  • because they are preparing to change... just like the rest of your body. they will grow, milk IS forming

  • Your breasts are hurting because your estrogen levels are elevated. I had this with both my kids. Dont worry it is normal. They might also feel a bit swollen. the glands that produce milk for your baby are also being more stimulated and developed. I found that a warm moist towel across my breasts helped.
