Could this be pregnancy or just PMS?

Okay so for the past week and a half or 2 weeks my breasts have been really sore and I noticed that my bra hasn't been fitting right either and have had to switch from a D size to a DD. I've also been moody and had some nausea and low back pain as well as headaches. We use the pull out method instead of relying on the pill (since my daughter was concieved while i was on the pill) and we've been doing that for 6 years now with no pregnancy. My period is due around the 14th or 15th so it's not far off so I don't know if it's PMS or if I could be pregnant. Headaches and low back pain are usual for my period but the nausea, breast pain and swelling has never happened with my period before.

I'm also hesitant about taking at home pregnancy test (especially taking one early) because with my daughter they had to do 3 blood tests just to confirm I was pregnant with her and that was 2 weeks after I missed my period.

Any advice is well and truly appreciated.

the symptoms could indicate either or. I'd take the home test on the first day of your missed period and if its negative n you still have no period 2-3 weeks later see your GP. If you've had prior difficulty in detecting pregnancy they might test you again a couple of weeks after, or send you for an ultrasound. good luck!
