AF / Preggo symptoms confusion
Wed, 09-26-2012 - 11:19am

I should start by saying I have never been regular, I had no symptoms at all when AF was about to arrive, I mean NONE at all! The only time I would get tender breasts was when preggo (4 times), so that was my #1 symptom.. For the past year I notice that around CD20-25 my breast get SUPER tender... I am on CD 24 and I woke up to constipation, tender breasts, mild nausea and cramping. It is so confusing! Has anyone had a change in their AF pattern since their 40's. Just wondering

Bonnie, I so wish you were still temping so we could have an idea where you are in the cycle. I don't remember having burning tender boobs  during my cycles unless I was pregnant, until the last year or so. Now I would hate to try and predict AF or the length of a cycle. I have to chart and even last month couldn't tell what was going on. Wishing you luck. Hoping all those are good symptoms.
