Will my boobs stop hurting so much?!

I'm 7/8 wks and my boobs are big and sore. They feel so heavy and uncomfortable. Will they stay like this for the next 7/8 months?

Probably not for the whole time, but investing in a good crop top for sleep may help. Bravado we're a godsend for me.

You may also want to get new bras - I had already gone up a cup size at 8 weeks and a larger bra did help.

Congratulations!

I am around the same as you Gracie and I want to chop my boobies off at the moment! My other half (bless him) bought me a pack of those JML belvia bras? The ones that look like crop tops but are apparently supportive like a real bra? Well gotta say they are doing the trick! I think he paid £20 for a pack of four, bit of a passion killer lol but so much better than a proper bra!!

I went up 2 cup sizes by about 12 weeks and another 2 by 17. If your bra is too tight, it really won't be helping. I agree that it's worth trying the crop tops if you're not very big or for around the house.

My boobs felt like bowling balls during the 2 week wait and were like that a while. Can't remember how long exactly, but I think they were ok by my first scan. They're certainly ok now (am 28 weeks).

Mine aren't so sore but they're getting mahaassooove. Like up a cup size a week (week 18 now).

They felt bruised until about week 13, really sore.

I'm 38 weeks and they've started hurting again. Blaahh

I hear you but it does yet better. 8 wks was when I had to buy some new bras (went from a D to an F...) and they were constantly aching/itching. I can't remember exactly when it stopped but I'm 22 wks now and it's just occasionally they itch a bit. They haven't grown much since either.

My boobs killed when u was in the early stages ( that's what made me poas!) I'm 27 weeks now and they are fine and have been for a while. I hope yours calm down soon OP!

I'm also feeling really weak and sick, mornings are worse. No energy at all. I do the smallest thing, like clean teeth, and I have to lie down again. Not good when trying to get myself and dd ready. I just want to sleep.

Urgh just came home as was sick in town, then threw up twice back home. Hope it's a one off but got a feeling it won't be. I don't remember feeling this bad first time round.
