Breast tenderness

■ 1st trimester

Often the first hint of pregnancy is a change in the way your breasts feel. By a few weeks of gestation, you may notice tingling sensations in your breasts, and they may feel heavy, tender and sore. Your nipples may be more sensitive.

As with breast enlargement, the primary reason for these changes is increased production of the hormones estrogen and progesterone. Breast tenderness normally disappears after the first trimester.

■ Self-care for breast tenderness

A good support bra that fits well can help alleviate breast soreness. Try a maternity bra or a larger-sized athletic bra — these tend to be breathable and comfortable. At night you may feel more comfortable sleeping in a bra.
