HI ladies! This is my first time visiting this forum but I have been posting in P&BL since August 2005. As of today, I am 5 days late so I decided to take a HPT. I did't splurge and only purchased the $1 store one but after taking it I feel a strong need to purchase an EPT. It was <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/pos.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="positive"> but the test line was really faint. I tested this afternoon eventhough the test recommended to test early morning but stated it's not required.<br><br>
My breasts are slightly tender and other than that I don't have other symptoms. Does anyone know if breastfeeding affects the tenderness of your breasts? My breasts were always soooo sore with both pregnancies and this is the second pregnancy for me while breastfeeding. My 3rd pregnancy ended in mc at 8.4 weeks. The results of that test were faint as well so I haven't let myself become overly excited at the positive test results just yet.

Hi mama,<br>
I'm pretty sure that everyone here would say a positive is a positive. So Congrats!!! Hope everything goes well...<br><br>
Not sure about the breastfeeding thing though... Haven't had the chance...<br><br>

Thanks mimi n tre! I am pregnant! I took two more HPT's and there was no denying those results. I am so guarded with my emotions right now but also want to hold on to the hope that this pregnancy will hold.<br><br>
Does anyone know if breastfeeding affects the tenderness of your breasts? I have no other pregnancy symptoms so I am hesitant to allow myself to become overly excited and "attached". With my first 2 pregnancies, I experienced morning sickness starting at 6 weeks so I guess I'll know more by then.

First of all, congratulations!!!<br><br>
I lost a little one to miscarriage a few years ago and my two subsequent pregnancies have been a bit of an emotional rollercoaster as a result. I too am breastfeeding and have noticed that my breasts aren't as sore this time around. And even with my lactation training I was still a bit nervous at first!<br><br>
But yes, logically I know that it can affect breast soreness. I mean, a lot of the work is already done. You're already lactating! It's just a matter of switching the milk over to new baby milk (colostrum) again. Once a woman stops breastfeeding and her breasts are no longer producing any milk, they have a lot more work to do in order to get back into milk making. Make sense? I hope so <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Anyway, my breasts have been far less sore this time than with my two boys. But they have begun to hurt more and more - on and off - as the first trimester progresses. I'll be 10 weeks tomorrow and believe me, I feel pregnant! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Congrats again! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">
