Itchy boobs?

So, I'm thinking this is another "guess I'm 44" thing.

For the last few months, I have noticed my breasts and nips are reallly itchy a few days before O. This month, it happened too, but it hasn't gone away. I'm 4 dpo now and my boobs itchy like crazy. Nothing has changed, that I know of like bra, soap, etc. My dd has gone down to nursing once a night....but she's been doing that for weeks now.

My chart these days is FULL of stuff. I have always charted sore bb's, cramps, acne, bloating, etc. But I'm thinking I need a different barometer to go by these days.....like I should only now note when I have BAD cramps, or horrible acne, or major bloating or a deep achiness, etc.

It's not just b/c I am ttc and notice this more.....I've been charting and ttc for 16 years. I just have more stuff to chart at 44......I know this is probably normal for 44....so I'm guessing the itchy boob thing is too.

Anyone?

I get that from time to time, and I thought I'd rip them off when I was pregnant. I think, for me, it's a reaction to any change in size. I've only had it at all since getting pg with DD. I'd guess your body is just now reacting to reducing nursing, since it takes a while for those hormones to figure stuff out. Of course, I'm almost 43, so maybe you want someone who's 25 to say they get it, too...:)

I guess you're right about the hormone thing. I always think things happen faster than they do. But it's only been 6 weeks since we moved DD in with siblings and she didn't cut down for a couple weeks. So really, only a month. That could be it.

I could about rip the girls off though, they itch so bad!

Yeah, I know about the itchy boobs in pregnancy thing.....but 4 dpo?

Probably nursing hormones are more likely responsible. But....that's a nice thought!
