I am 28 weeks pregnant today and my breasts are so amazingly swollen. I can't find any way to relieve the pain. Is there anything I can do?

  • Try and Ice Pack, that should help with some of the symptoms. Also I've heard that Cabbage leaves are good for women who are engourged with milk, maybe try that

  • Heating pad, hot shower, cold packs, cabbage leaves. Obviously you will have to test the waters to see if hot or cold relieves your pain... Good luck!

  • I used a heating pad, or hot shower, or even a hot bath, and let your boobs get all the heat. Sorry you are hurting...I hope you can find some relief soon.

  • Cold Really Helped with me but it was more that my nipples hurt not my actual breasts. I also took notice that having a bra on actually helped!
