Why do my boobs feel full again?

I weaned my son 2 weeks ago after nursing for 11 months and I haven't felt engorged or full for about a week and a half but today they feel extra full and I don't know why. My husband and I are etc again im due for AF on sat is this a sign of pregnancy or did I start lactating again?

  • This usually happens if you've been nursing less. It's really hard to tell if it's a pregnancy symptom since you've been recently nursing... Maybe keep an eye out for any other symptoms?

  • You have milk for as long as a year after weaning. It probably has nothing at all to do with your attempts to conceive; your body thinks it should still be feeding a child.

  • It could very well be from weaning.
    But when I was pregnant with my second, I knew within days of concieving, because my boobs felt like they did last time I was bfing. I say, you could very well be pregnant.
