How far along are you? MY nipples were actually more sensitive when I first suspected I might be pregnant. Now they aren't that sensitive, still but more tolerable. I thought maybe because she nurses so much there isn't that much of a change to the breasts/ducts if I would be not nursing so much or not at all. They don't feel full really. Hanging a little lower ; ) and a little bit darker (aerola, plus it is larger) I am very early in the pg.... just found out. Very early. I am like 17dpo(days past ovulation) at this point. I am also 44yrs old(I got pg when I WAS 43!) I am thinking maybe it is because I am going to mc?
Just wondering if anyone had any experience with nursing and not so sore nipples, breasts if child is nursing tons?
I think I O'ed on June 9, so I am... about as far along as can be and still have a March EDD. I am (and since O, have been) only sore right at latch-on and that's it... I have darker nipples, too. Other than that, no difference from before. From what I've read, I think it's common for the most painful nursing to be later on in the pregnancy, when the milk starts to dry up, so I am not sure I would worry too much about "ease" of bf now being an indicator of mc. But that's just my take, and I haven't been through this before.
Congrats on your BFP!
ETA: Re-reading this thread, I see lots of variations - Brisen had no pain, Full Heart had pain in 1st trimester only... seems highly individual.
