Wondering if any of you 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc.-time moms can weigh in on this...


I'm still nursing my 3-year-old 1-2 times a day. Also trying to conceive. With my daughter, intense breast tenderness, headache, and fatigue were the earliest signs of pregnancy...both kicked in before I missed a period. I'm now 12 dpo, feeling exhausted and headachy, but my boobs aren't swollen or sore at all. Pregnancy test is negative, too, but it's early.


Anyone experience achy boobs the first time around, but not with subsequent pregnancies while you were still nursing?


Thanks in advace...and good luck to all.

Hi, I don't have definite answer for you but wanted to tell you that I don't remember having achy boobs much when I was preggo while nursing with my previous children.  I'm in 3WW now with a nursling and no achy boobs or any symptoms (and neg. test so far).

I think it can vary pregnancy to pregnancy. If you don't have a + test yet the amount of hormone in your system will be slight enough that it won't necessarily cause all or any symptoms. I had sore bbs with #1, nothing with #2 and I eventually miscarried, #3 I thought my son had scraped me with his teeth while nursing and had a poor latch but it turned out I was pregnant with his sister. That wasn't until 14dpo though and it only lasted a couple days, went away, and came back between 10 & 12 weeks. Fingers crossed!

With my first pregnancy I had mega breast tenderness (I never really do with af or anything). Then in my second pregnancy, I was still nursing my first, and had none. So I think that's pretty normal.

Actually, I'm a joyful mom of three and counting! (I was a tad short-sighted when picking my username!) Married to DH since 2006, mom of DS (2007), DD (2009), DS2 (2012) and a new little one expected early May 2015!
