Every month breast tenderness and I think I'm pregnant
kgreske120 posted:
My husband and I have been trying to conceive our second child for about 4 months now. Last October, I got pregnant, we weren't trying, it was a surprise, but I miscarried after only a few days. I did not need an procedures, everything was able to pass normally since I wasn't that far along. I have never had breast tenderness when I would get my period my whole life. The only time I had very tender breasts was when I was pregnant with my son. It seems like since we have been trying, every month my breasts get tender and I start get a little hormonal and crave certain foods. I think I'm pregnant, and then I get my period and am disappointed. Am I just fooling my body? I have had people tell me that it could be period symptoms, but I never had symptoms like this with my period before the miscarriage. I am at a loss. Could I really be getting pregnant every month and losing it?
