Hi Mamas,<br><br>
I'm 20 weeks pregnant and still nursing my beautiful 22 month old. I haven't had any problems with nursing while pregnant so far until today when the pain got pretty bad. I've also noticed that my breasts have gotten a lot bigger in the last few days so could my milk be changing over to collostrum? I can easily hand express so my milk hasn't dried up. I shortened our nursing sessions today because the pain got intense <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> He's not even close to ready to wean and I'm not ready to wean him! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> Will this get better???

Hi Aley!<br>
First of all, sorry...I can't answer your question. Some moms never experience pain, some experience pain the entire pregnancy, some only for part of the pregnancy. If I had to guess, I'd say that it could be a hormone surge, or a change in your breasts/breastmilk, and that it may go away in a few days/weeks. I hope it does!!!<br>
Secondly...20 weeks? Already? Wow!<br>
Third...when is it my turn? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"><br>
If you ever need to talk/gripe/ask questions, go out, come over and play, etc. feel free to call!<br><br>
Oh...and pick up a copy of Adventures in Tandem Nursing (or do you already have it?) ... there is some good info in there (p 50-53).
