Day 34, 18 dpo and despairing

Hi everyone,
I am feeling very discouraged. We have been ttc since December and no luck. I have been tracking my cycles and making sure we time things right. In March I used an OPK for the first time (forgot to use one last month) and got a positive result, made sure we timed it, but still no luck. My cycles range from 26-33 days since I started using Fertility Friend in Feb 2017. Today I am on day 34 of my cycle, estimated 18 or 19 dpo and got a BFN yesterday. Today I feel strange - lots of twinges (which could be oncoming menstrual cramps), hunger followed by nausea, using the bathroom lots. I took a Dollarama early detection test at noon (so not first morning) and BFN.

Could I be pregnant? I made an appt to see the doctor on Thursday. I am starting to despair a bit -- I am 31 and feeling worried that something is going wrong with me (my mom has endo, I have a small fibroid confirmed via ultrasound in Feb, but doctor said everything else looks okay. I also get wicked cramps that sometimes cause me to throw up). Any friendly advice or words of encouragement/comfort?

I'm cd34 in like 18 mins lol and I'm the same bfn! I'm usually a 31-33 day cycle and only one cycle has been longer at cd35. Not sure what dpo I am as I don't track it unfortunately. FX for us both! Oh and I have also had cramps but no AF yet!

Have you been pregnant before? if your cycle isn't regular, even with tracking things may not be as they seem. Like just because you got a bfn this morning doesn't mean you're not pregnant. I don't get a bfp sooner than 4 weeks after I ovulate. My period date is basically useless. Just keep testing, if you haven't started your period your not out.
