Trying not to be negative

I'm 8dp5dt and test day is this Thursday. Was all going ok apart from a horrible headache from yesterday lunctime until this morning. Put that down to yesterday being my first day back at work. This morning I noticed some light brown spotting. Only saw it cos I'm using liners to cope with the mess of the progesterone pessaries. I then had a little bit more when I wiped this morning and have had very mild abdo pain on and off today.

I know all this doesn't mean much and I will try to resist testing early tomorrow but I'm feeling really negative. I know the chances of success are so slim because of my age but maybe I had let myself hope a bit too much.

    It's tough as I don't want to get my hopes up just in case , but also don't want to be not thinking positively .
