Hi Elizabeth - During my last cycle, I had at least a dozen symptoms that mimicked PG symptoms. Didn't have sore boobs, but did have a lot of nausea, pains, extreme fatigue early in the day, an elevated temp, loss of appetite, gas, etc.

In my case, I know it wasn't psychosomatic. Something was off with my body. Just had an appt. with my doc. to talk about my abnormal/funky last menses and all of those symptoms that I had. She's going to run some blood work, but her sense of what I told her is that if not a cyst, I may have had some kind of funky gastritis thing going on.

Oh yeah. Every month when I enter the 2WW I google early pregnancy symptoms to see if I'm feeling anything. Keep in mind that I know exactly what they are, so why research it every month? I guess to renew hope. This month I'm convinced my boobs are sore. All day I push them in to see if it feels more sore. I'm probably causing soreness from all the contorting. :) Oh well, we have to hold on to any shred of hope we can, right? TTC makes us stupid and crazy!!!!
