Hi ladies I thought I would ask here since most of you (probably all of you) are further along..
Boob pain was one of my first symptoms before getting my BFP. And they still feel heavy and hurt. Will this stop at some point? It is getting really bad. It's not so bad during the day while I wear a bra but when I get home and change and take off the bra... ouch!
They are not big either (B cup)

By the 2nd tri, either mine had stopped hurting so bad, or I just stopped noticing it... LOL
Just wait until your nipples start leaking and it hurts to take off your bra. The boob pains never end girlie, they just change! LOL
Man, I'm all over the bad news for you today Luckily the heaviness will subside, and your DH WILL eventually get to touch them again without you screaming. I think it happened for me right around 12 weeks (they were still sore at 10), but I went up 2 cup sizes already so it may have lasted longer for me than it does for other girls.
Hope your boobs feel better soon! (Gee, how often do you say THAT to someone? LOL)
Big huge hugz and thanks to tasha_mae for my beautiful siggy!
Girl, they will hurt and change from this day forward. Mine hurt in stages throughout the pregnancy. The first 9 weeks or so they hurt off and on, didn't hurt a whole lot until the 3rd trimester. Sleeping in a comfy sports bra helped me a lot. Everyone is different of course, but the breats pain is simply your body getting your boobs ready to produce milk. It's so complex that they start preparing the moment you become pregnant. Don't worry, they will mellow out eventually!
Mine have hurt from the very beginning as well. I sleep in a "sleep bra" (i think mine are from Medela) so i am rarely without some kind of support. I am hoping the pain will subside once I am out of the first trimester but they definitely still feel heavy and sensitive.
Thanks Chelsea (GraysMama) for my fantastic signature!
You know, after experiencing the pain of engorgement and the toughening process that happens to your nipples once the baby starts gumming them with their hard gums and then teeth, I honestly don't remember Good news is, by the time baby is Jack's age and has already gotten some teeth, there is no pain! Unless you get engorged, which only happens rarely at this point. So I guess I agree that the pain in one form or another stops when the baby is around 6 -7 months old. At least, that is how it went for me! lol Sorry
My nipples used to hurt, then it stopped hurting altogether (which made me paranoid). Now I'm in 2nd trimester and they're hurting again and leaking a little bit. They feel so heavy! I'm too lazy to go buy new bras but I need to, because I am busting out of these!!
Yeah they hurt for most of the first tri, I always just changed into a sports bra when I got home. But mine didn't start hurting for a few weeks after my bfp either so maybe yours won't hurt that long? I'm hoping for you!
Thank you Quantum_Leap for the gorgeous siggy!!
I'm currently 22 weeks and I still have sore boobs! It isn't always as bad as it was in the very beginning, but because they are constantly growing, they are going to be sore majority of the time! You'll eventually just get used to it tho!
Blessed Mommy to Fisher and baby#2 Hunter on his way
Yeah, Judy, I highly recommend a sleeping bra of some sort. I got one at Motherhood when I went bra shopping. But I have found that a snug sports bra works even better 'cause it holds the girls still when I toss and turn, which really hurts otherwise. It makes a world of difference.
