Trying to conceive

I'm new on here and just after some advice and if anyone is going through what I am at the moment?
So here goes.......I had unprotected intercourse over a couple of days whilst I was ovulating using the pull out method.
My periods are regular every 28 days my last period was 28th Janruary which was normal and lasted 5 days as usual. My next period was 5 days late and wasn't a true period as it only lasted 3 days and was on and off and not heavy but the blood was dark like old blood????
I've been having lot's and lot's of pregnancy symptoms
Nausea (but it's sub-sided), extreme tiredness where I sit down and drop off, my breasts went very heavy, full, veiny and very very painful like when your milk starts to dry up! the pain has subsided but they are still tender and i've noticed that the nipple has darkened on the outer edge, constantly waking in the night for a drink, going to the loo more often than usual, i've been getting extreme head aches and i'm not a sufferer, back ache and pressure on my lower abdomen when i press against it or rest anything on my tummy, also getting bubbles and all in all just feel pregnant in general. (I have a 4 year old)
I think that covers it........i've also done 3/4 pregnancy tests all have come back negative but the most recent came back wierd........no positive line but when you look at the side where the line should be there is a pink mark on either side?????
Anyway has anyone had anything like me or going through this and has got a very late positive......if i am pregnant then i'm 6 weeks so far.

Do you have pictures of your tests?
I think if you are 6 weeks you'd expect a clear line by now but if it's been same brand/batch of tests you've used it might be worth trying a different kind or asking your doctor just to be sure.
Occasionally we all have a rogue period/cycle so it could be just that your last cycle was a bit off and thus your period was too and you'll be back to normal this month :)

I personally don't go through what you are describing. But I do have PCOS, and I have friends with a very healthy ovaries... and to have one or few odd cycles(and the actual bleeding) - is normal. What would not be normal, that if you had no AF for more than half a year and not pregnant at the same time.
Now reading your post and thinking it through, it doesn't make sense to me a bit.
If you are ttc then why pull out method on ovulation days?
And if your period was on 28th Jan, then you had another, the odd one, and only 5 days late, then you wouldn't be just after your ovulation days now?? I don't think any test would confirm pregnancy now...
Period is a period, my cycles varies a lot, and AF last whatever is does, which is common in PCOS, said that none of my cycles are actually odd. They only adjust. Apart from the fact I do not ovulate at all and that is another story.
So anything could throw your last cycle late, sometimes meds, intercourse right before the AF, alcohol, sickness...anything is possible.
As for the test... for 6 weeks you would have a clear double line I belive on any test... and a heartbeat at the GP appointment.
