    Extremely Sore Breasts and Off and On Cramping, Could I be Pregnant?
    Hi there, I have been having EXTREMELY sore breasts and have been having off and on cramping for about a week and a half now. My breasts are so sore I have been having to wear a bra to bed and it seems to be worse when I initially stand up or sit up. My cramps are off and on and mainly if I stand up too fast I seem to get one but they are painful but only last for a moment. Now I got my period on the 2 of Dec last month and it lasted till around the 6th but have not gotten it yet and it is now the 8th of Jan where I am (guam) and I'm starting to get a little worried. My Husband and I do not use birth control since we are trying for a baby and have unprotected sex about 2 times a day when possible. Could I be Pregnant? I normally get sore breasts and some cramping before I start my period but my breasts have NEVER been like this or hurt for this long and my cramps normally start just a few days before my period. Also it seems my aureoles are getting bigger and it seems my nipples are hard most the time if I'm not wearing a bra. I've been telling myself to wait till next weekend and see if I get my period before I test but Please let me know if I should go for the pregnancy test or if I'm just having normal period discomfort.

    Sounds like all of the same symptoms I had before I found out I was pregnant. I would take a test. Good Luck and if you are pregnant... then Congratulations!!

    If you can figure out the 1st day of your last period and then think about when you had sex with your husband... a woman is MOST fertile days 12, 13, 14 after the 1st day of her period... if this all fits then you might be pregnant... sore breasts was my first sign of pregnancy... good luck and congrats (maybe)

    We've had sex consistently through out the month, and we definitely tried to do it as often as possible sometimes 3 or 4 times a day haha it was tiring sometimes. But I looked on an ovulation calculator and it said I would have been the most fertile between the 16-21 of Dec and I even added a few days to my cycle on that just in case I were to have a 31 day cycle instead of a 28.

    What you've described is exactly what I'm experiencing right now. I'm about a day past due for my period and my breasts have been VERY tender for 2 weeks now (highly unusual for me) and I've been having the on again off again cramping (again this is quite unusual for me, even before a period). I've been off my birth control for 3 months and am not ACTIVELY trying to conceive, but if I am pregnant it will be a welcome addition :)

    Keep us updated and I'm rootin for you!

    I have been trying to conceive for 7 years now. I have PCOS and have had a 45 day cycle for 6 months now. Except last month I had a 28 day cycle. My whole life I have never had a normal period. I calculated that I would be fertile from the 24-27th of June. My husband and I had sex the 26th and I stood on my head for about 30-45 minutes (that's how my mom got my brother lol). It has only been three weeks since the actual fertilization took place. My stomach feels bloated and when I press on my stomach right above my pubic line it hurts all the way from one side to the other. I had a hotflash about 7 days after fertilization. My areolas and nipples hurt yesterday. Today my whole breast hurts really bad! Both of them!! I have had my left breast leak milk and stuff before but my right never has. Now they are BOTH throbbing and tender. I can only get comfy when I sleep on my back which is unusual because I am a stomach sleeper and have been my whole life. Sex is uncomfortable because my hubby is a large man weight wise, and he presses on my stomach. Anyone else going through this? I haven't taken a test because it is only 3 weeks since fertilization and I think it is too soon.

    Two weeks a I had some cramping in the right side then later in the left very mild. Today is the 11th and my periods due on the 22nd. I my breast have been sore and my nipples were burning yesterday. This morning I had a painful cramp on my right ovary and a shooting pain the cause my right ride to hurt. All the way from the hip bone by the end of my c setion scar all the way to my pelvic bone. It's like my right tube felt swollen for like 10 min. Otherwise all day my right side has been a bit tender. I do have a couple medium sized ovarian cysts. So could be implantation or just my cysts acting up before my period. Or maybe my uti is back .IDK does the pain I describe sound familiar I don't remember from my last pregnancy!! I have my period March 21st to the 27th I think I have a 30 to 31 day cycle I felt ovulation symptoms and clear discharge for three days starting the 31st! Had sex March 26th April 2nd and 9th! Got my IUD out 3 months ago!! Can anyone help
