Q&A: Why aren't my boobs sore anymore?

When I first found out I was pregnant my boobs were so incredibly sore! I'm 12 weeks pregnant now and they barely hurt and all, and feel the same size they've always been. Should I be nervous of a miscarriage since I've had one before? I still have the "morning" sickness and everything else. Do boobs always hurt during pregnancy?

The Bump Expert

Chalk it up to the hormones. Blood flow to the breasts increases dramatically during the first eight weeks of pregnancy, and this can lead to pain, heaviness and tingling. The pain generally gets better by the second trimester, although you may notice that your breasts are still sore from time to time. Everything you describe is normal!

re: Q: Soreness improving -- miscarriage?

That is so funny. I woke up this morning and felt weirded out that my boobs weren't hurting. I immediately had the same thoughts, but after hearing that, I'm cool now...

re: Q: Soreness improving -- miscarriage?

The same thing happened to me and I panicked because I had a previous miscarriage. But I'm 22 weeks now with a perfectly healthy baby, so don't worry. Enjoy the pain free boobs while you can because they will soon begin to hurt again when they start filling with milk!!!

Q&A: Why aren't my boobs sore anymore?

Oh this makes me feel slightly better...I woke up panicking! My boobs are still sore, but not quite as bad as it was last week. I'm only 5 weeks though, and I'm wondering if this applies to me since it's still so early. I could just be over thinking (which I tend to do quite frequently) Any feedback?

I am having the same issue. I woke up and my boobs are less sore. I am 6 weeks pregnant right now....could this be normal?

Q&A: Why aren't my boobs sore anymore?

I think I'm finishing up my 8th week and my boobs are a lot less sore too. It's so hard not to worry about every little thing. I feel like my anxiety level has significantly gone up with my hormones. I'm so relieved that I'm not the only one. I feel much better now.

Q&A: Why aren't my boobs sore anymore?

I'm almost 10 weeks, and My boobs feel a whole lot better. I'm already large chested, and it was torture with and without a bra. But I noticed last week, they felt like normal. I'm glad I'm not the only one who was wierded out by this.

Q&A: Why aren't my boobs sore anymore?

I'm at 9 1/2 weeks - and most of my yucky feelings have subsided...much less nausea...no more heartburn...and my boobs definitely are feeling much better. A few weeks ago I started to worry about everything - we had an ultrasound at 7 1/2 weeks and baby was very healthy - SOOOO I'm just racking this up to a good thing :) I love feeling better now...

Q&A: Why aren't my boobs sore anymore?

I am almost 7 weeks and noticed a big change between yesterday and today in the soreness of my breasts. I was concerned, too and I can sympathize with "msretta" up there about being large chested to start and the pain with or without a bra. I'm glad to hear that has happened to others (and at different weeks). I'm a little less stressed now.

Q&A: Why aren't my boobs sore anymore?

Oh my Lord Jesus...thankYou! ha. I was so worried as well!!! I'm around 9 1/2 weeks now and about 3 days ago when I entered into my 9th week, my breasts weren't hurting as much...I still felt soooooo tired though (and constipated, ugh!) Now, 3 days later, only the edges around my breasts are sore and other than that I'm fine. I hope this can relieve my anxiety because I've been tossing and turning and keep waking up at night to go to the bathroom and then I start to think about all my symptoms...good luck ladies :).

Q&A: Why aren't my boobs sore anymore?

Oops and one more thing: I just went for my first prenatal checkup yesterday and my OB said my cervix was so perfectly healthy so that kind of helped out, too ;). Prayer always makes me feel better as well :).

Q&A: Why aren't my boobs sore anymore?

I am almost 6 weeks and I'm freaking out a little cause my boobs felt so much bigger and heavier just two days ago. They still hurt a little, but not like they did. I feel like I'm not far enough along for them to stop hurting! It make me feel better to know that other people are having the same problem though. I'm going crazy waiting for that first ultrasound to tell me that everything is ok!

myszko |

Q&A: Why aren't my boobs sore anymore?

So reassuring to read these posts! I'm 6 weeks tomorrow and was worrying because my breasts felt less sore than they have been! I guess I should be encouraged by the dizziness?

