Breast Tenderness (Definition)

Your breasts may provide the first signs to you that you are pregnant. Women's breasts often get extremely tender and begin increasing in size very early in pregnancy. These changes are preparing you for breastfeeding. The size may increase throughout the first 3 months of pregnancy. It is important to wear a bra that fits and supports your breasts throughout your pregnancy. Your nipples and areolas (the darker skin around the nipples) will darken early in pregnancy. By weeks 12-14, you may start leaking colostrum from your breasts. Colostrum is a fluid made up of water, proteins, minerals, and antibodies that you will feed your baby for the first few days ...Read more

I took FOUR pregnancy tests all negative. But, still having symptoms? Everything but tender breasts. Unprotected sex all the time, pregnant or what?

More info needed: Without information on your cycle - ie if you are late- it is impossible to tell you if the pregnancy tests are accurate. The bigger question is this: Are you trying to get pregnant? If so- please make sure that you are taking a prenatal vitamin. If not -you need to use birth control- condoms (STDs and preg) and spermacide/birth control pills/ depo shot etc. to avoid unwanted pregnancy. ...Read more
