lingering symptoms?

i keep reading that breast/nipple tenderness usually goes away by about week 14.  i'm 15 weeks today and that shows no signs of going away any time soon.

anyone else still dealing with soreness/tenderness?  i wonder if it has to do with more than hormones, like the growth in size?  i'm normally a C and i'm now pushing a DD, so i'm wondering if that's part of the soreness... still hoping i don't end up with stretch marks on the ta-tas!

My breast doesn't seem to be sore but the rest of my body is!!! I have in fact noticed that my breast are getting much bigger. So I see where the 10 pounds I've gained gone to lol

@ j8 my dh started getting pimples on his face as if he was having hormonal changes... weird right! He's craving panda express and chipolete ewwww

I don't have breast tenderness anymore, but I do have extra sensitive nipples. I apply lotion 2-3/day to try to prevent stretchmarks. Genetics play a huge role, along with how much weight you gain, skin elasticity, if you stay hydrated (to prevent dry/cracked skin), etc. My mom didn't get stretch marks and she had my sister and I 11 months apart (so she got pregnant 2 months after my sister was born), I drink 8-9 cups of water/day, and have only gained 4lbs so I figured if I can keep this up I'm good. Now I know if your nurse your breast get bigger too because of the milk supply, so that may be an issue, but it's just one of the many battle scars of motherhood.

It's funny because my husband has been getting cravings, having heartburn/indigestion, bloating, etc- I'm surprised with how much this pregnancy is affecting him physically.

Thanks! Me too!

I just got stretchmarks on one (.) and I didn't get them til after I'd given birth with DS, I got a blockage on that side when he was a few months old and it took like 24 hours to get it to clear so it was full all that time and that's when I got the stretchmarks, or baby lines as I prefer to call them!
