A member asked:

My breasts have been increasingly sore for the last week.. during pregnancy is it normal for only part of your breast to hurt rather than all over?

Breast pain: Breast pain or soreness during pregnancy can happen throughout the breast or in just one part of the breast. Some pregnant women don't have sore breasts at all. The best thing to do if you're unsure if you're pregnant is to get an at home urine pregnancy test. Best of luck!