SmallestWilk |

Q&A: Why aren't my boobs sore anymore?

it's funny how we all start freaking out when a painful thing STOPs : ) Oh pregnancy, how you confuse us women so very much. My breast stopped hurting a while ago... and i have hardly any symptoms! i am soaking it up while i can because every one tells me that they will start in my 8th week for sure (im 6 1/2 now) but needless to say, i am paranoid about everything.... just breath! You'll most likely be fine! right? : )

Q&A: Why aren't my boobs sore anymore?

I woke up terrified this morning as I had been able to sleep on my breast last night and they didn't hurt this morning. I have large breast, and I was moving my fingers around trying to feel any points of pain or ache, just very little and very deep under my breast. I'm 6 and 1/2 weeks and the first thing I did was run to my laptop to see if others had felt this way. It is comforting to see others with these issues but I will be so glad to get in for my first doctors visit next week.

Q&A: Why aren't my boobs sore anymore?

My soreness hasn't subsided totally but I notice they hurt less in the morning when I wake and get more sore as the day goes on. By the time I lay down at night they are so sore I can't hardly stand it. I am 5 1/2 weeks now.

jvines |

Q&A: Why aren't my boobs sore anymore?

I am glad others are feeling this way too. I woke up this morning and was surprised that my breasts did not hurt when I got out of bed and started getting ready for work. My DH reassured me that everything was fine, but I still had this worry in the back of my mind all day. It is nice to know there is a place where all of us moms-to-be can share and compare symptoms. :)

Vitnicki83 |

Q&A: Why aren't my boobs sore anymore?

I just want to add that all these feelings are completely normal. I am 12 weeks today and I had all the same feelings of anxiety. I ended up having three ultrasounds already just to ease my anxiety. Each time both my boyfriend and doctor tell me to relax and every time, the baby was perfectly healthy. My breasts definitely fluctuated and they still do. These mixed feelings get better as you ease your mind and body and just try your hardest to let your body and baby do what it knows best :) My anxiety finally rested a bit around week 11... haha last week! Good luck mommies!

Q&A: Why aren't my boobs sore anymore?

Agreed alfinch - i have had my 8 week ultrasound and heartbeat showed 170. Feeling anxiety, I had one ultrasound 2 weeks later because my boobs didin't hurt anymore - heartbeat showed 178 :) worrying stopped then :) heard heartbeat over fetal monitor yesterday at 158 at 11w6d. your post sounded so much like me! :) Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy!

Q&A: Why aren't my boobs sore anymore?

I Have been freaking out over this as well! My boobs almost would feel as if they would explode in the mornings and now when i press on them they hurt but they are not as bad. So i got really worried, also 2 days ago I stopped having all day nausea and just dry heaved in the morning and that was it. freaked me out to feel normal and now im worried i have miscarried sine the symptoms are leaving me at only 7 or 8 weeks. All I can think of is the scene in Marley and Me when Jennifer Aniston goes in for her ultrasound and they cant see the baby or here its heartbeat. TERRIFIED.

Q&A: Why aren't my boobs sore anymore?

i came on my period 10 days early, but before that i have been showing signs of being pregnant. I still get headaches a alot. lower back aches, sore boobs, sensitive nipples, nauseated, im eating more, im always moody now, it's been hard for me to go to sleep, and i have been cramping. It took a pregnancy test but it was negitive. My boyfreind thinks i took it too early. Even though i came on my period, is there a chance that i am pregnant?

rebeccagibbson |

Q&A: Why aren't my boobs sore anymore?

Q&A: Why aren't my boobs sore anymore?

Im 10 weeks and i noticed 2 days ago that my bb's were not near as sore as they were last week. I have an OB appt on Tuesday so hopefully they can give me some reassurance. I have already had an ultrasound at 7 weeks and there was a beautiful visual and audible heartbeat of 149!!

Can I get some updates from the blog below? I am 4-5 wks and my breasts are not hurting anymore, I am so scared. I have been doing fertility efforts for years!!!! I am terrified...those of you that had breasts stop being sore, do you have babies now?? :)

Q&A: Why aren't my boobs sore anymore?

