When you experienced breast tenderness during early pregnancy was it at any specific place on the breast or can it be?

The back sides of my breast, like almost under my arm pits but not quite that far back, is really sore. Touching that part is so feels like I have bruises on in that spot on both breasts.

I'm 18 DPO...could this be from early prengnacy?

Trying not to get my hopes up....HPTs have not been clear and I'm waiting until Saturday to test again.

  • Like Steph, mine was in my nipples and was really the first symptom I had of pregnancy.

  • My nipples have been a little sensitive but I'm breastfeeding so I think that could possibly "desensitize" them a bit because my body already has the prolactin hormone.

    My breast didn't really hurt with him and I remember them hurting REALLY bad with my DD but I can't remember exactly where they hurt.

  • I had pain in the part of my breasts right near my underarms. It hurt to move my arms sometimes.

  • My whole breast hurts when I am pregnant, just a lite touch can make me want to punch someone for touching them including myself for.

  • all around my breast was very sensitive and grew... that was the sign that lead me to taking a test and found out i was prego... cause my breast never felt that way before.
