I always got sore breasts before AF.  I didn’t think anything of it the last cycle because they were sore, but I got my BFP.  Now at almost 7 weeks pg, I can tell the difference.  It hurts on the sides of my breasts near my armpits. If I lean over and something touches them it hurts.

I get sore breasts before my period. They get bigger, nipples are tender to the touch and when I take my bra off it’s like ohhh the sweet relief!!  The first two cycles I thought I was pregnant, but now that it’s become a pattern it’s just my new pms symptoms after going off birth control. 

 

What CD is today for you? The spotting at 22-24 is a good sign if it stopped.

I NEVER got sore breasts when I was expecting my period.  I actually had a similar experience than you in December where my breasts felt bigger and my bras were uncomfortable but they weren’t sore.  I tested on the 25th (the day before AF was due) and got a BFN.  I didn’t test again until January 1st when AF never came and I got a BFP. 

My breasts became a little sore after that, but it wasn’t until I was around 7-8 weeks that they were really sore.  It hurt if anything rubbed against them or touched them.

@Indianinerniner:  Well, that could be a good sign. Do you usually have any CM after ovulation? Usually it dries up after O. The fact that your temp is on the rise at CD 28 is good too. I would keep testing until AF arrives or you get a BFP!

@Indianinerniner:  hahaha I totally understand where you’re coming from. I’m a little bit of a pessimist now after a few cycles of intense pregnancy symptoms and BFNs/AF. It’s such a tough journey. I have my fingers crossed tightly for you!!

I always have sore breasts with AF sometimes so sore it hurts to go up and down stairs (bouncing).  I noticed it just before I got my BFP but thought nothing of it because it was the norm to me.  One thing that was different though was really sore nipples.  That didn’t normally happen to me.
