Pregnancy is an amazing time of change, both physically and emotionally. One of the most noticeable physical changes is what happens to your breasts. They may grow larger, become more tender, and develop new veins. These changes are all normal and part of the process of preparing your body for breastfeeding.
What to expect
Breast changes typically start in the early weeks of pregnancy. You may notice that your breasts are fuller and more tender. They may also become darker in color. As your pregnancy progresses, your breasts will continue to grow and may become engorged. This is because your body is starting to produce milk.
In addition to these physical changes, you may also experience some emotional changes related to your breasts. You may feel more self-conscious about them or feel the need to protect them. These feelings are normal and will likely subside after your baby is born.
How to cope with breast changes
There are a few things you can do to cope with the changes that happen to your breasts during pregnancy:
- Wear a supportive bra. A good bra will help to reduce discomfort and support your growing breasts.
- Apply a cold compress. If your breasts are sore, applying a cold compress can help to reduce inflammation.
- Take a warm bath or shower. The warmth of the water can help to relax your muscles and relieve discomfort.
- Talk to your doctor. If you are concerned about any changes in your breasts, be sure to talk to your doctor. They can help you to understand what is happening and offer advice on how to cope.
