on and off breast tenderness

I'm 5w 3days and my breast tenderness seems to go from "don't even breathe in my direction" to barely there. Everytime it goes away I worry there's an problem. Anyone else have symtoms come and go in first trimester?

Yup! My boobs are only small and I couldn't even touch them at first. Putting on a bra was hell but helped once it was done up. I slept with one on for night time too, just to keep them supported.
Tenderness died off around 12 weeks and then had another spurt of tenderness shortly after. 26 weeks now and the tenderness comes and goes.
I think it's all down to your hormones and your boobs getting ready for baby's arrival

I posted similar to this earlier. For days they’ve been massive and same as you, ‘don’t breathe in my direction’ to today I swear they’ve shrunk to normal size. I’m a 36B so easy to tell when they’re bigger or smaller and they’re definitely near original size. I’m 6+4 and worrying so much about this. I’ve not been able to lay on my side but now I can lay on my front! I’ve also lost my nausea.

I’m 5 weeks too and have been feeling like this too... had a MC in jan so hopeful I’m worrying about nothing x
