I have had some strange pregnancy symptoms this month, and I have been joking all month that "If my boobs were sore, I would think I was pregnant" My boobs hurt before I found out I was pregnant the first time.

..and now I'm a couple of days late :

I have decided that if AF still isn't here by the end of the weekend, I will test, but for now, I just keep telling myself that "pfft - your boobs aren't sore, there's nothing to worry about" but then I realize they may have just been numbed by nursing my daughter for 18 months :P

so have any of you found out you were pregnant without sore boobs?

I haven't had sore boobs this time until the past week when my milk dried up (I'm still nursing) and I'm 22 weeks along as of tomorrow : I don't remember having sore boobs with dd until my 2nd trimester either...

love and peace.

I couldn't stop crying. I mean, you would have thought that someone had just died. I got sore breasts soon after, but it was the inconsolable weeping that tipped me off and made me test. It made for some rather embarrassing commutes on the subway (although I always got offered a seat when I cried like that! )

Thanks ladies! I have had that unusual crackling/cramping/zapping feeling in my uterus area and my last period was a week early, very strange and very short. I have also had INSATIABLE hunger - which is very unusual for me.

I just haven't had any breast-related symptoms - they are still two flat little pancakes - not the least bit sore or swollen.

Hmm, it will be interesting to see though...

...keep the stories coming!!!

Mine were incredibly sore during my first pregnancy (I couldn't even hug my husband too tight!) and the second time around they didn't even tingle.

Actually because my boobs weren't sore and the lack of "monthly" growth tipped me off. I think when I finally observed that and the took stock of my other symps was when I decided it might be time to test. I found out when I was all of 3 and a half weeks pregnant. Good luck.. hope you have the outcome you desire!

I don't remember any pain with my first two pregnancies. I did have it with this one and with my miscarriage last year. I knew I was pregnant this time because my dreams were so vivid, and I was remembering them.

I forgot to mention that it was my weird food cravings that tipped us off with dd... this time I had implantation spotting/cramping (that was recognizable because I'd had it before) and so I tested...

love and peace.

With this current pregnancy, I didn't have them at first because I tested so early I hadn't had any pregnancy symptoms yet. The symptoms didn't hit me until about 5-6 weeks along.

yep. I had sore boobs my first two pregnancy's before I could pass a test, but this time around nothing in the boob department until seven or eight weeks and even then it was mild..I didn't believe i was pregnant bc of the missing boob pain.

My tip-off that I might have been pregnant is that my boobs weren't sore a week before AF like they usually are. And I was insatiably hungry, just like you describe.

I'm 5 wks now and they are starting to get a little sore but not too bad...similar to my monthly symptoms.

Thank you for posting this, it is giving me hope! I was pregnant about 3 months ago and lost the baby. The doctors say I am good to go and everything looks perfect, so I am okay to try again. When I found out I was pregnant that time, it was actually the sore boobs and weird cramping that tipped me off. This month, I have all these weird strange symptoms that I had before EXCEPT the sore breasts and nipples. I have the strange cramping, the nausea, vivid dreams, hot flashes, and small other things. I love reading the comments and hearing it is possible. I have 6 more days until my period is due. PRAYING for good news. I want that BFP.

This is my 8th pregnancy, and I've *never* had sore boobs. It's not a thing for me.

I'm 6 weeks p/g with # 2 and don't have sore breasts - not many symptoms other than tiredness and funny taste in my mouth.

With p/g # 1 I did have sore breasts, but I also had sore breasts just before my period - and when my period returned a few months back I never had sore breasts. I'm bf my toddler so maybe this impacts the hormones??

I did have sore breasts with DD1 but not DD2 and DS because I was nursing the toddler.  It is a plus for sure!

I never had them. This thread is like 6 years old. I wonder if the OP really was pregnant.
