Cramps And Some Light Spotting

Hi everyone. We have been ttc for three months, and while I am hyper-sensitive to symptoms, I have a good feeling about this month. I ovulated on the 2nd or the 3rd of December (based on an opk test), and within a day or two I was really bloated and gassy. Around 4-5 dpo my br___ts got much bigger and heavier, and I noticed dark blue veins around the nipples and on my abdomen. That has continued, plus I have been really thirsty and hungry. So far so good, right? Yesterday, 9-10 dpo (I am expecting AF on Friday), I had miserable cramps, just like menstrual cramps, with some very light pink spotting when I wiped. No more spotting, no more cramps, but a dull ache down there. I took the First Reponse early pregnancy test today, and it was negative... Anyone else had cramps and were pregnant? I usually get them the day of my period, and I usually get a killer headache the week before, but none of that. So I'm just confused about those cramps, which really feel like AF is about to come. In fact, I run to the bathroom and check every hour or so because it feels like I'm aboutt o get my period. Help!?! Thanks so much for any feedback, and good luck to you all! :)
