Mine ache and itch constantly at 31+ weeks.  I'd say normal but you should mention it to the Dr/midwife as I've heard you can have glands that are clogged and those are even more painful.

I had that happen at 23 weeks.  My nipples felt like they were on fire. I asked the dr about it and she said that she had never heard about it.  After a few days, it stopped and the pain then spread to my breasts.  They would feel hot and full and sore.  I am now 34 weeks tomorrow and still have pain in them on and off.  I was told that it was normal and would continue until I gave birth :(

I think that it shocked me more because I never had any soreness, not even at the beginning of the pregnancy. I thought that I had bypassed it all so when it hit, it hit  me hard!  That's okay though, I am almost at the end and it will all be worth it :)  Good luck.

I started to think my jokes had some kind of infection because of how bad tube pain was and one of my breast is already making colostrum. The other one had a white substance that had always been there off and on since I was a little girl. The itching and burning drives me insane. I guess that's normal since everybody else is experiencing pain but now I'm worried about being able to breast feed.

@ Natturalista, how far along are you? I started to produce colostrum at 22 weeks and it was only one.  Now they both do, sometimes it's just clear and other times it's yellowish.

I'm 28 weeks. I just want to make sure that I can breast feed. I know that women can get a type of yeast in their nipples which can cause the baby to have thrush. I wonder if my doc can swab my nipple and check the right one to make sure its not something weird.
