Definite pins and needles for me, just on the border of being painful.
And interestingly, about 2 days before we BD'd and conceived, when I was absolutely NOT pregnant (we hadn't been intimate in about a year as we got ready for our wedding and I was so stressed about not fitting into my gown I wouldn't let him near me, LOL), I was at Target and heard a baby cry, and my breasts felt JUST like that. 40+ weeks later after I had DS and my milk started to come in and then I experienced the letdown feeling, it felt EXACTLY the same as that day.
I told my maid of honor who was with me at Target "omg that baby crying made me feel like milk just came in" and she scoffed at me since I'd never been pg and wasn't pg at the time. But it was exactly what it felt like. Spooky....
