How similar are preg symptoms and pms?

  • Ive been trying for 2 months now. My period is due on Dec. 13. My breasts seem to be more sore than the usual pms, Im exhausted all the time. I never noticed it before but ever since I read that some preg women get a metallic taste in there mouths, Ive had a metallic taste in my mouth (power of suggestion maybe?). But 2 days ago I began cramping, just like I do with pms, I mean its exactically the same. Do the cramps in early pregnancy feel the same as pms like Ive heared? Its too soon for me to test, but I plan to on the 13th. Im just on a rollercoaster of emotions right now. One minute I think Im preg. then 5 mins later Ill get cramps and think Im not. Just looking for another opinion. Thanks.

  • My early pg cramps felt exactly like AF cramps. I didn't get the metallic taste in my mouth till much later (about 35 weeks) The first thing I noticed was a enhanced sense of smell. I could smell everything very well.

  • My biggest sign is always exhaustion. I am more tired than I ever have been and feel like I could sleep all day.

    Good luck to you!!!

  • I had symptoms that were simiar as getting my period, except more intense....the breasts, the cramping (in a different way than when I get my period), exhaustion....
