Trying to conceive

I wanted to share my months journey and symptoms leading up to my BFP this morning only because reading articles of the same gave me reassurance when I needed it most.
The month prior to trying I am sure I had a chemical pregnancy,moreso now because the symptoms were exactly the same until AF arrived 1 week early on cd21.
CD1 -CD3: AF
CD7, 10, 13 - intimate
CD16 - pure PMS (or perhaps just a bad day?)
CD17 - sharp pain in left side lasting for about 10 mins (3/10 pain)
CD18 - woke up in morning with a dull cramp in stomach (3/10 pain)
CD19 - woke up at night with AF like cramps(6/10 pain) Boobs felt sore-ish. BFN on cheapo 15m sensitivity test :(
CD23 - woke up feeling sort of wet down there but couldn't really feel much moisture if that makes any sense. BFN on the cheapo test again :(
CD24 - BFN on the cheapo test again. Husband thinks I'm bonkers. I'm sure something is going on.
CD25 - AF like cramps in the day (4/10) and really bad heartburn having never experienced this before in my life. My urine smells pungent. My boobs are sore-ish again but am wondering if its just that I'm now paying more attention to my body and noticing stuff I didn't before in build up to AF. I feel like I'm going bonkers
CD26 - boobs really aching and I feel restless all day. Bad heartburn again. BFN on a posh clear blue digital with 25m HCG sensitivity.
CD27 - booked a GP appointment for next week. If I'm not prego then I'm ill. Feeling grumpy. Sore boobs, little stomach cramps again (3/10 pain). Horrid heartburn. Pungent wee. Pain in right ovary. Stretching feeling and pains in stomach. Feeling full and tenderness in belly when leaning forward. Mini headaches lasting 3 mins throughout 2 hours. Cheapo test showed BFN but then 30 mins later showed the faintest line - evap line? 3 hours sleep that night. Next level heartburn and nausea (excitement, anxiety or pregnancy symptom?)
CD28 - super duper faint BFP. All day I feel Ill. Nausea, light headaches again, stomach stabby pains at different points in day (2/10 pain). At night another even fainter BFP. Repeat of last nights sleep/heartburn/nausea.
CD29 - slightly less feint BFP but husband saying its probably a shadow. Bought a cleablue digital and boom, BFP prego for 1-2 weeks. Feeling really nauseous all DAy diarrhoea, HEARTBURN CENTRAL but so freakin happy.
Desperately hoping it goes OK from here now.
Good luck to everyone trying. One thing I did find helpful is on some nights, I forcibly stopped myself from symptom checking and instead watched a movie and immersed myself in it. Time goes quicker when your not thinking about every body noise and it nice to take a break from the anxiety.
All i need to do now is to remind myself of my own advice in a few weeks when I get a stronger stomach cramp ha.
