weeks and im just in total shock.
Im 35 had been on the pill for 16years and came off in February. From reading many many sites the odds seemed really stacked against me and it felt very daunting.
I took pregnacare conception from October last year and have continued right through. When i stopped the pill in February i started bbt and the following cycles did bbt and opks. It took me awhile to get the hand of opks as i would have faint lines most days. So i kept all the test strips so that i could compare each day and could see when the line went dark enough to indicate ovulation. The bbt would then back this up. I found doing these invaluable as my cycles have been long 30-34 days so its along time to guess whats happening and bd!
This month i used Zestica. I know that alot use preseed but i didnt fancy squirting a tube of stuff inside. So Zestica come in a little discreet pump action pill shape bottle. You just put some directly onto the area or onto your fingers and put where you like. We really liked it, it didnt spoil the mood and was very soft. I have no idea if it helped but it may have played its part. I also did the obligatory legs in the air for 20-30 mins after bd.
I think one of the major factors this month for me was being more relaxed. I had my bbt charts worked out, my opks sorted and my dh would be away 2 nights a week. So it just meant we could only do so much.
Compared to other months we only bd 3 times. My opks and bbt showed me ovualting on the Thursday/Friday and luckily dh was home Thurs. So we bd Thurs pm, Fri am and Sat am.That was it and we managed to catch it.
Symptoms wise since i didnt really have any the first week and since a week ago i have been feeling nausea in the morning if i dont eat. I would usually eat 9am but im having to eat much earlier now. I havent been sick and dont feel like im going to be sick. There is just nausea there. I have had sore hips and also a tugging like sensations in my lower left abdomen. The only other symptom i thought was odd was when bringing the washing upstairs i felt a little out of breath and heart racey by the time i got to the top. Which really is not me!! I do have sore breasts but they are not tingly or really sore so that they cannot be touched. Just tender in places.
Its very early days and so im really hoping for a sticky bean and trying not to get too excited until i know everything is ok. But i am thrilled that i have got this far as i was so worried that my eggs had seen the best of their days with me now being 35 and having been on the pill so long.
I hope that some of this will be useful and i cannot thank the ladies of the forums enough for all the support and advice offered! I shall not be leaving this forum and will continue to check how everyone is!
Wishing everying everyone all the luck in the world and tons of baby dust for continued BFPS! xxxx
My bbt chart for this month incase it helps.
