Some women claim to have symptoms that soon but most women don't start having symptoms until they've at least missed a period.

I am in your boat. AF isnt due until end of this month but my back aches, I'm tired, and my appetite has increased dramatically. I have the pregnancy "intuition" but I don't want to think too much about it yet because I don't want to get my hopes up and be let down. Good luck with your situation!!! Waiting is so hard!

PMS symptoms and early pregnancy symptoms are almost identical so going by symptoms alone is no way to judge wether you are or are not pregnant. The only symptom that is a good indication of possibly being pregnant is missing a period and even that you have to confirm by having a positive pregnancy test.
So until you miss your period and then have a positive pregnancy test then you are just guessing. So wait and see, if you miss your period when it's due by more than 2-7 days then take a test with 1st morning urine.
Best of luck.
