Tender Breast??????????

Hello,
I have a question, this morning i woke up and my breast were very soar, just them being against my shirt was a bit painful.
I feel like they are swollen, so I went to the bathroom and saw that the center part of my breat (areola) is very enlarged they look like they are streching , they look huge!
Can any one give me an idea of why this would be? What caused this? I greatly appriciate any input...

Sore, tender and swollen breasts with enlarged areola...are symptoms of pregnancy!  Not sure if you are TTC or not, but if there's any chance you could be pregnant (have had sex) and your period is due or late, I'd take a HPT if I were you!

I meant the tenderness.. but I dont think you would notice a difference that much b4 you even take a HPT... I could be wrong..everyone is different!  If you slept on ur belly that could also cause tenderness =)

if you are due for your period, the sore breasts make perfect sense. i just posted about this a few weeks ago under "sore breasts" you may want to scroll down and read what others wrote. also, the breast cancer forum has a couple posts there too offering up some good info. BTW, i got my period so thats not why mine were sore (pregnancy). i just thought it was strange because they were so sore many weeks before my period and not the usual one week before.

It must be contagious, mine are killing me.  After how many weeks of pregnancy does a women's breast typically become sore?

Sometimes mine are sore for 1 week before AF, sometimes 1 1/2, sometimes 2 weeks, it's even been almost 3 before. My PMS symptoms (all of them) fluctuate with each cycle. I'm pretty sure it depends on estrogen and progesterone levels, which can be different with every cycle. I also need to wear a looser bra the week before AF, and even then, they squish out the top (unwanted cleavage or "quadra-boob" ha-ha, sorry).

Is there anything else other than pregnancy where you get pregnancy-like symptoms where your areolas also enlargen.  I have some pregnancy symptoms but I've just got my usual-flow period 12 days late.  I know pregnancy may still be a possibility as some people get their period right throughout a pregnancy, but is there anything else that could cause pregnancy symptoms and a tender swollen bloated belly, and enlargened areoloas?
