In the early stages of pregnancy is it normal for your breasts to become tender and then become progressively less tender a couple days later?
Hello I am 4 DPO & starting yesterday, my nipples have been constantly hard and very tender to touch. Could this be an early pregnancy sign?
Too soon to know:
Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex.

7 days past ovulation, why do I feel pressure on my left ovary and tender nipples is it too early to be pregnant? When should I take a pregnancy test
Hormones are high: A week after you ovulate, your Progesterone is peaking and your estrogen is also quite high. These can cause breast tenderness. The corpus luteum, the gland that is made where ovulation occurs, can be large and can cause ovarian pain. It's too early to detect pregnancy, and it's too early for your symptoms to be from pregnancy. Do a pregnancy test when you would normally start your period. ...Read more

Low grade fever can be a sign of early pregnancy. Not everyone experiences this, so to answer your question, yes you can be pregnant and not have a low grade fever.
On the other hand low grade fever, especially if it lasts for a while, may may a sign of an infection. If this is the case (prolonged fever) you should inform your doctor right away.
