I will sleep around 8 or 9 hours a night sometimes less sometimes more, I have had fluctuating emotions and I am terrified to take a test cause a part of me doesn't want to see the negative sign. Do these symptoms happen within the first couple of weeks? I am so curious and want to know!!!!

How many weeks has it been exactly? 
I'd say about 2 maybe 3.

With my first I was sick within just a few days. I have never been regular with my cycles so I wasn't sure. I thought it might be the flu since it was that time of year. I took a few tests but all negative. I was still very sick a few weeks later and took another test and it was positive! The first tests didn't pick it up because I was pregnant enough or something!    This time I knew almost immediately after conception. Just a feeling and then comfired it when I started getting majorly sick last week. Haven't confirmed with a test yet but I just know! Everyone is different though. Some may not know for weeks or months. I think it also makes a difference if it's your first or second! Good luck!!!
