Trying to conceive

Hey all! My husband and I have been trying to conceive for about two years. Before that I was trying to conceive with my ex so I've been trying for a total of four years now.
I think maybe this time I could be pregnant. No obvious symptoms but I am two weeks late for my period. My last started in December 24 2015, I was due January 10 2016. A few days ago I started spotting a really light flow, dark dark brown in color with thin sticky texture. It was very light flow not enough enough to cover a tampon during the day. The third day of spotting it got heavy enough to almost soak a tampon during the day but still no new blood. Today it seems it's starting to stop, very light flow again and still no new blood.
A few weeks ago I had a sudden food aversion to my husband's meal and had to leave the house for fresh air a handful of times while he was eating.
The past week I've had a horribly gurgling tummy, gas, indigestion, some light digestive cramps, and also diarrhea (it was a horrible dark mossy green for about four days). I know it's gross and probably tmi but I read that has been a pregnancy symptom in a lot of women.
The week of my missed period I had extreme fatigue and slept almost all the time. Now I'm ok during the day but can't sleep well at night. I fall asleep fine but always suddenly wake up after 5-6 hours of sleep and can't get back to bed. I love sleeping and usually have to drag myself out of bed in the morning so finding myself awake at 5-6 am when my alarm is set for 7 isn't all that enjoyable haha.
Also feel a little lightheaded at times, and best way I can describe it is that I feel dizzy in my spine some times. Also sonetimes feel like I am in a dream states sort of loopy at times.
But I'm two weeks late and all the tests keep coming negative! My breasts aren't sore and no morning sickness. Really hoping I'm pregnant this time but through the day I'll find myself flopping back and forth between feeling positive and then feeling negative and hopeless about it.
I'm going to call my famildy octor and ask about blood testing but I'd it comes back negative I've heard of. Women getting false negatives on blood tests. So I figure as long as I don't get my period there's always a chance. Fingers crossed.
Had anyone else had it take unusually long to get a positive test? I need some encouragement. Thanks!
