They are similar: Early pregnancy can have nearly identical symptoms to PMS, even the mild cramping. Some people report that their breasts are even more tender when pregnant . Some people report greater fatigue during early pregnancy as opposed to PMS The early symptoms are similar that only a pregnancy test can tell you for sure

No : No. Pms is usually in last two weeks of the menstrual cycle. Pregnancy wouldn't be apparent until you have missed your cycle.

Technically Yes: But you can still feel the same symptoms even if you aren't pregnant. Pregnancy symptoms can literally be the same as pms symptoms. Best wishes.

If you only have PMS symptoms during the week of your expected period and no other time could that mean pregnancy?

Pregnancy: If you are worried about being pregnant the best way to find out is to take a home pregnancy test. Pms symptoms are just that premenstrual, they are supposed to happen before your period. Take care!
