    sore boobs was the most obvious for me. I never get that with AF, but I noticed it starting a day or two before I expected AF.

    I usually get really sore breasts right before AF, but not with my BFP. I also didn’t have any cramping before like I usually do…. but really it was the extreme tiredness, vivid dreams, and hot flashes that kept me suspicious I was pregnant.

    I had this bizarre feeling fright from o, until a few weeks after my BFP, it was like someone was constantly stabbing or pinching my left ovary- it was bothersome and nagging. Sore boobs, like massively sore. Also a few days before BFP I could smell everything. Very dull PMS like cramps- not like the sever ones that I usually get.

    sore boobs, hungry, exhausted, lots of CM, and a strange sinus infection (I never get them)…but I heard it’s not uncommon with the increase of mucus production, and pretty crampy since implantation. So lots of AF symptoms, just way too early.

    Commenting to follow. I know everyone is different but it’s interesting to read all the individual symptoms. I feel like there’s literally no way to know in advance, but it’s good to read about your experiences looking back after the BFP (haven’t had one yet).

    Completely identical! I was so convinced I was going to get my period that I started crying in Ikea… And then immediately wondered if maybe I was pregnant, after all! (I was! BFP 2 days later)

    My nipples were really sore. It was normal for me to have sore boobs before AF, but I hadn’t had sore nipples like that before. And they were ALWAYS hard.

    @BrandNewBride:  O no, that’s so sad! Isn’t it a bitch that pregnancy symptoms can totally mimic AF symptoms? Glad you got your BFP though!

    For me it was different. When I was on the pill I never got symptoms, no cramps, nothing. I was so lucky. I went off the pill and I still had almost no symptos, except 1-2 days (around 7DPO) before AF my boobs would be a little bit sore.

    When I got my BFP, my boobs started hurting at 4DPO. A LOT. I had trouble sleeping and woke up one morning with a metal taste in my mouth. I thought it was very strange and then I just had this sense that I was pregnant. Instinct I guess 🙂

    @CookieCreamCakes:  I just got my BFP yesterday and honestly the symptoms were the same as AF. I always get sore boobs, mood swings, and phantom cramps (cramps that start a few days before my period). The only thin different was that I was late.
