Or is it just me?

It's typically during the night/early morning, I wake up and my boobs are really sore to the touch. Or, if I've rolled over onto my tummy in the middle of the night, I wake up and my boobs are killing me!

I've never been the type to have sensitive boobs, so this is pretty strange for me, lol. And it may be all in my head, but I SWEAR they're bigger, too. Is that even possible at 6 weeks, 4 days?

Yes, it is possible and very real! Mine have hurt from the beginning. Some days/times they feel more sore than others. They definitely are bigger than before and swollen a tad. DH is normally a boob man and its been hard for him to not squeeze on 'em like usual.

My Boops are hurting since the beginning. I already bought new bras, with larger cup sizes, which made my life soo much better. I also wear sports bras at night and since then my boops feel less soar. I still can't lay on them and my husband can't touch them as much, but it is better now.

Same story here. With dd I felt pregnant in my boobs before anything. Last week I noticed my boobs getting bigger, then starting to hurt and that's why I tested on Saturday.

Pretty handy pregnancy-alert system!

Yes! I'm actually ok with it, since its a good sign! I don't sleep with a top on though so sometimes in the middle of the night I roll on them and that hurts pretty bad. They are very heavy and swollen too.

I've always told my men, if you're up there it's for you cuz it does nothing for me!

BUT THE PAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!

The cats and I are currently re-negotiating loving time. If they get their paws anywhere near my boobies right now I tend to instinctively ball up.

I cannot IMAGINE trying to BF right now.

They aren't super sore, but they are definitely very tingly.

Not as sore or swollen with my first pregnancy, but I'm attributing it to the fact that I'm currently breastfeeding.

With Carter I was up a cup size by 7 weeks.

Mine are very sore...some days are worse than others and it's usually worse at night and first thing in the morning. Nursing an acrobatic 2 yr old is definately challenging sometimes and the initial latch sometimes makes me cringe...thankfully it subsides and becomes more tolerable after a short time.

Do you find it different from the soreness of your first pregnancy? I do.

The initial latch has definitely made me cringe. And my nipples hurt constantly. This time the pain seems more nipple centered, as opposed to my whole breast like last time.

The other thing is, I can feel letdowns all of a sudden, after months of not feeling them. It was one of my first "symptoms".

I notice a big difference between this and my pregnancy with ds. I also feel let down, even when I'm not nursing sometimes. My nipples are VERY sensitive.

Today I told ds that my breasts were very sore and implored him to latch with his mouth opened very wide, so now he's attaching to the breast with the funniest expression I've seen him make.

Very sore, very sensitive, and I put on a bathing suit the other day and looked down at my cleavage thinking, "I swear there's more here than there used to be."

Those of you still nursing, you have my sympathies. OUCH!
