In brief: PMS
Premenstrual syndrome can involve a variety of symptoms, including breast tenderness, nausea, diarrhea, cramps, and many others.
The thought is the significant hormone changes that are occuring that will lead to having a period. So, yes, this can be normal but if there are new changes or concerns you should seek the care of your personal physician to evaluate.
