Breast tenderness: This is a common symptom of pregnancy. There is no magic solution. You can use tylenol (acetaminophen) or acetominophen ( maximum 1 gram every 6 hours ) . Wear a sports bra. Your symptoms should improve as the pregnancy progresses. Don't take motrin, alleve, or Aspirin in pregnancy.
