In brief: Sore Breasts
Hormonal changes during pregnancy cause increased blood flow and changes in the breast tissue, which may make your breasts feel swollen, sore, tingly, and unusually sensitive to touch.
Some women describe the sensation as an exaggerated version of how their breasts feel before their period.
