Reasons for sore boobs?

I know I need to wait and test, but it's late, my mind is working ott and I just want a chat!
I never have sore boobs before my period but this week they are KILLING me! Nipples are on fire and the slightest touch makes me gasp or wince in pain.
I'm due on this week so I know it's a matter of waiting, but is it likely that I've suddenly developed a new pre period symptom? I'm 27 so I'm pretty regular to symptoms etc.
I had an ectopic last year so I know I'm just over thinking and worrying too soon grin

Sore boobs were the reason I did a pregnancy test !

Tender boobs and nipples can be an early sign of pregnancy, but the problem is that the early signs of pregnancy are very similar to the signs that your period is on the way. This is due to it all being controlled by the same hormones.

My boobs never became sore before a period up until last year when the nipples randomly started feeling like someone had clipped a peg to them! (I'm 26)

Thanks all. I know it's too early to test so I'm going to have to hang on for a bit. I'm really not good with patience!!

I have a DS Age 6 and never got sore boobs with him. Few weeks ago my boobs started butching, couldn't stand taking my bra off... I wanted to cry. Nipped really sensitive!!
Found out last week I am pregnant.
Good luck hun. Xx

I'm nearly 19 weeks pregnant - sore boobs were my first symptom. I had them over a week before my period was due. I do usually get this before period but only a day or so before. They were so sore I had to wear a sports bra to work / to sleep. I got a positive test about 4 days after the symptoms started.

I'm away now so I'm waiting til I get home to test. I don't fancy trying to communicate pg tests in French grin that and I usually buy £1 world ones, so I'm too tight to shell out more than 2 euros haha! It's early but no signs of af and soreness continues. Also evening nausea but that could also be sheer mountain of food being consumed hmm will update when I eventually test incase anyone's on the edge of their seats....I'd recommend sitting back, it'll be a long few days for us both!

I have never had sensitive boobs pre-period so I knew it must be a pregnancy sign. Used to prod them in bed and be amazed by how much it hurt. Fingers crossed it results in a positive test for you.

Ooo! Where abouts in la belle France have you gone? Honfluer is one of my favs ;)

Best of luck to you xxx
