I'm 28 weeks, and have been experiencing some leaking on and off since 18 weeks. This is my first pregnancy that made it past first trimester.
I had the typical sore breasts up until around 13 weeks or so, and they've been fuller but painless since. Now, all of a sudden, I'm getting random shocks of pain through each breast. It's not accompanied by any other pain, nor with leaking.
Is this normal? Just a part of the whole getting-ready-for-baby thing?
I've been getting these occasionally but worse than ever over the last week or so. I figured it was just the milk production cranking up a notch as the pain seems to be centred around the nipple and my breasts always feel very full and heavy when it happens!
I got this yesterday. I've never had it before and it was only in my right breast. It completely took me by surprise. I don't know anything about it but I haven't had it since. Completely baffled lol xx
I had that too, my midwife says it's just a normal part of your boobs gearing up for milk production. Really unpleasant though! It's the only time I've touched myself up in public and not given a crap about what people thought
I've had this plus just aching breasts in general. Sometimes the pain really does take my breath away. I have to massage my breasts too just to get some relief. Happened in the post office the other day... not a great place to have to touch your breasts in public! Anyone have any other remedies that might help? Or do they know when the pain goes away?x
I was getting this too and it seems to have calmed down in the last week and suddenly my boobs have ballooned!!! Based on that, I would say its just your boobs getting ready. I too found rubbing them really helped and (apologies for the TMI) squeezing a little colostrum out of my nipples. I know that they recommend using a certain cabbage leaf to ease them when breastfeeding and warm flannels- that might help?
