Cautiously Celebrating...

I know yesterday I said I would wait a couple days and test again but I woke this morning and just had to take another test.  Again, it's still pretty early but this is what I got 5dp5dt (5 days post 5 day transfer).  I see it.  It's faint but it's there and it clearly wasn't there yesterday.  If all goes as it should, this line will darken each day as more hcg is produced.  We have a long way to go but this feels so good to see.  I've been having some symptoms that I wasn't sure if they were in my head or not.  I'm still as bloated as can be so I emailed the nurse yesterday and she assured my that it was completely normal and the hormones can cause GI irritation and if I am indeed pregnant that it would all make sense.  I've also felt these weird tugs and stings in my abdomen.  They're less than a second long but it's enough to get my attention.  I have been drinking a lot of water as well. 
I text the IP's this photo first thing this morning because I know they are anxious for some sort of a sign.  I warned them that we have a long way to go and to remain very cautious about it all.  I can't say I know what they're feeling as I've never been through what they have.  It must be a battle to want to scream from the rooftop with excitement and celebrate but know that they can't just yet.  I'm going to continue to test every morning until I see two bright pink lines that leave no doubt.
