i think i read about this but i am not positive. I am starting to feel tender there again (was very swollen and tender in the beginning). Is this normal? I am sure it is.. Anyone else having this symptom?

Oh my yes!!! They have been so unbelievable tender and sore that I have to keep a bra on 24 hours a day because otherwise they hurt like crazy! I honestly don't remember having this at the end of my other pregnancies, but I'm glad I'm not the only one.
