I'm not due for another few weeks, but...i'm craving chocolate like CRAZY, i'm constipated, i've been STARVING all day and I yelled at Eppy's Dungeon Master for no reason. Either I'm getting my period, or it's going to be two weeks of awesome PMS. can't wait to find out!

lower back pain that i now confuse as a kidney stone warning sign, sleepy sleepiness, and i react to my students not doing their homework like they've just committed a crime against humanity.

I used to get the occasional "Huh, I can't be PMSing already" and eventually figured out it was ovulation-related. I half-arsedly chart (not that you can call it that if you don't write anything down) so I'll know when my period will turn up. I usually get a headache a few days before anyway and about a week before my blood pressure goes wacky and I see stars when I get up too quickly.

a few days out i start to get winded ridiculously easily doing routine things that aren't at all intensive, like walking up the stairs to leave the subway, which i do twice a day almost every day with no problem. it's like all the blood in my body hunkers down in my uterus and refuses to supply oxygen to any other parts of my body. and EVERYTHING makes me cry. and i can't fall asleep until 5:00 in the morning. and sometimes i stay in the apartment all day and eat an entire large pizza. but the second my period actually starts, everything goes back to normal.

I know it's a couple days away when my bras are all suddenly two sizes too small. And sometimes I cry, usually the day before.

I start to crave salt about a week before mine starts. I want to put it on absolutely everything. Or maybe not even on anything at all, just directly into my mouth.

Achy tits. Cramps that wake me up in the middle of the night. Fighting on the internet.

When I suddenly start feeling thin again after the bloat from the last period went away. Then I know it's coming.

It's as if the brownies sprang forth from your uterus. Sorry, now you will never eat another brownie again.

Acne, thoughts like "I wonder if I'm pregnant," and lower back pain like a bloody dam's about to break. I used to expect the whole crying thing, but with my depression, that's not a very good indicator.

Sore breasts, exquisite and wholly unnecessary tenderness/empathy (sobbing at greeting card commercials, getting totally emotionally involved in teen dramas, hyperventilating over Petfinder, etc.), all-encompassing obsession with salt/chocolate combo, yearning to get back in touch with horrible people I used to know, oversharing personal information on the internet.

Until I went on BC, I used to get cramps for a good week and a half before my period, and much more frequent migraines. Alas, all the other signs have stayed the same.

The week before my period is always spice-sex-sugar week. I turn into a complete mad woman this week as well, probably because I'm totally preoccupied with finding things to fullfill my cravings.

Sore breasts and cravings (salt/chocolate).

I get the farts even worse than usual. I like to make everyone around me miserable, so I'll eat lots of soy curls to exacerbate the problem.

Also, I get really happy and snuggly unless someone crosses me. This is the wrong time to pick a fight with me because not only will I fart in retaliation, I'll will probably tell you to "Shut up! Don't talk to me right now! Get forked!" and then cry because nobody understands me.

Physical signs- Breakouts on my forehead, cramps, TOTAL exhaustion, nonstop food cravings, always feeling like I need to poo and having savage cramps.

I have the opposite of PMS. I just want to hug everyone and cry because the world is so beautiful. Then, my period comes and I will saw your head off if you look at me the wrong way.

I get emotional, but lately that's all the time (yay stress!). Other than that, the only way I ever know if it's coming is literally 30 minutes before the gush my uterus gets all warm and very slightly crampy. Gross.

eta: Oh but I ALWAYS know when I ovulate (And therefor know my period is 12-14 days away). It is a little pinprick in one side of my abdomen for about an hour right in the middle of a cycle. Totally cool!

i can't tell if my farts are a sign of impending menses or just a byproduct of my daily life.
my boobs don't hurt that much but, then again, they're not that big. i feel like that has something to do with it. it's not scientific, but i have my period so WHATEVER.

salt, yes. anything that gets near my mouth, yes. that also goes away when the floodgates open, which is a good thing because then i also have to poop about 87 times a day for the first couple days.
