One of my breasts is firmer than usual - what's that about?

One of my breasts feels firmer than usual. It started last week with little moments of tightening - sort of like the breastfeeding 'let-down' feeling. It now feels firmer/rounder although DH had a feel last night and reported no difference at all.

To put it in context, it has been almost 4 years since I stopped breastfeeding. My period could be due - I have a fairly erratic cycle but I think if I am pre-menstrual this would be a short cycle, however, I have a huge spot on my chin and am feeling 'angsty' so the signs are there.

Do other people experience a similar feeling?

DH should know best as he is the more experienced one in handling. smile

Yes, he perhaps cops a feel more than I do but it feels different from the inside.

As it happens, my period has started this evening - a mere 24 days cycle. My hormones must be confused.

Always a good idea to have these things checked out anyway.

Oh dear, I think milk started coming out of one today. Crikey. I am going to have to see the Gp. A choice of 2 old blokes. Oh joy.
