I'm still bf'ing so I haven't had to deal with waiting for my milk to dry up but I know the first day of engorgement is .... um... interesting. lol
They should stop hurting soon. I remember how happy I was when the pain finally completely disappeared but it left all this wonderful cleavage behind. I could really enjoy having boobs and cleavage for the first time then.
I think the first time mine stopped hurting right around the beginning of the 2nd trimester. Then by early in the 3rd trimester I started leaking colostrum. It can also be painful when your milk first comes in after the baby is born.
Mine have their moments. One minute I can't close my arms and the next, I am fine. I remember with the boys that they quit closer to the second trimester, but every pregnancy is different. My neighbor said hers were sore the entire she had her DD.
It's not just the soreness for me, although that part is pretty darn horrible. It's the itchiness. It's unbearable and now it's not just my boobs, it's my sides and my legs. I drench myself in lotion and it isn't doing any good. Argh.
