Signs of Early Pregnancy – Breast Tenderness

August 11, 2009

Today it’s 11dp3dt. My boots and nipple started to feel sore and sensitive. Is it a good sign? Hopefully.

One of the very noticeable early signs of pregnancy is tender, swollen, somewhat sore breasts. You may notice this pregnancy sign at bedtime when you are trying to get comfortable and go to sleep, when exercising or showering, or when getting dressed.

When you become pregnant, your body begins preparing your breasts for producing milk and breastfeeding. Hormones start increasing. In addition to breast tenderness and swelling, your nipples may feel sore or extra sensitive. Some women notice their nipples darken in color.

Your breasts play an important role in childbirth. They are naturally sensitive and become far more so when pregnant. This is one of the most obvious early symptoms of pregnancy.

    I had sore nipples when i did my IVF but I didn’t get pregnant … those IVF drugs might give us this symptoms too.
