Breast tenderness, symptom of pregnancy

Is breast tenderness a sign of pregnancy?

Sore breasts and nipples are a common complaint in early pregnancy. During the first eight weeks of pregnancy the breasts, nipples and areola enlarge. Sometimes quite dramatically. The areola may darken in color. Some women describe a tingling sensation. Others may feel fullness in their breasts along with breast tenderness.

Other symptoms of pregnancy

Other symptoms of pregnancy include a missed period, nausea and vomiting, better known as morning sickness, and urinary frequency. Some women experience breast tenderness as part of premenstrual syndrome, PMS. A pregnancy test is the best way to confirm pregnancy.
