15 DPO, newly TTC, unsure of symptoms!

Hello ladies!  This is my first month of TTC!  I am very unsure whether I am having symptoms or if they are all in my head.  I went off birth control 9 months ago and have had irregular length cycles, only rarely feeling mid-cycle pain (most likely ovulation?).  I was on BC for 10 years and before then never had a period.  So even though I'm almost 30, I don't really know what premenstrual symptoms feel like and I certainly don't know what early preg symptoms feel like.  Since my cycle length has been irregular, I used OPK this month and so I think I am 15 DPO (AF is due in 2 days).  I was BFN on 10DPO.  I've had twinges and cramping from 7-12 DPO, feeling "leaky", heartburn, very hungry.  When do you think I should test?  Thanks in advance for your replies!!

if you're 18 dpo - I'd say test.  Any early pregnancy symptoms are SO similar to PMS so it's hard to tell... Best of luck.

thanks for replying!  I really want to take your advice and wait til 18DPO, but last night I just couldn't sleep at all.  My head is so full of wondering whether I'm pregnant or not, I feel like I have to take a test today.  If it's BFN, I'll take another in a few days.

it was BFN :(  I am so sad.  I was thinking of checking Wed and if still BFN, then Fri.  Is this just too much?  Should I give up hope?
