Hi I am 17 weeks gone and am on my 3rd baby. I am having trouble with my left boob that I did not experience in the last 2 pregnancies, its enlarged considerably more than the other one (yes I know they are meant to get bigger but this is really different) and the areola has stretched again I know this is normal but its more stretching below and much more than the other boob. I above the areola the the skin looks bruised and I am getting a stinging pain under the breast on the left one, its a similar stinging pain to the one I would get when I was lactating. Has my body gone into overdrive and is trying to lactate now? should I express? I have tried to see my MW today but I could not get an appointment to see her and teh surgery wont let me call her work mobile and only give me the central number so I have had to leave a message its very frustrating. Help? x

Abcess or blocked duct? Seems very early but doesn't sound right. I would call triage.

Yep - my midwives say to call them for any out of hours concerns. Otherwise I'd call nhs 24 (or direct- can't remember what it's called in England) and ask advice stressing u r pregs. They could get u an out of hours gp appointment if it's starting to really hurt.
