    Hello ladies, need some input.....

    Hubby and I trying for second child and my breasts have been really sore and tender since 2 DPO. It is now 8 DPO and they have been consistently tender, heavy, tingling etc.

    I should point out I have never had sore breasts after ovulation. Only about 5 days before period. So it's very unusual for me....

    I know according to medical science the embryo/placenta does not start producing hcg until after implantation (so 7 DPO-12 DPO approx.). I also know progesterone levels around ovulation time can cause breast tenderness regardless of pregnancy or not. However as I said I have never experienced this, and certainly not for a whole week!

    However I am asking purely from an anecdotal perspective....Did anyone have unusual breast tenderness from a few days past ovulation (before likely implantation), and go on to get a BFP?

    Thanks for your advice....!

    Congratulations Fairydust!

    Hmm that's interesting....as conventional medical wisdom says that you shouldn't get pregnancy symptoms including breast tenderness until after implantation.

    But some women who got BFPs report tenderness since only a few days DPO.

    Its just odd as they have been bugging me all week and it's never been this way before! I don't actually remember when my boobs started to get sore for my first pregnancy. Damn!

    Anyhow, thanks!

    Thank you I thought the same that's why I didn't read too much into it I thought they were just tender because I ovulated I was sure my AF was on her way I was so shocked it was a bfp

    Heyaa, I'm 5 weeks +2 now, just wanted to say breast tenderness was my first symptom, started a week before period was due at around 6 dpo I would guess which I thought was just an early period symptom but it never came :) I haven't got the tingling or anything yet, they just feel heavy, firm and sore! But from was I hear the tingling is a good sign too ^^

    Wishing you luck and baby dust x

    Breast tenderness was my first real symptom and began around 7-8 DPO. This was no normal pre-menstrual tenderness though, this was excruciating can't-even-touch-them tenderness.

    Good luck!

    Thanks all. So it seems it is possible to get breast soreness so early on, even possibly before implantation, despite what the books say.

    Well heres hoping. They are still sort of stinging and painful when my LO puts her head against. Only another week to go before I can test....oh time goes so slowly :)

    Thanks for the input guys. So it's possible to get sore breasts even only a few days past ovulation. I swear they are bigger too, increased blood supply I imagine.

    Oooh and in an interesting development I started to get a pinching, sharp stabbing feeling in my uterus (or where I imagine it is!) . It woke me up and it has been on and off all day. I remember it now, it's exactly the same as I felt with my LO, although at the time I didn't know it was implantation!

    So the signs look good, but theres no point testing until at least the weekend!

    It was my 1st symptom this time but I didn't think anything of it cause we weren't actually TTC that month lol so I thought it was just AF coming but it was about 4-5 days before AF was due and I knew something was up cause generally they are only sore 1-2 days before. And they are still sore now at 8 weeks :)
    Good luck I hope you get BFP! :dust:

    I normally get breast tenderness 4-5 days before AF, this time they were lightly tender starting at 5dpo, then around 10dpo they were like OW!! And they have not stopped since...I am afraid I am going to have the largest ta-ta's ever by full term :)
