Period vs Pregnancy symptoms


I am currently TTC and am due to start my period in a few days. I am feeling like I normally do right before starting my period. Does this mean I am probably not pregnant? Or can I still have period symptoms before having a positive pregnancy test?

Everyone is different, some get different symptoms when pregnant, others don't feel any different than how they usually would feel before AF Only way to know is to take a HPT, the closer to your expected AF date the more sure you can be of the result. Getting a BFP is also different, some can get one as early as 8 dpo, others need to wait until around 14 dpo or even well after AF was supposed to come

Not necessarily! My early pregnancy symptoms were exactly like pms...tender breasts, mild cramping/bloating, feeling extra tired, etc. I have long cycles, so if it weren't so early in my cycle I would have thought I was about to start my period.

Wait it out and test good luck!

Thank you for the responses. I am supposed to start AF today and so far have just had very light pink spotting on and off...hoping AF just won't come and that it means pregnancy
