To test or not to test

I’m 8dpo and for the last week and a half had a full twinge of pain in the lower left side of my abdomen on and off. I’m 4 days out from my expected period. I had light brownish-red spotting for 2 different days but it didnt last long either day. Other symptoms: breast tenderness, bloating, some congestion, dizziness, fatigued and headaches on and off. This morning I woke up and just didn’t feel good at all and was just a little nauseous.

This is the first month my husband and I are TTC.

I just don’t want to get my hopes up.
