Readers Respond: How did you cope with breast pain in pregnancy?

Responses: 26


Updated November 21, 2010

In pregnancy you can experience breast pain from early on. You might have sore, aching breasts, tender nipples or even leaking from the breast. It's all normal. But the key is that if you're in pain, you want a way to deal with it. The breast changes are the body's way of preparing for breastfeeding. You might try a different bra, wear breast pads or something else. What was your way of coping with breast pain in pregnancy? Share Your Experience

Signs of (early)Pregnancy

Its been only 2 1/2 weeks since the first time of intercourse. Based on ovulation and fertile days about only 2 weeks and my signs are as follow; tender sore breast specially when wearing a bra and in the early morning, Leaking Colostrum (clear/white fluid from nipple when squeezed) , Had cramping on the left side one day, and lots of bloating the next three days. I have noticed I intend to eat more now than usual, but that may just be psychological. =) I have not taken a pregnancy test yet, I plan to in about 1 more week. I do have an 8 year old daughter, so I'm almost positive lord willing first that I currently am. Hope this helps some of you as I've searched different sites for convincing.
