It is common for breast soreness to be the first sign of pregnancy, appearing as early as one to two weeks following conception — or, technically, during weeks three and four of pregnancy. The sensation of a painful breast is at its highest during the first trimester since your body is overflowing with estrogen.
Is it normal to have sore breasts in early pregnancy?
Sore Breasts are a common early pregnancy symptom. As early as a week or two after conception, you may notice that your breasts are very painful. According to Jasbir Singh, M.D., an OB-GYN at Baylor Medical Center at Waxahachie in Texas, ″you’re producing so much estrogen and progesterone in early pregnancy that the glands in the breasts start growing.″
When do your breasts get tender during pregnancy?
(Take a look, but don’t touch, my sweetheart.) Breast pain is one of the most frequent symptoms of pregnancy, often beginning around week 4 to week 7 and persisting through the first trimester of the pregnancy cycle. Your breasts, on the other hand, will continue to alter throughout your pregnancy, culminating in the production of milk.
