    HI Caylalynn,

    Yes, I think it's all normal...pms. For some women, the cramping, fatigue, emotional attitudes, breast tenderness, frequent urination, lower back aches, etc all starts around a week or so before a new cycle. Some women have it longer, some shorter, some none at all.

    I've learned that our cycles change and the symptoms of our cycle change as well. I didn't used to get tender breasts before my period 10 years ago, but now I do.

    Many women have experienced that the same symptoms they get before their period are the same symptoms they get during early pregnancy.

    Sometimes finding out we're pregnant is just a waiting game and sometimes we have an indicator or an "I-just-know" feeling.
