Sore Breasts

I have been having sore breasts for over a week now, and am supposed to start my cycle in a couple of days. My husband and I don't use any form of birth control and I often don't even go to the bathroom after sex. Back to my cycle.. I normally don't have the breast pain issue with my cycle.  I also have none of my normal signs of my period starting.  My breasts hurt very intensely when I wake, and even worse as I sit in my home enjoying the evening.  I have been starting to just not wear a bra as it is more comfortable for me.  I was just wondering if this could mean that I'm pregnant and the tests just wont show it yet.  Any idea's??

It could be the case but I usually get sore breasts through my whole luteal phase and sometimes they can be really sore. It's a difficult symptom to be able to tell.

It could be- it's tricky because PMS symptoms and pregnancy symptoms can be really similar.  For me major breast soreness, like more than during a normal period was a clue. Sounds like it could be that way for you as well. It was also one of the first symptoms for me.  Then there was 'the period that never came'... It feels like you are about to get it everyday and then it never happens.

take a test as soon as your missed period (if you miss it.) Let us know!
xx I'm about 6 weeks now.

Thank you all for the help! I took a couple of tests and they said negative, however I haven't started my period yet and still am not showing signs of it! I made a doctors appointment for after Christmas to find out if I am or not! I did get really sick after eating supper the other day (hamburger helper) and I got really sick and was literally in the bathroom for over 45 minutes! I am staying away from beef for a while... I am just hoping that this means I'm pregnant! I will update you again if I know anything different!!

That was usually the indicator for me sore breast, it does take a while for the test to say positive how late are you?
