I am 26 weeks pregnant and never had any symptoms since the beginning of the pregnancy until now. My breasts hurt so badly throughout the day and night. It has been 3 weeks now that it is non-stop every day. Is it normal to have this happen now in the second trimester and not have had anything in the first? Also, how long will it last?
when it comes to symptoms in pregnancy everything is normal as long as u feel all right. Usually by the end of 2nd trimester and in 3rd u can experience more discomfort. It will probably last till the end but it's hard to say for sure. I felt normal like not pregnant till about to 26-27 weeks and then just everything changed I now i cant do a lot of things ;)
the symptoms can come and go, but i'd say you may as well get use to this one! from now on the changes is baby will mean more changes to you. Your breast tissue will change as well as you get ready to start producing milk. You may even leak a little prior to giving birth.
At first it kind of does. Once you get the hang of it and empty your breast it'll feel so much better. When your milk supply regulates you won't feel anything but full...
There's a breast feeding forum on here for questions like this