I am so glad I read these posts! I woke up this morning and started freaking out because my breasts didn't hurt as much as they have been and they don't feel as heavy as they have. I've had one miscarriage so I'm worried the same thing is going to happen with this pregnancy. I am 6 weeks along and don't have my first U/S for another 2 weeks. I'm going to try and stay positive, and as long as there's no cramping or bleeding, I'm ok.

aurda |

Q&A: Why aren't my boobs sore anymore?

This really helped, im 5 weeks and my breast hardly hurt anymore but im having morning sickness as we speak, i dont get an ultrasound till 2 more weeksa and as someone mentioned before i think my hormones are making me more panicky with every change and lack of change.... thank u

anaid84 |

Q&A: Why aren't my boobs sore anymore?

Ok. I am 37 weeks and my breasts aren't sore or full like they used to be. I am worried, and this hasn't been reassuring because everyone responding is in their first or second trimester.

lindsayscott80 |

Q&A: Why aren't my boobs sore anymore?

Thank you everyone for your posts. I just turned 6 weeks pregnant and my boobs were so incredibly sore last night. When I woke up this morning I noticed the pain was vaguely there and I began to worry. Also, with my first baby I had severe morning sickness and have only felt slightly queasy thusfar

Gerbs1980 |

Q&A: Why aren't my boobs sore anymore?

Thank you everyone for your posts! I woke up at 5:00 this morning very upset because i had experienced some cramping the evening before and when i woke up my breasts were no longer sore and they seemed to be less big than they were the day before. Since my doctor's office doesn't open until 8:00, i read through everyone's responses obsessively and felt much better. I did end up going to the doctor and getting an ultrasound (i am 9 weeks today but have had 2 MCs so they are pretty cool about my paranoia) and everything looks normal. I saw her wiggle her hips. Yay!!

Q&A: Why aren't my boobs sore anymore?

why-arent-my-boobs-sore-anymore

My boobs were SO SORE in early first trimester! It even hurt to walk. I'm now almost 24 weeks along and they haven't been sore for over 2 months. They're slightly fuller but not way bigger as all the websites and baby boards would have you think they should be. Baby is very healthy with a very strong heartbeat and kicks all the time. Hopefully this helps! Good luck!

Maybe you should go and admire the hottest Newcastle strippers. That could fix your problem:)) It's a joke... but you get the point. Try getting some action. Maybe that will help.

Q&A: Why aren't my boobs sore anymore?

I am measuring 7 wks 1 day pregnant today. Yesterday my breast felt semi full and didn't hurt much at all. This morning I woke up in a panic because my breast dont hurt at all and they don't fell as full anymore. I was sure I have miscarrying, yet no cramping or bleeding and my cervix is closed. After reading everyone elses posts and concersn, I am reassured that me and my baby is fine and there is no need to panic or call my doctor. I caught my pregnancy very early on. I have had 3 sonos already trying to locate the heartbeat. My first visit 2 wks ago showed a yolk sac. Last week showed and baby but didn't see a heartbeat. I go back Tuesday for another sono and the Dr said there will be a heartbeat at this visit. As you can see, now you know my worries. However my breast did start hurting again once I took a shower and got dressed. lol..Thank you for your posts and Im glad this is not only happening to me.

Q&A: Why aren't my boobs sore anymore?

I'm 8 weeks pregnant and I have no symptoms at all. My breasts were hurting on 5 week, closer to 6 week, they came back to almost normal. I freaked out and went to do an ultrasound at 5 weeks 5 days. I saw a yolk sack and the baby, there was a flickering ... as I was told that is a prove of a heart beat. However, no matter how hard my doctor tried, we couldn't listen to the heart beat. I was told that it is still too early for that. as for now, my breasts seem normal.... besides enlarged nipples, no nausea, no food aversions ... My next ultrasound in 3 days. I can't get out of my mind that I am having missed miscarriage. So, I understand your pain and how you feel.

Q&A: Why aren't my boobs sore anymore?

I'm about 12 weeks I was really sore and then they stopped being sore about 2 weeks ago. I think going into the 2nd trimester I've lost a lot of symptoms and am completely freaked out. ultrasound is in two days and like someone posted above I'm terrified it's going to be like that scene in Marley and Me-it's almost like I'm preparing myself to be told I had a miscarriage.
