One of the first changes you can see and feel in pregnancy are the changes in your breasts.
Ok, let’s also look at this in a positive light first. Welcome to the new voluptuous you! Your breasts will more than likely grow over time. Every woman is different so there is no rule to how much your breasts will grow.
However, your breasts may become hard, sore, itchy, veiny, lumpy and extra sensitive. That’s why I wanted to put the positive part first!
Your partner may love your new shape and size but you may find you have to tell him to keep his hands off because they are extra sensitive. Even taking a shower can hurt your nipples.
Your breasts already start producing the pre-milk, known as colostrum as early as 12-18 weeks into your pregnancy. If you squeeze your nipples you may be able to produce a yellowy, thick liquid. Like a liquid gold for your baby at birth! It is quite exciting when you first see it as it is a big sign of your imminent role of being a mother to your growing baby. Full of important nutrients and vitamins, before your main milk supply kicks in.
