    Early signs of pregnancy: #3

    Breast Tenderness
    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.

  • YES it is a sign, but I have to tell you that just like all signs/symptoms of pregnancy not every woman gets every symptom and likewise, not every woman gets the same signs/symptoms with each of their pregnancies.

    Me for instance, I didn't have ANY signs/symptoms with my first, no breast tenderness, no morning sickness, no nothing, I even had a period for 5 months.

    With my second however within days of conception my breast were so flippin tender it wasn't even funny, MILD tenderness my A%&....I was so ULTRA sensitive especially around the nipple. Just having a bra on, or worse yet, no bra and then having my shirt touch them was excrutiating.

    But, just like with anything, sore nipples could also be a sign/symptom of other things as well...not just pregnancy.

    Best of luck,

  • yes, they could be a sign of pregnancy, however they could also be a sign of a number of other things too, such as ovulation, period is coming, growth of your boobs, etc etc etc.
