Full Breasts

Is it normal for your breasts to feel so heavy/full that they hurt just hanging there at 4/5 weeks? It's been 6 years since my last pregnancy so I feel like a new expecting mom all over again.

Yes... Mine seem to get worse at night for whatever reason. Most nights I can't even sleep on my side because the weight from one boob on another is just too painful

omg, from weeks 6-9 roughly I'd sit around with no shirt, no bra, with a cold rag on mine! I found out I was pregnant at 6 weeks, but my boobs had been KILLING ME for probably 2-3 weeks.. I assumed it was my period coming, but they became unreal!! I waited 2 weeks after my missed period to take a test, but sure enough.. sore boobs & nipples were my first sign!!

I DON'T miss that!! lol I just admitted to my fiancé last night: I was letting out little chihuahua out one night (it was cold outside) so I decided to lift up my shirt & lightly push my boobs up against the door.. because it was freezing cold lol!!! it felt soooo good, gosh.. I was miserable haha!! it'll get better!! (((:

Mine hurt all the time too i hope that means they'll get big enough to feed the baby (they're small lol )!
