sore nipples suddenly not sore anymore. scared.

i've had sore nipples since about 8dpo, and the past week they have been really sore, but suddenly last night they started feeling better and they are barely sore today. i'm starting to freak out. when i miscarried in january i suddenly lost my pregnancy symptoms, and i'm so scared that it's happening again. i still have to pee all the time, and this morning started feeling nauseous for the first time, so i still have symptoms. i've just been so scared of losing this baby, and worrying about everything. i need some reassurance from other mamas. could the soreness be going away because of nursing my daughter and the nipples have just adjusted? does it just not last as long with a second pregnancy? with my first they were sore the whole first trimester, but right now i'm only 4.5 weeks. thanks for any replies.

For me, the breast symptoms have more and less intense days. Some days I'm overwhelmed by the discomfort, while it doesn't even cross my mind on other days.

But I have also experienced a miscarriage and tend to get worried if I haven't felt symptoms for a couple of hours, or something else happens that reminds me of my previous miscarriage. I keep trying to remember that every pregnancy is different, and I'll feel different during each. Also, remembering to breath slowly and staying in the present has helped me tremendously.

thank you. i'm really trying not to freak over everything, but it's tough some days. good to hear the soreness can come and go.

Yes, same as mama above responded. Some days are VERY intensely sore to nurse and some days aren't too bad--at least in the very beginning. Now that I am in my 6th week it seems the soreness is pretty constant and getting to be quite overwhelming at the latch. I did have something like you describe though somewhere between week 4 and now though--like I actually thought the same thing as you--am I MC or just getting used to this? Then......BAM, back with an intensity!
