what were your symptoms about a week before AF?

I am 8 days past Ovulation and my back hurts and I am pretty tired and crampy and have some ovarian pain. I never have this much back pain with my regular period and i am not this tired. Just gonna wait to see what happens. I have a feeling i am pregnant but really could be wrong so my question to you is what do you feel?

  • If not pregnant, I have really sore breasts about 6 dpo. Pregnant, I had sharp shooting pains down to my urethra. Thought I had a UTI. Then the day before AF, I started cramping. Felt like someone wrapped a steel rod around me and was tightening and loosening it. Really painful.

  • Back pain (neck stiff alot mostly), some times headaches, tired, nauseated, salty and sweet cravings. Usually when all this happens I am also super cranky and snap at people. I want to say bring it on already.

  • I had alot of cramping, bloating, mood swings, craving for chocolate, sore boobs but not too sore, lower back ache, nausea , everything that I get before AF, the only difference that made me think I was pregnant was because Im usually extremely hungry when Ima get AF & I wasnt hungry everything would make me gag, my mom had made salmon one day (& I LOVE her salmon) well the smell made me so sick & when I put some in my mouth I almost puked (not normal!!!) also I was VERY sleepy much more fatigue then when getting AF I would take a nap in the afternoon (I HATE taking naps!), & also I remember that I had some spottig one day I went to use the bathroom, I did # 1 & when I wiped there was 3 brown spots like dry blood, also I was crying for everything I would even cry & didnt know why I was crying lol, so I decided to test when I was 3 days late & got a BFP!!!.
