Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you that you have a  common and normal symptom of early pregnancy.  It will get better on its own as time goes on.  I hope you get lots of good advice from the other forum members--my best advice is to wear a very tight fitting sports bra if you can tolerate it.
Good luck!

I had this problem. 13 weeks along and still have it. It doesn't really go away just gets less intense. Mine helped by rubbing lotion on them this also helped my nipples from getting dry. Its just your breasts getting ready for milk.
