View Full Version : Q for BTDT moms about boobs
03-19-2012, 08:22 AM
So, I have noticed that my boobs feel/hurt differently. Before it was very surface pain... like to barely touch them hurt on the surface and the nipples. Now it is deeper inside my breast, like in the tissue itself. Normal? Does there come a point when it stops hurting altogether?
I don't remember my boobs hurting at all with my first pregnancy...

That's what it was like for me when I was pregnant with my DS. I think it's completely normal. It went away after about 10 weeks (I think around there...). This time around I never really had sore boobs at all! (and gosh darn they barely grew with either of them :laugh:)

I've have/had that. Mine changes from deep tissue hurting to more surface irritation hurting. It's weird but for me it's mainly been the deeper tissue hurting/sore. Honestly mine this time around have adjusted so much better. They bothered me in the beginning and have only begun bothering me again lately.

Mine hasn't gone away but I got a few extra hormones, lol. With Mason it did ease up by second trimester.

I have breastfed at the beginning of 3 out of my 4 pregnancies, so it's always tough for me to figure out which part of the pain is the new growth that my body is doing for the new baby and which part is the breastfeeding itself. I think in general I have experienced more nipple pain in the first few weeks, then deeper pain as the breasts are re-preparing for "hard core lactation" after being used for only 1-2 feedings a day. Was that helpful at all? I think the deep pain stops around the end of the 1st trimester, and then I get mega huge at the end and there is some pain again then, but not as bad.

Totally normal. For me, the discomfort went away with 2nd tri. As long as I have a good supportive bra, they really haven't begun bothering me again yet (29 weeks).

Yep normal and yes it should go away mid-2nd trimester. My boobs still hurt at the end of the day but they are just HUGE.

Both types of pain are normal. Mine hurt for all of my first two pregnancies (from day one) but I never hurt with my third pregnancy at all even though everything was fine until sometime after 9 weeks.
