Help! I am 31 weeks pregnant with baby 1. I woke up in the middle of last night with my left breast in SO much pain. This has continued through the day (tried hot compresses), to the point where it hurts to move my left arm. I *think* I can feel a tiny lump near my nipple, but I'm not sure.<br><br>
I can't call my midwife until Tuesday (well, I could, but I don't think this is an emergency!). Anyone have any experience with this or ideas? I don't have a fever or any other weird symptoms.<br><br>
Thanks ladies!

Although it's rare so women do get plugged ducts or mastitis when pregnant. Check your bra to make sure that it isn't too tight or cutting in somewhere. If you wear underwires, try switching to a bra without. Some women even have issues with the way they sleep--too much pressure in one spot and it causes a blocked duct. Hope you feel better soon and definitley ask your midwife. That's what she is there for!
