10DPO isn’t too early to take a test, but it may be too early to get a positive result.  However, if the symptoms you’re feeling are truly due to pregnancy, you should be able to turn a positive test.

I know it’s your first month trying so try to be patient with yourself if it takes a while.  Keep in mind that normal progesterone symptoms you experience just before your period are IDENTICAL to pregnancy symptoms.  Try not to symptom spot because it will drive you crazy.  When I actually got pregnant, it was the one month I was convinced I wasn’t because I felt no different than I usually do, with the exception of what I thought was early AF cramping.  I didn’t get pregnant until our 8th cycle of trying, and I tracked religiously each cycle prior to that so I had a pretty good idea of what was going on each month.

Track your ovulation and symptoms, so that way you know what your “normal” is.  Take deep breaths.  And good luck!!

PP is right. If these symptoms you’re having are really due to pregnancy, you have enough hcg levels to get a somewhat positive test. I got my BFP at 14 DPO, and it was REALLY dark. Like, both-lines-equally-dark kinda dark. 

If I was in your shoes, I would take a test now and just see, but if it’s negative, I wouldn’t be so disheartened and I would wait a few more days. Just me though 🙂
