breast soreness in pregnancy vs. PMS


I'm curious about the differences (if there are any) between breast soreness due to pregnancy and breast soreness from normal PMS. I always have sore breasts starting at about 5 dpo and lasting until a day or two before I get my period. Anyone here who gets the same thing and is or has been pregnant wish to comment?

Well I always get sore breast before af and usally it goes away right before af starts. Friday I had a spot of blood then Saturday nothing then today another just when I wiped and breast are still sore. When I was preggo with both my kids I didn't get brest soreness at all so I don't know the difference between how it feel at af vs preggo.

haven't been preggo but I do know that Pms soreness goes away shortly before AF visits. The pain is also varied for me but mostly its on the outer-sides of my boobs.

Every month I get some mild tenderness just before AF. However, when I was pg with my son at 10 weeks I was crying just to put a bra on. Before the 10 weeks nothing. I just woke up one day and set up and thought what the heck happened last night!

That's so funny, since breast soreness is always talked about like it's one of the definitive signs of pregnancy. Hormones are so strange.

How many dpo are you at this point?

This is exactly what I get. Pain around the outsides, especially higher up. Since this afternoon, though, I've been noticing a LOT of tenderness towards the top of my breasts, sort of where my cleavage starts. Can't figure out if that's new or if I'm just unobservent.

The last 2 days I have had the same thing, soreness on the side (only on the left bb) and slightly on the top left side of the left bb and my left nipple is constantly hard for the last 4 days! I am hoping this is a good sign but I also dont know if I am just being more observant this month. I wish I knew already. I am 10dpo today

haha, cool. Ya mine move up and even down, AND on the whole nipple too...ugh. They're better w/o the bra or in a bigger cup sized bra since they swell or bloat or w/e.

I've never been pregnant... but for me... right after ovulation until the day before or the day of AF my nipples are tender and sore. My breasts arent ever sore on the sides, just the nipples and the areolas .. especially the lower part of the areolas. *shrugs* I heard its a sign of high estrogen. And when you have sore breasts on the sides but not the nipples it means you have a higher progest. Read it on a medical site somewhere.
